If you’re just starting your cleaning company, you will want to find the cheapest and fastest ways to getting customers. Here are some ways on how to market your cleaning business and get money coming in fast.
Word of Mouth
Word of mouth is a free way to get customers by telling friends and family that you have a cleaning business. One idea is to offer to clean their home for them, and once they see how good of a job you do they will likely tell others about you.
Create a Paper Flyer
Another cheap and quick way to get the word out is by creating a simple printer paper flyer in Microsoft Word or any other software on a computer. Keep it simple by putting your business name, what makes you unique as a cleaning service, a way to contact you (phone number, email, and/or website), and an offer with an expiration date.
Next, figure out what neighborhoods you want to pass the flyers out in. You can pass them out in your neighborhood or in one that you would like to clean homes in.
Once you find out where you want to pass them out, put them in the cubbyhole underneath the mailbox (do not put them in the mailbox itself. It is a federal crime to open someone else’s mailbox) or wedge them in the mailbox flag. You can also wedge them in between the doorknob on the front door of the house or apartment.
For free and low cost marketing ideas I recommend reading Guerilla Marketing by Jay Conrad Levinson. You can check this book out at the library for free or you can always find it on Amazon.
