As a marketing firm, we have partnered with several large power washing companies. Now, you may not find Company 119 team members sealing a concrete driveway or climbing the ladder to clean a roof. We leave the power washing to you, the trained and skilled professionals, but we do serve your business needs in a different way—through smart, targeted digital marketing.

No matter their location or size, all power washing companies share many of the same concerns and challenges. Over the years, we have come to understand those central issues. In fact, they are usually the first words spoken during our initial calls with prospective power washing clients. Perhaps these statements will ring true to you:


“I can’t generate enough leads in my target markets.”

In 2020, we all know that you cannot rely on print or TV ads to bring awareness to your brand; you have to meet people where they are—and they are online. But more than that, generating quality leads in your target markets relies on having a strong, comprehensive marketing strategy that encompasses paid search, paid social, and local search optimization.


“We know our current sales technology isn’t working for us, but we don’t know how to fix it.”

In your industry, things move fast. You are always in the process of answering phones, responding to online form submissions, and following up with lost leads. If there is a bump in the road, the entire process suffers. You need a centralized hub for marketing and sales in place for optimal productivity.


“We are leaving money on the table due to issues with job quoting and dispatching.”

We hear this a lot. In some cases, generating new leads is not the problem. The bigger challenge is managing the incoming leads you do have. If you could develop and utilize a more streamlined, efficient method of job quoting, scheduling, and dispatching, you could handle more jobs in a day—and maximize your daily sales potential. Our developers have built technology for power washing companies to help them do exactly that, and we can put it to work for you as well.


“We are being edged out by the local competition in search.”

It can be really frustrating when you plug your power washing company’s name into the Google search bar every now and then only to see several other local power washers ahead of yours in the results. Is there anything you can do about it? The short answer is that it will take time. Search engine optimization is a long game, but the impact over several months can be significant.


“I am spending a ton to run ads on Google, and I don’t even know if they are working.”

Paid search can be very effective, so long as you are doing it right. Ad performance is dependent on a number of elements: targeting the right keywords, writing strong copy, designing effective ad graphics, having a compelling call to action, directing users to a high-quality landing page, and more. If you want to get the most out of your ad budget, make sure you have an experienced paid search team running your ads.


There are likely many more challenges we could list, and in most cases, the answer is the same: working with a professional marketing company can help you streamline your efforts and begin meeting—and exceeding—your business goals.
