Home Staging and Interior
Train with the most widely read and respected expert in the industry who
leaves no stone unturned in this comprehensive, easy to follow course!
Hello, I'm Barbara Jennings and it's my pleasure to be your guide
I'm here to help you understand the real opportunity you have to get instant
training that is thorough, easy to follow, easy to understand and easy to
execute. It will give you the confidence you seek, answer your
questions, challenge your thinking, excite you, motivate you, encourage you and
sustain you in your quest for a profitable and enjoyable business in home
staging and interior redesign - two fast growing industries today.
Before I tell you about this course, let me point out just what has gone into creating it for you so that you'll capture a glimpse of why it is so superior to all other
courses, seminars, classes and online programs out there.
7 TRUTHS ABOUT TRAINING IN THIS BUSINESS|
1) To date it has been developed, improved, revamped, updated no less than 16 times.
When I first started putting this course together, I noticed that most trainers taught strictly by conducting expensive seminars. They hyped and promoted the absolute need for "hands on" training, claiming you couldn't possibly learn any other way. Of course
this was far from the truth as they have now discovered. I became the first
trainer to offer home study courses in staging and redesign over a decade ago.
2) I also noticed that most people prefer to study at home with a great set of manuals that thoroughly explain the overview of the business, but also get down to the real specifics. So to date I've written
and published 13 manuals and eBooks that leave no stone unturned. I'm not talking about short pamphlets or booklets
either - I'm talking about legitimate, fully developed manuals - each in excess of 150-250 pages long
giving you over 1900+ pages of high powered instruction. I know you aren't interested in
just theory - you want practicality. So I've made them extremely useful, bringing
you multiple check lists and forms, pictures and explanations - all sorts of beneficial food for thought and very
explicit instructions of what to do, what to avoid and why. Don't be fooled by
online "schools" who deliver everything to you online at your additional expense
while making you think you're getting hard copy training. That method benefits
them, not you.
3) It didn't take a genius to know you don't want to be stuck exclusively and totally at a computer
for your training. I'm confident you want flexibility in the training process and you also enjoy a measure of variety in the style of how
you learn. So my course is comprised of a combination of 3 electronic books
(for clarity and speed of starting and they are loaded with over 1000 pictures
and illustrations) AND 9 in-depth manuals (so you literally have
your own reference library in your home to keep forever and refer to as often as
you wish). I also developed an
in-depth private "members only" website for you to provide you with even more
quality and exclusive training, articles, statistics, trade discounts, videos, downloadable forms and more.
4) I knew you wanted practical tools of the trade to help you actually do the work for
your clients. So I pulled together
the most practical tools that I use every time I do a project and I included them in the course so
you don't have to buy them separately and pay extra for them. And, just as important, I created top notch promotional aids for
you as well so you have things
you can use immediately to promote your business which will lead to your first clients and first profits.
5) I also recognized how important an official designation or certification
would be to you, so I implemented a phenomenal process that will make you proud
and give you the confidence you seek and deserve to be competitive and well
respected in the industry. Your designations will be two-fold and the fees are
already included in the course, not like elsewhere.
6) Since having a web presence is so important, I've created an inexpensive
way to fast track your new business on the web, giving you your own website
(hosted for one year) and
two directory listings on our highly visible website. These, of course, are also
included in your course.
7) Lastly I knew you wouldn't want to be alone in the process and it was
important to you to know I'd be there long term to advise you, encourage you,
help you, answer your questions, keep you up to date and keep finding ways and
products to help you long term. It's why I give
lifetime access to everything at no additional charge - something no one else out there will do for you.
And further, you'll be receiving monthly support with insightful
newsletters and free personalized email support plus you can join me on FaceBook
for personal friendship and tips.
In summation, it is my goal to give you the absolute maximum yield out of the whole experience that you can possibly get - both monetarily and creatively - both personally and professionally.

You'll also get trained in the basic business concepts for the interior redesign
or redecorating business - related to staging, but different.
Interior redesign differs from home staging. The goals are completely different - almost opposite, in fact. When you're
working with a redesign client, the owner will continue to live in and enjoy the home indefinitely. So you'll be helping them establish their personality through
their decorating. In home staging you'll be eliminating personality from the dwelling so that it will appear to the greatest number of buyers. That is a big difference.
You live in a home one way; you sell it another way.

