Starting a Carpet Cleaning Business – Marketing and Advertising

Starting a carpet cleaning business can seem simple to many individuals, but as with any business venture for the entrepreneur marketing and advertising can be a make or break. Here are a few helpful tips for marketing and advertising your new carpet cleaning business.Marketing and advertising is one of the most critical parts of a successful carpet cleaning business. To begin with advertising and marketing can be done through some of the old stand-bys such as a classified ads paper. The classified ads paper is the popular little magazine that many grab on their way out of any large grocery store to the small mom and pops convenience stores. A simple ad placement here can cost as little as $7 to $14 dollars a week and be a solid start to getting noticed by all those individuals looking for products and services on a budget.The Yellow Book of course is an old friend for many entrepreneurs out there. The cost will usually be more than the cost of the classified ads, but this medium has been around and still used, although not as often today, but it is still a good way to be found quickly. Having a large ad as you will see later in this article, will actually not be as effective as most would like, but simply having your name in the Yellow Book should be a must on your list of places for marketing.The newspaper has always been the place to be for many, many decades. Today however, those who used to fight for the T.V. guide space no longer find this as appealing as it once was due to technology and the power of cable. Today it might be better to be towards the opinion pages, sports pages and even in the local community section of the paper itself. Although all these mediums are great stand-bys, there has never been anything as cost effective and powerful as what comes next.The Internet, when it comes to marketing and advertising for the carpet cleaning business this medium has been passed up for the most part. Some looking to the Internet believe that it is an expensive and confusing land of the lost, but this is not so. This medium for marketing and advertising is the most powerful and cost effective of any medium ever invented. There is no need for spending thousands for serious and deeply involved websites for the carpet cleaner this can be done with a simple blog hosted for less than $10 dollar a month. Learning how to use this medium only comes with a small investment and tax-write-off for a simple education in Internet marketing. The yellow book, newspaper and classified ads are giving way to Dex online, Craiglist and a simple blog with solid marketing pointing the way.

The Battle For Vacation Rental Supremacy – HomeAway Versus TripAdvisor

The sum paid for Holiday Lettings has not been disclosed but one would assume that it generated very good value for the 2 co-founders of Holiday Lettings. And, since TripAdvisor is owned by the publicly quoted Expedia, one would also assume that it represents value for Expedia’s shareholders over the long term.But question: Is this value for the customers of Holiday Lettings, the owners and renters that have made the site so successful until now?The Advantages of CompetitionFor starters, someone that challenges the supremacy of HomeAway brings competition to the market place. And with competition, usually the consumer wins either through price or through an improved product. Price is unlikely to change because an annual listing fee on these sites is typically around $300 hundred dollars. If you achieve a few weeks rental then it’s a relatively cheap and hassle free service. So if not price then what?Perhaps investment in product? Bearing in mind the millions which HomeAway is setting aside for it’s marketing programme, including the recent Super Bowl ad, then it’s likely TripAdvisor will put some money into Holiday Lettings, or it’s US based vacation rental business, Flipkey. But aside from investment and some competition for HomeAway it’s hard to see any other advantages, especially as TripAdvisor claims to be leaving Holiday Lettings to run independently.The Downside of GrowthWith boasts from HomeAway that they have 500,000 listings worldwide, and TripAdvisor surely having similar ambitions, we have to wonder whether these sites are becoming too large. With growth you usually risk losing sight of your customer who, in the end, controls the success of the product. And with growth some owners claim that their rental listing is lost among the masses of other rentals in their area.Where Should the Investment Go?What are vacation rentals all about? Surely they are now exactly what they were 10 years ago – a more personal vacation accommodation option than corporate hotel chains, with very good value and facilities. With the explosion of social media and the trend towards people wanting to engage with real people, we believe there is a perfect storm between social media, the internet and vacation rentals. If there is investment money available then let’s refine the product to bring real value to customers – give them the platform and tools to promote everything that’s great about vacation rentals. Let’s see the owner, let’s hear their knowledge of the local area, let’s see their videos, their Facebook pages – let’s bring personality back into vacation rental websites.
