  1. Hiya.

    Its good to be here as we are or have all been in the same boat at some time or we will be it feels!

    I am starting canvassing on Tuesday, I don't have any customers at all, got lots of business cards and was going to commit to door knocking between 4-8pm most evenings.

    I was thinking of turning up with a clip board with my business cards and I have already got a little badge printed with company logo

    Do you think I should go wearing black trousers and shirt and shoes or will casual clothes do it?

    I will be using traditional window cleaning methods, most are bungalows anyway but not all!

    I look forward to your advice


    Thanks


    Jamie

    Welcome Jamie, I think smart, casual and turning up with a clipboard and cards would set the right impression .

    Your second name isn't Stevens by any chance? I used to live in lanner now in redruth. Recently had to give up sadly.

    Why you have to give up Gav?

    Welcome to the forum mate,

    4pm isnt a good idea. because people still be at work...... people get home at about 17:15 some people get home at 16:45

    I canvass from 17:00 to 20:00 :)

    It works for me...

    On sundays u can canvass all day... i would recommend 14:00-20:00

    I canvassed today on sunday - i started from 4-8 and i picked up 16 regulars and 1 customer who wants a one off clean :p

    Just wear anything.... i just wear joggers... and a hooded top. Casual is fine.

    I have a notebook with me.... that i write informatiuon down on when i get a customer :)

    I have a load of business cards in my pocket.... to hand to the people that say no.... because they could change their mind :)

    Also...... when people are not in... just puta business card through the letterbox

    Good luck mate