My newest book, Getting Paid covers a very neglected topic that is essential to home staging in particular. Many books cover the subject of
how to get business and how to do projects in all kinds of industries. But no one really writes about how to make sure you actually get paid for your work. In this guide I'll teach you powerful strategies and tactics you can take that will make is really
impossible for someone to skip out on paying you for your work. It's essential to staging because quite often you're involved in doing the project over many days and it involves so much more than just arranging furniture. So you want to protect yourself as
best you can, especially when economic pressures are everywhere.

Home Staging in Tough Times is an Exclusive Component You Can't Get Anywhere
Else and Good to Know During Down Cycles of an Economy
Tough Times Call for
FROM THE BACK COVER - Whenever consultants face challenging times, either economically or personally, the need for deeper, fresh, compelling business tactics and strategies becomes more necessary, even vital for survival for some entrepreneurs.
Home Staging in Tough Times brings together some of the most cutting edge marketing strategies in the home staging industry ever put in print, teaching readers how to think and operate “outside the box” and meet the challenges of the times with a deep passion, a high ethical standard and well-deserved hope.
Readers will be introduced to a host of practical tips, ideas and concepts never before published by Barbara Jennings, national best selling author in the industry. Jennings doesn’t just give theory, but she makes the more difficult applications for readers, filling her pages with a multitude of examples, forms, sample letters, sample promotional articles, encouragement, creativity and so much more.
Her easy going conversational style is personable and makes for a pleasant read.
Learn how you can ratchet up your profits from your home staging business, generate more clients in new and unusual ways that work especially well in down markets and keep your business prospering no matter what circumstances
currently surrounding you.
Let me tell you briefly about what type of information you can expect to receive:
- Chapter One deals with changing your mindset from what has worked in the past to what needs to work for you in the present and future. You might think this goes without saying - but it actually needs saying and explanation too. Unless you change
your mindset from the standard one to a more creative, "outside the box" kind of mindset, you won't get it and your business might not survive.
- Chapter Two focuses on some more cutting edge tactics for promoting and marketing your business. I'm going to come at it from a different angle than what I teach in my basic training. You're going to discover some more in-depth strategies that
you may not have thought of before and see how you can apply them in a down market - a market in which they thrive even better than an up market.
- Chapter Three will discuss how you can orchestra projects and deals in a cashless manner so that it doesn't matter if you have any cash or not and it doesn't even matter if your client doesn't have any cash. You'll learn all about this type of
business dealing and I'll give you the theory, but then I'll also adapt it for you within our industry. This should challenge you enough to come with some additional ideas and nuances of your own.
- Chapter Four delves deeper into the cashless and creative thought process, tactics, strategies and mindset that can propel your business to new heights in all sorts of ways - way beyond the norm. You'll discover that you're not even limited to your
own business but that you can expand and repeat these same ideas in a multitude of ways. Your profits could literally explode.
- Chapter Five - This is the practical chapter because it's filled with form after form after form that will help you pull all this together into the kind of cohesive unit that will serve as the base for all your ideas, tactics and strategies. You know,
I've taken a lot of seminars in my day and read a lot of books. Many have been very, very good - but they would have been soooooo much better if the authors had included practical forms and steps to serve as a thought-provoking guide and organizational tool.
I've done all that for you. Not to worry.
- Chapter Sixx is a frank discussion of how to hire some of the most critical vendors you'll probably need for your home staging services. It is included because these businesses are not only sources for cashless deals but because they are excellent
sources for you to leverage your business through and with. But if you don't have them lined up and allied to you, you won't be able to take advantage of them to build your business - and help them build their business at the same time.
- Chapter Seven gives your my closing thoughts and feelings and is a brief motivational piece. You know, when times are tough, we all need to band together to help each other. We need to break down the negative feelings of competition and see that
competition and changing times can act as a blessing in disguise. It is a message of hope and a challenge to renewed motivation.
- Chapter Eight refocuses you on some critical resources I've made available to help you in your business. I'm devoted to my readers and students and I'm not interested in steering you into training or products that you don't need. On the other hand,
I would be remiss as your mentor and teacher if I did not at least mention them so you can avail yourself of them if you choose.
This manual is 210 power-packed pages, 8.5x11 full sized format.
Do's and Don'ts in Home Staging and Redesign - 101 Case
Studies - Your Chance to Learn From the Successes and
Failures of Others - No One Else Offers This Type of
You'll be thrilled at the inclusion of this one-of-a-kind book. You won't find this anywhere else because it's just another one of our exclusive manuals. It's filled with
101 case studies of actual, real, bona-fide rooms that have either been staged or redesigned by a wide variety of students all across the nation, Canada and elsewhere. You'll see
the way the room looked prior to professional help and how it looked afterwards. I'll point out the problems inherent in the room, what was done to improve the room, and teach
you what could have been done or should have been done to take the room to full completion. You'll learn from the mistakes and successes of others in the industry
in this 200+ training guide. What could be
better than that? Is there any doubt that we offer the most
complete training anywhere?
Advanced Redesign is also part of your advanced training. Learn How to Build
Even More Profit With Value Added Products and Services
Advanced Redesign is yet another manual that will teach you the importance of
developing multiple streams of revenue by adding what we call "back end" products and services. There are many ways to approach clients and they have many different
kinds of needs and wants. The more services you offer, the greater your profits, so we'll load you up with many ideas - too many, actually, to do all of them. But
pick and choose what works for you.

