Insurance Agency Business Proposal

I have experienced working with an insurance company [X] for 12 years and have collected great experience in managing insurance programs. In addition to the insurance program, the company also deals in other matters such as operations and so on. I work in the capacity of manager and lead a team of 5 competent members.

Over the course of my service, I met with hundreds of people due to their insurance issues and cleared their minds regarding its objectives. The major task of our job was to answer the queries of our valued clients and provide them ease regarding their insurance plans. It is important for every citizen to have insurance that covers losses and protects its holder, therefore, there are many clients to sell insurance plans, but competition is very high. There are many insurance agencies in the market that provide attractive offers to draw clients towards them.

It is not easy to attract clients as they will move wherever they have to spend less money and get a handsome deal. Sometimes, it gets difficult to manage 10 clients per month. There are different types of insurances and a client chooses whatever type and plan would suit him. I always wanted to provide options to the clients that work best in their favor but being associated with a company, I cannot make my own rules.

Looking forward to your feedback.

Obliged,
