about


The Architect Marketing Institute is the leading provider of marketing training and resources for architects.

The Architect Marketing Institute is an international research organization and think tank focused on improving the built environment and raising the profile of architecture and good design around the world.

Seeing a lack of information on marketing and business development best practices for small firm architects, leading ArchiCAD and web expert Eric Bobrow, architect marketing coach Richard Petrie and architect Enoch Bartlett Sears, AIA founded the Architect Marketing Institute in 2016.

Individually, these 3 have accumulated years worth of experience and knowledge in the best business development and marketing practices that work for selling professional, high-value services.

They came together in 2014 to form the Architect Marketing Academy, a marketing and business development training program for small architecture firm principals, partners, and solo practitioners.

Building upon the success of the Academy, having coached many architects to achieve business and financial success, the Architect Marketing Institute was formed to bring these tools and resources to more architects from around the world.

My frustration is gone ... I haven't felt like this since I first started by firm. This is a great thing!

I'm standing in front of what is perhaps the most visible sign of my success. This is my office that I bought last year with the increased revenue from my business.

Having a systematized approach to marketing allows others in our firm to be more efficient and access a system that has depth to it ... so we are actually planning ahead.

Now I need more staff, I don't need any more work ... I'm even working for other architects, designing their houses. That's how bad it's got!

Before we were doing any project that came through the door ... Now we are very selective about which clients we pick. Everyone is happier.
