Yeah being a personal shopper is both fun and rewarding but one has to be trustworthy to keep having clients and customers. But I agree with you that you need to promote yourself to have new customers but to keep them you need to do more like getting them quality products or items same with giving reasonable prices to them

I think it is more effective to promote your shopping business online. You just need to identify the social Media platform your audience are using a a closer targeted advert to convert them into buyer. You can hire the service of a social media expert to handle the job for you if you don't know how to go about it. You can also do a little promotion and awareness for your brand.

Yeah this kind of job will be great with social media platforms and one can even go international with it with the right clients. You just need to get exactly what they need and you are good to go. Sending them over to them wouldn't be a hassle. It will need one to get a courier services

It is possible to go international with this business. I have a friend who supplies the neighbouring countries his product using shopping business. I think the important thing is to know the proper channel to send product from one place to another without spending a fortune. The important thing is to deliver quality products to the customers.

You get the idea of the whole business. It can be a very lucrative with the right clients and business partners. I know some people that enjoy shopping and I often tell then they can turn it into a business and start shopping for others for money. No need wasting the talent that you can make cool money with

I don't think any business can do without being promoted either directly through social media and oral promotion or indirectly be making use of existing customers to refer us to people. The only time we may not need too much advertisment is when we have a good and suitable location for out business

Definitely, promotion or creating awareness for our business is still the best and as such we need to seek out the right channels to get it right but majorly using the social media especially Twitter and Facebook can be very helpful for personal shopping business. People are mostly now on these two apps
