When I first started out I was advertising on Facebook all the time and got a lot of work from it. Advertising on there these days does my head in. I don't know if it's just me but it seems to be that all of my 'problem' customers come from Facebook. The thing i REALLY hate about it is the way that customers think that they have an always open line of communication to you via Facebook messenger. It's like they think it's a 24 hour helpline. A customer wouldn't text me at 2am about their windows but they think it's perfectly fine to send me a Facebook message (which makes my phone beep) at that time.

I've thought about uninstalling the messenger app but a few of my mates contact me through it so I'll probably keep it.

 

you'll have to send me the woman's name so I know to avoid her.

As much as facebook can be a pita it is still another avenue to look for customers

What will you do without it to get work @Adams0211? ..i know you built a lot of your round from it

I go through phases where I advertise on there for a bit and then don't for ages. I'll keep at it but no need for me to hammer it like I was when I first started out. I'm getting more and more work from word of mouth and from people seeing me working in their street. To be fair, I'm a bit of a part timer at the moment because of the wife's business and childcare so the customers I have at the moment are enough to keep me ticking over but I'll be aiming to push on a bit in the new year as my wife will be slowing down with work because of her being pregnant.

an example might be - its been a stormy week hasnt it,we are working hard ,check out my photo ,one of my lads is smiling because hes goin on holiday very soon
