Typical EDJ day of prospecting
I was hoping that some of you could give me an example of a typical door knocking day at EDJ. For example:Prospect local businesses at X o'clock - X o'clock lunch at X o'clock - X o'clock prospect neighborhoods at X o'clock - X o'clock Make phone calls at X o'clock - X o'clock Any quality feedback is appreciated. Thanks
Don’t they give this to you at Eval Grad? Something like:
7 to 9 a.m.: Visit businesses on the way to work.
9 a.m. to noon: Make calls. Call for 45 minute blocks.
Noon: Try to have lunch with a center of influence.
1 to 3: Repeat contacts. If you had an encouraging call in the morning, visit that person with some material.
3 to 7: First contacts, residential.
7 to 8 or 9: More calls.
Those are the basic blocks. You can move them around – first contacts in the morning, one day. Find a schedule that works for you. The idea is that if you have two or three good hours at one activity, you can move on to the next one without getting burned out. The whole key is to spend your time finding people. Retirees are usually available in the morning; working people in the evening.
I hope you deem this quality. I think the first thing you should think about is knocking on doors. Businesses from 7-8:30 and then residential 6 days a week till dark . As painful as it is, it works. Good Luck
fighting chance is 100% right… don’t try and re-invent the wheel… knock on doors and make QUALITY contacts… takes time but it works
What percentage of your time do you spend knocking down the doors of businesses compared to private homes?
I'm new to the business and still studying for the series 7 & 66 so I haven't began prospecting just yet. I was just curious as to what I could expect as far as a typical day of door knocking. I've already become emotionally prepared for working sun-up to sun-down for a few years as a door to door securities salesman.<?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

You can expect stained arm pits, sore feet, and a tremendous reduction in your self-esteem.
You said it moody.Oh, and of those thousands of doors you knock on maybe a handful of people will open accounts with you... DCA a couple hundred bucks a month into an mf, until granny gets sick, or the car needs breaksand they can't continue to add to their holdings. Then it sits untouched for a year and a half until you get a call out of the blue. They undoubtedly will need the money for a "down payment" and want to close the account... or better yet, leave $78 in it for their "future" It will get better some day... or so they say
