3. Cleaning SolutionsCredit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:OldShipWindows.jpg
These guys and gals travel all around in a van and then will swarm upon on a community and knock on literally every door. They will demonstrate how concentrated their cleaning formula is, how well it works, and may even drink some of it to show you it is safe for your children. The cleaning solutions tend to work, but often a lot of pseudo-science is involved. You can negotiate for a better deal, but most of the sales will come from high pressure or the salesmen will simply try and get you to be their friend and feel guilty for not buying any cleaning formula. Many sales crews are notorious for the evening and night partying, but the cleaning solution salesmen often seem to smoke more marijuana than any other sales group. You can make this a good job, but you need to have a good work ethic, get along with people of different ethnicities and cultural backgrounds, and be willing to take no and get yelled at from many potential customers.
4. Magazine SalesCredit: http://www.flickr.com/photos/hectoralejandro/3967217852/
These are the sales crews that go door to door selling magazine subscriptions so they can “raise money for college” or some other B.S. What you would be selling is overpriced magazine subscriptions that can be bought for much less elsewhere. High pressure with a crappy sales proposition, but if you out the effort into it you can be successful doing it. Magazine sales crews are often deemed as the “scum” of the sales world. No matter what you sell, the magazine sales crew tends to be the salesmen crew that lie to people more than any other sales group and are the most unethical. All of these jobs are hard, but once you get the hang of it you may find that you really enjoy them, especially when you have a huge payday from making a lot of sales.
5. Satellite SalesCredit: http://www.flickr.com/photos/smaedli/4729582150/
You simply knock on doors and try to either get new customers or convert customers from the other brand of satellite TV. If you are selling DishTV and someone uses DirecTV and their contract is about to expire, then you might be able to make a sale. Generally satellite salesmen will earn commissions of between $50.00-$150.00 for each sale they make. It can be a very lucrative job, but there also will be days where you knock on doors for 8-10 hours and don’t get a single sale.
How to Succeed in Door to Door Sales
In order to succeed you need to be willing to stick with the job, listen and learn from your trainer and the other experience sales members, learn the sales script, learn to close the sale, and learn to work hard. The more doors you knock on then the more sales you can make. Turnover in this industry is extremely high, but if you are motivated and willing to stick with it then you can become a part of the door to door world of sales in which you are compensated very lucratively.
