    So we clean this massive new estate, which easily doubled the size of the village its attached to, have maybe 50 customers on there, well they have their own little local facebook page that I have been a member of for about a year.

    Never mentioned the window cleaning or anything but recently started posting helpful posts about life in the area etc.

    Well last night I posted that we were expanding our window cleaning in the area and if anyone knows anyone who would like their house adding to the round to let us know, that was at about 5pm, I then sat until midnight talking to new customers and 2 hours this morning.

    16 new window cleaning customers, 3 pressure washing jobs, 4 conservatories and maybe 10 that asked to be messeged but haven't got back yet or are asking wifes/husbands etc

    Have one lady who runs the local child care place that is going to hand out our business cards to parents.

    I am not entirely sure what I have done here, but I wish I could figure it out and repeat it! (actually I don't, I have no idea when I am going to do this pressure washing and conservatories........ help me)

    That's exactly what happened to me with 1 particular area on facebook
    It was built a few years ago on green belt land at the side of my town
    They have always been considered and act like they are seperate from the town as there is i road in and out of the area so it is seperate
    I got in there by doing a job for the woman who started the community facebook group who recommended i get on there
    With hers and subsequent recommendations from customers up there it now makes at least 2 3rds of my whole customer base
    I regularly just chat on their facebook groups and now everyone knows me as the windie in that area

    Yeah this is the same, separate entrances, even have two separate schools.

    Just amazing reaction though, normally facebook is like a dribble of work, this was just a complete flood, I literally sat for hours even eating my dinner chatting to new customers.

    I was the first windie on a new build estate, probably only 30 houses. The first house I picked up was for the woman who ran the local faecesbook page. She said that she would put me on as the recommended cleaner. Woohoo I thought, until she claimed that I scratched her sill with my brush. She said unless I can offer traditional cleaning she will have to go elsewhere. So I let her go elsewhere. I don't think I'm the recommended windy anymore :laugh:
