A Joint Collaboration between Yellow Pages SME and Darby Media.
A Changing Environment?
Dear Interior Designer,
Attracting clients and acquiring new leads has drastically gotten more and more difficult over the last 10 years.
Especially for the interior design industry.
These days you'll find more and more new companies sprouting up and flooding the social media platforms with dirt-cheap offers to attract clients.
To make matters worse, some of these fly-by-night one-man-show firms deliver poor services that only serve to tarnish the reputation of the entire industry as a whole.
And we haven't even mentioned the DIYers dealing directly with contractors and choosing to bypass a Professional Interior Designer all together.
Unfortunately, as technology improves, it is only expected to get worse.
Thankfully, not all is lost for the serious firms and agencies who pride yourselves on customer-centric services and quality designers' work. Business owners who know beautiful design and quality workmanship never come cheap.
And most importantly...
That there are clients willing to pay a premium for professionalism, expertise, knowledge and competence.
For these companies, we're organising an exclusive ID event to discuss specific marketing strategies for business owners and marketing managers within the interior design space.
This live event will help agencies who are already advertising through various mediums and want to reap a higher ROI or younger firms that are exploring alternative strategies to attract quality leads and enquiries.
We'll cover different advertising avenues, both online and offline, which platforms to build a solid foundation in, how to scale marketing efforts, and how much budget to set aside.
During this live 3-hours event, you'll gain deeper insights on the changes in the interior design scene over the last 20 years as well as the strategies and actions interior designers can rely on to attract qualified leads moving forward.
Note: This event includes a 20-mins tea break
Our Promise to You
We didn't want to organise just another event where you learn theories and ideas. Instead, we've specially analysed past campaigns and received feedback from the industry to prepare this live workshop.
The strategies we're about to share with you have been proven to work. In fact, we will even show you a couple of successful case studies and results.
You'll walk out of this event with a much better understanding of a successful marketing campaign. And more specifically, an action plan for serious businesses.
