Episode 44 : Ultimate Client Avatar

Your Client Avatar To Ultimate Profit

An ideal client profile should be based on interviews and research from your existing and lost clients, prospects, and your team members. The end result is that you create a ideal client avatar whom embodies your best client.

The client profile map will give you a better understanding of how your ideal client makes decisions, what keeps them up at night, what their expectations are from their insurance agent, and the average sales cycle for each type. Using this information, you can mold your sales process to your prospects. This will help you to better understand when to provide the proposal, what type of nurturing campaigns you should set up, what information the prospect needs and when, and how often you should communicate with the potential client.

Creating an ideal client profile — or a few — will help you to attract, qualify, and sell to only these clients. And this is how you can truly stand out from the competition.

This process can also be used for identifying your ideal referral partners, your ideal acquisition prospects and the list goes on.  Most importantly you must remember, “it’s all about them and never about you.”

Now go out and implement, execute and take action!

Thank you for the opportunity to help your grow your business, create financial security and have more freedom to live life on your terms!

Episode 42 : Authenticity

Authenticity is about presence, living in the moment with conviction and confidence and staying true to yourself.

Today we are going to be talking about a topic that seems to come up again, and again, and again.  And it answers the question, the age-old marketing question…

“Why should people do business with you over any and all other options?”

Yes, social proof and all of that is in play, but the word I really haven’t dug into is the ‘A’ word…  AUTHENTICITY

“To be authentic, we must cultivate the courage to be imperfect — and vulnerable. We have to believe that we are fundamentally worthy of love and acceptance, just as we are. I’ve learned that there is no better way to invite more grace, gratitude and joy into our lives than by mindfully practicing authenticity.”— Brené Brown

An authentic person puts the people around them at ease, like a comforting, old friend who welcomes us in and makes us feel at home.

There’s never any doubt or questioning the integrity of an authentic individual. Their behavior, in terms of ethics and morals, is as predictable as snow during wintertime in Minnesota. You know what you’re going to get.

Thank you for this and every opportunity to share with you.

What more can we do for you?

Episode 40 : The Elusive Second P

You’ve hired the right people on your team, now what…

You must create world-class processes for them to work within!

Now that you’ve all the right people on your bus, you need to start building your world-class processes for your team of A-Players to work within.

Regardless of what industry you are in, or the type of customers you serve, the challenge of managing process flow and operations across diverse platforms and systems is universal.

In this episode we will discuss a few of the key processes we have designed and implemented within our agency business to increase productivity and client satisfaction:

1. Claims Process – Insurance stinks… until you need it. Your clients buy insurance to make sure their hard earned assets are protected when things happen, so when those times come be sure you are there for them.
2. Task Organizers – A simple system to document your processes, create video tutorials and easily update as systems change.
3. Intranet – This is our internal hub that houses our training, processes, production logs, team calendars, and everything to run a successful agency business.
4. PX3 System for Complete Team Accountability – You have created goals for yourself and the growth of your agency.  What are you doing to pass down this mindset and goal setting skills to your team?

If you want more detail on any of these strategies, you’re invited to join our team and hundreds of other forward-thinking agency owners at the upcoming BeUnstoppable Bootcamp – check out all of the details at www.BeUnstoppableBootcamp.com.

Episode 39 : Team First

When I started in 1986 I began selling homeowners insurance out of the gold book, an annual that was published by every county in California showing all information of about residential property. I helped my dad grow his agency until 1998, when by mutual agreement I ventured out to start my own scratch agency.

When I left to my own devices I discovered how critically important the 3rd P was going to be to my success, if not my very existence.  I discovered I was somewhat of a natural at marketing and that was key .  When you think about it the insurance business is really pretty simple, the same as every other business, you need to get more clients and keep the ones you’ve got.  It’s that it in a nutshell.  To be successful at this you must design and implement ways to serve the client better than anyone else.

Of course while that concept is simple, the implement implementation is a bit more complex.  You need to understand the client so well that you can sit in their chairs and imagine the risks that they face in both their business and personal lives and then determine the optimal way to mitigate or transfer that risk.  And no one person can do this on their own.

I recognized early on that I needed to build a team of people who would compliment each other’s abilities so that our agency could provide the best protection, help out when claims occurred and be consistently proactive.  In essence the, the agency started with me, but I knew it had to end with us.

I hope this podcast helps you create the team that will take your agency business to the next level and beyond!

Now implement, execute and take ACTION!

Episode 38 : Become The Leader You Would Follow – Part 2

Develop The Leaders Around You…

Welcome to Part 2 of Becoming The Leader You Would Follow.  In Part 1 of this series you learned the about the first 2 keys of 4 to leading a successful team (Episode 37) :

1. Training & Coaching

2. Team Motivation

In this podcast you will discover the next two key factors in developing a highly successful team:

3. Team Accountability –

Leaders have a huge challenge when it comes to accountability.  They must both visibly model personal accountability and instill accountability in their team members.

