Help, does anyone have any other marketing ideas for our home staging business?
So far we have: business cards, flyers, advertised in newspapers and online.
Any other ideas would be great.

    One thing I have learned is to exceed your clients expectations. Word of
    mouth advertising is by far the best advertising for us.

    As for your business, what about giving a piece of the home staging
    decoration (with your logo or contact info) to the new house owner?
    Something really works well in the house could generate some conversation
    for the home warming parties.

    If you need asian accents, you should definitely check out my store. Our
    wholesale limit is pretty low. our site is http://www.galleriapangea.comJason5yuan2007-8-17 3:35:41

    Hi Rick,

    How much are you paying for the current site? Have you heard of
    Digitalrailroad.net? It`s a photography/ecommerce platform for
    professional photographers. Easy to use, integrated with all the
    ecommerce, lightbox, search abilities. Also, you can submit your photos
    to their market place. Newspaper or magazines might buy your photos
    from there.

    It costs about 400 something per year. 20 gigs of storage. I think it is
    worth to check out. I am a member too. (I landed my first photography
    assistant job through the website).

    digitalrairoad.net (my referral id is 94284 if you decide to try it. free to
    try for 30 days)

    try partnering with real estate agents. I would go around and talk to all of the brokerages, and offer them a comission for any business they send to you, maybe 15 to 20%.

    You mentioned "online" as a part of your marketing strategy. I am curious to know which online avenues you are already exploring. Do you only have a site? Or any online strategies already in place?

    I tried to look at your site but had some trouble pulling it up. I would also strongly encourage a sound email campaign as LilacJames already mentioned.

    Feel free to message me I'd be glad to help!

    One thing you can do that will bring you several marketing insights is monitoring your competitors. By knowing what your competition is doing, you can improve your own marketing strategies. At my company, for example, we discovered a whole new - and efficient - marketing channel by observing the traffic sources of a competitor.

    I would recommend using Rivalfox (http://www.rivalfox.com). With this tool you are able to have a 360-degree view of what your competition is doing, and thus improve your own strategy.
