EMPLOYEE BENEFITS CONSULTANT: HOW TO MONETIZE YOUR INSURANCE LICENSE PART 3
Welcome to Part Three of our "How to Monetize Your License" series! In part one and part two, we explored the importance of education and engagement in the insurance sales process and how becoming a carrier-agnostic insurance advisor can help bridge the gap between employees and their benefits packages.

We will also cover how Enrollify, a platform designed for employee benefits consultants, can help you harness the power of technology to streamline processes and enhance your online presence. With this comprehensive support, you can effectively monetize your license and enjoy a fulfilling and successful career in the insurance industry.
So, let's dive in and explore how you can take your insurance career to new heights with Enrollify!
OVERCOME THE CHALLENGES OF BECOMING AN EMPLOYEE BENEFITS CONSULTANT
Until recently, the information and education required to enter the insurance marketplace as an employee benefits consultant were under lock and key. Let’s explore the challenges of becoming an insurance advisor in a consulting firm and how to overcome them.
Most employee benefits consultants amass their knowledge of insurance products through years of being an insurance agent. Knowledge of different carrier products requires working for each carrier individually; producers spend months in an introductory training program and spend years with each carrier selling insurance. Further education isn’t free; users can expect to spend $50 - $100 per class if they want to sell new types of benefits packages.
ENHANCE YOUR SKILLS WITH ENROLLIFY
Enrollify has one of the largest professional development libraries for benefits education on the web, and it’s free. Users can take quizzes to test their understanding and add completed courses to their business profiles, enhancing their human resources and employee benefits program expertise.
Building rapport and trust with a remote employer requires diligent communication and routine reporting. Today, these tasks are often automated or overseen through multiple software integrations. Producers who aren’t technically savvy have two choices; pay high prices for easy-to-use, non-technical software or risk making serious errors in compliance.
Enrollify automates the worst of it so that you can enjoy the best of it. All case management, video conferencing software, smart calendaring, reporting, and payment facilitation are integrated from Day 1. Enrollify has a remote-first alternative to every part of the enrollment process, allowing you to work from anywhere as an employee benefits consultant and benefits broker.
Developing a website takes considerable time and resources, and the payoff is next to nothing if traffic can’t be directed toward the site. Maintaining a profile on LinkedIn is crucial, but qualifications can only be corroborated by your connections, and updating your profile takes time and attention to detail. At the end of the day, all an agency has is your word that the information is true.
PARTNERING WITH ENROLLIFY
Your Benefits Guru profile stakes your claim in the benefits marketplace. As a fully integrated part of the Enrollify platform, your profile makes you available to agencies for new cases. Agencies will always have up-to-date information on your credentials, and your employee benefits consulting profile automatically updates with career milestones.
Again, this is for entrepreneurs interested in a new category of opportunity in the benefits marketplace.

- have access to free training on a range of carriers, products, and insurance software.

SIMPLIFY YOUR BENEFITS CONSULTATIONS WITH ENROLLIFY
Before Enrollify, running cases remotely for employee benefits consultants meant high prices, sophisticated software, and a large margin for error. Today, conducting a benefits consultation is as easy as setting up a profile.
The entire consultation process is housed within the Enrollify platform, meaning you can conduct business wherever you have an internet connection. You’ll receive and negotiate offers through the platform and accept digitally.
