    Episode 158: Training Your NEW Service Team Member

    Episode 158: Training Your NEW Service Team Member

    If you want to have a world-class business, you have to have a world-class team.  The two ways to ensure this, are through leadership and training.  Today’s topic is focusing on training, specifically client retention. How do you do that? By ensuring your service personnel receives the training that they need to be successful and I am going to cover what the first 4 weeks can look like within your organization.

    Key Takeaways:



    * Just like an athlete, training needs to occur every day.

    * Training is the fifth of 8 essential segments to “growing” somebody up in an insurance agency business

    * The first initial onboarding of a new service member sets the tone for success. Ensure you are prepared for their first day.

    * Set goals for the first week of training and assign mentors

    * Evaluate the member at the end of each week and if they are not meeting expectations ask them what can be done differently to help them achieve their highest possible level

    * The second week is all about gaining confidence in the agency systems.

    * Start accountability at the beginning but ensure that this is all about support for success.

    * Always ensure that the new member knows the reasons why behind the processes. Do not hesitate to reinforce and reiterate.

    * Week four is all about building upon the learnings of the first three weeks.

    * Reinforce the See, Do, Teach philosophy – One day they observe; the second day they put it into practice, and the third day they teach it to somebody else. Repeat until they have it down.



     

    Until next time, get out there and make a difference, be unstoppable, and leave no regrets!

    Episode 157: Nextdoor Ninja with Kim Angeli

    Episode 157: Nextdoor Ninja with Kim Angeli

    With 15+ years of experience as an independent insurance agency entrepreneur, Kim Angeli knows the importance of connection in creating a successful business.   One of the more underutilized methods to do this is Nextdoor, an app for neighborhoods where you can instantly connect with people, businesses, and happenings near your home. Kim walks us through the best ways to use this app to build relationships and success.

    Key Takeaways:



    * During the covid lockdown, people moved away from Facebook to Nextdoor as they were able to readily find information about what they needed locally.

    * Nextdoor has experienced significant growth and has added many features on the business pages that can be used to your advantage

    * You have to manage your reputation, so keep Nextdoor up-to-date with your branding, etc

    * Nextdoor allows two business posts a month, an equivalent of $3500 in free marketing

    * The cumulative effect on Nextdoor to get yourself the visibility you need

    * With greater SEO and AI, the more hearts that you can gather from local residents, the greater visibility you garner

    * National sponsors do not get hearts so local businesses are more prevalent on the pages

    * Have at least five hearts before you go and post your advertising or marketing from next door because it doesn’t look professional.

    * Hearts are the keys to the recipe of success for next door.

    * Interact with and appreciate those who gave you recommendations. Interaction is important in order to build those connections.

    * 68% of people will leave you and never do business with you again because they feel unappreciated

    Key Takeaways:



    * In branding, it is all about strategic decisions and consistent actions that build a standout brand.

    * People are attracted to brands for several reasons, but you must understand why they are attracted to yours.

    * Branding is more than a logo, it is giving people a reason to do business with you.

    * A bold brand is going to do three things; draw in new leads, convert faster, and retain business

    * Take your culture from inside your company and move it outside.

    * Learn how you take that generic blandness and make it impactful and relevant to your target audience.

    * Every person on your team is equally a promoter as they are a protector of your brand.

    * You must be actively engaged in every aspect of the business, from how you answer phones to responding on social media.

    * Ultimately you have to put as much attention to the front as you are to the back end of your customer experience.

    * Build a brand review with your team on a quarterly basis, to keep it fresh in front of you

    Episode 155: Why People Buy from YOU with Bob Burg

    Episode 155: Why People Buy from YOU with Bob Burg

    Over 23+ years, the referral programs developed in our insurance agency business were at the core of generating more than $49 million dollars in sales. In this episode AND at the 2022 Be Unstoppable Bootcamp, you will learn from the man who was a huge inspiration in the development and marketing of our referral programs – Mr. Bob Burg.

    You will not want to miss one second of this podcast and make sure to grab your seat and hotel room for the Be Unstoppable Bootcamp before they are gone. These “Tickets to paradise will NOT last!  Visit http://beunstoppablebootcamp.com now.

     

    Key Takeaways:



    * People refer and do business with people they know, like, and trust

    * People are going to buy for their reasons, not ours and unless we are adept at discovering what those reasons are, we’re going to have a difficult time having the sale take place

    * A mistake we make is when we allow ourselves to believe what we understand is happiness is what someone else would understand is happiness

    * Gain an understanding of the Profit Motive and how profit is not just a financial one.

    * It is your mission to discover other’s profit motive

    * Discover how to establish a mentor/protégé relationship



     

    About our Guest:

    For over 30 years Bob Burg has been successfully showing entrepreneurs, leaders, and sales professionals how to communicate their value and accelerate their referral business.

    Although for years he was best known for his sales classic, Endless Referrals, it’s his business parable, The Go-Giver, coauthored with John David Mann that has created a worldwide movement.

    While part of a four-book series, The Go-Giver itself has sold more than one million copies and been translated into 30 languages. It was rated #10 on Inc. Magazine’s list of The Most Motivational Books Ever Written, and was on HubSpot’s 20 Most Highly Rated Sales Books of All Time.

    Bob is an advocate, supporter and defender of the Free Enterprise system, believing that the amount of money one makes is directly proportional to how many people they serve.

    He is also an unapologetic animal fanatic and served on the Board of Directors of Furry Friends Adoption & Clinic in his town of Jupiter, Florida.
