Phase 1: Design Studio Planning (4-8 weeks)

Everything starts with your business goals. Using proven diagnostic tools and consultation calls, we’ll gain extensive insight into your needs, goals and opportunities. We’ll review the breadth and depth of your optional product offerings and make recommendations to increase profitability. We’ll also dig into your brand, current design studio operations and wider business objectives.

Once we have a robust picture of your unique situation, we’ll create a strategic design studio spaceplan that will maximize the revenue potential of your space, and set you apart from the competition.

We’ll identify the constraints and opportunities presented in the physical space available for your new design studio, and apply proven retail strategies and our indepth understanding of consumer purchase psychology to make sure the space allocation in your design studio doesn’t just “look good” on paper, but is designed with smart, strategic business intent.

Phase Two: Creation Oversight Services Retainer (several months)

We expertly guide you through the entire process of turning your state-of-the-art spaceplan into a breathtaking and profitable reality. This phase includes ongoing consultation from #1 design studio expert Jane Meagher, president of Success Strategies.

After creating 150+ unique design studios, there’s nothing Jane hasn’t seen. Her invaluable knowledge will ensure your studio has the best chance to deliver success, and will enable you to:

  • Coordinate various internal and external team members

  • Guide targeted and motivating merchandising to maximize opportunities
  • Create maximum interaction between customers and products, and understand the theory behind doing so

“When we began the journey in conceptualizing our Design Studio, Jane was right with us. Her insights, ability to guide, listen, and draw out of us what our needs were always felt and were so right on! Every time- I mean every time- I walk into the doors of our studio I am so thrilled with how fabulous it it: The Wow Factor, the great use of every inch of space, and yes, functionality at its best!!  Thank you Success Strategies for once again partnering with us in delivering truly an amazing and inspiring space!!!

“Looking back to where we were when we started and where we are now, I don’t think we could have pulled off a third of what you provided us. Your level of focus and detail was critical in getting my team to a place where we feel competent moving forward. We could have done a center, but not with the precision and focus to achieve all that’s possible. We all feel that you are part of the Team in DFW!  I am very pleased with what you and your staff provided and I look forward to our future collaborations.“

“I wanted to commend you on designing such an amazing space.  The reviews are raving.  It is stunning to walk through our front doors and get those gorgeous views (mouth open, jaws dropped by visitors through the building lobby).  The end result was well worth the excruciating detail it takes to get it right.  A job well done by you and your team. We hit the target with the DC about as perfect as we could have…thank you.”

“We followed Jane’s formula and I wouldn’t change a thing.  I say with 100% certainly I found tremendous value in Jane’s services and that I am 100% pleased with results!  We are selling more options, have more control over the process, and have turned our purchasing process into an experience that our buyers love.  She is the real deal!!   I would do it all again in a heartbeat!”

“Working with Jane Meagher at Success Strategies created a design space that was perfectly tailored for our size. Jane doesn’t just create a drawing for you, she truly gets to know who you are, what products you build, what options you offer and what are your specific needs in order to be successful. She creates a well thought out plan that maximizes the space allotted to help create a studio that will change the game for your homeowners! We are exceeding all expectations both internally and externally! Our Design Team can’t believe they have reduced their appointments to closing buyers in literally 2 appointments! No need for 3-4 appointments because the space is so easy for our buyers to comprehend!”

design studio?

Don’t wait – this program typically has a wait list.

“I’m thrilled in every way with how the studio turned out. There’s no one better than Jane when it comes to the science, the psychology, economics, and design of a Design Studio. Thanks to Jane and team we now have a Design Studio that is not only a beautiful and immersive experience for our clients, but also a streamlined, efficient profit generating machine that aligns beautifully with the company as a whole! Even though Jane helped us narrow our offerings significantly, our buyers perception is they have far more options than our old studio. This has been priceless from an efficiency standpoint for our designers, purchasers, and estimators. I still think though my favorite part of the studio is that our buyers are “Wowed” without being overwhelmed. The Studio is beautiful and the response from our buyers has been so positive. Jane and Team helped us find the perfect balance between form and function.”
