    So i'm about 2-3 months into my window cleaning life atm and doing ok got few customers signed up and got 1 really good commercial job to do 3 times a week.
    iv got a 2-3 year plan which basically is be a full time window cleaner sooner the better imo

    This a normal day in the life of me lol wake up at 5am get to my paye job finish at 10-30/11 then out on the windows till 4-5 ish most week days and i care a lot for my grandparents as well and iv got my 1 and half year old boy over the weekends so as you can see i am very busy 90% of the time.

    onto the campaign

    plan is to drop 20k of flyer s in the areas i cover over 2-3 month period
    iv got a company dropping them which have 4 people supervised dropping them and hit an area all together.

    what would i like back from 20000 flyer's dropped around 50-60 solid monthly jobs id be happy with.

    main thing is i wanna get my name out there and see what the response is if it fails i'll get a canvassing team together and get them knocking on the doors.

    flyer s have been ordered and should be here this week sometime then it starts so i'll update once its started and let u all know if my mass drop of flyer s was worth it or not :]

    well its all done thro the firm whos delivering them for me.

    Thay designed them for me to my spec and ordered them for me and will deliver them to the areas i want

    iv bought 30k a5 glossy these will do for my mass 20k drop and if that goes well i'll drop the extra 10 if not i'll keep these for canvassing with.

    to get 1k delivered is £25 so 10k will cost £250 which is pritty cheap tbh and its done quick and efficiently.

    i'm trying to get it a bit cheaper if i pay for 20k upfront but well see

    the flyer it self is full coulour a5
    logo
    window cleaning specialists
    domestic and commercial
    bit of bumff about reliable service all year round
    small 2 lines on how we clean your frames doors at no extra cost
    services
    website
    number
    facebook

    and has 4 pics on the side

    i think it has to be tryed tbh around me as i never receive a window cleaning flyer thro the post i get things like gardening or handy man stuff but not window cleaning so may be a market for it but well see :]

    all i can do is try and hope for a good response

    Ya the price is good the fact i'm dropping so many is why its costing so much ie £500 for 20000 but i only need 50-60 customers from it to get my money back and then if thay are monthly happy days

    it dont shine for long in wales either mate but summers coming now so next 2 months is the right time if there is ever a right time lol

    Good luck pal, even of you get 1% will be 200 jobs hopefully every month, not bad for £500 + flyer costs.

    Nice one! Flyers really depends on the area.. You could do a street that already has a cleaner and get no calls, do another area with no cleaner and you phone will be buzzing!
     
  10. I know its nearly 12 months later but how did the flyers go?
    Did it generate any business?
