Believe it or not, I often recommend building your brand and website on your own…!
You might wonder why, I of all people would suggest that… I’m about to tell you.
When you start out, you don’t need a flashy website, a visual identity that is spot on, or unique messaging designed to fit you and your audience just perfectly. It’s a “nice-to-have”, at that point.
Yes, I said you do not need all that.
In the beginning you just need to start. Which on its own is not an easy feat, but that’s it.
Start with A DIY website.
Maybe have a logo on it, then go out there and figure out what you are doing, how you do things, and for who, THEN hire somebody to help you communicate that. Not the other way around [unless you have heaps of money laying around that you just need to get rid of, because it is of course very helpful! 😉 ]
I often see people hiding behind fixing and editing a website to be just “right” before they can go out and sell their goodness… yeah you know what I’m talking about, I know you have done it too.
Smiling, it’s ok, it’s also a time to think and define what you are doing and how. Just remember to not do it for too long because clarity comes from acting…not thought.
Oh, have I done that? Yes, of course. It’s even trickery when you are a brand designer and own an agency, ha, but the same rules go for me. Being aware of the excuse, [yes, it’s an excuse] can get you to change direction quicker though.
So today, I’m hoping I’ll nudge you into action, with your maybe not so perfect set up, and let you know that you can do it on your own.
Well, you don’t have to do it fully on your own.
There are lots of great tools and support out there, which brings me to something exciting! I have been working on this idea for quite some time, understanding why we make excuses for ourselves.
Sometimes you need to let things marinate, get the right experience before you can release something you are really excited about into the world. I have finally carved out time to create a course to help folks who aren’t ready to work with a professional still get fabulous guidance and support!
The truth is, there is just sooo much to know about setting up your business online – so much.
This course is something I wished I had way back when I got going, it’s a collection of all the goodness I have learned in the past decade or so.
Launch w/ Ease will not only teach you how to set up your brand and website, but also how to build your business with confidence so you can start making money.
The best part – I will be there alongside you during the whole process to support, because without support…ugh, it makes things everything a whole lot more difficult, that’s a fact.
So, hey! If you are interested in learning more about this lovely course of mine, please click here, or simply sign up below, and you will be the first to know when it’s available!
If you are not interested, no worries!
I still hope you take action on whatever you are working on, put it out there and share your goodness with the world!
