why sell insurance to your own friends how do I approach a friend to talk about financial planning firstly let us discuss the first learning point why advisers are reluctant to sell insurance to their friends does it sound familiar when you first started selling insurance your manager probably asked you to write down a list of hundred friends you have you are then required to call each and every one of them telling them that you’re doing financial planning and asking them to meet you for a survey appointment your mentor will then accompany you to these meetings and try to close your friends for you sooner or later you realize that word spreads and all your other friends start to avoid you you don’t want to spoil your relationship with them and rather than approach warm leads you start to sell insurance to cold leads through cold calling even when you catch up with your friends you are always concerned whether you should tell them that you’re an advisor and if you did would you scare them away if you have the above feelings don’t worry me too in fact I can assure you almost every single advisor in our industry has to experience the above situation after eighteen years of selling insurance I’ve found out that there are two reasons why advisors are hesitant to sell insurance to their friends number one you don’t want to spoil your friendship yes I understand it’s something difficult to bring up the topic of insurance to your close friends because you are afraid that they will think you’re just after the commissions
number two you’re not confident of your knowledge and products you see it is difficult to sell something you’re not good at especially to your own friends okay so you are probably wondering Sanjay I am hesitant can you teach me what’s the best way to sell insurance to friends without spoiling my friendship now before we touch on that let us discuss our second learning point for today why I are friends not buying from you for a friend to buy insurance from you there are two things that must happen number one you must have the professional ability this includes you giving the right advice and knowing your product if you do not have the professional ability do check out some of the books I’ve written to help you out with that remember nobody will buy insurance from an advisor that doesn’t know what he or she is doing so when you see your best friend buying insurance from another advisor chances is either because you didn’t approach your friend or your friend don’t trust your professional ability number two you must develop trust with your friends Trust is developed via your prospect interaction with you and with what you have heard about you or read about you people buy from people they like and trust even if you give the best advice nobody will purchase anything from you if you don’t have any trust in you so remember if your friends are not buying from you today chances are you either didn’t develop sufficient professional ability or you didn’t develop enough trust work on this too and I assure you you will be more confident as you approach your friends for insurance the third learning point why sell insurance to your friends many advisors struggling with approaching their friends and I can 100% I’ll show you this is a mindset issue and if you’re one of them I want you to listen carefully to three reasons why you should sell insurance to your friends reason number one everyone needs insurance insurance is a necessity and an essential form of risk transfer if you do not sell insurance to your own friends
today another advisor will someday down the road reason number two the best gift you can give your friends today is a peace of mind don’t think your friend is doing your favor by buying insurance from you stop thinking that way you are actually doing them a huge favor by giving them a lifetime peace of mind reason number three insurance helps your friendship last forever when we offer insurance to
