My Canvassing Story: I Want £2000 P/m In 4 Weeks?!?!



Recommended Posts

steele

My goal is to get as close to £2000 worth of work in the next 4 weeks on canvassing. Can it be done?? :Image11:

 

I did design a flyer but decided against spending that money until I have a few custys and thought I could just print off something simple, so this Is was I used:

It was a hot Saturday (30c +) so I dressed as smartly as I could in shorts and a shirt and got to work on my street which in mostly small maisonettes and 2/3 bed houses.

 

Today I gained 10 new customers in 3 hrs, this included a stop at a pub for a refreshing cider :Image3:

 

5 - 4 weekly

5 - 8 weekly

 

All on the same street for total of £67

 

Will go out again tomorrow!

On your own you might struggle but a realistic target, 10-2 mon to fri 4-8 mon to fri Sat and Sun 10-2 good luck. On your flyer I would put your home address, and I would also have we are coming in the next 2 weeks as creates urgency.

Thanks for the tips, I'll make those changes on my next print outs.

 

Are those recommended times 10-2pm etc. I'm hoping to do most of my canvassing in the evening and do the work in the day.

Fantastic result!!! Coincidentally I am sat in the pub tryingtoforce myself to go out knocking and I haveyears worth of experience canvassing.The first knock of the day is 10 times harder thanthe rest.I am starting a W.C. round like yourself having been involved with gutter cleaning previously and still am.It is a very nice add on to your business I have done it fairly succcessfully for quite along time - if you want a chat aboutit I cantell you my script, how I overcome the few objections and how I price it- you are down south you can probably charge alot morethan me ;) Best of luck whatever you do and a greatmotivator I find is if you work out what each customer is worth over 5 years for example eg a £67 DAY LIKE YOU have just done is worth approx £ 4000 -CALLS FOR TREBLE CIDERS allround!!!! Sorry aboutcaps bad typist regards Nick 0781 6600540if you fancy a chat might be interesting swapping ideas

Im going to be more realistic and say im aiming for an extra £1000 per 4 weekly in the next 4 weeks .

Im going to book a holiday in a few weeks time with a 1k deposit and this will motivate me to work towards

My goals .

1 hot hour canvassing, the first 30 mins was very frustrating but my luck changed and i'm no longer offering 8 weekly unless they ask.

 

4 jobs = £42 per month

 

Time to watch some Tour de France and go back out later

Popped out for another hour canvassing the local area.

 

2 jobs = £21 per month

 

Total so far = £103 per month @ a total of 5hrs canvassing that's about £20 per hour canvassing. Not bad but I can do better :Image15:

Only did 30mins canvassing today but picked up a £70 conny roof and gutter clean + a regular £16 4 weekly.

Got a few 1st cleans booked in for a landlord who may have more properties to throw my way.

Got some regular work via the website at another £30 pm

 

oh, and best bit of work today was getting two tyres fitted and balanced for free (£40 labour) at ATS by offering to clean their windows. They said come back anytime I need something doing. :Image3:

Got back off holiday and have been out for 3 hours in the last 3 days. PIcked up 11 jobs bringing in about £150 pm. Don't think I'll be getting to my £2000 target but maybe half way.
