When your site performs optimally, there is no better tool for driving new business. It is the “always on” machine that continues to drive sales even when your insurance office team are sleeping. But, just because you have a freshly created website, it doesn’t mean the sales will begin rushing in automatically.
There is usually much apprehension when it comes to making sales calls. Some sales professionals will visibly tremble with fear at the thought of picking up the phone and cold calling a total stranger, while others just seem naturally adept at turning prospects into customers. Regardless of your sales call comfort levels, the fact remains that it is a necessary aspect for successful insurance agencies.
Like all businesses, running an insurance agency has its risks. From personal to client risk, it is impossible for agents to perceive all that can go wrong in their line of work. Furthermore, spending too much time pondering disastrous scenarios is not healthy. There are some risks that cannot be ignored. They must be faced head on if you are to protect your business and the clients you serve.
Knowing, assessing, and safeguarding against common risks helps to avoid surprises and mitigate any negative impact on insurance agencies. So, the question is, how insulated are you from risk?
