Jenks Window Cleaning Companies
As the owner of one of the many Jenks window cleaning companies, it’s important to build up your storefront and Commercial clientele. It’s not only important for residual income, but it’s also important when you go to sell the company. With commercial window cleaning, you are able to show your potential buyers your exact monthly income. Whereas with residential window cleaning, that money isn’t guaranteed. Residential window cleaning customers are mostly just contacts. You aren’t expected to automatically show up on a certain day. With residential window cleaning customers, you must schedule an appointment and verify that it works with their schedule. On the other hand, which commercial window cleaning, you just show up on a certain day every month. It might be that you show up every 3 months. Regardless though, they are expecting you and that is verifiable income for a potential buyer.
Excuses window cleaners use
Every owner of all the Jenks window cleaning companies has aspirations to eventually sell their business. Not many window cleaners want to stay in this industry forever. It’s not a very glamorous industry to get into. However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t work hard to make your business the very best it can be. Why not grow your business as much as humanly possible? The harder you work now, the more your Jenks window cleaning companies will be worth in the coming years. It seems like everybody has excuses for why they’re not a bigger company. I know I had my own excuses these last couple of years. Essentially though what it all boils down to is laziness. There are lots of window cleaning companies that complain because they are located in a small town. Well, I got news for you, there are plenty of successful companies in small towns!
Worrying about Bucket Bobs
There is a widespread feeling among the owners of Jenks window cleaning companies. The widespread feeling is that there are too many window cleaners making YouTube videos about window cleaning. They fear that these videos are making window cleaning look too easy. As a result, everyone is concerned that these videos are encouraging guys off the street to start their own window cleaning company. Furthermore, this would theoretically lead to a crowded market and more competition on pricing. In my opinion, I don’t think this is the case at all. Even if it was true that these videos are attracting Bucket Bobs, they aren’t going to last long. They are going to realize just how hard it is to get customers unless they clean windows for pennies on the dollar. If they clean windows for rates that low, they aren’t going to be able to pay the bills.
Bucket Bobs failing
According to Forbes Magazine, 80% of businesses fail within the first 18 months. If this is true for legit companies, what percentage of bucket Bob’s fail? I’d imagine they have a much higher failure rate than the average company. Most of the guys that start their own Jenks window cleaning companies don’t consider the business side of things. They just buy some window cleaning equipment from their local hardware store and figure they are in business at that point. If only it were that easy! Arguably, a lot of the window cleaners in the Jenks area are uninsured. At the same time, it’s probably very hard to contact them. I’m not trying to hound or beatdown bucket Bob’s, I’m just making a case that they probably won’t be in business long. It’s just not something to worry about for all of the owners of the legit Jenks window cleaning companies.
