    Its been about 3 months since I have done any carding or canvassing.

    I still get about 3 new customers a week but I was getting about 6 - 10 so I think I need to get out there and find some more work. The only thing that was stopping me was the fact that I only have 3 days a week to clean, and less hours in winter and this has caused a backlog.

    But I think this is the best time to start canvassing, when do the lazy window cleaners give up for winter and go back on dole?

    Not sure if you are being serious H, but 500 is a lot of customers. There is no way I could cope with that many. I have about 240 now and thats enough for me (even though I have taken 5 more this week ,,lol)

    i agree.....I have quite a few big houses. It pays well and there is no flitting from house to house, packing up your equipment and getting it out again. Also to be able to do 30 custies in a day, surely you need them all virtually side by side, or at least on the same street.......a luxury you dont get when you are first starting out. Your customers tend to be more scattered.
