What’s the most effective way to promote a house cleaning business?

I’m trying to start a little house cleaning/maid business. What’s the most effective way to promote it?

I’ve tried word of mouth & running an ad in the local paper. No luck so far.

Should I try a facebook page & run ads in the area? Post on Craigslist? Where?

    Post on nextdoor and you local facebook pages.

    We DO NOT WANT business cards on our doors.

    - it's environmentally unfriendly and trash to most of us.

    We are going to hire housekeepers from neighbor referrals.  Not people who don't have enough business that they need to post on houses.

    Start with defining your ideal client. Think about why that person would be interested in having their house cleaned by someone like yourself. Think about their challenges, frustrations, and needs. You can use this information as a starting point for posting short informational video tips and hacks.

    Yes nextdoor is a great place

    Angie's list is good too.

    What about walking an area and leaving a business card on door

    Digital marketing is the best way to promote a business.

    Social media platform is another way to promote a business.

    You should get some nice business cards printed up (Go to Vistaprint.com)  Then put the cards on houses in the area you want to work.  You may have to walk the neighborhoods and distribute them, and you can't legally put them in the mailbox.  Put why you are a good maid service on the card.

    Try the library if they let you put stuff on a bb. Also a local grocery store might have bbs outside.  Join Nextdoor. That might be a good place to advertise in your area too.
