    Hi does anyone offer free cleans to customers who get you another customer as an incentive to do so? Thinking of doing it but think it may be open to abuse ie they get there mate to have ne clean windows so they get free clean then mate cancels next time round.

    4 people have got me 3 new clients.
    3 people have got me 6
    Which is not to bad.

    50% off first 4 cost me £20. (2x10, 1x8 & 1x12)
    Free cleans off next 3 cost me £27. (1x7, 2x10)

    So cost me so far £47 for 30 new customers at roughly £1.50 a customer so not bad.

    Yes I do this! I offer a free clean if they get me a regular customer. I tell them every job I get from them I will credit them that amount off there future bill, have picked up lots this way & rarely do I get asked for a free clean I normally get told not to worry about it!
    One customer I had on sat went & leaflet dropped the whole street for me whilst I cleaned his windows lol why cant I find more like him! lol
