Marketing a Cleaning Services Business

Marketing a cleaning services business can be a daunting task for new entrepreneurs. But with consumer demand on the rise, marketing skills are becoming increasingly important for cleaning services business owners and managers.

In a cleaning services business, a great business model doesn't guarantee solid revenues.

Purpose in marketing is the key to success in this space. The most successful cleaning services businesses achieve market dominance through the careful execution of deliberate strategies. Your company is one-of-a-kind. But your marketing strategy will need to include a handful of features that are common to the industry's top performers.

ROI

Good marketing is expensive. ROI concerns should be at the forefront of your mind when you think about the many ways you can promote your cleaning services business.

Mailings and other direct marketing strategies are common, but to realize maximum ROI we recommend purchasing consumer or B2B mailing lists from a reputable provider. Using the web, you can easily find the leading mailing list providers with an extensive database of targeted and updated sales prospects.

Make Sure You Have a Good Business Sign

Effective signage gives your brand constant exposure in its geographic market. Despite the fact that cleaning services businesses come in all shapes and sizes, every company in this space should thoughtfully consider what your signage says to potential customers. Is your sign visible and attractive? Does it reinforce your brand and value proposition? Does your signage invite customers to take the next step or does it simply annoy them? These are the kinds of questions you'll need to ask about both exterior and interior sign elements.

Since the signage for cleaning services businesses has unique characteristics, you'll want to make sure to adhere to industry norms as well as local zoning requirements. Talk with somebody who knows a lot about business signage advice and get their input before you create new business signs.

Directories

A directory listing may be one of the best ways to increase the visibility of a cleaning services business. When all of your competitors are listed in a directory, you have no choice in the matter. To keep pace, competitive businesses must include the same directories in their plans for marketing cleaning services businesses to both broad and targeted customer bases. Paid directory listings are gaining steam in some sectors. But paid listings don't necessarily translate into better results - many free directories have just as much firepower as premium ones. Regardless of whether it is a premium or free listing opportunity, every directory needs to be evaluated on its own merits. As consumers demonstrate a preference for online channels, make sure your listing include your company's web address and possibly even information about your social media presence.
