Annuity Marketing and Annuity Selling
Would you like to spend your day talking to annuity buyers? It's
possible and here's a system that allows you to do that.
First, understand that no one wants to buy an annuity. Annuity
marketing really means finding people interested in benefits
of annuity ownership. Annuity selling is NOT a presentation
about annuities and the features and benefits. Annuity selling
is a conversation where you ask your prospect what's important
to them about making investments or putting their money to work.
If they mention aspects like safety and tax benefits and no surprises,
you're likely speaking to someone who is an annuity buyer. You
didn't find their name on an annuity list or some other shotgun
prospecting approach. So how do you find these people?
You offer them information-a booklet, a seminar, a webinar on saving taxes.
Remember, people don't want to buy an annuity-they want the benefits
that the annuities provide. But these tools allow you to establish
your credibility with a potential annuity buyer and position yourself
as a professional and not a sales person. Annuity marketing is
about having the prospect contact you in response to something you
have offered and an item they desire (e.g. a booklet entitled
Strategies to Help Retirees Reduce Taxes)." Annuity selling
is having a conversation with your prospect about the benefits they
want (not about the features of your annuity)! When there is a
match between what you new prospect desires and the benefits of
your product, and only then, do you ever mention annuities.
Therefore, maximizing your annuity sales is as follows:
- Annuity Marketing-marketing
some benefit of annuities in an educational way and having the
prospect contact you
- Next, you set an appointment about their issues, goals
and objectives (not about annuities)
- Annuity selling-a conversation where you uncover the new prospect's desires,
determine if they match with the annuities that you offer, and then convert your
new prospect to an annuity buyer
