Building an Online Presence

Professional landscape designers meet their prospective clients in many ways – by referrals, presentations at trade shows etc., but almost without exception, they all maintain an online presence using a combination of Web sites and social media activities. Here is an example.

Tip: Creating content for your online presence takes a lot of time and we suggest that you start on this task quite early in your landscape design journey.

What are others doing?

One of the best ways to start is to look what landscape designers in your city are doing online – simply google ‘landscape designers in my city”. That will quickly reveal some examples. Here is an example of a Google Search from Seattle in Washington Sate USA.

Building web sites

You can employ the services of a professional web developer or use a tool such as WordPress to build the site, but one thing you will need is content so make sure that you photograph as many gardens as you can concentrating on those you find appealing.
