If you already rank #1, then how would you like #1 and #2? Or better yet, how about the First 4 or 5 spots on google? I’ll tell you how I did it but bare with me, it’s a long one but worth reading if you’re interested.
What I’m going to share isn’t something new. Most of you have heard about this company. Some as myself took a chance and have already claimed my area. I wanted to keep this short and to the point, but there’s just too much I want to touch on. So grab some popcorn.
Windowcleaning.com - I first saw and researched them several months ago when Tory made his post that seemed to go un-noticed to a certain degree. I had heard about them but didn’t understand what they were about. Seeing Tory (whose opinion I highly respect) talk highly of them caught my attention and I did my research. By the way, Thank you Tory
I pulled their website and searched every member’s city with the keywords “window washing, window cleaning and the city” First one I checked was Tory’s city “San Diego” ranking #2 behind his original website. If you search today it ranks #1 in the map placement (at least it does from my computer). San diego is a pretty big city as i’m sure everyone is aware of.
I searched several others and found so so results. But then what really sparked my excitement was when I got to Improved Outlooks cities in Wisconsin. He had 4 different cities done and 2 of them had outstanding results. Milwaukee has the #1 listing in google maps. While Mequon & Oconomowoc (you ready for this) has the first 4 spots in organic listings. The little I know and the money I have put into my original website going after that number one spot, this really caught my attention.
I called windowcleaning.com that night, left a message and Mark returned my call the next day. My question to him was why the guy in Milwaukee ranked so good (in some cases the first four spots) and others members aren’t ranking as well. Marks answer was Gabe in Milwaukee has supplied them with the information they need to produce fresh content. A lot of work I asked? Nope, all he did was get a review and take a picture of the customers house, send it to Mark and they do the rest. Get this though, this simple review and picture is a page of itself and ranks in one of the first four spots.
I claimed several area’s that day and several more later. I now have five websites and pretty much every city/town in my service area locked down preventing any other company from taking them. Four of the five area’s I have websites for are smaller towns, but loaded with very wealthy people. I’ll let you be the judge on how they are ranking. Just google:
Window cleaning Sandpoint
Window cleaning Newport wa
Window cleaning Post Falls id
Window cleaning Hayden id
All four of these were #1 within 4 weeks. Once I sent the pictures and reviews they have been number 1,2,3,4 for the last 3 or 4 months.
My Spokane area hasn’t quite got the number one spot, but if they got San Diego and Milwaukee (Much bigger cities) to number one, there’s no doubt they will get me there. Also my Post falls I sent too many reviews so it went from the first four listings to the first REALLY big listing.
Next question and a concern of mine was my phone hasn’t exactly been ringing off the hook. Well - I did start this in the fall (looking forward to the results in the spring) I have received a dozen or so calls, but having the first four spots should do better than this for me right? I was thinking maybe it was the look of the website people are directed too? This was one of my winter projects to talk to Mark and see what they could do. Just got an update and apparently they have been working on this for the past four months and it’s done. Check out the Louisville ky site. Dejay hasn’t been a member long, already ranking #4 and they have changed the look of the home page. That’s just part of the new update. There’s a lot more to come.
To close this out I’m just going to touch on a couple points
First come first serve. Once an city is taken it’s un-touchable until the member gives it up. You can also lock down other little city/towns for future websites. Even these rank some, just not as well as the actual website areas. If you are interested ask Mark to explain this thouroughly to you - how to lock down areas and why you would want too etc… Or give me a call and I’ll explain my thought process. I’m pretty sure I got this one down
There’s no yearly contract. I think I committed to like 3 months, then it goes month to month. I would ask.
To add fresh content to my website all I do is send them a customer review and picture/pictures.
The domain name is 15 years old (I think) already ranks high very fast and is only going to get stronger. The more members they get the stronger their SEO program and the domain name will be. I’ve said this quite a lot this week - Again, I’m no SEO expert and know very little, but since every member is basically under the original windowcleaning.com/theircity - I think it’s going to strengthen every members website as new members come aboard.
I know having the first spot on google is a pretty big deal. What about the first 4 spots. If you already have that number one spot, you can acheive two things by claiming your area. You could have several of the top spots and you’ll prevent another company from becoming a thorn in your side if you get the area first.
The old website look may not be exactly what everyone is looking for, but in my opinion this company listens to their customers and will continue to update it until it does. I think this is going to be HUGE and wanted to share it with you “the Fine Folks of WCRA”
My main website ranks pretty good for my major city, but here’s what I saw. For some of the smaller towns/cities it doesn’t dominate like I feel it could. This Windowcleaning.com does exactly that.
Have a great weekend!!
The information above is accurate to the best of my knowledge. I would call them to confirm all the details and do your own research.
Also this thread wasn’t made for debate. I’m already a member and look it like this - my opinion is there’s HUGE potential in this site. That’s just my opinion. If you want to check it out, check it out. I’d bet these guys will sell every city. Personally I would rather see WCR members gobble them up.
