Weekend Canvassing

Posted by tacleaning (T. A. Cleaning), 1 March 2004
Well, what a weekend  Shocked

Myself and my brother have been setting up a window cleaning business over the past few months, we are both due to leave our regular jobs at the end of March to work at window cleaning full-time.

Went out canvassing on Saturday evening... Picked up 325 worth of new business... I'm not joking! We picked up some really big houses, charging 35+

Then, on Sunday I went out canvassing on my own, and picked up another 184 worth of business.

Looks like we've picked a good area this time  Smiley

Well done! That's impressive. It's all down to finding the right area.

Thanks guys.

Yep, just knocked on the doors and gave them a card. Asked them if they had a WC, they didn't so I offered our services and they said yes.
