1. Identify Your Ideal Clients

One of the best ways to write best-selling cleaning ads is by identifying your ideal clients. In turn, knowing your ideal clients allows you to write the most effective copy.

Identify your ideal clients by thinking of your favorite client when answering questions such as:

  • What’s their age?
  • Are they married or single?
  • What’s their education level?
  • What’s their household income?
  • Do they have kids? If so, how many?
  • What are some of their challenges or pain points?
  • What do they do for a living? Do they have any spare time?

The main key to maximizing the effectiveness of your cleaning ads lies within the details. Which means, increased specificity provides more insight, which increases effectiveness.

In addition, you can send surveys to discover what clients love most about your business (you can easily do this using Service Autopilot).

For instance, take a look at a few survey questions you can ask:

  • What about our cleaning business do you love the most?
  • Why did you choose our cleaning business over our competitors?
  • What do you care more about when choosing a cleaning business?

These survey results will help provide additional insight into your favorite clients.

Watch for commonalities or trends in the responses. For example, are there cleaning packages, specific services, or upsells that sell best?

Plus, these insights can help you determine exact selling season dates, which allows you to increase conversions and beat the competition.

Take advantage of the insight you’ve gained from your ideal clients to create the most effective cleaning ads possible.

Automations is the  #1 way to follow up  with clients. If you’re not using it, your business might still be successful - but it won’t grow.

2. Prioritize Problems and Solutions

The insight you’ve gained from identifying your ideal client can be used to pinpoint any problems and solutions they face.

For instance, what everyday problems do your cleaning services solve for your clients?

Use the survey responses you collected in the previous step to identify their problems and solutions.

Here’s a quick example of how you can incorporate client problems and solutions into your cleaning ads:

  • Are you tired of spending countless hours breaking your back to clean the house? Are you sick of wasting your precious spare time trying to keep up with your perpetually dirty house? At [cleaning business name], we service your house on a routine basis. Services start at just $XX! Call now at XXX-XXX-XXXX or visit our website to claim your free estimate!

3. Create an Urgent and Timely CTA

In order to increase the chances of leads completing your CTA (i.e. Call-to-Action), your CTAs need to be urgent and timely.

After all, without a sense of urgency or timeliness, leads won’t feel a need to follow through with the desired CTA.

Take a look at a few examples of simple CTAs having a sense of urgency and timeliness:

  • Sign up for one of our routine cleaning service packages before [insert deadline] and receive XX% off your first service!
  • Sign up for one of our routine cleaning service packages before [insert deadline] and receive a free [insert upsell service] on your first visit!

As a result of using these two simple elements, you can create an irresistible offer clients can’t refuse and improve your CTAs just by incorporating.

In turn, clients will feel the need to quickly take action out of fear of missing out on your exclusive, limited offer.

4. Keep Your Cleaning Ads Clear and Concise

In order to create the best cleaning ads possible, it’s important to keep your copy clear and concise.

Which means, it’s important to be deliberate, selective, and precise in your language - avoiding the use of any fluff in your copy.

Keep in mind, every word in your ad copy needs to hold a purpose, and the copy must be accessible to everyone at all reading levels.

For this reason, you should avoid high-level vocabulary words. Instead, write something which is simple and easy to understand without a dictionary or prior background knowledge.

For example, here’s a clear and concise CTA for a cleaning ad you can use:

  • Call now at XXX-XXX-XXXX or visit our website to claim your free estimate!

5. Place Contact Information in a Highly Visible Location

Finally, it’s important to place contact information in a highly visible location where it can’t be missed or glanced over.

Which means, you don't want to bury your contact information within your cleaning ads.

For instance, putting your contact information at the end of the ad in its own paragraph serves as a logical, unmistakable location.

This way, anyone skimming the ad knows how to reach out to you.
