We must begin thinking differently, the world has changed and agents who not change with it, will be left behind.
Thinking the same way as was done when we entered the annuity business will doom the agent. Use as an example of how leads WERE once gathered, direct mail. How does that work for you now!
What is the key to your success?
Is it leads? Is it referrals?
Is it your ability to sell?
Is it marketing?
If you could select one thing, what would it be?
Leads, referrals and someone to talk to are all important, but NOT the most important.
It is not us saying this, it is the entire marketing world.
How do prospects learn about your credentials and your reputation? The Internet. If you do not have Internet Credentials, the day is coming when you will be out of this business. It is that simple.
The oldest Real Estate firm in America recognized that fact 5 years ago and created an entire division whose only function is to create and monitor their top 2,720 agents Internet Credentials.
Coldwell Banker was founded in 1906 and currently has 34,000 agents in 200 offices across America.
Only the top 8% may participate in this program, Home Office creates and monitors 2,720 agents Internet Credentials. The agents pay $12,000 each for this service.
The top 100 have their social media managed by the home office. They encourage the top agents top NEVER use social media outside the company system.
Your business plan must put your Internet Credentials ahead of your Marketing. It has now become essential that your Internet Credentials must be the foundation of your business.
Amazon research discovered 92% of all customers check credentials and ratings prior to taking any action. When was the last time you agreed to a relationship (business or personal) without first doing an internet search?
Internet credentials represent your presence in the eyes of clients, referrals, leads and prospects.
If you do not build your credentials, your appointment ratio will be lower
Potential clients will “Google” you before calling
Remember Amazon 92%
Build your credentials, build your credibility and your business will grow.
If you do not approach the importance of your credentials as a “must do” you will reduce your chances of success.
Let me repeat: 92% of all “prospective” leads will Google the agent’s name before enhancing any relationship.
The future of annuity marketing will be built around “Internet Credentials.”
We have established a program to address this issue, to help you the agent rise above the competition and to enhance your credentials. Everything below is on the internet, search engines will find it.
Plus, it is FREE!

How we build Agent’s Internet Credentials
Below is an overview of our system and how we help you build your credentials. I used several different agents to expand the example. Links are live.
Meet the Agent
We introduce the agent to their prospects:
Meet Ashok Ramji
The agent’s information becomes part of the search engines results. We keep info updated and accurate.
Invited Authors allows the agent to be published in a national financial website. We also post on our Boomerang sites and Social Media. The links are also posted on any website the agent controls. The articles create terrific cross marketing opportunities.
The search engines will find the agent as an author and increase their credentials.
Invited Author, listing, picture, bio and contact URL https://annuity.com/author/Eric-Hutter/
The process is simple, we build your Bio which contains backlinks to your sites, it also contains contact info. I need a headshot pic that has NOT been posted on the internet. To finish the Author setup will take 3-5 days because it requires a programmer.
You have your own author page database. Articles are always published on the front page on annuity.com as well as your author page.
Articles need to be original content and never published anywhere on the internet prior. Articles are between 300-500 words (more if needed) and single topic. I edit, check for grammar, add some content or subtract based on the article. We then post it to our sites, tweet it to our followers, add it to our Business Facebook and send the original link back to you to post on any websites you own or control. The search engines will find your bio, picture, and article and with luck, they will become part of your internet credentials.
Where are they posted? On the 2nd oldest financial website on the internet: https://annuity.com. You as an author with your articles will gain status with your clients and prospects. Your appointment percentage will increase because you are now a celebrity, your sales will increase.
How many articles a year? That is easy, 2 -5 are plenty. You will be amazed how easy and how effective this POWERFUL system is and how it will effect your overall business.
How do I get started? That is also easy, simply talk to your marketer, they are ready to help you elevate your business.
We use our own proprietary system to expose the agent to over 60,000 media outlets including their local marketing area. This allows the search engines to find and list information about the agent.

Gentlemen, Just wanted to send a short email praising Retire Village, I got a lead back in August of last year, at the time he wasn’t ready to move forward with annuities yet, so I put him into Retire Village. Got a call-in early May of this year said he was ready to move forward ($800,000 annuity sale) all because of Retire Village….
Please pass my gratitude along to Bill and David and all those who should be using Retire Village.
