    Had an email come through from window cleaning directory.

    Gave her quote via email. Asked for details and used street view.

    Did the job on Saturday and its a regular customer, next door came out and i did his too. I think his will be a one off, to be fair he said only a one off.

    Was hard going but did them both in an hour for £30 so was happy.

    My first job in nearly 3 years! lol!!!

    Directories like that I find are rubbish for generating extra new work so you did well to get one phone call in 3 years :laugh:

    I have had a number of jobs from freeindex, as well as it being used to lead people to my website and them contacting me via my own contact forms.

    Signed up to all that are going. They generally are rubbish. But don't pay for them so who cares.

    I have only been going since February and am on all the free websites like free index and yelp. Got a call last week from local business who googled window cleaners in my area and got my name from there. Called round, quoted £8 for shopfront and he said great can you do it every 3 weeks and every week in the summer!!! Lucky me i reckon but that is only call i had so far from the inter web thing-a-me-bob.
