In order to rank higher on search engines and dominate sites like Google, Yahoo and Bing, you need to build backlinks to your website. Backlinks are things like videos, articles, blog posts, etc., that link back to your website. Search engines then see that more sites are pointing back at your website and due to this, your website is more important and should be ranked higher. Sounds easy, right?
Wrong. With all of the competition on the Internet for every keyword you can think of (a keyword is something that you search for online. For example, if I was looking for a cleaning service in San Diego, CA, I would search for ‘cleaning service in San Diego’ That would be my keyword, and you would try to get your website rated higher in the search engines when someone would search that particular keyword. And you want to rank for a minimum of at least 10 keywords for your website.), this takes a lot of work and is very time consuming to do yourself. The best part about SEO, however, is that after you invest the time and work to get your website to rank on top of the search engines, it will greatly increase the amount of organic traffic that you receive.
Organic traffic is traffic you get to your website without paying for it. This means that when someone searches for your keywords, your website will be on the top of the search engines. With a solid SEO strategy and an amazing team that is able to pull that plan off, you will be ranked on the top of the search engines, and you will get a lot more free traffic to your website. As with any business, everything is a numbers game. More people to your website, more people know about what you do. More people know what you do, more people are going to come to you when they require your service.
YouTube is the second largest search engine used today. Using informational videos and video marketing techniques can improve your cleaning business’ exposure in your local area and bring you new clients. Videos are a great way to present your cleaning business to potential clients, to introduce yourself and your employees to customers, and to explain why your service is what they need, all in a short video, not several pages of text.
Videos are cost-effective because they provide a significant return on investment with increased conversions on your website. Video advertising is also a great tool and can be used through social media to start a free viral marketing campaign. This is why video marketing is so essential in this day and age.
As mentioned, YouTube is the second largest search engine on the planet, as well as owned by the first largest search engine on the planet, Google. So doesn’t it make sense that Google will rank its videos higher for applicable keywords? The answer is yes. That is why you need to utilize video marketing and SEO your videos as well. I won’t bore you with all the details, but this process starts before you even upload your video to YouTube or any other video service.
All of this plays a major role in how high your video will rank on Youtube and other video sites, as well as on Google. Have you ever Googled something and had videos pop up? That’s exactly what ranking your videos can do for your business, get them ranked higher on search engines. As we went over earlier, the higher your website, or in this case video, rank, the more organic traffic you will get to your website and business.
This, like every other aspect of marketing your cleaning business, is easy, if you know what you are doing. But video marketing doesn’t stop there. Each video is just like a ‘mini-website’. It needs to have backlinks linking back to it so the search engines think that it is relevant. So after the video has been set up for success, the job is still not over. You then have to drive backlinks to your video, link it back to your blog and website, plus all the other stuff required to get your video and website to rank higher.
Our team at Over The Top SEO can help you create and distribute a custom-made video for your cleaning company, providing you with many options for the style of your video as well as how to use it as a marketing and advertising tool. Our team can help with the storyboard, script, production, and much more. Contact us today to learn more about video marketing and how it can help your cleaning business move to the next level in sales.
Building a network of those who can help attract new clients to your cleaning business is an important marketing strategy. First, start by joining some local associations. Usually, your small-business bureau will have information about local groups that meet regularly. Look into trade associations in your area. By joining forces with other service-oriented business, you can trade referrals. For example, your clients may be looking for someone to help take care of their lawn or pool or to help with remodeling or renovation projects. Those professionals’ clients may also be in the market for a house cleaner.
When you recommend them to your clients, they are likely to reciprocate. Becoming active in trade groups is also a great way to learn more about running a small business, as you can learn from others about marketing, bookkeeping, inventory management, and other managerial tasks. Connect with local realtors, who often recommend house cleaning services to new homeowners. Homebuilders often hire cleaning services to prepare houses once construction is complete. If you have the workforce and capacity, consider connecting with a commercial real estate agent, so they can connect you with clients who need offices cleaned.
One excellent source of referrals is your current clients who are satisfied with the work you do for them. Asking your current clients to refer you to their friends and family is a proven marketing strategy. When you clean a home, leave a referral card your current client can give out, including a note explaining your request. Offer your current clients a referral incentive for sending new business your way.
This could be a discount on their current service for a specified time or a free bonus service like window washing or a carpet cleaning. Clients will appreciate you are willing to reward them, and you are guaranteed to continue bookings with them for them to redeem their bonus. If you have a client who is also in a service business, consider offering to trade referrals.
Before hiring a cleaning service to come into their home or business, most people will read online reviews. It is essential that you are aware of all of the reviews online about your cleaning business and that you actively cultivate good reviews.
The first step is claiming your business on Google, Yelp, Angie’s List, and other review sites. Make sure all information about your cleaning company is accurate. Next, respond to all reviews, and if you occasionally have a negative review, be sure to reach out to correct the problem. Don’t try to engage the negative reviewer through the online platform but instead do it privately. Do whatever is necessary to remedy the station, then ask them to please review you again. When you have happy clients, suggest they consider your cleaning services online. You can remind them to evaluate your services in person, via email, or through a postcard or other mailer. You can even provide them with detailed instructions for how to review you on various platforms to be sure they know how. Because many people trust online reviews, taking the time to understand how you are being examined to cultivate positive reviews is very important for successful marketing.
In the cleaning market, there is no greater marketing strategy than you and the quality of your work. When you do good work, hire good employees, train them well, and stand by your services, your clients will notice and recommend you to others. They will be more likely to review you positively online as well as hire you for additional services. Keeping an existing client is a free marketing strategy, so don’t overlook it. Also, ask your clients honestly what problem they have that you can help solve and what services you could offer that would be of interest to them. They are a great source for information about how to improve your business.
