We're less than a week away from the release of my first online course, How To Launch An E-Design Business! I thought I'd devote today's blog post to sharing some more details about it since the last time I talked about it on this platform was way back in November. Time certainly does fly and so much has happened behind the scenes since I first talked about it publicly on LuAnn Nigara's A Well Designed Business podcast.
(Psst! Programming note: if the idea of starting an e-design business isn't up your alley, don't worry! We'll be back to our regular design content here on the blog on Friday!)
In case this is your first time hearing about the course, let me start with a little bit of background on why I chose to dip my toe into the education side of things.
Last summer, I started receiving a steady stream of inquiries from folks who had come across Mix & Match Design Company and wanted to know more about my business model, how to structure e-design services, and how they could take those pointers and apply them to their own businesses. While I was happy to chat with folks one-on-one, it quickly became apparent that I could help a lot more people if I created an online course that taught them about how to get started in this business and addressed their questions. Based on the conversations I had with folks, it became clear there just aren't enough resources out there that are targeted specifically toward starting an online interior design business.
I believe that there is plenty of room for everybody in this e-designer niche, and I want to help people get started on the right foot. Being an entrepreneur is tough, and being one in a new(ish) industry makes it even harder. If I can use my experience and knowledge to help smooth the way, I'm all in. I've done all the hard work of strategizing, iterating, and going through trial and error so you don't have to! This course will provide an amazing foundation for you to get your virtual interior design business up and running quickly so you can start working with your ideal clients.
Are you ready to begin your journey and start your own online interior design business?
Here are some more details about the course to see if it's the right fit for you and your goals:
The main course material consists of approximately four hours of recorded video, an 18+ page workbook, and a resource guide. I'll be sharing some surprises bonuses as well - stay tuned for those! It will be hosted on an online learning platform and will be self-paced, so you can work through it on your own timeframe. You'll always have access to the course and if there are updates to it in the future, you'll receive those as well.
The four main modules, plus an introduction and conclusion, cover the following topics:
The rise of the e-design industry
Defining your business model
Building out your e-design business
Marketing your services (getting those clients in the door)
Processes, tools, and workflows you need to run your e-design business efficiently and effectively
If you'd like to read more details about what's in each of those modules, head on over to this page!
And, because starting your own online business is more fun when you have the camaraderie of other folks just like you who are also starting their own businesses, when you enroll in the course, you'll have the opportunity to join a Facebook group reserved exclusively for those who are taking the course. I'll be there to answer your questions, offer advice, and cheer you on!
Finally, let's talk about cost. The course will be offered for $495 as a one-time payment, and there will be a payment plan option as well. It's an investment, but well-worth it if you're ready to be your own boss, design a business to suit your lifestyle and career goals, and begin offering your e-design services to clients all over the country (and hey, maybe even around the world!). I'll be right there with you to guide you along every step of the way.
