Tailored Guidance to Help You Grow Your Freelance Business and Income
Let me take you back in time to the start of the 5th century.
A time of kings, queens, and kingdoms.
And of course, lavish castles lived in by royal families.
Living alongside those families were servants of all types. Some made all the meals, while others dressed each member of the family.
But there’s one group of servants who knew every nook and cranny of the castle … even the secret doors that led to hidden passageways.
While their main duties were keeping the candles lit, holding the keys to all the rooms and chambers, and keeping guests comfortable, they were considered a trusted member of the royal court.
In fact, they were held in high esteem.
I’m talking about a personal concierge.
Although there is a slight debate among etymological (word and language) experts, one thing we know for certain is the word concierge comes from France.
And like every profession, the concierge’s role evolved over time.
By the 18th century, they were supervising the entire staff who served the royal families.
As commerce grew, cities began constructing large buildings, including commercial, government, and administrative offices.
But each required a separate staff just to keep up with the maintenance.
And that staff needed the guidance of a concierge.
When fancy apartment buildings were constructed, the concierge niche hit another growth spurt. Often the concierge had a small apartment on the ground floor and received the tenants’ mail and parcels, as well as checked on all the comings and goings.
This was the beginning of the door-staff profession, which was used not just by apartment buildings but retailers as well.
By the late 19th century, and with leisure tourism taking off in Europe, hotels needed their own concierge services.
The hotel concierge was more like a personal secretary who greeted arriving guests, helped visitors make the right local connections, recommended attractions, and arranged visits.
Above all, a concierge was a guest’s adviser, secretary, and friend in an unknown city. They had the right information at the right time.
Now, let’s jump ahead to today and talk about another type of concierge … one who serves the copywriting industry.
