For the most part, usually the majority of window cleaners that are serious about their business know for a fact that the window cleaning industry is a VERY profitable industry. But some still consider it to be a seasonal career or job. That your business will slow down considerably and even come to a complete halt if your not fully prepared. The winter months of the year depending on your area can be very devastating for any window cleaner that is not prepared.
You do not want to be one of those other unfortunate window cleaners that are stressing out about the house payment or about paying for necessities like food and water. Even if you are not struggling to that extreme it can still be a hassle preparing your tight budget while using funds from your savings to get by. These and countless other reasons should motivate you to prepare for the winter season right now.
You might be surprised to hear just how many other services a window cleaning professional can offer to his existing and future customers and clients. The fact that you already have the business aspect down and you know how to sell / approach your customers gives you a foot in over the rest of the public. Your experience should make selling an add-on to your window cleaning business easy. Some add-ons to your business for the winter can include Christmas lighting installation, hot / cold water pressure washing of roof or house walls, snow removal, driveway cleaning / sealing, and gutter cleaning. These are only a few suggestions, feel free to add on anything you think your clients would want to pay for.
Another aspect of your window cleaning business that you should highly consider is the marketing area of your business. It would be very difficult for you to find clients once winter time comes around if you put off your marketing strategies until then. You need to prepare NOW. Send out postcards and fliers advertising the kind of cleaning services you plan on selling to your clients during the winter. Start advertising to your current window cleaning list of clientele, they already know you and trust you with your window cleaning services and this will leave them more inclined to buy from you in the future. That’s what I did with my Temecula window cleaning company and I was astounded at the results. Once winter comes around and you start getting calls from all of your advertising you’ll be amazed at how busy you will be.
Remember these are just a few tips to help you personally keep your window cleaning company busy during the winter months. I highly encourage you to use as many of these tips as you can. They have helped me greatly during the winter and I know for a fact that they will help you too. Good luck, and remember to be safe!
