3. Update Marketing Materials and Strategy

Communication is key when adding a new service, and your customers won’t know about it until you tell them! No matter which marketing techniques you use, whether it’s an email campaign, physical mailers, flyers, social media, or a website, create materials that will highlight your new service, and clearly communicate the benefits and effectiveness of what you are offering. But don’t underestimate the power of word-of-mouth marketing; go above and beyond, and your customers will spread the word, leave a five-star review, and even refer you to their friends!

There’s nothing a customer loves more than getting an awesome deal and saving money. Creating special packages or promotions for customers who use your LVT/LVP cleaning service will help you attract initial interest in your services, but keep in mind that while these can kickstart business, be cautious not to rely too heavily on promotions, as sustained value is key for customer retention.


5. Offer Maintenance Plans

If you’ve been in the cleaning game for a while now, you probably already offer maintenance plans for your customers. Extending it to cover your new LVT/LVP services will create a recurring revenue stream, but when you offer these plans to your customers, make sure to educate them and emphasize the value of ongoing maintenance for the longevity of the flooring, and your customers will see the value in letting you take care of their flooring consistently.


6. Request Feedback and Reviews

Review smaller

Building a good reputation among those you serve is crucial and customer feedback plays a pivotal role. Encourage customers to leave reviews after every job and consider showcasing before-and-after photos as powerful testimonials. Doing so will enhance your online presence and create a positive feedback loop that can drive continuous business growth. Who doesn’t want that?
