Lenders' reps go door to door trying to help delinquent borrowers
Date: March 28, 2010

To open a dialogue with delinquent borrowers whose homes might be saved from foreclosure, some lenders are going to extraordinary lengths, including hiring companies such as National Creditors Connection Inc. of Orange County to knock on the doors of customers who are still hiding from them. Although the name may sound like that of a collection agency, it's not. Rather, the Lake Forest firm employs a variety of tools and resources to make field contacts with tardy borrowers in an effort to resolve their problems, one way or another.

Date: March 27, 2010

In order to canvass addresses that did not submit a 2010 Census form by mail, Census takers will begin going door-to-door over the coming four months, however, an e-mail scam that falsely claims to be from the 2010 Census is inaccurate — and the U.S. Census Bureau wants Historic City News readers to know the facts...

A revival for door-to-door marketing
Date: November 10, 2009

Now that the national do-not-call list makes it impossible to reach millions of potential customers, some marketing companies are returning to an old-fashioned alternative: door-to-door salespeople. That puts Michael Mullen on marketing’s new frontier. He knocks on doors in the Nashville area, makes his pitch and, in a good week, earns about $650 selling discount coupon books. “When the lady of the house answers, I say, ’I’m sincere, ma’am, and if I weren’t 100 percent sincere, I wouldn’t be standing in front of you,”’ Mullen said. “It’s a numbers game. This is what I do six days a week from 11:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.”

Door to Door Sales - The forgotten channel
Date: January 28, 2008

The days are long gone when it was common to find a stranger on your doorstep pushing aluminum siding, brushes, or encyclopedias. Yet even today, Mary Kay's 1.7 million "beauty consultants" still drive up in their pink cars to demonstrate and sell cosmetics to women in their homes.

AT&T Goes Door to Door For Sales

Firms jostle for customers with TV-phone-internet deals
Date: October 24, 2006

Cable and satellite companies would obviously rather keep those subscribers to themselves. Cable companies have had success switching some customers over to their digital phone service, with about 4.8 million subscribers at the end of June, according to statistics compiled by Cable Daily News. "It's a great thing for consumers, because consumers are given more choice," said Bruce McGregor, a senior analyst with market research firm Current Analysis. "They can get a package that better meets their needs and budget." That's why Mr. Tils receives a warmer reception than the typical door-to-door salesman would.

Date: June 30, 2005

Jun. 30--David Hutton is pitching newfangled technology the old-fashioned way -- door to door. He is one of about 90 salespeople in Colorado who work for Qwest selling telecommunications services to small businesses, homeowners and apartment dwellers. "It is a numbers game," Hutton said with a shrug last week, after unsuccessfully scouring a row of businesses in an Aurora strip mall. Qwest's "Feet on the Street" program began two years ago with salespeople banging on residential doors. This month, the program expanded to include businesses with fewer than five phone lines.

If you're a local election candidate, one of the most effective ways that you can campaign and win votes is to do door-to-door canvassing in your district or city.
