In today’s day and age, people typically purchase things online. They like the convenience of not having to leave their homes to go shopping. With online shopping though, comes shipping costs and the downside of not having your goods in hand immediately.
That means many people are willing to pay an arm and a leg to get quick shipping. For some orders, consumers will pay 50% or more of the normal delivery fee when overnight or 2-day shipping is selected, and it can be even more expensive for air shipping rates. To combat this dilemma, we have door to door selling! A door to door service brings all of the benefits of not having to leave your home to shop while eliminating the wait for shipping because door to door delivery is also available. If you plan on picking up this trade, here are some door to door directions to be successful in selling your products.
The first thing you want to do when door to door selling is make sure that you grab the customer’s attention. You want to get them involved in some sort of conversation before they have the chance to slam the door in your face. Tell a quick joke, flash a smile, or reach for a handshake. You want to make sure the customer wants to listen to what you have to say.
Unfortunately, not everyone is going to give you a “yes.” Knowing this, it is important to come to an understanding of the likelihood that the customer will actually purchase your product almost right away. If they are a “no,” you don’t want to waste any more of your time or theirs. You can use that extra time to move on to the next potential buyer.
Sell Your Product
You want your customers to really believe in the product that you are selling them. You don’t want them to experience buyer’s remorse. Make them feel good about the deal and about what you are selling. You will have satisfied customers every time.
Remember these three tips the next time you want to start selling products door to door, and you will always be successful!
