A Step-by-Step Guide to Maximizing LinkedIn to Build Your Sales and Your Brand
LinkedIn, the online business networking tool, has over 300 million users.
Could some of them be your next clients and referrals?
The answer is a resounding YES – if you know the right ways to maximize it.
Now, more than ever before in the insurance world, LinkedIn is the easiest to use and maintain of all of the various sites available for connecting people in the business community. The networking, referral, and quite frankly, moneymaking opportunities are vast for insurance agents, if you know how to use LinkedIn correctly.
With online searching being the default way of getting information by just about everyone, you want to make sure you are at the top when people are looking for insurance providers or just “checking you out” to see how you match up to other services. With the right way of leveraging LinkedIn, you can make sure you are always at the top and getting, and keeping, clients for your insurance business.
But I’m getting ahead of myself.
You see, many people think LinkedIn is simply a huge online database of resumes. Nothing could be further from the truth.
LinkedIn is really about relationships… the backbone of the insurance industry. Yes, many people shop solely by price but still, people want to work with a person, someone they can trust with their money and their future.
LinkedIn lets people find out a little more about who you are and what you provide in seconds. It can be your “business card” into beginning a long lasting relationship with them. (That’s why, unlike Google, LinkedIn is perceived as a “higher caliber” and often, a much more trustworthy search.)
In other words, LinkedIn is about branding and identifying you as an agent (or agency) and all you can provide to a client. LinkedIn can single you out as being the best provider of the insurance services your prospect is looking for – almost invisibly blowing your competition out of the water.
That’s why I’ve created this practical online course, An Insurance Agent’s Guide to Getting Started with LinkedIn: A Step-by-Step Guide to Maximizing LinkedIn to Build Your Sales and Your Brand. It’s designed to help you develop a successful LinkedIn presence in the least amount of time possible while avoiding the common mistakes others are making.
I’ve spent my career helping agents harness technology to provide better sales and service to their clients.
I’ve specifically designed this course to guide you step-by-step through the process of setting up and using LinkedIn so again, you can leverage every interaction to showcase who you are professionally and what you provide to your clients.
Here’s a little of what’s included:
Learn the difference between a personal profile and an agency page and how they relate and complement each other.
LinkedIn doesn’t exactly relate to your “real world” business… or does it? The answer may surprise you.
Learn the five questions to ask that are imperative to answer before you “go live” with your LinkedIn presence.
LinkedIn is hard to start over if you mess up initially… Learn the exact steps to take to avoid this dangerous pitfall and ways to “patch things up” if you need to.
Find out how to get in on the hottest growing feature in LinkedIn – specific recommendations of service providers – an insurance agent’s sweet spot.
LinkedIn “Recommendations” are the online equivalent of a personal referral in the LinkedIn world. Learn how to set these up in the right order for maximum reward.
