Starting a detailing business is exciting, but it can be tough to know where to start. Want to earn $100k/year or even more? Keep reading! With the right tips and tools, you can skyrocket your business to success.

1. Start Close To Home

Use Your Phone Contacts: You know a lot of people! Scroll through your phone contacts. Offer them special deals or discounts. Everyone loves a clean car!

Facebook Friends: Post about your new business on Facebook. Your friends will want to support you. And hey, they probably have cars that need cleaning!

Family and Close Friends: They're your biggest fans! Offer them your services, and they'll surely help you spread the word.

2. Leverage Initial Clients for More Business

Happy customers love to share their experiences. Once you've done a great job, ask them to refer you to their friends. Here's a secret: word-of-mouth is powerful! When friends recommend you, their friends are more likely to hire you.

3. A CRM Is Your Best Friend

CRM stands for Customer Relationship Management. It's a fancy way to keep track of all your customers. With a CRM, you can:

  • Remember your customer's names and car details.
  • Schedule appointments without forgetting.
  • Send reminders for the next car cleaning.

Every successful business uses a CRM. It makes everything easier!

4. Set Up A Funnel & Follow-Up System

Here's how it works:

  1. Awareness: Let people know about your business. Use social media, flyers, and ads.
  2. Interest: Share before-and-after photos. Show how great cars look after you've cleaned them.
  3. Action: Offer special deals for new customers.
  4. Follow-Up: After cleaning a car, send a thank-you note. Offer discounts for their next visit. Stay in their minds!

A good funnel will keep bringing customers back.


Starting a detailing business and growing it to $100k/year is possible. Use the contacts you already have, ask for referrals, use a CRM, and have a great funnel. With hard work and these tips, success is just around the corner!
