  • “How does this sound to you?”

  • “Wouldn’t that achieve your goals we discussed?”

  • “Don’t you agree?”

  • “Doesn’t that make sense for you?”

  • This air conditioner has a high energy-efficiency rating (feature) which will result in a 10 percent savings on your energy costs (benefit) because it actually uses 10 percent less energy than older models (advantage).

  • Wouldn’t it be nice to actually reduce energy costs these days? (checking question)

  • Earlier, you confirmed that you really need to reduce cooking time so you can reduce customer waiting time. And this would also allow you to serve more customers per day. (need connection)

  • This cookware is stainless steel with an aluminum core (feature). This type of construction distributes heat 20% faster and more evenly than conventional materials (advantage), which means that you will be able to serve your customers about 5 minutes sooner and with better tasting food (benefit).

  • Wouldn’t that be great! (checking question)

Verbal support analogy choosing me to manage your insurance

Verbal Support - Analogy service-quality agencies by the PIIAI.Choosing Me to Manage Your Insurance

Think about seed corn. There is no questioning the potential of the seed if planted and nourished correctly. The real question is “do you believe the farmer knows how?” Your insurance program is the same. There is no questioning the potential of a proper insurance program for you. The question is “do you believe I am the best one to design and manage that program?”

Verbal support metaphor taking a long term view of personal insurance

Verbal Support – Metaphor service-quality agencies by the PIIAI.Taking a Long-Term View of Personal Insurance

The Pyramids were built to protect family treasures and to stand the test of time. That is the approach I recommend for your personal insurance – choose an agent and policies that will build a Personal Pyramid to protect you and your family now and that will be here to grow and change with you for the long term.

Verbal support analogy fixed vs equity investing

Verbal Support - Analogy service-quality agencies by the PIIAI.Fixed vs. Equity Investing

Fixed investing is like buying a “Twinkie” – you know exactly what you are going to get and all Twinkies are the same. Equity investing is like making a cake – you buy good ingredients, follow the directions, and bake it at the right temperature for the right amount of time. It takes more time and effort but the result is more rewarding.
