    How do I get more customers. Posted flyers but have not had much response yet but maybe the weather has affected this. Got my self on Facebook and buy and sell sites. Got most from these. Got a website. I'm not the sort of person that likes door knocking. Any helpful tips would be appreciated.

    If you want more work knock doors then as the worst that can happen is they tell you to get lost.

    Only way to get instant results is door knocking, give them a leaflet and just ask them 'do they want their windows cleaned'. website can take up to 6 months a year to get results but is probably the best form when your established as these are looking for a window cleaning. Leaflets can be hit and miss but because a leaflet dont work in one area doesnt mean it wont in another. Pay a canvasser to do the door knocking for you, you probably be cleaning them twice before you get any return.

    Door knocking is the quickest way to get work. It also puts you face to face with your potential customer, and they can see who they will be dealing with too.

    The worst that can happen is to be told 'no'.

    Hi Neil I was going up mention the Facebook buy/sell pages as these work really well for window cleaning. You're doing this already so I'd say keep pushing this.

    Also have you thought about having some kind of referral scheme? Getting someone else to get the work for you is a real winner for everyone!
