Embracing social media platforms is an economical and effective way to share the exciting news about your new business, especially in today's interconnected world! It allows you to swiftly reach a wide range of audiences with your advertisements, and gives potential customers a glimpse into the heart and soul of your business.

Moreover, never underestimate the power of networking - it's a potent, cost-free resource! By sharing and promoting your business with family, friends, colleagues, and neighbors, you're setting the stage for organic growth within your service area.

Here's to the successful launch of your business and all the promising opportunities that await you both in the future!

Business cards are a good start and will give you a sense of professionalism. Word of mouth is another powerful tool especially when starting out. Just tell your family and friends to tell their friends and hopefully that will create a large circle of people who know about your business and could be interested in it.
I do see some of the classic poster ads around my town but I’ve noticed most businesses use social media as an ad platform. I don’t know how much an ad costs on Facebook or instagram but my assumption is it’s reasonable.
Lastly, wanted to say a congrats on your engagement, really sweet to hear that and I am genuinely happy for both of you.
I wish you both a good luck in your business.

Hi Bianca! Utilizing social media for marketing is a great way to boost the presence of your business, but it can be time consuming. Often the "free" or low-cost resources take a lot of time. I would recommend the business cards and social media suggestions you've received, but I would strongly recommend taking some business courses at your local community college as well. Even if you don't want to pursue a full degree or business certificate, the marketing, business, budgeting, accounting and other classes can help you gain a lot more understanding of the areas of the business and where you can strengthen your own business. The classes at a community college are inexpensive (sometime free, depending on your circumstances) and can be taken in the evenings or online, depending on which school you choose. If you are still in high school (based on your age), you can take classes while you're still enrolled as well.

Good Luck with your business and congratulations on your upcoming wedding with your fiancé!

Hi Bianca! First, congratulations on starting a cleaning business with your fiance! Business cards are a great start. I would hand these out to friends/family or even your neighbors. You can even stop at local businesses too. I would have a website so people can clearly see what you clean (residental only, commerical only, etc) and have your prices listed. Try to utilize social media and create accounts for your business as well. You guys will have a clientele in no time! Best of luck!
