We just announce our next Telephone Discussion Forum topic at TheJanitorialStore.com. We'll be talking on November 13th about Survival Strategies for a Recession. One of the things we'll discuss is ways to start thinking outside of the box when marketing your cleaning services.
A member just shared this story in our discussion forum this morning and I thought it was a great example of thinking outside of the box. She had a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony through her Chamber of Commerce for her cleaning business. Most ribbon cuttings I've seen through Chambers have been the business owner and maybe an employee or two, Chamber ambassadors and a photographer - that's it!
She advertised the event in the local paper and mentioned that if they showed up they'd get a $10 off coupon. She had a lot of people show up. She also invited her clients, insurance agent and advertising person who did a phenomenal job on her car wrap. Since she is a service provider for Cleaning for a Reason she also got some great publicity for her work doing cleaning for breast cancer patients.
