General Cleaning Forum / Re: Biocide help

Seems they dont like the price haha. Constantly texting me about others in the area who will benefit from it as well etc etc up until they receive the text after visiting and speaking to them. (I sent text later as head was a shed, due to illness)
Funny, I've not heard anything back

"Phone System" - can you expand a bit on that?

Is this how you pre-qualify leads.

We've started emailing terms and conditions before we do the work and leaving a copy on the first cleans.

Richard iSparkle's words are wise.

I've been through the mill on having bad customers and if growth is your mission, then it is way better to grow at a measured pace, and with quality customers only. Otherwise you end up working like a slave for zero profit.

If you have a marina nearby then a good boat engineer will most likely have the diagnostic equipment for a Webasto.
Servicing although simple (usually they coke up) certainly wonít be cheap.

I lose a lot of the potential customers, about 40% of them, because I insist they set up a DD before we do the work.

On the upside, I do at least have a solid cashflow from the customers we get on board, and I don't ever have to chase payment after I've got the mandate set up.

I've decreased the prices on 3 beds and increased the prices on 5 bed houses for this year and started offering a 6 weekly option.

One sale  per hour is good going...  :)

I've not down much canvassing but when I have I used to average about 1 customer an hour.

1 in 3/4 hours is that because of your pricing do you think? I suspect you would be way higher than average in your area?

You can watch me clean a dirty sofa arm here > https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t0FYHhRpLy8

Upholstery is really down to elbow grease, pre-spray, agitate, rinse, then again and again if it's really dirty.
