Affiliate marketing can be a lucrative endeavor for interior designers, generating you passive income for your business! But more than just revenue, affiliate marketing can also improve your prestige and elevate your brand. Seeing your business allied with other well-regarded, trusted business can make your own business seem that much more credible. But how do you get started? But how do you get those reviews?

Whenever we spend our hard-earned money we want to be sure that we're making the right choice - especially if we're investing heavily into it. From TVs to cars, movies to books, we typically do our research before we buy - and our industry isn't any different. Reviews reassure your potential client that you're the designer for the job, and establishes your competency, integrity, and, what they can expect out of working with you. But how do you get those reviews?

Interior design businesses typically have two main revenue streams - product sales and professional services. Historically these two revenue steams are tied directly to your project pipeline. However, it’s not uncommon to have times of a year with a slower project pipeline. Having passive income revenue steams to fill the low times is essential to the long term health of your design business.

Building relationships with builders

One of the key contributors to the success of any business is relationships. The biggest advantage you have is your trusted network. As interior designers, we must cultivate and nurture relationships with our clients, employees, vendors, and contractors.  As an interior designer and owner of Philadelphia-based Liz Walton Home, I’ve discovered that while most of our clients are referrals, a large portion of our business is a result of our long-standing partnerships with local builders.
