Getting Started Guide
Everything you need to know to work together
A good creative is one part business consultant/strategist, one part designer, one part technologist, one part programmer, one part therapist, one part business person… that’s a lot of parts, so it’s important we are a good fit.
I’m interested in working with exceptional people who:
If you don’t know where you’re going, you’ll have no idea you’ve arrived if and when you get there. If you don’t have clear goals, be prepared to work with us to define them.
Building a brand/business is hard work and takes time. Passion is the fuel you need to keep going when all the chips are down and you feel like you’re smashing your head against a brick wall.
Have a target audience
Building a brand is not all about you – it’s about ‘them.’ Building an audience through blogging, podcasting, interviews, white papers, presentations, speaking and education is the only way to generate new customers online. If you don’t already have an audience you should be prepared to build one. If you don’t know your target audience, we can help you define it.
Have a team
We don’t enjoy watching our clients implode, so if you don’t have a team (or you’re not prepared to build one) you might have some trouble convincing us to take your project on. It could be as simple as a virtual assistant to help out a few hours a week, an incredibly devoted and supportive spouse or a fully-fledged content production team, either way you’re going to need help.
We want to help you grow your brand and your business and we can’t do that without your participation. When we work together, we will demand your attention throughout the project. From providing timely feedback, to being available for chats, shooting marketing videos or answering questionnaires, you’re going to need to have the time to get stuff done.
Have a reasonable budget
If you really want to knock one out of the park, you’re going to need to make an investment. That’s just the way it is. You don’t need to re-mortgage your house but you are going to need to treat this as an investment. We will be building the foundation of your brand/business here — done right, you’ll get a positive return.
