    Hi all,

    I've recently lost my job and I'm hoping to start up a window cleaning round, I've been cleaning for friends and family for about a year now and i do enjoy it

    I am a little nervous canvassing but i have to do it, I'm sure once i knock a few ill be ok, I'm in no position at the moment to pay for for someone to canvass for me

    What days times would you start canvassing?

    Would you canvass on a Sunday?

    Cheers

    Evening are best buddy, between 6 and 8pm. Yeah Sundays are fine, but again I personally would keep it to the evenings.

    Might be an idea to get some vista print business cards and pop them through the ones you don't get in.

    Evenings 6-8

    You could canvass commercial during the day,

    I wouldn't canvass on a Sunday tho, a Saturday would be better if you can?

    Nervous is normal, regardless of the situation, if you haven't done it before you will be, natures way, just go for it, as above once you have done a few you will be flying. Motivation is the one to master in this game. ;)
