For the past several months, I’ve been busy developing a brand new Staging Diva website and I’m finally ready to reveal all that hard work to the world!
This new site, ExpertHomeStagingTraining.com, was built to promote the new Home Study Kit version of the Staging Diva Home Staging Business Training Program and I’m very proud of it. (Please check it out, it’s gorgeous!)
If you know and love StagingDiva.com, don’t worry, it’s not going anywhere! I just wanted to let my blog readers know about this new home staging resource. You can learn all about the Home Study Kit there and read about my personal story of how I became a home stager.
The process of developing this new site made me remember one of the reasons I created the Staging Diva Directory of Home Stagers to help Graduates of my program. Building a website is a huge undertaking if you want it to look professional and create the right image for your company!
If you still don’t have a website to promote your home staging business, or your site doesn’t look as professional as you would like because you’re still struggling with the technical aspects of how to build a site, you should consider joining the home staging directory.
A full profile gives you a place to forward your own domain (for example, www.YourBusinessName.com) so you can advertise your ‘website’ on your marketing materials right away.
No more feeling sheepish when you hand out your business card and have to explain that you don’t have a website yet (which immediately tells everyone you are not very experienced in your business – not the message you want to convey when you’re trying to inspire confidence in your services!).
Your Profile Page on the Staging Diva Directory of Home Stagers serves as a portfolio with your contact details, before and after photos and lots of space for your “sell copy” which is where you explain why you are the right home stager to choose in your geographic area.
You’ll even be listed under 10 locations plus up to 4 states or provinces. When a Directory visitor types any of those locations into the handy search box at the top of the page, they’ll immediately find you and learn more about your business.
A Profile Page in this home staging directory is more than enough to serve as a website for you until you get your own finished. Many members never even get around to doing their own site. Some companies have been listed in there for three years now and that’s all they’ve needed to promote their home staging company.
Even if you already have a website, a listing on the directory gives your potential clients another easy way to find you.
Don’t make the mistake many others are making when they cut back their marketing because the economy is slow. If you don’t invest in promoting your home staging business, you won’t have a business. Cut back anywhere else you can that won’t effect how much money you make.
Now more than ever before you should do everything it takes to give you a leg up over the competition and to help get your business found online.
