Door to Door Dead?

Positive or negative, I really appreciate (and sometimes find humorous) the book reviews I’ve received over the years…here are some of my favorites:

Outdated material. Door to door is dead in my mind. Good luck but this is a tough business unless you have a really thick skin.

Dead? Really? Try telling that to Alterra Pest Control which employs hundreds of door-to-door sales reps. Alterra recently sold to Terminix for somewhere in the neighborhood of $50 million!

It also seems like that Vivint company is still doing alright. Vivint Solar was recently acquired by SunEdison for over $2 billion! And if you didn’t know, Vivint employs thousands of direct to consumer sales representatives.

How about these next two reviews…talk about your contradictory viewpoints:

Great sales book for the good sales person.
Not for the newbie in my opinion.
For everyone else, it’s a must listen.

Great book for beginners if you have any kind of sales skills or have done sales more than 5 years probably not a lot to help in my opinion.

So it’s not for newbies, but great for beginners…hmmm. I guess you’ll just have to read it and formulate your own opinion.

But I would argue with thousands of copies sold and hundreds of D2D Millionaire clients, there must be something to this door-to-door sales thing…it can’t be completely dead, can it?

The only thing I know for certain is that my  mom isn’t the only one buying copies anymore!
