    I have decided that because next week is my quiet week of the 5 weekly cycle i have that today is a day off the windows and canvassing from 10 - 4 instead
    Leaflets and door knocking
    Anyone else take days off to drum up new work?

    Hi daveyboy1, out of interest what's your usual conversion rate? E.g. 100 doors=5 leads etc?

    I couldn't put a figure on it as sometimes it's 1 or 2 jobs from a couple of hours canvassing sometimes it's like the other week when i knocked about 60 doors and got 8 new jobs
    Different every day

    I've found I get as many leads doing a few hours on a Saturday / Sunday as I would doing a full week day.

    I tend to leaflet during the day on weekdays and door knock in the evenings as a lot of people are out daytime
    And door knock weekends which are better
     
  9. Yeh, I've a quiet week next week, gonna drum up some more. Getting further and further from home though.
    I'm surprised that some of you canvass Sunday's? Wouldn't be appreciated round here.

    Why not?
    Sunday ceased being nothing but a normal day when they realised most people weren't religious and opened all the shops etc rather than the whole country coming to a standstill due to being a holy day
    I treat sundays as any normal day
    Surprising how many people like to have gutters etc done on a sunday
