  3. 3. Relational SalesPro, LLC <ul><li>Developer of MarTech MAPS Systems; SALESPRO’s predecessor </li></ul><ul><li>Equipped 100’s of producers gain more appointments </li></ul><ul><li>Developed web-based application , retired PC based software </li></ul><ul><li>18 years in insurance agency sales and management </li></ul><ul><li>6 years in sales consulting for an independent carrier </li></ul><ul><li>14 years in insurance nurture marketing consulting </li></ul><ul><li>Highly skilled developers and support staff </li></ul>What the mind of man can conceive and believe, the mind of man can achieve. - Napoleon Hill © 2010 Relational SalesPro, LLC
  4. 4. The Days of Chasing Every Lead Are Gone <ul><li>Causes you to work harder for less. </li></ul><ul><li>Calling a list of cold suspects or, pressing business advocates for referrals will never be enough to weather market changes. </li></ul><ul><li>It is impossible; the odds of cultivating a “sufficient number” of “warm prospects” to recover lost revenues are simply against you. </li></ul><ul><li>Longer sales cycle, price focused. </li></ul><ul><li>You must continually prospect for new business and make it their priority. </li></ul>© 2010 Relational SalesPro, LLC
  5. 5. Why Nurture Prospect Relationships? <ul><li> 80% of all sales close after 5-7 contacts </li></ul><ul><li>Yet only 10% of all producers have an automated means to stay in contact with key prospects beyond the 7 th contact. </li></ul><ul><li>With an automated marketing system 10% of all producers close 80% of all sales. </li></ul><ul><li>Without the means to stay in touch, 90% of all producers are frantically scrambling to write their share of only 20% of the sales to be made . </li></ul>“ Unless you're just lucky, and you find that extraordinary salesperson with the ability to find opportunities everywhere and build their book, an agency needs something like this that's a system to keep you focused, directed and moving forward.” – Tom Kansas Client © 2010 Relational SalesPro, LLC
  6. 6. Gaining Confidence <ul><li>It is a proven fact that most people react negatively to high-pressure sales . Regardless of your product or service, people buy for emotional reasons, and they buy from people they like and trust. </li></ul><ul><li>Your prospects must recognize your name and logo and equate it with your expressed desire to do business with them. </li></ul><ul><li>Your prospect must have an opportunity to form an opinion of your honesty and reliability to gain confidence sufficient to rely on you. </li></ul>© 2010 Relational SalesPro, LLC
  7. 7. Building Key Advocates <ul><li>Referrals have a 67% close ratio because trust is transferred from the referring party to you. </li></ul><ul><li>“ WOW” your best clients. Identify your top 20 clients and implement a strategy to exceed their service and relational expectations. Advocates are those who sing your praise and become a valuable source of referrals . </li></ul><ul><li>Ask your centers of influence for referrals The key is to develop “reciprocal” relationships with between 10 to 12 &quot;core&quot; influencers by taking them to lunch regularly, and send referrals their way. </li></ul>© 2010 Relational SalesPro, LLC
  8. 8. Taking a Road Less Traveled <ul><li>80% of sales are made after the 7th contact. </li></ul><ul><li>Without a centralized-prospecting method designed to communicate with prospect, clients and centers of influence through all the stages of relationship, building a winning pipeline could be impossible. </li></ul><ul><li>Cultivating a warm pipeline of prospects is neither, a quick, or an easy task. </li></ul><ul><li>When developing a pipeline from scratch, expect to see results between 6 th and 8 th month. Years 2 – 5 generate increased results. </li></ul>© 2010 Relational SalesPro, LLC Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common that unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent . -Calvin Coolidge
  9. 9. Income Producing Tasks vs. Non-Income Producing Tasks <ul><li>The decision is yours - - - - </li></ul><ul><li>Do you know the average salesperson spends only 20% of their available time performing income-producing tasks. </li></ul><ul><li>31% - administration </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>18% - travel time </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>17% - non-productive downtime </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>14% - problem solving </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>10% - active selling </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>10% - prospecting </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Resource: Annual sales force effectiveness study, 2006 </li></ul></ul>© 2010 Relational SalesPro, LLC For the resolute and determined, there is time and opportunity. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
