How to start your own cleaning service
I stumbled upon this site on accident. Still a bit confused on what's it all about. But if it's what I'm thinking, then I might be in the right place. I'm struggling to make ends meet here in my small town. So I was looking to offer services doing various tasks for my local community in order to make some extra income. Anything from babysitting, house cleaning and pet sitting. I don't work for a company. I don't even think there's a cleaning service in my town. So I'm looking to offer my services on my own. My question is, how do I start? I was thinking about putting up flyers around my neighborhood advertising my services, put an ad in a community-wide bulletin, or use social media, like facebook, to try to gain business. But I think the best approach would be to go door to door and talk with people. I'm a little afraid that some may just find this annoying and I might be wasting my time. Has anyone tried this with success? And another question. How much do you charge for cleaning services? I was thinking a flat rate fee of $50 dollars per cleaning. Or is that too much? I really need the extra income. So I'm sorta desperate here to come up with ideas. Thanks.
