    whats your long term plan ? iv never really had one, till now just keepin building up my round but last night chattin wi the missus iv decided that from next spring im changing my round .
    everything 3 storey is going ,end of . everything difficult basically . to make this happen i will need to sit down over xmas break and plan a marketing campaign on the council estates to bring in a surge of extra jobs at the same time the 3 storey gets the chop ,

    talking of the chop i will chop up my big ladder sets over the xmas break to make sure i dont go back on my plan- possibly using a chopsaw that was conveniently one of my xmas pressies .

    im going to need a real rush of new council house jobs to cover the shortfall in income once the 3 storey stuff goes- so thats my long term plan

    Well my initial goal is to build a full round so that has to be the main aim, although i want to build it with decent prices and have a minimum amount of "have to collect" or "has to be ins for access" from the start, so far its on track.

    Long term i want to branch into other areas of cleaning, particularly carpets but pressure washing etc as well. I want to be able to advertise solely online through websites and word of mouth and get everything paid online also, basically mimimise the amount of admin and marketting i have to do and concentrate on doing the job.

    From there i suppose keep upping prices for all services and dropping the bottom until it cant be done anymore then maybe i would set employess on whatever contributes to earning as much as poss for as little work as poss.

    Ultimately i want to have a balance, 4-5 days a week work is good

    Hows this for some ideas boar;
    Sell big ladders; get maybe £60,and with that place a couple of months worth of ads in the local paper.
    Gather up all the old awkward jobs- high ones, limited access ones etc. And make up a round targeted towards aspiring new WFPers.-They'll be glad of the work, and you'll get more money for leaflets and advertising. Could be an easy couple of hundred quid to be made there that can go straight back into the business.


    My plans are to build the round to a point where I can't cope, and then take someone on to half the load. USe him to build up the round, to the point where both of us can't cope, trim off the chaff, and then reap the rewards.
