Being visited by salespeople at home can be an unnerving experience, particularly for the elderly and people living on their own. For others, having valuable time at home with family and friends interrupted by pushy salespeople is simply an unwelcome distraction.

But help is at hand!

The national Do Not Knock campaign, aims to put a stop to unwelcome, dishonest and intimidating door-to-door salespeople. The campaign was launched by the Consumer Action Law Centre and Financial Counselling Australia in October 2011.

The centrepiece of the campaign is the Do Not Knock sticker which, when displayed in a prominent location, sends a clear message to salespeople – ‘you’re not welcome at this address.’

Not surprisingly, the stickers have struck a chord with many communities around Australia –  so much so that we’ve lost count of how many print runs we’ve done.
