    Knock on doors evety spare minute you have
    If it's during the working day and you don't have a job to do you need to be knocking not sitting at home
    Soon build it up

    I was only thinking this morning I haven't picked up many new ones this week. Went out and picked up 7 new cleans from one area. Was brilliant. They have seen me there now doing it for a few months and today decided to take the jump.
    All monthly apart from 1 who wants every other month.

    But In reply to the question. I have only been going six months now. I think there is a lot that goes into it. Website, leaflets, canvassing (I haven't done any still but that's because I hate door knocking) and presence. People see you out there any you do a good job they will ask

    Poles give these a go. They done mine and was top page within 2-3 months (not sure if that's good but I was happy and get quite a lot of enquiries)
    Price is really good as well

    No one method will get you all the work you want straight away. Drop leaflets, advertise, have a website (it needs to be up for at least a year to climb the rankings), talk to friends about the business, facebook, free ads, branding, getting out and working to be seen,......the list goes on. It takes time and persistance.
