    thats a good evenings graft :p
    i havent canvassed for 3 years as i find the customers always want a deal?
    i have been heavily reliant on word of mouth, or new doors on the road.
    when a customers aproaches you the price is always a good one.
    also, when a customer says i had a window cleaner before but he never turned up :)
    thats the cue to ask how much he charged? then say arghhhhhh thats why :)
    and hike it up a few quid more

    Good work mate!

    What's been your opening line? Mine is "Sorry to bother you but a week ago i hand delivered a leaflet here which you probably put straight in the bin as i would have done the same however i'm a local window cleaner, just starting out and can offer you a good, reliable service that might even be cheaper than your current cleaner"

    I think we get about 10 seconds before they lose interest :)

    I think I'd get tongue tied a bit saying all that in ten seconds lol. But you are right I think.

    I heard it was 15 seconds but either way you don't have much time to get across your initial pitch. The leaflet follow up is a good idea though.
