Process Party: Part 5 – Trade Vendors

This week the Hot Young Designers are hosting a new Process Party, and you’re invited! They’re breaking down how to build revenue into your business model by working with trade vendors. This is the professional upgrade you need, because no one’s retiring off of design fees alone. Rebecca and Shaun share their tips to help you find vendors, set up accounts, and help clients see the value in the process.
