Door Canvasing

Posted by Scots_cleaner (Scots_cleaner), 3 February 2004
Hi Chaps,

Just had a canvasing chap at the door for dominos pizza
you buy a voucher for 20 and you can save up to 235 on food bought by 20th June this year.

I just wondered if anyone had done something like this on a smaller scale.

Hire a self employed canvaser to target 120 houses per day pay him the 10 per customer that signs up to a savings scheme or that places an order or requires an estimate.

This could be used for carpet cleaning , Domestic House or power washing driveways etc.

Just a thought would like some feed back.

Regards Barry.... Wink Smiley

We do tele canvassing working out at less than 10 per job but I pay 5 an hour plus bonus if we do well and i have arm twisted, plus drinks down pub team building etc.

Have done door knocking in fact hitting streets again from March as at present this is less restrictive on the legal front than telemarketing.

That is until those I dont like being disturbed lobby interfares and get a Euro Directive restricting Free Enterprise., and get of your bum go getters.



Most peoples incomes are dependent on someone selling or marketing a service or product.

I am proud to be in Marketing the most important job in the WOrld UNIVERSE  SOLAR SYSTEM

Without Enterprise we would have no medicine.
