When I have a new call I want to try, I call the local ghetto and work the kinks out and get it smooth.

 
What does [email protected] say when he answers?


I ask if your mom wants to put the $5 she just "earned" into advisory solutions...

 
No wonder you failed out of Jones. You don't even understand the Advisory Solutions account minimum.


How bout a weekly DCA...I'm there every week....so are alot of people.

 
Given your production, if my mom had to rely on your business to invest she probably couldn't even DCA. Then, you would go doorknock her anyway, twitching nervously, muttering to yourself "don't ever skip a door, don't ever skip a door".

It's too bad you guys hijacked a decent, helpful thread.  I'd really like to learn more about cold calling processes in this business.  Instead [email protected] is left defending his faliure once again while he should actually be working.

Are you cold calling? What type of firm / products are you representing?

I couldn't aggree more...I should have created a new thread called "SometimesNowhere's Mom". Sorry!

I'm wondering if anyone ever kept similar stats on their door knocking and broke it down to $/door.

I'm sure your firm will have some stats.

No, my prospecting has been 100% door knocking, work for Jones.  I'd like to layer it in but really don't know where to start, what to say, where to call.

Is it working?

Door knocking .. yes, very well.  But it's going to be DARK here at 5pm before to long and I want to adjust my prospecting that used to happen from 5-8pm

I've seen people on other threads talk about buying call lists. Is that worth it for anyone? What about the "Do Not Call" list -- doesn't that make cold calling more difficult?

You buy a scrubbed list.

More than anything, doing something instead of nothing works.

Don't think it's kosher to door knock when it's dark.  Never tried it though...

Sep 29, 2009 6:02 pm

I'm sure your firm will have a great deal of info and stats on that very subject.

 
Do you realize how few people can say "very well" when it comes to prospecting?
Sep 29, 2009 6:10 pm

I'll make some calls, need to start planning for it.

I am seriously amazed at the amount of business and good leads I get knocking on doors.  Now if I can just stop being lazy and doing more of it.

Sep 29, 2009 11:17 pm

That's a good point, I just need to submit myself to the pain...

Call business in the morning. Go see them early afternoon. Door knock homes in the evening. Enter year 2 in Seg 4. Best advice I received on Day 1 was ask a qualified prospect for their business 6-7 times before moving on. GET IT DONE!

Sep 29, 2009 11:43 pm

6-7? why stop - keep asking.
