Seems I have been doing design and marketing for whole of my life!!! - And I wouldn't do anything else. Love designing for web and print, love designing logos, love doing new stuff. Gosh, have even designed the interface for a desktop phone and an iPhone app!!!
Businesses, no matter if they are SME, a small local firm or even a sole trader, always need abit of help and advise in branding their product and getting it seen by consumers.
Over my 18 years, I have worked for large B2B US companies using direct mail, large online commercial companies selling to consumers via email marketing, supplier affiliate marketing schemes and web based banners, public sector organisations promoting the use of languages in business, and a group of telecoms companies providing cheap international calls. Have also helped one man bands set up their Facebook business page, and posted once a week to drive likes and improve viral sharing - and the business rolled in.
Business Cards, compliment slips, letterheads and stickers. Pens, rules and keyrings for events. The list is endless...
Social Media Marketing is the current king, with business keen to promote themselves of Facebook, Pinterest, Linkedin and Twitter.
But always remember that somewhere, someone still wants to flick through a catalogue and a magazines to buy their stuff.
Designers and marketeers all over the world should always be as flexible as they can with their clients, help them, advise them and "hit the nail on the head".
"Anything is possible"