You'll also get a copy of my soft cover book
(148 pages) called Wall Groupings: The Art of Arranging Art and
Photos. This breezy manual
will teach you everything you need to know about how design
beautiful wall groupings for clients, including all of the
important design concepts, installation tips, lots of
illustrations and photos, do's and don't, a huge selection of
photos of actual wall groupings and much more.
Wall Groupings! picks up where Where There's a Wall - There's a Way left off. While there are many more illustrations in the older version (making it ideal to own both copies), you'll find that either choice is an excellent one to learn how to arrange wall groupings in your home. When the first published book sells out, it will not be reprinted, so if you want both copies, be sure to order them both today. We are on our last box of the original book.
Includes the following: 1) Learning the Rules; 2) Illustrations of Groupings; 3) A Potpourri of Actual Wall Groupings; 4) Drawing Your Own Ideas; 5) Templates to Copy; 6) The Good, the Bad and the Ugly; 7) Additional Resources.

GOODIES TO HELP YOU BUILD YOUR BUSINESS SUCCESSFULLY AND POWERFULLY|
1) Your Own Personal 5-7 Page
Renewable Semi-Custom Brochure WebsiteSee Some Examples)
WE WILL HOST IT FOR ONE YEAR
IN A DOMAIN NAME OF YOUR CHOOSING AND YOU CAN RENEW IT OR NOT AS YOU CHOOSE
for a nominal fee.
That's right - you submit the details and we'll put up a SEMI-CUSTOM BROCHURE WEBSITE in the domain name of your choice (so long as it is available) so you can have
an instant professionally designed internet extension and direct realtors and clients
to your online presence. If you already have an official website (not hosted by a competing trainer), just let us know and we'll link to your official site from the The Academy of Staging and Redesign - Directory,
the fastest growing directory of its kind. Some people get calls instantly,
even before their training materials arrive. And the visitors to this
directory are increasing every day. This way we will instantly
help you brand your business and get out your message by the time you finish training.
Don't buy any course which demands you sign a 3-year contract for your website
every year for 3 years whether you keep the website or not (payable annually).
That's $540 in addition to your course fee. And if you don't set it up within 30 days of
starting the course, you lose the website feature altogether with no refunds. You might even be held liable for the 3-year $540 fee regardless. Beware! Beware! Beware!
We have no contracts, no minimums, no time limits and renewal of our student websites
is only $99 per year from when it is initially registered.
2) Lifetime Inclusion in our
Diamond Membership Training Site which includes even more online training, how-to videos, forms,
designer discounts and additional resources to help you brand, build, promote, advertise and
manage your growing business ongoing. We stay on top of what's happening in the industry and continuously develop products and services that will help you enhance
your business to make the most profits you can. It's not about starting a business; it's about growing it and sustaining it for as long as you want to be in business.
A recent encounter with a woman who described herself as an "old jaded designer", who had switched from full service interior design to one day decorating, is
evidence that even those who may have been successful in the past need to keep up with the paradigm shifts in business and how it is done today or be left behind. We
will help you sustain your business for the long term. Best of all for you, there are
NO ANNUAL FEES to keep your membership, unlike all other organizations.
3a) Set of 4 Furniture Sliders for Carpeting - Don't worry about doing projects by yourself. With these handy, heavy-duty sliders, you'll be able to move
just about any piece of furniture over carpet that you need to move. I've got a helper these days, but I've done plenty of projects all by myself too. You'll love
these little guys. You can purchase more a la carte if you want - I always take more than one set because I often want to move 2 or 3 pieces of furniture at the
