New Customer Story:
A website can be a great thing to have, whether you're an up-and-coming company that's headed for the big leagues, or a veteran company with a well-defined client base. I've worked with both, and everything in between. As a freelance web designer, I've found that I'm a precious commodity in a bad economy: I don't need to be paid every month as a regular member of the staff, but my services are required to keep the company afloat and marketed to its clients and would-be clients.
However, there are a lot of web designers out there, and I know that we all have our own skills. I don't want to get undercut, much less left out. So I promote myself using promotional pens. My promotion effort started years ago when I found that a lot of companies wanted a web designer but didn't have the time to look through loads of resumes.
I designed a promo pen that was black and snazzy: it caught everyone's attention. On that promo pen, I had my name, email, and my web address. I also added the addresses of the three most important websites that I had designed, and had them printed on the barrel. This way, my pen became a walking resume! All that my clients needed to do was look at my promotional pens to know what I had already worked on.
I handed the promotional pens out to my clients, and to anyone who asked for my help. Word quickly got out that there was a freelance web designer who had a lot of clients and who could do the job well and in a short amount of time. I got more clients after that!
