“Tammy is great to work with. She has come up with ideas we wouldn’t have thought of. She is also very conscious of your budget. The bathroom project she did for us was right on budget. I am using her again for other rooms in our house.” – Kristine M.
Not Your Average Interior Design Firm
We took a few minutes to talk with Tammy Kaplan, owner, Interior Designer and President of Images in Design, Inc., to learn a little more about the business and how they managed to build such an impressive online reputation.
The first thing we wanted to know was what sets Images in Design apart from the many other interior design firms in New Jersey. Tammy points to her experience, which is very important in the interior design industry, as well as to the fact that her focus is always on the client:
“This is about your space, and we’re going to make it truly yours. It’s about your needs and what you want. You’re investing in this, and it needs to be what you want.”
Tammy is not a decorator; she’s an interior designer, and she enjoys construction projects. She also handles space planning, project management and decorating emergencies, and she oversees the projects she works on with architects and builders to ensure that the space in question will work with the rest of the plan. And with Tammy’s computerized floorplans, clients can do a 3D walkthrough of their new space before building even begins.
Additionally, Tammy works on an hourly basis, which makes it possible for everyone to work with her and benefit from her expertise; even if they can’t afford to hire her for the entire project, they can hire her for day service.
We also wanted to know what their mission is at Images in Design and how they work to make the world a better place. Tammy shared with us that she became a Certified Aging in Place Specialist about five years ago, which means that she specializes in helping people stay in their homes safely for as long as possible, regardless of age or illness. Tammy has done a lot of pro-bono work to help people who have had accidents and often donates her services to those in need. Currently, she’s working on a designer showcase in Plainfield, called Grace’s House, for the Valerie Fund, and she’s designing a playroom for Grace and inspired by Grace, a 10-year old girl who is recovering from brain cancer.
Building Success Through Experience and Excellent Service
When asked what Images in Design’s secret is to such a strong online reputation, Tammy credits her 35 years of experience and her commitment to providing excellent customer service and developing good relationships with her clients. Tammy also makes it a point to resolve any issues that come up and to being responsive when her clients need her:
“People want to know that they’re being heard. Being responsive to my clients is the most important piece.”
Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Tammy has grown Images by Design through her website — which she’s had since websites were first invented — search engine optimization and Facebook. Images by Design has also done a lot in the community, including redesigning a sanctuary and making all of the bathrooms accessible in a temple, as well as community outreach and speaking engagements.
Clearly, Tammy understands a thing or two about how to build a business and grow an online reputation. Here’s her expert advice for the many other business owners working to do the same thing:
“Have strong SEO and work with a good hosting company. Don’t just have a good website; make sure people can find you. Also, maintain it.”
Congratulations to the team at Images in Design, Inc. for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Tammy, for taking the time to speak with us!
