If you can answer yes to questions like these, starting a professional organizer business is something you should consider.
A professional organizer helps others to organize their spaces. Organization may come natural to you. For many others it's a difficult task. They welcome the help from a professional to take the chaos out of their kitchens, their closets, their storage areas, their offices, and many other areas of their lives.
Professional organizers go into the homes and offices of their clients, survey the space that needs to be organized, and make recommendations for the most efficient use of the space. As an organizer, you can expect to have to do a little therapy as you will most likely need to convince your clients that they will need to purge some of their possessions before the organizing begins.
Organizers can work with what the client already has or they can help their clients pick out pieces of furniture, closet organizational systems and other tools that will facilitate the process. If additional organization tools need to be purchased, it will depend on the clients' wants, needs, and ultimately their budget.
Startup costs for a professional organizer business are nominal if you do it independently. Some of the things a professional organizer may want to consider investing in are business cards ($10 and up), a portfolio including photos of spaces you've organized (about $50 if you create it yourself), and a website (low-cost for a basic site, costs vary if you have someone design and implement it for you).
There are some franchise opportunities for professional organizers, also. Initial franchise fees can run from $15,000 on up, and many of the companies require that additional working capital be on hand for startup.
How to Market It
If you are starting an independent professional organizer business, marketing can start with word of mouth, hanging flyers in public places. Both of those options cost no money. If you have a marketing budget, placing ads in local papers that target homeowners and businesses is a good start.
If you are stating a franchise, the company may already have some marketing in place for you, but it's a good idea to do some of your own, independent marketing.
Online marketing is important, too. Having a basic website with your contact information, details about your services, and good quality digital images of your work is an excellent marketing tool. In addition to creating an online presence for your business, you'll also want to be sure to place a listing of your business in the Yellow Pages so that potential customers can find your business. Good luck with your new business venture!
