just 30 dollars

This blog highlights our UNLIMITED ONLINE INSURANCE CE for just $30.

A few months ago, I was driving along on a Saturday afternoon, and our business line rang into my phone. I decided to pick it up. Calls like these occasionally happen—running an online business means that the shop is always open. Typically, it takes a few minutes to answer a couple of questions, and off we both go to whatever we both were doing.

Not the case with this call. This gentleman was trying to buy our 30 DAYS UNLIMITED ACCESS and could not get the transaction to go through. Although rare, this too occasionally happens. All was well at the website, but the troubleshooting I tried to walk him through would not do the trick. There are a ton of things on his end that could be interfering with this process, including operator error, none of which I have any control over. Since I am not an IT specialist, I am also ill-equipped to dive-in at that level.

So, I tell him I will call him once I am back in the office, and I will process the transaction for him. Twenty minutes later, I am home and call him again, spending about another ten-minutes processing the order on his behalf. During this discussion, he says the words I long for during many other calls just like this, “And to think, you are going through all of this, and I am only going to pay you 30 dollars.” I could have kissed the ground he walked on.

You have no idea how many times we have customers making this same 30 dollar purchase, who require LOTS of assistance, and in the back of my mind, I am thinking, “All of this for JUST 30 DOLLARS.” Don’t get me wrong—the vast majority of people go to the website, make the purchase, and begin the classes without a peep. That is a profitable business, but there are times we spend a considerable amount of time with someone making this same 30 DOLLAR purchase, without the same gratitude, and I am, in the back of my mind, trying to figure my hourly wage on this one.

I mean, come on, you cannot even go out for a decent meal for this amount, and we are offering UNLIMITED ONLINE INSURANCE CE access for JUST 30 DOLLARS. Agents can get insurance CE for two renewals–we answer your calls on the weekend, and we report your credits within hours, and we offer excellent course material—ALL for JUST 30 DOLLARS.

This is a steal, but this system only works with volume sales. I can’t pay my mortgage if a couple of you make this 30 DOLLAR purchase, but I can if 45 of you do. It is with this volume that I need your help. If you take ONLINE INSURANCE CE with another provider—STOP, and try taking our 30 DAYS UNLIMITED ACCESS next renewal. If you already know the value Bryan Ventures offers, please refer our classes to other agents in your office, community, and other professional networks.

Thank you all so much, and I hope you are both staying safe in this COVID-19 world and enjoying the summer. Please reply if you have any questions or comments for me.
