If you ask most men and women which job they hate doing around the house, ironing would probably be high on their list. The problem is people tend to procrastinate with ironing and then the pile grows. This makes the task almost insurmountable and extremely time-consuming.
you can earn good money pressing clothes for other people. with very little outlay, other than your time, you can begin earning money and building your own ironing business from home. as with all businesses, you may only have a few customers at first, but if you provide a professional service, the word will spread and soon you will be earning a healthy additional income from it.
Getting Started With Your Ironing Business
to start with you obviously need an iron and an ironing board. there are other accessories that would be useful like a sleeve board or a seam press, but as you are just starting out let’s keep it simple.
next you will need to make some notices. these can be simple but effective. if you have a printer you can design one on the computer and print it off. if not simply write on a 3″ x 5″ card. you should say what it is you do, who you are, and a phone number. another positive item to include is “no pets and non-smoking house.” people don’t want their clothes returned smelling of smoke or covered in pet hair. if you are a non-smoker without pets, definitely put this on your ad.this will increase your customer base.
Display your ad on advertising/notice boards at various locations. Often grocery stores, libraries or public meeting places will have a notice board.
Finally, Remember, when you are starting out, keep your price and overheads low.
