Times are tough, especially around Chicago. One way to get by in the “gig economy” is to start your own micro-business. There are many things you can do right away, such as a lawn service, dog walking, or better yet, pressure washing.
By purchasing and learning how to use a pressure washer, you can be in business quickly. A pressure washer can be used to deep clean a home’s exterior, a backyard deck, driveways, and even vehicles. In fact, many companies contract with pressure washing companies to keep their fleets clean. The opportunities are nearly endless.
In addition to your pressure washing equipment, you’ll also need a van or a truck, as well as the appropriate cleansers for the various jobs you’ll be doing. You can find a pressure washer for sale in Elgin, and Chicagoland has many places to find a good deal on a decent used truck or van.
The next step is letting everyone know in the Chicago metropolitan area that you’re open for business; you’ll need business cards. You can also take out ads in the local penny saver papers, put up flyers and make a direct sales pitch to businesses with vehicle fleets. Marketing is where you need to get creative.
Finally, if you don’t already have it, you’ll need a business license, insurance, and bonding. While it seems like a lot of work, it will pay off in the end.
