Follow Up To Make More Insurance Sales Appointments!
12/17/2021 – You met someone at a party who is in a position to use your financial services. You had the “What do YOU do?” conversation, and you exchanged business cards. And you hope they will call so you can follow up and make an insurance sales appointment.
After all, if they are interested in learning more about how you might help them with their finances, then you can just assume they will call you, right? I mean, if you follow up and contact them to try to learn more about their situation. And, If you tell them more about your services, then they will think you are needy or pushy. Or that you have some ulterior motive, won’t they?
So, you do not try to approach them. Although you had hoped they were impressed and interested. But they do not call. And you do not make an insurance sales appointment!
We give ourselves many reasons for not following up with the people we meet. We tell ourselves…
- If they are interested, they will contact me.
- If I call them, I will be seen as pushy or desperate for their business.
- And I have more immediate and more important things to do.
But all of these “reasons” are the work of the “But” Monster. They are simply excuses you make to not follow up… because you are afraid of being rejected.
Let’s look at these excuses more closely:
If they’re interested, they’ll contact me to make an insurance sales appointment. On occasion, this does happen. But maybe they’ve misplaced your card and forgotten your last name. Or maybe they just got too busy with their work! If they seemed interested when you met, shouldn’t you contact them now? Before you are sure that they aren’t interested?
If I contact them to make an insurance sales appointment, I’ll be seen as pushy. If you are pushy, then you will be seen as pushy. Contacting them is just a way of asking if they’d like to continue the dialogue you started with them.
If I contact them to make an insurance sales appointment, they’ll think I’m desperate for business. Most people view a follow-up contact as an expected business practice. They may or may not be receptive to it, but they will not see it as needy unless you make it appear that way.
I have more immediate and more important things to do. How many of the things you’re doing are more important than making an insurance sales appointment to bring in new clients?
Do you want to make an insurance sales appointment?
The Follow-up contact works best when you do it right away! Then, it is easy. You can choose to make a phone call, which is the most effective way! Or you can send a hand-written note, which is viewed as special and personal. But involves a precious investment of time, including waiting for a delivery. Or you can send an email, which is not as personal but can be done instantaneously, either the next day or over the weekend.
Here’s an example of a follow-up email or hand-written note:
It was a pleasure meeting you at Pete’s party last Friday night.
You mentioned your son was sick. I hope he’s feeling better!
I had the sense from what you told me about your situation that I might be able to help. If you’d like to get together soon and talk more about it, let me know.
Either way, I hope our paths cross again.
Your follow-up call might sound something like this:
Hi, Tom. This is Sandy Schussel. We met at Pete’s party last Friday… I had the sense from what you told me about your situation that I might be able to help you. We could talk more about it now if this is a good time, or if you’d prefer, we could pick a time to get together in person. What do you think?
Follow-up contacts, especially phone calls, open opportunities you might never have expected to come through. Create a mindset that following up is one of your most important jobs and that it can truly help you grow your insurance sales.
In the meantime, keep REACHING…
Are You Here To Help Families? Then follow up?
How many people have you met in the past year? Did you have the “What do YOU do?” conversation? Did you use your Unique Selling Proposition? Were they interested in your services? Did you follow up to ask questions to make an insurance sales appointment? Why not?
Is a reason you don’t follow up with people to make an insurance sales appointment because you lack confidence in what you do? Do you see yourself as just a salesperson? Is it time for you to get the training you need to really help families? Do you want to make the transition to Truster Advisor? So you feel good about yourself and your services?
What if you had the support you need so you are confident in your ability to do the right thing for your clients? Would it make it easier to follow up with people to make an insurance sales appointment?
When Will Learn To Help Families To Find The Money To Take Action?
The reason so many agents struggle to make insurance sales appointments is they don’t have a follow-up plan with the people they know and meet. They don’t follow up to let people know how they are helping families. They don’t follow up with Booklets, Free Reports. and monthly Client Newsletters. Why would anyone want to make an insurance sales appointment with you if they just see you as a salesperson?
The more people know about you and how you help families – the more confident you will feel to follow up and make an insurance sales appointment!
