It seems like it was just yesterday when we were writing out our 2011 resolutions. Now another year has come and gone, with a farewell to 2011 and a hello to 2012. With the New Year, we can make new resolutions and new promises. As we all make many personal fitness and personality New Year’s resolutions, I think it is also just as important to make them from the design perspective.
Looking back on the year to see if your business has grown is extremely important. And if it has or hasn’t, maybe it is because of your marketing and graphic design choices, Writing out some New Year’s Resolutions will give you a chance to resolve any mistakes you might of made, and outline what you plan to do for next year. Do this and all of your graphic design for your business will be more organized and ready for the New Year.
Take lessons from 2011
If one of your marketing strategies wasn’t working so well for you, change it. Don’t make the same mistake repeatedly. This will save you time and money in the long haul. Figure out what strengths and weaknesses you are having with your designs in the business and make sure they are all turned in to strengths with your new opportunities for the New Year.
Narrow your designer
If you have ten different graphic designers you are going to, limit it to just one. Alpha Media House can do all of the design work for you, instead of going to a print designer and a web designer. Don’t be afraid to go with just a single business, because it will ultimately result in the best designs. When a company truly knows who they are designing for the design work will become substantially more appealing.
Expand your media
Have you reached out to customers every way possible? Today there is all kinds of ways to get new customers. Online, in store, flyers, magazines, you name it. Make sure you are not limiting yourself on this. Talk with your designer or Alpha media House about what else you can do that you are not already for your company. A New Year truly means a fresh start.
Change it up!
Are you tired of always seeing the same old thing day in and day out? Think about changing things up a bit! Maybe even offering new sales and promotions, or change you color scheme completely! It is a great time to revamp your company and the identity. Alpha Media House can makeover any logo or website, and make you ready for a new year! Always be ready to innovate.
Be a great client
Designers of course want to work with the best clients. While the designer needs to make this a resolution for themselves, a client can help out a lot from pinpointing this as there resolution. Make sure that you are fun and easy to work with. If any designer has opted out of working with you, it may be time to reconsider for you are working with.
