More Ways NAA Agents Can Help than ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

By now you’ve probably seen tons of videos on the internet of people dumping ice water on their heads as a “challenge” for charity. The hashtags #ALSicebucketchallenge and #icebucketchallenge have taken social media by storm. The challenge has raised tens of millions of dollars for research on ALS so far. While raising money for charity is a great thing to do, there are other things we (agents of National Agents Alliance) can do directly for these families. But first, we need to look further into what ALS patients go through and what they and their families need.

What is ALS?

ALS or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is a neurodegenerative disease that currently has no cure. Patients lose the ability to voluntarily move muscles and can eventually become fully paralyzed. The disease ultimately causes the patient’s death. It’s also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

What do the patients and their families need?

For most families dealing with ALS, they need emotional support and financial help. An ALS diagnosis can be extremely stressful as the patient and their family deals with the sadness that a life will come to an end soon along with the financial stress of medical bills and final arrangements. While they turn to family, friends and doctors for support, most families have nowhere to turn to for extra finances.

How can NAA agents help?

Some fortunate families have planned ahead and already have a life insurance policy in place that can help with immediate medical bills and cover final expenses. For those who don’t have life insurance, it’s almost impossible to find a company who will insure them after their diagnosis.

That’s where we can help. The Alliance currently offers two Guaranteed Issue Whole Life products from Kemper Senior Solutions and National Guardian Life. Everyone who is between the ages of 40 and 80 can qualify for these products, regardless of their health. Because ALS is most commonly diagnosed in people ages 40-70, most ALS patients will automatically qualify. Although Kemper isn’t available in all states, NGL’s policy is available in every state except New York, so most ALS patients in the U.S. can get coverage. The policy can ensure that the patient’s loved ones won’t have to face the burden of outstanding medical bills, funeral costs and other final expenses.

While the ice bucket challenge has been successful in raising money for future treatments and cures, there are other things we can do to help the families who are suffering right now. If you’re an agent and would like to learn more about these products, visit the carrier pages on www.naaleads.com or take a look at the free product courses on www.naauniversity.com.

If you or a friend or family member has ALS and are interested in life insurance coverage, please fill out your information on www.naalife.com. Our agents will be happy to help you through this difficult time.

Instead of having only general sessions, this conference will have both general sessions that everyone can attend and smaller breakout sessions with more specific topics. You’ll get to pick which sessions you want to attend. Some breakout session topics include The Basics of OASys and How to Take Advantage of the NAA Leads System, How to set up your ATM, and Leadership TEAM Building with Jeff Bright – and those are just a few!

This ticket includes 5 meals right at the Alliance Headquarters, so you won’t have to leave the area and you’ll get to spend quality time with people who can help you succeed. PLUS you’ll get a free audio recording of the entire weekend, which won’t be available for sale!

Not from the area? We’ve got special group rates at local hotels. These locations include Ramada on 2703 Ramada Road, Hampton Inn on 2935 Saconn Drive, and Quality Inn on 2444 Maple Avenue. We had a group rate at Best Western, but they’ve already sold out! There will be shuttles running from these hotels to NAA headquarters from Friday, July 18th to Sunday, July 20th.

If you haven’t gotten your ticket yet, what are you waiting for? Ticket prices go up at the door and there are a limited number of All-Inclusive Tickets so go to www.allianceeventures.com and register now!


How Do You Achieve Success? Just Ask!

What if Andy never asked Fitz to join the Alliance? What if no one ever asked you to join The Alliance?

Many people miss out on opportunities for success simply because they were afraid to ask someone a simple question. You’ve probably thought about asking your neighbor if they needed life insurance or if they need a job, but never asked because you were afraid they wouldn’t be interested. You can’t succeed if you don’t ask! Below are some questions you can ask to help others and become more successful.Don't be afraid to ask questions

Ask friends, family, and acquaintances
Whether you’re in a conversation with a good friend, your sister-in-law, or someone you just met, you can always slip a question into any conversation. Have you ever thought about life insurance? Do you have a retirement plan at work? Have you ever thought about trying a different career? Of course, you won’t ask all of those questions at once, but you if you politely slip them into your conversations you can show the other person that you care about them and their future. There’s always a chance that they could use your help or advice. If not, they might come to you if they think of someone else you could help.

Ask your manager
Some people feel like they’re bothering their manager if they ask questions, but that’s what your manager is there for – to help you succeed! Don’t be afraid to ask questions. How am I doing? What could I do to improve in this area? Do you have any advice about this? Your manager should be more than willing to answer your questions, or point you in a direction of someone else who can help you. If you find that your manager is unwilling to respond to you, don’t take that as a sign to stop asking – you need those answers! Ask other agents or our staff at headquarters where you can find answers to all of your questions.

Ask your team
Just as you are sometimes afraid to ask questions, your teammates might have the same fear. If you haven’t heard from some of your teammates in a while, don’t be afraid to make a quick phone call or email to ask how they’re doing or if there is anything you can do to help them. If they see that you’re willing to help them out, they’ll be happier to work with you and more likely to help you out when you need it.

By asking questions of others you can build relationships, help others, make more sales, build up your team and achieve the success you’ve always wanted. Don’t miss out on an opportunity just because you’re afraid to ask one little question. The answer you get may change your life and theirs!

Make the Most of Your Alliance Leads

Here at National Agents Alliance, we strive to provide quality leads to help you get more families covered and more money in your bank account. Our leads are customers who are currently seeking life insurance or have contacted us for services in the past. Our speed leads even go through a Fraud Checker system to ensure that you’re getting the best quality leads. Even though we do our best to give you perfect leads, people sometimes make mistakes when writing in their information, they may get new phone numbers or addresses, and some may even change their name.

If you find yourself with a lead that has a disconnected phone number or an address that doesn’t seem correct, try using the following tips to locate the correct address or phone number.

  1. Check www.whitepages.com. White Pages allows you to look up information by phone number, address, or by name. If you can find the person on the lead, you may be able to find a second phone number for them or a second address.
  2. Try www.spokeo.com. With Spokeo, you can search for a person by name, email, phone, or address.
  3. Search on social media. Plug in the person’s email address into Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter. You may be able to find more information that way.
  4. Knock on their door. If you have an address for the person without a valid phone number, you can always knock on their door and ask if they’re still interested in life insurance.

If none of those steps help you find the customer, you can contact the Lead Performance Team for support. Just remember that each lead is a valuable customer that needs help protecting their family. It’s worth a few extra steps to get that person covered, and possibly coverage for their friends and family.

If you have questions about your leads, contact the Lead Performance Team at corporate headquarters or visit www.leadperformanceteam.com.
