All agents will experience moments of struggle while growing their business. However, regardless of the amount of tasks waiting to be completed, it is important to remember that selling insurance requires consistency, focus and persistence.
Successful insurance agents understand the need to stay focused. They cannot allow themselves to become distracted as that leads to a decrease in productivity. There is no time for excuses for distractions that everyone faces each day. Therefore, it is crucial to dedicate a couple hours in the work day to first prioritize the most important tasks and then to complete them.
Staying consistent goes hand in hand with being focused. If everyday you break your day down into various time slots allocated for each task you need to get done, then you will see yourself succeed in obtaining leads and growing your agency. Plan out your work and form a routine for each day at work. Most importantly, stay consistent when you contact your leads and set up a flow of potential customers.
Lastly, even in the face of failure, stay persistent. If you want to continue to grow as a sales agent take chances and be active. Highly effective agents go beyond what is expected by forming a strong work ethic that aids them in accomplishing their goals.
