THE RIGHT TOOLS

The key to being a pro woodworker is, of course, having the right tools for the job. The last thing you want to tell a customer is that you can’t do a job right away because you need to order a specific tool, for instance. The main difference between a woodworker in a shop and a woodworker in a factory is that you can use your hands for a more personal touch when completing your projects in a shop.

 

USE WOODWORKING SOFTWARE


Woodworking software like SketchList3D can make your life a whole lot easier. By generating 3D models in no time, you can show off your client’s skills and make sure they’re absolutely in love with your design. If not, you can alter it with a few easy clicks. Clients want to see that your woodworking business is state-of-the-art rather than stuck with outdated methods. Additionally, such software can give you precise estimates, shop drawings, material layouts, the ability to duplicate recurring design aspects, and more. Never before has it been so simple to design kitchens, furniture, cabinets, and other projects. Best of all, you’ll be able to accurately assess the cost of a job and easily provide a reasonable quote to any prospective clients. That way, you can beat out the clients who either estimate too high from the start or who disappoint clients by estimating too low.

 

SOCIAL MEDIA VISUALS

The world of social media is highly visual. More and more people want to see intriguing images accompanying a post. What’s so great is that woodworking provides great visuals and aesthetics in addition to function. And that’s necessary for your woodworking business.  What better way of attracting customers than sharing stylish photos of the work you’ve done? Doesn’t matter whether for yourself or happy customers. When you’re active on these social media sites and are regularly posting engaging content, you can expect loyal customers to share your posts and get excited about your business. As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. With woodworking, a picture of beautiful kitchen cabinets on Instagram can be worth a thousand bucks or more. Consider it a woodworking “sales hack.”

With these tips to boost sales, you can start working toward a new level of success for your woodworking business. SketchList3D can provide you with all the woodworking software you’ll ever need. Using our expert tools, you can save time, money and impress your clients with your beautiful 3D models. It’s even great for recreational use.
