Wow... when i first started reading your thread, I thought you meant making calls over the phone. Knocking on doors? Here's me taking my hat off to you
I haven't done the knocking on door thing since selling newspaper subscriptions in my pre-teens! I wonder what it's like where you're from, maybe the people are more welcoming. I don't know for sure because I've never done it - but I'm under the impression that in the larger cities people aren't that happy to see you when you just drop in. I could be wrong.
I've actually become pretty good at Cold Calling over the phone though. Even though I rarely do it - I'm pretty good at building relationships if I have a good value proposition. Anyone familiar with Unlock the Game
? That was a good program for cold calling.
These days though, with the internet I believe there are much better ways to leverage your time. More and more people know where to go when ever they are looking for something (internet-google), all you need to do is position yourself to be there when they are looking. Position yourself as the expert the person who can solve their problem and satisfy their need - they will throw money at you all day long! lol...
A lot easier than trying to convince someone how good something they didn't realize they needed is, or asking people 1 by 1 if they want what you have. Don't get me wrong, I know people who've made serious money doing the door to door thing. Just don't know any who are doing it right now...
