    Hi all,

    As the title suggests, I'm new to window cleaning. Just waiting to take delivery of my last couple of bits of equipment so as of tomorrow, I'm canvassing, flyering and facebooking on a mission to hit my first goal; jobs to the value of £1000 per month within 10 weeks.
    Hopefully by making this public to you lot and knowing you're watching my progress, it'll give me sufficient motivation to get out there and get it done so as not to look silly by failing :rofl:.
    Anyway I'm off to practice my technique a bit more..

    I'd say thats a tough but achievable goal. Its a good time of year to get started with spring just around the corner. Good luck fella.

    Welcome fella
    Keep that attitude and you will be fine
    It's all about mental attitude in this game
    Let yourself get demoralised and it will affect how you canvass etc
    If you have a shite day screw it tomorrow will be different

    the world is your lobster rodney

    Cheers gents. Anyway, first day was terrible, rained off and then I decided to knock a full cuppa onto my 2 month old laptop :(.
    Today was better, got a little bit of canvassing done, three small houses and a hair salon's window on my books now totalling £34 a month. It's a start.

    HI KPFM, keep at it we have all been there, i found the best investment i did was with yell.com for £18 per month i come up top 3 in 5 local areas and get around 10-20 enquires per month so rate of return is very could to out lay, i found much more succesful then flyers etc, but nothing will beat persistence and a lot of door knocking, plus once you get a few on board if you do a good job thats how the word of mouth spreads...good luck pal
