I recently launched my own financial planning firm. I was so overwhelmed that I just wanted someone else To Make The Branding Happen. Enter Karin. I was especially impressed by her process, which was methodical, understandable to a lay person (me), allowed for rethinking along the way before we ever got too far down the wrong path, and consistently encouraged me to think about myself and my business from a client perspective. Not only was her design work and process a revelation, but her personality shone through, and it helped reassure me on my worst days. I love the end product, and I can only hope that I forge fun, comfortable relationships with my clients as Karin did with me!

HOW IT WORKS

If you’re anything like us, you like to check things off your list (and chances are, you needed this done yesterday).
Yep, we know how that goes!
We work with one client at a time. Our process and timeline are clear from the start, so you know what’s expected from you and what you can expect from us. This structured process will ensure you receive the dedicated time and attention required to create a unique, stellar brand.

YOU MAY HAVE THE BEST PRODUCT IN ALL OF HUMAN HISTORY, BUT IT'S NOT ENOUGH IF YOU CAN’T REACH THE AUDIENCE THAT NEEDS IT.

We can help.

PREPARATION

Preparation is required on your part to lay some groundwork before we begin. As soon as you have signed-on for a specific start date, you will receive all the information you need, including a Trello board (project management tool) with our agenda, a Dropbox folder organized for all the pieces we will be creating, and a comprehensive workbook for you to fill out. You will provide us with inspirational images that we will use to craft a board for your suggested look and feel.

PHASE 1

We will review your workbook and research your competition to establish the path to tell your unique story. We produce an Inspiration Board for your review to make sure we’re on the same page visually. Then we develop logo concepts that we will refine, resulting in a custom Brand Style Board that includes fonts, colors, style, logo, logo variations, etc.

PHASE 2

We create your marketing material (business cards, email signature, brochure, etc.) and set you up on your social media and email marketing platforms. You will receive a home page wire frame for your review and we will start drafting up your site.

PHASE 3

Website development galore! We will populate the site with your brand’s unique elements and style it per our visual direction. My team will proof, format and refine the copy. You will get the keys to your kingdom and we will have a call to go over the back-end of the site if you choose to manage it yourself.

PHASE 4

Time to show the world your brand! We will review your site with a fine-tooth comb and make any necessary adjustments.

Let's create something we’re both proud of.

Our sole purpose: to make your business look, be and do better.

INVESTMENT

I charge a 10% non-refundable fee to book a spot in my calendar with a signed contract, 50% down to start the project, and 40% at completion.
Payment plans are available. (Travel expense is not included)
If you are looking for more customization, require additional services, or have a special request, I am happy to provide you with a personalized quote. eCommerce functionality optional.

AVAILABILITY

I’m typically booked 2 months out, so please keep that in mind when you plan your project. If you feel that two+ months is too long to wait (and you needed this done yesterday!), keep in mind that there’s prep work required that you could start now. And once we begin your project, you’ll have a new brand and website within ONE MONTH!

Before inquiring, please be sure to look over my pricing and services above.

ARE WE DONE AFTER THAT?
NOPE, WE WON’T LEAVE YOU HANGING.
We will be around.

 

Retainers

We won’t just let you wander aimlessly when we are done. We are here to keep supporting you and your business. From monthly site updates, hourly designs, coaching or perhaps a round of golf – we’ve got your back. Because you can’t get rid of us that easily!

Development

Need something fully customized? We’ve got you covered. We are nerdy enough to be able to hand-code whatever it is that your heart desires. We are experts in HTML, CSS, PHP, and dissecting existing scripts and coding functions in order to repurpose them for new and better uses.

PPC

When you first go live with your new site, it can take a while to build up “organic juice” to put you higher up on search engines. During this period we often recommend using Pay Per Click (PPC) advertising to get your site visible and start making sales. We can help set these accounts up and manage them long term for you.

 

 

SEO

We provide in-depth organic keyword research, recommendations and continuous on-page optimizations (content/copy edits, page titles, meta-data) to help increase your keyword rankings and organic traffic and get you higher up on search engines.
