If they are a 100 answers at least 40 well priced jobs, what about you ?

Weve had less than 10 out of 100 people spoke to so far, maybe closer to 5.

 

Had better response from leafletting when weve tried that, cover larger area and getting a few calls and customers from that.

 

Depends on area, if not getting response move on to somewhere else and try there. Some areas are just swamped already and even though you will pick up the odd one or two, will get a poorer response overall.

As you say: "up for grabs", lets hope that no other windies are thinking the same thing - Windy wars ! - with local meat- head

I wouldn't say I am your local window cleaner, cause if you happen to knock another windies door they wont like it, its kind of like saying its my area.

 

I would just say "I clean some of your neighbours in the area, are you interested in a quote?".

 

When I first started I got a much better response from flyers, but these days they just don't seem to be as good as they used to be. So I just stick to door knocking. Flyers are ok. I used to get about 1 or 2 for every 100 flyers. Went out knocking with one of my boys a couple of weeks ago and we picked up about 15 new customers in two hours, just over a couple of streets. The following week we did the same, and picked up about 3 in 2 hours :-(.

It good you are out there trying to pick up new work,I think you would struggle just dropping a business card through the doo,the info on it is very limited and there is no call to action on them,leaflets would do a better job if you are just posting,a basic leaflet would maybe get you 1% call rate,if you design it well and you should recieve around a 3-4% call rate.

 

Business cards do work but on a more face to face level,for instance just knock a door and say im just dropping my business cards in this area then go into your pitch,the important thing is cusomers love to see the price or be told about the cost.

 

Knocking can be very hard but the way i overcome it is to picture a £20 note on the door.

i found leaflets far to expensive and i think people throw them away like takeaway menus cards are different and catch peoples eyes and they keep them/pin them up on the fridge or boards ect.

 

i can fit some good words in on a card its just knowing what to put ive gained all my houses by card not one knock at the door.
