How to Be a Personal Concierge

personal

In European and American countries, concierge can be found on most premises around the cities. In most schedules, especially for individuals in business, there is no time for those extra errands, or to do research on finding the perfect Asian restaurant. Being in the business, where managing your time is everything, it is nothing for individuals and companies to pay other individuals to do these duties for them. Though personal concierge services are a recent development, they are in high demand and are being used more and more each day.

Since the 90’s there has been an immense growth in concierge businesses and every year annually have increased even more. They are the experts in organization and time-management and can manage your paperwork and stand in those long queues you’ve been dreading all your life.

Employers are finding that they now not only have to create a safe environment but a supportive one for their employees. It is important to take care of these employees as they spend so many hours looking after others and attending to their needs while neglecting their own. Offering help to their employees can often boost the productivity of their services and in doing so, boost their client base.

According to expert, concierge services will be used more by business in the future, to adhere to the leisure of they’re employees. Especially for individuals such as the CEO and high levels of management. It’s important to know that they’re not corporate employees, but corporate suppliers. They only supply the service to corporate employees.

Finding passion
Being a personal concierge can be difficult and challenging. One must have a great passion for it, to maintain good service as it can become quite daunting working for corporate clients who are often strict and difficult.

If you are considering being a concierge as a career, you can expect duties such as light housekeeping, pet-sitting, car repairs which includes oil change and car wash, event planning, waiting in lines for your client, relocation services, plant care, gift buying, dry cleaning, travel arrangements, mail pickup, dinner reservations, landscaping, maid servicing, interior decorating, meal pickups, carpet cleaning, grocery shopping, locating collectables and any other personal errand you could think of.

What are the benefits?
Starting out, one will need between $2000 to $4000 as a concierge. If you already have a computer and an office setup that is and since it is a business which is service-based, it won’t require for you to make a financial investment.

If you are a good people’s person, are acquainted with businesses and know how to deliver a good service, you could easily start a concierge business, though it’s not the hardest business to run in the world, it sets alight a new set of challenges.

What does a concierge service do?

A concierge is someone who will do anything for you, but only if its moral, legal and ethical. Though some are not familiar with the service, most have at least heard about a hotel concierge, who is known as someone at reception who are the key keeper. Some even refer to them as a personal assistant, but concierge that are more independent than stationed at a hotel, usually belong to a company as employees. These companies have a list of employees that are hired by the public, both locals and foreigners visiting their country. They then render a ‘concierge service’ to these customers and assist them with duties such as the following.

They tend to offer everything from transportation services, grocery shopping, senior care, business referral services, they search for tickets to special events, arrange meetings, do modified house sitting, pet services, book restaurant reservations and even pick-up your dry cleaning.

They sound so, helpful. Imagine being in a foreign city, not knowing where to go or what to do, and then on top of that having to spend your holiday time looking for it. That’s why a personal-assigned concierge is so popular and helpful. Concierge services are experts in providing people with outsourced ‘assistants’.

With life’s constant changes and everyday challenges, more and more people are opting for ways that save time.

With services being offered by institutions such as MeetnGreetMe, providing an effort for resolving problems, similar companies have presented themselves as affordable and helpful to the public. This service provider is now an online and further developing a platform, which unlike others, only provide their services to travelers from abroad.

Concierge services are also rendered to VIP or customized services used by professionals.

A 24-hour concierge
A service offered 24/7, is a dream come true, as you could contact your personal concierge even during the early morning hours while everybody is sleeping. This is especially helpful when traveling, as the concierge can make the necessary arrangements or changes urgently. Be sure to check each service’s special list of terms and conditions.

What is it like being a concierge?
Apart from working in hotels and resorts, a concierge is also found on cruise ships, employed by traveling agencies, community care facilities and by private service companies. Sometimes a group of concierge report to and is managed by a chief concierge. This allows the workload to be easily distributed among a few concierges, rather than loading all the work onto one individual.

There are some companies that offer their services to private, business class people.
After being a concierge for a company, one could even own your own company. Being a concierge could be both fun and challenging. It all depends on the clients you have, but one thing that should never be compromised is respect. Although a concierge delivers a service to others, a high level of respect should always be maintained.
