Referrals, referrals, referrals! You’ve probably heard that referrals are great to get and have the highest win percentage when compared to other forms of prospecting. And, you’d be right to think that because it’s true. However, most insurance agents and agencies do either a very poor job at systematically asking for (and receiving) referrals from their client base or COIs, or they have no process for referrals at all. In this throw backepisode of the Millionaire Insurance Producer podcast, host Charles Specht will give you a step-by-step process you can use to get more profitable referrals from your clients and COIs.
