3 Reasons Why Landscape Lighting Design is a Great Career for Women

By qb2018 | Careers, Landscape Lighting, Lighting Designers | No Comments

If you go back about 75 years or so, there were lots of careers that were considered “men only’ positions. Then WW2 happened and Rosie started riveting. She had no choice. The men riveters were mostly fighting in far away places. Then the guys came back, and women went back to the home – many reluctantly, and many… well they didn’t. Slowly but surely women started considering careers other than homemaker, seamstress, teacher, or secretary. Today, anything is possible and women work in a diverse number of jobs, many that were considered part of the “boy’s club.” Landscape lighting is a relatively new career field. It’s not like doctor, lawyer, or Indian chief. But, for some reason, it’s still a field primarily dominated by men. But it shouldn’t be. Here are 3 great reasons why LED Landscape Lighting design is a great career for women to consider: Less Competition: All business owners have to market themselves. Whether it be through in person networking, paid advertisements, or digital marketing. The likelihood of there being more women than men offering landscape lighting in one market area is slim to none. So, let’s say you’re one of if not the only woman-owned landscape…

3 Reasons You are Not Making Money as a Lighting Designer

By qb2018 | Improve Business, Lighting Designers | No Comments

“Why are my competitors killing it while I am just as good or better a lighting designer?” “Why is my revenue down when the economy is booming?” “Where are the people with REAL money to spend? Not these cheap so and so’s? Does this sound like you talking? If it does, this is what it sounds like to your friends, your family, and your business associates. “Waaaaaaaa!” Do you want some cheese with that whine?” Here are 3 things that may be holding you back from making the big bucks. You Marketing is Practically Non-Existent Quality makes a difference, and cheap marketing efforts just like cheap suits don’t look good on anyone. Cheesy flyers you make at home and stick in mail boxes will not showcase the branding message you want your company to be known for around town. Why would I expect someone who can’t design a decent ad in a magazine or a professional flyer to be able to design the lighting at my home. I’m not saying you have to learn graphic arts, but hire someone who has that skill and work with them to create a clean modern looking website optimized for key industry search terms,…

Improving Your Business Relationships with Your Local Community

By qb2018 | Improve Business, Outdoor Lighting | No Comments

Businesses not only contribute to the economic stability of local economies, they are also essential to the social and cultural well-being of local communities. Corporate enterprises of all sizes have a responsibility to “give back.” All companies must be engaged with their communities – with customers, other business leaders, political representatives, and local charitable organizations. To do so shows an investment beyond mere dollars and cents, and its a great way to promote your local lighting design services company while making a difference improving the community. There are many ways an outdoor lighting business can improve relationships by “giving back.” Here are a few: Volunteer Many of the biggest companies offer their employees paid-time off to volunteer for causes they believe in. Other companies choose to volunteer as an entire organization. Either way, the dedication of time and resources to volunteering shows a level of commitment to causes that improve the community as a whole. Companies that encourage volunteer activity find employees are generally happier because they feel supported by an employer who cares, which goes a long way in retaining and attracting talent along with creating many new business relationships that often leads a company into great word of…

LED Lighting for a Luxury Beachfront Resort

By qb2018 | LED Landscape Lighting, LED Lights Manufacturers, LED Outdoor Lighting | No Comments

At Garden Light LED, we are tasked to light all kinds of properties, from privately owned mansions to hotels and restaurants. One of our more recent and most interesting lighting designs was a local condo resort and we had a blast making it happen. Mandalay Beach Club in Clearwater Beach, FL, a luxury condo resort, is one of the most sought-after properties on the strip. Located directly on the beach, facing the Gulf of Mexico, this stunning development sits right next to the famous Pier 60, where there is a nightly happening equal to Mallory Square in Key West, and only 100 yards away from the new Clearwater Beach walk. The Mandalay is in a high-profile space and needed to be lit perfectly to show off it’s elegance to the thousand of tourists who pass by it daily and nightly. Garden Light LED was quickly inspired by the Mandalay’s scenery and beautiful sunsets during the resort’s outdoor landscape design process. We started by selecting the amber color temperature output for the majority of the fixtures being installed. The amber tones complimented the color scheme of the building and created a warmth that reflected the natural light on this stretch of…
