When you start a new business you want to get it right . . . its your baby . . your project . . .maybe even your livelihood!
You need a name, a logo, some business cards, maybe some flyers. . . and a responsive website (desktop, laptop, tablet and mobile friendly) oh yeah somewhere people can look you up online . . .
. . . and you’ll need social media pages too . . .
but what you might not realise, is that you need all these things to belong together . . . so the most important thing you need to establish for your new business is your brand . . .
. . . a set of colours, fonts, shapes, patterns that work together with your logo, that are flexible and can be repeated in the same but different way . . .
. . . everywhere that potential customers have visual contact with your new business. . .
. . . a quality professional design identity followed by repetition is the first building block towards success.
The latest new business to take advantage of an Awesome branding package from wild Ideas has really benefited from The Quangle Effect . . . .
First I want to apologise for not blogging these past 2 weeks. . . .
Half Term . . . . plus two inset days (teacher training so school closed to kids) . . . . and a busy schedule seems to have taken their toll . . . .

thank you to her for helping Wild Ideas original graphic design to launch another Awesome Brand . . . .

. . . . which is also a great opportunity to be able to promote the services of the people that I have done the design for. . . .
. . . . sometimes it won’t appeal to everybody . . . . but on this particular occasion the lovely memory items that this lady (Miss E) is selling on her great new website could find a place in every single household. . . .
. . . and because of this great new website they are accessible to all of YOU wherever you may be . . . .

I had a lovely conversation on Monday with a copywriter friend, which led to an bit of an eye opening revelation about responsive websites.
In fact we got on so well, and our business models are so similar that I think we will soon be working together to be able to offer better services to each of our respective clients.
Gayle Edwards is a copywriter based in Lichfield and during our meeting we talked about her own website and why she is not that keen on it.
I had a look when I got home and it’s very nice.
In fact the only immediate thing that I noticed is that it is not a responsive website.
When I said this to her, I was quite surprised when she responded telling me that to be honest she did not know what a responsive website was. . .
So there was the eye opener . . . . a kind of reminder really too – for me – to not assume that everyone is in the know about everything.
But if you have an online presence then it really ought to include a responsive website . . . .
so what is it?
It is always great to be able to help new businesses get their feet off the ground with fantastic branding that gives them credibility and a professional look right from the start.
And today I am able to tell you about one of those businesses. . . and include lots of helpful tips along the way.
Cost of course is always an issue . . . even if funds are available, making the right call on how to allocate them has to be done right.
That is why Wild Ideas (that’s me) and my associates at DBN web design decided to put together some business branding packages at discounted bundled prices
. . . as well as Wild Ideas interest free payment terms. . . you have no excuse for getting fabulous branding at exceptional prices.
Q. . Are you a new business who wants start your business growth journey looking great?
Q. . Have you done the DIY branding just to get you going and realise the next step on your business growth journey is a professional revamp? . . . .
A. . business growth means . . . working with a competent and capable designer to create cohesive branding that works across the whole spectrum of your marketing.
Firsty I would like to say “Happy Birthday”(for yesterday) to my colleague, webmaster (and cousin) Dennis at DBN web design.
Secondly I am going to congratulate him on another excellent coding execution, of a Wild Ideas website design.
The latest collaboration website project to go live must be the most dramatic transformation we have done so far.
This client already had a website, but ( I hope she won’t mind me being brutally honest), it was quite terrible.
Proper DIY, totally unprofessional, and the images were completely random – they made no sense whatsoever to the business the site was trying to promote. . . .
Respond, answer, say something in reply, react, retort.
1. Are you good at it?
2. Do you even bother?
3. Does it depend who is asking and what they say?
Q. How bad do you feel when others DO NOT respond to you?
Last week my eldest son turned 9.**
Apparently, according to his teacher (from yesterdays parents evening) he listens well in class!
I pretty much know that he listens to me, but he chooses* to hardly ever respond!
A. Well its often irritating, it can be annoying and, sometimes frustrating, particularly when you have asked a question.
So 2015 is now well underway and the Wild Ideas and DBN webmaster team have now completed another website that has gone live.
This was the last of our 2014 offer FREE sites !
(BUT – we have new offers in the planning stage)
Anyway . . . .
According to the pet foods manufacturers association
24% of households own a dog,
and if you break this down into regions then across the midlands that figure increases to an average of 27%. . . .
So are you interested in investigating the opportunities for (free) mentoring, support and assistance for your business?
Just yesterday, I had a meeting with a representative from Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce . . . . .
. . . . to introduce me to the availability of business help and development via various schemes that are part of their Growth Hub.
So what has Blackpool got to do with any of that?
