Connect with my Clients…
1) What was your desire when you were looking for someone like me?
I was looking to connect with an artist who had the ability to create a unique image for me to use for my online ecourse, The Social Media Map. I met Lisa in person at a community event and then later on saw her beautiful illustrations for another ecourse that I was participating in, and I knew I had found the right person to help me.
2) What did you do to search for a solution to this need?
I didn’t need to search it’s almost as if Lisa arrived just as I needed her. Which is always a bonus and just felt completely right.
3) How did you understand that you needed the solution that I offer?
I believe each business is unique and through-out all of my business branding and marketing materials for Scarletta I want to use images that are unique, either created by me or bespoke for my business. I believe it is essential to express our own ideas and creativity and of course personal brands with our businesses.
4) What were the important attributes of my solution to help you ultimately decide to invest in my service?
It is important for me to work with other creative businesses, who simply get it and are on a similar wavelength. And I just knew when I met Lisa and saw her work that she is the right fit for me. Our businesses complement each other as I teach others to use social media marketing with purpose and personality.
5) What 4 words would you write to describe yourself as a female entrepreneur?
Ooooh this is tricky! Inspiring, personable, authentic, and of course sociable!
6) How does your business feel?
Welcoming, honest and inspiring to others to connect and share
7) I invite you to comment on my process for creating custom-crafted artwork.
Lisa takes the time to understand exactly what you want and as if by magic creates her illustration. Her process is very thorough and she gets under the skin of you and your business.
8) How has custom-crafted images benefitted your brand and services?
I am delighted with Lisa’s work and love it that the image is completely bespoke to me and my business personality. It makes me smile every time I look at it.
9) What advice would you give someone who is considering hiring an artist or designer?
Be clear what it is you want, but also be open to suggestions to allow Lisa’s work to flow. You won’t be disappointed!
