Posted by matt (matt), 15 February 2004My brother runs a Office, so i get free printing / photocopying
i asked him to do me some A4 flyers just before christmas, so he did me 100
this time i redesigned the flyer to get 2 per A4 sheet, great i thought, thats 200 i will get done
so i e.mail him, and ask him to do as many as he can afterall its free
he arrived today, with 7500 sheets, thats 15000 flyers
looks like i will be putting out flyers in the whole of the south might even get up north if i have time
15000 flyers, what am i going to do with all of them
Posted by Sunshine (Sunshine), 15 February 2004...get out there and start posting em. Your not going to earn any ££££ if they are sat in the van
We did 900 leaflets and only got 3 replies to start with...but we now have a work coming in.

Posted by Londoner (Londoner), 21 February 2004Keep them. they will not be wasted. Part of any sucessful window cleaning business should be the continual process of improving your book. Customers move, die etc and need to be replaced.
Other customers can be quietly dropped when you get better ones to replace them
Posted by gibbouk (gibbouk), 21 February 2004never expect instant results with flyers. logic says that the day you post them is a rainy day. cant work so post leaflets. you punter reads the leaflet looks out of the window and thinks not today its raining, some file them some bin them. i had a call last week at my mums, a number that was on leaflets 4 years ago.

You're obviously doing something right. Fancy sharing what's on YOUR flyer?
Just being Nosey, you realise
Posted by sc (sc), 24 February 2004Could anybody please email me a copy of any flyers etc. that they use. I would be very grateful and will email back the flyers I have used in the past. Any comments on the success of your flyers would be appreciated aswell.
