    What's the best method for getting new work. . Have tried the canvassing route but found people are out a lot. Have had reasonable success with flyers thru doors but not getting work that quickly. Any advice on other methods. Have tried ad in paper but no joy.

    Time is your friend in this game, unless you just buy a round or pay a canvasser.

    Hi Smurfey , yeah have put a free clean on the flyers if regular clean booked. It works ok. Canvassing is what everyone recommends. Maybe I need to go out in the evening. After 6 ish

    Would be interested in buying some work but nothing about in my area. Just gotta keep plugging away and brush up on the doorstep charm I guess.

    1st clean discounts, freebies and whatnot seem like just a great way to attract the ones that just want a clean every five years (...but the want to pay the same price as a monthly custy).
