For interior designers, the competition for securing new interior design projects as well as having completed projects published in print and online is steep. With residential, commercial and hospitality building and renovation on the rise, active interior designers, design firms and design-oriented contractors vie for jobs among the proliferated competition. Landing new projects is almost always foundational upon having a vast portfolio of relatable design work and a trusted reputation that stems from publicity.
Rave reviews, being published, social media interaction, design awards, and design-event participation all add up to a comprehensive toolkit that becomes a designer’s most valuable marketing asset- one that leads to creating a trusted brand for a designer or design firm. At Eberly & Collard Public Relations, we help our interior design-based clients reap new business and sales by generating published articles and feature stories that showcase their services, capabilities and design expertise.
Our synergistic backgrounds in both design and design-oriented media relations make our team a natural fit for taking clients from static and reactive marketing to proactive integrated marketing and results-oriented public / media relations.
We recently secured a feature article and photo spread for our client, Knotting Hill Interiors, in the April 2014 national print issue of Romantic Homes. The magazine showcased the CEO and principal designer Kimberly Grigg’s own home, making this a much more personal experience for readers.
Our team attained and facilitated an editorial interview for Kimberly and assisted the editor with writing portions of the design case-study, which revealed great ideas from Kimberly for bringing charm and elegance with a touch of southern flair into the home of the featured homeowner. Of course, having an artistic client such as Kimberly, whose design skills and knowledge are parallel to none, makes our media relations campaigns for her a ton of fun as well.
