We all have our strengths...
We are truly blessed to say that we do what we were meant to do, and making a living doing it!
There are parts of our jobs that we don’t love to do.
For example… I hate accounting. So it’s easier to pass that task on to somebody who loves accounting. They’ll do a better job at it than I ever would, and it allows me to do a better job.
You know what I mean?
What I call “creative collaboration” is basically that… working with others who are really good at things we personally suck at. Recommending a print shop or a logo designer when a client needs those services, because it provides a better experience for everyone.
Successful businesses are built on strong relationships, and that is what I call “creative collaboration.”
TL;DR: I’ll work for you or your clients, and I’ll do it on your terms. Likewise, I will send you new customers when the need arises. It’s a win win situation!
For Graphic Designers
Like Peanut Butter & Jelly
I once spent several months trying to design my own logo before asking a professional graphic designer. She threw a sample together in a matter of minutes that was everything I’d wanted. She made it look so easy!!!
I could have spent another 6 months changing my image repeatedly, and still would not have created anything close to what she “whipped together”. The lesson learned is not that hard to figure out.
Professionals know their art.
The difference between the time it would take me to get it right (if, that was even possible) and the time it took her is actually several things. Training, skill, and experience may be part of it… but the underlying difference is interest, passion, and raw talent.
There’s something else I’ve learned about graphic designers over the years. We go together, like peanut butter and bananas (or jelly, if you prefer) because I tend to hear the same thing from every graphic artist I work with…
“Thank God! I hate doing that!”
It’s not uncommon for you to assume the task of proofreading, editing, or even providing the copy even though it’s not what you specialize in.
For Web Developers
You code. I write.
The web provides an immediate sense of urgency.
Most internet users have less patience and a shortened attention span.
Ineffective website content is one of the leading causes of a high bounce rate, and that is almost always responsible for a low conversion rate.
When a client does not see any return for their investment, they feel like they wasted money on web development.
On the other hand, successful websites will bring new clients through referrals.
If your web development services don’t already include quality website copywriting services, the long term value of your services are compromised. My mission is to ensure that your clients receive the continued value they expect and deserve.
Customers prefer the convenience of full-service, get-the-job-done-right-the-first-time.
Nobody likes searching for different service providers to deal with things one step at a time, especially when there is a major overlap in those “things”.
