If you’re considering a career in home staging, you may be tempted to go for the cheapest training option available. Perhaps it’s a local college, or a cheap online work on your own training. While the many options you consider may have some merits, we believe investing in a program with proven success, comprehensive, in-depth training with a reputable provider, with tailored education for success …..is the smartest move you can make.
Here are a few reasons to consider the Hallmark of professional staging education provided by CSP International Staging Business Training Academy.
You have a dream to be a success and research has you more puzzled and bemused than when you first started. When everything seems to blur, and you can’t think clearly which training will give you what you need (when really you don’t know what you need to know) then it is time to trust your business incubation to an educator who specializing in developing successful stagers. One where you are not only taught but also nurtured, encouraged, coached and mentored after class and through the success of your business.
Business Training and Marketing Support:
CSP International offers comprehensive business training for a solid foundation. This includes tutelage on pricing, contracts, sales and marketing. Cheaper training programs may not provide this level of business training and support, leaving you unprepared. All our courses, the foundation business and the professional development niche training are designed with the specific needs of a home stager in mind, generated through a depth of experience in the field- meaning actually doing the job. By contrast, many local colleges cannot provide that depth of learning, support, or specialization because they have never had a successful staging business. A definite strength of the CSP certification program is teaching you how to secure sales and marketing to agents, builders & flippers; what to say, how to overcome objections, how to and when to follow up, who pays, when do you get paid and so much more gleaned from over forty years business and industry experience.
Do you know why working at your own pace is over-rated? According to research and industry papers only 5-15% of people complete a program. Udemy and Teachable, reveal less than 25% of people who purchase a class actually watch the first video!
CSP International staging training offers you the flexibility and savings derived from not having to travel, the flexibility of course times to suit your schedule which require a commitment to attend and keep current with course work. This can be especially beneficial if you’re juggling other commitments, like a full-time job or family responsibilities. What happens if you have a special event or emergency? Unlike a college we have you covered!
No lost learning opportunity.
Practical Training and Support:
One of the biggest advantages of CSP International’s home staging program is the individual feedback on your assignments. The courses include practical assignments and case studies that allow you to apply your knowledge in real-world scenarios. You’ll also have access to a network of mentors and peers who can provide feedback and support as you build your skills. The President of the company actually reviews all practical work both before certification & after you start work.
Reputation and Industry Recognition:
CSP International is a globally recognized leader in home staging education. Their courses are accredited by RESA (Real Estate Staging Association), and their graduates are eligible to apply for membership in RESA and other industry organizations. The use of the CSP logo on your work is a symbol of your integrity, talent, skills, and knowledge. This provides a valuable boost to your credibility and help you stand out in a crowded field of stagers.
Ongoing Support and Resources:
At CSP International, the training doesn’t stop when the course is over. You’ll have access to ongoing support and resources to help you succeed in your home staging career. This includes access to a network of mentors and peers, as well as exclusive resources like marketing materials, business forms, and design tools. Cheaper training programs may provide little to no support or resources after the course, or have hidden extra charges, leaving you on your own to navigate the shortfalls. We have trained many who wished they had decided on CSP first- one lady had taken two other cheaper courses before deciding to take the CSP training. We are in the business of training successful staging professionals vs selling training courses.
So, while cheap home staging training programs may seem like a tempting option, we believe investing in a proven, successful, and comprehensive training program like CSP International Staging Business Training Academy is the smartest move you can make. With their depth of information, ongoing support, resources, reputation, business training and marketing support, you’ll be well-prepared to succeed in this exciting and dynamic industry.
Cheap training isn’t good and GREAT training is an investment with high ROI.
