Hi Kara, thanks for your comment and question. To start – I’ll email you a FREE PDF copy of my book Discover the Guru in You. I hope you find lots of ideas and strategies to grow and manage your cleaning business! As I always say ‘ You Can Do This – You Really Can!’ There is a lot that goes into effectively growing in today’s janitorial service marketplace. To help, below are some marketing strategies/ideas to keep in mind anytime, but maybe most of all, when in the early years, when you’re getting started: As you can imagine, it’s a good idea to have an detailed marketing strategy with multiple steps that build one on top of the other to attract clients to CALL YOU, to ask for a bid! However, your specific question was on marketing and growing your cleaning business, and in that area, here are a couple ‘keys’ steps: 1. Decide on who you want to clean. Rather than a broad, shotgun approach, we suggest cleaning businesses target a certain type of building or customer ( i.e. medical and professional offices that require 3-5 nights per week cleaning that can be performed in the evening after 5 PM.) 2. Once, you determine who you want to clean, we suggest you build a list of companies that meet that criteria. There are many ways to do this. For example, online business list sites can be helpful in doing this. 3. Next, you can call each location to determine the name of the person or persons responsible for hiring the cleaning service at the buildings on your list. 4. Then, we recommend you begin to send a series of powerful direct-response marketing pieces to the attention of the decision maker (the person in charge of hiring the cleaning service) at the businesses on your targeted list, following a preset schedule.
I want smaller offices , florist medical office not sure how to market them ? I usually call and ask how to become a vendor or if they have anyone cleaning for them . I have been working with property management companies but would prefer the commercial side I have been having a hard time doing that .
