O.G.’s Notes: 100 Visits in 18 Days


Jim Yoder is one of my closest friends (since our days together at Notre Dame) and a former partner of The Suddes Group. Jim has been running/managing large campaigns for over 20 years.

When he was working on a $1.5M Campaign for Economic Development (over 5 years) in a small community in North Carolina:

He spent 3 DAYS …

EVERY OTHER WEEK …

FOR 3 MONTHS …

working on the Funding Initiative.

He made:

100 VISITS!!!

100 VISITS … 100 SHOULDER-TO-SHOULDER, FACE-TO-FACE, EYEBALLTO-EYEBALL PRESENTATIONS … IN JUST THOSE 18 DAYS!!!

Oh, and by the way, Jim had never met any of those prospects/potential investors personally before he made those visits … AND he Presented the Opportunity for them to make an investment (JUST ASK) in almost every single instance!

I told Jim that 100 visits in those 18 days was more than most Development Officers and Major Gift Officers Make in a year.

HOW MANY VISITS ARE YOU/YOUR ORG MAKING THIS WEEK???
