Design Camp Recap - Spilling Some of the Tips and Tricks I Learned

By Decorology @decorology_blog
I had the exceptional privilege of being a guest at Design Camp in Austin TX from Oct 24th - 26th.  Design Camp was created by celebrity interior designers Lori Dennis and Kelli Ellis.  Aside from two days of on-trend interior design education, the people - speakers and guests - were all awesome!!!  Lori and Kelli were so sweet and made the conference feel more like a party where people discuss great ideas to expand and grow your design business.
I felt the most useful and inspiring speakers were those that covered information of social media and using it to get your designs and creativity out there!  Leslie Carothers, CEO of The Kaleidoscope Partnership, shared with everyone the amazing "Olioboard," a site that allows you to create 2 and 3D rooms that you can share with others, shop from, and save.  Most design campers agreed this was one of their favorite presentations.

All The Best's Ronda Rice Carman spoke about the necessity of defining your brand, which includes having a website that reflects your philosophy and services.  ( I don't usually like to push my other business, web design, but I can definitely hook you guys up with a gorgeous website!)  She also recommends staying focused on what you want to accomplish - avoid having too many branches of your blog/business.  Find your niche and stick to it!

Susanna's tips include not being afraid to get out there and introduce yourself and your work through various social networking platforms (twitter, facebook, olioboard, pinterest, etc.), and to editors and bloggers.
