A Marketing Tip That Will Save You Time and Money

Annuity Marketing Tip Will Save You Time and Money

A2Z Marketing Tip Will Save You Time and Money

How many times have you gone on an appointment only to realize that you have left a needed form back at the office. Or, you suddenly discover that what you thought was a cash sale becomes a transfer request? Or, that you suddenly decide to use a different company to solve the client’s need? How many needless trip do you make back to the office to get the necessary forms only to delay the sale you were counting on or perhap even worse, delaying the qualification of benefits such as Medicaid simply because of delays in getting the proper paperwork submitted.

To get around this problem, A2Z Annuity Marketing suggests that you carry a USB jump (flash) drive with you. Simply store applications, transfer paperwork, even service forms, from the various companies with whom you do business. You may even wish to carry consumer presentations, product brochures, or other client materials as well. For those of you who do Medicaid or VA Aid and Attendance planning, necessary forms, presentations, manuals, etc. can all be stored and available to share with your clients. A one gigabyte drive would be more than enough to store all the documents, presentations, and brochures you will ever be likely to need.

Now, if you forget a form or if the sales presentation changes gears, you can simply ask you client if they have a computer and printer that you could use to print the necessary forms or to show the marketing strategy presentation you are now suggesting. Of course, if the client does not have a computer and you are in need of forms, a local Kinko’s, public librabry, hotel, or other public building will have computers and printers that you can use.

BIG TIP OF THE MONTH

If you are contracted with A2Z Annuity Marketing and attend one of our Medicaid or VA Aid and Attendance trainings either via webinars or at our home offices, we will provide you with a USB drive pre-loaded with cleint presentations, forms, and even your state’s Medicaid Eligibility Manual as part of your training. You may see what trainings are scheduled by checking the activity calendar on the home page of our website. (forms for specific companies can be added to the drive)

We hope this tip will save you both time and money. It has proven to be a valuable addition to my travels as there have been many times I have conducted trainings, seminars, etc. where a form, brochure, or presentation is needed and is readily available because I keep the information on a USB drive attached to my keychain.

If you have been to a previous training and haven’t requested a FREE jump drive, simple request one by clicking here.

  • The One Question That Will Increase Your Income By Over $100,000 Per Year

    I bet that if you knew you could ask one question of each of your prospects that would generate over $100,000 of ADDITIONAL REVENUE, you would ask it, right?  And, I’ll bet that you often overlook this one easy sale that every life insurance agent in the country should know about, but often forget to mention.

    The miracle question:  "Do you want your children to have to pay for your funeral?"

    Why is this question so powerful?  Because it opens up a discussion about final expenses and allows you to immediately explain a final expense or pre-paid funeral trust contract. 

    The answer to the question is invaribly, ‘no’.  So, a logical follow-up question is, ‘So what have you done about it?"  This will evoke answers about pre-paid cemetery plots or headstones, pre-arranged and paid funeral directives, reasons for proscrastination, etc.  Whatever the direction the discussion takes, you can always bring it back to the probability that your client may have as little as $2000 left in their estate if they don’t properly plan to protect their money from the nursing home spend down.

    By pointing out that pre-paid funeral trusts are exempt as assets under both VA Aid and Attendance and Medicaid guidelines, you can steer your client to set aside an amount to pay for their funeral arrangements.  These contracts are generally non-underwritten deposits into a specific type of policy that is then held in trust by the insurance company to be used for the final expenses of your client.  States typically cap the amount around $10,000 that can be claimed as exempt from consideration as an asset the would affect Medicaid eligibility, however some states have different amounts.  It is best to check with us if you are not familiar with your state’s limit.

    Another consideration is that some states will allow more than just the Medicaid application to acquire funeral trusts with the applicant’s funds.  Many states will allow funds to be spent on the applicant’s spouse, children and even son- and daughter-in-laws.  Again, check with us for pertinent rules in the state(s) in which you conduct business.

    All of these funeral trust lead up to some great commissions that can increase your annual income by over $100,000 with only one or two pages of application paperwork per policy.  Call us today at 877-752-0055 to learn more about pre-paid funeral trusts or just simply start asking the question, ‘Do you want your children to have to pay for your funeral?"
