You want to bring more people to your National Agents Alliance team, but maybe you’re not sure what qualities you should look for in a new recruit. We can help you identify what qualities are most important for new agents to possess when they’re joining your team. If you find people with the following characteristics, you better hire them because they’ll make great agents!
Willing to Learn
You want your new recruit to be willing to learn everything there is to know about the business and to be excited about selling insurance and helping others. Many people who are new to the business have this quality because they’re excited try something new where they know they can earn a good living and be happy. Other people who may be willing to learn are people who have worked for an agency that they weren’t happy with. Agents who couldn’t make the income they dreamed of at other agencies are happy to learn about our lead system and team of supportive agents who will help them achieve the success they’ve dreamed of.
Knows What They Want
You want a person who knows where they want to be in five years, or who has clear expectations about what they want to gain by being a part of your team. People who have clear goals for their future are likely to work hard and do whatever they need to do to achieve those goals. These are exactly the type of people who can find great success in this business.
Andy always says that a person’s mindset determines the outcome. If a person comes to the Alliance believing that they aren’t going to do well selling insurance, then they won’t do well. If a person comes in to your business thinking that they can make $250,000 in their first year, then they can because their attitude and mindset is positive.
Now that you know what you’re looking for, get out there and start looking for recruits! If you would like to see our advice on how to keep your new agents happy and working hard, see our blog post “Keys to Recruiting and Keeping Your Recruits with National Agents Alliance.”
