    Never tried adwords for window cleaning.

    Thinking of getting a new website sorted and maybe run an adwords campaign to target some new areas.

    Im aware it has varying levels of success as ive used it before for other services

    but has anyone used it for window cleaning? and how did you get on?

    I tried it a few years ago.
    Depending on your area you need to be spending a lot to make it work.
    At the time my site was doing well but for the number of clicks the addwords wasn't paying for itself.

    I have about 6 websites boarcity

    3 i did myself with varying success.

    3 i had done by suffolk designs...reason being he first approached my a few years ago on a car valeting forum, i paid him 300 for the first site (car valeting one) which has brought me in thousands in return since.

    i then asked him to do me a window site, paid £100 and he did me a pressure washing site again £100

    i currently pay £10 per month hosting for all 3.

    the only one that brings in anything is the valeting site, the other 2 are stuck down on page 2/3
    my own window site does better but no way near enough.

    Adam, I used to have a car valeting website myself and did a deal with an SEO company who got me to number 1 on google for Glasgow.

    At one point we were getting about 4-5 calls a day with leads. All i had to do was clean their 3 cars once a month. I gained big time out of that. I left to chase the money and also because i noticed how quickly people were using the poles at a 5er a car. Between that and the weather in Scotland.

    Window cleaning i think is something most people would take a chance on if they see one in the street etc. Unless maybe target more commercial side of the business so it looks professional.

    I've found the same to be honest.

    Car valeting I'm getting at least 4-5 calls a week but the profit margins just art there.

    Windows I get maybe 1 a month if I'm lucky.
    You might be onto something with commercial though.

    It's all about seo
    You need to get that sorted to get on the 1st page and high up it
    I don't need a website personally as i get enough work but if you want more work a decent website with good seo will get you a constant stream of enquiries

    Yeh I know mate but it's also down to window cleaning being a much less searched term than valeting in my area. I'm on page 1 for both.
