Like successful people in any field, effective insurance agents too have certain habits or traits that make them successful.
Highly successful insurance agents are hungry for more
Yes, thats goes with any profession, but insurance agents who are hungry for more becomes more successful that their fellow agents. They never look back at work not done with regret but immediately moves forward to new prospective clients or follow up with not yet closed leads. They are confident yet humbled and always ready to learn things in order to be successful.
Successful insurance agents find time to be available
Insurance agents are like advisors or consultants to their clients. Customers often become friend and agents develop long term friendships with them. The nature of this profession, thus, requires you to be available when required. Highly successful insurance agents make themselves available, not when it is most convenient for themselves, but rather those they would meet with. They will always return the call and never make excuse for not having time to be available for new prospects as well as existing clients.
Successful insurance agents are highly focused
The most successful insurance agents doesn't allow them to get distracted and stay focused. They pay attention to their current tasks and prospect and prepare well in advance before meeting their clients or returning a call. We all know that highly focused people are simply mindful and similarly insurance agents too are fully engaged in activities, get more done and deal with challenges efficiently.
They understand the importance of persistence
Most of the successful insurance agents understand the power of persistence. They, in pursuit of their goals get out of the office to prospect. Being a successful agent isn't always easy and many a times insurance agents lose a big sale or a big customer, but rather than giving up successful insurance agents concentrate on all the reasons they can succeed. Successful insurance agents are more persistent in pursuit of their goals.
Successful insurance agents help & care about their clients
Most of the successful insurance agents are value driven and they genuinely help and care about their clients needs. They will first understand their clients need and then suggest them with the most suitable policies to them. They will never push for particular policy or hard sell anything. The fact is that majority of customers can sense the genuine trait of agent (or any other sales person) and therefore being value driven helps in closing the deal.
