    i had like 153 customers 2 weeks ago.. and now i got 151 customers... a lot of people are cancelling but at the same time im gaining a few customers aswell...

    lost 2 today as they just cancelled... i think its due to the winter...

    but aslong as i stay over 150 customers im happy :)

    but i need to get up to £1500 a month income... im only on £1100 at the moment

    I lost one there that didn't want it done over the winter, I just tell them we offer an all year round service, if thats not want they want then, I won't start them again come summer.

    We wouldn't be in business if everyone did that, it just wouldn't be worth our while.

    H, I think you're doing great mate keep at it, I love the fact that you have your customer total under your posts. It shows that you're really focused on it. If you maintain that same level of focus you'll do great.

    laddergarder is right, but I have a couple of exceptions with that one, one of them getting new pvc windows in the winter so no point in keep cleaning them if hes getting new so will carry him on after winter.

    But if your canvassing now(autenm/winter) its the best time to get custies as they will always be all year round, there are people out there that only want in summer, wait till there windows get dirty(prob over 12 weeks then they will prob realise.....

    Do you leaflet then canvas a few days later??

    To be honest I would not leaflet on a sunday, Sunday people are relaxing with their family, Monday and Tuesday there stressed out from work, best dropping Wednesday an Thursday or if you Gona follow up with canvassing then drop them Tuesday/ Wednesday and canvass on thur/ frid
