P&C Agent? You Will Love This Book!
In How Any Agent Can Escape the Price Battlefield, Ben Page shares his proven step-by-step method for winning more quality clients BEFORE any talk of price, coverage, service, or value pitch. This isn’t theory, it’s the result of a 20-year quest to sell more insurance inside of his agencies.
It also is NOT what you’d expect. It is NOT the tired old (and limited) advice to sell value. It’s unlike anything you’re likely to hear from marketing reps, well-meaning managers, or self-proclaimed gurus who aren’t in the trenches selling. They often encourage agents to do what Page calls “Pitching for Policies” by making value arguments (i.e., look at all of these benefits for the price!). While Page agrees that value arguments are better than just price quotes, they are nothing compared to the secrets he shares in his book.
