    Do you think it's worth giving potential customers as much info as possible about potential jobs. Obviously you'll explain very quickly that you're a window/solar panel cleaner etc, but would customers welcome a flyer and two additional A5 sheets of paper?

    This is what I've got planned. When out canvassing, obviously you can get a yes/no from people who come to the door. I'm thinking of drawing up a Water Fed Pole/Pure Water FAQ sheet which will explain the benefits of using WFP/Pure and how it works.

    Additionally, I'd also like to make up another sheet titled Solar Panel Cleaning FAQ's explaining why your solar panels should be cleaned twice a year, backed up with some facts and figures.

    Do you think people would be raging to recieve this through their door or happy they've got something to read regarding the upkeep of an expensive piece of investment they've purchased? :ninja:

    I think you can ask people if they want that kind of information and then give it to them.

    I think with stuff like this you have to ask yourself what you would want/do. Personally, if someone gave me a leaflet on pole cleaning systems I would nod and smile, close the door and then put it in the bin.....aint nobody got time for that.

    ...But where the leaflet may come in useful is where the customer has concerns (why are my windows left wet etc..). And if someone specifically asks about the system you use if would save you a bit of time and feed there interest/curiosity.

    knock the door offer window cleaning it cheap and instant hit wen you seal the deal give them a biz card so they no ur details and say also i will leave this with you its our full list of services ?

    for people who say i got a window cleaner just say thank you sorry for wasting your time and offer them the leaflet

    i get in frst doin the windows then grip them for pvc cleaning and gutters then wen weather is improving offer a price for pressure washing

    people will be more likely to say yes to a 100 pound or more driveways clean when they know who you are :)

    yep me got my eye on quite a few jobs that I can do for custys that as of yet they dont know I can do....

    so if things went slack I would put through a leaflet starting with your windows were cleaned today and go on to list other jobs I can do as I am in the process of doing at the moment ..whether it goes in the bin or not I dont care, maybe they will read it maybe not..

    just dont let frank do it as he will put your bank details the wrong way round on the back and that could lose you money...:rolleyes:
