    I thought i would share my plan for what i want to do because a lot of people on here love reading my posts ;) haha

    My plan is to get up to 300 customers in total.

    I want to clean 15 houses a day ( I can not do 20 at the moment because im a bit slow and im new)

    I decided that I want to work monday to friday. So 5 x 15 customers = 75 customers per week. I work on a 4 weekly schedule - week 1 , week 2 , week 3 & week 4

    I have 38 customers so far and today is my 28th day since i started trading.

    My average job price is just under £7.00 ( I live up north ) But when i get to 300 customers i can get that average price up to £8 and then higher and higher

    So i worked out that with 300 customers and earning £7.00 average i will be earning £2100 per month

    Thats over £500.00 per week : )

    I can then grow and do 20 houses per day when i pick up more speed : ) so that will be taking me an extra £500.00 more per a month.

    Once i have reached 100 customers i can imagine my phone buzzing much more : )

    This week i will be bringing my referral programme in to place.... Recommend a friend family member or neighbour on a monthly basis and get 1 clean for free.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    I HAVE DESIGNED A BUSINESS CARD RECEIPT FOR MY CLIENT :) FOR WHEN I HAVE CLEANED THEIR WINDOWS ETC IF THEY ARE NOT IN ON THE CARD IT SAYS I WILL CALL BACK SO AND SO.
    ON THE REVERSE IT HAS GOT ALL THE DETAILS ABOUT THE REFFERAL PROGRAMME :) IT LOOKS SO APPEALING THAT ITS AN OFFER NOT TO BE MISSED

    The other day i told one of my customers recommend someone and get a clean for free.... so i went today to pick the money up he came running out of his house before i got to the door.... saying my neighbour wants his cleaning but his neighbour only wanted it every 8 weeks. i never said nothing and agreed to give him a clean for free :) Cos he was so eager to get a clean for free i thought he still got me 1 customer :) And i only charge him £5.00 for his house anyway so he never payed me... but i charged himn £2.00 because i cleaned his fascias above his door :)

    So i can really see this referral scheme taking off really good. Up north where i work they do anything to get something for free !

    So they will not let it slip out of their hands ! Its more business for me at the end of the day.

    I am not making a profit on my business at the moment, but i worked out that the day when i hit 100 customers thats when i will be making a profit and start feeling the money coming in to my pocket ! : )

    So my aim at the moment is to get up to 100 customers regardless of the cost ! : )

    Hope this helps some of you people in your business :D

    If anyone wants to see my Recipt/Referral business card inbox me : ) and i will show you the image

    I have also got my van signed up now... but its only 80% done.... got some writing missing of the side... and a phone number missing of the back.... that should be sorted next week ! : )

    Well good luck I tryed this when I first started but realised after a bit it is near enough impossible to fit in 20 days in a month because of weather we have even in the summer
