    We all know that door knocking is the best way to get customers no doubt, but leaflets also get you customers but not many as you get from door knocking

    A few people drop leaflets and they expect more jobs then u actually get.

    The main thing about leafletting is the area, Its either going to be hit or miss. If you hit then you will gain a few good customers and if you miss then hard luck !

    I dropped a few leaflets in a area months back... and the area had a local window cleaenr their... now i had 2 calls from 2 people saying the window cleaner has packed in... they still got my leaflet ! so now i know the cleaner has packed in... i can go and door knock and i can expect a positive outcome. I would of had more calls from more people but i havent becasue most people have binned the leaflets... but the older people tend to keep the leaflet for future use.

    ^^^ Thats how leaflets mainly work ^^^ - Most people will call you because they have been let down by the other window cleaner

    A few people say u gain better customers from leaflets then door knocking.... It is different with everyone at the end of the day

    Dropping 100-200 leaflets per week is good as it will bring in a few customers steadily along the way

    I will be door knocking this weekend hopefully trying to gain more customers as i need 400 customers before november 10th ( 18 months since i started ) Currently on 337

    The more customers u get that more harder it is to build up your customer base
