They already know you were there for the most part.
Not true. Most people work during the day and do not see you cleaning their neighbors carpet around my area.

5 arounds work good when consistently used. Sort of like a forced referral, if you did a good job for their neighbor they feel more comfortable calling you. Unless they hate their neighbor.

Do you think it would be good to ask the current customer? Meaning say something like "I usually put door hangers on the 5 surrounding houses. Would you mind if I did that and they were to ask you about your experience?"

I don't put the customers (where we cleaned) name or address on the 5 arounds. So I don't ask.

I have found that some people do not want their name attached to something, so anonymity is good.



How about the people that don't like their neighbors?
Those are thoughts as well. To be honest I will probably feel a couple people out. That's what I do when I want to change something up. Ask a few customers what they think. But you definitely bring up a valid point and something to consider

I spy a typo ;)
YA happens from time to time. I have a philosophy, get it as good as I can and fire it out the door. Haven't had 1 call telling me about the typo but I've scheduled 15 appts off that particular card and there's been 4200 put out. I'll take it
