A behind-the-scenes peek shows your viewers that you’re candid, professional, and confident about your work. So, don’t hesitate to do a little vlogging when going to check on a design project in progress or shopping for furniture, materials, and decor. This way, your potential new clients will feel like they already know you and your workflow a little. And so, they’ll be more likely to contact you for your services.
#2. Showcase Your Complete Interior Design Projects
Nothing feels more satisfying than seeing your stylish interior projects brought to life. So why not share this feeling with your viewers? Ask your clients for permission to film a tour of a place you’ve designed for them, so you can show others what you’re capable of. Such interior design marketing videos are always exciting and inspirational to watch. Especially for people who are planning a renovation or construction of their own. And that’s your exact target audience, so go for it!
#3. Post CG Videos for Your Work In Progress
Sometimes, you might want to share a beautiful interior design concept on your website or social media way before it’s realized. In a case like that, you can post a 3D walkthrough from the project presentation with your client’s permission. This way, your viewers will see that you’re truly thorough about your design pitches and that you comfortably use modern CGI technology. As a result, your potential customers will know they can expect great visual communication and a high level of professionalism from you.

Another great way to showcase your expertise with interior design marketing videos is to give advice on topics that are interesting to your audience. How to fit a walk-in wardrobe in a small condo? What’s the best way to organize a bathroom? How to plan power access for built-in appliances? Answer questions like that in your videos and the pool of potential customers will always keep growing.
#5. Make Compilations of the Latest Interior Design Trends
Many people go online to find out what the latest tendencies in interior design are. The reasons for that are numerous. They can be planning a full renovation or a simple one-room makeover.
