Before you decide to engage yourself in small cleaning business, make sure that this kind of works best for you and you are physically fit to enter this job. Itís because cleaning is a tough and tiring work. Furthermore, you need to possess customer relation skills and some basic background on office and accounting. If you think youíre qualified with these stuffs, you can now move on to other essential tips to consider before you get started.

The very first step to begin with is getting your first clients. Bear in mind that most customers will question how long you have been in business and want references. Well, you donít need to create fish stories in trying to impress your customers. Just state the truth and be confident enough. The second step that you need to do is of course, to advertise. Before doing so, decide the type of image that you wish to describe on your advertising material. The best advertising method that you can do is to create a website.  Your image is very important. Be consistent with all your advertising. If you have a logo, be sure to use it on all your advertising materials. I think it is best to have a website developed before you start advertising. If the internet is not your thing, you can do this on local newspaper and come up with an eye catching ad. Make sure to sell your quality and services which canít be found on other companies.

Not all people read the newspaper, so a nice idea to make your business known to public is by giving flyers. You can put it on difference places such as local groceries stores and businesses. And of course, donít forget to bring business cards with you and start passing it on your possible clients.
