2.  Home-Based Business Idea of the Week - Cleaning
  Services Broker

I'm the first to admit cleaning house is definitely one of my least
favorite activities. Couple that with a chronic lack of time and
you're describing a huge segment of the population. One that
isn't going to be shrinking any time soon.

As a cleaning services broker you can tap into this market. A
cleaning services broker basically brings together people wanting
cleaning services performed and those prepared to perform that
service for a fee.

Start out by advertising for cleaners. You'll need to check
references and test their skills. You may also want to consider
bonding them. Once you have several cleaners on your books
(as independent contractors, not employees), you can then
start advertising your services to prospective clients.

A Yellow Pages listing is a good place to start (although this
does require quite a bit of forward planning) as well as classified
ads in your local newspaper. Professionally produced flyers/
brochures that can be distributed in a letter box drop in the
geographic area you are targeting will also generate good enquiry.

You should set yourself up so that you bill the client for the cost
of the service and you pay your cleaning contractors. The
difference between what you pay your contractors and what you
receive from clients is your commission.

You can gradually expand your business too by adding more
services over time. Logical extensions include window washing,
garden maintenance, carpet cleaning and pet sitting, to name
just a few examples. And don't forget to think outside the box
when targeting clients. Consider, for example, real estate agents
who need cleaning services for rental properties between tenants.

In response to the concerns of many people who complained
they were unable to sign up 4 people within 3 days (and
thus qualify for the $10 per name deal), the owners of the
Listmaker program are shortly going to be introducing a free
trial membership program. 

All current members at the time will be upgraded to the $10
commission level and new people will be able to earn their
first 4 referrals to get $10 qualified through either free or paid
members who join under them.

Free members will have a time limited trial, be able to earn
commission, but only on the first few levels.

Importantly these free members will be added to your mailing
list making your investment even more valuable.


Here's the lowdown on the CCC program:

1.  Costs $9.95 to join.  For that, you get a start up
package which includes camera ready materials and a 1/4
pound candy sample.

2.  You have to purchase products - this is MLM, NOT a
pyramid scheme!  You have to spend $30 a month
on product in order to earn your commissions. 

3.  You have to WORK.  If that puts you off, stop reading now.
If not, then you'll be happy to learn that as part of the system
you receive a 30 day training course, one instalment a day.
Although a lot of the promotional and advertising resources
are free, you WILL need to spend money on advertising.  That's
the nature of business ... any business.

4.  Payout on the program is 70% over three levels - 40%,
20% and 10% with up to an additional 15% profit sharing

5.  Other factors to take into consideration:

=> Products that people actually WANT, not that they are
forced to order.

=> An established, reputable business.  These people have
been in business since 1983 and started network marketing
in 1996.

=> You get a free website to promote that includes a chat
room as well as a forum where you can obtain additional
help and support.  This free website, along with the 30 day
marketing training course, provides a simple system that
has brought in more than 50,000 distributors.

=> Same financial rating as Nestle & Hershey (Dunn &

5.  Tips for Newbies

TIP #1:
With Windows 98, you can drag items around directly on the
Start menu to change the order or which sub-menu an item is
located on. You can also right-click and delete, or see the
properties of the shortcut on the Start menu.

TIP #2:
To quickly change screen resolution for different applications,
right-click anywhere on the desktop, and then click Settings.
Under Screen area, move the slider bar to the desired resolution.
Your video card will determine the number of colors you can
use at a particular resolution.
