    I really dont get it, had two recommendations ( I like it here because your all nice)so somebody runs a two page thread about telesales and then ends up saying, no worries ill go and knock doors and wait for the decision maker (which 50% of the time will not get, due to appointment only, out to lunch, in a meeting) jeeeeezzzzz................. 90% you will not get a decision maker to see you - you can hit lucky sometimes, but it has to planned and strategic, Im off to take some lavender lol

    Its really weird, they post and then dont follow anyones advice, you give them the answer - and then go of on a tangent. Ive beeen getting commercial leads for nearly three years, so you advise and nobody seems to do much, even though they have asked the original question - very ODD

    Damo I think its a mixture of things, you get people on the site asking for this and that, and then dont adhere or do anything based on advice that you give them, its read and ignore. So how do I get commercial work " erm get on the phone" nobody does, and then you get a thread about how do I get commercial work? It really annoys me, so much now Im thinking about dropping the industry..........Know it sounds mean but I cant work with people who are not prepared to try something new, been in this game for 23 years now - you give answers and try and help ..... but nobody listens. An old client of mine obtained a database from me and picked up a 2,600 job a year on his on merit by doing some calls... towel in soon mate I think

    That's not good :(

    Problem is Commercial WC is horrible now.

    We DID very little and what we did we soon lost!

    I did a place for £40 once a month for 10+ years.

    Someone came in at £35 and we got sacked!

    I Am interested in Domestic and Semi Deep cleans. More money and more interesting
