    But... I've been offering a free clean to any of my custies if they get me more clients. One rang me this morning and said her nephew needs a windy. I quoted it at £15. The good bit is it's 2 minutes from me and they said no one cleans in their road. Canvassing on the horizon me thinks!

    Because there's a firm that's got the area sewn up, or maybe not. I've never really thought about working so close to home. Maybe I should :)

    Most times I've had a customer say that there's no window cleaners in their street, I've had to go no further than two houses in either direction to find out they were wrong.

    People are very lazy when it comes to finding a window cleaner which is why canvassing is so good for picking up new business.
