Are You Ready to do This?

Honesty is the best policy, so let's be open and honest with one another from the very beginning.  Please check the basic requirements below to determine if we are a good fit for one another.  If our philosophies are a good fit, then let's take that next step!  The sooner we do, the sooner you will have an awesome online presence - your very own piece of cyberspace!

Business Goals

Yes, goals can be boring, but goal setters realize just how invaluable they are.  After all, without goals, how do you know where you're going, or when you arrive?  

If you have well defined goals, then you're ready to go.  If you need a little help defining and setting your business goals, then make a note of that as you go through the Let's Work Together pages.  A separate quote for business consulting can be prepared for you in addition to the website quote.

 

Passion

Building an online business takes time and a LOT of effort.  Passion for what you do is that special ingredient that will keep you going even when it seems failure is imminent.  If you believe in yourself, your business, and what you're doing, then you will know what that passion feels like.  It's what wakes you up in the morning, what keeps you going through an afternoon lull, and what causes you to work late into the night.  That drive that just doesn't quit.  We both need this special ingredient to make your project a success!

 

An Audience

Wow, so how do you get potential customers/clients to your website?  You need an audience!  An online audience is built with solid branding (who you are and what you're all about) that filters across the web via blogging, social media posts/tweets, product creation/sales, online advertising, interviews, white papers, e-books, and a number of other things.

If you don't have an audience, it's time to start building one.  While the heavy lifting of this task is up to you (after all who better to choose your clients than you?), we can provide some guidance and ideas to help you along the way.

 

A Budget

You've heard the expression "It takes money to make money."  Well, that is true.  If you're passionate about your business, have business goals, and a target audience, then you are probably already investing your time and money in your business.

Having a trusted web designer and consultant on board as a member of your core team is a good investment in your business.  That's why I love what I do - because I like bringing value to your business, sure, but also because I just love it when I'm there for your "light bulb" moments and your successes!  Be fair and reasonable with your website budget and it will all be worth it.

A Team

Although we often think we can "do it all," most of us quickly learn we cannot.  It takes a team (sometimes it seems like an army) to get a business up and running.  

Building key relationships with other professionals is crucial to any successful business.  When you hire a trusted web designer like me you have access to my skills and expertise, and I in turn can bring additional leverage and expertise to the table from the key relationships I've fostered within my business.  It's a win-win!

 

Time, Time, Time

You've heard the expression "time is money?"  That is especially applicable when it comes to running a business.  The more efficiently one can use their time the better it is for the business and the business owner.  What does that mean for us?  If we work together, we need to be available to answer questions, and put in the time and effort required for your project.  In other words, I need you as much as you need me.
