Taking Advantage From Personal Assistant Service

If you prefer having a home-based business with a minimum capital, you may want to put up a personal assistant service business. People engaged in this business provide personal assistance to other people with their daily life activities. You may also serve an institution or business company as their personal assistant. In this way, you help the company with increased efficiency and productivity.

Providing a service to a private individual, celebrity, politician or to anyone normally requires you to do errands for them such as managing a calendar or schedules, making travel arrangements, shopping, communicating with other people on their behalf, researching, event planning, and other errands that they need to pass on to an assistant.

On the other hand, giving a personal assistant service to an institution or business company requires you to be an administrative expert. Some of the duties that may be required for you to accomplish are as follows: answer phone calls from clients, manage and respond to emails, sort out important messages from spam, manage calendar, do online research, prepares written documents, manage social media, travel arrangements, book hotels and flights, prepare company profiles, and so many other duties.

Before starting this service, you have to consider some factors. First, decide on what services you will offer. You may limit your services during the first few months, then expand it as soon as you get used to the ins and outs of your business. Next, compute on your price. You need to check your fees on every service type that you provide. Also, determine on how you wish to be paid. You have the option to charge clients via hourly rate, flat rate, or even mileage rate which may be applied when you go out for an errand to be accomplished. Lastly, set up your own website. This will serve as your marketing arm in finding clients. Furthermore, it serves as your profile portfolio. In this way, your accomplishments will be recorded that may help convince your future clients to get your service.

How to Market My Personal Training Services

Starting out in any business can be tough, but when you are selling yourself as the service you take it personally when the business does not take off. When you only have you to sell and not the strength of a name brand product, everything rides on how you present yourself and what you can do that nobody else in the same field can. If you are in the personal trainer business, you are probably asking yourself how to market my personal training services to the mass market so I can be successful.

The first step is going to be to get something on the web. If you cannot afford to have a professional site designed for you, you will have to at least get an interesting blog going. You do this so that everyone who is interested has a central place to go to get your information. Blogs are free and extremely easy to set up.

You can go to a site like WordPress or Blogger and be in business in no time at all. Select a good template that has the look that you want to portray and then start designing some pages. Your opening page should have all the information that you would want to tell a perspective client. You can then create links for health tips and also create additional pages that are aimed at certain types of fitness. Make sure you have one page that will serve as your blog where you can allow your guests to ask you questions and where you can give daily tips.

The next step is going to be to get some print media out on the market. Again, money is now a worry here because there are services that will print this stuff up at virtually no cost to you. Vista Print is a site that does business cards merely for the cost of shipping. For a small upgrade cost, you can totally customize them and have a real professional look. Carry your business cards with you all the time and make sure you have your web address printed on them so people can check out your site on their spare time.

The flyers are something that you can do on your own for the cost of a printer cartridge and some paper. You can copy and paste your logo right on the flyer and you are in business. Put these up around the local gyms and give them to friends. They can take them to work and put them up in their cafeteria or hang them up in their cubicle. The more expose you get the better.

If you are working within a limited budget, you are not going to be able to take out ads in the local newspapers, but you should be able to afford some of the neighborhood papers that go out. This is actually even better because it will allow you to advertise to people that probably already know your name. That alone may be enough to peak their curiosity and get you some customers.

Your next step is going to be to head back to the internet. While you may not be able to afford to advertise in the hard copy of the local paper, most of them have ads that you can subscribe to for free. The last part of your internet campaign will be to publish articles, the more the better. This is going to lend some legitimacy to your business and make you look like a true expert in personal training.

New Product Service – Practice Makes Perfect

All of us have had the experience of receiving bad investment advice. Often time, a co-worker or friend will tout a new product service or other investment opportunity that they claim has an enormous potential for earnings growth. Bitter experience has taught me that, most often, it is only stock hype.

You must be prepared to do the correct research, if you wish to be lucky enough to open the next superstock or new product service which will bring you untold money. But for this, you need to have a mind which can understand rapidly changing stock situations and also a perfect timing.

My best advice is to speak with someone who has been personally successful in playing the stock market. I’m not talking about someone who is a stock or commodities broker. This person should be an outsider who took a chance and won big. Ask this person how they did their research and what made them pick one stock over another.

If you have never invested before then it is better that you first practice it out. Take a moderately large imaginary budget and prepare a worksheet based on whatever happens in the real stock market. Do imaginary transactions based on real time prices but keep track of the transaction costs that are involved. Check out your performance after about two months whether you make some profits, lose your money or break even.

The research should show you the way. Select at company that is intending to market a new product service and purchase the relevant merchandise. Your income will be generated by a successful launch of the new product service. If it fails, then you will have to review your research. Was there an extensive market or audience for the service? Was the product launched in a professional manner? Did the company promote its service well?

Intuition is an amazingly powerful tool we can use to cultivate and predict a winner. Use with caution, however, intuitive powers are based on our own individual life experiences. The result of years of trials and tribulations help to guide our intuition. Professional athletes hone their game to be the very best. They’ve accumulated intuitive skills and developed their strength, over time – to win! Intuition is not exclusive, it is yours too!
