Recent Action in the Sell Term Life Community:

The major discussions in the Sell Term Life Community this week can teach you:

  • This week in the community, there was a thread determining how well your website is performing. A lot of agents think that the number of leads to your site is the ultimate metric but let me share some insight. I have a website that has over 200 leads per month, and another that has twice that.  They’re both submitting around the same amount of premium, with the same amount of traffic as well. Yet, they are doing the same amount of business. The discussion continues on what we really need to be focusing on.
  • We also discuss an effective listening tip to get your prospects to feel like they’re being heard and this tip also encourages them to talk more, because you’re demonstrating that you have sincere interest in what they’re saying. You’ll be surprised how many agents don’t use this. It’s a simple tweak that anyone can do in a presentation that can change the way a prospect interacts with you.
  • There was also a thread where another agent was just getting started with his website and wanted some key words to target. The community was able to give him great advice on what to use .
