Hopefully, you have decided that you are going to think outside of the box. Just in case you need some more convincing, here comes some more to think about.
Another example of where to go is a Church. You don’t have to be a church member but you do need to choose the church wisely. Your goal is not necessarily to speak to the leader of the church but to the parking attendants. They don’t have the final decision but they are more likely to gain a favorable ear from the Pastor or Father. We all know that it is in the church parking lots that most dings happen. It’s those adorable little children that cause them. They are anxious to get out of the car to find their friends. Bam! goes the door and a dent appears. Now if this is a good church, the church member whose child caused the dent will leave a note, if not, it’s pretty easy to figure out which car left the dent. They don’t want to make a big deal of it with their church brethren but it’s still a dent that needs to be removed. When you see these otherwise very nice cars, leave a card and brochure with a note from you asking to meet or speak with them concerning their dents. If you time it right, you may be able to catch them coming out of services. Don’t bother them going in, their probably running late.
This is an idea that is going to take some planning from you, and one that will cause you to have to rise early if their are three services to deal with. You will soon discover that this was a morning well spent after you begin to get plenty of calls. Please dress appropriately. If you have long hair, tie it back. Wear your nicest work uniform to appear serious about your profession. See you in our final thoughts on Part III.
