8 Things you need to know before we start
There are some things we need to get clear right from the start. I have too much respect for us both to waste our time. If these things don’t apply, we just aren’t the right fit.
It’s not you, it’s me. I guard my time closely, have exacting standards about my work and I want to collaborate with people who are doing great stuff and going places. So let’s lay them right out on the table.
You and I are collaborators
I’m on your team. Your success is my success. We’re both going to be working hard. Clear communication is vital and we need to be honest with each other. I have no interest in stealing your business secrets, but I will be asking specific questions in order to really get results.
You’re going to do some leg-work
There’s packing to be done. Materials need to be gathered. Ducks need to be put into rows. Answers need to be given and decisions made. If we are going to be successful, there is work to be done by you or your team. Let’s be clear – this is going to take up a good chunk of time. You ready for it?
You need to know where you want to go
Scenic hikes are nice. But it’s hard to plan a trip if you don’t know the destination. The only way to get what you want is to know what you want. If you are ready to commit to that, then I can help you get there.
You’re going on a journey
Websites are not set and forget. They are an ongoing relationship that will take time and money. To get the results, you need to put in the work – test, improve, maintain and keep on going. But you won’t be doing it alone.
You won’t be an overnight success
Things don’t happen overnight. You won’t suddenly sell a tonne of product, attract a legion of new customers, or get to number 1 on Google overnight. All of these things take work. They take time. And they can take money. If you’re prepared to put in the resources and commitment, we can do great things.
Your website is not for you
Websites and marketing aren’t for you. They’re for your customers. My job is to translate your work, passion and offerings into a website that your customers love and buy from.
You won’t get all the new toys
Just because it’s shiny and new doesn’t mean we’re going to use it. Let’s see what actually works. What works for you. Just because all the other kids are doing it, doesn’t mean you have to waste your money chasing the new hip thing if it won’t deliver you results. Let’s look at quality tools and shape them to fit your path.
You need to love what you do
Passion is the stuff that moves mountains. If you aren’t sincere about what you are doing or just looking to make a quick buck – sorry, our services aren’t for you.
