    Had one of those days today..new jobs and constantly hearing"mr window cleaner can you do mine"

    Getting tight for time
    Do leaflets work or best to knock on all the doors?

    Big area to cover (about 12 roads)

    Where I was today are the easiest houses.all identical 2 up 2 down on front
    2 up 1 down and patio doors on back
    10-15 mins work and tenner each
    Not been chargung extra for first clean as not too busy at the mo
    Think getting the custys is more important than time for now

    leaflets av their place , but you must put out a lot of them to guarantee a result. in the early days i used to go out leaflettin 1 hour , but later learnt thats a waste of time. you need to do 3 or 4 hours worth , at least twice a week , to get anything worthwhile

    I dropped 1000 leaflets off and didn't get a single reply when I started. :(

    BUT... I didn't have a website, and ...it was in December!

    ...so, timing was out, and a website gives people a great way of checking you out before calling.
