The Voluntary Benefits market across the United States is becoming increasingly saturated. More and more insurance brokers and agents are expanding into the supplemental and voluntary product line offerings. With the increase in brokers, getting in front of decision makers becomes increasingly difficult. How do you stand out from the crowd of agents and brokers in order to build your business and drive bottom line revenue?
Appointment setting and cold calling are one of the most effective ways to grow your business. But this is only half of the battle for today’s insurance brokers and agents. The end game is closing the business. However, you can’t close business and drive revenue unless you get in front of enough prospects. The question is – how do you get in front of prospects so that you have the opportunity to close the business?
It is critical to get in front of the right prospects – decision makers who are interested in your product or service. It is imperative to differentiate yourself in the marketplace in order to drive that interest. A specific skillset is required in order to do this over the phone.
At LEADs we specialize in cold calling and appointment setting for the Voluntary Benefits industry. We partner with brokers and agents to help them stand out from the competition. In order for brokers and agents to get in front of enough prospects and drive revenue, they must have appointments with decision makers. Brokers and agents specialize in presenting Voluntary Benefits, not in cold calling and appointment setting. Therefore, the answer is to outsource this function so that the focus can remain on the ultimate task at hand – closing business.
Targeting small to medium sized businesses is an effective way for brokers and agents to reach and surpass their revenue quotas. Until recently the Voluntary Benefits industry has primarily targeted larger prospect companies – leaving the small to medium sized business industry virtually untapped. There are many small businesses across the United States and their need for the Voluntary Benefit product offerings is greater than that of large businesses – simply because they typically can’t afford to provide benefits to their employees. Small to medium sized businesses are eager to offer benefits at no cost to the company.
At LEADS we specialize in cold calling and appointment setting based on your specific needs. We target prospects for cold calling based on your specified parameters and criteria. The bottom line is we set ‘em, you sell ‘em!
