Opportunity is a funny thing, when you aren’t looking for it, it seems to pop up left and right. When I began RavenWood Creative, I networked, I passed out business cards and told former colleagues and friends all about my Marketing and Communication experience. I depended on Word-of-Mouth advertising and it worked great. Former colleagues gave me opportunities to work on projects both internally in their companies and externally to try to market their wares or services.
Everything was going great. The company I started, which I thought would be providing mostly writing and graphic design services, quickly evolved to one providing web design 80 percent of the time. I found there was a need for small and medium size businesses to have a single source of marketing materials, whether they are online or on paper. WordPress became a powerful ally, as most clients wanted the ability to create content and update their own website to talk directly to their customers. My design skills came in handy when creating new web graphics and corresponding brochures, business cards and advertisements. My desktop publishing skills were tested and expanded as I began laying out hundreds of pages of reports and books for clients such as Monitoring Analytics and Flourtown Fire Company.
Then I saw it, an ad from a financial firm, they needed help with their marketing and communications. The job entails everything I’ve been doing with RavenWood Creative wrapped up in a neat little company that is rapidly growing and with plenty of opportunity. So as my relationship changes with my clients, I ask for patience and understanding as we make this transition to a new opportunity for all of us. It’s been a pleasure working with everyone, as most relationships go, they’ve had there ups and downs, but in the end I hope your relationship with RavenWood Creative has helped grow your business and opened new opportunities.
