Hi Susan,

Can you clarify on what you mean by home staging business? Is this the one where you decorate a house for sale? Or helping people decorate their place?

There are two things I think are valuable. First, highlighting your service offering. What services does your service offer. Secondly, networking to build your network. I suggest joining a local Toastmasters club to meet people and share your services. Networking can get people to know you. This could be done through zoom.

Regards,
Will

Hi Susan

For yours or any other small business I recommend taking advantage of all the free classes and resources available to you through your local small business development center and small business technology development center. You can find your local resources through the SBA website.

Hi Susan,

Once you have your materials or website, I would be happy to take a look and give you feedback. Please start networking and meeting people to share your work. Try your local small business association and toastmasters to meet people.

Good luck!

Good morning! Yes it is the service of consulting and/or decorating and organizing a persons home usually prior to listing for sale. I’m working to obtain my real estate license and pair the two together. Thank you for the advice. I will definitely look to join.
