Cleaning Business Brochures

Cleaning Business Brochures

With spring over and cleaning business owners already looking toward getting their Fall Marketing in full swing we have been getting numberous inquiries about using and creating brochures for cleaning and janitorial marketing.

Using color brochures when you are out cold calling, as inserts in proposals or as mailings are a great way to showcase your business and give quick information about the services you provide.

Putting together information for your brochure is as simple as writing an outline of the services that you provide. Rhonda Pressgrove founder of HelpMeRhonda Cleaning Services in greater Memphis and Residential Cleaning Bidding Peer Mentor at the Global Cleaning Association has often hired students for the final product after providing layout and content.

Printing brochures is best left to the pro's though unless you have a high quality laser printer.

Several online editors such as Vista Print will allow you to create your brochure online and Microsoft Word is just as effective in putting together a nice brochure as the more expensive MS Publisher.

To assist our community of cleaning business owners we have created a free brochure template that requires only MS Word to edit and print. It's downloadable in zip format at our website

The cleaning pictures in this brochure template were provided free by CleanPeers and can easily be replaced with your own.
