I am 9 weeks out after eval/grad, and I’ve been doorknocking since Sept. 1, 2008.

  To get 25 quality contacts in my market I knock a minimum of 150 residential doors.  That is a good neighborhood.  I have gone 60 doors before with not a single answer.  The best time to doorknock seems to be from about 8:30 or 9:00am to 11:00am, and then from 3:00pm until it gets dark.    It will take you all day (7 hours minimum) to get 25 contacts from doorknocking residential doors.  Once you start selling you can hit 25 fairly easily with the phone, so it is much easier to get your numbers.   Congrats on getting hired.  Enjoy the studying for the 7.  It is by far the easiest part of this job.   You may be different than me.  There is a guy that was in my KYC and Eval/Grad class that would just go anywhere and everywhere chatting up people.  He was entering 40+ contacts per day.  I don't know if they were good prospects, or if he turned any of them into clients, but the more conversations you have in a day the better.   Later,   Bob   My first post after lurking for over a year. . .
