How Should I Do The PR For My Cleaning Business?

You can pay an agency or freelancer worker to write your PR pieces for you or you can do it yourself.

Option1 – PR Agency/PR Freelancer

An agency tends to handle the writing and distribution of all articles for your cleaning business.

A new staff member/promotion/recruitment drive – tell the world you are growing, business is good and you are bringing jobs into the local economy. Raise your profile as an employer and as a trusted business

An award/recognition – Win something? Nominated for something? Rocking your industry? Yeah you are. Now go shout about it from all the hilltops (and on and offline media) that you can!
