1.3.2. Leading questions

1.3.2.1. Want to know more?

1.3.2.1.1. Leading questions either include the answer, point the listener in the right direction or include some form or carrot or stick to send them to the 'right' answer. Leading questions can often help you find a common ground with your customer quicker. A leading question let’s you frame what you’d like to say and often uses assumptive techniques. For example, if your customer said they really liked their claims experience you could ask something like “You mentioned you had a great claim with us, surely you’d like to have your home insured with us as well as your car?”. This will reinforce the positive feedback the customer already gave and frame their response. Examples of leading questions: "How much will prices go up next year?" "What do you think about John Smith? Many people are opposed to him, by the way." "You'll come to dinner tonight, won't you?"

1.3.3. Closed questions

1.3.3.1. Want to know more?

3.3.2. 6 steps for handling sales objections

3.3.2.1. Want to know more?

3.3.2.1.1. Listen - the quickest way to fail to deal with an objection is to not listen. Listen all the way through as the customer explains the objection, demonstrate active listening skills. Don't interupt!

3.3.2.1.2. Empathise - Show the customer you understand and are not fazed by the objection

3.3.2.1.3. Test - Ask questions such as "why do you feel that way" or "I can see your concern, tell me more?"

3.3.2.1.4. Diagnose -Examine the answers detmine which reason it is liable to be for the objection

3.3.2.1.5. Remedy - Depending on the diagnosis you can then apply the appropriate remedy

3.3.2.1.6. Test again

3.3.3. Common scenarios

3.3.3.1. Renewal Objections - Never see a renewal objection as just another price complaint. See it as "Second Chance call". This customer didn't have to call, they could have just gone somewhere else. Instead they have given us the chance to do better.

3.3.3.1.1. Start by acknowledging their concerns and offering to see if there is something we can do. Have a look through their policy, checking the details and explaining features along the way, hopefully during this discovery session you will find something that may alter the price.

3.3.3.1.2. If not, confirm that the information is true and correct and they are being charged an appropriate premium.

3.3.3.1.3. Ask if they have gotten a comparison quote? Compare the features of each policy, re linking their personal benefits for each feature

3.3.3.1.4. Discuss options which could make a difference to price i.e.. Excess, Sum insured etc.

3.3.3.1.5. Check history, understand the customers value, how many policies, time of cover etc and acknowledge the customers loyalty

3.3.3.1.6. In most cases the above steps will generally help with the objection. In some extreme cases a retention discount may need to be used depending on the customers history
