    Mine looks basic but I'm told in has the words that Google likes to move it up the rankings:

    www.newleafwindowcleaning.co.uk

    It seems to be working as its moved up to the 3rd page in (8 months) when searching for 'Brighton window cleaner' or something similar.

    As long as the website is advertised on the van then this should bring in jobs especially within the areas that you already work as neighbours etc will see the van parked up. I have been quite surprised about how many of these jobs come through - would recommend an online enquiry form for just this purpose.

    Another big bonus is an online payments function e.g Paypal.

    Would recommend paying someone to get it done of your like myself and don't really understand how it all works.

    It will only bring in work if your near the top of the first page on Google, so my advice from expierence would be get a good website developer/designer to make one for you and ask him/her to work on the SEO which is what gets it ranking high on the first page,

    If you do that, you'll never look back, my work exploded with top ranking website, but only when it hit top spot as that's where most people click...

    Mine now brings me plenty of work but it took a little while to work its way up, don't expect it overnight. Most importantly for me it gives my customers an easy way to pay as it has a paypal tab.

    my website usually brings in 10 Jobs a week.

    That's on all the services we offer.

    Recently as much as 5-15 a day. Starting to quieten down now.

    Yes I have one and yes it brings in work every day. To the degree that I have a message on my contact page stating that I have no room for new clients at the moment.

    Whilst sat here drinking tea watching the rain, I have turned away three potential new clients.

    My site is a build your own through yola. In my opinion, you don't need to spend a fortune on designers.
