How To Have an Objection Free Close…

Any “objection-free” sales process starts with a thorough fact-finding conversation. As insurance and financial services professionals, we’ve been trained to work by appointments and to chase the metric of at least 3 per day; anything less isn’t successful.

You can have way more conversations than you can have appointments.

Your doctor or dentist? Yea, probably not something that excites you. People don’t want to come see you for an appointment. That’s why informal fact-finding conversations work so well; and not only when you have an appointment, you can turn everyday encounters into a prospecting conversation: – Parent-teacher conferences. – Standing in line at a coffee shop. – When a prospect calls to inquire about your services…don’t just answer their question, turn it into a conversation. Are you starting to see the opportunities? They are endless. I’m sure you can think of countless other scenarios that I haven’t mentioned. We live in a world that has more opportunities than any time in history. It is one of the best times to be a financial advisor. – Eszylfie Taylor
