Quick Ways to Boost Daily Productivity in Insurance Sales

April 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 166

Maximizing your daily productivity is one of the keys to maximizing your success. Whether you are trying to run an office efficiently, increase your sales or stay on top of the latest developments in the insurance industry, you want to make sure you are as productive as you can be. Unfortunately, there may be many things standing in your way. Here are four ways you can help prevent a lack of productivity so you can make the most out of every minute of your work day.

  1. Prioritize your daily activities. Do you have certain things you do each day that produce greater revenue-generating capabilities? Are there tasks that simply must get done no matter what? If so, make a list of the things you have to do each day and prioritize them. The ones that produce the greatest revenue and the tasks that must get done should be at the top of your list. Create a specified time by which you have to get those tasks done and be sure to work on those tasks during that time. If you don't sort out your day in terms of timed blocks, other things get in the way and you won't get the important things finished.
  2. Check your email less often. Many business people think it's essential to check their email several times each hour. They might even have an alert that lets them know when a new email arrives so they can check it immediately. But this simply drains the minutes out of your day. Instead of worrying about constantly checking your email, check it every couple hours instead. Respond to the emails that are time sensitive and save the rest for the end of the day. You'll be surprised how much time you'll save during the day.
  3. Learn to delegate the less important tasks. If you have an office with a staff, learn to delegate the tasks that are easier and less important. Those are generally the ones that do not involve generating a great deal of revenue. Many agency owners have a problem delegating tasks so this may be a difficult obstacle for you to overcome. But if you can let your staff handle some less important tasks, you can focus on the tasks that will bring in the most revenue.
  4. Learn about time-saving technologies. There are many new software programs, gadgets and other pieces of technology designed to help you save time during your day. Do you know how to use all of the features in Microsoft Outlook? Or do you know how to create a spreadsheet in Excel? These are just a couple of the software programs you can use to your advantage which will save you a lot of time during your typical work day. Take a class or read up on how to use these programs to see what features you can use to your advantage.

Using these suggestions will help you save a lot of time during a typical day at your agency and it will increase your personal productivity and the productivity of your staff. And since your level of productivity is related to the amount of revenue you can generate, you simply can't go wrong.
