This Sunday marks the start of the spring, and spring is a symbol of new beginnings. People want a fresh start with the help of spring-cleaning. And it can also be a new beginning for starting a business as well. Here are some ideas for new businesses at the peak of the spring-cleaning season.
#1 Idea: Start Cleaning Supplies Business
Only Monica from “Friends” had cleaning on her mind 24/7. For the rest of us, cleaning is the thing that we should do, but we often forget to prepare for it in advance. When people are at the supermarket, they grab the food they need and miss the cleaning supplies aisle. Your online cleaning supplies business can be a time-saver for such people. The combo of all the necessary cleaners and the next day delivery is destined to be a hit!
Arnas Stuopelis, Chairman of the Board of hosting provider Hostinger, says: “Smaller online businesses can win by offering something that massive companies can’t: personal attention, and customizability. Don’t be afraid to put up a live chat on your website. People might want to consult with someone, and with a little bit of attention, you can answer their questions, offer customized solutions, and make some upsells.”
#2 Idea: Start Offering Cleaning Subscription
For some, the spring-cleaning might sound like an overwhelming thing to do. And your business can offer not only the supplies but also the encouragement. You can provide a cleaning subscription model, where you suggest cleaning one room at a time.
Let’s say that it’s the kitchen week, so you send suitable cleaning supplies for the tabletops, the sink, and the appliances, with a plan and tips on how to tackle the kitchen. The next week you can send the bathroom package, with supplies for the bath, shower, and tiles. This way, the cleaning doesn’t seem so bad anymore for the people. The spending is divided by weeks, so they don’t have to spend big amounts of money on one paying. And the process of cleaning is not as scary when it’s split week by week.
#3 Idea: Start Cleaning Services
When thinking about business ideas for spring-cleaning, remember that some people are valuing their time more than their money. So, they are more willing to pay for cleaning services instead of doing the cleaning themselves. Marketwatch proves this statement with numbers: “Global Cleaning Services Market was valued US$ 40.02Bn in 2017 and is expected to reach US$ 80.50Bn by 2026.”
Step into the train for the piece of those 80.50 billion dollars and start offering cleaning services. There are various ways to do so. It can be home or office cleaning. You can offer cleaning on-demand or regular cleaning. It can be a full-place service or a service for specific parts of the building. You can try to be as generic as possible or find a narrow niche for your cleaning business.
#4 Idea: Clothes Need Cleaning Too
The seasonal change also means the change of clothes, and they might need freshen-up. At first sight, the spring-cleaning is not associated with clothes, but you can offer that anyway. With the raising awareness for the consumerism, people are buying higher-quality clothing, that might require higher-quality maintenance. And that’s what your business can offer to the people.
Be prepared for the upcoming spring with a new spring-cleaning-related business. It can be as simple as an online cleaning supplies store. Or you can turn it into a cleaning subscription package. You can start a new cleaning service for homes or businesses. Or you can offer professional care of quality clothing. There are many ways for you to have a fresh start this spring.
