Do Business Their Way

Not every prospect wants to do business with you using the same protocols and procedures that make you comfortable.

When you insist on things going your way, doing business your way, you quickly ostracize a percentage of people who would like to do business with you… if you would only listen to them… and ask them how they would like to do business.

Since you don’t or won’t, they’ll hold out for somebody who will.

Some of your best prospects are found outside your normal working hours. So, switch things up… if you usually go knock in the daytime, knock in the evenings instead or vice versa.

People like to believe they have choices.

If they don’t want to do business your preferred way, at your preferred hour, at the very least offer a few alternatives and ask them to make the choice.

If you’re going to make it in roofing sales, you need more than one way to close a deal… something besides, “we do the work for what the insurance company pays.”

Ask your sales manager or roofing company owner for door knocking training on how to be most effective in your prospecting.
