I know a lot of you are just now getting into Instagram for business purposes. Instagram can be super-intimidating because everyone else’s feed is sooo gorgeous, and all the “best advice” out there says you should post on the platform at least once a day.
The million dollar question is, what in the world will you post?
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.
One of the things that scared me the most when I started organizing other people? …was the feeling of not looking like I knew what I was doing.
I bet you thought I was going to say not actually knowing what I was doing.
Well of course, that made me nervous a few times too… until I realized that every client wanted something unique and individualized from me anyway, not a “prescribed process”. I learned very quickly how to listen to the way she described her situation in her home and jump right into what was bothering HER the most. It’s a simple tip that changes the game.
