Door to Door Sales??

I had a guy come to my house asking if I needed any work done... basement finished, deck built, kitchen remodeled... I got to talking to him, and he was just a dude walking house to house for 'Leads'. He was simply booking appointments for a contractor and said he would make up to 15% on any jobs landed.

Is this normal? Is it effective? Has anyone paid someone to go Door to Door like this?

I know teh door knockers who do pine straw spreading around Atlanta do very well (they mostly cheat home owners by charging for more bales than they actually put out though)
Also door knockers who pressure wash have done well there
