Three Reasons Why Your Last Maid Service Sucked

1. Your last maid service sucked because they paid their employees the old fashioned way.They were paid a commission. This system works if you're a used car salesman. This system works if you're a stock broker. But this system doesn't work if you're a maid. Because your clients want quality. And your employees want quantity.

2. Your last maid service sucked because they weren't really even a business. Starting a maid service isn't difficult. It isn't expensive. And it doesn't take a rocket scientist. And when something is easy to start, it's just as easy to quit.

3. Your last maid service sucked because they had an abnormally high employee turnover rate. What would you do if you had to clean your own home three times today? And what would you do if I told you that I was only going to pay you minimum wage today? You would quit.

    If I could leave a suggestion...get away from bringing the other cleaning companies down and solely focus on your own. This blog is starting to become an advertisement gimmick, when at first it had lots of great information. Oh, the mighty dollar.

  2. Thanks for the suggestion. I guess I have only one question. Are any of these three points incorrect?

    On a broad scale no, but titling it this seems like its implying that everyones last maid service sucked when that it most likely not the case.

    everyone has their own opinion as to "what sucks"...and im sure youve heard it before. Not being negaive-just reality, right?
