I started with craigslist, moved on to fliers, and then door hangers. None of that crap helped build my company like walking door to door has. In fact, I am going out again today. Last fall I picked up 35 plowing accounts in about 4 days walking door to door. That led to a plow route that consisted of 2 neighborhoods. 22 in one neighborhood alone.

I have sold door to door for other stuff before. I have sold knives, steaks and vacuums d2d, so if I can sell that garbage, I can really sell service!

I would agree though, that it isn't for everyone. Honestly, if you are a guy missing teeth and scruffy, your results may not be as great. Then again, I could be wrong about that.

If you have good material and can talk to people, go for it. If you have a hard time relating to people, or get nervous easily, then it's probably not for you.

The way I look at it is, they have my money in their pocket; I just have to figure out how to make them willingly give it to me.
