    I got through door knocking :)

    i got 170 customers and i just counted how many i gained through door knocking.... i onl

    All the rest of the customers i got by word of mouth people seeing me cleaning etc :)

    I got 84 customers from door knocking only....

    and the other 86 have came through recommendations and my website and flyers etc ! :)

    so my round is built from door knocking and word of mouth together :)

    I would say that i pick most of my customers up when they see me cleaning :) Especially in the last few weeks :) Last week i picked up 4 customers in 3 days which is very good

    HOW ABOUT EVERYONE ELSE ?

    Lets see how your round has been built ?

    only takes a few mintues to count... just count how many customers u got through door knocking and then take that away from your total customer count :)

    Well I don't keep a record of how my customers are gained to b honest. Too busy worrying if my turnover is enough to keep a roof over my head!

    But I would say my results are mostly thru me pushing for them for the job. I.e. customers I've canvassed face-to-face or dropped leaflets and canvassed. I just get the odd customer calling from leaflets/cards/Internet advertising by comparison.

    Do you guys only count 4 weekly customers in your head count, as it seems an irelavent figure to keep track of if its mixed 4/8/12 week/1 offs?

    i gained about 70% of my work from this http://www.postaladvertisers.co.uk/ cost me 84 quid a month but look at all the homes it went to. i find a magazine like this is better than fliers tbh. oaps sit down in the afternoon and look at them for something to do. they see my ad and call me. ill put another ad in this around march april then again july and then last one in aug. my facebook page has gained a few customers aswell.

    the way i do it is i go by monthly wage but if someone is on 12 weekly ill divide there income by 3, so 30 quid job would be 10 a month. seems to work for me. most my customers are more 4 weekly and i have 1 who is 6 and im converting them to 8.
