"Starting A Inexpensive Cleaning Service"
"Quick Easy Residential Cleaning Service"
You can make quick income with a residential cleaning service. Its easy to start up and calls for very little start-up money.Of course there are several cleaning services out there. But not yours! I have few tips on getting started that worked very well for the service my Mother and I had.
Is This Is For You?
It takes man/women power to clean.So make sure this is really what you want to do. Once you've decided this is something you desire to do.Start to doing research! Check out your competitors rates. Cost of cleaning products, and employee wages vs service rates.
"Target An Area or Group"
Advertising is the key. Its best to target or specialize in a certain group. For example New Mothers, Working Moms, Senior Citizens. Never leave anyone residential group out. But we would advertise all types of specials. Our #1 hits were with new Moms, working Mothers, and Senior Citizens. We would come out with weekly specials to cover all residents. We noticed the most demand groups are the groups mentioned above. So we did extra advertising and specials that target our main source of income. New moms 1/2 off 5th cleaning, Senior citizen discount, referral discounts, etc..
Come up with a business plan, cleaning services take little money to start. But the key is quality cleaning products, they don't have to be costly, they must do the job. Have a reserve of money set aside to cover up coming cost. A list of needs start a back up plan for slow periods. Calculate cost of possibly hiring employees. Profit and loss sheets. How will you save to grow income in your business. As well as putting back in your business for supplies,employee payout,etc..
Whether your going brick or mortar. Its best to have a financial plan. Which I've touched on. Don't be quick to run out and get a loan. A lot of people do that and that can end up hurting you in the long run. You have the extra money,and sometimes get reckless because money's there. Since this is something you can start with very little start-up money. I would suggest you save your own money to start it up. Then start a plan my business plan, if you plan to make his your main source of income. Example: Start out your personal cost of living. Cost supplies, and possible employees. Office expenses, which could be something in the future because online advertising is taking over, and a lot of people do home based businesses. If you have the means to save up your own money so your not coming in a business in debt,do so.Save enough money for a minimum of a year, to cover personal and business expenses.To stay a float during slow periods, or any unexpected events. Keep up with proof and lost. Save save put money back and watch your business income grow.
Remember it doesn't matter how much you spend on advertising. Word of mouth can make are break your business.Handle your business as if your the customer....
