Do any of you have a showroom or a place you can take clients on a walkthrough? I am assuming the majority of you have lighting in your own yards. I have turned my own yard and house into a "proving grounds". Which means not too many wires are buried due to moving things around and trying new stuff. If any of you have been to Jan's Dogpark, you know how beautiful the property is. I joked with her that her class is really going to cost me tens of thousands of dollars due to the fact that I would like to have a studio like hers with a view of the property with landscape lighting. My dream studio would not be limited to outdoor stuff either. I have dabbled in home theater as well and that is something else that I have played around with on the interior of the house. If any of you have been to Lutron's Experience Centers, you can understand how the enthusiasm for is infectious. They have a 98% close rate on sales when a client comes in. The idea of an Experience Center for lighting and electrical is therefore not limited to just interior electrical but also the outdoor lighting of gardens. I really need to win the lottery because unlike a lot of you I am not a landscaper and therefore the whole thing of learning plants is new to me too. I thought a great sales thing would be to invite a client to the "Proving Grounds" for a walkthrough with wine and cheese or something to really allow them to experience what the lighting can really do to enhance their lifestyle rather than just trying to describe it. If anyone has something like this in their own property it would be great to hear what you have.
