The sale of annuities can be a difficult field. Annuities are a very specific product that’s geared towards a relatively narrow segment of the population. As such, each individual lead carries a great deal more weight in annuity sales than in other insurance products. Brokers accustomed to selling auto insurance or health insurance will quickly discover that the relative dearth of opportunities in the annuity field fundamentally changes the nature of their field. Smart brokers need to find ways to focus in on each and every lead and ensure that they’ve pursued every opportunity until it’s been completely exhausted. In this pursuit, a Lead Management System like Leads360 is an excellent tool for making sure that each and every lead is fully explored. Leads360 can help an annuity broker identify the best leads to pursue, nurture those leads over time, and ensure that their potential clients are given every opportunity to fully research their decision and make the right investment.
Annuities brokerage requires a delicate approach. In most cases, potential clients are struggling with a difficult decision that could have a profound impact on their lives. As such, each and every lead requires careful consideration and nurturing over time. Lead Management Systems are designed to automate the sales process and ensure that nurturing e-mails are sent out automatically and at the appropriate intervals. What’s more, sales automation means that Leads360 organizes leads for your sales team and sends out the e-mails automatically, allowing your sales team to focus their efforts elsewhere. Data collected from millions of leads by Leads360 has demonstrated that nurturing e-mails are an excellent way to keep working a lead that doesn’t close immediately. In the case of annuity brokerage, the likelihood of a lead closing immediately is unlikely at best. This makes it all the more important that annuity brokers have a solid plan to nurture leads over time.
It’s also important for annuity brokers to carefully consider each element of their sales practices to identify any area where they aren’t achieving best practices. With fewer leads to work, brokers need to carefully hone their approach so that they can be sure each one’s been worked properly each time. In the constant pursuit of best practices, Leads360 is an essential tool by carefully tracking metrics and then analyzing the data collected. Each and every lead may respond to different approaches in different ways, and Leads360 can help brokers identify those trends so that they can hone their approach over time. Given that each and every lead is so important, working leads based on past data allows brokers to avoid repeating mistakes and to identify successful strategies so they can be repeated.
In annuity brokerage, the relatively small number of leads means that each and every lead must be worked to its fullest extent. The sales automation, lead tracking, and data collection of a Lead Management System can be an invaluable tool in helping a broker successfully make the most out of selling annuities.
