    I would like to know what you lads say when knocking doors, and do you find it hard?

    Say

    Hi there, have you got a window cleaner? if they say no, say, would you like a window cleaner? if they say yes, say how much you would charge.

    Something along those lines I guess =)

    I was walking from the shops today and noticed that every house in a particular road had: "We do not buy from cold callers", stickers in their windows!
    So would you still bother to knock the door to ask for business or just jog on by to another street?

    same here. I've asked existing customers who have those stickers up and they say wouldn't have problem with windys calling, they say how else would you get a window cleaner! as above they view those stickers for 'proper salesmen'!

    we canvass while wearing uniform, looks more professional, and we (ok my wife does) says : I'm calling from as window cleaning, were currently expanding our round in the area, would you be interested in having your windows cleaned regularly?

    helps if smile and look less threatening!
