One of your posts Inspired Me.
Maybe this blows you away too reading the forums, it cant just be me:
"Thousands of people are willing to go door to door in sales jobs every day selling $2000 products, just to make a $250-$300 commission, in hopes of making a coup1e of sales per day. Maybe even MILLIONS of people do this."
And on any local door to door sales team, (if anyone has been out there, they know this), there are a few guys on every team who consistently make 2-3 sales per day at 2 grand per sale on "cold calls!" And they only make $250!!
It freaks me out, seriously.
They think its a great opportunity.
Here's what freaks me out about it:
It blows me away that online marketers arent willing to do that even when they get to keep the whole 2 grand. Or they arent willing to spend two hours per day on the phone.
I mean, and you know this is absolutely the Gods honest truth.... THOUSANDS of people make their living door to door, and think they have the greatest opportunity in the world to make $5-600 bucks per day selling 2 sales per day on cold calls, at 2 grand per pop, and only making a $250 commission per sale.
And they think its GREAT!
And its just all in a days work...! They do it day in and day out...!
Hardly anyone in the internet forums believes this. Its like they think you are scamming if you make a claim, of that kind of experience, when THOUSANDS of people do it...Its not that rare... for it to be so unbelievable.
I guess thats why Im so passionate talking about this stuff, because I have been in the offline cold sales world alot... And I can see the desperate need for the new generation who has never been off the internet to see this reality.
Not to be redundant but it FREAKIN AMAZES ME, that people think making a few cold calls is hard when they make a heck of alot more than $250 like all these guys out there doing that , selling vaccum cleaners and all kinds of stuff...thinking they are the cats meow, closing 2 or 3 sales per day (An unbelievable figure to most IMr's) , for such a low percentage...and for most online marketers making enough cold calls to make 2 sales per WEEK is not worth it, even though they get keep the whole $1500 per sale...?
These door to door people selling kirbys do a sale or more per DAY on a cold call to make what an offliner could on one single sale working only 6-8 hours per week or less if they practiced.
Its just amazing.
Not trying to be judgemental, but your posts remind me of that, and reminds me of why Im out here on the internet sounding like a crazy John the Baptist or something, screaming in the wilderness.
I mean, Claude, am I lying? Did you have people in your organization who closed 2 sales per day on average?
Its like nobody around here really believes that average people really do this every day...and they think making cold sales is some kind of myth or something.
You think demonstrating the value of a website to a business person who has money, and who can cut a check is alot to swallow?
Try learning all 50 aspects of a kirby vacuum cleaner that does everything but your dishes...getting into someones door, and talking your way through their whole house, even getting into their bedroom, even taking back their sheets in front of them,to demonstrate to them that they have dust mites on their own bed, doing 10 other demonstrations in the same pitch, taking apart the machine and re assembling it for every demonstration, in a two hour presentation, that sometimes takes 3, on a cold door to door call, with no appointment... Without having been invited!
AND to top it off, you are presenting something for $2500 bucks , with their husband standing there shaking his head saying he can go to walmart and get a vacuum for $100! lol
Then , after getting a "yes", having to sweat it, getting them through the whole financing thing before you can even call it a deal, while they are wishing you would hurry because their favorite TV show is coming on any minute, and you are just cringing and with white knuckles after all this work.... hoping they wont ask you to leave and come back another time before you can seal the deal...because its getting too long and you are losing their patience in the financing process... and you have to get it done before buyers remorse kicks in and changes their mind!
Faithfully staying the course straight through, from the point of knocking on their door cold, until you have pitched them for two hours, gotten them financed, signed contracts, and hopefully leave their home with a check, all in one call.
HERES THE KICKER:
Then only making $250 for all that work...and going straight to knock another ten doors and do it again.
Most internet marketers would NEVER believe that thousands of sales people do that, every single day, and close two sales per day.
Thousands of people do this Daily, and other sales jobs that are very similar, and close multiple sales daily for virtual PEANUTS in commission.
Offline sales are much easier, and the pay is much higher.
Is cold calling business owners, setting actual "appointments" for a few hours per week, making $1500 per sale really that much of a drag?
C'mon... Really? :rolleyes:
