While going door to door nobody seemed interested even the people who have let their grass grow all summer. Maybe just a bad day?
Get used to failing with door to door. The percentages are not in your favor. Call people you already know and see if they need work done. Then adk them if they know anybody that needs work done. Also use what customers you have to see if they have work or know someone that needs work done. This industry is more word of mouth advertising. We probably pick up 50 percent of our customers from our current clients referring us to friends. Start there before going door to door.
