“Make the Most of Your Presentations”
Joan Inglis, ASPM will offer tips and ideas to make your presentations memorable and increase your business. Learn how to tailor your presentation to your audience, include valuable information, and generate leads and projects. Presentations not only expose you to potential clients, but also can open up opportunities to media coverage – which will lead to a wider audience of name and company recognition. Don’t put presentations on the bottom of your marketing list. Presentations are one of the most important avenues to a successful business.
“Conquering The Investor Market”
As we start and grow our ASP Staging businesses, inventory is a necessary and valuable component in our growth and value. To acquire it, store it and manage it is the challenge we all face. Without systems and detailed oversight, inventory can be a burden rather than a valuable asset and tool. With that in mind, we will explore together the acquisition of inventory, the warehouse in which to store it and the maintenance of the goods we acquire. We’ll start with home storage and small storage units and then look at the path to a larger warehouse and the outfitting and management of this facility. Finally I will talk about one of the web based inventory control systems, how to use it and how to keep track of the inventory as it goes out to our projects and returns to the warehouse to be re-stocked. I look forward to sharing together with You.
“Walk Down the (Senior) Brick Road”
The senior market – we all hear about it, however, how do you want to penetrate it? This is the marketplace that can take you to the next level! Some of you are staging in this marketplace already but how can you grow more and not stumble over the challenges. In this session I will walk you through a presentation that is sure to get you those staging projects and much more. Take the walk down the “Senior brick road”. My presentation will include: Wealth of Baby Boomers & Seniors, Habits, Elder-speak, My “Follow the Yellow Brick Road” Actual Presentation, and Why the Staging ALWAYS gets done!
“Creating “Builder-Standard” Staging Specification packets for Banks and Builders.”
I have had a lot of success within the REO market working with Banks and Builders and offering them specification packets for their flip and REO projects which include complete color selections and general direction for kitchens and baths.

“Marketing to the Personalities – Understanding How to Meet the Needs of Your Clients Based on their Temperament”
All of us are made up of combinations of traits that comprise our personalities and temperaments. It’s natural to approach life and relationships based on what we like or dislike but since we are in a PEOPLE Business – we need to become masters at identifying others’ needs based on the clues they give us. Understanding how you are made – and your strengths and weaknesses – will help you be better in business and relationships. Understanding how to identify the personalities of others – in a short time – will help you better serve your clients and meet their needs for how you share information so that it makes sense to THEM – and will make you more successful.
“Staging for Seniors and Their Families in Transition”
Serving seniors and their families can be overwhelming even in the best of circumstances. In addition to honoring our client’s possessions, our ASP training teaches us to demonstrate patience, compassion and empathy. In this session, explore how to put these virtues to practical use by identifying your client’s emotional/grieving transitional stage. Learn the recognizable characteristics for each stage of transition and practical tips for achieving the best possible Staging result. Leave with resources and empowered desire to impact your client’s life changes.
