So first of all I am not giving up. That being said. Today was my first day on foot going door to door selling my window cleaning services. First of all I was pooping myself and I stuttered like crazy for the first half of the day. I eventually got better. One business I quoted was 25$ using 1.25$ per pane standard. The guy said well we have someone that drives here from a town that is almost 2 hours away and does our business for 12$. I said I def can not beat those prices but if he ever stops showing up feel free to give us a call. After that, I continued my day. I prob gave quotes to 20 businesses today. Each and every business of course has a window cleaner already. Though you could not see out of the windows without chiseling mud and dust off the windows. Leave the card and move on. I did have some slight interest though. I plan on following up with those individuals. One of my last store fronts I talked with today was very awesome. Of course they already had a window cleaner but they was not happy with the dedication from the company. She stated that she would love a more dedicated company to do the work but the company that does do the windows is a family friend. She did give us a hot lead to a church she does the finances for and requested a bid due to nobody wanting to clean the windows at the church. I am going to post another topic under the bidding section for this. I need help!! It is pretty large but they are actively seeking someone to do the windows.
I have a few questions. When you guys are going after store fronts how the heck do you book the individuals. They all just stuck out their hands to take the card. Not one person said yes and write me in your calendar. Also the lady that stated she was not happy with her current service was willing to give information about the current window cleaners. I bid the job at 10$ outside only once a week. With a additional bid about insides when requested. She said the display cases only get cleaned inside quarterly or twice a year. When I asked how much she is paying now she said 30$!!! That is outside only for 4 decent windows and the door. I instantly felt like the bucket Bob with my prices but hell not even 1 job locked down at a average of 10$ for a small store front weekly. These guys are selling small store fronts for 30$!! UGHHHH I suck lol. HOW???
