Previously in our sales training blog series, we covered what agents need to do AFTER the sale to offer good customer service so clients don’t lapse their policy. In this post, we’ll explore two other activities that agents can utilize after the sale to get the most out of their lead budgets: cross-selling additional policies to their leads and clients, and seeking referrals from them.

Previously in our sales training blog series, we talked about making the sale with polished Final Expense or Medicare Supplement presentations. We even looked at common objections agents encounter when trying to close leads on a plan. Now we’re going to cover what happens AFTER you make a sale, take an application, and enroll a senior in a plan.
One of the most talked about parts of the sales process is the art and science of handling objections. Agents will go to great lengths to find the latest script to turn a stubborn lead into an agreeable client – like they were spells from Merlin’s magical spell-book or something.

To do that, you need to develop a lead management system to keep your sales pipeline flowing.
Because no matter how well the first call goes, not every single lead you contact will be ready to sign up (or even qualify for) an insurance plan right away — in fact, most of them won’t.

Your initial approach to each lead, and the first impressions they form, can make or break your closing rate and frame your entire client relationship. Here’s how 35 agents contact leads and handle objections to make the best impression.
