After helping out a friend clean his customer's homes for quite some time he was finally ready to call it quits for health reasons. He asked me to take his accounts and i agreed. My wife and i decided that if we were going to do it, we were going to go all in and make something out of the business, so we invested in all the equipment, became legal with the state and the feds, became insured and bonded. We have a website, signage for the vehicles, a facebook page and have paid for advertising as well as done some mailings and joined the local Chamber of Commerce.
My biggest question is about pricing. All of our existing clients came with contracts and prices in place. But as a business looking to do more residential cleanings, as well as gather as many commercial office cleaning accounts as we can to make this all fly, how do the rest of you decide on prices? Any advice is appreciated.
