Now more than ever, we, as developers and designers and marketers, need to be serving our clients and growing our business through marketing.
- Be authentic and human.
- Address your clients' needs and priorities upfront.
- Be open and transparent with your clients.
- Accept and share that you don't have all the answers.
- Above all, be there for and on the same page with your clients.
- Be their rock!
There are going to be some bumps and bruises but you'll get through this too.
While it's a terrible and tough time, we as small businesses have the ability to adapt quickly and adjust to the needs of our clients.
If it is weeks or months before this turns around, the landscape of business, as well as human interaction, will have changed forever.
The moment is now to surround yourself with like-minded people, support, folks going through similar scenarios, and others that are only a few paces ahead of you on the same path.
This group exists to serve:
- As a safe place for any designer, developer, or client services business owner to share ideas and get support
- As access to direct message me 👋
- As access to a private podcast & writings; the only places where I'll be writing and sharing content regularly (including what I'm working on, marketing ideas & campaigns, strategy & advice, and what's working & not working in today's market)
- As access to a monthly AMA and one-hour Q & A Zoom call
- MOST OF ALL YOU! -- If you have a request for something specific that you would like me to talk about, share, or explore, let me know.
When I started my own full-time development business in 2002, after 18-months I found myself back inside a cube.
In 2010, when I left the cubes for good, I didn't want to go back. Most importantly, I had learned from the mistakes that I made the first time around. On my own! No help from anyone going through the same thing.
Times are different and I want to give back to the freelance community that has given so much to me.
This community is meant to smooth the path for you looking to build a business of your own design to live the kind of life you want.
