Those businesses dealing with design will be interested in taking a look at Houzz.com. A free interactive website that is easy to navigate with beautiful photos that inspire home projects. Houzz users can also purchase new design items or contract for design services from the professional Houzz users.
The big thing with Houzz is to search photos to save to your ideabook, find a professional designer, or shop for design elements. Signing up with Houzz is free and has two types of users: professional and non-professional. Your profile includes user photo with information, your ideabooks, uploaded photos, and purchases.
Houzz allows users to network and pin photos of interior and exterior design elements much like Pinterest. When searching photos you can search type of room, style, location, budget, and size to get a very specific result. A Houzz user can search for design professionals and buy items from multiple categories: kitchen & dining, bath, bedroom, living, kids, outdoor, exterior, home improvement, and more. And with professional user pages, businesses can be followed, reviewed, and photos liked.
Add Houzz to your business’s social media
Houzz professional profiles have beautiful header photos to attract users, easy-to-access contact information at the top of the profile, and reviews listed along with any Houzz awards. When making a professional profile include pictures, projects, reviews, and items for sale. All profile items are labeled for search by different design elements, and businesses should be sure to label all their pictures with descriptions, keywords, and the appropriate category in order to be found in search results. To benefit the most from Houzz, a business should completely fill out their profile with phone number, address, website, and social media websites.