same time and this way I don't have to constantly move the sliders from piece to piece.
3b) Set of 4 Furniture Sliders for Hard Floors - And with all the ceramic and wood floors out there, you'll want to be sure and have sliders for moving
furniture or appliances over hard floor surfaces. These heavy duty workers are all the help you'll need. With more and more homes using wood flooring, tile, marble
and slate floors, you don't want to be without these handy little "guys". They make the hole process so easy. I would never go out the door without them.
GUARANTEED DOUBLE CERTIFICATION (CSS/CRS)
- To help you with credentials that have meaning and power, we've created our own certification
program. In the Diamond Ruby Course you'll be qualified to
earn certification in both businesses and become a Certified Staging Specialist (CSS) and Certified Redesign Specialist (CRS).
We're not like the high priced seminars
who will give you a designation of some kind just for attending a seminar. That's pretty meaningless
to most prospects you'll talk to later when you're trying to compete in the
marketplace. We'll train you so you'll be able to
pass our no-time-limit, open book exam and submit
your beginning portfolio of work you've done early on to make sure you're
operating at a professional level to ensure your success out in the field.
Portfolio examples do not have to be paid projects - we just want to see you at
work out in homes.
It does you no good whatsoever to lack the ability to articulate design
principles you need to know and it does you no good whatsoever to do inferior
work because of lack of proper preparation and oversight. When you complete your
certification requirements, you'll have attained a much higher level of sophistication and expertise and be entitled
to promote yourself as a CSS/CRS professional. You'll have immense pride in your achievement
and you won't be second to anyone for prestige and respect. You'll also get preferred listings in our main directory to
separate you from the rest as a specialist with distinction.
To achieve certification and get our prized designations, you must take an
open book, no time limit exam and submit before and after pictures of your early
work, along with 3 testimonials. You are allowed to download and print off the
exam immediately so you know what to look for as you study. There are no
assignments other than that. If our panel feels that you have missed critical
information on the exam or have not captured some of the important design issues
in your work, you will be advised of what our concerns are and given a chance to
revisit those issues and correct them. This process helps give you the
validation most students desire as well as catching any missed training or
misinterpretations that might exist so that when you do complete the process you
can be certain you are functioning at a professional level that will help you
maintain your business long term and get referrals for providing an excellent
This is why our designations are so highly respected and valuable and works
in your favor when you are being compared to other programs that require little
accountability or none at all.
And did you notice we said "guaranteed" certification? As a Diamond Ruby trainee, we'll help you through the process if you're struggling. We can therefore guarantee you'll
pass. Not everyone does when they apply for it "a la carte". But by going "Diamond", we'll help you attain this achievement
as we want you to succeed, but we want your success to have marketable
strength. Anything less may be unprofessional and we want all our designees
to enjoy superior talents in the industry. We're on YOUR side, unlike many
Consultation Guide to Give Out
This 105-page guide (which you can additionally purchase at a discount in sets of 5 or 10
at a time) will help you present your services to "do it yourself" clients as part of your consultation or as an extra value-added product. They
will marvel at how all-inclusive and helpful it is. So whether you just do consultations or a full staging service, you
should never leave empty handed.
Purchase more of these guides in bulk at a discount, and just pass the cost on to your clients. Then you make money and they
cost you nothing.

