How will you attract clients in 2012?

What is your firms practice of marking up furniture to sell to clients in 2012?

Since most clients can get access to most of the goods designers have access to, this method of billing has come into question.  What separates clients from designers is not so much the ability to find furnishings as it is the way you put everything together. 

Where will you put your Marketing and PR efforts in 2012?

Being the best kept secret in our business is not a great idea… You need to market and get your name out there when you’re the busiest.  If you wait until you ‘need’ the work, it’s too late.

Where are you learning about project management?  

What education and industry shows do you plan to attend in 2012?

What are your key challenges for the business year ahead?
