Default 152

Thanks Needhelp!

So I have trickled into 152 tonight. I thought I'd try my hand at campaigning at some local places and managed 3! It seemed a lot harder than I imagined, I think I need to work on my introduction and smile All three folks looked scared and suspicious of me but atleast they signed! Not giving up hope though! I have some others in the works via some good friends and I am going to try and tap more immigration law firms in SF. I am still pledging 200 and hope for more!! Any tips on campaigning to strangers, and I will be set! Thanks guys.

Have a good eve all.

Hi there,
My experience is people listen and sign only if they have time. They may not stop & listen at a train station, but they do outside grocery stores etc.
Good luck... and thanks!

Default simple things

-> Ask them for 30 seconds of time to make your pitch
-> 2nd line should be that you are not pitching amway or quixstar, no offense to folks who engage in these businesses but most people assume that you are trying to catch them for one of these and run away
-> You should have a quick two liner which states why you need your help. You can say that you are a legal immigrant trying to petition President Bush to help improve the life of LEGAL immigrants. You just need to get the person to put their name and address and sign at bottom.
-> If they show further interest quickly run through the 6 points on the letter
-> Make sure you take permission from people whose places you are campaigning outside and make sure those have a heavy flow of legal immigrants

Hope this helps. Your hit rate with good traffic should be at least 20/hr.
