How Long Does It Take To Build A Round Of 200 Domestic Customers



Recommended Posts

Thing with posting leaflets through doors with for sale/sold signs is, they are going to have 100s of leaflets behind the door and I'd imagine they would all be gathered up and put in the recycle box?

 

I wasted a few years posting flyers and waiting for my phone to ring. To build a good compact round door knocking is the way to go. Either do it yourself, or pay someone to do it for you

Its interesting reading all of this you must knock on doors and i will give it ago then either this weekend or next and report back and hopefully eat humble pie.

Also to thread starter sorry for hijacking thread but it is to waht your interestred in and its better to hear hard stories than oh its so easy stories like most seem to be on here.

 

What is interesting i have never ever had a windy knock on our door in 20 years of living here and there good house to do ????.But not had many leaflets also prob 3 in 20 years.But there are alot of windys in this area.You guys seem to talk as though every street you go on you gain a customer i would like to see you do that in the mansfield area as im sure this area is a lot harder to canvass than the ones your doing.

 

when you go door knocking do you do it at weekends or during week at night or just when you feel like it.

 

I havent gone knocking because i know how i feel when its any type of sales person knocking on our door...........guttering sales and double glazing and driveways being the biggest pains in the butt.

 

I was told by windy in our area who has been doing it for 15 years it wil ltake 18 months to get your round how you like it and enough customers you guys are making out its doable in 2 months and i just dont agree with this.Your in some wonderfull areas you must be !!.

Get yourself a carpet machine too... Great for when the weather turns out bad... I have at least two carpet jobs booked in each week. That alone (average) brings in an extra £160 per week.

 

I have not got the time to go out door knocking so I'm paying a team of canvassers to bring me an extra £3000 worth of work per month. Getting up to the 200 peeps mark depends on your location, and how many window cleaners are in your area. It took me 7 months to reach 230 people. That was like 3 years ago... more window cleaners sniffing around now. Saying that they don't last long once the winter comes. They don't come back again. When it comes to Feb/March time i get a lot of calls saying there window cleaner hasn't been for a long time. Hoping to get another van on the road in spring of this next year.

I have knocked 60 doors on a street and not got any, done it on plenty of streets. Maybe do a search in your local estate agent/ property site and search for new developments/builds. I have been at it 5 years, could be better but I'm happy enough at the mo. I agree it is a lot harder now a days to build good tight work as there are windys popping up everywhere. Maybe over the winter would be a good time to start canvassing as a lot of part timers only work in summer.

Have got someone to help me a few days a week, but most of the round I will be able to clean myself. It will be an add on to my round that I have at the moment.
