Haven’t used him but seems like a good guy, spoke to him a bit about it. It’s different from green pro as it’s Google advertising rather than Facebook. Advantage of this is its folk looking for a window cleaner, rather than advertising to everyone (which has its own advantages, don’t get me wrong!)

Hi, no I never used this one. I used Green Pro and Build my Round last year. 

I tried utilising them this year but things have changed this year. Lead Generation costs haves have risen this year (don't ask me why!) and they are finding it impossible to do this year. Costs per lead is simply too expensive. 

I have found a solution though and do it myself now. Simply for two days of advertising, I'm signing up 13 new customers each time and dismissing far more as I'm being selective about jobs and locations. 

I'm only doing two days of advertising each time as I can't cope with the demand?

I know how you feel. I did one and they weren't even in. Think it was the wrong flat I did or they wanted a free clean. Was going to go back when they were in and do it again then I realised, I don't even do that area. I'm definitely going down the selective route now.

I know you didn’t ask me but I’m in the process of getting set up with them. Will post on here after I’ve given them a try. 
What do they do? Is it just a case of advertising via Google? I've done this myself and this is what Build my Round did last year. Bit of a mixed bag but I look forward to hearing how you get on. 

Good luck.

Did you ever get round to using getsoapy mate? I'm looking to beef up my round a bit. 

Cheers! 
Hey mate. No I haven’t went ahead. I’ve decided to sell up so don’t want to take on more work, lol! But the guy seemed decent, I would give it a go and see how it goes

Our best advertising is our van. Pay for a professional signage and the work will roll in, all you need to do is park the van in an auspicious place that everyone will see it. ? 
This is misleading mate. I have times I get lots of work I’m through the van and other times I get non. The best idea is to do it all. Cast a wide net!

Networking you mean. The many irons in the fire scenario. The more time you put into something the luckier or better you get. That's why if you have not made it after 4 years then you might never make it. I'm picking up all the new houses in Skye Crescent at £8 a pop, handy as its just round the corner from me. ?

Thanks mate for getting back to me, I think I will give them a go as you say the guy seems sound. Hope all works out for you mate! I'd buy some off you if you were closer! ?

Thanks for your interest in getSoapy. Sorry we're a bit late to the thread.

We have actually just launched fixed price lead generation.

It's early days so we're not making much noise about it yet, but if you'd like to try it out sign up at getsoapy.co.uk and drop us a message in the in-app chat. We'll add a free lead to your account as a thank.

Thanks!

It's more Google advertising they do rather than a set amount of leads so you just pay like 10 quid a day and the leads trickle in.

I'd you prefer just getting a set amount of leads I'd speak to Green pro clean he does that.
Hi ,

As far as I know Darren from Green Pro moved abroad and he does not do any window cleaning advertising .I used his services almost for 2 years but then he emailed me back that he won't do it anymore due to law change.

Is Darren doing it again then ?

Hey mate did you go with them in the end? 
Hi Doddy mate, 

Yes I did give them a go, I only went for the minimum and had quite a close radius to keep my work compact. 

I got one extra lead for free by telling the support that I had come from the forum so ended up with 6 leads. I would say it took a few weeks to gather them (so not an instant result) and the information that they do gather is more than enough for you to decide whether you want to contact them or not. 

I did find a couple of my customers to be messers and ended up not going to visit them, but that isn't GetSoapy fault. 

The lead marketplace was something I was interested in but unfortunately there was never really any leads for me to buy from there. 

I gave them a try and I have gained a few customers. I get a slightly better return on Facebook ads myself (Similar to the ones GetSoapy run to gather their leads I think) So I will probably stick to that in the future, but overall a good experience.

Hi Jake,

Glad you were happy with the service, and thanks for sharing your feedback.

We're constantly reviewing the lead generation and over time it's getting faster and better.

The lead marketplace is something we're seeing a lot of interest in. As more window cleaners start using the free quote widget and offering their unwanted leads there should be a more available in the marketplace.
