The Door to door Salesman
Here with one of my teachers and friends Belvery Eagle Rogers and who taught me the art of direct sales as a salesman or sale women.
Years ago I tried my hand at selling insurance and making money from my efforts selling insurance was a brutal business and if you did not sale you would not eat
30 years before my friend and teacher.Was Scott
There was me selling candy at the age 14-15 door to door with another teacher of the art of door knocking his name was Scott I and 10 other boys went on Friday and Saturday.
To make .50 cent on a $5 dollars box of Carmel Custtter my flavor Peanut Butter Crunch, Color Books, Peanut Brittle, And assortment cookies
And we did this
After school and when we finish our homework selling candy to influent neighbors.
I am going, to be honest with you selling door to door is brutal and very hard when I was young I was shy and care about what others thought and view me to be.
Look I also was hunger and very poor as a kid and had 5 others kids that needed the extra money for my family survival. More about this later
When I tried asking people to buy my candies and other stuff I truly suck. I read the script and No sales happen
That Scott gave each kid. For me, it seems to me I was begging for money.
And there were some kids selling 20 – 40 boxes each and every weekend at .50 a box that was $10 -$20 for a 14-year-old or 15 this was good bread or money each and every week.
Some of our parents were making like 1.25 -1.75 an hour for a 40 hrs week $50 -70 a week
So when you child brings in $20 -or $40 hrs on a weekend.
He or she was going to help with household duties and buy their own clothes if needed
Here is the script as I came remember: Hello my name is Roosevelt Davis I am from the American Candy Company and we are selling and asking for a donation for us to win a trip to Disney world. This was a simple pitch.
Did it work sure did like a charm?
Unfortunately not for me
But not for me until I change the way I thought
Next, we reach into our boxes and show the client what we have to sell. I realize that I am the entertainment business of helping people solve a problem.
And I not did worry about my own stomach.This is when I learn the script and pitch my products to more house faster and had more fun and the people seen the joy from a kid not because I was needed because I knew the product and the sales start pouring in and I became the number sales person on the weekend and won a trip to Disney.
