The Current Situation for Interior Designers

According to the United States Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor and Statistics there were 54,900 interior designers in the United States, 25% of which are self-employed. The average annual wage was $47,600 per year.  Our classes are designed to get greater recognition for your firm so that you can charge more for your services while spending a less on marketing and advertising your services. We believe all small business owners should be making more than the stated national average wage.

Marketing as Core Curriculum is Often Unavailable

US News and World Reports top ranked school granting a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Interior Design did not offer a course dedicated to marketing.  We believe marketing is fundamental to the success of every built environment firm. Interior Design Marketing School will provide interior designers the ability to take 1 hour online classes taught live with two instructors. Each class is designed to highlight a specific area of marketing such as "Creating a Marketing Plan",  "Using Houzz To Market Interior Design Services" or  "Lead Generation Using Website Landing Pages".
