National Agents Alliance Can Protect People with Illnesses

Agents know that it can be difficult to find affordable coverage for customers who have had illnesses like cancer, but with National Agents Alliance it doesn’t have to be impossible. Kemper Senior Solutions offers a policy that almost anyone can qualify for; it’s called Kemper Guaranteed Issue Whole Life.

KemperWith Kemper Guaranteed Issue, the customer won’t have to answer ANY health questions at all and smokers and non-smokers pay the same rates! This makes it a great policy for people who have illnesses or lifestyles that exclude them from other coverage options. The benefit amounts range between $5,000 and $25,000. The customer does have to be between the ages of 40 and 80. Annual and monthly premium modes are available and the premiums will never increase.

If you have a customer who doesn’t need more than $25,000 worth of coverage and may not be able to qualify for other life insurance options due to their health or lifestyle, Kemper Guaranteed Issue Whole Life would be a perfect option for them!

To get contracted with Kemper or to get more information on Guaranteed Issue Whole Life visit Click on Kemper from the carrier menu on the left side of the page. Please note that Kemper is currently only available in 35 states. Kemper is pending approval in MD and MT and is NOT available in AK, CA, CT, DC, DE, HI, MA, MN, ND, NH, NY, RI, and VT.

Get Your Ship Together for Fall Forward

The Burlington Fall Forward event is coming up at the end of the week, and we want to make sure that you’re prepared! You don’t have to do a lot to get ready, but we do have a few tips for you.

  1. Set some goals. It’s okay to attend the event to see what you can learn, but you’ll get even more out of it if you set a goal for yourself. Do you need more training on annuities? Do you have questions to ask the Lead Performance Team or Director of KIT Marketing? Who do you want to associate with? Make it a goal to get your questions answered or learn as much as possible on a certain topic. Find out who might be attending and make it a goal to associate with some of them. If you know what you want to get from the event, you’re one step closer to achieving it!
  2. Get here early! Get directions ahead of time to make sure you know how to get here. Due to limited parking on the main campus, we’re asking that you park at our Maple Avenue office (1206 Maple Avenue) and take our shuttles to NAA headquarters. The shuttles will make continuous trips all day. Get here and park early so you can catch the first shuttle! If you’re a Black Card member of President’s club, you will get a parking pass on Friday for reserved parking on the main NAA campus for the entire weekend.2013 Fall Forward
  3. Get fired up! Events at NAA are not like ordinary corporation events – they’re much more fun! We want you to learn as much as you can, but have fun doing it! Andy always says he doesn’t understand why people yell, scream and dance at sporting events, but barely cheer for their own success. We want you to be excited about having fun, making money, and making a difference. Your enthusiasm is appreciated, so get excited about the opportunity to meet Andy Albright, the National Agents Alliance staff, and other agents!

This all sounds wonderful, but you can’t take our advice if you haven’t purchased a ticket yet! Visit to purchase your ticket now. If you’re traveling a good distance to be here this weekend, check out our post on how to make the most of your travel time!

Do You Know What Women Want With Life Insurance?

In today’s day and age, it is common for women to hold leadership roles. However, it is becoming even more common for women to be the ultimate decision maker and chief financial officer of her household. What does this mean for you? This means that it is time to get more women protected with life insurance. How do you do that? Simple. Below are key points to know how to sell to your female population:5 Easy Sales Tips

  1. There are many characteristics that prove women should be the ultimate decision maker—Know them! These characteristics will help you to know how a woman thinks and acts. Women tend to think more long-term and holistically than men. Women are caregivers; they tend to care more about what will happen in the future. They are emotional and more inquisitive. Women tend to be more methodical and thorough. Lastly, they are inclined to want to develop a relationship of trust.
  2. Take a softer approach. Be patient when it comes to women because they do not like to feel pressured into making a decision, especially important life decisions. It is important to not be too pushy. Doing so will only result in you losing a customer. In the long run, it could very well pay off in referrals. Women are excellent at talking about great experiences when it comes to big decisions and purchases. Patience is a virtue, and one that many lack, but it is crucial when it comes to selling to women.
  3. Focus on the big picture—that’s all women really want! Women are concerned about the value of a product. What’s in it for them and their family in the long run? Don’t be analytical; just put your pitches and recommendations into the big picture and save the little details for later.
  4. The three things that women want most from insurance are certainty, safety, and protection. Help them understand how life insurance can provide certainty, safety, and protection for their family’s future, and they’ll be more willing to make the purchase.

Why is it important to provide coverage for the female population? Well, aside from the fact that they are the key financial decision makers now, if you only develop a relationship with the man and lack a relationship with the wife, you stand a high risk of losing a customer if the man dies. Don’t let that happen! Use these key points to improve your relationship with potential female clients and watch your sales increase.
