If you are already trying to put together your cleaning business portfolio، then this already means that you are really close to starting your home cleaning business.
What you put in your portfolio will be your client’s way of evaluating your skills and expertise as a cleaner. So you will include photographs، some brochures, flyers, leaflets, some letters of recommendation and some testimonials from your previous clients, and if possible, some newspaper clippings introducing you as a cleaner or your newly formed company. But then، the next question is, if you are a new cleaner and the start of your cleaning business is not yet complete، how do you achieve these?
Gathering materials for your portfolio can be a dilemma if you don’t know what to do. Here are some tips on how to get hold of these subjects, even if you’re just starting out as a scavenger.
What you need are pictures of your work. So it doesn’t mean it has to be a customer’s home. What is important is that it is a testament to your work. So you can clean your house and take some pictures of it. You can also ask your close friends and family members if you can clean their homes, in exchange for permission to take pictures of the areas or rooms you serviced and include them in your portfolio.
The good news about this strategy is that friends and family members are people who are very willing to help you when you start your new business. If there’s anything they can do for your cleaning business, startups and all, they’re definitely happy to do it.
In fact, you can even tell your customers who are looking at your portfolio that a particular photo is of your home where you believe certain products are best at cleaning certain items.
This is actually the cleaning business marketing. If you believe in your products and services, if they are good enough for your home, then people will have more faith in your services as well.
Another cleaning business marketing strategy is to have testimonials or letters of recommendation from clients or those to whom you have provided cleaning services.
Just like photos, you can clean the homes of your friends and family in exchange for an honest testimonial. This is customer feedback on paper. You can add new paying customers later.
Well, house cleaning business is also a business with growing trends. So keep your portfolio updated with certificates from workshops and seminars on it.
