Thank you
Bob, Randy, George and Bill,
Thank you for the beautiful bouquet of flowers. I can’t
believe it has been 30 years. I can remember vividly
sitting in Phil Richards office and being offered the job.
Back then I was also interviewing with Proctor and
Gamble. Phil said I could either be selling financial
planning relationships or toilet paper, which would you
prefer?
Hope that gave you a smile, have a great day.

“It’s Not About Working Harder. It’s About Working Smarter”
*MDRT Study
Keep the planes in the air (Marketing Asst Program)
Strategy # I –
Never ASK for Names; GIVE Them
1. Know what organization your client is part of
2. Obtain list of as many names in the organization
(Directory-Lobby, INTERNET, Company
Directories. SOCIAL MEDIA MAKES EASY
3. Place list of 20 or so names before client.
4. “I will be calling these people; which do you know
(K) or know well (KW). Please mark”.
5. “If any of them ask me, do you mind if I tell them
I work for you?”
Strategy # II – Working Smarter, Not Harder
• Time is the problem for the sole practitioner
Delegation, Mentoring and Scale are the solutions
• Your uniqueness is thru the “Miracle of Life Insurance”
THE 2% Rule - Hard to Easy vs Easy to Hard
• Vision, Mission Goals, and Execution using strategies,
systems, sub-systems tactics, procedures, and
checklists
Strategy # III - SCRIPT Everything
Script Everything-Purpose
20 Second Elevator Speech
Telephone Script fatal disjunctive
“Give Names” Talk
Scripts for Admin/Market asst
Nominator talk(if you use one)
Script QUESTIONS for interview
Strategy IV – Vertical Referred Leads & More
•
THE HONEYBEE
• State Farm Letters (Clients and Orphans)
• Before we hang up…
• Vertical Referred Leads Magic Word (Respect)
• Don’t ask for Referrals, Give Them
• I’m a life planner who specializes in finance
• Do you have enough confidence in your agent to allow
me to give you a FREE second opinion.
• Cold Calls, 20,000 rejections needed to succeed
Strategy # V – State Farm Letters –
Client Life Benefits Letter
As a service to our clients, we are contacting you to ensure you
have adequate life insurance coverage. Our records show that
you have $1,000,000 of life protection in force. This will provide
$6600 per month to your family in the event of your untimely
death. Is $6600 per month enough for your family to live on?
If you have more coverage than our records indicate, please let
us know so we can update our records.
If this amount is correct but you feel it may be insufficient to
cover your risks, please call us and we will set up a time to
review your needs and develop a solution.
I can be reached at «AdvisorPhoneBus».
Best regards,
DAVID GREY, Advisor
Strategy # VI – Working Smarter, Not Harder
Term Insurance
• Sell Term (The Aaron story)
–Lock in the client / convert the policy
in the future.
• Use conversion credits as a reason to
review current coverage . YRT is best!
• Negative Mortality Curve

one’s dignity when good health ends.

Strategy # IX – Pareto Rules
Transformation & Integration to a Financial Planning
Platform

gathering and expenses

killing the sale
4. Your best prospect is a client
5. Sell advice and not product, Relationships not commodities
6. 20% of fee quotes must be turned down. 1-1; 2-4; 3-9
7. Service 1st; Service last; Service always.(10 yrs. Ago vs.now)
8. Affluent people require 2 things; Trust and Expertise
Strategy # VI – Working Smarter, Not Harder
Strategic Questions
1. If I ran a competing firm, how would I beat
me/us? What would Jack Welsh do?
2. If you cannot say what you do in 25 seconds or
less, don’t fix your script, fix your practice!
1. What is keeping you from getting your practice
to the next level? Be Specific, write it down.
Are you doing things right, or the right things?
