Make Some Extra Cash: Consider Starting a Cleaning Business

Whether you need some extra cash or you’re looking for a profitable, full-time job, consider starting a cleaning business. Read more about what steps you need to take in order to excel in this new venture.

Invest in Products

Cleaning companies need an arsenal of products that they use on and within the homes that they clean. You’ll want to do your research before you make investments in these. Decide if you care if products are toxic. If you don’t, learn how you can keep your body and lungs safe while you use them. If you do care, find appropriate nontoxic products that won’t break the bank. Next, consider the price of buying in bulk vs. not. If you have already developed some clientele, it may be financially wise to buy in bulk. If you still need to market yourself and your services, buy individual products to start.

Market Services

The next step in starting your business is to market your services. Of course, word-of-mouth can carry your business far. However, it’s crucial to market yourself at the start of having a business. Marketing is a crucial reality if you’re considering starting a cleaning business. This is how people will hear about your business in the first place. Hire someone to help you with this if it feels like an overwhelming undertaking. Utilize social media, such as Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. In today’s day and age, you won’t need fancy equipment to accomplish your marketing goals. Research search engine optimization (SEO) so that you can reach as many users as possible in your posts.

Improve Client Experience

Try to make every service a one-of-a-kind experience for your customers. Go above and beyond and let them know you appreciate them entrusting you with cleaning services. Whether you’re starting a home-cleaning business or a power washing business, make sure you stand out in your marketplace. Try to leave clients meaningful notes. Put your name on it with the services you provided. Add something personal to the note that shows you remember something unique about them. If you’re cleaning someone’s house, chocolates on a pillow or even fresh flowers for their space will also be a nice touch. It’s like a cherry on top of your services. Your customers may start to look forward to these special touches every time you come to clean.
