Cue all the freaking happy tears! 😭😭😭 2019 has been HUGE for us… Hitting some pretty massive goals that we thought were a bit of a stretch in the beginning of the year but here we are! And we’re spilling allllll of those in our year in review blog post today! If you want to see what we’ve been up to, take a peek! http://bit.ly/2rUhje4

A website is equal parts creating visual interest and providing the information your visitors are seeking. This means you often have to get creative on how you display certain information to have that perfect balance.

That’s one of our favorite things to do for our clients. Finding creative solutions using both Squarespace’s built-in features as well as using custom coding is kind of our bread and butter!

And that’s just what we did here. We used a built-in feature (an image card) and then used CSS to make it a full-bleed split screen. This particular client loves to have their content be really visual as well as engaging so we also used the built-in animation feature to have the image slide in from one side and the text slide in from the other side. And boom! We accomplished just what they were looking for!

It’s time to start your 2020 planning if you haven’t already and if you know us, you know we LOVE goal setting almost as much as we love goal achieving! One of our favorite things to do is reverse engineer our goals. That means we start with our big picture of the year and then break them down into smaller goals and actionable steps. Here’s how we typically break down our goals:

Yearly goals: Things we want to accomplish in the next year in both our personal and business lives

Quarterly goals: Check-in points to make sure we’re on track or restrategize to hit yearly goals

Monthly goals: We use an intentions worksheet (available as a free download in our content upgrades) that helps us get my mindset in the right place and check-in for priorities each month

Monthly/Weekly actionable steps: These are actionable steps to help build a roadmap to hit our monthly goals (and ultimately our quarterly and yearly goals!)

By breaking your big goals down, you’ll be able to see how they fit together and give yourself milestones along the way to keep yourself accountable as well as have natural check-ins. Check-ins are HUGE when it comes to goals so your breakdown builds them right in. #TipTuesday

Is there anything better than hearing this from one of your branding and website design clients?! “The site & creative graphics are helping to sell out the events!”

The answer is a biggggg heck no! But this also shows why it’s so important to have a strong consistent brand and online presence. It helps boost your brand recognition so your audience automatically knows it’s you as soon as they see anything from your brand. And we all know brand recognition leads to sales which leads to brand loyalty and advocates!

With the new year is just around the corner and I don’t know about you guys but we are PUMPED about our upcoming goal planning sesh. Ready to kick off the new DECADE (holy crap) with a list filled with big and small goals. Let’s be honest though, making goals is only step one though. A step that a lot of people don’t actually make it past.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We’ve tried a lot of different techniques throughout the years and today on the blog we’re sharing what has helped us the most in making goals but even more important, kept us accountable and on track to actually hit them! http://bit.ly/2Loi7xZ

Do you ever feel lonely or misunderstood as a business owner?

We know exactly how you feel and how it can often be compounded by the holiday season. Loved ones often don’t understand what we do. Maybe you feel like they think it’s time to find a “real job”.

This is exactly why having a support system outside of loved ones is so important and why we started our free Facebook group, #GoingBold. We wanted to create a safe and inviting space for fellow business owners to share ideas, ask for help and just generally cheer each other on!

If this sounds like a space you’ve been looking for, we’d LOVE to have you join us! https://www.facebook.com/groups/goingbold/

Is there really a website platform that is the BEST?! Squarespace, Wordpress, Wix, Shopify, ShowIt… It’s a question we get asked a lot and I mean how the heck are you supposed to decide? Here’s our answer, the answer depends on YOUR needs.

People will swear up and down that you should only ever use x platform, which conveniently is usually the one they work on. We’re not about that life 🙅‍♀️even when it means recommending other platforms to people who want to work with us. The key to finding the right answer for you is breaking down your priorities and the specific needs for YOUR business.

Is making maintenance and making updates on your own important or do you want full customization options that won’t be as easy to make updates? Do you have an online shop or do you also do sales online and in-person so your POS system is important? Do you want something that is easy to keep up with SEO? Do you care if you have everything in one spot or have to use a few accounts?

THESE are the types of questions that will help you find the platform that is best for you right now. Because of our answers to these questions, Squarespace has been our go-to for our website and our platform of choice for our website design projects but that doesn’t mean it will be for everyone! So before you get sold on “this is the only platform you should use” dig a little deeper… or give us a shout and we’d be happy to help you sort out what’s best for you.

