Door to Door

Postby cookiejoe » Tue, 03 Oct 2006 10:27 pm

I am planning to get some students to do door to door selling of a product.
1 item cost ard $6-$8each and will be giving $2-$3each as comm.

Anyway my questions are:-
Is door to door selling illegal in Singapore?
How can i attract students to do for me?
Any suggestions on what type of people will be willing to sell for me other than students?

Cheers.

I don't believe that Chinese are into door to door selling, why else are they surrounded, with bars on the windows and doors. Pretty pointless also if the household is working a 10 or 12 hr day.

Probably only find the maid and elderly parents at home, I think this door to door selling may infringe peoples right to privacy and the police maybe called.

Not only that, I cannot imagine anyone slaving away, banging on doors, when the odds of seeing more people on the street in Bugis or Raffles Place is much better.

You should do your home work a little better, even the dumb and blind, seem to be more creative, walking around the hawker centres.

Maybe you could try that!

Don't come to my door. Years ago I lived two blocks away from a Jehovah's witness church. About every six weeks they hatched a new brood of people who would bang on my door on Sunday morning, trying to save my eternally lost soul.

One morning, two ladies appeared with their Watchtower magazines. I answered the door in my splendid nakedness. It was the shorest come to Jesus speech ever... although I do believe one of the women kept peeking.
