Welcome to Podcast Episode 5: Make Your First $1k On a Budget.
This episode is my audio guide on getting your professional organizing business started. It is all about getting your first REAL paying clients… so are you ready to start making money doing something that you’re basically already obsessed with?
In this episode, we’re going to talk about over 20 different ways to market your professional organizing business. Make sure you get your notebook and a pen… You’re going to want to take notes on this one.
I think that if pro organizers understood just how powerful each of these social media platforms could be for their business, we’d kick it into gear and start publishing our content more often.
One of the biggest barriers to just getting started on social media (aside from the feeling that you need to do all of them all the time) is just knowing WHAT the heck to post on each social network.
Here is my massive, epic guide to the types of content you should post on each platform, along with some ideas you may have not considered before about why you should be on each network in the first place. Pin for future reference!
Are you ready to talk about all things Instagram? If you’ve been joining our weekly live chats, you know I’m CRAZY about Instagram for professional organizers. For real… you’re building a business based on a beautiful, luxurious, organized lifestyle. How Instagram worthy is that?! This is why I have an entire Pinterest board devoted to Instagram strategies for pro organizers.
Starting from scratch, though, can be downright intimidating. That’s why I’m giving you this post to show you exactly how to use Instagram to market your professional organizing side hustle. Not sure if Instagram is right for you? Download the FREE social media checklist for pro organizers below.
As I state in my free course for starting a pro organizing biz, you just don’t have to do a bunch of free or cheap jobs for people in order to get the ball rolling on getting clients.
I believe in giving your expertise away and showing off your aesthetic online, because your blog can be like Tinder for your business. In just a post or two, your potential client can fall in love with you, your style & your branding and forget other organizers ever existed, or… swipe left and forget about you forever.
Your writing style, your ideas, and the photos that go along with your blog can go a long way in speaking to your future clients even if you aren’t a full-time organizer. In fact, if you are working another job right now or staying at home with your kids, one way to plant the seeds for a future career as a professional home organizer is to just start blogging.
As a pro organizer (even part time) taking the time to max out your Pinterest boards in a strategic way is not only fun, but a really important part of your business.
Your profile is something you can link to directly from Find My Organizer, your other social media accounts, and should definitely play a big role on your website.
