    Hi all. Had loads of great advice and info from all on this forum. It's great how willing to help us newbies you are.

    I was wondering...
    For residential only...

    1. What percentage of your customers have insides cleaned too?

    2. What percentage only have fronts cleaned?

    Thanks all.

    Have around 100 regular customers at the moment just one lady has inside clean and two other people have fronts only the rest gets everything done outside.

    Thanks guys. That's a relief. Those numbers sound good to me.
    So it seems safe to presume around 1 or 2 out of every 100 have fronts only cleaned and about the same numbers opt to have insides cleaned too.

    How do you price for fronts only and how do you price for insides (residential)?

    I've got about 180 regular customers, probably 20-30 have their insides done on a regular basis, if it's a good customer I charge the same for inside, not so good customers get charged 1.5x the outside price. 0 front only, I don't offer it as a service, it's all round or nothing, I hold the view that recommendations are the best advertising, if a customer recommended you to a friend or relative based on their windows, then looked at the back and thought "that window cleaner ain't very good, look at the back windows"..

    You quickly learn your craft being on here just October last year i was starting out from scratch and.knew nothing about wfp cleaning and now have 100 customers and that number is.growing constantly.mainly thru recommendations and a little bit of website traffic. So learn your craft and keep doing a.good job and rewards will come

    I know a trad lad that just does fronts only for donky years and charges extra to do backs when asked less frequent. He covers what I call the pain in the **** area of the town as are all old terraced properties with difficult access to the backs. He has a very compact large round he has built up over the years. Hence why he prefers to just do fronts only which makes his job so much easier & quicker to do as he just parks his car up and walks his round.
