    Hi people i set up a round about six years ago with a guy that was a window cleaner, im a door canvasser/salesman i own a double glazing company at the moment, getting the work is easy but i find it so stressful baby sitting fitters and the rest of the bullshit that goes with it!
    anyway back to the window cleaning round years ago i built up a 90 house round in the first week charging around £1 a window but ended up getting roped into cleaning the windows as i felt guilty that i wasnt getting my hands dirty and they were all first clean and like a prat i said i would do the frames for free on the first clean wich took forever and it went **** up...... anyway now my plan is to pay on a self employed pay per clean basis ive got a couple of lads with a bit of experience.

    it might help others who canvass to use a knock sheet ive attached one that you should be able to print off its best to knock in the day and then go back round in the evenings (when you have the time) so you catch everyone and just mark off the ones you have spoken to, otherwise i find you can spend a couple of hours on an estate and think youve done it when in reality you have only spoken to 20% of the people.

    i knock and have done for 15 years for double glazing and you only get one person with the hump every evening but it just makes me chuckkle, people really seem to respect the fact that you are getting off your **** and finding the work..

    anyways my first post is getting a bit longwinded now, but i will come on every night and post how many new jobs i pick up and im sure i will be looking for a bit of advice and if i can help in any way on the marketing front give me a shout

    Hey, welcome to the forum, sounds like your doing well. Take it that knock sheet relates to the house numbers in a street? If so where is house numbers 1-4?

    Would suggest to add name and comments box and reduce the number of houses per page might work a bit better.

    What do you think lads?

    hi smurf, this ones not for listing jobs it really just to show who you are speaking to, and have another sheet with your jobs on obviously you can mark your existing work with a £ sign or summin
