    So I put an add on Gumtree looking for a canvasser yesterday, I just got a reply someone interested.

    I already stated that I would pay 1 x per clean for every house they got (tight I know)

    My other service would be commission based pay, Whats the going rate / reasonable rate?

    The agreed rate is 1 x per clean. Im not changing it now. You do realise adding 5 on top per hours is suicide? There is no guarantee you going to get a return on your money lol.

    Whats the % for other services like gutter cleans and pressure washing etc. I see another add on gumtree (different line of work) at 30%

    At the end of the day theres a lot of people out there looking for work its an employers market at the moment .

    If you say you would pay £5 an hr H and 1x clean il come work for you now .
    Guaranteed id be earning more than you .

    I got my nephew going to get me leads hopefully ive offered him %50 of first clean price
    For what ever he gets me anx hes happy with that .

    What happens on those days they dont get anything? Unless your with them there going to take the piss. All they need to do is go sit in a cafe' or a friends house and do nothing and still get paid for it.

    You have only based your assumption on them gaining work every time they go out, which we all know very well isnt the case.

    If you have the time and money its worth taking a rookie on, just be aware that if your paying 50% or 100% you may end up having to re canvass the work and its difficult to keep a good canvasser when they are not earning decent money.

    You may even find yourself having to get a new canvasser a month, the average life span for a door to door guy is 21 days

    If you want it done properly and stress free, give me a shout.
