Door-to-door canvassing, door step campaigns and social marketing

Doorstep marketing or canvassing is a process that involves face to face conversations your householders at their homes to communicate key messages, promote activity or obtain customer feedback.

It can be used to raise awareness or obtain feedback on community or public service issues (such as recycling, waste or other services), encourage action by householders (such as increasing recycling rates, raising participation, improving compliance or promoting new services) and providing targeted information or answers to local householders.

Exodus Research has developed a doorstep canvassing service to meet the demand of local authorities for cost-effective social campaigning using highly motivated and trained staff to communicate with local residents. Our staff have experience with other environmental or public service campaigns (either as social marketers or researchers) and are pleasant and knowledgeable in communicating your messages and encouraging action on a wide range of issues.

Our canvassers are fully supervised and are always fully trained to ensure complete knowledge about your campaign and issues in your area. They act to maintain and promote your corporate image and reputation.  We are just the sort of people that you would like to answer your door to; polite, caring and engaging but able to be focused and deliver effective campaigns by face to face contact.

All uniforms, equipment, supervision and the management of health and safety issues are provided by experienced Exodus staff so we are ready to start on time and with no additional worries for you as a client. Our project manager will provide continuous service and reporting to you during the planning, delivery and execution of the campaign.
