Hello. I'm Brodie with Squid's Pressure Washing LLC. I know you're probably not in the market for an exterior cleaning service, but with your permission I'd like to walk around and see if there's anything I can do to help you love your outdoor space again.
(Shut up. Wait for answer.)
_A: Yeah. Sure. _
_Great! I'll knock again with a written estimate if that works for you. _
_A: Ok. Thanks. _
_6. Patio furniture. _
_7. Retaining wall. _
_8. Anything at all I could potentially clean. _
_I noticed a couple things that could use some TLC. Point it out on estimate. If you had to pick one thing on this list you'd like us to clean today what would it be? _
_A: Patio furniture (they almost always said patio furniture. It was the cheapest.) _
And if you had to pick a second to get a package discount what would it be?
_A: (Thinking..) It has been awhile since we cleaned the gutters. How much is the discount. _
$10, but if we clean 3 things today you get $25 off your overall invoice.
I had to knock on 10-20 doors typically, but I could get at least one job a day with my little Ryobi when I first started.
If their answer was "No.":
I understand completely. I appreciate the time. I'm going to leave this door hanger with you with a coupon for $20-$50 off depending on the invoice total should you think about it and give us a call. This is good for 1 week. (Write date on it in front of them. My first doorhangers had a white blank box that said above it Expires on:)
DISCLAIMER: I had to knock on a lot of doors. It's time consuming and it's no way to scale a business, but it is fine way to feed yourself early on. This script above is a modification of a script I was given when I first started in finance. I'm sure there are way better scripts out there.
