4 Personal Shopper Home Business Tips

Feb 25, 2008
Do you absolutely love shopping? Are you searching for a low cost but highly profitable business that you can run from home? Well, a personal shopper home business may be perfect for you. In fact, millions of people just like you have started a personal shopper home business and tend to be quite successful in their efforts. In this brief article, we'll discuss proven tips and techniques that you can use right away to do it successfully.

First of all, you have to complete market research. This means that you should find a group of people who are interested in your type of service offerings, research the type of products that they're willing to buy and then become an expert in those products. For instance, let's say that you decide to become a personal shopper for busy executives and then find that they are looking for someone to purchase corporate gifts for their clients. In this instance, you would learn all about the buying patterns of executives, where they shop, types of gifts they buy and then become an expert on executive gifts.

Second, you would need to evaluate your competitors. This means you would need to evaluate the offerings of other personal shoppers that cater to your target offerings. You would need to evaluate their prices, marketing strategies, and marketing presence. Then, you would need to figure out how to make your personal shopper home business even more successful. For instance, do they charge above average fees? If so, you could offer discounts? Do they have typical 9-5 hours? If so, you can have evening hours. Either way, find a way to improve your services and make yours better than the competition.

Third, research the types of products that you intend to purchase for your clients. Whenever possible, use products that offer affiliate incentives. This way you'lll get paid two ways. You'll be paid by your client and you'll get paid for the company whose product you're marketing. And, if you really want to see your income soar, you can even quickly develop a product and sell it to your client for maximum profit. For instance, one successful personal shopper creates homemade candles and bath goods and sells those to her clients and generates huge profits.

Fourth, create a cutting edge and informative website and market it effectively. You won't need all the bells and whistles to get clients (like flash introductions and such) but you will need a powerful website. This includes a hard hitting sales page, a free offering that you'll give to prospects who sign up for more information, and auto responders. With a personal shopper business, a great give away product would be a short report that would be of interest to potential clients. For instance, if your target market is business owners, then you could create an article called "How to Build Client Loyalty with Gifts". Then, whenever someone signs up for the free gift, you'll collect their email address and send them periodic offerings (including a discount on your personal shopper service) to get them to sign up.
