You will also have to become a student of specific marketing strategies for an interior decorators' and designers' supplies retail business.

A directory listing may be one of the best ways to increase the visibility of an interior decorators' and designers' supplies retail business. Yellow pages, industry listings, online databases, and other directory options are routinely used as vehicles for promoting interior decorators' and designers' supplies retail businesses in a region or territory. Although there are plenty of free directory opportunities out there, some directories charge a fee to include your business in their listing.
