What have been your most successful methods for marketing your business?
Most definitely word of mouth, which is something Houzz is great for, as the reach of the chatter goes even further here but you have to be active on the platform.
Tell us about one of your favourite projects on your Houzz profile and why you love it.
It’s not actually on Houzz yet, so watch this space. I’m currently working on a large private golf course residence on Borneo Island in Malaysia. It’s three stories and 10 spaces, plus bathrooms. It’s been 2 years so far but we are working towards completion and installation in 2021.
Tell us about a recent project that came about thanks to Houzz Pro?
I have recently completed a project with a wonderful lady called Susan who saw me giving advice on the Houzz Discussions section. Susan was so nervous about calling in a designer when she decided to move out of the house she’d shared with her husband, who had sadly passed away, and into a new-build which she wanted to “make her own”.
We clicked immediately and her apprehensions soon dissolved. Since that first call, she has gone on to engage my colleague, Sam Proctor of Chiltern Garden Design, to add some personality to the garden in line with the interiors – a full inside-out design!
