Hey all, I started my business about 6-7 weeks ago. I posted the other day about mass leafleting and it seems to have worked a treat, what I have been doing is pricing a job, cleaning it and then saying "Mrs Jones, I'm glad your happy with my level of service. Do you think any of your neighbors would be interested?" to which they tend to grab me by the slieve and march me round their neighbors houses, try it! The last two days though have been something else. I've got an escort van with a 250 litre system and now I'm finding I have to fill up at home half way through my day. So I started thinking about getting a bigger van with a 650 litre system. I thought if I sold my van and used a bit of money I could get a bigger van. What also dawned on me is a friend of my who is a fantastic window cleaner is out of work at the moment and I was thinking if I put him in my van and bought a second then I could build another full workload but this time I was thinking of going after commercial work. So I just wondered what the best way would be to approach commercial work. I've tried going into reception but the receptionist basically says they don't know and if I phone I end up with the same receptionist. Is there any other ways to get in touch with local businesses. I have noticed a big office block that I'd like and also a local hotel which is massive and part of a chain but they don't have a window cleaner. How could I approach these. I'd love to send them all at least just a quote?
