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.
