Business planning: How to plan and set up a new digital marketing agency

Any business that starts today is not complete without an online presence. There are billions of people surfing the internet every day, and for any business, this would prove to be a gold mine if they conduct their digital marketing correctly.

Big brands that once dominated the high streets have slowly started closing their high street shops and setting up shop online. As a result, the experience we once had of high streets is no longer the same. Most of the time, you will find shops with a very small range of items, while their online stores would be fully stocked.

This trend is not only seen in the clothing industry, but in any industry, you can think of. For some service industries, you may need to be physically present, for example, a car wash, a barbershop, a beauty salon, or a cobbler. However, without them having some sort of presence online, there is a high probability that they will struggle. A business will go over to their competition who are present online and invests actively in their digital marketing.

In some cases closure of the organisation, to ensure the spread of the virus remained to a minimum.

Cleaning business, has become front and centre of any organisation to function. Without such measures, the organisation simply can not operate.

These sort of measures are here to stay, and therefore a growth in demand for such services has spiked 10 folds.

This article will serve as a point of reference, to which you can continously refer back to through out your new cleaning agency journey.

There are several different cleaning business structures, such as a franchise, one man band, agency, cleaning companies, etc.

We have chosen an ‘agency’ structure as we believe this is the most lucrative and cost effective. It may require a bit more work then lets say just acquiring a franchise, but in the long run you will reap the fruits.

Furthermore, there are various different types of cleaning specialiaties, ranging from commercial, domestic, window, carpet, oven, gutter, etc. However we believe cleaning buisness especially when starting is best to start from the good old routine house work: dusting, ironing, mopping, vaccuming, scrubbing, etc.
