In an attempt to make their websites have a high Search Engine Optimization (SEO) level, many businesses end up creating sites that are overly cluttered with content or otherwise poorly designed.
A common mistake business owners make is making the website appealing to them, as opposed to the people they are selling their products or services to. Everyone wants to have a good-looking website, but your priorities should be centered around making your site accessible to your customers.
Having a lot of content may help make your site more attractive to search engines, but if it’s not providing anything for the user, all it really does is take up space. One of the key aspects of a website is making it easy for consumers to quickly and easily find whatever they’re looking for.
Once you have followed these steps, then you can measure the results by determining your Key Performance Indicators (KPI).

This post is going to shed some light on how to actually make a buck off of that website that up until now has just been a big cash suck. So grab a cup of coffee (or hard liquor if you are the sensitive type) and settle in for a nice rant on why so many cleaning companies websites suck and how YOU and YOUR WEBSITE can suck no more!! BONUS LOVIN: Any time you write (or speak), count how many times you say things like “I” or “we” versus “YOU”. Notice this isn’t just another blog on websites- it is specifically written to you fine people- owners of cleaning companies.
The best way to segment your customers is to have multiple sites each one speaking to a very specific customer. Who do you think is going to get the bid- a general cleaning company or someone that specializes in million dollar home maintenance?? If you aren’t willing to make multiple websites for each segment you serve (or want to serve), at the very least make a page within your site speaking to each.
Now that you see the value in talking to prospects about their specific hopes dreams and fears- how do you keep the conversation going? Just about every cleaning company owner thinks that as long as their website “looks good” and has a “Get a Quote” button they are covered. Not only will the emails provide lots of education and content (all of which will position you as the ONLY choice in your market), it will continue putting an offer for more free value in the form of a free site audit, where you will go to their building and let them know how your company can benefit them in exchange for sweet sweet money. The fact that it is a bit of work to set up actually benefits you as your competition is almost certainly NOT providing this level of service and education. What if the visitor doesn’t take advantage of your kind offer to give them fantastic info for the low low price of their email address?
Nice job on staying with me- this is where we turn all of these fine concepts into your next customer.
Now that you are speaking to your visitor and you have a plan to capture his or her information and continue the conversation both via email and the magic of retargeting, you can spend money to get people to your cleaning companies website.
In this scenario, you could spend $300, $400 even $500 to acquire this customer and it would be a profitable endeavor.
If only 30% download your lead magnet, you have just acquired 30 pretty interested leads for just $500. You can even upload your best 100 customers and prospects and Facebook will make a “lookalike” audience that matches your ideal audience’s likes, demographics and more. So, just in case your head is spinning, here is a nice little summary to make you feel warm and fuzzy and make sure you take these concepts and put em to work in your business! The following tutorial will take you step by step through the process of setting up your own website. Your domain name provides visitors with the first and most lasting impression of your website. It’s up to you which plan you choose to go with, but I generally recommend people go for a year or two in advance, it works out much cheaper that way. Once that is done, GreenGeeks will setup your new domain and web host, and link them together.
In this tutorial I am going to show you how to build a website based on a free piece of software called WordPress.
These features include a set of themes that allow you to build a professional site without hiring a web developer. A manual installation of WordPress is often time-consuming, especially for novice web developers. 1) Login to your GreenGeeks account manager (the link will be in your welcome email from GreenGeeks).
3) Once you are logged in, click on the Blue cPanel Login button: You will now see a screen with a bunch of icons on it. Then last but not least you will see the “Select Language” option and “Limit Login Attempts”, which you can again just leave them as they are and click the Install Button.

After a minute or two you should see the screen below, which means that the software has been installed and is ready to go.
This page primarily consists of links in submenus that allow you to change various features of your website such as your WordPress theme. Having a visible site means nothing if customers won’t stay around to actually use it.
Always make sure to use proper grammar, get straight to the point, and have a reason for the content to be there. Be sure to incorporate navigation in both the header and the footer, so users can access it regardless of where they are on the page.
Your Search Engine Rankings will most likely be one of them, but there are other factors to consider depending on what kind of business you run. Austin Visuals can help you save time and many headaches of getting your project off the ground and best of all we make your imagination, reality.

BUT… you’re also probably the proud (not for long) owner of a cleaning company website that is NOT making you any money!!
I can speak directly and specifically to your exact needs and frustrations, you in turn are compelled to give me copious amounts of money to help you grow your business. Now that you are armed with the yummy client getting goodness of this blog, this creates a tremendous opportunity for you! A new customer is the goal and prospects stopping by your website is just a piece of your client acquisition plan. You are going to offer to send this lead magnet to your web visitor in exchange for his or her email address. Using Facebook, you can put what’s called a “pixel” on your website that tags visitors to your site. To make my life easy and avoid any real math, let’s say that you make 50% margin on that customer which would be $3,000. If only 33% of the people who download your lead magnet invite you to give them a bid, you just got 10 bids at $50 each, close only 2-3 and you are way ahead of the game.

This submenu lets you modify settings that are specific to each user such as profiles, email and passwords. Here are some steps to creating a website that appeals to customers and stays marketable as well.
Try to understand why your existing companies buy from you rather than other companies, and emphasize your unique qualities on your website. After all, colors and imagery that appeal to young adult men aren’t necessarily going to have the same effect on middle-aged women. For every page on your site, be sure to ask yourself why the page is there, is the information important to your customers, what is the impression you want to leave on the viewer, and what do you want the reader to do after seeing the page. For sites with a lot of pages, consider using drop-down menus so customers can find the pages deeper within your site.
For example, if you specialize in ecommerce, be sure to look at purchases and shopping cart abandonment rates. Austin Visuals can help you 'WOW' your target audience every time through our commercial-quality Animation Designed Custom for your needs.

Once you have this email address you will follow up with a series of emails continuing to provide massive value to your prospect over the next 60 days. You may have dabbled in paid traffic before and not had any luck, but I am willing to bet that was before you read this article and your site was guilty of the #1 and #2 reason your cleaning company website isn’t making any money.
