A major reason people don’t succeed in door-to-door sales is they aren’t committed to success.
There’s a major difference between just wanting something and being committed to getting it
Ask yourself if you are willing to do what it takes to succeed in door-to-door sales, or if you are just going to go through the motions and hope it works out. A major reason sales reps fail while selling door-to-door is that they only dip their toes in the water instead of diving head first into it.
When you are halfhearted about your commitments it gives you plenty of opportunities to come up with excuses why you can’t succeed or why you don’t reach your goals.
Sales reps that don’t succeed often come up with excuses such as, “I’m not a sales person.” “The people in this territory don’t have money.” “People with these types of houses don’t buy our products.” “A first year sales rep could never sell that many accounts.”
When you only “want” something to happen rather than committing to making it happen, you’ll find reasons to justify your results if they aren’t where you want them to be. When you make a commitment to succeed in door-to-door sales, you will do what it takes to reach your goals.
What being committed to success while selling door to door really means
A lot of sales reps say they are hard workers, and talk a big game about being willing to do what it takes, but are you really willing to follow through on that? We recently had a new sales reps who was on track to be one of the top rookies in the company, but after one tough day of not making any sales he threw in the towel.
This is not the kind of attitude you want if you are going to be a successful sales rep in door-to-door sales. Tough days are inevitable, bad weather, rejection, a few negative prospects, a learning curve to get through, and more all add up to the certainty of tough days.
A major key to success in door-to-door sales is having a commitment to succeed. Top sales reps who sell door to door don’t always feel like getting up early and staying late, knocking on hundreds of doors each day, and bearing the elements, but they do it anyways because they are committed to succeeding at a high level.
Top sales reps understand it might be a short-term sacrifice of doing something they don’t necessarily enjoy all the time, but the freedom and monetary rewards that can be achieved outweigh the negatives. You’ll need thick skin and mental toughness, but if you can make it through the challenges associated with marketing door to door, it can definitely be worth it.
