If you have a product or service that you offer online, then you need to be hosting webinars!
Webinars are great way to:
If you’re offering an information product, say, an SEO Strategy Guide, the objective of the webinar would be to explain the core concepts in your product, while holding back the deeper details and some of the key “secrets” that you can offer in your full paid product. A webinar success story that you can follow is Lewis Howes, who used webinars to promote his LinkedIn Networking guide, making MILLIONS off of sales!
Remember valuable content is king, and you won’t get a penny back unless you develop a product that truly brings value to your clients.
Here is a project we just completed for Katey Jo MUA (Make Up Artist). She is an up and coming makeup artist based out of San Francisco, CA. We developed her branding, logo and business cards and have them showcased as a featured project on Behance! We also worked with her to provide some key marketing tips to expand local awareness of her services. I wanted to share her new website, the flat art and some views of the print product here:
For her branding identity, she was looking to build a sleek/semi corporate/sexy design. We achieved that with very serious dark grey and black tones, while highlighting a thin sexy pink tone in her look. Finally, the geometric graphic that we incorporated into her logo represents the attention to fine detail and relflects the actual physical intricate blending of makeup product that is unique to her work...
Katey has an active social media integration plan with her business in order to get new client leads, she is using Instagram to her advantage to gaining followers from all over the web, and will be using Pinterest as well in the future.
Live Website Design (Click to Visit: www.ktjomua.com)
I recently just finished my contract last week doing designs for NHL Stadium Series and Winter Classic, and man I must say... it's been an experience! Seeing your hard work on live TV, being exposed to tens of thousands of live attendees and millions on viewers at home just feels damn good! Here are some shots and a video showcasing the final game our team designed at Moss Sports. Video copyright belongs to NHL. If you are looking for a huge scale product like this, you would need to contact Moss Sports - I contracted as a production designer with their in house team... however I do have the capabilities, skills, and expertise to design work at this scale! Shout out to the team at Moss Sports - Berkeley!
NHL Stadium Series 2014 - Rangers Vs Devils
Everybody go watch NBC to see my graphics at Yankee Stadium! It's gonna be a good game! NHL Stadium Series, Rangers vs Devils. This was definitely a team effort, but as far as the design goes, I was on a team with just 2 other awesome designers. I apologize for the poor image quality... these are just images taken from my iPhone of my TV as the NHL doesn't allow original art to be released.
Dear Customers and Clients,
I love you! You are the ones who bring me inspiration for new designs… the lifeblood of this talent! Every day I think to myself, how can I deliver a better/more professional service? Well, for my clients who are getting websites from me... I have good news!
Good news is… my "How do I edit my website??" powerpoint lecture is now developed, and will be taught to all my clients! Save money on maintenance!
Of course the keynote presentation comes with hands on instruction, but I've chiseled my lecture down to a simple 30 minute time block!
After the completion of every web design, my clients can now decide if they want a consultation/interactive lecture on how to edit their new website!
Of course, there is still the option to pay me for current website edits; however, now you have the chance to take it on yourself!
If you give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day.
I'm happy to give back to my customers,
Graphic Designer, Website Designer, Logo Designer, Brand Designer!
I've been a busy man, a busy website designer, and a busy entrepreneur! A lot of positive developments have been taking place!
As you might know already, when I am not designing awesome websites and logos, I am working as an EMT saving the world! (Well.. maybe I'm being a bit dramatic) Nevertheless, working as an EMT on the night shift takes a toll on the body and mind, and really has limited the amount of design work I am able to do effectively and creatively. Luckily, I had the fortune some time ago to lift a patient that was over 300 pounds, which resulted in me getting a gnarly double hernia. Yes, I said luckily! Due to this injury, I have been able to free my schedule, and open up to new clients for design jobs. I haven't worked an EMT shift all summer, instead I've been doing graphic work for old and new clients along with my ambulance company. While I just underwent surgery last week, and feeling awesomely loopy due to prescription narcotics… I'm truly stoked because I've had time to update my business plan and develop more ways to provide excellent customer service!
Changes I've made on my website!
Google Analytics has given me thorough analysis of my customer's movements through my website. I have looked at what pages you visitors read, and what pages you visitors skip out on. I have seen which countries view my website, along with specific zip codes in the USA. By weeding through this information, I've decided to update a couple pages.
Changes I've made to my business!
Dear Clients, Other Designers, and Generally Curious People,
Pricing is a task a lot of designers struggle with, and I’m regularly asked how I work it out. Of course, with Barton Designs I stick within my boundaries for the most part!
This design pricing formula explains how we designers can come up with price quotes:
No-one knows better than you how much talent you have, and every project specification is different. If your client is asking for a rush-job, they’ll expect to pay a higher rate. And finally, the physical location of my clients doesn’t change what I charge, but it could alter what the client is willing to spend...
Hope this helps!
