“Why should I have to apply?”
I understand this is a unique request, but necessary to make sure our objectives align as partners and I only open limited slots per month.
Frequently Asked Questions
What do you do?
I’m a story-teller. More specifically, in terms of what I can do for you, I’m a brand strategist & am here to help you add clarity to your voice.
Who do you do it for?
With the exception of certain projects being particularly exciting, I tend to focus on small businesses trying to get to that next big step in the relationship with their best clients (and help them get rid of the toxic ones).
I’m particularly keen on entrepreneurs or aspiring entrepreneurs that want to lead with a socially/environmentally progressive message.
I only need a specific task, can you do it?
Probably not. But hey, don’t take it the wrong way. I’ve plenty of awesome creatives I can refer you to. It’s just that I’m a long-term relationship kinda guy. We’re in it for the long haul and I truly want to be sure we’ll be a great fit to work together so I want to know EVERYTHING about what your business does.
It’s why ALL of my clients go through an exploratory phase known as the Brandstorm™.
Do you work hourly?
I don’t. Because I want to learn specifically about the goals that you have for growing your project, I work alongside you to make those important decisions.
Bless their hearts, but order-takers are just that. Give them a set of tasks with an hourly rate, and they’ll make sure they take their sweet time to drain your resources.
Flat-rate pricing protects you from hidden fees and motivates me to deliver on that promised efficiency to get you results.
I don’t aim to be another of your vendors. I’m working towards being your partner.
How are you better?
There will always be someone better. However, if you fit the criteria of the type of client I want to collaborate with and are looking for that brand strategy TLC, I can get your brand strategy aligned with your project goals in a week.
How do you deliver that fast?
Yes, I’ve ‘productized’ my services. And it’s because I’ve set a specific scope for each.
To deliver on quality and efficiency, it’s paramount that we establish early on our mutual responsibilities:
- I need your undivided & responsive attention
- You must have a healthy budget
- Be able to delegate low priority tasks so you and I can concentrate on high-level strategic thinking
- Let me do what I do best (brand design guidance) so we can put together a premium brand implementation strategy for what you do best.
Is there life after your flagship services?
Why of course there is. Having an amazing brand identity won’t be a direct consequence to increase your business value (that is, more sales), but terrible branding will make sure that it fails…or worse yet, remain mediocre.
But we can get to those details later after we’ve established rapport & had experience working together.
Can we talk before I make a payment?
You can & you can’t.
I’m sure you’re a swell personality, but I need to reiterate my restricted availability.
To deliver on speed and efficiency, I can only give my time to clients that are ready to actively work with me.
Go ahead and sign up for my newsletter, check out my journal entries, go through my free email training, or ask me questions on my social media channels to be assured I know a thing or two about business branding.
However, you can fill the form above and see if you qualify for both of us to assess if we’d be a good fit to work together.
