Unlocking the feelings of prospects to tailor the perfect pitch is a goal of salespeople, brokers and advisors the world over. While perfection may not be attained, a recent research project by Chubb may help keep your pitch from flying off course.
Chubb, the world’s largest publicly traded property and casualty insurer, recently debuted a resource center designed to help independent insurance agent and broker partners, as well as financial advisors, to engage more effectively with current and prospective clients. One of the methods to accomplish this, Chubb says, is to change the language between the service providers and the customers.
Ori Ben-Yishai, CMO at Chubb North America Personal Risk Services, said that when talking with succesful individuals, advisors and agents should be “focusing on their acheivements, rather than their wealth.”
So Chubb found phrases that were real turnoffs when talking with clients or prospective clients, and pieced together phrases to replace those words. The research center was fueled by a months-long project that Chubb conducted with Maslansky + Partners, a language strategy firm.
