Selling face-to-face might seem like the most terrifying thing on earth for the newbie door-to-door salesman. However, if you understand that face to face selling is nothing more than a numbers game, you’d find it easier to take things all in stride.

Here is exactly how it works: if you go door to door, making cold calls to possible clients or customers, you are statistically going to have twenty prospects and five actual sales. That is the numbers game.

If you understand this numbers game, you will quickly understand that you become an effective salesperson by selling smarter and not by selling faster. Also, you may need to quickly ditch whatever indoctrination you gained from your sales training lectures. You are invariably going to learn new and even more valuable stuff from every face to face encounter with your prospects. Here are some things to help you on your way.

Your no. 2 tactic really counts. People tend to be judgmental and quickly form decisions. They judge you on your first impression , so you should choose to make an effort to have that positive lasting first impression.

Hi Tc, I agree with your point, you must choose to make good positive impression without being too judge-mental.

Thanks for your comment!
