Two days ago I wrote about the most common outside services you’ll need to source for home staging clients.
Have you figured out where all these services will come from? If not, this is a great activity to do during slow periods, as it will increase your business over time.
Many home staging projects have to be done under VERY tight timelines. Knowing who you can call for help (before you need it) will significantly reduce your stress level when trying to get a house picture–perfect in record time.
You can start your research by:
- asking others for referrals
- looking at ads
- asking community and homeowner associations
- asking retailers that would deal with the people you’re looking for (eg: local paint stores)
- searching the internet or yellow pages
While it may not seem exciting to track these resources down, it should be a priority. You’ll learn more about how to identify the right people to work with in course 5 of the Staging Diva Training Program, “Over 30 More Ways to Make Money in Home Staging.”
At top left is a photo of me doing a home staging consultation, which was featured on a TV show. I took viewers through all the steps of a home staging project or complete transformation…. the initial client consultation, planning and recommending the changes, removing old items to storage, bringing in rental furniture, and then the finishing touches like flower arrangements and accent pillows on the day of the open house. It all had to be shown over a three day shoot and I had pneumonia for the last two days of it. But that’s another story, the show must go on!
