Let’s Talk About Boots 🥾
Let's talk boots!........ I used to wear a pair of standard @vans canvass shoes... However these offered zero water resistance and no durability.
So I picked up a pair of @drmartensofficial steel toe boots, specifically "DR MARTENS BRACE SAFETY BOOTS BLACK, SIZE 11" at the Screwfix fair a few months ago..... As far as comfort goes these are amazing, Due to the soles being the same material as the classic doc soles, they are bouncy, supportive and really comfortable to walk in.
They are not advertised as water resistance but I have not found any issues regarding my feet getting wet but I can't imagine they are waterproof like Wellington boots, so keep that in mind.
Due to the tred depth of the bottom of the sole being so deep they have a tendancy to hold on to dirt quite well, so banging the shoes together at the end of the day is a ritual I have got used to 😂(I have a pic of them compared to the depth of a broken in Dr martens 1460 sole to show the difference in depth)
Anyways those are my thoughts and I would love to know what boots everyone else uses... Lemme know below 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼 #windowcleaner #drmartens #drmartensstyle #windowwashing #windowcleaningresource

Thank you for reading this short review.
Here are some reasons why having a website is a must for any business. We will examine three in this blog and in future blogs we will discuss how you can improve your own website on a low budget.
To be a Window Cleaner and to be successful in our window cleaning industry, you do not have to have a website. Many window cleaners have been established for decades and have built up a fine reputation. To be honest all you really need is a bucket, squeegee, applicator and some microfibre clothes and some water and a bit of soap and your away. For example the Window Cleaner who taught me had been cleaning in Richmond for over 40 years, he did not have a website but was successful.
However to start a window cleaning business now you do need a healthy website. According to Yell, 80% of people will look for a service online rather then a paper directory. If you want to grow your window cleaning business you need an online presence. There are lots of free companies online that will get you started. That is what we did at Jarviswindowcleaner. We started with a free website on Weebly and we are still with Weebly today.
Your website is the front door to your window cleaning business. Just like a shop front will explain what the customer is to expect when they enter the shop. Your website will explain, who you are, why the customer can trust your company and what services you provide. You could be the best window cleaner in the world, but if no customers can find your business then you will not get any work, right? Online advertising done professionally will help you get noticed. Of course recommendations are also a great way to get new customers and that will grow too with your website.
Keep up to date! Can you remember when you first heard about the WFP system? That will not work, you thought. Now you have the WFP system and you can not believe we used to climb ladders all day. It is the same with the modern world we live in, you need to keep up to date and have a healthy website site.
Do a health check on your website that will help you understand what you need to work on, next blog we will look at ways you can easily improve the health of your website.

Facebook paid advertising, does it work? Here’s what Jarviswindowcleaner learnt from our first attempt. https://www.jarviswindowcleaner.co.uk/
Our goal was to start 8 conversations, achievable and realistic we believe and to convert 50% of those conversations into sales. Our budget was £30 so not a huge amount just wanted to try it out. That would make a return of £370 with 4 gutter jobs averaging £100 each.
We went for a simple video that we felt would grab attention and tell a story better then a picture. The video was about 10 seconds and the video focused on gutter cleaning because this is the time of year to get gutter cleaning jobs. A picture would have worked too but we decided on a video using an app Video Boost https://theboostapps.com/videoboost/. The age group we went with was 40-62 years old because we wanted to target home owners. We targeted a large area in Surrey and we ran this for 5 days starting on a Monday.
2,762 people reached and only 1 conversation started! Failed completely. But it you don’t try it then you would never know.
What We Learnt
In reflection we should have done more research into Facebook advertising. For example we targeted too big of an area, we should have focused on one or two towns. Next time we would increase the time of the advertising campaign to a month or even two weeks. And a well presented picture might be better then a video or if you can make a 3 second video that might work too. Facebook only preview 3 seconds of a video, the viewer has to click to watch the whole video. There is also Facebook advertising courses for free that might help and you could try Facebook pixel on your website that will give you some feedback.
