    or maybe half price instead ?

    no need to your a window cleaner not tescos

    i thought about a welcome pack to explain how wfp works and some FAQ in there and maby a pic or 2 for people who cant get my website

    but never got round to it and people just dont expect it.

    iv got a website now which explains 99% of my business to people which i can put on my flyers
    also for offers and stuff i will do these but 20% of first clean for monthly customers and have this on my banner on my website

    hi when doing domestic i always tell the customer if they can get me anymore houses normally 4-5 then i will do them a deal on their house (free clean or discount) & i also carry a4 paper printed with an introduction to Wfp & an easy to follow few notes on what to expect from this method of cleaning & the advantages & my mobile number should they think of anything else they need to ask, seems to put customer at ease when changing over from traditional

    I personally don't agree with giving free cleans etc. Taking up harunh suggestion for instance, if you've done the 4th/9th clean, next time round you are not going to be very motivated to do job. Believe me, it's sometimes hard enough when you know you are going to be paid!! You could end up working for days for nothing!!

    Value what you do, value yourself. If you are doing a good job you're customers will value you as well. You don't/shouldn't need to give it away.

    I know personally 15-20 window cleaners and I have never heard anyone discuss giving free cleans as a way of promoting their business and we are all doing well. It's a slippery slope - don't go down it.

    It's good to think about new things & good ways to get business...but in my experience, people just aren't that bothered nor do they expect it from their window cleaner.

    If you're reliable, do a good job, at a price they're happy with, I think those 3 things are what win and keep you customers.

    hiya windyman hows it going ? i suppose your comments are right but a nice sunny disposition goes a long way also dont you think ?
