How To Start A Cleaning Company Without Any Money
Same Day Carpet Cleaning Marina del Rey — When many people decide to start a business, one of the major mistakes they make is spending much too much money up front, and then when the bills arrive and the firm isn’t producing enough money yet, their efforts eventually collapse. Starting a business with little or no up-front money is one approach to get around this challenge.
This may be done with a variety of enterprises, and numerous books and periodicals devote space to discussing them. In business how-to periodicals, headlines like “100 Low-Cost Startups” are prevalent. We’ll look at one of these low-cost enterprises in this article: the cleaning business.
There are several keys to starting a cleaning business with no money. The first and most important point is that you should NOT, under any circumstances spend money until you absolutely have to. It may sound strange, but it’s an obvious point that people miss. They think (wrongly), “I’m going into business, so I need a new computer, a new desk, some office supplies, files, cleaning supplies, a dedicated phone line…”, and the list goes on. This is not just wrong thinking, its bad thinking. It’s thinking that will cause your business to go broke before it even gets off the ground. Do some businesses require a big upfront investment? Sure they do. But a cleaning business is NOT one of them!
The second key to starting a cleaning business with nothing is being sure to start the right type of business to fit your goals, and your budget (or lack thereof). For example, you wouldn’t want to start a business that requires a lot of expensive equipment like a floor-care service. It would be difficult if not impossible to start a floor-care service with no budget. However, it is possible to start an office cleaning business or a home cleaning service with no money. The supplies you need are much less, and it’s possible that you already have many of them.
To get your first customer, the third key is to use free methods and resources (s). Suppose you’re launching a home-based cleaning service and want to clean an area in which you live. Only your time will be required for this, and it will allow you to not only get your name out there, but also to get in touch with your prospects and better understand their needs.
To employ what you have in terms of supply and commercial resources, use the fourth and final key. This implies you should have a look around your house to see what you can use to help you launch your business. You’ve got a fax machine, do you? Great. You have access to a tool. Do you have a phone? Perfect. Hopefully you get the point here. Just utilize what resources you have, and if need be, get creative. Find ways to save money.
Many people over-complicate and under-plan for their businesses and as a result they completely miss the four key points mentioned here that are necessary to start a cleaning business on little or no budget. It might seem over-simplified, but it’s really not. If you apply the four ideas mentioned here to their fullest, you will be able to get started cleaning with very little… and if you’re smart, probably nothing. Think through each ahead of time, and plan how you will tackle each key point. By doing so you’ll have set yourself up to start a business for next to nothing.
