"Perseverance is a great element of success. if you only knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody."
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow 1807-1872 Poet
Success is never final and failure is seldom fatal
How soon do you give up?
44% give up after the first rejection
22% give up after the second rejection
14% give up after the third rejection
12% give up after the fourth rejection
In summary 92% of all salespeople give up after No sales on the fourth call Yet 60 % of customers say 'No' four times before saying “Yes”!
Come what may, professional selling is not about being a nuisance - rather it requires one to be polite , courteous but persistent.
