In this fast-paced world we live in, we often have only seconds to make a lasting impression. Everything from the clothes we wear to the way we speak gives others a sense of who we are, so it’s important to always put your best foot forward. In building a business and standing out from your competition, it’s downright CRUCIAL.
Last year I realized that my real estate business’ branding was about as exciting as a trip to the dentist. I decided to make a change, and that led to an exhausting hunt for the perfect design and marketing company. They had to be creative, outside-of-the-box thinkers and doers, but at a price that wouldn’t require a second mortgage on my house. After tons of research (and finding lots of boring, expensive companies), I found Chip Thompson through a friend’s referral.
At first, I was concerned that creating a website long-distance would be difficult, but after a few phone conferences and emails, my fears were gone. I warned him from the beginning that I could be very picky and demanding, but he assured me that he would work with me until I was happy with the result. He sent me the first visual concept for my site within a few days, and to my total surprise he nailed it on the first try! (Truth be told, I had wanted to put him through the wringer a little more to prove how picky I was, but it just happened to be perfect right away).
Throughout the entire process, Chip was efficient, patient, funny, down-to-earth, and persistent in finding solutions to fit my needs. He also came up with innovative ideas to further promote my brand that I never would have thought of! The final result is a website that I am incredibly proud to call my own. When it comes to something as important as branding your business, don’t entrust the task to someone who is just “doing a job”… give it to someone like Chip, who is passionate and knowledgeable about every aspect of marketing. With him, you’ll have a graphic designer, web designer, marketing guru, social media genius, and more… all wrapped into one!
