Many home staging courses are rarely updated since they were written more than ten years ago. Or they were created by people who never had a home staging business.
As a result, the traditional home staging courses:
Focus on the basic, soft business stuff that barely scratches the surface.
Only show you limited, cookie-cutter business models.
Don't teach you the importance of profit margins, so you chase revenue goals blindly like a hamster on the wheel. You feel exhausted and still barely made any money.
Give you superficial strategies that don't prepare you enough for real-life problems.
Teach you outdated marketing techniques that don’t serve your business well.
Use the same cookie-cutter website templates for all of their students, so your potential clients cannot differentiate you from another graduate because both of your businesses look very similar.
Worse, many of these template websites from training schools are poorly SEOed. Many are not mobile-friendly, which Google no longer indexes.
Worst of all, you just spent $THOUSANDS and still don't know how to get clients consistently.
You have zero strategies and zero ideas.
How do I know this? Because new graduates from these programs email me all the time. They ask:
What do I do when clients cancel on me last minute? I already spent all this money on new inventory for the job.
What do I say when clients say I am too expensive?
One of my movers accidentally broke the door frame when moving the couch in, what should I do?
How do I charge clients?
Do I need insurance? Why?
How do I get inventory when I have no money?
What should be in my home staging contract?
