well after a few poor attempts at canvassing i finally got over my fear of knocking doors and went pretty mental today, knocking every door in sight and putting the word out as much as possible . got alot more of this planned and found it ok actually. A few people told me not to bother as there are already window cleaners in the area but there are numerous cleaners everywhere these days so im not worried. i dont want to tread on toes so i did avoid houses with obviously clean windows. im no sales man but i think i did ok, have managed to get a few customers in week one so not bad. thanks to everyone who has responded to messages etc your support is extremely appreciated! should i be dis heartend by the presence of other cleaners in the area?
