Cleaning Companies

Home/Industries/Cleaning Companies

The Internet has spurred considerable competition in the cleaning industry. Businesses and consumers alike now demand lower service costs, yet superior solutions and are quicker to switch providers based on dissatisfaction or better price points. With low start up costs and the ability to easily post advertisements for cleaning services on popular platforms like Google and Craigslist, new customer acquisition has become even more challenging.

As marketers for cleaning companies, we know that this competitive landscape provides substantial opportunities for proactive businesses to dominate their geographical market based on a professional presence that maximizes lead generation and sales opportunities.

  • Craft a marketing focused website and attractive online perception that encourages and guides visitors to conversion.

Industry Marketing Opportunities

There are many opportunities within the cleaning industry that companies can currently take advantage of to improve the marketing, lead generation, and customer acquisition efforts of their business.

  • Many cleaning company websites are not professional and attractively clean, nor make it easy to validate and convert visitors.
  • There is plenty of room and opportunity on Google page one to attain ranking for valuable, lead generating search queries.
  • There is a big difference between a cleaning company and a cleaning brand. It’s easy to stand out, be noticed, and remembered.
  • Average cost-per-click on main search platforms for cleaning keywords is high because of lack of on-page optimization efforts.
  • Few take advantage of the power of online reputation, leading to easier dominance and visibility of those that do.
  • Leads qualify a business based on their perception, reputation, and marketing, lessening the effect of competitive pricing.
  • Minimum wage increases will further level the competition in terms of costs leading to greater marketing relevancy.
