    A bunch of pensioners, 1 rang me up from giving a flyer to her daughter when she passed me and I was cleaning somewhere else. She got me a few more in her cul-de-sac and since then I've ended up with 14 houses down there. All priced well and everyone reliable payers, if ones not in another will pay for them so even better I never have to go collect.

    I have lots of £5 appartments, take 2-3 hours £100. Love that day as always come home with £100 in my pocket, Very rarely that happens.

    I'm same but then I still haven't canvassed anywhere yet, the old dears are definitely my best customers for lots of reasons.

    Best area of mine, is an area I had been doing for about 4 years, only had about 10 houses in 1 street... There is also about 6 or 7 other windys in the area, but at the start of 2012 I knocked the doors.. I now have over 90 across 6 streets

    You need to knock doors to compact your work.. I wasted years and lots of ££ for flyers, paper ads.. You Gota go look for the work, it won't always come looking for you.. I have scattered work too from when I started, have dumped £100s worth of work that I gained from flyers etc just because they ain't worth it.. But after Xmas I'm going to knock all our compact rounds to try get some new work to replace more of the scattered work..
