Recommended Posts

Had one of those days today..new jobs and constantly hearing"mr window cleaner can you do mine"


Getting tight for time

Do leaflets work or best to knock on all the doors?


Big area to cover (about 12 roads)

Where I was today are the easiest houses.all identical 2 up 2 down on front

2 up 1 down and patio doors on back

10-15 mins work and tenner each

Not been chargung extra for first clean as not too busy at the mo

Think getting the custys is more important than time for now

leaflets av their place , but you must put out a lot of them to guarantee a result. in the early days i used to go out leaflettin 1 hour , but later learnt thats a waste of time. you need to do 3 or 4 hours worth , at least twice a week , to get anything worthwhile

I dropped 1000 leaflets off and didn't get a single reply when I started. :(


BUT... I didn't have a website, and ...it was in December!


...so, timing was out, and a website gives people a great way of checking you out before calling.
