            HI Gempat,

             

             

            O cool I have worked with a cleaning company before to. Is this a commercial cleaning or residual and commercial business? I have seen that this may play a role in how it is worded/designed on a card. A Business friend- he uses EDDM mailings for his cards and they are very wordy of deals, ways, why, and very small pics related to all the text, this is successful for him, I could replicate this but this comes with a budget, consistency is of assents there.

             

            I worked with a start up last year and I made pics primary using online bidding sites for cleaning companies needed, (working in there budget) this worked for me and there company. This gave me opportunity to meet at the place and give an actual quote, good opportunities to get return customers, upgrade, and explain the process of how they'll worked conveniently of office hours and what  price it would be for the hole contract of all of the franchises or what ever the pitch may be.

             

            Well these were my experiences I hope it could help

                I just happened to run across this web site and saw your question about cleaning fliers. I myself had a successful thriving cleaning buisness for 6 years until my husbands father and grand mother got sick and I was their sole caretaker. Resulting in my having to close my business. Unfortunately, both have  since passed.

                If there is anything I can help you with, please ask me. I am not actually sure I will find my way back to this website, but I will do my best to check back.

                Good Luck

                  gempat you could write a sample text, of what you think should be on the 'postcard' then put that sample you think of on your profile page, then the members could view it and give you advise. Also you could update your personal profile anyway, tell us more about your business, and your plans, thanks.

                      Just say hello and tell people how to reach you services.

                      and if you are not computer savey look into letting one of your children show you the internet it is much quicker.

                       

                      Best wishes
