    Hi Jordan,

    Thanks for the question. I think the do not call list will force insurance advisors and other sales professionals to change the way they do business.

    Insurance brokers must prospect in a way which is convenient for the prospective client and not broker. This requires innovative thinking and placing yourself in the consumers shoes.

    Today’s consumer does not want to be pressured. They want to receive relevant information in a timely manner – via convenient information mechanisms i.e like the internet. Persistence is still required but it should not be confused with pressure. Successful brokers listen to their clients and prospects and follow up in a systematic and organized manner.
