Below are some of the perks that make this the best insurance sales job in St. Louis.
Pre-Set Appointments – No More Calling Friends and Family
You are provided 15-20 preset insurance appointments per week in MO, IL and KS.
We are highly sensitive to lead quality and use the best direct mail programs (which are the highest quality insurance lead aside from referrals) to keep you constantly in front of interested prospects. This is unlike any healthcare sales jobs St. Louis has to offer and one of the best insurance selling strategies.
Technology Focused: Company Provided Ipad Pro and Integrated CRM
You are armed with an iPad Pro which is tied into the proprietary agency management systems giving you real-time information about your book of business.
We like to think it’s the best CRM for insurance agents, and the best part is that it’s exclusive. We love the idea that we’re not cutting down trees anymore! And, agents love the simplicity of our dedication to A-rated carriers that offer intuitive electronic applications.
Administrative Back Office Support, Dedicated Case Management and Hands on Training
Full-time folks at the St. Louis headquarters help you save time, deal with questions/issues, talk to your clients if necessary and generally make your life easier. If we get serious about each other we will introduce you to our management team and a few of the top advisors.
Training platform is top notch and teaches you how to be successful selling insurance.
There is constant sharing of life insurance selling ideas as well as more ways to grow your medicare book of business. It’s a team environment dedicated to each other’s success.
Best Life Insurance Companies and Health Contracts
Our growth has positioned us well with many of the industry’s best life insurance companies to work for.
In the end, only the successful companies get the good contracts. Period.
If you’re talking with other firms be sure to press them on details because, we hate to say it, there is a lot of smoke going on with contracts these days.
Getting contracted with the right carriers and the wrong agency is a recipe for disaster, do your homework.
Day Time Pre-Set Insurance Appointments
One of the best reasons to work the senior insurance market is the flexibility it provides. Most advisors work from home primarily because their days are full with appointments. But, join us any time in the office… we have plenty of space.
We are unapologetically passionate about what we do.
If you’re familiar with the Medicare and Final Expense sales world, you know there is high annual turnover because most agencies encourage their agents to make new sales rather than to retain clients (the bridge is burning behind them all the time).
We believe our advisors are better served by retaining clients (and capturing the ongoing renewal income) and so is our company. Win-win.
Insurance Agent Salary
In 2017, one-third of the advisors averaged $117,000 in commission income, bonuses and renewals. And, these folks worked, on average, about four days a week.
This is one of the few six figures sales jobs St. Louis offers that doesn’t require the extensive travel you might find in other fields.
If you’re curious how many sales it takes to make six figures in the insurance business, play around with the Redbird insurance salary estimator tool before your interview.
What is it about the top producers that makes them successful?
- Customer Focused: Embrace the concept of service along with sales.
- Independent minded: Have an edginess that keeps them motivated.
- Self-starter: We never have to push them.
- Demand control: Ecstatic using the Ipad sales system. It was one more way for them to maintain a firm grip on their world.
- Coachable and Eager to Learn: Realize change happens fast and aren’t afraid.
- Technically Astute: Embrace technology to become more efficient.
- Career Minded: Want to build something special for themselves.
- Professional: Treats their business like a career and not just a job.
To be brutally honest, few people we speak with are right for this opportunity… not because they can’t do it, but more because they don’t want to put in the time to become an expert. You have to be committed to learning something new every day.
The technology, culture and passion for helping people is why these advisors consider this one of the best sales jobs. St. Louis is home base, so if you’re local, request an interview and learn more about this competitive opportunity. Combing through the sales jobs St. louis has to offer can be extremely frustrating, so we hope you’ll request an interview and see for yourself why we believe so strongly in this opportunity.
