Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

We have had a fun year this year and we hope you have had a pretty good year too! In fact, as we get ready to end the year, we are gearing up for new website projects and some interesting consulting work plus website audit.

But that’s not all.

We’re also preparing our book for its second print run as we have updated some major sections including a brand-new bonus chapter on e-commerce. Once this book is done, we have other projects in the pipeline too – my podcast for example. (Each year we challenge ourselves to do something that scares us.)

So you see, 2020 is turning out to be another year of interesting projects for ourselves.

It’s also our 22nd year in business in 2020. It’s been a long time in business starting from the day Nic quit his first-ever art director’s job to open Redbox Studio.

We’ve learnt major lessons along the way and that is why our clients come to us. We help them with shortcuts – preventing a lot of the mistakes that they are bound to make.

I was just talking to a potential client in Canada this morning who hadn’t strategized her content and website to fully market her business. I remarked that her own story needs to be told and loudly too. She had an epiphany and agreed that we should sit down for a further assessment and web consultation as well as craft a website strategy for her business after Christmas.

That’s what we’re good at – helping you tell your brand story so that you can stand out proudly in the industry. We do this using content, marketing as well as a well-planned website that makes you proud to show it off. None of those templated designs that look like everyone else’s designs.

Think bespoke website design with a kickass strategy.

Because these days, you can get anyone to implement a campaign but you can’t get just about anyone to help you work out a robust strategy underlined with your values and principles.

This is the work we would be doing more and more in the coming year. This is our strength.

Take the next few days of rest and rejuvenation to think about what your business or brand stands for.

What are your strengths and how will you use these strengths in 2020?

Does this strength once identified give you joy and allow you to help more of your customers? (Because heck, you don’t want to spend all your life doing something you don’t like, right?)

How will you convey these strengths professionally and credibly on your website, your number one home base? How will you convey them on your LinkedIn, Instagram and Facebook?

What kinds of prospects and customers will your strengths attract?

How happy will you be, engaged in this kind of work?

There’s no wrong or right in business.

You only work on what you want to work on. That’s the freedom of being your own boss. You decide what you want to do; no one is forcing you to do what you don’t want to do. (If you feel you’re not in control, why this is so? You should be in full control of your business otherwise something is seriously wrong.)

That said, we wish you lots of rumination this holiday.

Have a blessed Christmas everyone!
