About The Author
Zoe Zhao started her home staging business on her own. She did everything herself at the very beginning; marketing, consulting, on-site staging, purchasing inventory, storage, moving and bookkeeping ... everything small business owners have to deal with.
But now, she only does marketing and delegates all of the other work. She makes more and works less.
She has 3-4 designers on her team and each of them get about 1 project every week in the busy season.
Her team has staged over 200 homes in 2 short years. One of them said that "You are the smartest designer I have ever seen."
She has written articles for major newspapers for years, and a TV program about her service is about to launch in Toronto .
Her designers always wonder how she does her marketing; that has been her biggest secret!
Since there are so many homes in the market that need help from stagers, she thinks it won't hurt if she reveals her marketing secrets to designers in other cities.
And, she wants more people to get the great help from stagers, sell their home quickly and move on with their lives.
That is why she wrote this e-book. It's not a book about how to design, but how to be a most successful Home Stager. With this guide you will receive all of the information you need to start your own business and make it succeed!
P.S. Please don't order this book if you are looking for a book about design. You won't find that here. This books is all about making money in the home staging business. Period!
