Design tips for starting your own branding and website

Years ago I designed a branding kit for social entrepreneurs, would you like to receive this?

Email me at hello@amandamulder.com with title: ‘I would love branding advice’ and I will send this pdf to you, free of charge!

Before you get started with your logo and website design, the most important aspect of your business is your foundation. Without strong roots in the ground, your business runs the risk of not being seen for its true value and you may operate from self-esteem.

I highly recommend you read The Self Worth Safari book by John Niland to get a deeper understanding of how important self-worth is before starting/pivoting/changing your career.

There is also this book with useful tips for Creative Personal Branding by Jurgen Salenbacher.

From these two foundations, you will find it much easier, quicker and cost-effective to build your business and not only the visual side of it!

SO you got your strategy done, you know why you are in the business, you know your target audience and you want to get started on the visual identity… ok ok…

If you don’t have the designer skills of Creative Adobe Suite, then check out Canva or Pixlr

Check out Unsplash for beautiful free images to use for promotion/branding.

Check out Ucraft for a website maker other than squarespace / wix / wordpress / weebly …

WordPress is the mother of all web development sites, however – if you don’t have a developer friend or finances for website maintenance person, then I recommend you not to even start with wordpress.com nor wordpress.org.

Hope this helps, if you would like advice on branding, message me so I can connect you to some people who rock it in the design world!

10 Tips to step out of your comfort zone…

There are many different ways you can introduce new experiences into your life that can help bring new perspectives, maybe… 

1) Change up your breakfast routine.
2) Allow an hour you-time each day to read a book you have always wanted to read – or I recommend The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz?
3) Explore your creative expression. Draw. Dance. Sing!
4) Take a right instead of a left even though it might be the ‘long’ way home.
5) Gift a stranger.
6) Call a long lost friend.
7) Ask friends and family for help, as little as ‘could you take the bin out please’?
8) Expand your network, check out meetup.com for cool events.
9) Try saying YES to everything this month (though know your boundaries).
10) Install Insight Timer app – meditation, sound, poems – check out Sarah Blondin and Davidji

Join free fortnightly Self-Worth Safari zoom calls organised by the Self-worth Academy: human-to-human interactive conversations regarding self-worth / confidence / self-belief.
