Why It’s Time to Take a More Relaxed Approach to Insurance Sales

Let’s be honest… it doesn’t take a salesperson to know what other salespeople are trying to do. Your clients aren’t salespeople, and they know that, under your official title as an insurance agent, that’s what you are. You want them to spend money, and you want them to spend it with you because that earns you money. Naturally, you’re going to meet some resistance. That doesn’t mean you’re set up to fail, though. If you take a more relaxed approach to insurance sales, we think you’ll see more success. Learn why.
