I will try to make this quick and painless...I have been having MANY MANY problems with selling this winter not to much from the cold weather its basically I think my way of going about getting the acounts such as gas stations...some are independently owned some arent. How do you find who to talk to ? I always went for the corporate office phone #'s and store manager #'s but the foreign people behind the counter never knew any of the #'s . And when I went to stores to talk to the store manager they said they were happy with there current service & or they just signed a contract and I always reply with . Well here are some of the things I would be able to do for you 1. Save you money each month 2. provide a clean image service. 3. point out the parts of the property in which there service is lacking and where I could make it better. 4. End it with asking if I can get a bid in to show you how much I can save you. And at that point they usually interupt and say sorry were not looking for a new service. So im kinda fustrated trying to find new accounts here in charlotte nc...most of the time I will send them a sales pitch letter than 3 weeks later follow up with a visit. Everytime I go to a new shopping complex or any other brand new building they keep the service who seeded the property and did the landscaping for the new building so I have no chance there. Thats also another question how to I become one of those companies that get the subbed work from builders ? Any tips on selling would be great I know this is a subject that has been beat to death but I am in dire need of some tips here. I have lately in the last week or so tried the major gas station chains such as Citgo, Exxon, BP, 76, Shell and all of the owners own multiple stations and allready have a service doing all of the locations which is what I want to do. I have also told the owner if he gives me multiple locations I can give him a deal and still I get turned down. Thanx in advance.
