    I'm just starting out, bought my kit from WCW, got a van, a few customers and now need to get a lot more so that I can finish my day job and become a full time window cleaner. I enjoy using the WFP system, but my trad method needs some work on, any tips?

    I'm not great at trad but good enough to do the odd window or interior clean.

    Watch a bunch of YouTube videos and practice, practice, practice.

    As for picking up new customers, create a business page on Facebook, join all your local buy and sell groups and advertise on them.

    Another good way of picking up customers is door knocking. I'm not a fan of it but others swear by it.

    If you're vans not sign written it's probably worth looking into that too. My old van wasn't sign written but I got a new one a couple of months back and had it done and it's got me loads of new jobs.

    Thanks Adams0211 . Door to door, some word of mouth and facebook have been my best results for customers so far.

    Howdie dale. Only one way to get good at trad, practice, practice and then practice again. Important you can do it with both hands

    Never thought I'd be thanking a Millwall fan ;). Thanks Steve steve garwood , much appreciated! I'm looking at using UBIK, is it UBIK 2000 I should use? Not sure if there are different versions and where's best to buy?
