Why? Why? Why? I just have to ask, "Why?"
WHY is it so hard for home stagers to stand up and be heard? Why are we so quiet about the service we provide? What's the big secret?
With first hand knowledge and personal experience behind you, think about it this way - A vacant home is empty, uninviting - sitting there waiting for someone (anyone) to pour some attention on it.
But a staged home offers possibilities, potential and promise.
What picture is coming to your mind? Do you really want to be thought of as a home where "no one's home"? Don't you want to be known?
So - home stagers of A/R - I want to hear from you, but more importantly your perspective clients want to hear from you.
If you don't tell people what sets you apart from the others or how incredibly talented you are - how are they ever going to find out?
If you don't tell people what you do for a living, how will they ever be able to use you or refer you?
If you don't hand out your cards or give presentations, what is going to make your phone ring?
If you don't do bids or consultations, what will sustain your business?
I know it's hard and perhaps out of your box - but I think it's time for home stagers to start tooting - and I mean loudly! No more of this wishful fantasy-land type thinking - I mean proactive, jump out of the boat and in the water type of thinking.
Don't let fear hold you back. JUST DON'T. You are so much better than this. Wanna know how I know?
Because you're a lot like me.
