With more redundancies and pressure on companies to reduce overheads, more people are looking to start up their own small businesses with low overheads but with plenty of experience. So how does a new business get started? Holly Small Design has helped numerous individuals and partnerships get their business started with a professional image from day one.
With over 11 years in business myself, I completely understand how hard it can be to run a business. Not only do you have to excel at the service you offer, but you also have to understand the legal requirements and all the other responsibilites that come with being a business owner - whether you are a sole trader, partnership or limited company.
The other thing you suddenly need to do is have a crash course in IT and understand how your business can get noticed and found. That's where I have helped many start ups who are brilliant at their job but just don't know how to go about making it into a business that can attract clients. Someone once said that you don't get a second chance to make a first impression, so I love helping clients make the best first impression through their website or business stationery!
During my 11 years in business I have helped a number of people who have come to me because their web designer or graphic designer has suddenly disappeared without a trace or suddenly broken all communication. It's important for businesses to retain the rights to their designs and make sure they keep original copies and take ownership. It never ceases to amaze me how many large companies and organisations don't even have the original artwork for their logo - their company brand! I always make sure that companies get a copy of their logo in it's original state and various other formats which work with web based graphics and print on any scale.
So if you need help with starting a business and need help with creating a logo, website or any printed materials, please do give me a call to discuss the options.