Can we just gush for a minute??? We started working with Kacia Fitzgerald back in 2016 and have since watched her launch the EmpowerHER podcast and @textsfromkac along with the already wildly successful business. Now we’re so excited for the launch of her very first PRODUCT! Mainly because we love Kacia to pieces but also because we’re planner addicts and always looking for more resources to help us hit our goals!

So here’s to Kacia and her launch of the She Goes planner! 🥳🎉We’re so excited and honored to continue to work with such a badass!

Politics aren’t the only thing that can make Thanksgiving dinner awkward…🙅🏼‍♀️🙅🏻‍♀️

If you’re a business owner one of the things you may dread the most are actually the questions about your business. Now don’t get us wrong… we know Aunt Sally, your grandma and your cousin Phil are probably well intentioned but it only takes one…

“Have you had any luck in your business”
“Man, you’re so lucky to get to work from your PJs all day!”
“When are you going to get another ‘real job’”

To take you right into eyeroll capitol! While we can’t stop alllll of these, one thing we can do is educate our friends and fam. Because like we said, most of the time they really do mean well. So if you’re constantly getting asked questions like this, try speaking up (gently of course -- you don’t need a food fight to break out)! A lot of times people are just trying to connect but don’t always know how, so a little more info on your business and questions that make more sense is a great way to start.

If you need a little help, we wrote a wholeeee open letter to friends and fam that you can get some ideas from or share too! https://bit.ly/2OPNylI

One of our favorite parts of our work is the diversity of projects we get to work on -- especially on the design side! It allows us to keep our creative juices flowing, try out new techniques and really bring our clients’ visions to life.

Here’s a peek at an annual report we designed for a local Washington non-profit. For this project, they were looking for a different layout than they used previously but also one that could be mailed and wouldn’t get torn up from the seals. So what we came up with was a roll style 4-panel brochure layout that would layout the info in a new way while also minimizing the fold overlaps. Function + design!

Yes, Instagram is removing likes. But no, you don’t need to panic.😱

Honestly, we think this will actually provide us with a little more control over our own accounts and truly believe the benefits outweigh the disadvantages. Here’s what you need to know:

1️⃣You can stop getting stuck in the comparison trap when you see someone else getting a lot of likes on their posts. You can now focus on creating the content you want.
2️⃣Engagement is going to make a big switch from liking posts to leaving more thoughtful comments on posts instead. This will lead to more genuine and engaging conversations which will be great for business in the long run!
3️⃣The focus on Instagram has been shifting to Instagram Stories for a while and that’s only going to increase with this change. This also means engagement will likely increase there as well. Get ready to slide into those DMs!
4️⃣You’ll still have access to your own analytics so you can see what’s resonating with your audience and adjust your strategy accordingly.

Only time will tell how it all works out though! How are you feeling about this change? Leave us a 👍 or 👎 in the comments.

11/19/2019

Chances are, if you can’t capture the interest of your target audience from your homepage then it probably doesn’t matter how awesome your service or portfolio pages are because chances are they aren’t going to make it that far. That’s why it’s SO important to be thoughtful about the goods you’re showcasing first. Here’s a breakdown of some key things you should have on yours:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1️⃣Get to the point and do it fast! The most important thing on your homepage is telling people who you are, what you do and how you can help them! It seems simple but sometimes your message gets lost so make sure you have the answers to these + a photo of your team if you’re service-based. Personal touches help people connect with you.
2️⃣Call-to-actions. What do you want people to do? Make sure you have buttons and think about your user-experience on how you want to direct them through your website.
3️⃣Opt-in. What can you offer right off the bat fo’ free? Having an opt-in allows you to open the door for future convo whether they come back to your website right away or not. It also lets you showcase your value up front.
4️⃣Testimonials are a great way to build your credibility and showcase your abilities from others who have worked with you.

11/18/2019

Think pinning to just one board on Pinterest is enough to get your content seen? Guess again! A contributing factor in Pinterest's algorithm is your ratio of popular pins that have been pinned multiple times vs ones that have only been pinned once.

Something we do is repin some of our blog post pins to multiple boards depending on the relevant topic. For example, if we featured a case study we would pin on our blog board, followed by our branding and web design board and our Squarespace board. By doing this, we increase the chance of our followers seeing the pins in case they only follow select boards as well as the chances that those pins will appear when people search similar terms.