When people don’t feel accountable, they drop to the lowest possible level of performance that their leader will accept. The accountable leader assumes responsibility for all team members, vendors, customers, and the organization as a whole. These leaders help team members shift into the “high” performance zone. This zone is where team members do their best to take responsibility for their individual success and for the success of the team and the organization.

4. Developing The Leaders Around You –

Why do some people achieve great personal success, yet never succeed in building a business or making an impact in their organization?

It’s not enough for a leader to have vision, energy, drive, and conviction. If you want to see your dream come to fruition, you must learn how to develop the leaders around you. Whether you’re the leader of an independent insurance agency, non-profit organization, or Fortune 500 company, Developing the Leaders Around You can help you to take others to the limits of their potential and your organization to a whole new level.

I hope this helps.  If you can take just one thing out of this podcast series and implement it within your agency business, you will be well on your way to becoming the leader you would follow!

No go make a difference, be unstoppable and leave no regrets!

Episode 37 : Become The Leader You Would Follow – Part 1

Would I Follow Me?

It is my sincere belief that you have unique gifts and talents that have ONLY been given to YOU.

That you have a calling in your life and a significant purpose to live out.

YOU ARE A LEADER

In your own special way…you influence others.  You engage your kids, friends, & co-workers into your vision,  ideas and choices.

This is when most people think… “Who me? I’m not a leader I’m just a ______.”

That is total BS!

YOU ARE A LEADER

You are called to a specific purpose and my job and goal is to help draw it out of you.

To light up that flame inside your belly to go for your dreams and to live your life to the fullest every single day.  To be the best version of yourself which will in turn inspire those around you to also unleash their true potential as well.

If you resonate with any part of what I’m saying then I want to really encourage you to explore learning more about growing your leadership skills.  Whether you’re a parent, salesperson, or entrepreneur…you ARE a leader and you influence those around you.

It’s time to master your leadership skills, grow the leaders around you and build your legacy… no more playing it safe or being “average.”  Ask the question “Would I follow me?”

Make a difference, be unstoppable and leave no regrets!

What more can we do for you?

Episode 36 : Ankle Biters Not Allowed

No matter what business you’re in, knowing your client base is the key to your success.  The more you understand who your top clients are, and more importantly who the ‘ankle biters’ are, the better your chances of growing your business.

Well-nurtured clients positively impact your agency in a variety of ways: they renew their insurance programs and add more lines of business, tell their friends or colleagues about your agency and give you constructive feedback.

In today’s world, positive word-of-mouth referrals have a lot of value and can go a long way toward helping you expand your client base.  Most of the positive referrals come from your highest-value, most loyal clients.  Like hangs with like… Your AAA clients hang with other AAA prospects.  So what are you doing to solidify those relationships?

Neither prices nor range of services can attract and retain clients. What does go a long way toward helping consumers form loyalties is superior customer experience.

In this episode you’ll discover ways to retain your top clients and move them up the ladder to raving fans!

Now go out implement, execute and take massive action!

Episode 35 : Your Destination Is Your Responsibility

My granddaughter McKenna and I were watching “Alice in Wonderland” over the weekend….

“Excuse me, Sir,” Alice inquires. “Could you tell me which road to take?”
Wisely, the caterpillar asks, “Where are you going?”
Somewhat dismayed, Alice responds, “Oh, I don’t know where I am going, Sir.”
“Well,” replied the caterpillar, “if you don’t know where you are going, it really doesn’t matter which road you take.”

    ~ (Alice in Wonderland – Lewis Carrol)

Mckenna became complexed and asked, “Grandpa what does the caterpillar mean?”  As they say, when the student is ready the teacher will appear!

With a smile on my face, I replied, “Before we go anywhere, a little planning needs to be done. Where do we want to go? Let’s take a trip from California to New York. How are we going to get there? Let’s drive! What supplies are we going to need? Sunglasses, some money, snacks for the trip, CD’s… But, don’t forget the map. The easiest way to plan for a trip is with a road -map.”

When using a road map you are in essence setting goals for the trip, just like if you were setting your goals for life. The road map can:

· locate specifically where it is you’re going (long term goal),
· determine how many planned stops to take along the way (short-term goal),
· tell you how many miles to the next destination (daily goal)
· tell you the alternate routes along the way, and
· help locate tourist stops in route (you should always enjoy the journey ).

Are you working your butt off trying to get to the next level, but find yourself overwhelmed with new ideas, unable to focus on the specific direction to take your business?

If you’re tired of living this way then I have a solution for you.  The fastest and most effective way to improve your productivity and create more simplicity and consistency in your business is to set your goals and be accountable for your actions to reach those goals.

On this podcast we will discuss how you can properly set your goals for the upcoming year and tips on how to stay on track for MASSIVE Success!
