Blogging for professional organizers: A year of seasonal content ideas

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.

#FBLIVE: How to package your organizing services (+ targeting high-end clients)

Problem of the day! Layne (that's Lay-knee) has been organizing for awhile, and says, "I want my client base to be the higher end clients who can #1 afford to put the time and money into the project, and #2 know that it won't happen in only 2 hours." 

Yes yes YES! Hear Jen (that is me!) talk about the basics of why to package your organizing services as all-inclusive, irresistible deals for your clients rather than nickel-and-diming them by your hourly rate. It's easier for you to manage, easier for them, and the BEST way to build your business for long-term success.
