4 Ways to Grow Your Carpet Cleaning Business Today

Written by on March 03, 2015

Starting a carpet cleaning business is quite easy, which is why many people give it a shot.

Getting the first few clients might not be that difficult but if you want to continuously grow your business, you’ll need to invest some time into coming up with the best strategy. You have to choose the best option to grow your carpet cleaning business and go for it.

This blog post lists a few great options:

Get a business partner

Most people get partners because they either lack money, emotional support or skills. What about you?

If you don’t have enough money to start the business, you should maybe consider taking a loan? Maybe your spouse can provide you with the emotional support? If you don’t have the right skills maybe you should educate yourself, get a certificate or visit an evening course.

Consider all advantages and disadvantages of having a business partner and whether you need one or not. It can be good to work together but it can also lead to a disaster.

Offer additional services

If you offer services such as area rug cleaning, spot stain removal, minor carpet repair, carpet removal and so on your client base has the potential to double or triple.

Also, if you expand your business in a few more locations you’ll more likely get new clients.

Marketing your carpet cleaning business

As you’ve decided to grow your business it’s time to get your hands on the marketing part of your business.

First of all, build a marketing plan. It’s even better if you write a new business plan and have a well-structured marketing plan in there.

Sign up for business directories and yellow pages, create YouTube videos and work on a website, or write a blog and dominate on the most important social media sites such as Google+, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest.
