Insurance agents need to sell life insurance as protection instead of a product. When coverage is sold as protection, consumers often respond more positively to it. Of course, not every agent knows how to sell life insurance today. It’s a difficult industry that requires a flexible and knowledgeable approach. The most successful life agents have had to change their game plan multiple times in their careers.
Life insurance protects peoples’ loved ones after they pass on. For that reason, agents cannot sell this protection as a product. Nobody wants to think about their own mortality, nor do they want to feel like money is being wasted. In the end, the right approach to selling life coverage leads to excellent results for everyone. Agents benefit in commissions, but the insured benefits the most with proper protection. Life agents have a tough but rewarding job.
