Marketing Calendar for Cleaning Businesses

An Ad Club member recently asked me to put together a Marketing Calendar to see a plan for the entire year by dates. So here’s the marketing calendar. This will put the whole picture together for you in a snapshot.

I thought this would be a good start to the year to get some guys thinking about how to plan their marketing. I’ll be putting out my updated Winter Marketing Plan pretty soon with some specifics on these tactics.

How to Get the BEST Commercial Cleaning Accounts

When I started my cleaning biz, one of my TOP goals was to get commercial accounts.

I knew regular, predictable sales would help me build a steady business.

*** The BIG dive EVERY cleaner fears ***

What happens on Dec 26th?  Your sales dive unless you do something now.

Commercial is a great way to fill that void because many businesses have their new budget for the year open and have the money to hire you for cleaning.

Why not get in on the commercial action this January?

Getting PROFITABLE commercial work takes marketing know-how.

You need to target the RIGHT commercial account with the RIGHT message.


The Good News: 

* There ARE commercial accounts that will schedule during the day!

* They WILL hire you in January and February

* They WILL pay you within 30 days or less!

* Many of them NEED cleaning during the week 9am – 5pm.

One of the best times to be in the cleaning business…

…It’s the holiday season!

I LOVE online marketing in my cleaning business.

It’s cheap, but it has limitations.

What I found that works best is a healthy mix of both online and offline marketing.

For most of your clients, you’ll often have better success marketing to them offline.

Especially during the holiday season, this is the BEST time to do postcards.

For most of your clients, you’ll have better success marketing to them offline.

Here are some examples of great holiday postcards.

This month and next are some of the BEST months to advertise. People are getting ready for guest and they need you to help them prepare their home.

All you need to do is communicate the benefits you’ll give them and let them know how you can help meet their needs.

P.S. Yes, use this to get NEW clients. Then use this to build up your brand with your existing clients to get MORE referrals and repeat business.

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.