When marketing your house cleaner company, remember to focus on what makes you unique among all the rest. Use your social media posts, blog, and other online outlets to explain your unique place in the cleaning market, differentiating you from your competitors. Do you use environmentally friendly products? Do you offer deep-clean services? Are you able to clean especially tricky messes? Do you have more experience than others? Do you provide flexible scheduling? Do you also offer services such as grocery delivery or meal preparation? Show potential clients why yours is the right service for them and increase the value of your business above others.
These two simple strategies are easy ways to market your cleaning company’s services, and once you have developed the flier or door hanger and paid for printing, it is another low-cost, high-yield way to attract new clients quickly. It’s known by many names, but we’ll refer to it as the walk-around. If you or your employees are finished cleaning one of your client’s homes, take a few extra minutes to walk around the area and hang fliers or door hangers on neighboring homes.
You can focus on a specific number of houses (5, 9, 13, etc.) or a particular area (all the houses on this block), whatever works for you. This is a great way to focus on homes in the income brackets you are catering toward, and an easy to way make your schedule convenient, as you’ll spend less time traveling if your clients are concentrated in one area. Also, if potential clients see your car (with signs for your business on the side) in their neighborhood, they will know you are a trusted service provider among their neighbors. Likewise, hanging fliers in key areas in your community can yield good results.
Be sure your flier contains all the relevant information for your cleaning business, that it’s attractive but succinct, and that it tells how you can solve a problem they currently have. After developing and printing the fliers, put them up around your community in places where potential clients gather. Bulletin boards in office buildings and grocery stores are good as well as local gyms. Community events, festivals, and fairs are great opportunities to get out in front of the community, putting a face to your cleaning business’ name. Ask your networking friends to pass out fliers to their clients, or hang on in their offices.
Email campaigns can be beneficial for retaining current clients as well as bringing in new ones. Email allows you to build a more intimate relationship with current and potential clients by communicating with them directly and helping them solve problems they may have. Include cleaning tips or informational guides in each newsletter or on your blog, highlighting your expertise and also providing clients with helpful information.
Email links to useful videos or pictures and bios of you and your team, which helps customers know who they are working with. Email campaigns are a great way to introduce services you offer or ask for feedback on your performance or offerings. Targeted email campaigns can be directed to people who have visited your website or social media page but have yet to book a service. This is called remarketing, and it’s a very useful marketing strategy for booking new clients. You want to remind them what problem you can help solve for them, why they visited your website in the first place, and offer an incentive for booking with you the first time. This type of follow up is crucial for setting you apart from your competition.
There are many different companies and software that can help you set up targeted marketing emails, including addressing potential clients at each stage of the buying process. However, working with a cleaning company marketer with experience in email marketing is a good idea, as it will help yield the best results.

Over The SEO Ninjas has done outstanding things for our business growth and our online presence. Prior to working with Over The Top, we attempted to run our own PPC campaigns with very low results (wasting a lot of money). After bringing in Over The Top, who understands our needs and is very attentive, the phone is ringing off the hook. Thank you for helping us triple our profits! We give them the highest regard for their skill set and highly recommend them for any company’s website building and online presence.
After hiring a few SEO firms over the years, with little to no results, I decided to give one more crack at it. I learned about Over The Top SEO while researching the best link building companies on google, and found myself stumbling across their website. I was introduced to the founder, Guy Sheetrit, by one of his employees, and could immediately tell my experience would be different. Guy seems to have a knowledge of SEO that far surpasses that of 99% of the SEO firms I’ve dealt with in the past, and the results speak for itself. I plan on using his services in the months to come.
Over The Top SEO chose a great name, because their results really are over the top. I worked out an estimated ROI I’d get from working with them, and the results have FAR exceeded what I thought I’d be getting. First page results all over the place, ranking for wayyyyy more phrases than I was even expecting, and the traffic has turned into a game changing amount of new business for me and my company. Thank you guys sincerely!
I was the one to locate Over the top SEO for my University and I am happy I did it. These guys are no joke, they know what they are doing from A to Z. no games, no time wasting. purely professional.
We started working with Over The Top SEO after looking for serious SEO experts, we found them in the top positions for most of the competitive words we looked up and after much consideration we decided to go with them, We can’t disclose too much but I can say that it is a beautiful relationship and we are most grateful for the technical knowledge these guys have. Overall just 10/10.
We are a fairly big company in the auto parts industry and Over The Top SEO helped us grow A LOT in the past 2 years. we would gladly recommend them anytime, anywhere.
This company is probably the best we have encountered as of yet, we have been suffering from poor “SEO” experts by 5 companies that are known out there and yet all fail to deliver and over promise the sky. With over the top we literally had 100% interaction in our campaign, we were an active part of the process and still are always in the loop. We finally saw results after several short months with a continuing growth in sales. We are so happy to have met Guy and his team of professionals, and we are not going anywhere.
We were very surprised by the way Guy, Greg, Paul and the team at Over the top SEO works, its the first time someone opens our eyes to what is happening with our campaigns and involves us deeply into the process, which now I understand the importance of why they do it they way they do, we are with OTT for more than 9 months now and we are very happy with them, they are the only company that provided us with raw results constantly.
It sounds that I am very buyest, but hee, what these guys do works. On a daily basis you see your positions improve, traffic get better and your store grow. We are happy bumping into Over The Top SEO, even though we are a dutch company they managed to get Gereedschappelijk the ranking we were looking for. And still improving…!
Really Enjoyed my experience and will continue working with Over The Top SEO in the future. Much love.
Who knows? OTT might be the best thing that ever happened to you.
