Congratulations to Staging Diva Graduates Jodi Whalen of Pear Tree Home Designs (NJ) and Susan Atwell of Atwell Staged Home (NY) for winning 2nd and 8th places respectively in the SureFit Sure Solutions Sweepstakes! The challenge was to show a dramatic room transformation using SureFit’s slip covers. A SureFit panel of judges selected 8 winners from all entries received and then the public voted for their favorites to determine the order.
Not only do Jodi and Susan get the bragging rights and their winning makeovers featured on Surefit’s website, there were cash prizes too!
Susan learned of the contest through Twitter and shared the news with Jodi who also entered. Susan commented, “It’s not how I expected Twitter to bring me income!” I was pleased to see Susan tweeting about it, which is one important way to leverage company news like this.
When I learned the news from her tweet, I decided to include this story in this newsletter, which means it will make it onto at least two of my blogs and one website, with links back to both Jodi’s and Susan’s profile pages on the Staging Diva Directory of Home Stagers.
If you’ve taken course 4, “Staging Diva Sales and Marketing Secrets to Boost your Home Staging Business” you know this is important because the more links you get to your web page, the higher up you rank with search engines! And the higher you rank, the easier it is for potential customers to find you!
If you’d like to learn other ways Twitter can help you expand your home staging business, check out the Home Stager’s Guide to Twitter. It’s written for total beginners and those with more Twitter experience will also find Twitter marketing strategies they can use.
Reader Jayne Steuart of Pearl Home Staging and Redesign in Colorado said, “The Home Stager’s Guide to Twitter is comprehensive, easy to read and way too much fun! I consider myself to be techno-challenged, but this guide actually made me feel quite smart. I adore you for that!”
