Description

All agents will report to the team Sales Manager. Agents are focused on selling, selling and more selling and on reaching daily, weekly and monthly sales quotas. Calls are routed by lead source, and, with our closely monitored sales system, your manager can identify the types of leads that you're most successful with. Again, this allows you to focus your attention on areas where you can be the most impactful and fruitful.

Through consultative insurance sales, agents work with clients to identify their insurance needs, assisting in the navigation of life insurance carrier direct sites, selling the insurance products that best fit within their economic and health situations. Once the agent has confirmed all policies the client is purchasing, the agent will either complete the application with the client or a customer service representative takes over completion of all applications and payment processing on behalf of the agent.

* Practice sound industry and business ethics
