I use a variety of platforms to suit what you need. I often use Planoly and Facebook Business Suite for scheduling. I use Affinity photo for editing images.
Unfortunately I can not guarantee sales. I can guarantee to increase the quality of your social media platforms and you may gain new followers but I can not promise you that you will get sales from it. Consistency is key, some days may have great views and increase of followers but other days your post may only reach 5 people, but its important to keep showing up.
Your're brand awareness will increase and your feeds will be beautiful to look at, which does help gain your customers attention.
Yes! 30% of projected cost due before work begins and to secure your spot on my schedule.Another 35% of projected cost due after the completion of all mock-up material, the final 35% to be paid before the final hand over of files and/or launch of website.
I will intially design your website in Figma, it is the easiest way for us to collaborate and make any design changes you would like. When it comes to actually building your website my preferred platform is Webflow. However, if I can't convince you why I believe it is the best thing ever then I can also use WordPress, Squarespace, Wix and Shopify.
Webflow allows me to design your vision, without code or plugins. With Webflow, you can design and develop completely custom websites — visually. And yeah, Webflow's got templates, if you want them — hundreds of them, all editable without touching a line of code. But with Webflow, you don't need to rely on templates. Instead, you can start with a blank canvas, then design and develop every single detail on your own — without a developer's help, or any of the limits you’ve learned to expect from website builders.
No plugins to slow down your site, Automatic responsive images, Easy HTML5 semantics

Generally I will post 3x a week with regular stories and weekly reels, but this does depend on the content you provide, your analytics and how much you would like to spend.
Your brand is your reputation. Without branding you won't stand out from the crowd and you won't make a memorable impact on your customer. This will impact your profitability and long term success. Long story short, branding is vital to your business. Here is a great article from Forbes about it's importance.
Yes, of course you can! But I always like to encourage my customers to consider supporting a local business and considering the important fact then when you use a small business like myself you get one on one consultations, in depth questionairre's and a new friend who is as excited about your vision as you are!
Having a logo is great first step! But branding is not just about the logo, it is the entire feeling you put across to your customers. It includes the colours and fonts you use, the aesthetics, and the imagery. This helps your customer to identify and relate to your brand. Consistency is key!
Traditional marketing generally encompasses advertising via radio, television, print and the likes of. Digital marketing is just that, digital. It includes advertising on Google, Facebook, Instragram and other online platforms.
