I started my own cleaning business and I currently clean vacant apartments for a apartment company. Now I’m looking to expand. How do I get contracts to clean local offices etc. I live in Rock Hill SC.
Thanks

Pick a tall mutli-storeyed building, go up and down the elevator, put on your biggest smiley face and present your card to the person at the front desk who will always be your best friend next time you walk in with a box of doughnuts! Guess who s/he will call next time their cleaning crew screws up? Once you are in one office, then the rest of the building is yours for a box of doughnuts!
