How many times have you walked in to a business and had the owner say this: "I get people like you in here all the time...."? If you are like any of our other sales people you know the answer: Every day.
While this is a fairly easy objection to over come ( watch our rejections and rebuttals webinar on the agent portal if you need a refresher on this rebuttal ) You can avoid getting this objection altogether if you change where you are selling.
The biggest issue we run in to when we sell credit card processing is that they want to go where all of the businesses are. Typically downtown or a strip mall. The problem with this is that EVERY sales rep in our industry is going to the SAME PLACES! This is causing multiple problems. One is that you are going to bump in to this rejection and two is that profit at these businesses has been driven down since they have renegotiated their deals so many times.
BUT - There is a solution and it's obvious. Go where nobody else is going. Find the businesses that are standing alone in the middle of nowhere. Find industrial parks. Go to medical and dental buildings. Go out of your way to sell in places that have never been sold to by anyone ever before. There is significantly more profit and a whole lot less competition.
Open up google maps and search for the following terms: industrial park, dental office, medical office, and even the word business. Find the businesses that are NOT downtown. Go there and you will be surprised to hear that many of these businesses have not negotiated their contracts in years.
Success in our business can be easy. It all starts with finding the under-served client. Begin the process by NOT going where everyone else is.
