See if Your Cleaning Ad Sucks

See details on Hitman’s Ad Club Here.

Have you wondered why your cleaning advertising didn’t do well?

Maybe you got zero response?

There’s usually a reason why things went wrong.

I just shot a short video that gives you a quick way to determine whether or not your ad is any good.

This goes for all online ads on Facebook, Adwords, email newsletters, and websites…along with offline ads on postcards, EDDM mailers, and other marketing.

How I Got Into the Cleaning Business

I recently met with a coaching member who is starting a cleaning business.

He’s only 21. He reminded me a lot of myself when I started.

You may need to hear this, because I want to show you that if I can do it, you can too. I had nothing to start with.

I was in college, majoring in advertising.

I REALLY wanted to start a business. Any business.

And I did NOT want to work for someone else.

I had worked with a “splash and dash” carpet cleaning company for two months, so I felt I had some experience. At the time, I was working at a hotel making barely over minimum wage.

I had nothing to lose.

So, I got out my shiny new credit card and charged a $10,000 brand new truck mount. Then, I bought a decent looking used van for $1,000.

I was in business!

But I had no customers. However, I did do my marketing homework. I still had A LOT TO LEARN.

I developed a strategy. Then I developed marketing tactics that started with newspaper ads and a direct mail campaign to homeowners in high-end neighborhoods. Then, I developed Internet marketing that brought in lots of great clients.

It’s what worked for me.

Ten years later, I started Hitman Advertising.

I put my entire strategy outlined in my “Secrets” package.

Right now, you can get my “Secrets” package at 50% OFF for a short time:

I went from ZERO to $4,000 a month in no time. Shortly thereafter
I was doing $10,000, then $20,000, $30,000, $40,000, $50,000.

And it all started with ONE simple media targeted at the right

For the past 10 years, I’ve been helping cleaners all over the world build a steady, profitable cleaning biz. And now I want to help you do it too!

Marketing for Back to School Week

It’s the week most cleaners dread.

…Back to School week.

Moms and Dads are spending all their money and time on getting their kids ready to go back to school.

This means they have NO time and NO budget for cleaning.

My best advice to you…

***Do NOT stop marketing during a predicted slow down***

Your cleaning business may suffer worse than you think.

And since your competition may not be marketing hard during these weeks, you can quickly and easily dominate.

I’ve put together a new video with some ideas to help.

Watch the video above.

P.S. These ideas are for both online and offline marketing. I highly suggest you do both if you want to keep busy.

Thanksgiving is When I Saw REAL Profit in the Cleaning Business

Sign up for the Ad Coaching Club Here

Back in November 2001…merely months after September 11th.

The economy was terrible. But I needed money.

My wife gave me notice that we needed to buy a house because our current house wasn’t suitable for our one-year-old who just started walking.

I needed to come up with a QUICK $10,000 for a down payment.

This was $10k on top of all our other bills and recoup from the slow down after September 11th.

Back then, it was only me and my assistant tech on the truck.

So I put together a solid marketing plan and banged it out.

I earned the extra $10k + another $5k for cushion.

That was the first time I REALLY saw big profit in my cleaning business.

I’d only been in business for a couple years and it was the first time I saw the rewards in repeat clients, referrals, and a my sales system.

How did I do it?  First, I had a goal I needed to meet.  Second, I had a plan.

What did I do? First, I marketed to my current clients so I could:

* Get more referrals

* Make sure they called ME instead of my competition

* Implement a plan to up-sell and build for the future

And I concentrated on getting NEW clients who paid my higher prices:

* No cheap, coupon based advertising

* New clients in high-end neighborhoods

* Using predictable, profitable marketing

This is the time to make maximum profit. But you MUST be ready! NEW clients don’t come banging your door down unless you plan for them to come.

Like past presidential elections, this election will keep your clients glued to their televisions and political web posts.

But for your cleaning business, this election could be worse than years past.

Your clients may get so involved with the election that they put cleaning on hold.  After all, people don’t start thinking about holiday cleaning until November.

What are you doing to stay busy this October?

Why not remind them about cleaning with a humorous political ad campaign to your clients and prospects via mail, email, and Facebook?

See the “Make America Clean Again” campaign in the video above.
