You ever use the ''there's been a lot of burglaries in this neighborhood in the past month'' line to coax people into buying?

The standard pitch for all crappy alarm dealerships across the board (since the 80s- yes that it's that outdated) is something along the lines of: "Hey could you help me out? Don't worry i'm not trying to sell you something. (LOL no, really that's how it goes.) Due to recent break-ins in the area we're out hear to show your community that we care about its safety with a few free system give aways. If i gave you a system, you'd use it right?" You then proceed to give them free equipment but charge them monthly fees. Which is the same. exact. deal. that every company offers. It's incredibly dishonest. Nowadays people are a lot smarter. With the internet we've all heard about scams people fall for. We all know exactly how much crime is going on in your area. If you went into a neighborhood with that pitch or anything along the lines people would laugh in your face and you'd never get a single sale. Even with no vehicle, two forms of I.D, and a state alarm board license (proves i passed background check), a uniform, and business cards with my phone number and email on them people would CONSTANTLY accuse me of scouting out a neighborhood to come back later and rob people. The cops would get called on me about once every two weeks (i was really nonthreatening and had them called the least on my team). For my black co-workers it would happens twice a week. I'm not joking. It blows my mind that no matter how information you give people about yourself, they still will see you as some smooth criminal scam artist because you knocked on their door.

Did you ever have to dump at the home of a (potential) customer?

The only way to go to the bathroom in area is to ask somebody to use theirs. Thirsty? Ask someone for water. Hot? Get inside a house. Bathroom? Get inside a house and ask someone to use their bathroom. Sometimes there would be construction sites with porter-pottys and that was the ***. My coworkers would *** in someones house once a day.... but i HATED doing it. I literally did it one time. I was trying to sell some elderly woman and it was apparent about 10mins in she had dementia or something and i would be a complete prick if i sold her. Anyways, after trying and failing miserably to sell her i decided she wouldn't remember anyways so why not.

Of all the houses u go to how many actually buy the servicdes?

About 1%. It was more like 3% for me. But it's insane how sales work in door to door... you will go an entire week and not make a dime and then on the last day of the week sell 3 systems which is worth over $1,000 in commission. At my best i was shooting around 10% but that only last a couple of weeks.

1. How were you paid? 100% commission, salary plus commission, or something else? 2. How physically tired did you feel at the end of the day? 3. You see a sticker on the window for a competitor at a house. Do you still bother to try to make the sale? 4. Why did you stop?

1. Some companies offer $7.25 an hour with commission. But the way it works is if you beat the amount you earned hourly with what you've accumulated that pay period in commission, you don't get to keep your hourly.EX (in simplified numbers numbers): You earned $100 in hourly in a 2 week period and $200 in commission. You only get to keep the $200 from the commission since you earned more than you did with your hourly pay. Or if you earned $100 dollars in hourly, but only made $80 commission you'd get to keep the $100 from your hourly pay. That usually only lasts a training period (like 2 months) then you're strictly commission. It's a lot more stressful. 2. I've done landscaping, roofing, bar backing and a couple of other things. Door to door sales is by the most physically and mentally draining thing i've ever done. One time my coworker had a step counter on going on one of his bad days and think he was just under 5miles if i remember correctly. From 10:00AM-9:00PM 6 days a week every single week. They work you like dogs. Lets put it this way: It's so heart breaking to work your *** off and come up with nothing that the only reason the turnover rate wasn't 100% within the first month is because me, my roommate, and my manager didn't quit. I've never seen so many people come and go from a job because its too hard. 3. Yes. One of the first things you ask them is: "I saw the sign, is that from you or a previous owner?" If they say it's there's, ask how long they've had it. I've memorized how long each company's contract is for their monitoring. CPI is 5 years in my state usually. If they say they have it more than 5 years i go in for the kill. 4. Like i said, they work you like dogs 6 days a week. I was making so much money and working so much my drug habit to keep up was getting so bad i could barely function at one point. One month i had no rent and didn't feel like working 60 hours in a week to potentially make no money. So i started working at a car dealership who offered hourly.

This is weird but I admire DTD sales people. What's the house of your richest client like? Lamborghini or Ferrari in their garage?

It's expensive to set up giant houses with our budget, so we would usually stick to more middle income people. But i did set up a few extremely wealthy people. I met someone who is an engineer for tesla motors... the collectible car crap this guy had had to be worth a fortune. Also he had one of these in his garage. He also had a Telsa car in his garage that he said was one of the first made of its kind. I'm sorry i'm not a car guy so i don't remember any specifics. My manager is a huge car guy, and he said with all the options the car in his garage was worth over $130K. He didn't buy a system because he said he could build a better one on his own.

What was the most pleasant experience you had as a door to door? As in being invited in, or them being happy to talk to you or whatever?

Hmmm... One time (the ONLY time, and i mean the only time between me and the dozen or so salesmen i saw at my office) at the end of my sales pitch the lady i was giving it to said "SOLD! Come on in!". I walked in and we signed paperwork. Turns out she was from an expensive part of New York and was paying double for the same service i was offering before she moved to my state. She had 5 rescue dogs and they where so much fun. She was a total hippy and really chill. She had a little dog with really bad PTSD because he saw his litter-mate get killed by a pitbull. The only way the dog could eat is if she grabbed a toy and got him exited and happy enough to want to eat. If she didn't do this the dog would starve itself. Really cool ***' lady. All her dogs where incredibly expensive to keep because of various medical issues. But one of her dogs made it onto the cover of some kind of dog treat box or something along those lines.... anyways she didn't work and that dog paid for the treatment of all the other dogs and this woman's rent. The dog in particular had died a few years before she moved to my state, but that dog funded the lives of 5 other dogs and 1 human. It was the first door i knocked of the day. It was the legendary *perfect sale* that salesmen speak of, but never obtain. I haven't thought about her in a long time, thanks for asking this question :)

How do you generate your leads? Is it just, 'This is the neighborhood I go to today?' Or you're assigned locations?

It's all cold calling. It works like this: 1 manager, 4 or so ***, and 1 van. Everyone piles in the van at the office and the manager drives the flock of *** to a residential area with multiple neighborhoods (preferably all within a 10mile radius) and each salesmen gets his own neighborhood to walk around in. Some teams drop off off everyone in one neighborhood, but this is much more annoying to the residents as opposed to just one guy walking around. We where a lot better than the average door to door team, though.

Any good stories, like anything crazy or interesting ever happen at a house that you were selling too?

Too many to tell... can you be more specific? I've smoked weed with people, gotten drunk... SO MANY GUNS IN MY FACE OH MY GOD..... One time my co-worker was taking a dump in someones house an as he was whiping his *** 3 little girls came screaming out from behind the shower curtain and ran outside the bathroom leaving him with his pants down and the door open. The children's father saw the whole thing.
