How can you maximize your account? Let’s take a look.

Build your Planner 5D Pro account profile

Your Pro account is like a mini-website where you can show off your skills. It’s also an opportunity to create a professional profile that clients will want to engage with. This is your chance to establish your online presence, showcase your expertise and let potential clients find you.

Start with a profile picture. People like to connect with other people, so having your photo on your profile is a great way to establish a human connection with those that come to your site. You don’t need to have a business-style headshot, but make sure your photo reflects the type of clients you want to attract. This means that sometimes that can mean a suit, and sometimes, more casual attire will serve you better.

Your profile is a great way to show your personality by sharing a bit about yourself. Describe who you are, your design style and your background in interior design. Potential clients will be looking for someone they can relate to, and the more information you have, the better your chances are of landing new clients.

Share information about your services

When it comes to home renovations and decorating projects, it’s easy to get carried away. By clearly stating your services and offerings, you can create a clear boundary that will keep your projects organized and ensure you keep your sanity. If you only plan on working with remote clients, make you state that on your profile. Are you willing to manage someone’s renovation, or are you only offering to create the floor plan and design?

Many clients hire professional designers because they don’t have the skills or simply want someone else to do the design for them. It’s one thing to create a design for a kitchen renovation and quite another to have to deal with contractors and tradespeople doing the actual work. It’s up to you to define what services you offer, but having them clearly stated on your profile can clear up potential issues.

Showcase your skills with a portfolio

When it comes to hiring an interior designer, potential clients want to see examples of your design work. They want to see your style and if it aligns with what they are looking for. Your Planner 5D Pro account is a great place to showcase your work with a branded portfolio, so make sure you upload your best work.

Include projects that you are proud of and ones that you feel showcase your skills and talent. They can be examples of past client projects or designs you’ve done for yourself or your friends and family. If you don’t have enough real-life examples, you can easily create design projects with Planner 5D. Create floor plans and designs for any room in the house, or design a whole house from your imagination. You can also add landscaping projects, pools and decks to demonstrate your design range.

Create your portfolio with Planner 5D Pro

As a Planner 5D Pro user, you also have access to our latest technology - the Design Generator. Jump-start your creative process in minutes by uploading a photo of any space (it can be empty or furnished) and selecting the room's function. In just a few minutes, you have six fully-furnished renders in different styles that you can use for visualizing potential projects for your clients.

Ask clients for reviews

Encourage your customers to leave reviews after the project is done so you can include them on your profile. Happy clients are the best referrals for any business. As most people look for what others have said about their experience before they commit, having positive reviews is a great way to establish credibility and build trust. Sharing their positive experience will encourage others to hire you as well.


Having a personal website is a great way for others to find your business, establish your credibility and expertise and offer value to people looking for your services. Planner 5D Pro makes it easy to create an online profile and show off your skills without having to worry about maintaining a website and dealing with any potential technical issues. We do that for you.

By creating a branded profile, you can also manage your projects and communicate with clients in one place. Additionally, we’ll feature your profile in our directory of designers offering design services. Getting new clients can be challenging, and we’re here to help make that process easier, so you can focus on creating great designs.
