    I would imagine that is going to be VERY hard, do you plan to actually knock on doors or just phone them because I think almost all companies will have some sort of website and you may spend more in travel costs and time than you will make if you are physically travelling to the companies IMO.

      No one goes door to door for this service,
      I would say try this out and see what happens....

      It is so unusual that business owners will take notice!!!!

      Going door to door takes time, and many will not be in, not be available, or just not want to see you....

      But for those that do, you will have the ability to build a personal connection and just ask lots of open ended questions.

      You can frame it as you are dropping in to introduce yourself to the local area, and then just have an open discussion....

      Create a short three question survey to use and ask them to take a minute to take, and use this to get them to open up.

        According to these threads:

        No one cold calls...emails are hit and miss...direct mail is costly and has a too low a response....and now....no one goes door to door.

        So that leaves the question: How does anything ever get sold?

          If no one cold calls door to door then you have a built in niche. Go for it and do not look back.
          Prepare yourself and do not go in blind.

          I sell my services door to door and have a high success rate.

          There is a lot to learn however in how to deal with door to door. It is an art like any other form of pitching services in order to have a good success rate.

            I must add one more comment. Yes it is true that many feel door to door is not worth time and energy. That is because many have not found out how to do it successfully. I sell my services door to door at times.


            I put campaigns together into 6 week sections. When I do a 6 week campaign, I made over $10,000 each and every one to date. It works like any other form of marketing. You simply have to have the right plan just like any other form of marketing and pitching your services.

              Bit daunting replying when Michael Bucker (who has the experience) has posted. I've sold advertising door to door in the very distant pre-internet past.
              This is just a thought: if you went door to door, as with anything - you need to think of the business owner. You can take any approach you like, but I'd be more inclined to go in without intending to particularly pitch.
              If I was doing this as a newbie in my local area, I'd be more likely to go in with a brochure and just say, "g'day i'm a new local business and just wanted to say hello and to drop off my brochure. let me know if you just want to have a chat about anything internet related etc"....and just see where (if anywhere) the conversation goes. At least you've gotten out and met people. Sometimes you'll get no further than dropping a brochure with the receptionist - anywhere from that to closing a sale.

              Michael Bucker - what do you think of the above?


              Also, I don't want to take this off topic (back to cold calling) but I was just wondering this morning on the way to work: what if you did some cold calling solely in order to say "hey i'm new etc - could i come in just to say g'day and drop off a brochure etc?". Then you go for your visit (and can take your display folder or ipad, laptop - whatever). I guess this is "appointment setting" but from a very general point of view.

              There must be some marketing studies that have already compared general results from all this stuff!

    I agree....door to door isn't worth the time or energy. Attend local networking groups like LeTip or BNI. Can also go to Chamber or Commerce, Meet Up Groups and other business networking groups.

      I am sure all of us have been their a one time or another. Door to door sucks majorly. lol. But if it came down to it, I would say that cold calling is much better. Mailing a very targeted offer that your niche can't resist is great also. But with anything, until you test to see which of your offers are working the best with a mailing, is all on your dime.

    I cold call door-to-door sometimes.

    I always research my main prospect and at least 10 other prospects in the area beforehand though (usually more).

    I go in with a short marketing report for their company.
    Saved copies of websites I've worked with in the past (really want to get a tablet and sell mobile. That's another story though).
    And a couple graphs that I can use to help me visualize my explainations.

    That + the knowledge you already have, should be a slam dunk when it comes to closing a sale with a business.
    Also, always remember to be polite and courteous, they're as busy as you are!

    I usually get one of those 10 cold-leads to become at least a follow-up appointment booked.
