San Francisco Decorator Showcase

Challenge

The San Francisco Decorator Showcase is a significant commitment of time, money, and talent. So, how will you get the most return on your investment? We understand the thrill of seeing your Showcase room in print. And as a full-service marketing firm and design studio, we know that it takes more than a press feature to uplevel your firm. In a changing communications landscape, PR is the minimum amount of marketing needed to boost your business.

SOLUTION

Our team of over 20 professionals will create a proactive marketing strategy specific to your firm’s year-long goals. Using a holistic approach, we provide support from start to finish. Coupar can work with you from your initial Showcase board presentation through to room completion and final photography. We are an exclusive marketing firm that can work in conjunction with professionals specializing in PR to develop high-level strategy.

Coupar pioneered the modern Press Kit and Pop-Up Website for Showcase, which has become a standard tool used each year. Our proven record of connecting designers with the right channel partners results in a healthy pipeline. For 2019, we go one step further. Now we take your marketing strategy beyond PR ensuring that you get the most out of your Decorator Showcase investment.

DESIGNER TESTIMONIALS

Street Soiree

“In 2015, I worked with Coupar Consulting to promote the dining room I designed in collaboration with acclaimed street artist Ian Ross. The Coupar team facilitated superior photography and landed me a spectacular blog feature with one of the most noted design bloggers in the country. The press coverage I received because of Coupar’s efforts were spectacular. I was a very happy customer. Brava Coupar Consulting!”
