  • when did you start window cleaning?
    2015
  1. I found mine on window cleaning rounds for sale .com or something like that! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  2. Facebook....

    Also I just checked and it's on our Facebook page. We have two pages one for our company name and one for Window Cleaning South Wales. I'll DM you a link Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  3. Facebook....

    It's a video I've posted to a group. Go onto the group "Cardiff Community Council" and you'll find it on there! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    It's a warm 17c in sunny South Wales! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    It looks like a Karcher pressure washer in one of the pictures Mr Green. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  6. Facebook....

    Video of cleaning gutters and competition if they share they get entered into our monthly prize draw for a free gutter clean. We run a prize draw every month, all you need to do is share one of our posts. Had probably 10-15 guttering jobs booked in off the back of this video. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  7. I've seen many comments on here regarding Facebook. Some see the benefits and also reap the rewards, others remain sceptical or have just not seen the rewards that can be had. Hopefully this will provide everyone with a bit more information as to how it works for me and hopefully help others out. Facebook is currently the biggest source of new work for my business and currently averaging around 10-20 new customers a week. For me personally I find that local buy/sell groups don't really work. Without being too derogatory they are full of people trying to get a bargain. Not the type of customer I am looking for. However what is great are local community groups, I take a more informative approach than a direct sales tactic. Just let them know you're there. Naturally if you already have a presence in that area you will get people commenting saying I use these they are great etc. I come from a marketing background and for Facebook posts on your Facebook page CONTENT IS KING! Post regularly but not everyday. Videos are a useful tool to grab people's attention and they don't need to be long or involve you speaking. Just show them what you're doing wether it be cleaning a window, gutter, whatever!! Become a source of local knowledge. Post information that may be relevant in your area and share other businesses you know and trusts page. If you know John the plumber is good well tell your customers. Hopefully he will return the favour. No matter how small an issue I post it. One of the main roads locally is a busy two lane road which is a 30mph however everyone travels a lot more than that. I saw a speed camera van which I hadn't seen there before so quickly posted it to my Facebook page to inform people. Within two hours it had 96 shares. This may not directly result in business but people will see your page and will remember you! Finally don't always boost posts or waste money. If used correctly boosting works however if your a virgin don't waste your money as you'll just loose out! See picture below of a post that I boosted for simply £1 but generated over 17,000 organic (not paid for) reaches. Finally if anyone has any questions just ask, I'm happy to help! This forum has certainly helped me out greatly in my business! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    If you're happy with that it's great mate especially to start with! Over time you'll gain confidence and experience. With both of those comes the ability to demand a higher price and also you'll be quicker and therefore your hourly rate will increase. Keep at it and you'll reap the rewards!

    I was thinking the same!! I sincerely hope your pricing is a lot more Luca or am I just ridiculously expensive?! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  10. I bought it at 1x which I know is a steal!! And two months in haven't lost any apart from two who didn't want WFP! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  11. I'm hoping I can help! My background was running a marketing agency. 1. Google Adwords used correctly 110% works! I use it only for window cleaning as that's all I've been looking for recently. If you choose your search terms etc carefully you can get a very low cost per click (CPC). When that happens you can afford to have people just browsing and then when you do get a genuine enquiry it'll be worth it. The items such as gutter cleans etc will have a higher CPC. In our area pressure washing is currently running at £3.95 per click. For us it's just not worth competing on that. 2. We currently spend somewhere between £90-£150 per month. Can't see why you would need to spend anymore! 3. I don't believe at all in various sites. Normally web guys will tell you yes because they make money from the hosting however in practice a good website with good content for various locations and services will do you better than lots of different ones! About 5 years ago things were different we had one customer who offered a nationwide professional service that had 364 separate websites all performing well. One day Google dropped them all and a month later the company was put through. I would just stick to one great site that shows off everything you do. Use your blog to attract different services and from different locations. 4. One website is all I have and it's all I'll ever need no matter how far we expand in terms of geographical location. Do you use Facebook? If not that's your biggest source of new customers your missing out on. In the last 24 hours I've had 12 new customers from one Facebook post. Happy to share proof and the post with you via DM. Any questions just ask away! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  12. I haven't put a price up yet! But I plan on just putting it up by £1. I'll do it face to face to explain the reason why! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  13. Yeh that's the plan!! Get them used to the way we work, used to our system, used to how they pay us! Then January 2018 used to the price rise [emoji23][emoji23] Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  14. No mate. Only did two first cleans free and that was for the two customers who I couldn't convince about WFP. I haven't put them up yet as I didn't want to cause too much change!! It's very compact so the price isn't too bad! I'll wait until next Jan to put prices up! In the process of getting them onto GoCardless atm as they all were cash before!! Got about 25% on GC and another 15% on Bank Transfer so I'm slowly getting there! Bought it extremely cheaply so it's already made back the cost! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
