3) Become a Life Insurance Specialist/Financial Advisor
You’re probably asking, “Why?”
Life Insurance nowadays, is part of our basic needs, but not all people realize this until the need comes up.
Kapag may nagkasakit na ng malala or may namatay na tsaka lang nila maiisip, may insurance ba sya? Sana may kumuha na sya nuon ng insurance habang malakas pa sya kumita ng pera.
Truth be told, only 16% of the Filipinos are insured, most of them are people with middle to upper-income.
Not all people are educated what life insurance is, and this is where you comes in. There’s a huge need, therefore, a huge opportunity.
What you will need:
- Life Insurance training
- Life Insurance License
- KKK (Kapatid, Kapamilya, Kaibigan, Kapit-bahay, Kakilala, atbp.)
All life insurance companies are in need of Life Insurance Agent, they just have a different title for the job and are often called a Financial Advisor. Your KKKs are your target market, and don’t forget to always ask for referrals to widen your market – creating more prospect clients.
KKK stands for Kaibigan, Kapamilya, Kapuso, Kamag-anak, Kakilala atbp.
I started my life insurance agent career at Fortune Life Insurance Company, a Filipino-Chinese owned life insurance, that is very well-known to public teachers of DepEd.
Aside from my KKKs, their target market: DepEd, made it easy for me to get even more clients, and their professional team helped me all through the way until I was able to close my very first client.
You can start this as a part-time during your spare time. Convenient right? You can do your full-time job while spending your spare time meeting clients.
If you want to do this as your side income, you can reach me in this page so I can help you be part of a great team that will also support you to succeed in this career.
