8 Songs to Narrate the Agent Experience

Jan. 20, 2023

Every experience in life deserves musical narration, including selling life insurance! That’s right, we’re back with another set of sing-a-longs that capture the spirit of being a life insurance agent. This list of songs is meant to capture the agent experience — from receiving the lead to closing on an application and helping a family.

We believe in “having fun and getting stuff done.” A great way to have some fun during the workday is to whistle while you dial, schedule and meet with your clients .

Here are eight tunes that we hope will get your toe tapping and motivate you to meet with more clients and help more families protect the ones they love.

#1: “9 to 5” Dolly Parton

There are few artists better equipped to help you start your day than Dolly Parton. In her hit “9 to 5” she describes the trials of working a regular corporate office job. It’s a great ode to doing enough to get by and for Symmetry agents a glimpse into an alternate reality where they didn’t choose a path that led to true ownership and a work-life balance.

Dolly’s song is a great way to get in the right mindset of a life insurance agent. As Dolly says, “There’s a better life,” and we hope that our agents are living that life.

#2: “Call me Maybe” Carly Rae Jepson

We threw a wish in the well for this next hit. Carly Rae Jepson’s 2012 anthem was an earworm for many, and now it’s back to reflect the feeling of waiting for that digital lead to give you a ring back. Speed to lead is real for many Symmetry agents, and we’ve found the success of the agent is closely tied to how quickly they reach out to their digital leads.

Carly Rae’s song is a great reminder to agents who spend hours dialing and waiting for the right client to make a connection with. We hope our agents find the right prospect whose “stare is holdin’’” that they can help set up with a perfect-fit insurance product. Hopefully, it’s not crazy though.

#3: “I’m In Your Mind” King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard

The next band is a mouthful, but King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard have a great beat that will be stuck in your head all day. “I’m In Your Mind” has some simple lyrics, but we’re hoping it will resonate with your clients who have considered your advice and are planning on purchasing a policy.

After all, “When I’m in your mind, then I’m in your mind.”

#4: “Cars” Gary Numan

Agents, at least traditionally, have spent a lot of time in their cars. Driving to appointments, attending agency-hosted events, and generally traveling for work has been a part of the life insurance agent lifestyle.

Gary Numan’s one-hit-wonder, “Cars,” is a great ode to the traveling insurance agent helping families across the nation. While a lot more of the work has gone remote, we hope this blast from the past will remind you to keep your clients, “safest of all.”

#5: “Handle with Care” Jenny Lewis

Taking care of clients is the primary role of Symmetry agents. Jenny Lewis’ “Handle with Care” is a cover from a famous Traveling Wilburys song. What can we say? We love Lewis’ reimagining of this tune.

We believe in handling all our clients with care. Whether that’s finding them a policy they can afford or helping them choose which product makes the most sense at that stage in their lives, taking a caring approach is critical to the success of our agents.

#6: “It’s Real” Real Estate

Sometimes, those clients you help will have a hard time believing you found them coverage as affordable as you have. Real Estate’s 2011 melody “It’s Real” can help Symmetry agents reassure their clients that it isn’t too good to be true.

It’s a common misnomer that life insurance is too expensive or only for older clients. As a Symmetry agent, and with the help of this song, you can help break that illusion.

#7: “Doctor Worm” They Might Be Giants

Underwriting is a huge part of helping clients find affordable coverage for themselves and their loved ones. With They Might Be Giants’ hit, “Doctor Worm,”, we understand it’s sometimes difficult to ask invasive medical questions without being an actual doctor.

The titular worm in this song understands all too well. “I’m not a real doctor, but I am a real worm. I am an actual worm.” While our agents are more human than worm-like, we do hope they’ll show us what they know when it comes to covering families with financial products.

#8: “All I Do Is Win” DJ Khaled (feat. T-Pain, Ludacris, Snoop Dog + Rick Ross)

We celebrate wins here at Symmetry Financial Group, and few artists celebrate their own wins more than Dj “Another One” Khaled. In this 2010 banger, Khaled is joined by hip hop royalty to declare that all he does is win “win, win no matter what!”

We hope our agents  have the same mentality when it comes to helping clients secure a product that fits them best at a price they can’t beat.

Sing along with Symmetry

We hope you keep a song in your heart and a swing in your step! Working with families to protect what matters most is a rewarding but sometimes demanding job. That’s why we hope this list of songs will help you face the music and keep you motivated to make a bigger impact in your community and clients.

We’re adding this playlist to our parent company, Quility’s, Spotify profile, and we hope our agents get a kick out of this fun list.

As a Symmetry agent, you will have access to high-quality life insurance, disability income insurance, critical illness insurance, and annuity products from more than 30 well-known insurance companies. This gives you the flexibility and reach you need to tailor plans to meet clients' individual coverage needs.
