    I found flyers a waste of time 1 for every 100 I think knock door and face to face best and I definitely would not trust anyone to put through door

    Last two months I have moved away from flyers and canvassers and now just run an online advertising campagin.

    I worked out a budget of £240 per month and that more than brings in enough to cover itself and then some.

    I use similar technique to daveyboy wherever I am working i canvass or leaflet if no answer as many houses on road I'm working as I have time for. Building up nice compact areas for jobs.

    Green Pro Clean Ltd just wondered what advertising you to online to get to £240pm It's obviously working for ya.. I get plenty of Facebook just using free groups and some off free yell ad
    I know you have one of gavs web sites but I think the monthly cost is minimal. Interested to see what also you do online with the money as may try someof them

    1-2 responses to printed advertising is considered a good response in the advertising world. These days with less people using printed media (newspapers, magazines etc) the response average is considered to be good at 0.4%

    Online marketting is the way forward. Social media and building a database plus a network of people who refer you.

    It depends on your business I think if purely window cleaning then canvass there's no need to mess about doing anything else imo.

    These last few months I've been using d local magazine and google adwords to good effect. Window cleaning enquiries directly are not that high and canvassing or leafletting would produce faster but the way it works for me is I'm advertising half a dozen services so do a get a steady stream of enquiries for various things. This often leads to an opportunity to sell window cleaning to the customer or a neighbour to see you working. Drumming up a lot of activity in general and being out and about brings in enquiries. Any emails I am getting are put into the database and every job gets asked fir their email address to market to at a later date.

    For windows like I said it's not nesacary but if you offer multiple services its great.

    I'm currently doing away with sepetate websites and building one site for all services and look to drive all traffic to it.

    1 customer per 100 is an excellent return btw that's about 1 an hour. I've never had that return.
