Question: Why is getting in the door with prospects becoming harder?

Answer: Some people think it’s because business owners have less time than they used to. I think the real reason that bankers are having trouble arranging appointments is because they don’t realize that they are competing for the business owner’s time. And, for a prospect to give up his valuable time, he will need to get something of value from you.

How do you demonstrate possible value and get a prospect interested in talking to you?
