USAID Transform WASH recognized the effectiveness of door-to-door promotion and installation services over selling sanitation products at a fixed location. The team developed low-cost toilet upgrading options to be offered by local masons. Collaborating with the sales consulting firm Whitten & Roy Partnership, the project trained the local masons and business facilitators on a new sales and sales management approach, DQ Selling®, to optimize door-to-door sales. The DQ Selling® approach aims to improve the sales performance by enhancing customers' ability to make well-informed decisions. This learning note provides an overview of this sales and sales management approach, detailing the implementation and the results achieved in improving sanitation in rural Ethiopia.
