How do I start and make a round efficient?

Hi guys, 

 

I've used the search bar but can't really find what I'm looking for as I can't really explain the question in a few words. 

Basically what I am wanting to know is, when I have started advertising, canvassing and building customers, how can I then fit those customers into an efficient schedule. 

I am looking to offer 4 weekly cleaning and for example if I pick up 5 customers on Street A on Monday, then canvass Street B on Tuesday.  Street C next Monday. 

Over time some more customers from street A decide they want my services and call me up asking for me to fit them in. 

I obviously don't want to go to Street A 4 times a month just to fit them in, so my question is how are you guys approaching this situation? Would the best route be to just tell the customer that I am scheduled to clean their street on X day each month? making them wait?

 

I feel like I'm missing something super simple here, but want to get off on the right foot! 

 

Thanks for taking the time to read, 

Jake

Depends what the customer wants. They can have them done now, and the next one will usually then be late to get it synced with the existing jobs, or they can wait till i'm round next.

 

Just go with 6 weeks from the off. 4 weeks ends up being too often for most customers, so you end up offering 8 weeks too and then you are forever messing around with schedules.

Yes what you have said is what I did when I started the only other option if you have spare time is to dk it straight away then give it a miss when you do the street so the next clean will be a bit longer but most dont mind doing it this way the jobs in the bag and they won’t get anyone else .

Perfect, thanks for clearing that up guys. I thought I had the right idea but better safe than sorry. 

 

Is that the general consensus to do 6 weeks instead of 4? To be fair I did think a lot of people would struggle to warrant as often in the current climate. 

 

I appreciate it a lot 🙂

I think time scale is dependent ware in the country you are down hear most want 4 weekly , we only offer 4 or 8 weekly for domestic , but different areas seam to want different things
