    Ive recently been pushing my gutter cleaning alot more now both my kids are at school full time i was going to get some more windows but decided to keep them at 2-3 days a week for a couple of reasons 1. I earn more doing gutters, 2. I f i have to many windows to do i will struggle threw the school holidays to get them all done.

    anyway ive designed a simple leaflet i decided on something fairly basic after a recent topic about looking too professional giving the impression that im expensive so hopefully going with a basic leaflet will get me more phone calls and once im at the customers house it should be easier to sell myself and my services alot easier than over the phone ( well thats the theory.) Ive got a family member to put a 1000 a week out for me at the cost of £25 per 1000 im going to be doing this for 5 weeks at first to see how it goes im hoping to get a 1-2% response rate or around 10- 12 a week im going to be starting this towards the end of next week once ive finalized my flyer design and got them printed.

    my flyer design (minus my real tel number)

    i find that flyer a bit confusing as you ask have you had your gutters cleaned and then below in the box you offer facia and soffit cleaning , maybe you should be asking if they had their gutters emptied or cleared

    i can see what you mean but i wouldnt say it was confusing it could be put better i suppose.

    Thats the idea i was after mark when people first look at it they think wow thats cheap il give them a call, to get your gutters cleaned for £25 it would be a new build terrace the ones that have 6m on the front and 6m of guttering on the back the bigger older style of terrace i usually charge around £30-£35 for a clean out then if i can sell them a g&f clean as well even better, :Image13: and hopefully il get the odd jet-wash job as well

    any gutter clearence jobs i do i always ask the customer would they like them done every year and a lot take up the offer so it helps to generate more work , good luck anyway
