Setting up a cleaning company can be both rewarding and challenging. As a self employed worker, you are your own boss and other than paying the usual company and personal taxes, your take home pay is a result of your own hard work, effort and determination.
Outlay cost plays a significant role when opening your own cleaning company. If you are thinking about undertaking domestic cleaning jobs, your outlay will be low as many premises will have their own cleaning products. However, if you plan to enter the commercial cleaning industry, you will need to invest in suitable machinery, transportation, insurance and perhaps staff.
Having the correct tools means that you will be prepared and equipped to undertake your cleaning contracts, but how do you secure and retain customers in the first place?
In the current economic climate, business owners will need to ensure they commit to good quality sales and marketing in order to ensure a long-term flow of work. It’s important to undertake tried and tested techniques such as advertising (online and offline), target tendering and PR.
Sales and marketing should not be an exercise that’s carried out when a business owner has a spare five minutes. It needs to be scheduled in on a daily basis and many people find it difficult to juggle this, and the day to day cleaning work required to keep the company running successfully.
