Use the old Show-and-Tell method to display the results of your superior cleaning services.

[EasyDNNnewsToken:Left Justify Embed 300 x 250]Right beside your list of selling points, points of differentiation, even your testimonials, post a photograph that shows the “Before We Cleaned” and the “After We Cleaned” comparison.
What do you think is more powerful – not to mention faster – at selling your services: the list or the picture?
It’s especially easy and useful to take before-and-after pictures at any first-time in or one-time deep clean. Why? Well, usually, the home has not been kept up very well, so the dirty-to-clean contrast is pretty dramatic.
Focus your attention on spots that no one ever wants to get to:
- corner baseboards – especially white ones with lots of dirt
- floors between appliances
- dark flat surfaces where dust shows easily
- upper door sills and the tops of pictures
- ceiling fan blades
- and more!
Besides being great “proof of results,” your own photographs personalize your website and make for great social media posts.
