The Internet is creating a new sales environment that demands you, as a financial professional, have an online presence. In the past, selling financial and insurance products relied on making a great first impression with potential clients and building relationships. You focused on meeting new clients through referrals and cultivating a strong reputation within your community and industry.
As a financial professional who helps your clients manage their money, you’ve probably seen them earn their wealth in all manner of ways. Many likely have successful business or investment ventures, while others may be the beneficiary of a trust fund.
Do your clients have enough life insurance? Of course, as their agent or financial advisor, you do your best to look out for your clients’ best interest, but recent information shows that there are certain groups of Americans who are not only underinsured, but also stand to lose the most in the case of an unexpected death. When a study from Genworth took a look at life insurance gaps among Americans, it identified four major consumer groups that may be in need of additional – or any – life insurance planning: unmarried parents, women, large families and those with certain common health conditions.
