Why Another Podcast?
You might wonder if the design industry truly needs another podcast, and the answer is a resounding yes. The design world is evolving rapidly, and as professionals, we must adapt to these changes. In this podcast, we’ll discuss how to make marketing in the design industry more accessible and effective.
Before we dive deeper, let me introduce myself. I’m a seasoned designer with over 30 years of experience, based in Naples, Florida. My career began in commercial design, and I later transitioned into a blend of commercial and residential design. My journey towards better marketing started with a pivotal moment at a marketing event, where I made a game-changing investment in Magnetic Marketing.
The Magnetic Shift in Perspective
Investing in Magnetic Marketing marked a significant shift in how I approached my business. It taught me the power of concentrated marketing efforts and understanding our customers’ needs. This shift would eventually lead me to explore coaching and changing the trajectory of my career.
Exploring New Avenues: Coaching and Mastermind
Joining a mastermind group, consisting of diverse business owners, provided me with valuable insights from outside our industry. This diverse perspective proved invaluable as I embarked on my journey into coaching. My philosophy as a coach mirrors my approach as a designer: building strong rapport and connections.
Simplified Marketing for Designers
Marketing can often feel overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. Just as Scott Houston simplified piano learning with “Piano in a Flash,” we can simplify marketing for designers. Our aim is to provide designers with practical, non-sleazy marketing strategies that resonate with their ideal clients.
The Design Industry at a Crossroads
Our industry stands at a crossroads, shaped by the internet, heightened competition, and internal self-doubts. We often prioritize pleasing clients over our own well-being, leading to stress and imposter syndrome. However, this doesn’t have to be our reality. We can set boundaries and build profitable, fulfilling businesses.
