Well, I just got assigned with them recently and it has taken forever just to get software. I am not a captive agent. They have limited product but their annuities seem pretty atractive. As you should know, advancement, commissioions etc. are all up to you. I have not been made aware of any good lead programs they have.
Are they supplying you with a member list to work or are you on your own? That, I think is your main concern. If you are on your own, how are you going to get your prospects. I have only been in the Insurance business for a little over three years now but I have learned this. You need leads. You need to make phone calls, you need to see people. It's that simple. It all starts with leads though. Not enough leads, not enough income.
I obviously haven't begun selling insurance yet, but I have been in sales and completely understand the benefit of having leads provided, especially when starting out.
As far as a list of members being provided, I'm not sure. Leads however will be provided and they are free. I will find out more tomorrow morning in the interview.
Is there anything else anyone suggest I look for or ask them?
Thank for your help.
Ryan (P.S. I understand the Gleaner name, I hadn't heard of them before either, so I will go in cautiously. Thanks for the heads up!)
