    Had an E-mail from gumtree last night from a women wanting her flats cleaned...

    So i said ill come around today... and i drove down... and before i went to her house.... a women came over to me and said i never had a window cleaner i want one... she had 5 windows at the top :)

    So i said ill do all 5 windows and the door and frames and sills for £5.00 :)

    so i went to the original customer and said 5.00 aswell :) she was happy she said my next door wants theirs doing so i knocked their and she agreed..

    so i knocked 2 more....... and they wanted them doing aswell

    1 women said she got 1 but not happy with him she said he uses a pole but doesnt clean my frames properly i said to her ill do it for u she goes yeah i want u.. i go make sure u cancel him them okay :) and she was like yeah no problem !

    so i picked up 5x customers for £5.00 each all in the same block :)

    should only take me like 10-15 mins per flat :p

    on the other hand... i picked up a house just the fronts for £4.00

    and another house for £6.00 and a 8 weekly clean house for £8.00

    and chucked 1 customer off.. cos she is a bad payer and cant be bothered with her .. and another customer is moving house .... so im now on to 130 customers :eek:

    Lol

    Only ones I've had from gumtree I've given away, would only let me advertise in Nottingham. I'll have to remember to try again.
