I did The HSR certification and the Color Certification as well. I have been using templates in my presentations and proposals and my clients are really impress with all the details they got in very presentation I made. I love the fact that I can go back and re-do modules that need more attention and always find the solution for my problems there. I hope this new program is something that I can start using immediately in my business! Thank you Audra!
I'm in love with your training!! I too believe in not reinventing the wheel and love all the templates you provide. Especially, all the branding materials and great current technology that you test beforehand. You save us so much time and $$ that the invest in training is a no brainer!! Thank you seems flat but know it is really heart felt!
Audra Slinkey's training's have been incredibly valuable to creating and sustaining my business. She has wonderful insight into what works and what doesn't. I could not have created the business I have without her knowledge and expertise. Thank you Audra!
The HSR Templates are absolutely priceless! In fact, the entire business model, marketing tools and training are beyond anything I could ever imagine. Audra is just incredible! She has vision, drive and understanding of what it takes to be successful in business, including putting herself in her client's shoes throughout the entire process. This is my second HSR certification/course I have taken with Audra - the first being Home Staging and Redesign. I highly recommend anyone who is interested in any of these fields to take Audra's trainings!
I loved the E-Design training! It was short, sweet and the HSR Templates are beyond valuable as I am just launching this added service. The templates are current and appeal to a mass audience, which will only serve to generate frequent transactions without having to spend hours "re-inventing". As an HSR graduate, I am proud to have taken all of Audra's courses including her Staging and Redesign Course, Color Certification, and now E-Design. My business will be able to service a wide range of clientele in the immediate moments, as well as in the future as well!
Audra,You always say that people buy from people they know and trust. I purchased the training from you because I have taken other training courses from you and they are always over the top with ALL the information, forms, technology, you need to launch a business. I always learn so much from the technology side. And you always make it easy for us to understand. Audra you are Brilliant and you have a wonderful gift that you give to others. Thank you for all you do for us as members of HSR, CCE and now EED!
This was my first 'training' with Audra and the information was presented very clearly and in a straight forward manner. The take aways alone are worth the cost of the course - I am confident moving forward in my decision and know not only how to create great e-designs for my clients, but how to best market them to reach markets I hadn't considered.
Again Audra, you have nailed the training. I am so thrilled and excited to add E-Design to my HSR training!! Thank you!
The e-Design training was straightforward and easy to follow. Because Audra's training was so detailed on how to implement and execute the entire process, I will be able to begin implementing this service to clients almost immediately (which allows me to quickly recoup the cost of training and start making more money).
Audra, as usual your training was gorgeous, inspiring, and motivating. You have fully equipped me with the tools and understanding needed to engage in an incredible and timely business model. I can't thank you enough!
I am a repeat customer of Audra's and I just love her training programs. She makes learning easy, fun and enjoyable. I was looking into adding e Design into my list of services and this program came along at just the right time. Audra's programs are so thorough, there is no guess work and no reinventing the wheel. She makes it so you can get started right away.
This is by far the best and quick course with so many details and worksheets that can actually help you set up your business instantly. I haven't seen or come across any such course material that can help bring your dreams and passion to reality in a matter of few days. This is a complete and wholesome package for both a newbie and a veteran in the design industry.
Oh my! My life has changed due to your mentoring and your programs. Being an Expert E-Designer is only going to better my skills and my accessibility for design. Audra you have created E Design for people like myself who love design and décor but are not necessarily technically savvy. Without your expertise I don't think I would have taken the time to learn computer generated design. Thank you for all you do! You are truly amazing!!
The Certified Expert E-Designer Program is the 3rd training program I've taken from Audra Slinkey and per usual she does not disappoint! Audra is able to take vast amounts of information and break it down into easy to understand segments. She gives you a clear path on how to proceed every step of the way, while giving you an incredible amount of knowledge and guidance to succeed. Kudos Audra for yet another well-designed training program!
Audra could not be more helpful in her E-Design training. What a great training model to springboard your design business. A wealth of information provided! I feel confident and ready to market my design services 🙂
Love and appreciate the support of having design templates, business process, and coaching on how to be successful with E-Design!! Thank you, Audra
The E-Design training was the best thing for me and the development of my business. Having everything needed to start selling my E-Design services and getting paid all on line is a dream come true. The HSR templates were the icing on the cake.
I can say that your training is more than I had expected, your marketing knowledge mixed with the technology is so accurate. Can wait to update this new service to my customer and also to promote on social media. Many thank
The E-Design course was Fabulous! I loved that Audra did a webinar first to introduce you to the course and get a feel for what is offered. Then you can really decide if you want to invest in the course, and trust me you will! Very informative and she walks you through each step giving you options on how you can incorporate E-Design to your business. The HSR Templates, Design files, and E-Design training are are a wonderful addition for my Staging / Design business. Thank you Audra xoxo
Another fabulous training by Audra! I am a HSR graduate and am always impressed by the depth and ease of the programs. All the work has been done for me, no detail was left out... I have everything I need to run a successful business. Thank you Audra!
2 years ago I took Audra's Certified Color Expert class. I so enjoyed being able to take this class online at my own pace at home. This year I was most excited about going to RESACON to learn more about E-Design. When I learned that Audra had a class for this I didn't hesitate to sign up! She has a relaxed, easy going style while being very informative. I especially like having a step by step process all ready in place. All the templates were a great bonus. I look forward to adding this service for my clients. Thank you, Audra!!
Typical of Audra's certification training, this Expert E-Design training exceeded my expectations 🙂 I have heard of Design Files and eDesign before but I didn't understand it, until I took Audra's training. I now realize that this is a GREAT service that I can add to my business with zero overhead! Quite frankly, it combines so many things that I like to do: design, shop, and use technology. I cannot wait to see where this part of my business takes me and am hopeful to see it really take off!
Oh Audra, just amazing. You provide so much insight and make the journey exciting! Thank you!!

