I offer several personal services in my business and these are welcomed by my customers. I try to add the personal touch and will often get the same person / team to revisit a previous customer as it adds a touch of familiarity and puts the customer at ease.

Personal Services For Quick Money

I'm thinking with such growing demand in personal services, the likelihood increases that there is quick money to be made doing "dirty jobs" nobody seems to have ever wanted to do any way, and that people today would much less do, as more personal services continue to get outsourced.

But it seems becoming highly localized in focus is the key ingredient to a lasting venture and concentrating on enhancing the service offering with alliances to other local service providers to present more comprehensive packages to your clients that no one outside the geographic area can match.
