And remember: online reviews are imperative to help grow your cleaning business. No online reviews = no growth for your maid service. 

You’ve got leads coming in. Make sure you’ve got a good system in place to follow up on these leads. 

If you aren’t sure what a good system for lead follow-up looks like, check out this video from maid service expert Courtney Wisely.

Remember, online visibility is good. In fact, it’s key to getting more cleaning customers, increasing your profits and growing your maid service. 

Listing your maid service on these 30+ directories may seem like a lot of work up front, but the payoffs down the road will be worth it. 

Although this won’t be an entirely passive lead generation process, it will take much less work to maintain your listings once you’ve created them. 

So put in the extra work now to see your cleaning business grow later.
