As a remote insurance agent, you work from home to increase the sales of insurance policies. This often includes auto, life, home, health, travel, and other forms of insurance. In this role, you may explain the benefits of each plan to customers, follow up on a list of leads, and address customer concerns and objections. Other duties include responding to online inquiries and providing help to existing customers, rather than exclusively focusing on generating sales for new products. Some details of this job depend on the type of insurance you sell. For example, if you sell customized insurance packages, you may occasionally visit clients to assess any risks associated with their policies.
