If you’ve ever tried Googling “how to improve cleaner retention” or “how to market a cleaning company” you know how hard it is to find helpful information like this for the janitorial industry.

So when we switched from being a cleaning company like yours to a janitorial software company, we vowed to provide our customers with as many educational materials as possible.

Here are 5 super educational, janitorial industry-specific workshops that are free to sign up for and accessible from anywhere.

1. Creating A One Page Marketing Plan

Truthfully the title of this workshop is a bit misleading, because in reality you’ll get so much more out of it than just a one page marketing plan.

Swept COO Matt Cooper put all 15+ years of his marketing experience to use when designing this workshop. He starts off this 60 minute session by helping you identify who you should market to. You’ll then work on choosing the best marketing channels for your business, and by the end of the hour, have crafted a message that will resonate with your ideal client.

2. How to Close 80% of Quotes

When we were a cleaning company, we developed a pretty effective sales strategy. So effective, that we were able to close 80% of the contracts we bid on and expand into 3 different cities.

To help you do the same, Swept Sales Manager Toby Keeping reveals our secret sauce for winning new business in this 60 minute workshop. With more than 10 years of sales experience, Toby will walk you through the steps of closing a contract — from surprising advice like not talking about cleaning, to calling up your competitors and asking for a quote — he’ll teach you all the tips and tricks to standing out in a sea of cleaning companies.


If you’ve already experienced the challenge of hiring great long-term cleaners, you know how time-consuming and expensive it can be. And if you’re not there yet, you probably want to avoid costly mistakes like hiring the wrong people.

In this workshop, Swept COO Matt Cooper will share with you a free tool that will save you 90% of the time it takes to hire great cleaners and allows you to build a database of cleaners that you can continue to hire from.

4. Engaging Employees for Higher Retention

One of our core beliefs here at Swept is that people should be at the centre of our business. Not only did we build our entire software around this idea, but we’ve created educational materials that teach better HR practices.

In this retention-focused workshop Matt offers tips, tricks and tools for improving communication and collecting feedback from your team so your cleaners feel empowered to do their best work.

5. Time Management Tricks for Janitorial Business Owners

Swept CEO Mike Brown understands how difficult it can be to manage your time effectively as a janitorial business owner because he used to be one! Working with top-notch coaches like Dan Martell has taught him many tips and tricks for better time management, and now he’s passing them on to entrepreneurs like you.

In this video workshop Mike goes over time management strategies such as time blocking, focus filters, the entrepreneurial scorecard, and revenue block-time. Below you’ll find a spreadsheet template to help you create your own Entrepreneurial Scorecard as Mike explains in the video.
