My daily F2F strategy (what's your strategy?)
I start the day meeting clubs/organizations at 7am-9am. I then focus on 3 or 4 solid streets each day and hitting every door between 9am - 1:30pm. Then I begin again at 3:30pm and go back through the same neighborhoods hitting all the doors that I received no answer during the first part of the day until the sun goes down (7-7:30). The rest of the night is devoted to planning the next day, thank you cards, etc. That's two hours of club/organization time, eight to eight & a half of pure, uninterrupted cold knocking time, and another hour or two after that of administrative/misc work. I do this 6 days per week with Sundays off but still doing a little "work related" stuff. Fortunately, I'm single with no kids. My hat’s off to those who are in this line of work with a family!<?: prefix = v ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml" /><v:shape id=x0000t75 stroked="f" filled="f" path="[email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected]@5xe" o:preferrelative="t" o:spt="75" coordsize="21600,21600"> @0 1 0">@1">@2 1 2">@3 21600 pixelWidth">@3 21600 pixelHeight">@0 0 1">@6 1 2">@7 21600 pixelWidth">@8 21600 0">@7 21600 pixelHeight">@10 21600 0"><?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
Prospecting SBO's is not my forte and, in my opinion, gets in the way of where I truly excel...neighborhoods. Today was good. Two people going into my top 10 with one asking me to get back with him in about 30 days. I said I'd stop by in a few weeks to say hi and give him a call a few weeks after that to let him know what I find for him. He seemed pleased to hear me say that.
The weather also didn't help. It was storming and pouring for a good 2 hours today in SW Missouri. Long live the 500 day war! I'm fighting to the death!
If you can keep it up, you will either a) drop dead from exhaustion, or b) be running your very own indy office in three years.
not bad. What types of “clubs/organizations” are you prospecting. I’m in a couple local orgs, but they haven’t payed off yet.
