Door-knocking is the most effective way of making face-to-face community contact, but it has become a lost art. With the recent focus on customer privacy, door-knocking seems like an intrusion into other people’s lives. But those who try it for the first time are usually surprised by the pleasant reception they receive. Here are some suggestions that will help you promote your services face-toface.
BEFORE YOU GO OUT
◆ Begin with a door hanger
Try leaving a door hanger two days before you go door-knocking. It should briefly describe the project and say that someone will be around in person.
◆ Wear an official name tag
Door-knockers should wear name tags with the logo of their organization. The best name tags will also include a color photo and the name of the caller.
◆ Have people knock their own blocks
The easiest way to do door-knocking is to try your local area first. Being a neighbor creates an immediate connection with the person answering the door; after that, everything else is easy.
◆ Find a good excuse to door-knock
A short survey about local concerns or a current project is a good excuse. Figure out responses for various situations. What if the person who answers the door cannot speak English? What if a child answers the door?
WHEN YOU GO OUT
◆ When to go and what to do first
The best times to knock are usually Saturdays. On other days, after dinner is ideal. When someone answers the door, smile and introduce yourself; say you are a volunteer and, if it helps, state where you live. Give the name of your organization and, briefly, the reason for the visit.
◆ State what action the other person should take and the benefits
Tell the person what they need to do and how their actions will benefit themselves and others. If a person hesitates, emphasize benefits you’ve already mentioned and then, if necessary, add further benefits. If a person agrees, follow up immediately. If possible, get a donation, a signature, or a promise.
◆ Record contact information on the spot
Record names, addresses, e-mail addresses, phone numbers, and responses to questions on the spot. You won’t remember them later!
