One of the most challenging things about owning a maid service is not the cleaning; it’s all the behind the scenes work. A LOT goes into making a maid service be a success. Between marketing, scheduling, hiring, and quoting, it may seem like the work never ends. Luckily, with modern technology, there are some ways to streamline how things run. Let’s take a look at how to automate your maid services quoting.
Suffice it to say, creating and sending proposals is a necessary task in growing your maid services company. You likely find yourself spending hours upon hours reviewing work orders, running calculations, and creating quotes every week. One thing is certain, time equals money, and your time could be better spent on something else. The easiest way to remove yourself from this hamster wheel is to automate the process using software.
You have a website, right? And you have a company Facebook page, correct? If your answer to either of these questions is no, then you better get hopping. The number one way to reach potential clients these days is via social media. Once you have a social media presence, you also need a website to send people to. Think of your Facebook company page as the front page of a two-fold brochure. Here is where you will give potential clients a high-level view of your maid services company. Your website is the inside of that brochure, breaking down your services, experience, reviews, and giving more detail about you and your company.
So, here’s the really cool thing. Once you have a social media presence and a website nailed down, you can easily automate your quotation process. Software, like what we offer at Compass Wave, allows you to integrate the quotation process on your website and Facebook. This is a very simple process. You customize the software by adding questions to the generated form. These questions allow you to gather as much information as you need from your potential clients. You then add cost drivers into the setup process so as potential clients walk through this questionnaire, an estimate is being generated in the background.
As you can see, this entire process is completely automated once set up. And the best part? Your potential clients can get a quotation with very little friction. This whole process is seamlessly integrated into your website or Facebook page, allowing you the freedom of recouping previously lost hours.
Growing your maid services company in 2020 is a breeze with the many innovations in technology that have been made. You might need to learn a few things on the technology side, but you will save tremendous time and effort once you do. Ready to automate your maid services quoting? Compass Wave can help.
