The best way to keep in touch with current and potential clients is with a smartphone. Not only can a smartphone help you connect with your clients, they also contain a multitude of other useful features. Keep track of your appointments with a calendar and set reminders before each event. Utilize your smartphone’s camera to take before and after photographs – with client permission of course. If you have a job in an unfamiliar area, use the maps app to plan your route ahead of time. Before leaving, check the weather forecast and bring the appropriate equipment.
Outside of build-in applications, you may also download individual apps onto your smartphone. Be sure to keep hydrated and well-fed using Grubhub or other delivery apps. Apps like TurnoverBnb can help your cleaning service connect with new customers and manage payment for recurring clients.
A great tool to use in conjunction with a smartphone is a smartwatch. If your hands are dirty, simply check notifications with the flick of a wrist. Checking your phone during cleaning can be interruptive and ruin your drive. Quickly answer calls, skip songs, and respond to messages before picking up where you left off. Most smartwatches now also come equipped with technology to track your activity. Set a daily step goal and use this feature to check your progress throughout the day.
And of course, use a smartwatch to keep track of the time.
