Concierge101.com is an online resource that helps entrepreneurs launch their concierge or errand service successfully. The market for luxury services has grown over the last 30 years, surviving recessions and other difficult economies. In the last 5 years, in fact, an increasing demand for concierge services has erupted, creating a shortage of service providers. Since the recession of 2007 and 2008, more professionals are working longer hours and have less time to attend to personal matters. Additionally, high-income households are requesting personal concierge services more frequently. These two factors lend to the rising demand for “lifestyle management” types of services.
Starting your own business in any industry is never as simple as it seems. Launching a concierge service is no exception. Little things as simple as defining the service to answering service calls appear to be easy, almost effortless. Unfortunately, many startups have come and gone because they held that perspective…that this business is as “easy as 1-2-3.” Startups that would have flourished had they taken just a little more precaution and time for preparation were retired prematurely.
