Are you interested in using your gift of organization to make a profitable career as a closet organizer? If so, you might be having a hard time determining how to get started. This article will provide you with the details on how one becomes a professional closet organizer.
Here's a tip - marketing is the Key. If you already have a gift and a passion for bringing order to chaos, it’s simply a matter of study and experience in honing those skills to become a professional closet organizer. However, the most important component of becoming a closet organizer is learning to market yourself, since you’ll most likely be self-employed. Even if you have superior skill, people will only hire you as a closet organizer if they know about your services, that’s why marketing yourself is the very first thing you'll need to do.
In addition to the obvious steps like taking a marketing class for entrepreneurs and freelancers, start building your reputation and customer base by offering your services at a “friendly rate” (not free) to people you know. Get some business cards printed (try Vistaprint - they offer free business cards if you don't mind having their logo on the back), and start passing them out. As simple as this sounds, it will help you gather testimonials from satisfied customers to add to the cards. You can also make a website or blogspace online, which will make it MUCH easier to market your services.
Finally, look for places where other professional closet organizers are advertising their services and start looking for the ads which are running consistently. These are the closet organizer businesses that are already making money, so it will be good to model after them by following their advertising practices. In time, you’ll develop your own approach and grow your reputation as a great closet organizer.
