    Green pro clean padman and adamangler you have had your own Canvasser's out there is it just slow now not getting anyone. My guy has done a 3 and a 2 hour stint not one customer he used to canvass before but not window cleaning,apparently. I'm beginning to think this guy couldn't sell water to a dying millionair in the desert. Any one's thoughts Please

    It's slow at the minute for sure. I've been on Facebook a lot also and had nothing.

    Last time I tried a canvasser was week before Christmas and we got 2 in 2 hours. He ended up getting a full time job so didn't do it again. I've got 2 potential canvassers lined up to try next week so will see how that goes. I'm also advertising for a leafleter on minimum wage to see how goes and I have a lad lined up for next week doing that. Also speaking to a guy off gumtree who charges 2x and guarantees 2 cleans apparently so might give him a go in Feb.

    But yes it's slow atm. I reckon it will improve with some dryer weather as we move into Feb it's been a horrible couple of months weather wise. With the rain and floods

    I gave mine the bullet on the first day. He came stinking of cat pee. Told me he had 15 cats, also wanted some money up front, so I made an excuse and got rid. Christ I can pick em. So looking again now unfortunately

    Well done if you are doing well with FB - for me, so far it has been a complete waste of time. But I will keep posting in the buy & sell groups for a while yet to see if its just the time of year for inquires.

    Bloody hell. 100 groups? That must take ages.

    Facebook has been really good for me since Christmas. I've lost count of the number of new customers I've gained over the last couple of weeks. I've been leafletting loads too which has brought in a fair bit of work. My next step is to get some proper leaflets made up (rather than my DIY ones) and find a youngster to pay to deliver them for me.
