I have had a phone sales team for a while now and have been wanting to start expanding my empire. I have been thinking about getting material printed and hiring on canvassers to start hitting the streets and talking to local businesses and set up appointments. I have been doing very well with my sales team and the services that we offer so I have kind of been wrapped up with that and have procrastinated on the other ventures that I have been meaning to take. I just recently had two girls come by my office that were passing out their resume's to all of the businesses around the area... Then it hit me I need to hire these girls on to canvas and set up appointments. I was going to hire men that might have some sales skills to do this before, but girls would be great. There were very social and most business owners are male so they are going to not have their guard up as they would with a male. So I hired them along with two other girls. I will let you guys know how it goes along the way and will post the whole experience here for suggestions and comments. Here is a pic of the flyer I had made. I modified a flyer that I found here on BHW a while back. The flyers were a little pricey because I needed them made ASAP and had them printed at Office Depot. I had 250 color semi-thick paper, 100 color thick paper, and 200 black and white. I had two to a page printed and cut and it cost me $170. Here is the flyer that I used. Now that I am looking at it I see a few things that I can change to hopefully increase conversion. For the most part I think it is good, I used some NLP techniques in it. I am starting off by paying the girls $20 per appointment set and paying them 25% on the initial sale. Not bad for them and not bad for me. Myself and my best salesman are currently at 100% for face to face closings.
