You may not be overly familiar with the term “Greenwashing”. In fact you may not be familiar with it at all.
However, if you promote, market or make any advertising claims about your products or services being “sustainable” “green” or “eco-friendly” then you should understand the importance of this term. And more so, the negative impact it could have on your business!
What Greenwashing Is…
Greenwashing is in essence the practice of making unsubstantiated or misleading claims about the actual environmental benefits of a product, service, technology or company. And with the FTC cracking down on such deceptive claims, doing so could land you and your biz in deep doo doo!
“Recent polls reflect that 78% of consumers would boycott a Greenwashed product”
Consultations for creative projects are an incredibly important part of the design process. They are for the benefit of both the client and designer. Regardless of the type of services you may require, by gathering relevant info via an initial consultation, it assists in determining what your creative needs may or may not be.
If you find yourself reaching out to a designer, it’s because you’re faced with a creative business challenge. There is likely a gap with where you are now and where you’d like to be. To close this gap and create a solution tailored to your needs, it starts with a consultation.
Postcards may seem like a thing of the past given our digital landscape. However, inboxes are now inundated and filled with marketing emails which can average over 120 per day if not more.
Considering our tendency to hit the delete button due to overload, now may be a very good time to send out a postcard to promote your business. It may allow you to stand out from the crowd!
Furthermore, if your audience is local and you are a new business, a postcard could be a great opportunity to introduce yourself to the neighborhood. AND you can include a special promotion to inspire folks to come and pay you a visit so they may see the great products or services you have to offer.
“Email inboxes are full, mailboxes are empty.”
We now live in a world of immediate gratification. One where everything is urgent or
“I want it now”.
You may have that OMG moment where you realize you want a new logo, brochure or website for your business. And want it done ASAP!
However, your project’s desired completion date may not coincide with a designer’s availability.
