    I have posted this as part of another thread but figured it ought to be here anyway as this is the system I used to build a £60k business in 12 months.
    This is copied and pasted from the other thread!
    _______________________________________________________________________________________

    But as a wise man once said ask and you shall receive, now be warned, this has been a closely guarded secret by me for 8 years and using it could seriously improve your income and you attractiveness to the opposite sex (That previous statement excludes Smurf, you might still have a chance with the Blue People of Montana however :p)

    Last time I printed 10'000 of these at a cost of £150 - 10'000 may sound like a lot but if you consider an average street around here is 100 houses, you can leaflet 5 streets a day EASY - by day 20 that's directly hit 10'000 targeted customers.

    Do not be stingy, hit EVERY HOME, and ask for top dollar in your area too, you will get it. If their windows look clean, give em a leaflet, I have heard many times, oh great I just god rid of the last asshole!
    If the sign on the door says no leaflets, put it in anyway, out of 10'000 I had one guy ream me out for it. I get loads from houses saying no leaflets cause no one else drops in those houses.

    I havn't carded in six months and I am still getting calls from people that have held onto my card.

    You are welcome to copy this but MAKE SURE YOU CHANGE the phone number, I aint going to dumfries to clean windows.

    This is similar to Dirwachs leaflet but the key difference here is you will have interaction with the client prior to cleaning their windows. With Dirwachs card they put it up on the day and Im guessing you just clean them anyhow weather they are home or not.

    The only way this fails is if you are a total tool when you go see the customer. -- Also remember that that the price you put on the card is assuming the front and back of the property are the same - if you learn of a conservatory when you talk to them CHARGE MORE!

    Thank for this info Green, you showed me these a while ago, i came up with something similar and they arrived yesterday, mine are just one sided would have preferred two but just £34 delivered for 5000.

    I have left a space for a quote to be written on.

    I am going to target terraced houses first with mine becasue i will be able to get more out faster, also when it comes back to checking it will be quicker and easier.

    Will see how these go

    I like the idea 'or place in your front window' Green. Out of interest, how often do you visit a home that have placed it in the window and then try and haggle on price?

    Deliberately using someone elses leaflet and claiming as your own is crossing the line imo.

    Anyway id say chances are slim, i would re check next day or 2-3 days max

    That is when you use cheap sh*te cards with no contact information on them as you can see ours have name, phone, email, and facebook. We are the only canvassers that do so. Someone else put yellow cards that had no info just a price and put this in your window and we will clean your windows. He put them in my custies houses and they all gave me his cards, cheaper but they dont trust as no information on card.

    Unless you live in a really scabby area (and dont forget I am in Nottingham you will find most 99.9% of all window cleaners are too lazy to try and poach your cards. Others cardsarecheap **** cards with no name, number or anything so they dont get business

    As our cards have company name, contact details etc all over them and we are a legit operator should you poach one of mine that is theft and you will be sued through the courts for all potential loss of earnings, proven against longest standing client records. Or some **** according to my lawyer. In short, pinch em, clean them once and I can sue you for about 3 years of cleans.
