Topics: Solar Sales, Solar Proposal, Solar Business, Marketing

While technology may have dramatically changed the solar sales landscape, most solar installers still use good ol’ door-to-door prospecting as a cornerstone of their sales process.

And with solid data now showing that you have 7 seconds (or less!) to make a first impression, it’s critical to be aware of the message you’re sending once that prospective client opens the door. So as the solar high season winds down and you prepare to hit the pavement to close those last few deals, here are a few simple ways your body language might help you earn trust and seal the deal.

Top 3 tactics to generate free solar leads

Topics: Solar Sales, Solar Proposal, Video, Solar Leads

Every business needs customers

If you are not interested in buying leads or there aren't any available in your area, you can be stuck. In this case, you'll have to figure out how to generate your own leads.

The top 3 ways to get organic leads

1. Going door-to-door (canvassing)

This is the simplest form of finding organic leads. Pick a street, walk down and knock on every single door, asking if they are interested in what you're selling. Your success rate will probably be low, but this is a great way not only to hone your salesmanship, but to find a few potential buyers.

2. Cold-calling

Another classic sales tactic, cold calling is exactly what it sounds like. Go to a site like 411.com, searchaddresses and start calling! Again, you're not likely to have a high percentage of interested customers with this method, but with any luck you will find a few potential customers to start working on.

3. Use an efficient Solar Sales tool

Our favorite way to find organic leads is by using a good sales tool. Open Google Maps. Pick a street in your area, and identify the houses facing south. Use street view to find the addresses, and enter that information into a reverse look up engine to acquire contact information - Peoplesmart.com and Whitepages.com are good options.
