In this episode:

  • [04:11] Libby’s experience with product design and licensing
  • [11:36] Using show house designs for photos and marketing
  • [16:25] Libby’s love for being on camera, YouTube, make-over television, and using these video as a way to grow her business
  • [23:30] Libby talks about her goals for the future, where she sees her business going, and what kind of work she looks forward to doing

KEY TAKEAWAYS:

  • Although it’s not always a way to get jobs, Libby has used show houses as a way to showcase all of her pieces and designs at once. It is also a way to get professional photography done for her marketing materials and social media posts.
  • Video is a key part of marketing for Libby and it doesn’t have to be professional- people want to see authentic raw footage and details. You can keep videos super simple by just walking through and explaining your design choices.
  • Taking on fewer jobs gives you the time to work on bigger projects to really showcase your work.
