Organizing Your Design Projects for More Profits
I started my entire Return on Interiors system for one reason - to help interior designers run more efficient and effective businesses! It's my PASSION! Because I've learned over many (MANY🤣) years that having an organized business means that you're going to be more profitable. It's just a fact! Having more control makes you a BETTER designer, but it also helps you make more money. How? Read on!
Every Step You Take
It's so important to have repeatable systems that WORK. You want to understand every single step that you need to take to complete a task or a project. That helps you be more efficient in getting things done. It also helps you be a better delegator - when you have a system or process spelled out, it's easier to assign to someone else! I just had an experience where I saw an interior designer hand off her installation to someone else because she had it so organized and systemized that she had the CONFIDENCE to know it would all be done to her high standards. Now that is an effective designer and leader! Those processes also help you stay on task and on deadline, which we all know is a CRITICAL part of your design projects.
Wouldn't it be great if you knew what every single team member was working on at any given moment?? With a project management system, it's not only possible, it is a FACT. I like to use Asana (see more below), but there are other management systems that will help you assign tasks, communicate deadlines, and keep up with what is happening in every single one of your projects. Being THAT organized is truly a key to a well-run company. It also gives your team the information they need to do their jobs better, too!
No Dropped Balls
"Dropping the ball" sounds kind of lighthearted and almost fun, right?! But you and I both know that it is PAINFUL. Not only can mistakes be really embarrassing and unprofessional, but a lot of times they cost you a LOT of money. Those can include missing deadlines and due dates, not providing the right info to your vendors or subs, forgetting to finish a specific task for a client, and more. With a project management systems and some great processes in place, those "dropped balls" are FAR less frequent.
It's an old saying for a reason - Time IS Money. If you're wasting your time searching for emails or documents, you're wasting money. If you're spending time going over the same tasks with your team, you're spending money. Having everything you need in ONE place, like a hub, is the way to avoid using up all that time. It gives you more opportunities to find new clients, to provide better customer service, and to up level your services and offerings. And THOSE things definitely will make more money!!
AND - in case you haven't seen it - I have something VERY special to help you organize and gain more control over your design business and get things moving more smoothly and efficiently!
