I know. Seventy-thousand followers sounds sexy but you'll have to operate like a full-time media company to keep them entertained and that won't guarantee they'll turn into paid clients. Besides, are you sure that your dream clients are even on Instagram?

Or have you given up on dream clients? Because you're stuck or you can't put your finger on what's missing. Even if you have figured out what your problems are, do you know the solutions to solve them in the least amount of time? 

Deep down though, I'll bet you're tired of waiting for the kinds of jobs, recognition, and income that make other design firms successful. You know you deserve them. Being a designer is what you were born to do.

Wonder How Some Interior Designers Get HIGH-END Clients That Spend?

(Hint: It's not Instagram or SEO!)

If you want to find the people READY to pay your WORTH for your VERY BEST creative work, it's time for you to powerfully design YOU and the way you do that design thing you do. 

Get clarity on what isn’t working and why. Market to and close high-end clients. Rewire the limited thinking that is keeping you stuck and getting in the way of you being paid top dollar for doing your best creative work.

SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

The difference between unknowns, design leaders and legends is a factor of visibility. But being visible is about more than being seen, one of its underused definitions is available. 

LET'S DO THIS!

I'm self-motivated but may need more help. Do you offer additional services? 

Smartcuts is a self-study program but if you're interested in working with me privately or in my yearlong mastermind, send a note to team@mebydesign.com for more information. 

we've got some a's for your q's

I’ve already invested in one of your programs, is this program a good fit?

First of all, thank you for your business! I am so grateful for repeat clients that are a fit. As for Smartcuts, if we’ve worked together two or more years ago, yes!

If your business is earning over $500K in revenue, a 1-to-1 program is a better fit. Let’s set up a time to talk.

My significant other doesn’t want me to spend the money.

This is tricky I know, especially when you’ve committed to grow financially with another person and, for those of you with kids, to take care of your family. Some results of this program—confidence, joy, and certainty—are intangible and people who are numbers focused may not get the value of the work immediately. However, I would argue that many of the results of the interior design process—transformation, ease, harmony—are also intangibles. In other words, welcome to mastery of your sales conversation. Know this, the improvements you make in your marketing and mindset are designed to directly impact your bottom line and that will help you take care of your family better. This is also about you trusting your own judgment when it comes to your creativity. If you’re not used to taking care of yourself at the same level you take care of everyone else, it’s time.  

I’m a visual artist but this program appeals to me, will it help me?

In my work with interior designers, I've discovered that some were actually fine artists first. They went into interior design because it was the only way they thought they could make money. If you’re toggling both worlds, this program can help you to find clarity about what it is that you truly want to do.

I’m concerned about privacy.

Privacy is our utmost concern. When you register for this group, you are making a commitment to honor each other’s boundaries in terms of privacy and to give each group member your full respect. That’s listed in the TERMS & CONDITIONS. What happens in the group stays in the group.

I live outside of the US, can I still participate?

DEFINITELY! We live in a global economy and even though you will learn to serve the people in your towns, cities and states, because of the internet, your clients can come from anywhere. Think bigger. As long as you have a computer, a telephone and an internet connection, you’re good to go. 

I make furniture (chandeliers, wallpaper, beautiful thing for the home), will this program help me build my brand?

 I love beautiful and surprising products and one aspect of my business is helping the people who make them improve their communication to find their audience. It helps that I spent two seasons covering KBIS for HGTV.com (over 100 episodes) and have experienced first-hand what works and doesn’t work marketing products. The sessions in this program can easily be applied to a product-based business, especially if you are interested in marketing them to the trade. Not to mention the fact that you’ll be among an audience of interior designers. What better way to test market the brand you’re building and/or find potential customers, collaborators and brand ambassadors.

I would like my team members to participate, is there a group rate?       

Yes! Qualified teams can take advantage of a group rate for participation. Send us a note with the name of your firm, a link to your website, and the number of employees you would like to participate. We will set up a time to discuss program details with you.
