To Get Your Foot in the Door, Use a Wedge™

door-in-darkWhy is getting your foot in the door such a challenge?

When building new client relationships, “getting your foot in the door” consistently presents the greatest challenge for business-to-business (B2B) sales professionals. To this end, we have identified FIVE primary “door jams:”

  1. No connection or previous relationship.
  2. Not knowing the identity of the decision maker.
  3. The contact’s own distractions.
  4. The gatekeeper.
  5. The economy, everyone in a “hold” mode.
