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.

perhaps he will not find it so distasteful if he does it himself for a month.
if i would have listened to you about a year ago i would have never of done canvassing but i'm here to tell ya i'm glad i didn't listen to ya !
just my opionon tho, but i do see alot of people or companies on here that have done still do it and will always do and they seem to be doing pretty good in these so called economic times.
just my two cents worth!:whistling
