Creative Management Services

Creative Management Services for your business website and marketingI know you, busy business owner…because I am one too.

Your mind is blank when it comes time to act, even though it’s so full of ideas.

Your hands are idle, even when you have a seemingly endless list of things that need to be done.

You’re frozen in an ecstatic limbo, not sure what to do with the mountain of amazing potential & excitement you’ve created for yourself!

You want to unfreeze and get back into the flow of growing your dream. But how do you do this?

Add me to your team!

I can handle the time-consuming, creative tasks of managing your online business presence, so you can focus solely on growth & profitability.

I have a knack for being creative-on-demand.

I’ve been a creative manager for corporate, small, indie & micro businesses and personal brands for a long time now. While the type of businesses may vary, one thing rings true for all my clients…they just don’t have the time or energy to develop & maintain a strong brand AND run a successful business. Both of which are highly dependent on each other!

Jennifer Langsdale of Awaken Yoga Studio

Catherine has been my website & brand manager for my entire yoga career of 10 years.  I started with a one page website just offering private sessions and a little bio – it grew as I grew. She literally translates what I see in my head to the screen. My website and print designs are always excellently done, creative and make me stand out from the rest!

FAQs

Frequently Asked QuestionsWhy are Creative Management Packages a good idea for my business?
  • You can buy packages only when you need them.
  • Plan & budget for your projects and tasks better.
  • You will know exactly what you owe because you pay up front.
  • You have the option to purchase more time, or go up a package level, if the help you need grows or evolves.
How much time does my task / project take?

This will always vary depending on your project(s). I offer a free email or Skype consultation before you buy, to help you choose the most economical package. To give you a general idea, here are some average estimates for the most common projects I am asked to do:

  • Standard email newsletter prep & scheduling normally takes 1 hour.
  • Larger email newsletters with a lot of linking and content editing can take up to 3 hours.
  • Blog post prep, proofreading, scheduling and publishing on average takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Small print design projects, like business cards, take around 1-2 hours.
  • Large print projects like flyers and brochures can be anywhere from 2-4 hours.
  • A 5-minute video editing project takes around 2 hours.
  • Small website edits can vary depending on the task.
What if I need more time?

If you need more time for a task or project that is bigger than you anticipated (for example, maybe you have more information for me to add to a newsletter), you can either buy add-on hours or go up a package level. See the package details above for more info. I will contact you directly once we are very close to using your allotted time.

What if I don’t use all the time allotted for the package I purchased?

Please don’t let this be a concern. You should have a pretty good idea which package is right for you after we discuss your needs via a free email or Skype consultation, so this should rarely happen.

Can I “roll over” unused time from a package I’ve purchased if I don’t use it all?

I’m sorry, I cannot  “roll over” allotted time past the expiration date. Please contact me if you are not sure which package is right for you and we’ll figure it out together!

 

Rush Work

What if I have a rush job, or a task that comes up mid-month?

If you have an urgent request that pops up mid-month, you can hire me outside of the package system at my rush rate of $60/hour. You can contact me here if you need rush work. If instead you decide it’s not that urgent of a task, simply add it to your list for next month!
