14 Free House Cleaning Flyers For Any Business
House cleaning is a multi-million-dollar business that keeps countless hard-working people gainfully employed. As lifestyles change, with both spouses earning while working longer hours, houses are increasingly cleaned by professionals who specialize in this often tedious and sometimes complicated job – yes, it’s complicated: did you know that cleaning fluid that you use for your bathroom floor can damage your counter-top? Cleaning professionals know such things.
In the United States, Merry Maids is a nationally-recognized brand-name in the house-cleaning business. Merry Maids did not always enjoy the same profile it does today. Rewind a decade or two and few people had even heard of them. They raised their profile with – besides offering great service at fair prices – aggressive advertising and smart publicity. One of these techniques was to use simple house-cleaning flyers!
Two decades back flyers were created from scratch. But now you can make attractive, attention-grabbing promotional leaflets quickly and efficiently by using templates. The grunge work and technical prep is already done for you in a template; you are liberated to focus on the final product. What’s more, if the template is free, your flyers are free!
Know your customers
To get the best result from your marketing campaign make sure you know your potential customers and what motivates them. Do you know who they are? Busy executives? Students? Elderly? Managers? Single moms? Why do they need your help? Is it because they don’t have time? Is it because they don’t like cleaning and can afford to hire help? Or is it because they can’t do it themselves? Knowing your target audience will help you choosing the right design and the right wording to get the most return from your advertising. For example, if you are targeting a staid, conservative neighbourhood, you my want to opt for pastel shades, New Century font, and straight lines with proper vertical and horizontal alignment. On the other hand, if you are targeting a college town you may want to go for vivid hues and Zapfino lettering coupled with a youthful, New Age look.
If you are not sure what the answers are to questions above, you could do split testing and see which flyer generates more leads.
How to Make Successful House Cleaning Flyers
Don’t assume that by using a template you’ll get a ‘cookie cutter’ flyer – oh no! A good template will provide an array of elements and properties in a nearly infinite number of combinations and permutations.
The variables go way beyond just colours and fonts. For example, you can auto-align your elements using a few different methods. You can experiment with balancing your various text and graphical elements in myriad ways so as to ‘lead the eye’ to the most important element in your flyer, whether it is price, phone-number or service description. In brief, give our template to ten computer-savvy persons and you’ll get ten vastly different house-cleaning flyers!
Regardless of the purpose of your cleaning flyers you will want to include the following:
- Headline: You only have a few seconds to get attention of the reader. If you fail, your flyer goes into the trash bin and your message will not be delivered. Make sure you sum up your flyer in one short sentence. The headline should give reader an idea of what your flyer is about.
- Name of your business and contact info: This information does not need to be the main focus of the flyer but it’s important to list it so that potential customers can contact you.
- Flyer message: General message of your flyer should be simple and easy to read. You have limited space and you don’t want to bore potential customers, so keep it short and to the point. How is your business different? Why should they hire you? Which services do you provide?
- Call to action: Motivate your potential customers to contact you as soon as possible. You can offer a coupon, or a special discount that is only valid for a certain time, or make a special offer for new customers.
To save cost you can print the house cleaning flyers at home, but remember that professional flyer printing will always give you nicer-looking materials. Digital printing is quite cheap these days and unless you are printing only a few copies it’s usually cheaper than using your home desktop printing (you will use a lot of expensive ink printing at home). Once the house cleaning flyers are printed, distribute them within the area where you would like to provide services. Hang your house cleaning flyers in local grocery stores, barber shops, laundromats, restaurants, schools or kindergardens. Put them on car windows at places your target audience is likely to visit. Hire someone to hand them out at a local business. Mail them or go door-to-door in the neighborhood where you would like to work in.
