PO-105 Starting Out as a Residential Organizer

Title: Starting Out as a Residential Organizer
Course #: PO-105W
Course Description: This course is for any organizer looking to improve upon the skills and knowledge needed to produce a successful residential organizing business. Concentrating only on residential requirements, by means of case studies and the latest research, students will learn the specific challenges of space, paper and time management in the home. The class also covers ways that organizers facilitate decision-making for their clients as well as recognizing backsliding and successful methods of addressing issues with a client. Students will walk away confident in their knowledge of questions to ask a prospect, using work plans, and developing a portfolio of resources for residential projects.
Learning Objectives: 
Upon completion of this course, attendees should be able to:

  • Explain the profession of organizing to others and an overview of the qualifications to be a professional organizer.
  • Differentiate organizing from cleaning/rearranging.
  • Have a variety of advertising, marketing, and public relation ideas to attract desired clients.
  • Use speaking as a marketing tool.
  • Coordinate strategic alliances to promote business.
  • Talk with a prospect to determine what they need and if they are the right professional organizer for them.
  • Easily visit with a client to determine the work plan for the client.
  • Prepare a resource portfolio (other people who can help).
  • Understand different types of residential organizing projects such as space, paper, and time.
  • List ways that organizers can facilitate decision-making for their residential clients.
