How to Sell Door to Door

Okay, so you got your break and entered the industry. Now what? How exactly do you start selling door to door? A lot of people are like, Man, I wanna sell. I get hit up all the time and they’re like, Well, I don’t even know where to go or what to sell or how do I get started or what company? 

In this video, I walk you through how to pick that. Watch it here or keep reading for the key pointers:

Situation

The first one is, what’s your situation?

It has to do with some people wanting to move. Some people are broke as heck. Some people have money in the bank, some have families and kids, and they don’t wanna knock at night. Some people wanna work during the day. Some people like to travel; some people hate to travel. Figure out your situation because the product and company will dictate what that looks like. If you have a company that’s just a summer program, you’re working for four or five months, and that’s very common in the door-to-door. If you’re like, I need to make money all year. I’m not in school.

I want to make a career out of just a year-round program; then you’re gonna want to do something a little bit more year-round. All industries have programs for that, but certain companies specialize in different programs. So, you wanna make sure you’re picking the right company there, which leads me to the second one.

Pick A Product 

Selecting an industry or product area is essential. For some, a change of scenery is beneficial; the familiarity of one’s neighborhood can often hinder sales discipline. Relocating even just 15 minutes away can commit you more fully to the job. For those who can’t move, making the most of the local market is crucial. Choosing a product to sell depends on your experience and preferences

Products like pest control, waste management, and satellite services offer higher sales volume with quicker turnover. At the same time, industries such as solar, roofing, home improvements, and windows typically involve lower sales volume but yield larger commissions per sale.

Pick A Company

Okay? So now number three is you gotta say, okay, let’s pick the company. Now, a lot of you guys might not know who companies are. Every company’s always hiring. They’re looking for talented people who are ambitious and hungry.

I pick a company by figuring out if it aligns with my core values. Now, if you don’t know any companies, you can DM me on Instagram at Sam Taggart or on Facebook, and I’d be more than willing to help connect you. I know people in every state, industry, and product. I have a very, very big network.

So, let me know if you need help finding a company. I’m more than happy to point in the right direction.

Get Trained

Let’s say you sign up with a company; you gotta go get trained. Now, I have an online university. If you want to get deep dive into the nuts and bolts, uh, but make sure that you go to the company with a training program. We have over a hundred and something companies that use our program. You’d be surprised, and many more sign up, but you could sign up as a single user. But some companies will say, Come work here, and good luck. And they throw you to the wolves.

I would avoid that company, I really would, because it shows it’s a sign that they don’t take the time or money and invest in their people and training. If you’re looking for somebody who wants to be legit, ensure you have legit training.

Go Hustle

The last step is to hustle. So many people start door to door and fail because they never actually turn on their hustle muscle. They never fully dive in, never fully commit, and are not willing to do the gritty work and the grind it takes to succeed in this industry. Those that do and say, I’ve got a train, I’ve got the right company, I’ve got the opportunity, you’re driving the Lambo, some drive it in eighth gear, some drive it always in first gear. This is a great opportunity. I don’t care what industry where you’re selling, it’s a great opportunity cause you get to eat what you kill and there are no limits. I know people who have made millions of dollars in this industry. You can too. It’s just up to you whether you will do it or not.

 

Wrapping Up

So, the simple formula to get into door-door sales is to figure out your situation.

Where am I at?

What product and area can I get behind, and where do I wanna be?

And then what company really aligns with my direction, my situation that’s there to help train me and can motivate me to get out and hustle?

So there’s your simple way to do it. If you want more training, I’m here for you. I have tons of free videos but also an entire online university. If you wanna schedule a demo to fast-track your way to success.
