    Hi guys
    I have been reading the 'Twitbook' thread by MrBump so decided to start pushing my Facebook page. I setup one about four months back, but didn't know how to publicse it. The thread came up with the idea of regularly pushing the page on those local buy and sell groups on FB, so that's what I have been doing. And I wanted to update this thread as I go along with how many leads are coming in, as it may encourage other cleaners to try the same.

    So far (since yesterday)
    £17.00 clean, every six weeks
    £15.00 clean, every six weeks, but will confirm tonight when he checks with his missus
    £55.00 one off clean, inside and out, for a woman selling her house.

    Here is my page, give it a like, and any thoughts on how to make it better...

    Regards
    Jon

    Good work Jon, glad to hear its bringing in work already. Like the pictures, I need to remember to take more myself! I think people prefer to look than read, at least at first, so good for grabbing attention. Just started setting one up myself. Let me know how you get on, good luck!

    what works really well on FB is when you get a previous customer vouch for you , the casual comment "cleans mine,hes a very good cleaner" , this triggers off a melee of newbies,the waterfall effect.
    iv one or 2 comment -happy customers who i butter up, when i see them i say, \"see you on Fb later this arvo" an i later post a comment or a foto of their street with me van on it an write comments such as "youv done so well with that fishpond "

    they love to see the waterfall effect too

    Thanks for the tips guy, my opening times have now changed, good spot peter rogers!

    Good points with regards to ratings, I'd like to do the same on my Google page to get me further up the ratings (I will post another topic with tips for that).

    Would it be worth printing my details on a card and making an effort to give one to every customer?

    I have started when I send the message (after they've commented on the link I've posted) I offer them to suggest a date which is convenient for them for a quote. Or I've said they could send me a picture of the front/sides and back of their house, and I can quote while in the message service with them.
    Saves me going out and sorts out the wasters as well. Everyone has chosen the photo option and it works real well!

    Today's results
    -3 leads who will send me pictures tonight
    -Quotation in Norwich city centre

    Regards
    Jon

    I find Facebook pages brilliant I post on the for sale pages regularly and everytime with out fail I pick up at least 6 new customers. I tend to post 3 times a week and quote everything over messenger. I've built about 70% of my business from Facebook

    Hey Jon.

    Really like the before and after pics, my eye is always drawn to those. Your first review is slightly suspect though!
