    Never know it to be this busy in all the time I have been cleaning.

    The work that is coming in is unreal.

    Today has seen 9 new customers in. Quoted 5 so far and got 5. Two had a wobble on the price lol but sold it to them. Albeit 8 weekly.

    Good times.

    He is working in a very good area with good recommendations and good website with very good seo
    I have been with him helping for a day in the past and seen how many emails and calls he gets
    I'm doing well but not quite as good as that

    Good on you damo. I was going to slow down after selling off one of my rounds to my former worker. I now have my mates son working for me, and might have his brother starting soon. I've mentioned I sell of bits of work to another windie, but I'm getting work that's right on where I work constantly at the moment. I agree with you, its bloody manic at the moment.
    I stopped working Saturdays last year, but have started doing every other Saturday now to cope with the pressure washing side of things. 9 pressure washing jobs booked and generally hope nobody else wants a quote, I'm knackered

    Stop showing off. ;)

    Seriously though the amount of business you seem to get out of nowhere is unreal, i dont think ive had 9 new customer enquiries this year, if i want work i have to go out and canvass it as walk ups and website produce next to nothng.

    I don't have a website but through facebook and recommendations i have got around £250 of 1 off jobs (fascias etc) and 5 regular customers (3 from the 1 off jobs) since friday evening
    Not done any of them yet but they are on my round now
    I average 3-4 new jobs per week through facebook and recommendations and I only post once a fortnight or week depending if i remember
