    How many of you are expecting this ?

    Im guessing the people that have been established for years are fine :)

    This is my 2nd winter... and last winter wasnt to bad... i got a few cancellations... but i also picked up customers to replace them with :)

    My biggest downfall is that am expecting a big commercial job go from a 1 weekly clean to a 4 weekly clean - This will be a £100.00 loss each month

    Upsell other areas, H..

    Like right now I'm about to make a big push for gutter cleans to be done around the end of the month as soon it will be winter and gutters will be overflowing because they've been filling up with leaves all summer and etc..

    This is what I put on my website about it and basically what I'm going to be telling customers - http://www.rpwc.co.uk/gutter-cleaning-time-of-year/ -

    Also I'm going to run a promotion soon that if people take me on on a monthly basis from now until december, then in december i'll do an interior window clean for free. People have guests over christmas and they'll want the place looking nice. A bit of face-time might also net me a tip here or there too.. or at least a sip of something nice like mulled wine to keep me warm :)