You've Got A Question? We've Got The Answer...

Wow! I'm amazed at all the cool board templates in my account...will I get more?
Yes! Our designers love creating these boards and we have BIG plans for different ways to use them to help your business. Although we don't benefit as a training company by adding to your DesignFiles subscription, we can't help but want to be helpful as you pioneer this industry:-).
How did this training get started and why did Audra created it?
Great question! Here's a video from Audra all about her story and how this benefits you...
Are the HSR Templates you offer in the DesignFiles copyright or free for us to use as we wish?
- The HSR Template Projects are NEVER to be given in their entirety for free to anyone in order to prevent widespread distribution. You may however share the BOARD IMAGES ONLY (NOT LINKS OR PRESENTATION) to clients and in your materials as an "example" of what they will receive.
- The HSR Templates are primarily to be used as "starting points" for your projects. You've just saved 4 hours of work, by starting with a beautiful board, so now swap out some products and go from there.
- Never give an HSR Template project away for free. If we see that you are doing that, your HSR Templates will be revoked.
Is this course 100% online?
Yes, because you will want to always be able to refer back to the instructions. The class is at your fingertips and you can hit the "rewind" button to refer back to sections at any time as a member.
Can I use an iPad to go through the training and build boards?
Yes, for the training but the DesignFiles board technology can be more difficult on an iPad and is more ideal/efficient on a computer. It still works but will take you more time.
Do I have to be an Interior Designer, Decorator or Home Stager to take this course?
No. In fact, you may decide to just create a business doing E-Design Consultations which is a ton of fun!
Having said that, the course is REALLY ESSENTIAL to those already in the industry since it creates a sales funnel for their design business through the gateway service of e-design.
Here's what Veteran Designer and Stager Gina Gailing of Big Style Staging had to say about the course...
I just finished the HSR E-Design course and some of the Design Files videos... MIND BLOWN!... SPEECHLESS!
This is going to be a game changer for me and my design projects.
For years, I have been creating these boards in Photoshop, then turning them into pdfs, then manually creating links to the products. I just finished a design project that took me 6 hours to complete, I could have done it within an hour with Design Files!
Audra's Class sets you up with all your marketing and branding needs, you don't have to spend days writing copy and branding yourself. I will be able to have this up on my website in no time. Worth every single penny (her design boards alone are worth the price) and than some 🙂
How long will it take me to go through the Expert E-Designer course?
On average, it takes someone 2-3 days to get through it all. The course is broken up into 4 Training Video Modules that each take a couple hours to absorb. It’s a lot of valuable material, so you won’t want to rush. Since it’s at your own pace, you set your own hours and will LOVE the idea of being able to refer back to the training throughout your membership.

We also recommend you take the time to look over your new DesignFiles Master Account. This populated account filled with over 75 Design Projects will be a starting point for all your new client projects, so get to know it and love it.
When can I use the Expert E-Designer logos on my website and marketing materials?
We have a variety of cool Edesign logos for you to be able to use in your own marketing once you’ve gone through all the modules and completed a simple quiz at the end of Module 3 which insures you are confident about your newfound e-design knowledge. You will also want to include the initials EE after your name as an additional designation you've gone through.
Do I get a Certificate of Completion?
Yes! At the end of the course, you take a short quiz for your Certified Expert E-Designer Certificate. You also get the benefit of our logos and being a part of the largest group of E-Designers collectively!
I'm not in the United States, will this training and the boards be relevant to me?
Yes and no. Yes, in the the training is universal and the easy copy and paste forms, emails, images for you to use instantly will be a HUGE time saver.
In terms of the DesignFiles boards...while the products sourced in the boards were all online product, some of the vendors do ship internationally while some do not. The whole point to the boards is that you are getting a starting point to work from and a HUGE inspiration platform. Simply swap out the products that are not a fit, change the images, do whatever you like to make them your own.
The alternative is you have a BLANK account:(
