I've just signed up to this forum and I have a question. This question has puzzled me for years. I have been cleaning carpets asa part time business for over 20 years. I currently use a portable cleaner with 200 psi and a rotovac wand. I get pretty good results not perfect but pretty good. I have repeat customers I have some referals. The problem is I have almost zero comercial and fell lucky if I have 1 job a week. I happened to meet two guys working for stanley steamer from the next town over, they cover our area as well. They have 15 vans with each doing from 4 to 10 jobs a day each . I am not greedy but I would like to have just afew more jobs.I have done many things but little has seemed to help. people seemed satisfied with my work - what are these big guys doing right in a small way I would like to copy to have just a little more business  Thanks

Pretty hard to know what they're doing , but as a guess I would say either hitting the pavement giving demos or most likely telemarketing.

It is all about the NAME!

You need to get your Business Name out there and Everywhere.

There are many free ways to advertise your business by Bartering your services.

You can go to restaurants and tell them you will give them better price on carpet cleaning if they will advertise your business on menu, wall space, To Go flyers and what ever will work!

You have the ability to this in so many places of business!

That is just my 2 Cents!

IF i were to ask the majority of customers who called me why they called me, they would all say the same thing.  "I was going to call stanley, but searched carpet cleaner on the internet and found you"

Its there name and the massive spending they do on advertising. 

I dont predict the future or sell glides, am I allowed on this site?
