WCR rocks!!! Im headed into my third summer of window cleaning. My second as a business owner. All I can say is that Ive learned so much from this forum that wouldve taken me years to figure out on my own. Experience is everything but being able to ask the veterans and learn from peoples past mistakes is priceless.
wayne805 who posts here occassionally is actually one of my competitors but he has helped me out tons over the last year . Helped my get set up with a WFP and has just been a great resource. He saw one of my posts and called me. Thanks man!
Lately I’ve really been taking a closer look at what brings in those new customers. We’ve been doing flyers, 3 upscale direct mail magazines to $100,000.00 income homes, BNI group, asking current customers for referrals, cold calling on businesses etc. I have yet to really narrow it down to one that is really the best return. Anyone have a particular method which has had spectacular results?? Right now I figure a little bit from a lot of sources is the answer
looking at yur pic?.. Try shaving. Just messin man . I only work on referrals. No crew 2 worry about so as it comes works well. Average about 40 new continual clients each year. Reward your clients well who refer u. Many seem 2 think that a $25.00 gift card is the way 2 go… Many of my clients wouldn’t wipe the dog crap from the bottom of their shoes w/ $25. All I am saying is, make it worth yur client’s time 2 talk about u. And always do great work, impress
If you’re looking for a #1 proven marketing strategy, I think I have some advice for you:
Write Paul (CFP) a check for $100 and mail it to him. When he receives it, he’ll call you and talk to you one-on-one for $100 worth of his time.
(He’s expensive, so don’t count on this being a long phone conversation)
I’m actually not kidding. Finding a mentor is a great way to short-cut this marketing stuff, and get some focused, effective efforts on track ASAP.
Or you can check out my forum, if Paul’s busy
The truth is, lifting one heavy weight one day doesn’t make big meaty, muscular arms, but lifting them regularly, the right amount, the right way, the right speed, especially with the help of a personal trainer mixed in, can produce astounding results very quickly.
Chris is also extremely knowledgeable with this marketing stuff, and guys like Curt and Eric are very creative.
