Welcome to the Interiors Insider blog. A place to share helpful insider tips and inspire you on your journey towards a creative carer on your terms. 

As an interior design business coach, I’m often asked for advice on how to start a successful interior design business.

While there is no one-size-fits-all approach to business success, there are some key tips and strategies that I believe can help anyone who is looking to start an interior design business.

First and foremost, it is important to focus on creating a business plan. Your business plan should include a detailed description of your services, your target market, and your pricing structure. It should also include a financial plan that outlines your start-up costs, projected income, and your long-term goals. This will ensure that you have a clear vision of where you want your business to go, and how you plan to get there.

Second, you need to develop a strong online presence. This includes creating a website, establishing a blog, and utilizing social media to reach potential customers. Having a strong online presence will help you build trust with potential customers, as well as provide them with information about your services and your business.

Third, you should network with other interior designers and home decorators in your area. This will help you get your name out there, as well as connect you with potential customers and resources. Additionally, don’t be afraid to reach out to potential clients directly. Your goal should be to make yourself known to the right people and stand out from the rest.

Finally, don’t forget to stay organized. As with any business, organization is key to success. Keep all of your contacts and documents organized, and create systems to ensure all of your work is done in an efficient and timely manner. Starting an interior design business can be a daunting task, but these tips should help you get started on the right foot. Do your research, create a plan, establish an online presence, network with other designers, and stay organised, and you will be well on your way to success.
