Happy New Year! “Ever Forward” is something I like to say all the time and it has a lot of meaning. It means you aren’t satisfied with “good enough”, with the status quo… it means always getting better, always growing, always learning.

What it’s like working with Rock Paper Simple [Video]

Hey there! So what’s it like working with working with Rock Paper Simple? Scott and Stephanie put together this great video where they share just that! (see it below!)

As Scott will tell you, it all starts with a Discovery Session… this is where we get to know more about your business, what sets you apart and what your goals are. It’s so important for us to understand what stage your business is in, what really separates you from everyone else and makes you awesome at what you do, what those goals and objectives are for you and even how big or small your want to go with your marketing, website or branding. You learn more about our team and capabilities as well and our office has lots of great snacks (and coffee… lots of and lots of coffee!). While the planning session is typically with Scott, our Business Development Manager, he will call in other members of our team as needed to help answer all of your questions!

Once we know more about you, we can help craft the best solution for you to help accomplish those goals we talked about!

Once we know what we are doing for you and an agreement has been made (make sure you tell Scott you want to share in the ceremonial Rum celebration drink!), Stephanie, our Director of Operations, takes over to manage your project and you typically get a questionnaire to fill out from her that will give us all the information we need for our next meeting, which is called the Planning Session. Why a Planning Session? Because your business and goals is unique and we want to make sure we have a REALLY good plan in place to accomplish those goals.

This Planning Session is all about going over the questionnaire, reviewing your goals, your likes, dislikes, needs and really diving deeper into the details of planning of your project. You will meet some of the team members that will be working on your project depending on what your project entails. Here we discuss colors, design style, pages for your website, specific marketing messaging and strategies, brand messaging and so much more depending on your projects. (We do send you home with some homework to send us… so good communication is key!).

Once all of that is done, we move into the design, development and/or implementation stages and get to work… but every project is different from here. Some, like Logo Design projects, are entirely design/concept/revision, while a website project will go from design mockup to copywriting to revisions to development to revisions and finally to launch… and a marketing project is an ongoing campaign!

What’s the final deliverable look like? Well, if it’s a website, along with launching it so the world can see your awesome new website, you will get training on how to use it to it’s full potential. If it’s a logo or branding project, you will receive your brand materials and files as well as learn when and how to use them. For a marketing project, you get monthly reporting and lead tracking to ensure your goals are being met and results are showing ROI. And for any creative collateral projects, you will have the final product ready for pickup here at our office or delivered right to your office (how cool is that!?)! And remember… you retain ownership of whatever we create for you!

Welcome to “Simple”!

Welcome to our new website, and more specifically… welcome to the blog on our new website!

Our company was born from the concept of “keeping it Simple” and focusing on what we are good at and the results from those efforts. You will find the same concept and focus here in our blog. We will talk about the aspects of web design, development and internet marketing that matter to YOU. We may talk about the latest news, maybe discuss responsive design or lead capture, and maybe every once in a while we will have a little fun. Something we used to say at my old marketing agency before I founded Rock Paper Simple, “branding demands personality”, will always stick with me and the companies I work with. Your clients and customers, and even my clients… they aren’t mindless automatons; they are living, breathing, human beings and they like to smile and laugh every once in a while. They like to trust and feel good around the person they are doing business with and that is where the personality comes in. Be you and don’t be afraid of who won’t like you… but go ahead and be excited about those that will like you and will do business with you.

I am very excited to launch this new website and likewise, this new blog. I look forward to many years of providing fantastic web service and educational, engaging and entertaining blog posts, videos and information. Thanks for coming by and if you have a topic you’d like us to cover in our blog, be sure to drop us a quick comment, email, tweet, phone call, snail mail… heck, even send us a message via carrier pigeon.

Here’s to you!
