The Business of Helping Businesses
Hosting networking events
Press release service
Have a knack for planning parties and events? Consider starting a business to help other businesses plan and manage their company events. Events can include company holiday parties, galas, fundraisers, launch parties and more. If you can, try to team up with other local businesses like different venues, caterers, florists and more to offer discounts on rentals and services. It's also a good idea to take photos of the events you plan and to create a portfolio to show to future customers.
Virtual assistant service
As companies grow, it can be harder and harder to keep track of administrative duties. Virtual assistant (VA) services are a great way for businesses to lighten the load without hiring a full-time, in-house employee. If you enjoy doing administrative work, you can let other businesses outsource some of their tasks to you. And if you have experience in a certain field or niche, you can leverage that to find companies in need of your specific expertise.
