Oliver & Spence Creative  Exclusive Design Studio - Building Lush Brands, Packaging Design, Web Design + Social Media Design

Why I took a break from Instagram .... ⠀

In next week's blog I explain why I took a break from all things social, why we rebranded, how I found my brand voice and winning those perfect ideal clients. I hope you get a chance to read it. In the meantime, have a perfectly imperfect weekend.⠀

#1 Brand Mistake Many Designer’s Make

Over-promising and under-delivering.

The very best designers have learned to over-deliver on every one of their brand promises.

Make it easy for them to choose you!

Stand out from your competition some way, somehow. Being creative in a creative world, we often feel that we offer similar services and products. However, each of us has a unique way of being and designing.

Julie and Andy from Elevation Mortgage were the most amazing clients to work with. They are the loveliest of people who are passionate about being the best they can be for their clients. Truly inspirational. If you're in need of a mortgage or mortgage re-newal I can't recommend them enough. Check out their new brand and website: elevationmortage.ca or @elevationmortgageyyc

Do you find it hard to explain your prices to your clients? So many of us do.
.
I've finally figured out what works for our business- and it involves creating bundles with services packaged up with prices. It feels like a weight has been lifted because it simplifies our world so beautifully. .
We also have absolutely targeted the types of clients we love to work with - which is other designers or creative business owners. .
.
My best advice to designers is to first find your perfect people. The people who love your work and who are comfortable with your sweet spot price point.
.
My blog this week explores more of this …
