It's 11 O'Clock! Do you know where your clients are tonight?

In case you don't know this already, your clients are on Pinterest, Houzz and yes, even Linked In... oftentimes till the wee hours of the morning. They are also hooked on blogs that talk about decorating and how to style your home. If you don't have a profile on each of these three social media giants, you need to do it right now. They will all drive traffic to your website... big time.

Right now, I am participating in several Linked In group discussions. These are staging and redesign groups, for the most part. About 10% of my monthly traffic comes from those groups. I always get lots of clicks from Houzz and Pinterest. It is free traffic people!!

Take some time and establish yourself as a professional in the staging and redesign world by putting your profile, including your best pictures, on these popular social media sites.

I'm sure you are already on Facebook, right?

Also, you need a blog where you can post ongoing updates and info about you and your business. Frequently add tips and tricks about staging or redesign and people will enjoy hearing from you. Your competitors are doing this. It's easy and It's FREE.

It's called TOMA... Top of Mind Awareness. When your name is consistently in front of your existing clients and future clients, they will call you when the need for your services arises.

Ask for an e-mail address on your comment postcard that you leave with the homeowner after you finish a job. Be sure to place a stamp on it.Stay in touch with your clients!!! It's 5 X more expensive to acquire a new client vs. keeping an existing client. Nurture those relationships.
