The Apple Watch for all customers
The best kind of salesman doesn?t need to extravagant Apple accessories to impress a client. Besides, we all know that when your employees and fellow insurance agents are distracted by their cell phones, it is usually not to check on your company?s stocks or business emails. Personal texts, games, and app notifications will only increase the distraction levels in your office if they?re unavoidable on your wrist. The time it takes to switch activities and re-focus adds up each day, which doesn?t streamline your business, but actually creates an inefficient environment. The University of California, Irvine claims that it takes 23 minutes to recover from a loss of focus on a specific task! Don?t feel left behind with your life insurance business if you don?t upgrade with the new look of technology. Insurance sales are always best done in-person as conversation is key to client trust and finding the best product for each situation.
