The trick is to hire others to do all the cleaning once you get things up and running. This leaves you free to generate new business. There are very simple and inexpensive ways to market your office cleaning accounts

If your starting out on commercial cleaning. Do the obvious ways of getting clients. With little or no maney out of your pocket.

One is door to door. I prefer this because you get to see the person perrsonally. It works. I'm sure every one can agree on that. Plus if your shy. This will get you comfortable with people. This will give you the confidence you need to deal with more and different people down the road.

Craigslist. It's free. Post It. Say this is my business, my services I offer da di da di da. People will respond to you.

Cold calling. IT's another one.

Gets some business cards. Go out find the one that makes the cheapest.

Networking. THe computer free kind. You go to a business that approaches similary the same places you are trying to get but there services are different from yours. So you tell , 'Joe here's my business card. I'll recommend you when something comes up for you (Floor care, or carpet cleaning, plumbing etc. something other than your services. general office cleaning. if that is your service). You recommend me when it deals with my services. Then keep doing that over time. Who knows you can a dozen Joes' recommending clients to you.

Go on your computer to microsoft word. Write out something simple. Business name,a picture, your service. Then write out a bunch of your phone #s on bottom of the paper. Find a place where your are allowed to put one up. People will see it and take yuor #. Just something that simple.

Here's a site that helped me a lot. Lots of useful information on starting a cleaning business. Like licensing, pricing on the job, bid and follow up letter, service agreement etc. It worked for me and another person I helped out.

I also do seo work for some people. I have had a quick look at your site and quickly noticed that there are far too many keywords in your meta tag. You have 38 keywords in there when there should only be about 10-20 or so max or 500 characters (some seo'ers will tell you more is good but from my experience its not).Your text/html ratio is only 7.03%, a little too low and you only have about 49 backlinks to your site. With backlinks, that takes time to build so thats ok.

Hi jaycar,
I am created new web site do you have eny suggestions

Two ways, walk ins or call and schedule appts. I tend to prefer the call as then I will be assured to meet with the correct person and will have a better opportunity of getting the account. This is our method at carpet cleaning orange county

In starting it may difficult to find costumer because you don’t have branding of your business. People will come to you automatic once you have good reputation in market. Furthermore, you need to make good clients, in starting you can tell to your relatives and friends for cleaning project and can offer them some discount or any free service. Apart from this off season cleaning is also a good idea mean you can go to your client in winter season and offer them cleaning project. Generally people don’t like to do cleaning in winter season so it may be beneficial for you.
