I did this at first too, now I know better!

Better branding can begin right away

When I first started my graphic design business I felt that I should save money at every opportunity until I was making some. It made sense since I would need money in order to spend it! It led to having to redo basics like my branding, however. (I do that as my business so I could do it without spending money.) But it took a good chunk of time. And time is money! It was a while before I even noticed the disconnect between my lack of consistent branding and what I advertise as my expertise. (Embarrassing!) That may have cost me clients which definitely costs me money. Which brings me to my point. I know from my unfortunate experience that sometimes trying to save money we end up spending more!

Don’t wait (like I did)

If you are starting a business, don’t wait. Get a professional involved from the start to develop your branding so that it really reflects who you are and who you want to attract as clients. It’s one of the best investments a business owner can make!

The Blue Waters Farm logo was one I designed as soon as my client had a name. She has used it on her farm signs and all branded materials since.

Are you still trying to do your graphics yourself?

I totally understand. I am a small business owner myself and it has been my tendency from the start to go for free versus having to pay for anything that might help my business. I make exceptions of course. In areas where I know I’m incompetent I hire help. For instance to do the legal copy for my proposals or to get in depth business-building advice.

If I just press the right buttons…

If you decided, “I can do my own graphics. How hard can it be?” You have a computer, you have programs that let you put type and even pictures on a page. That’s the basis for getting the word out about your new business. Plus, there are plenty of helpful tools online that make you feel like you’re a Graphic Designer, and a lot of them are free!

Then you tried it and it was harder than you thought. It was very time-consuming. The results weren’t at all what you pictured! Oh well, now what?

There must be a cheap solution. “Maybe that friend who’s son-in-law’s nephew is studying web design can do it for me.”, you think. “He won’t charge much. He may even do it for free.”

Still, the results weren’t exactly what you liked and you didn’t get a chance to say anything before he went off the grid and you never heard from him again.

It became a bit embarrassing to show your card, handout your brochure or direct anyone to your website. That’s how it goes for many small businesses. It then becomes an issue of needing to grow to afford a “real designer” but being unable to because you can’t get any traction with the “graphics” you have!
