5 Quick Tips for Agents on Selling Bigger Life Insurance Policies

When it comes to insurance policies, bigger doesn’t always mean better. As life insurance professionals, it’s essential to guide our clients through the decision-making process with transparency and respect. Rather than simply suggesting larger policies, we should take the time to explain the rationale behind such recommendations. In this article, we’ll explore five key strategies to help you effectively present and advocate for bigger insurance policies while empowering your clients to make informed choices. By understanding their needs, exercising patience, and being proactive in sharing valuable information, you can build trust and create meaningful connections that lead to more satisfied clients and a successful insurance selling process.

  1. Instead of just suggesting a bigger policy, explain the reasons behind it to clients. Provide information that helps them make an informed decision, such as lower premiums for younger and healthier individuals, family growth, and depending on the clients needs, the benefits of whole life policies, term or mortgage protection policies, or indexed universal life (IUL) policies.

  2. Respect the insurance selling process, which may take longer for larger policies. Outline the steps involved, including initial contact, sharing quotes for different policy types, answering questions, and following up. Present quotes for various coverage levels and premiums to show the value.

  3. Understand the client’s budget to provide appropriate quotes. While “bigger” means different things to different people, gather information on their budget to offer suitable options. Showing the benefits of slightly expanding their budget can be helpful.

  4. Exercise patience as bigger decisions take more time. Guide clients, address their concerns, and allow them to think through the decision. Some may decide quickly, while others may take weeks or longer. Provide support and information throughout the process.

  5. Be proactive and share the availability of bigger insurance policies with clients. Express why they should consider larger policies and don’t fear rejection. By approaching the topic respectfully, you minimize risk, and the worst outcome is the client declining the idea of a bigger policy.

As life insurance agents, it’s our responsibility to act as trusted advisors for our clients. By following these strategies and embracing a client-centric approach, we can guide them through the process of considering bigger insurance policies with confidence. Explaining the rationale behind these recommendations, respecting their individual needs and budget, and exercising patience will lead to more informed decisions and satisfied clients. Remember, fostering open communication and providing valuable insights create lasting relationships, ensuring both their financial security and your professional success in the insurance industry.
