The marketing aspect of the pressure washing business or any business for that matter should be the most important part of your business. You can have the most expensive equipment and know exactly how to do the work, but without any customers your business will fail.

The marketing aspect of many small businesses is often put last on the priority list. In the initial stages of the pressure washing business just as much time and effort should be put into marketing as doing the jobs. Later, as you build a client base less emphasis can be placed on marketing, but the first year in business is where marketing your business is crucial.

Here are 5 top ways you can use to market your power washing business:

1. Make sure your customers become repeat customers.

It’s easier to make the sale the second time around because you’ve built trust and credibility into your clients mind. If you do quality work they will most likely need your services again in the near future. Document the clients name on a spreadsheet and make follow-up calls every few months.

Even if they don’t need the work right then, many times you will land a job because they will recommend your company to their next door neighbor or someone else they know. Just by calling you’re establishing a relationship, and people will keep you in mind when someone they know needs work done. Also make sure you leave them your business card or some other way they will remember your company information.

2. Advertise online

The internet is quickly replacing the phone book as a medium to advertise in. Make sure you get your website or company information in online directories. It’s important to have a website for your business to give you an advantage when marketing online, and it’s a credibility factor for your potential clients.

3. Use flyers in strategically placed areas

Instead of scattering your flyers all over the parking lot, try placing them in the waiting rooms or in small business waiting rooms. Post them on church bulletins so many different people will see your flyer instead of one person. It’s also a good idea to go to your local real estate offices and hand the agents your flyers.

4. Calling and faxing

Call a list of apartment complexes in your area and fax the property managers your company information. Usually if they need a bid for pressure washing they will tell you or call you later on.

5. Network with contractors and property managers

Spend some time getting to know property managers and contractors in your area. There is solid potential for repeat business if you find the right people to work with.
