Well, January is off to a running start! With one website launch already checked off the list (take a look at the brand-new River City Runners and Walkers Club website) and another launch planned for January 8th, One Nine Design is just one month away from her first birthday!
It seems a little unreal when those milestones creep up on you (here's looking at you 39th birthday next week!). But they can be such important reminders of how fast life goes and how little time we have to waste this one life we're given.
Ahead of my one-year anniversary, I thought it was important to really focus in on what this business is all about. I shared my vision statement in my last post and today, I want to drill down a little more into the details.
What I am planning to focus on includes:
- Serving the small business or non-profit well with a modern, mobile-responsive website that meets their needs in both design and budget
- Training small business owners and non-profits leaders to control and update their own domain/website on their own terms
- Providing outstanding customer service through being available when needed, delivering quality services, and establishing long-lasting relationships
- Giving back to the local community (both personally and professionally) and continuing to provide short-term loans to female entrepreneurs around the world using Kiva
When I write it out, it seems so simple. And yet, I believe there is a huge market for this focus given the demand for services I'm seeing every day. Consumers are hungry for great services, from local companies that follow through on their word and are easy to work with.
I'm beyond excited to walk this path in 2018 and see what's in store! I hope you'll follow along with me over on Facebook as I share tips and tricks related to website design and smart content creation!
And, I'll be taking off into this new year with a brand-new logo! I shared a sneak peek the other day but here is the final, complete logo
Isn' it lovely? I've already shared how much I love that little purple dot. I also love the designer's take on the mobile-responsiveness by using the rectangles to represent the iPad and iPhone. The scripty font is delightful and as the word Design stretches outside the box, you can count on the fact that I'm always thinking outside the box, as well.
