Recommended Posts

Hi all im considering buying a gutter vac and good pressure washer but dont wanna buy them and not gain much work for them.its a huge outlay..whats the most cost effective andvsuccessful way to gain customers for this kind of work? I already list these services on my tickets i post when iv cleaned windows but havnt had much response from existing customers.

Iv seen a sign near a tesco advertising gutter vacs from £35 per 3 bed house might be worth a try. If you can ask a local business near a main through road that fills with traffic during rush hour and offer a few quid for the sign to go up. A graphics place will only charge you £20-£50 for a sign

I just built myself a website & got all my work through that to start with. Then came the recommendation and repeat business. Still get new enquires most day's from the site too especially when it rains. :Image13:

I bought just a domain name from lcn https://www.lcn.com/ then set up a http://www.000webhost.com/ account so get free web hosting.

 

All I pay for is domain name renual every 2 year which is about £7... that's it.

 

You can either use one of their templates and wisiwig editors to build a website or upload one built by whatever web suite you prefer to use that is compatible with the hosting account.

Do you find many are requesting a window cleaner? I've joined lots of local selling groups and searched pages but cannot find one person actually looking for/requesting a window cleaner. I've been putting posts up which gets me maybe 2 jobs a week. Maybe I'm missing a trick somewhere along the line?
