Using Social Media With Your Cleaning Business

A cautionary tip! If you are going to link to your social media pages or embed them in your business website with a widget make sure that you keep your social media pages updated. If you are a  painter, window washer, mechanic, plumber, electrician, house cleaner or any kind of service pro, you may not be focusing on social media in your day to day work dealings. It can be difficult for real-world service businesses to remember to keep their social media pages current. Especially if you are not a geek at heart. And many people are not!

A Facebook page that has not been updated for 3 months does more harm to your cleaning business than good. People may assume you are out of business or lack interest in running your business. I have seen business Facebook pages with no update for over a year or more.

Set an alarm that you will notice (in the real world or on your personal device) for once per week to remind you to update your social media pages. It is all too easy to let one week become two, two become three,  then four, etc… That is not good!  You should post at least once per week and not more than 3 times.

Keeping your social media pages updated may seem obvious, and it is, but it is all too easy for real-world professionals to forget.
