The intro is the gateway that opens the door to pitching consumers (if you can pitch, you can sell!). There are a few important tips you’ll want to keep in mind while intro’ing your buyer.
Sound like you’ve had a previous conversation with your consumer. Pretend that you’ve already talked with them and you’re calling them back to get them quotes for coverage.
Don’t ask for your consumer – just assume that the person who picks up the phone IS the contact you should be speaking with.
Be human; don’t sound like a robot or don’t sound like you are reading from a script.
Practice this intro out loud – read it to yourself and then say it like you’ve already talked with the person on the other end of the line.
