Home stagers needn’t be intimidated by the perceived “high-tech” nature of downloadable home staging courses, explains expert home stager Debra Gould.
Downloadable home staging courses for home stagers
The cheapest way for aspiring home stagers to get the Staging Diva home staging courses is by buying the downloadable version of the Staging Diva Home Staging Business Training Program. Anyone intimidated by the “high-tech” factor of this type of program can rest assured that such training is not as technical as it sounds.
Staging Diva, Debra Gould, says, “The courses are downloadable but home stagers don’t actually do the program online.” Gould explains, “You simply download audio recordings and printable study notes, so you can sit at your desk with a cup of tea and pore over the material. You don’t need to do something complicated with your computer in order to participate, you’re really just reading and listening.”
If an aspiring home stager is able to download a file then there isn’t a technology barrier to worry about with the Staging Diva Training Program. “Download” simply means you click the link you receive as soon as you order, and when you click, the material will automatically be transferred (downloaded) onto your computer. You then open those files from your computer and the audiorecordings will play or you can read and print the course notes and checklists.
Anyone concerned about the lack of one-on-one attention along the way of listening to the material in a self-led home staging training program like this will appreciate the option to purchase one-on-one coaching with Debra Gould at a discounted price when they order the full Staging Diva program.
Gould explains, “You’re going to be given the option when ordering to also get an hour of staging business accelerator coaching with me for 50% off.” Gould adds, “You’ll have six months to use our time together and you can split the time up into 15-minute sessions, 30-minute sessions or one-hour sessions – whatever you like. You’ll be given access to my online calendar and you can book your appointments when it’s convenient for you. Then I phone you at the appointed time.”
During the coaching calls, stagers have an opportunity to discuss whatever challenges they’re facing during their home staging courses. Gould says most students don’t have questions about the course material itself so they use their time for help coming up with their business name, advice on combining staging with an existing business, or help with their website or other marketing materials.
Gould acknowledges that some people can’t get past the technological aspect of the less expensive version of the Staging Diva home staging courses which is why there is a home study version that’s mailed directly to an aspiring stager’s door – no computer required. It does cost more than the alternative option.
“However,” states Gould, “if you can figure out how to order a product online, you’re tech-savvy enough to handle the downloadable version!”
