Cloning "A List" Clients to Increase Sales


Published on

“While America is experiencing its greatest transfer of wealth, the senior level ‘baby boomer’ financial advisors are retiring out of the market,” explained Associate Dean William Byrnes. “The next five years presents substantial opportunities for this generation of financial advisors who exercise best networking and face-to-face practices.”

“Many young professionals unproductively spin their wheels when it comes to growing their client base,” interjected co-author Robert Bloink. “The online Thomas Jefferson graduate program is competitive because most faculty members like myself brings decades of business experience into the classroom and keep our students eye on the ball – developing their client books.

“The National Underwriter Sales Essentials Series combines all of the most practical, proven sales techniques advisors need to convert prospects into customers, win new business, and to grow sales,” added Rick Kravitz Managing Director of the National Underwriter Professional Publishing Division. “The Life & Health Sales Essentials focuses on the selling skills and techniques essential to achieving success—prospecting for new business and the demands of running an agency.”

William Byrnes continued, “I invite you to learn 'How to Clone Your Client's, What`s Your 'Point of Difference?', The ‘Ben Franklin Method’ For Winning People Over, How to Cultivate a Network of Endless Referrals, and Marketing to the Millennials. In our books, we focus on client cloning, including: asking intriguing questions, C2C qualified introductions, and client crowd sourcing.”
