Uplevel your Design Business

Brandfix Course Uplevel Page

Some of my mistakes over the years include:

  • Using a selfie taken in the mirror as my first about page photo.
  • Trying to force a personality that was not me as part of branding my design business, because I thought it was necessary for success.
  • Inadvertently drawing the wrong type of clients with what I thought were well-thought out packages.

Learn how to recognize disconnects in your own brand

What you say, how you present yourself, and what you offer all have a direct effect on the clients you attract and your ability to uplevel your design business.

How to connect your daily actions to big goals and move your business forward

It’s that time of year… when we instinctively reflect back and look ahead at the same time. Throughout most of my design career I’ve flown from one year into the next, pretty much by the seat of my pants. Without a plan. Without measurable goals. Just doing the work that lands in my inbox. And…

Marketing is so much more than a website

Your website is a marketing tool. Nothing more. And unlike what you might have learned from Field of Dreams, there’s no guarantee that if you build it they will come. Your website isn’t magical… it doesn’t hold the key to your business success. It’s not that powerful, really. As a copywriter, I watch many entrepreneurs…
