    I'm just about to start window cleaning, traditional, as an add on to my carpet cleaning and having used leaflets before to get customers I thought i would use an A6 postcard with carpet cleaning on one side and window cleaning on the other, although on the carpet cleaning side it will say New Service " WIndow Cleaning" see over for details and on Window Cleaning side "we also do carpet cleaning" see over for details.

    or would i be better off doing a separate leaflet, only i hate missing an opportunity to promote both businesses at the same time.

    Cheers Midland

    I'm not too far away from you actually, but far enough, i'm based near Banbury, although i will be targeting north Oxfordshire Although occasionally get out as far as Coventry on the odd carpet cleaning job, did one last week in Radford.

    I have windows one side and domestic cleaning on the other, 350gsm, so real good quality. Not something easy to screw up and throw away.

    Rubbish, haha, I posted out 4000 and have had 2/3 calls,jobs from it. But my main objective was to get my website which is quite new out there, plus sometimes people keep hold of the leaflets and call u a later time.

    I used leaflets once, handed out about 20 on one street and got 4 calls!
