I came across two interesting businesses that are new for the 21st century
- The personal concierge
A personal concierge service runs on the most basic of premises. People want things done but don’t have the time to do them. This works extremely well with tourism. Picture yourself in a strange town knowing no one and this service is on offer! Concierges are finding their services are needed more than ever. People are more and more comfortable with the concept of passing along their errands to personal concierges.
Services to Offer
With the industry growing and developing the way it is, it’s impossible to give a complete list of services personal concierges provide. Who knows what new service might be offered next week? But this list of some of the services personal concierges can offer might help you come up with a few ideas for services you can provide to your clients:
- Light housekeeping
- Car repairs, oil change, car wash
- Event planning
- Plant care
- Running miscellaneous errands
- Relocation services
- Making travel arrangements
- Meal pickup; some chef services
- Dinner reservations
- Interior decorating
- Maid service
- Carpet cleaning
- Concert/movie reservations, etc.
- Grocery shopping
- Locating hard-to-find items and collectibles
- Personal Walker
These people charge by the kilometer and walk with the client giving them information about the walk, listening and chatting. There are many reasons why someone would want this service as we all know that walking alone is ok sometimes but generally works better with someone. This also leans its self towards tourism as well.
So it is interesting what the 21st century has to offer! One clear fact remains, in order to do this business communication and business skills are required! We could help!
