I’ve found this to be a truth: that it can really help if you are persistent when you are in business. Whether it’s visiting a coffee shop twice a week (week after week—they know my usual there) to see if the owner is ready to hand off his menu design changes or digging deep into the code of a client’s website to find a way to get an update done, persistence pays off. I can’t charge for the persistent part of my job of course because it’s kind of a given. But when word of mouth gets me more and more clients and referrals I know my persistence is truly worth it!
Persistence is hopeful for good results. These are signs I did for a Las Vegas Design Center once.
Have you been persistent in trying to get a new client or in serving one you have or in just keeping in touch with a prospect? Tell me about it in the comments, I’d love to know!
I know that when I am thinking that I might need something done by another expert I fear what it will set me back. And if I’m not quite in a place to buy I hold off, not even inquiring about the cost. In fact I tend to think, “I can’t do that, it’ll be too expensive.” That is until it gets to the point that I need that thing the expert does, whatever that is, and I come up with what it takes no matter what!
Design need not be costly.
So if you are putting off graphic design for your business because you fear the cost, be reassured that we are trained and skilled and it is totally worth what it costs to get effective communication though quality graphic design. But if you aren’t ready you aren’t ready. At Pat Creedon Design we keep costs down because we realize that small businesses have to watch every penny. We have low overhead and can work at a fast pace to be cost-effective. That means that when you are ready you can be confident you are getting an excellent value.
