Hey guys! New to the business so thank you ahead of time for answering all my entry level questions! I plan to start out slow and test the water but if I get quick steady results would spend on marketing/advertising and the equipment to run the business! But for now I'm plan to start out with a portable and do it in my spare time. (3 days a week+evenings) so currently I'm having door hangers made and fixing to purchase a machine. My question is what to expect?
•Is the return on investment as fast as one would think?
•are most costumers loyal or mainly a one time cleaning?
•what would you expect to make 3 days a week? 150 1000?
•at what point should I establish an LLC?
•is insurance a must right off the start? If so what's the average cost?
I know it's important to protect yourself but when?
•what is the most common type of community that purchase carpet service? Rich/middle class?
I have many more but that should get us started! Lol I really have done a lot of research on line.. google/forums but it is mostly contradicting so I figured I would just ask the guys that do it everyday.. thanks for your help!
