Hello everyone, I am new to the forum but have been reading all the great information for some time. My girlfriend and I are about to launch a new residential cleaning service. Our goal is not to have employees for some time, but to have a full schedule through the week for her and I. I believe the income will be enough to save up, and eventually have employees. I am wondering if you believe we will be able to generate enough business through google places, newspaper ads, craigslist ads, facebook page, yelp, flyers, word of mouth, etc., or if a website is absoloutely necessary at this time? also how long did it take everyone to get their first clients once they began advertising?
