I'm wishing to start a small window cleaning business (at first), I plan to use a water fed system either backpack or trolley setup. The majority of the work I look to secure is going to be 2 story residential properties in the Blackpool and Wyre areas (give me the heads up if this is any of your patch and I can work around your areas). I'm trying to get a concise kit list and business needs before starting, so my thoughts are:
- LTD company and bank account
- Public liability insurance
- Risk assessment
- Logo uniform
- Equipment - Carbon telescopic pole (25ft Gardiner SLX), Ultimate sill brush, 20 m of hose (which quick release connectors do you recommend), 150 GPD RODI unit at home into an IBC container, sump pump & 25l container for pure water top up for the backpack/trolley. Can you think of any other equipment essentials?
Didn't want to jump straight into a van system without proving I could get the custom first.
The bit I'm stuck on is marketing, what have the public found most interest in which converted to customers?
Are there an tips on closing a sale?
Any tips at all are appreciated!
