More Speed, Better Deals
Not everyone works out of office cubicles. If you are an insurance or real estate agent, you are constantly on the move from one end of the island to the other, meeting different clients and, hopefully, closing off deals. Instead of taking a taxi and letting every trip to the client’s be a money drain, why not turn it into a source of income — and freedom? Here are two compelling reasons to make the switch:
1. Earn a Little Something Extra
As a real estate agent, closing a deal with your client is your main source of income — but what is stopping you from earning a little something extra when you’re on the way to a meeting and during the break before the next meeting?
Doubling up as a Grab driver allows you to take in some extra cash and even cover your travel expenses thanks to the passenger you picked up on the way to the client’s home.
2. Networking Opportunities
Being constantly on the move means you have to double your networking efforts by specially setting time aside, which can be taxing. One unexpected perk of driving for Grab is that every passenger is a networking opportunity.
Most agents do not enjoy the stability of a base pay. As such, they are willing to sacrifice the quality of their sales pitch or expertise if it means that they will clinch more leads. As they say, “Whatever pays the bills”. This could cause more harm than good. For example, an insurance agent might end up doling out poorer financial advice and in so doing create weaker connections with clients.
Being a Grab driver gives you a base pay and the chance to make genuine connections with passengers in 10- to 15-minute rides. After all, it’s much easier to strike up conversations in a casual and comfortable setting. A bonus? You won’t have to worry about breaking your iron rice bowl with the steady pay that Grab provides. Feel free to provide quality counsel to passengers while earning money on the job!
