So Spring is around the corner where I live. It’s getting warmer and brighter so it’s time to market and book some jobs. This is going to be my first year in the business. I know window cleaning very well since I’ve been working in New York for roughly the past 5 years. I know it really well, I would consider myself close to an expert. I know it from the employees side but not the owners side so this will be my first year.
I’m 21 and still go to college but I also want to build a business and be an entrepreneur. That’s where I ultimately want to go. My question boils down to the “Spring Special.” I want to distribute Flyers next week at the start of April 2. I am leaning on going door to door with flyers that I will make today and offer my services. Basically go to 100 houses on Monday - Friday. So 500 flyers in total throughout the week. Ring on the doorbell and talk to the owner / owners and sell myself. I have a somewhat general understanding of sales because I booked 2 storefront jobs and some other jobs I might have so I feel like this would be a great lesson to learn in sales.
Has anyone done this before? Going door to door and selling your window cleaning services? Talking (selling) and then handing them out your flyer? I have time because I’m in the beginning stages so I feel that I can bang out 100 houses a day and then repeat in 3 weeks time to other towns. My mom gave me this idea funny enough and said “you’re still young so they might be more likely to book a job with you.”
Also, any tips on what to include in the Flyers?
