This Is A Business of Percentages – How Do You Compare To Industry Benchmarks?

Modern Life Insurance Selling Podcast


This week, we’ll be covering a topic every life insurance agent selling over the phone should understand; how to know if your sales and processing are in line with industry benchmarks. I’ve invited Nic West back on to the podcast to lend his expertise to the discussion.

Nic has personally placed over 6000 policies in force over the phone and is now overseeing a life insurance call center where he has a huge sample size of data. In today’s episode, you’ll hear some raw numbers and crucial insight on what percentages and benchmarks can do for you.
