Things You Will Need
To follow the steps listed in this article on how to advertise your foreclosure cleanup business.
The first step to advertising your foreclosure cleanup business is to perform an internet search for "find home foreclosures" followed by your city and state. There are many web sites that list home foreclosures in your area. Write down the address of several home foreclosures. Then drive by the homes, write down the contact number for the bank which will be on the for sale sign, then call the bank and tell them what your company could do to improve the appearance of the home and give them a price estimate. Taking a pro-active approach is a great way to gain new customers, and potentially take customers from your competition.
The second step is to join local professional networking groups in your area that contain bankers. You want to meet the people who have the authority to decide who handles foreclosure cleanups for the bank. Managers and people higher up in the bank will be the ones at professional networking events, and this is a way to get to know the people who have the authority to hire you.
The third step to advertising your foreclosure cleanup business is to create a scrap book that you will show to potential clients. As the saying goes, "a picture says a thousand words". You can tell potential clients how great you are, but if you have a scrap book showing the before and after pictures of your work on foreclosed properties this will really make you stand out from your competition.
