    I am nearly at that stage where i am ready and just need to budget and get everything in order for getting work in.

    We all know the main thing is getting your name out there and regonized, seeing as i havent yet started, that wont be from word of mouth.....therefore it needs to be visual!

    1) Car signed
    2) Various Flyers
    3) canvasing
    4) catchy slogan and name
    5) posters in shop windows
    6) Facebook page
    7) twitter profile
    8) website, set up for seo
    9)business cards

    any other things i can do or have missed?


    Thanks

    Dave

    Yeah sounds good mate, if you're just killing time then you can get your office in order, ready for all those phone calls. Here is a few things I do which I find works well for me.

    I have a 'new customer' form by my phone which gets filled out, then put in a file 'to be quoted', then once quoted, they go in another one ' to be added to database'. I hate little bits of paper, they just get lost, so any leads I get, I make sure they get put through this system, which helps me, loads.

    I also use little paper 'your windows were cleaned today' slips, and I find this is also really useful, and the customers see, to like them. So thats worth considering if you haven't thought about doing that.

    Here is a wee list of documents that I use, and would recommend you think about making up;

    invoices
    receipts
    quotation (only used for large coms)
    intro letter for new home owners (for when a customer moves house)
    Account on hold letter
    welcome letter
    H&S Assessment

    I would like to make up a pack, that I can just send out to large commercial leads but I am still working on that one.
