    After some review, they decided that simply asking a person if they wanted to buy a book made it too easy to say no. So, they added a stronger call to action atrepparttar end. And, they started going out in groups of two:

    "Hi, I'm Ben and I'mrepparttar 148620 author of 15 Reasons I Love My Dad. (Handrepparttar 148621 book torepparttar 148622 prospect.) It's a fill-in-the- blank book that lets children show their dad how much they love him."

    "And I'm Cassie. We're raising money to take a musical theater class. We're running a neighborhood special today. You can getrepparttar 148623 book for only $10 instead of $14.95. How many would you like to buy?"
