What To Expect: Professional Organizer Salary
So you’re interested in becoming a professional organizer. That’s great! It’s going to be a lot of hard work and dedication to get started, but the rewards will be well worth it. Now comes the really important question – what is a professional organizer salary? The answer depends on more than one factor:
How much experience do you have?
Obviously, the more experience you have under your belt, the more you’re able to charge for your services. When you’re just starting out, you can expect to earn on average anywhere from $25,232 to $39,832 per year. After about a year’s experience, your income can increase to a range between $30,701 and $61,000 annually. Once you have at least 10 years experience, your income could increase to $80,000. These figures, of course, depend on some other factors…
Have you been trained in the field?
While it’s not necessary to become certified to work as a professional organizer, investing in professional training can certainly boost your income. If you’re interested in gaining hands-on professional organizing skills, consider QC Design School.
What is the demand for professional organizers in your area?
Do some research within your city – how many other businesses are offering similar services as you in your area? More importantly, what are they charging? Knowing this will help you set competitive prices for your services. Chances are clients in a larger city will be willing to pay you more for your services, but your competition will be far greater.
Do you specialize in an area?
Are you able to offer your clients something your competitors don’t? Perhaps you have a basic knowledge of feng shui, and can offer a quick feng shui consult with your organizing services. Anything that sets you apart from your competitors can definitely help with your income.
