Office Cleaning

Started my own office cleaning business. I have one account that is it. I have been door to door and mailed sales letters. No response. I have also cold call for emails. No response. What am I doing wrong?

You need clients and referrals IMO. I would invest in providing cleaning on a discounted basis to qualified customers to prove yourself. Tell the clients exactly what you are doing and that you are doing it to build your business, create a referral base, and break into the market. They will lean toward wanting to help you. Once you have a portfolio things will get easier.

Contact potential clients with discounts and special offers. Make sure your current clients have great experience from your services and ask them to write a review for your services or website.

Establishing an online presence is key. Take advantage of free online directories like BookMyCity, Google, etc. to promote your business. Consider offering online booking. This may attract clients who need more convenience and flexibility.
Try promoting some special offers in your letters, such as a prepaid package of cleanings at a discounted rate or discounts for customers who refer others to you. Or even online booking of a free first clean.

Do you have experience using online booking? If so can you share how much it improved your results?
