Im only 21 years old and ive always wanted to start up my own shop (conveniance store) But im only working part time 2 days a week at a taxi call centre company. But ive gathered its getting hard for me to save money and in my area their is not many empty shops available that would run well.... So ive looked at window cleaning and think its great in every way. I really think it would suit me I will be getting a estate astra van with a trolley system. The trolley system will contain a DI unit so my water will be purified of course Tthe system carries 25L I will also have 4 extra containers that i will carry in the van as well so i will always be stocked up I will be working from mon-fri 5 days a week. I think having a trolley system will be less hassle for me as i can just carry it around. Weight is not a problem to me. Im a pretty strong lad and enjoy carrying heavy stuff ! haha Once my business ticks over i will then look in to expanding my trolley system or even look in to a van system? I will have business cards and will send a lot out. I will put them in all local shops besides the counter and put signs up in all local stores across the area I will have my own facebook page ( I think this is essential to business in this day in age ) Also i will install my own website. And i will have my company name and my number on my van. I always am clean and i will make sure i make my van look clean at all times. I will do all the account work my self. I am also using the pole system So no ladders ! Lol I will have to get used to the pole... so i will just go out and do my familys windows for free for a few days or so I can see my business picking up after 2,3 months once ive done all the door to door work. I will try my best to be busy as possible during my 5 days of work. I I will also go door to door and i will never give up. I think i can provide a great service to all my clients. i will take a note of their name and their birth date. When its the birthday i will send them a birthday card saying happy birthday from your window cleaner haha I believe that to have a strong customer base you have to do things like this it earns you respect as well as getting you more work What do you all reckon ?
