    Joe Polish is *the* guru on cleaning service marketing. You should check out his info products... particularly the Piranha Marketing system.

    I think for  the promotion of local business direct mail marketing and SMS marketing can work effectively. Business listing on local business directory is an other way. But mail marketing can give good results in a short time.

    Everyone here has some great advice. From experience I can say that getting your website ranked will take time, and you would still need to know a little bit of online marketing knowledge in order to see where your traffic is coming from, who your audience is, and optimizing your website for maximum conversion. 

    Someone on this forum actually mentioned about direct mail marketing. This would be a pretty good strategy. It's also inexpensive. 

    Your first goal is to compile a list of individuals that you want to send your postcards to. 

    This is how you would calculate your ROI for a direct mail campaign. 

    Example of ROI for mailing 10,000 postcards:

    Mailing Statistics:
    Number of pieces mailed: 10,000 Total cost of the printing and mailing: $5,000 Average order value: $150

    Expected response rate: 2.00% (200 response) Expected sales from total respondents: 25.00% (50 sales orders)

    Return Statistics:
    Quantity of responses: 200
    Cost per each response: $25.00
    Number of sales from total response: 50
    Cost per each buyer: $100.00
    Total revenue of single campaign: $7,500
    Campaign's Return On Investment (ROI): 150%

    Life Time Value ROI:
    Number of orders per customer life time: 4 orders
    Total life time revenue of 50 customers: $30,000
    Total Return On Investment (ROI): 600%

    See if you can rent the side of a building and use it as advertising space and your target area. The costs involved may not be profitable to you, it really depends on the offer  and your ability to negotiate space perhaps on a performance basis.

    My loca marketing consists of having a page on my website for each of the areas I want to target.... So when someone searches 'essex', the essex page comes up which allows me to put a specific telephone number on that page for that specific area etc...

    If you're going to venture down the SEO route, I strongly suggest you do some research about the company that you're going to work with. There are highly ethical and "white hat" SEO companies, and then there are companies that offer "black hat" services that could get you're website banned from Google.
    I would also recommend checking out some highly authoratative blogs such as Moz, Search Engine Land and Search Engine Journal.
