On Houzz, there are a couple different ways Clients can discover your profile. One way Clients may find you is through browsing the “Find Professionals” on Alternatively, a client already familiar with your business might type your business name into Houzz search.

Either way a Client finds you, the best way to turn a potential client into a promising lead is through completing your Houzz profile with information and compelling photos that highlight you and the great services you offer.

Here are the steps to updating your profile:

1. Sign into your Houzz Pro account.  Click on “Your Houzz” in the top right corner and select “Edit Profile and Settings.”

2. Upload a Profile Photo. Hover over the headshot icon on the top left of your screen and click on the photo icon to add an image to represent your business. Headshots work well, or you can provide a business logo.  Crop and center your photo. High-quality photos are key to attracting leads.

3. Add a Cover Photo. To do so, click “change cover photo” above your profile name.  You can select a photo from one of your public projects in the dropdown menu. Alternatively, you can choose a photo from Houzz under the “Houzz Gallery” dropdown.  Select a photo, and click “use photo."

5. Fill out your “Public Business Information” Section.  Provide the name of your business, the category or type of work you provide, and a link to your website if you have one. Subscribing to Houzz Pro grants you access to Houzz’s custom website services. You can also add a license number, description of your business, and list of certificates and awards.

6. Check all relevant services and locations in the Services Provided and Areas Served sections.

7. Under the Typical Job Cost section, provide a range of monetary values your business targets for projects. You can elaborate on your cost range if desired.
