Posted by John_Flynn (John_Flynn), 28 March 2004Story of my life, I just lost my Betts, Hahaha
Posted by lenpg (Len Gribble), 28 March 2004So far I have used one of Mark’s (working mans club) made some changes sent out about 30 Saturday week ago quoted on 5 guaranty 4 but must go via the committee I also pick up two pubs by word of mouth.
Once again thanks Mark
Mike now I’m envious I only got back Friday week ago wish I were still there even with the rain. If you are in the San Pedro (Marbella) area I have a Ninja there which you are welcome to use, they love brit cc their.
Posted by skywalker71 (skywalker71), 30 March 2004Hi
Im still in need of these can anyone send me some please to firstname.lastname@example.org Many thanks
Posted by squeaky (squeaky), 30 March 2004Have a look at www.ocibr.com 'porthole for cleaners' you will have to register , click on downloads , they have an amazing amount of stuff that you will find useful.You can put something of your own on the site for other people to use then whatever you use does not cost you anythng.
I have used a fair bit of stuff that Mark Betts has put on there (thanks Mark),and it works wonders.
Hope this helps
Posted by MB (Mark Betts), 30 March 2004Gosh John I havent heard that litte Quip about my surname since I was in Infant school !!!!!!
Your wit is soooooooo sharp.
Posted by MB (Mark Betts), 30 March 2004Guys
If anyone wants any letters or stuff to make it easier for me can you please e mail me at email@example.com
as i am getting a lot of requests via private message and its gettin a bit confusing who I have sent what etc etc so if you e mail me I can just press reply.
ps also please can you say where you are from
Posted by MB (Mark Betts), 30 March 2004Sky
Dont think your hotmail account will take large files.
Posted by mike_halliday (mike_halliday), 30 March 2004Mark, one day you´ll learn your lesson, never offer anything on a public forum because you´ll get 20 private messages asking for it
If I was honest fancy sales letters don´t work
if you want to send out letters to aquire work then just get your letter headed paper, and type out a simple letter asking if they need the services of a proffessional carpet cleaner then send them to small bussiness where the boss or manager opens the mail ( not a secetrary)
flash, clever salesletter may look good but they can´t make someone have their carpets cleaned if they arent dirty.
Senor Mike ( still raining )
Posted by Ian_G. (Ian_Gourlay), 30 March 2004A sles consultant who I paid £150 told me exactly the same as Mike has told you for free.
Posted by John_Flynn (John_Flynn), 30 March 2004Who do you give the work to Mike, when they answer YES I do require the services of a Professional Carpet Cleaner??
Posted by squeaky (squeaky), 30 March 2004They obviously work for some and not others , I have always used them and it works for me , I can only speak for myself but I send out about 70 to 100 a month (2nd class )and get better results some months than others but it does depend on who I am writing to that month and the time of year etc, it is the repeat business 6/12 months later that is handy.

Rather than send me all that Marketing stuff can you just send me the money.
Cut out all that paperwork, postage etc.
see you tommorow
Posted by Shaun_Ashmore (Shaun_Ashmore), 30 March 2004Mike I've just come back from Tenerife and the weather there was beautiful, oh well luck of the draw.
