EP 311 | The Right Vendor with Daniel House Club
February 14, 2023
As design professionals, we are called on to do more than create beautiful spaces. We play a critical role in helping our clients make informed decisions about how to best allocate their renovating or decorating dollars. In this episode, we dive into the key considerations for advising clients on where to splurge and where to save. From the perfect sofa to the right lighting, we’ll talk vendor categories and give tips and insights to help you make smart, informed recommendations every time.
In this episode we learn:
- figure out what clients get really excited about and splurge in that category
- keep a close eye on exactly where you are in your project budget
- even if you can afford it, always assess if it’s actually the best option
- invest in the future of your business so you get advice on how best to move forward
Stay focused and be clear about what you offer your customers – don’t venture out into areas you aren’t capable of managing. Even if you can make the time to try something new, ask yourself if it will reduce the time you have to focus on your core business.
