                  Hi ET,

                   

                  These days, when people are looking for cleaning services in their area, they run a quick Google search. You want your site to be one of the top results, and when that prospective customer clicks on your listing, you want your website to make a good impression.

                   

                  I think you came here for some constructive honesty.  I've got to tell you that your website could use a little sprucing up.  Here are some things I noticed:

                   

                  • On your home page, you have a large image in the middle of the page with people standing around a conference table.  This image takes up a lot of prime space on the home page and doesn't really tell us anything about your service. I would consider deleting it, or swapping it our for something much smaller.
                  • Your website is very generic.  It doesn't really tell us about who your company is.  "Quality Cleaning, Professional Staff, Affordable Rates" - any cleaning company can say that.  What makes your company different?
                  • You are a family-owned company, so where are the pictures of the family?  Of your cleaning staff?
                  • Honestly, your Wix website may not be doing your business justice.  In this case, you might be getting what you pay for.  You can purchase a professional commercial cleaning website template for less than $60.  Of course, you'd have to pay someone to set it up and customize it for you.  Probably worth the investment, though.  There are probably other website template services out there as well.
                  • I wouldn't use Yahoo as your company email address.  It doesn't look professional.  Instead use something like info@getcommercialofficecleaning.com

                  Also, I noticed there is a typo in your promotion.  It should say "with signed contract".

                   

                  One other thing I discovered is that on your HomeAdvisor report you list $0 in General Liability and $0 in Bonding.  I'm sure you have more than that.    You should update it to promote a higher level of trust for prospective clients.

                   

                  Hope the above helps,

                  What about referrals?  Give the person who is referring a % off if the person they referred uses your services.  And give the new person a one time discount for trying your services.
