Liberty National Life CLASSROOM TRAINING DAY TWO Day Two Objectives Three Components of Success Rapport Building Complete Rapport Building Video Training Role Play Rapport Building Situational Presentation Basic Products Knowledge Three Components of Success Rapport Transitions and Tie Downs Needs Based Closing The Balance Between the Human Element and Technology Clients buy products based on advertising messages, word of mouth, reputation, etc. Clients buy LNL products because they like and trust the Agent. The Laptop Sales Presentation is key to show professionalism and uncover the client’s needs. But that’s only part of the sales process. The other key is human interaction, which is represented in the rapport and close. When you break down the sales process, the amount of time spent on each step is: Rapport – 40%; Need – 30%; Presentation 20%; Close 10% Therefore, the balance between the technology and the human element must be 50-50. RAPPORT=40% NEED=30% PRESENTATION LAPTOP =20% AGENT CLOSE =10% Balance between Human Element & Technology is 50/50 The Art of Establishing Rapport Consumers today are more professional and better educated because they are bombarded with sales pitches over the radio and TV. A professional agent can break through all of this resistance by playing up to each customer as if that person is the first and the last client he/she will ever sell to. Make that customer want to do business with you. People buy from Agents they Trust Customers may feel threatened by an Agent coming into their home. Therefore, everything an Agent will do or say in the home will either produce tension or trust. Don’t start closing from the moment you walk in the home. This will build walls and not trust. Go slow, create trust, and then move into your presentation. People buy from Agents they Respect Respect the customer’s time. Don’t spend more time than you need to make a sale presentation. Respect the customer’s territory. You are a guest, so ask for permission to move around the room or come closer to show a brochure. Respect your customer’s intelligence by being up front. Rapport Building: The Warm Up When you walk into a house, find a place where you can sit comfortably and face the customers. Put your hands on the table, relax, and establish rapport. People buy from you because they like you and they trust you. They buy you first, then the Company, and the products after. Find something in common with your customers and go from there. Avoid politics and religion. This should not last more than 15 minutes.
