Window Cleaning Issues / Re: Wildfire canvassing
« Last post by jo5hm4n on Today at 11:38:57 am »
Thats wildfires policy, payment only after first clean.

Was meaning to ask how you got on with him because i also spoke to him about Canvassing told me he was hoping to come up at some point to North Wales, said he would get back to me several times but never did.  I can appreciate the distance from where he is located, but would of been easier for him to just say no to me rather than say yes then not get back to me.

Oh well  ;D ;D ;D

FFS!!! 1 man 2 hours 72 easy! Next job!
Gotta say that's very cheap if you're sending an employee. Does that include VAT?

Shouldn't be climbing on roofs ignoring h&s

Hope the guy is ok but no sympathy for being an idiot

Or is that a bit harsh  :-[
No worse than using somebody's misfortune for spammy links.

Cant remember my first customers but will never forget my first poles a Xtel fiberglass 36 footer with a brick on the top  is something you never forget closely followed by a 25ft that was actually 23ft Brodex Hydra alloy.
My arms still ache thinking about them.

Window Cleaning Issues / Re: Setting up a second base
« Last post by Mick Kent on Today at 10:31:10 am »
TV and leaflets. Nothing else now. Facebook, adwords, radio are all a waste of time.

We will use the profit from base 1 to grow base 2. It will require 2 million leaflets over a 2 year period.  Aprox 230k investment over that period.

Steve, 10 vans with us will be more like 60-65K a month. So 2 bases target will be 120-130k a month.

Its all services combined but mostly windows.

Is 65k a month not enough to be turning over then no? Surely there is over 20k a month profit there.
A million every 4 years.

That aside you surely dont lack ambition or motivation, total fair play for what you have built up and achieved.

I found my first pole the other day (could not throw it away) A nice orange fibre glass thing with a red broom like brush head.  I picked it up and took a double take on it thinking "wow. How the hell did I mange to work with this? Heavy!"
