A Better Way to Search Calgary Cleaning Job

Whether you’re just entering into the housekeeping industry or you’ve been at it for years, finding enough obligations to keep yourself busy and keep your business earning money can feel like a constant struggle. Especially when you’re self-employed, the work of digging up more business can feel like a lot, and even though your livelihood depends on it, it’s not time and energy that you get paid for. It’s hard enough making sure that your calendar is booked; get smart about your business and start using the right sources to find more clients.

 

Working for yourself is supposed to give you freedom and independence; you get to decide your availability, your only boss is the customer, and you know that every dollar you earn goes into your pocket, without anyone taking a cut. It’s the kind of dream thousands of Calgarians wish they were living, but with that independence and self-ownership comes uncertainty. How do you get together enough clients for a full work week, what do you do when one of your clients doesn’t need your services anymore and how do you replace them?

 

While many in the industry say that there’s no advertising better than word-of-mouth, it’s a kind of passive advertising that you have no control over. You can do the best job in the world, but unless your clients are talking about it, and unless their friends and colleagues are looking for housekeepers, it may not result in anything for you. The good news is, there are better ways to find cleaning jobs in Calgary by going online and connecting with the people who are looking for housekeepers.

 

Generic classifieds are a bit of a blunt tool in this regard; people may go on them to find just about anything, from movers to used TVs. But they are a nightmare when you want to find a specific service, like housekeeping, and you have a laundry list of questions. On purpose-built sites like Housekeeper, you can respond to help wanted ads that detail all the client’s needs, including things like availability, area, whether or not you bring your own supplies, and a list of services that you provide (i.e., rooms that need tackling, extras like dishes or carpet shampooing, etc.). You also create a profile for yourself that potential clients can find by creating their own searches; it helps to make these profiles as detailed as possible to bring in business that works for you. Sites like Housekeeper also provide features that generic classifieds don’t, such as identity protected phone calls and emails when you contact someone through the platform, a customer support team, and organizational tools like favourite lists that make it easier for potential clients to find you.

 

You don’t have to sit on a long bus ride to Banff to clean hotels to find steady work as a housekeeper in Calgary. When you go to the right places, you can keep up a steady stream of clients to help you build your clientele and improve your bottom line. You are your own boss and it’s time to start acting like it; if you want more opportunities, it’s up to you to find them.
