How To Get More Customers for Your Pressure Washing Business


In the fast-paced world of digital marketing, it's easy to overlook the power of tried-and-true tactics like postcards. But for pressure washing businesses, postcards can be a secret weapon for generating leads and boosting revenue.

This blog post isn't just about nostalgia for snail mail. It's about leveraging the strategic advantages of postcards in today's marketing landscape. Here's why you should consider adding postcards to your marketing arsenal:

  • Targeted Reach: Unlike scattershot digital ads, postcards allow you to target specific neighborhoods or demographics filled with your ideal customers. Imagine reaching homeowners with dirty driveways or algae-covered roofs – your bread and butter!

  • Tangible Impact: In a sea of digital clutter, postcards stand out. A physical reminder in someone's mailbox has a higher chance of grabbing attention than yet another email.

  • Measurable Results: Track your postcard campaign's effectiveness by including a unique QR code or discount offer that leads back to your website or phone number. You'll gain valuable insights into your return on investment (ROI).

But how good is the ROI, you ask? Mike, a pressure washing pro, shares his experience. He discovered that even with a modest 2% response rate and a 25% closing rate on leads, postcards delivered a significant 67% ROI. That's impressive considering only a small portion of recipients take action.

Here's the kicker: By strategically increasing your service margins (think raising prices!), you can further amplify the profitability of your postcard campaign. Every additional dollar in margin translates to a bigger return.

  • Craft a Compelling Design: Use high-quality images showcasing the dramatic before-and-after transformations your services provide. Include a clear call to action, like "Get a Free Quote" with a QR code or phone number.

  • Target Smart: Utilize mailing list services to reach homeowners in your desired neighborhoods or zip codes.
