I want to pick up a medium sized store. However every time I go inside to put a bid on the store I get the manager who keeps telling me that she will pass the quote on the manager and keeps saying “Every time you come in you catch me at a bad time” of course she says this with a smile but I’m getting frustrated.
How do you get past the gatekeepers? I’ve told people I am maintenance and need to speak with the owner. I’ve told people I’m janitorial…what about this one?
Mail the business a check for one buck it will likely get to the owner. Behind the check in the envelope leave your persuasive sales letter.
That might work or they might discard my letter…any other ideas where I can get face 2 face?
You can Google the county tax assessor and find out who owns the business. Good luck from there. I think you can even get an address. Sometimes it’s an office if they have multiple businesses and sometimes it’s a residence. Don’t ask how I know, but they don’t appreciate being approached face to face at home… Maybe put together a professional packet and mail it there is a better option? Seems like your tires are still just spinning and you’d be more productive elsewhere looking at another target.
Ok so I googled the assessor, how do I find out who owns this?
In my area you just do an address search on the assessors site. Should show the building owner. If your lucky that’s the business owner too. Also you could go to the state website and corporation name search that business’ name and it will give ownership details. I think it’s public knowledge.
That’s a lotta work for a maybe on storefront if you ask me.
That’s what I’m thinking.
But if you really need that job, you can break in late at night, take some fingerprint samples, then hack into the ncic database, cross reference your samples with any on record, maybe hack into a couple of other databases, and eventually you’ll find the owners name, address, mother’s maiden name, social security number, etc.
Or just walk into the next store and leave an estimate. And the next, and the next, and the next, and build up a nice route.
ok…well I’m going in tonight…hitting it hard
First we disable the mainframe, then the network computer, make sure the X-Virus has been put into the system and then we blow the charges. When the safe goes they have several automatic machine guns, we’ll use the EMP block to take those out.
We have 8 minutes from the time we blow the first charge to when the helicopter lifts off the pad.
Well good news, I found out the owner. Detective work!
Have you done this? Does it work?
Not if you put it in one of these bad boys.
NO I totally made it up. I could totally see it working though
Now that’s thinking outside the box Chris!
Move on to the next target…
Tell them that you want to pay them for a moment of their time $1.00
Our make yourself a business card in the shape of a ruler and each time you hand your “ruler” out say you are just trying to get your foot in the door. Learned that from a old sales man I worked with.
Rereading your original post, she has already given you the brush off with the bad timing thing. I’d write it off as a wait for a call. I still get calls from my original quarter page single side photocopy fliers that I started out with
