I think what you are offering is a viable service, but have concern that is what Realtors should be providing to their client. Therefore; you may want to focus on the people who are selling their own home without the use of a realtor. Just a thought!
Hi Gail and Welcome!
Great service you offer there, I`ve seen television shows doing what you do and I`m glued to the tv when they come on...in a sense, it reminds me of marketing (presenting the house in such a way to get prospects salivating at the mouth in an effort to `buy`).
In addition to the idea of having people send you photos, have you entertained the idea of possibly selling the "information" showing them how to `stage` their own homes?
And perhaps as a `BONUS` for buying your information, they can send you photographs after they attempted to do it themselves for your expert opinion?
I see a great product/service here that could be sold nationwide (worldwide too)...
Instead of a bonus offer, this could also be upsold as a `premium` if you know what I mean.
Also, I looked at your site and there are some changes I`d recommend, but I`ll save that for another time, but one thing you can modify right now are the "FREE Staging Tips" you`re offering on the site.
Instead of giving that information away for free, have them sign-up to receive those free staging tips. When they sign-up (e-newsletter), you can set a series of autoresponders that will send them the tips at a pre-determined time automatically. After they receive each tip, at the end of the email, you can have a paragraph or two upselling your "ebook" and linking them to your site to purchase a copy.
Perhaps you can make arrangements with realtors where they give your `book` away for free to their `clients` to stage their house, and at the end, upsell your services there to have them send u photos via email (for a fee of course) for your expert critique.
Those are just some ideas off the top of my head. Hope these help.
