Today you have a near-unlimited number of choices, options, software solutions and services to help you save money and do DIY design.
But sometimes you want a designer to give everything a brief once over, or have run into a design or business problem that you want an informed opinion on. Maybe another designer created you something and you want a second set of eyes, or you need some diplomatic advice on how to navigate giving constructive and helpful feedback to your designer.
In a Quick Call with me, you’ll leverage my 15 years of experience as a designer and business strategist. If this sounds like something that could help, send me a note so I can first make sure your needs and question are a good fit for a Quick Call.
Examples of questions that work well in a Quick Call:
- I made this promotional graphic for my Instagram feed. Could you give it a quick look and recommend any design adjustments?
- I’m pretty comfortable in WordPress. Can you point me to plugins and software that work well for me to do DIY design without tanking my website speed?
- Can you recommend a second font to go with the font I’m using in this design?
- Im building a website for my restaurant. Do you have a template you can recommend?
- My website was last updated in 2002, and I don’t know what is most important to update it for today. What should be my biggest focus?
- My designer’s first mockup isn’t quite what anticipated. What kind of feedback can help us move this project forward?
- I’m a designer and need a second set of eyes on this graphic I made for my client. Can you look at it and give some brief feedback?
- I bought an ebook template and used my own color scheme. Can you review the color palette I created and let me know if the colors work?
Who is a GOOD FIT for a Quick Call?
- You have one design or small business-related question you need answered so you can progress with your project.
- You’re a small business owner who feels empowered to do things yourself but you want a bit of insight to help you move on with your next step.
- You’re working with a designer or other consultant and value a second, confidential opinion.
- You are considering hiring me for comprehensive consulting or design work and want to see how I approach a small issue before we work together on a bigger project.
Who is NOT a good fit for a Quick Call?
- You have a whole website or branding project you need reviewed. (I have services for that, and you could have a small part of your site reviewed in a Quick Call to see if you want to move ahead with a comprehensive review.)
- You’re overwhelmed by technology and where to go next with your business and don't have a very specific question or issue you need addressed in a succinct and efficient manner.
- You have a highly technical programming question (like “How do I program this database in WordPress?” or “My website is throwing up this error and I don’t know how to fix it.”). My primary expertise is in front-end design.
- You want to have multiple people meet/talk on the phone with me.
- Use the form on this page to contact me and briefly describe your Quick Call question.
- I’ll review it and make sure it's an area where I can help.
- I’ll email you to arrange payment and schedule our call.
- We’ll talk for 15 minutes at the scheduled time (I’ll call you). Calls are scheduled from 10:30 am-5pm EST.
