06 Choose a Territory Savvy Cleaner Training Angela Brown

How to Choose a Territory

This How to Choose a Territory course will show you how to commit to cleaning a specific geographic area.

This way you can stack your schedule properly and stop wasting time and money commuting. Having a territory will also save you gobs of money on advertising costs.

For the last two and a half decades I’ve been consulting and training house cleaners. And one of the biggest problems I see with start up cleaning businesses is the owners are so desperate to “land a job” that they agree to work with the first interested person that comes along. Even if that person lives 20 miles away.

A 20-mile commute can take 40 to 60 minutes to drive – one way – depending on the traffic and time of day.

If it takes 60 minutes one way – you still have to come back which is another hour of drive time. That’s a 2-hour commute for one job. If that customer is a bi-weekly customer you’ll be making that drive 26 times this year.

Choose a Territory, House Cleaner is broke
Choose a Territory, Time lost this year calendar

26 cleanings a year x 2 hours of drive time each cleaning is 52 hours of time lost in travel. And if you work 40 hours a week – you will have lost well over a weeks’ worth of billable time in the commute. And that’s just for one client – every year. That’s not the way to set your business up for success.

In this How to Choose A Territory course, I’m going to show you:

  • How to choose a territory
  • How to market to that territory and
  • How to make your time work for you, not against you

Time is money.

And speaking of money – if people from 20 miles away are calling you for service – you’re advertising is all wrong. You’re wasting money there too.

Let’s get down to the nitty-gritty about how to find the highest paying and most consistent paying jobs in geographic hub where you work. Let’s hone in on that market so you stand out from the competition. And come learn what to do if the market is already saturated with house cleaners in that hub.

This one course (if you get this right) will save you thousands of dollars a year in commute time, wear and tear on your car, and mismatched advertising expenses that don’t pay off.
