It’s kinda a given that big, multi-million dollar companies need to have in-house help to give around-the-clock 24/7 design work. But what about your company? Do you really need to have someone on-call to help with that new logo, ad, or brochure you have lined up?
The answer is a resounding yes.
Of course, you can always try to do it yourself, or try to contact some designer online and pay them to work on it. But considering the time you have to take to work on the project, the effort to communicate your needs to the designer, etc, in the end, is it really worth it?
That’s why having a company on-call to work with you and help with all your design needs is a necessary, not a luxury.
No matter what size your business is, the key to any successful company is your presentation. Bottom line. If you expect to sell, you gotta make it look not just good, it’s got to look best.
Companies like Flocksy, that offer unlimited design work for a set fee every month are growing by leaps and bounds. It’s starting to be realized the invaluable time that you can save (and invest in other areas of your business) by simply having someone else oversee your design work.
So, is it necessary? Yeah, we think so. And you should too.
I hope this has been of some help to you and you’re business. If you have any questions on the subject, please feel free to ask. I will answer them if I can.
So you’re looking for a logo. Maybe you already have one and it’s time for an upgrade, maybe you are starting a new company and need to have a stunning new logo to show off. Whatever the case, we all know that the hard part is how do you communicate to your designer what exactly you are looking for?
Here are five easy tips to make finding the perfect logo for you made easy.
One: Make a list of what you are looking for. What do you want your design to communicate? Boldness, confidence, and statement? Or soft, calming, and peaceful?
Two: Find your color scheme. If you have lots of bright primary colors on your website, you probably don’t want to have a logo with pastels in it.
Three: What do you NOT want to see in your design? It helps designers if you let them know exactly what you are not looking for. Do you hate the color yellow? Want a super professional vibe? Don’t want any peace signs? Make sure you are clear on the list of no-nos.
Four: How much do you want to spend? This is the unpleasant, but also a necessary part of any design process. You must figure out your budget first thing. This also falls into the category of where you are going to get your logo designed? Are you going to use a site like 99 Designs, or Hatchwise, or are you going the more traditional route with one freelance designer?
Five: Have FUN! A new logo is something to get excited about! It’s all about change, and change is a good thing. Have fun, enjoy the process, and don’t forget that this is all about you, and what you are looking for.

When starting out with building a small business the little things can help as much as the big ones. One thing that has helped us build our social media up and make our website look stunning is graphic design, web development, and copywriting.
When you can have one set price and don’t have to pay every time you want something done it makes all the difference!
Here at Flocksy, we offer unlimited graphic design, web development, and copywriting for one set price starting at $349 a month, whereas other places might charge by the project. However by having one set price makes it so all the people starting out with small businesses can get the best graphic designs and web development just like the big ones.
All of our PMs ( project manager) have a good, hard-working team behind them and can give you designs within a 24-hour turnaround. PMs can give you a call anytime you need them to and you talk directly to the PM that communicates to you on the website. Which makes it easier for you because they already know what’s happening with your project. We also give a 7-day money back guarantee, so you can give us a try and see if we do designs to your liking!
Often it can be hard work to get your business to where you’re bringing in the right amount of money to pay for expenses and to bring in a good profit. So a very important thing to do would be to make your website and any social media platforms you have look the very best they can. Because that is what they’re going to be seeing first.
I’m going to tell you a little bit about a few of the best designs you can use that will help you with your business.
Mockups are great if you want to show a book cover or anything for that matter. It shows how the cover would look on the book and then you know if it’s what you’re looking for. And it can be tweaked until it looks just how you were planning. Trust me, mockups can be extremely helpful!
Flyers are another good way to get your business out there. No matter what event you have coming up, you can count on flyers getting you more guests than you expected. The better the design, the better you look to do business with!
T-shirt designs are awesome if you want t-shirts for your business. You could sell the t-shirts to people, and then right there you have free advertisement for your business! But of course, you’ll only come out on the right end if you have the best designs and best prices.
These are only a few of the amazing things we can do and that can help you grow your business. I’m going to leave some links at the bottom if you want to see our website and a few of our social media platforms.
Give us a call or DM us on Instagram if you want to ask some questions about what we do more, someone will be more than happy to talk with you!
Thank you for taking the time to read. I really hope you enjoyed it!
Some people think that social media is a bad thing, and yes, it can be, if used incorrectly. But we think quite the contrary. We believe that social media can be hugely beneficial for your business. Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, Snapchat, and many more can benefit your business immensely. All of these can display your product, let people know about your business, and overall bring you customers. The social media team here at Flocksy use almost all of these and have found that they have helped us a lot with building our business.
It is important for your business for many reasons, but one of the (many) is that it can be used to communicate with your customers in ways that you don’t usually get the chance to. You can be more casual and laid back with potential customers, let them see that although you’re a business, you aren’t always formal and serious. They can be free to ask you questions in the comments that they might not always feel as comfortable asking on your site. It lets your customers see a whole new side to your business that they may not have even known existed.
Let’s take Instagram for instance. Instagram has added the recent feature of Instagram Stories. You can take a photo or video and your followers can see it for 24 hours. You could use this feature to your business’s advantage by doing a day in the life. You could take videos of your day, at the office, going out for coffee. All the things that your customers don’t get to see when they visit your site. But this is just one of the many great advantages there are to having social media for your business.
It may take a while before you start seeing signs that these social media platforms are making a difference, but if used correctly, over time you will see the increase of customers.
If your business doesn’t have at least one social media platform we highly encourage you to start one. It’ll be worth the work when you see the increase in costumers.
