    Is there certain timings to Canvassings? Like say between the hours of 9am - 6pm?

    I know people work in day so you would have to go after hours i.e after 5pm? But you dont want to knock to late, as some people may be a little upset if you know say after 8pm.

    What timing/days do you Canvass?

    canvas whenever you can, you still get plenty of people in during the day, housewives/husbands, elderly, shift workers, nightworkers, disabled, all potential customers, sometimes i will go and canvass for 2/3 hours during the day, then pop back between 5-6:30 and have another go

    Try to leave knocking doors on weekends till about 4ish and go till about 6, bit earlier on sundays. People are generally out during the day and they're watching Britain come dancing on ice super star rrock star xfactor show and having a chill. Plus you got to have your own time as well dude, Although we are trying to grow and quick as we can, you soon loose motivation if its all you do. I've been in sales for ten years and canvassed thousands and thousands of doors. You need your down time more then you think.
