    Up until the last few days, work has been a steady stream of enquiries.

    Now work has literally exploded!

    I think in one day 12 jobs came in.

    I had lost a deep clean on a conny a few weeks back. Now he has changed his mind as a competitor RECOMMENED they use us! What's that about lol.

    What's happening in your areas guys?

    My time hop on Facebook was the same deal 3 years ago lol. Busy busy.

    See what I mean. I think I did twig it was linked to school teachers. Quite a few jobs we have done are teachers.

    Lucky you mate. Once work is on cleaner planner. Then I will book a holiday. Will be easier to do with certain work.

    When you get really busy. You get chains round your neck with this job. Taking on weekly shops etc is a nightmare if you can't cover them.

    where do all these calls come from?
    i get next to none for windows/connys and gutters, couple a month tops

    i get a steady call or two every week or so for car valeting from my website but not really interested in that.

    getting a new window cleaning site build maybe that will help, or maybe i just need more custies for the old word of mouth effect

    Mostly from website.

    I think maybe 2-4 have been recommendations. I usually track it all but that went out the window lol.

    Leaflets have dried up for me. I put out loads and loads and not gone one call.

    A good rule of thumb i have heard from other windies is, that when you hit 100 regulars aprrox you are to so many people that the worth of mouth is really working, gotta say it fits good got steady calls for 2 weeks now and got 103 regulars at the moment.
