    Hi all my names dom currently starting out window cleaning (traditional) was wondering whether it is necessary to buy a round or not?? or whether knocking house to house introducing myself to drum up business would be sufficient

    Canvass and be confident when doing it, ie come across as knowing what you're doing.

    I've been going full time since March last year and I didn't buy a round so it's not necessary. In the early days most of my work came from Facebook advertising. I leaflet sometimes but I've never canvassed.

    be organized itll pay off
    work out an area youre going to doorknock or leaflet and write down the road names including any side roads on a notepad.
    tick each of these off as you do it. dont be half arsed about it, or for sure youll get half arsed results.

    Most people don't buy a round, they drum up their own business .
