New Year… New Image?

new year goalIt’s a new year – time for new beginnings and fresh starts.  Are you starting an exciting new business venture? Or maybe you’re  ready to take your existing business to the next level?  Either way, you need to make sure that what people are seeing outside the walls of your business, truly reflects the quality you offer within.

Can a well-designed business card, brochure and website really do that? Yes!  And the cool thing is you can be assured that Small Business Design Solutions will get to know you and  your business well enough to communicate your vision clearly.  For an extremely affordable cost, you can have a coordinated look that is professional and inviting to your potential customers.

Most small business owners keep quite busy putting their efforts into sales, customers, products, paperwork, employees, etc. – all very important things.  However when it comes to marketing materials, do-it-yourself becomes the method of choice because professional design “costs too much.”

Maybe you’ve thrown your name, phone number and email address on a pre-designed business card template and knocked them out on a personal printer.  BUT…

  • ooops – your competitor used the same design
  • card quality is flimsy
  • printing is crooked
  • logo (if you have one)  is not unique

Maybe you’ve set up your own website, or had your teenager do it for you.  Found cheap hosting, got a domain name.  Everyone should find you now. BUT…

  • wow, you spent a lot more time trying to figure it out than you thought you would, and you probably paid for more than you really need
  • you Google yourself and you’re not listed
  • huh, what’s an A Record and an IP address?
  • the content is there, but you didn’t know how to resize the pictures so you scrapped them
  • you aren’t too thrilled with the overall look – but that’s okay, at least you have a website.

Noooooo – these things are important!  When people are deciding within five seconds if they’re going to stay or leave your site, make sure they want to stay!

Not everyone is a computer pro with an eye for design, and that’s okay – because we are!  And most of all we are passionate about helping the small business owner get the look you deserve, at a cost that you can afford!  You can get absolutely everything you need for your business for under $1,000.  Individual items cost even less.  Check out our website for package pricing, samples of our work and testimonials from happy clients.  Then give us a shout to start transforming your image today!
