    Anyone on here have a step by step guide to lingo when you go door knocking?
    What's the things you say to showcase your company against other windies & what do you avoid mentioning?
    What works?

    Knock door and ask do you need a window cleaner
    Simples
    Then just chat
    I sometimes turn no's into yeses just being myself

    Hi my names luc nice to meet you I am the local window cleaner, I would like to give you a price to have not only your windows cleaned but also the plastic frames, doors and sills.

    It's worked for me. Nice and simple and to the point.

    Never EVER slag off the competition, it reflects poorly on your character.

    Knock door -
    "Hello, sorry to bother you, just wondering if you have a window cleaner?"

    - no

    "Would you like one ? (In a jokey tone and cheeky smile)

    - no
    "Ok no probs, can I give you this leaflet of other services I offer"

    Hand it to them saying about gutters connys pressure watching etc. sometimes they may be interested in other stuff which will get you a foot into the door and even a job, an usual get them as a customer for windows too ;-)

    If they say yes to wanting windows done arrange date and go round and do them, after you done the job and collecting payment, that's when you give the above other services pitch. Don't do it on same day as they agree to windows as seems too pushy ;-)

    Hope this helps, works for me
