You will also need to have a professional logo designed for you. Your commercial window washing logo will be used on ALL of your documents and business memorabilia. You should use a logo on your website, receipts, invoices, fliers, postcards, and business cards. A logo is very important and will help you get your name out their. If your not familiar with brand marketing then I recommend you do research on the subject after your logo is made. Make sure your logo is not too cartoonish or childish, you want to be taken seriously so it needs to be extremely professional. I recommend the name of your company and logo to be short and easy to remember, you want everyone to remember the logo even if they saw your commercial window cleaning business card months ago.
The last tip I will give you is the need for discipline to do research on your customer and your commercial window cleaning competition. Who is your competition? What are they doing? What are they not doing? Where are they located? What area do they service? How about your target audience? What are you doing to your marketing pieces to get them to call you? How are you selling to them personally? What do they like and dislike? Every last one of these questions need to be answered in detail if your going to be successful. Do NOT take these questions lightly, if you deiced to take the research aspect of your commercial window cleaning business lightly then you are destined to have problems in the future. I hope these commercial window washing business tips have helped you as much as they have helped me with my own window cleaning business.
