What To Do When The Neighborhood Has Been Knocked Already…. A Sales Reps Nightmare Another Ones Treasure

Coming from the largest knocked neighborhood Arizona, trust me when i say this, turf is turf. I know everyone wants fresh turf where no one has been before but stop and think about it, does that really exists ? The sales people that understand the concept that people will buy no matter what conditions, so long as you present the right product to the right person at the right time are the sales people that outperform any market. I do however believe that there are certain neighborhoods and geographic locations that are better than others, just based on results however do not limit yourself to only finding and picking these places because the realities are you don’t know until you knock it.

It is odd to know that not many people who start door to door end up successful. Take a look at the stats with businesses that succeed in america. 1 in 10 businesses succeed meaning if you were to open a business you have only 10% of success.
