    When canvassing say a Pub/Hotel do you:

    1- Go straight in, ask to talk to the manger?
    2- Do you drop off a leaflet and pop in there a few days later?
    3- Email them wait for a reply/pop in after a few days?
    4- Call them and talk to the manager?

    It doesn't have to be a pub/hotel, could be Car sales, Offices, Church, Schools, College, Police Station, garage, Shops etc etc

    What do you guys recon or what do you guys do?

    Always good and ask for manager and if they are not available you can leave leaflet for them then can call back another time to see them.

    i canvass retails shops like barbers/pharmacys/takeaways and i find that this really works good :)

    but when doing it to pubs etc then it can be much harder :p

    Do the commercials during the day as this is the only time the right management team to talk to is on duty. then do homes during late afternoon/evening

    Like H said some pubs can be a little tricky, some want it done dirt cheap and not worth it.

    Offer a quote, as this they can't turn away, if they do, tell them its free and ask them what they have to lose?
