From onboarding, training, process assistance to escalations, payments and even moral support, your assigned CM (community manager) is your go-to person for anything and everything at Livspace.
1. How many project leads can I expect to receive?
As many as you’d like. And no, we’re not kidding. Your community manager will assign you fresh leads as your sales pipeline clears. For instance, if you can juggle three projects at the design stage, and you already have two at execution and only one at the pitch stage, your manager will assign you fresh leads for you to start pitching to immediately. These numbers are all indicative. Each design partner has a different capacity, some can handle more, some less. So, you as an individual/ studio/ entrepreneur need to gauge your capacity.
2. Does Livspace filter the leads sent to design partners?
Yes. Our technology and digital marketing tools are designed to validate each lead that comes in. For instance, if a lead is outside of our scope or serviceable pin codes, the leads are automatically disqualified. Our community managers will then assign leads to their design partners based on their serviceable location, scope and budget.
3. How many projects can I work on simultaneously, as a design partner?
As many as you can handle! You will have unlimited access to fresh project leads to take up. On an average, we have seen our design partners working on about 6 projects at a time at various stages in their sales pipeline.

The higher the order value, the bigger your earnings.

Commission payouts will be transferred via NEFT on or before the 10th of the subsequent month of when your client makes a payment to us.

Apart from the stipulated site visits through your project lifetime, not necessarily. However, you can visit the site to check on progress and quality as often as you’d like. As the owner of the project, you can either appoint a supervisor on your behalf or request a site supervisor from Livspace (which is chargeable). Livspace will however regularly audit the work and share feedback (if any) with you and the service partner.
2. Can I recommend contractors to work on my Livspace projects?
Yes, definitely! Do make a recommendation to our Services team and they’ll be onboarded should they meet our quality standards.
