Looking for the truth about National Agents Alliance? If you're considering the life insurance sales arena, you should know that 9 out of 10 people fail. Knowing that stat, National Agents Alliance sure did accept a challenge with the industry they chose to be a part of.
The problem with National Agents Alliance is they make the career opportunity sound so easy upfront like anybody can do it.
Anybody can't do the life insurance business because it requires a very special attitude. 90% of your meeting is spent getting to know the client and 10% is spent reviewing a 1 page benefits document. It's your RELATIONSHIPS that sell life insurance not the product.
The sales presentation is soo simple but most people who join National Agents Alliance are from a different industry all together so...
The thought of building a relationship with 90% of their time and selling for the other 10% is unfathomable. "Salesy type people" don't make it because the clients of today can smell the hard sell. It's the relationship builders - the plain ol nice guy or gal that make it. (They don't even have to know much about insurance - just be genuinely nice and look up the answers as questions come up.)
In an industry where 9 out of 10 fail, and there's a big expectation upfront of how easy it is and that anybody can do it, the unfortunate result is a few angry people complaining. (approx. 9 out of 10) I understand that.
The other problem is that people think "national agents alliance leads" is the complete business.
And that's like investing in a McDonalds restaurant and only buying the food but not the soda. The business would be incomplete and bound to fail...
You see, the leads at National Agents Alliance are supposed to be a way for you to jump start your life insurance career, but any good life insurance salesman knows that you must get referrals to stay in business. If you're not getting referrals in EVERY home, honestly you're in the wrong business. But there's a much bigger problem if you're not getting referrals. YOU have to ask YOURSELF - WHY WOULD SOMEONE NOT REFER THEIR FRIEND TO ME? That's YOUR problem, not the problem of National Agents Alliance. Make sense?
At NAA Power Players, we teach our agents how to get at least 10 referrals in every home.
When we do our business development program we get 5-10 times that many. You just have to know how to ask. We teach this in our I Power Start Training with NAA Power Players.
Sure National Agents Alliance might make a penny or two on leads, but don't you think there's an expense to all that? You try sending a million letters a week and see what it costs you. They make a lot more money when their agents sell insurance and and so do you.
But remember, it's the relationships that sell insurance! So that's why National Agents Alliance really focuses and recommends the personal development books and CDS. (which you can but on Amazon for $1.50) They are developing leaders who can attract people and build relationships. Is any of this making sense yet?
The last thing you need to consider when making your decision about National Agents Alliance is whether you want to drive around selling life insurance for the rest of your life or whether you want to be a coach and help others succeed.
You see, running out of people to talk to is the #1 reason most people fail in the life insurance business...
National Agents Alliance solves this problem by providing leads all over the country...
So you can work by yourself as an agent, or you could try to hire agents beneath you but YOU better have leads for them or they will fail... Or you can partner with a lead company like National Agents Alliance who only sells leads to their agents and not everyone in the country. Then you can use those leads in almost all 50 states to provide to agents on your team. It's a great system really.
How are you supposed to have time to run a lead company AND sell insurance in the field AND coach your agents. You can't do it all alone and that's why National Agents Alliance is a great partnership.
Anybody who complains and points fingers at the 55% starting is a SHORT TERM thinker. They're not seeing the big picture. The 55% is how YOU get paid when you advance to 65,75 and 85. Why should new people learn how to make six figure income for FREE? All you have to do to advance a level is $5,000 production two months in a row so you're not at 55% contract long enough to even complain...
(It's called "pay your dues to be part of a program that give you lead access all over the country so you can build a team.)
If you don't have leads, then you don't have any people either. SO you can sit at 80 or 90% at another company and be without the ability to build a team and earn passive income because you have no 1. Leads, 2. Education and 3. Recognition and 4.0rganized motivation.
Psssst, by the way. you don't have to spend your money on all the "stuff" at National Agents Alliance. That depends on what you need to be successful.
SO I hope this Review on NAA Insurance was useful in your partnership search and I look forward to speaking with you in the near term. Please feel free to visit our National Agents Alliance Website for more info.
