Question by kimberlygrichard: Good ideas for getting the word out about my “home based cleaning business?”?
I’ve started my own cleaning service and I’m having a hard time getting the word out about it. I’ve printed up tons of flyers and have walked around my neighborhood putting them on doors (since its illegal to put anything in mailboxes), and I’m still not getting calls. Any quick, inexpensive ideas?

Simply post it in public free spaces…. Make a flyer.. If you have Microsoft go to Microsoft.com and under “templates” there’s tons of free downloads pick one and customize it to your needs… Then print/make copies and post… Library, grocery stores, retirement centers, rec. centers. Board of Education… Local newspapers.. They may charge a small fee but, they reach many people… There’s also craigslist.. It’s free and most people know about it.. Just be careful as with anything involving strangers ! Let friends/family know. Especially, with increased cleaning and the holidays coming up offer to help your friends and family for a small “fee” maybe do a couple rooms to help them with the holiday entertaining.. Check the local schools PTA moms/dads. Local churches/community centers… Those are all good places to start… Good luck