50 ASSORTED STAGING CARDS
50 ASSORTED REDESIGN CARDS

your contact information. They will tide you over until you can make your own
custom products. You'll be given access to a nationwide low cost printer in the
private Diamond website where you can order your own custom business cards,
postcards, letterhead and more. We use them and recommend them highly.
7) Two Promotional Folders
It's always good to have the right materials on hand to give your detail pages a professional look. To start you off right, we're including
printed folders that you can use to manage your supplemental pages, such as before and after pictures, introductory letter, list of testimonials, list of references, pricing sheets, brochures and so forth
(pen not included - design varies).
Two Presentation Folders
8) Two Lifetime Preferred Business Listings
Here is an actual directory page in The Academy of Staging and Redesign - Directory.
We have over 2,000,000 monthly hits to our websites. We host the fastest growing directories on the internet - and we spend
untold hours EVERY month promoting our website. We list your business under your state and each city or town is listed alphabetically so consumers can easily find you in their
local area quite easily. Our directory is the fastest growing directory for Home Staging and Interior Redesign
of any directory on the web. People do their research on the internet these
days, so it is imperative that you list your business online. We'll give you
two listings in two separately advertised directories to maximize your exposure.
You won't find anyone anywhere giving you a lifetime listing. They ALL have
annual renewal fees. As a Diamond trainee, you'll never have to pay another
listing fee unless you want to. We hear almost daily from trainees who
have been contacted from the directory. Many haven't even received their
training materials yet and the directory is bringing them business. I can't
promise that will happen for you, but be prepared - it might.
TESTIMONIAL - "I want to extend a huge THANK YOU from half way across the country for recommending my name and company to a Real Estate Investor
here in St. Paul. I spoke with her today and we are meeting tomorrow to talk about a future relationship for the need she has for a stager. The first project
is a 5 bedroom house built in 1884, which is the style I like most. What an amazing network you have set up for stagers across the country, what a connection.
Thanks for your recommendation, I won’t let you down! God bless, Kristin Register"

TESTIMONIAL - "Dear Barbara,
Thank you so very much for the fabulous video, I was so excited when I seen it. And yes I have emailed everyone I know, to view it. The article you wrote on me was also great, you really have a way of making people feel really good about them selves. I feel like I have won the lottery, by completing this course, and the results are endless.I really do hope I can get some business off of this. All I want to do is watch it over and over, and by the way I wish I could stick my hand in some of the pictures to re-arrange some of the pictures.
. . . Again Thank You So Very Much

18) The Home Staging Powerpoint Presentation Slides with Script
You're likely going to want to make a few group presentations to real estate
agents. Many offices have several agents and it will save you much time and effort to make your presentation to them all at once. Or you might get an appointment
to speak at their association meetings. So having a cool powerpoint show will be very helpful to you. The show does not work on a Mac computer, however, so you must
have a PC computer to show it or have PC adaptability from the Mac. One gal who showed the presentation to a group of agents had them clamoring for more information
as soon as she finished and were saying, "When can you start?"
19) The Interior Redesign Powerpoint Presentation Slides with Script
This powerpoint presentation is geared for speaking to a group of homeowners
interested in decorating. It shows multiple before and after pictures of the impact that great furniture arrangement techniques can have on a room and points out

my list of Diamond Trainees and give my referral to them to handle. I can't promise I'll have referrals for you, but I do give out many referrals every month and the
Diamond Redesign/Staging trainees are the benefactors of those.
As a Diamond Ruby Trainee, you will receive referrals from me if (or when) someone contacts me looking for a re-designer/stager in your area. I do not give out
referrals to any trainees unless they have gone through the Diamond level courses. Naturally, if you follow through and submit your full contact
information for the Redesign Directory (which you will receive at no additional charge for life), visitors to the Directory will be able to contact you
directly. But regardless, I only give out referrals myself to Gold or Diamond Trainees. This is another one of the bonuses you will receive.
So you get all this additional training in party decorating, entertaining and decorating table scapes, all as an additional bonus for choosing the

For your personal library, we give you 3 eBooks and
9 manuals (equivalent
to 1940+ pages - no one in the industry does as much), all the promotional and management tools you're likely to need, business listings, certification,
tools of the trade, sales aids and website, so there is no stone unturned on any aspect of either business.
(For those in Canada/Hawaii/Alaska your
charges are slightly higher, including airmail shipping.)
You could literally pay for the entire course with just two half-day or one full-day client!
you're getting over $399 in free bonuses too because each product that makes up
this package also comes with it's own free bonuses, added to the ones listed
That's a tremendous bargain (you don't even know yet) considering that you won't find this
type of training any where else for any price and you could easily pay several thousand dollars for seminars and classes that don't cover nearly the ground

some novice who couldn't as a consultant and decided to try
training instead or has only been online a few months trying to copy our
If you've been considering spending $2000-3500 for a seminar, class or
teleconference, you might get decent training (though I've heard many
horror stories). How many clients will it reasonably take to recoup your
training cost, equipping you in only one business, not two? It will take
a few, but it is unrealistic to think you can become professional this
quickly without spending some serious money on your business training
and tools and web presence.
delay as this price may go up at any time. You're not going to find an
advanced strategy training on redesign AND staging out there any where, I guarantee it.
This is an incredible deal, even at two or three times the price.
