What’s up, guys? Sam Taggart with the Door-to-Door Experts and D2DCon and I get hit up a lot of times on what industries to get into, you know, trying to knock doors. They’re like should I do pest, or should I do alarms, or solar? Like, there are so many different things you could sell out there, and not even just in door to door, but direct sales is the right vehicle so that’s step one, just know that you found the right home because the reality is, the income is endless. I know guys making a million dollars plus selling door-to-door, so it’s a great industry to get into. I decided that there are four p’s, we call it, to decide what industry you should get into.
Position
The first P is simple. and its “position”. Position means what position are you in life? Are you broke as a joke needing money fast? Or are you somebody that’s got a nice cushion where you can have a little nest egg to you know, ramp up? What I mean by that, some jobs you know, you’re selling a bigger ticket. Like, solar, roofs things like that it may take a month or two or three months before you even get your first paycheck. Are you in a position to do that? Some of these jobs have lower-level positions, just like a canvasser or a setter position where they’re paying per lead. Whereas other industries like pest control, satellite, and alarms will give you a pretty instant income. You know, pest control is deemed as the easier, quicker sale, then satellite, then alarms, and it just slowly, progressively gets a little bit more difficult. There are other things like water softeners, meat, vacuums, HVAC, and insulation. There are all sorts of industries that are out there that you may want to explore that may have different likes and things like that. So, position is going to ask yourself what financial position and my in and what risk intolerance do I really have?

Plan

The second one is plan. Now, a lot of people they’re like oh I want to sell this and I’m like, well, what’s your plan? If you’re going to sell solar, it’s not like oh, I’m gonna go do that for two months and then go back to school. Solar is better when you’re actually moving, relocating, and building a long-term pipeline. You have got to commit to three to five years, in my opinion. Now. it’s not something you can just go jump back and forth between industries. Some people think they can jump back and forth from industry to industry. Like pest control, it’s only four months. It’s four months and that’s the season. I’m going to do it in between school or I’m gonna do it as a career, but I’m going to work really hard for four or five months and then I’m going to take the other months off and live, recruit, or travel or do whatever you want, go to school and that’s the plan. I want to relocate. I want to move. I want to come back. In some industries, you might relocate long-term. Some industries you might be able to sell right where you live. If that’s the plan, that’s going to determine what industry you’re going to get into.
