Hello All!

As part of the Houston Decorative Center Spring Market, last Thursday the Laura U team was invited to participate on Social Media Houzz panel located in the Robert Allen showroom. David Mayer, Houzz Director of Marketing, served as the moderator, asking questions to the panel of local Interior Designers. Laura was joined by our good friend Marie Flanigan, from Marie Flanigan Interiors, and Lori Toups, owner of Sweetlake Interior Design.

After enjoying a fantastic breakfast, we sat down to attend the live panel. The discussion was focused on providing helpful tips for using Houzz, and other social media platforms, to promote your Interior Design business. Informative guidelines were given to the audience on how to create a successful Houzz profile. Questions about how to improve your existing profile were also answered. One of the most interesting facts we learned was what the most popular interiors on Houzz are Storage Units! Who would have guessed closets!

We also discussed the importance of photographing and properly categorizing your photographs so that they search better. It was a lot of fun to learn how many designers are using Houzz in different ways to increase their exposure.

It is one of our most powerful partners in delivering our message and serves and an excellent way to connect with people interested in interior design from all over the world.
