Are you interested in having a more profitable practice? If so, welcome to the Business of Architecture, devoted exclusively to helping the small architecture firm and solo practitioner succeed. The focus here is simple: discussion of ways for architects to make more money and use time more effectively, especially by harnessing the power of the internet and productivity tools.

Note: This isn’t for everyone.

I’ll be the first to admit that this site isn’t for everyone. For a lot of architects money is a bad word. Most of us got here because we want to design and create. But designing and creating is hard without a profitable business.

This is the Business Development 101 for Architects that isn’t offered in school. Is social media worthwhile? What are the 5 mistakes architects make when commissioning a web site? Maybe you are trying to decide if BIM is right for you. Well, tune in to discuss these topics and more. Get on our free Insider’s List and get this blog delivered right to your inbox. On the Insider’s List you’ll get access to the Business of Architecture Toolkit, which includes our exclusive book Social Media for Architects. Visit businessofarchitecture.com/ to subscribe for free.

The goal here is to share information that gives solo architects and boutique firms the ability to leverage the internet and technology for success. I want to empower architects to do what they love – I believe the world is a better place when architects shape the built environment. The web and new technologies offer tools that have enormous potential to magnify individual effort.

The profession is changing rapidly; it’s hard to keep up. BusinessofArchitecture.com is here to explore these changes and discover strategies for leveraging these tools for our benefit. As a solo architect or small firm owner, I know it is hard to keep up with all the new processes and technologies given the many demands on your time.

That is where BusinessofArchitecture.com comes in. I’ll spend my time researching these techniques, strategies and tools and then bring the results back to you so you can spend your time designing and doing what you love. All for free of course. Call it trying to give back a little.
