First Solo Locating Tomorrow!

3 posts in this topic

Tomorrow morning, I am going on my first attempt at locating solo. The location is a restaurant that caters to family, lots of family seating and kid's meals, etc. The intent is for this machine to be a charity machine that donates to a local non profit that provides lots of great services to the community for free or super cheap (shelter, free bus line, section 8 housing, etc.). 

I've read all I can, and even done some practicing, but I would love any extra advice you guys can give me!

I usually hear about 80% of locations say that the owner or manager capable of making that decision  is not in right now.  I also for the same reason have to go to at least 10 places for every 1 that does get placed.   

My advice that has worked for me is;

  • Diversify your locating; do some in person, on the phone, with a locator, and best and easiest way is always be looking for established routes for sell.
  • Also don't get discouraged, if they say no go on to the next place and keep a positive attitude.  Attitude when locating makes a big difference.  If you look burnt out of locating it will show and get you less locations.  
  • Also try to go for places local and less likely to give you the we need corporate approval excuse. 
  • Lastly for now try to ask if you do score a location if they have any other locations that may be interested.
