What’s the hurry?

03 10 2013

Past few days have been much more busier than usual for all our clients. No, it wasn’t half yearly closing or being in the midst of a festival.

What was it then, I wondered?
Almost every second person was busy, busy answering the calls. Calls being received from Life Insurance companies and agents.

A lot which believed “Transactions” and “Sales” superseded “Experience” and “Relationship’s”

One might wonder what am I talking about?

Well to put it in simple terms, everyone, almost everyone was subjected to “please BUY this Insurance” before … date!
I Wonder with the advent of service tax being added into the policies, it anyways wouldn’t benefit the insurance companies nor the policy holders. So what was the entire buzz about?

Firstly, it was a case of “Selling” which meant: sell whatever one can and in quantity too.

Secondly, hype was created of losing benefits under life insurance policies if one wouldn’t buy them

#THiiNK has been wondering since many years now, isn’t it time that clients seeks to insures oneself by seeking term plans?

With so many innovative marketing pitches and sales orientation, one wonders, why didn’t none of the tele call ever mention “Term Plan”? Wasn’t it the best and most cost effective way of insuring self?

#THiiNK wonders, Why would anyone want to buy Insurance policies before they go off the shelf?

Do we buy medicines just before the expiry date or for that matter, food item or toiletries even. For that matter why would one buy an older version of a mobile?

What were the agents #thiinkin, would clients be buying “obsolete cars” when one had newer and technologically advanced cars to choose from?

After all, the latest offering in everything that we buy is always that bit better than the earlier one…from computer software to applications.

One wonders then, why buy life insurance just because we keep getting these pesky calls to buy them?

I would rather be glad to see clients Queue up to seek life insurance solutions through term plans rather than buy old versions of “investment cum insurance plans”

Time’s ticking away, after all one doesn’t require a pesky telephone call to safeguard our near and dear ones. #hourglassnowsthetime to get going with pure risk covers.
