Hire a Canvassor?

I do seamless gutters and was wondering if I should be hiring people to canvass for me instead of door knocking.

How much should I pay per lead or appointment?

I would say my average job is $800-$1200 with a 45% profit margin.

But I think I am going to make them stay in area's with bigger homes. So my per lead costs is worth it.

I was thinking $25 per appointment? I like the idea of a appointment. I would close 1 in 3 which would mean each is costing me $75.00. Does that seem right?

Will I find somebody to work for this. I know at $25 an appointment I could make $150.00 a day easy.

I really would like to stay away from hourly if at all possible.

Knock-Knock Who's There?

I seen your other post and I would keep doing it yourself for 1 month. The reason? Educate yourself first. After 1 month you will have learned it all and heard it all.

Then I would hire one person to work a neighborhood with you. Then once that person is a master at it then hire one to work with him or her. I would think a women would be great for this.

You also need to keep them motivated, and that is done with MONEY! Do not be afraid to pay for performance.

Plus start them out around an existing job you are doing. This makes it easier to start. Plus they can see you are a real company because they see your truck and your installing gutter.

Do not turn this into rocket science keep the KISS effect.

Good luck.
