Well done mate, it takes an awful amount of hard work.

You'll find that all the Facebook enquiries come from Karen's Tracy's & Helen's 

They're are all lazy and just post on a local gossip or neighbourhood pages

"Does anyone know any window cleaners" 

They can't be bothered to Google search for the local trades and Claire pops up with this one is cheap Hun,

They message everyone holding out for the very cheapest of blind quotes while the tumble weed and cowboys come into shot. 

A great tip for gauging the size of a property is the ask them immediately for their address and Google Street View their property to gauge the size, amount of windows and access as those points will potentially save you from under quoting.

 

Stick to your pricing, be firm, be professional

1.canvassing/leafleting

2.sign write your van(BIG LETTERS)

3.offer add ons

4.facebook

5.website

6.advertise in parish magazines in your chosen area

you need to actively look for work until it becomes self sustaining which takes time...years in fact....

They are called Courtney and Shanice around my way.

But the FB lot ain't all that bad, I generally pick up jobs for 4 detached houses on new build estates well priced jobs and usually young hard working people who want a very good and professional windy.
