Selling A Million Dollars In Design
May 15th, 2017 1:00pm (CST)
Development is clear cut. It works or it doesn’t. The code is well-written or it’s a mess. Design on the other hand, is subjective, with the success of a project often based on the client’s ideas, perceptions, opinions, and personal experiences of what good design is.
While Jennifer Bourn is partner and lead designer for Bourn Creative, designing high-end, complex, custom WordPress sites and brand suites, she had also sold well over a million dollars in side projects and add-on projects alone — and the journey has been good, bad, and at times, down right ugly. This webinar will skip the sugar-coating and get right to the mistakes made, lessons learned, and contract changes implemented. You’ll walk away with a deeper understanding of the role design plays in business, how to sell design, and how to navigate the sales process with clients.
If you’re a designer who rocks at design but feels a little less confident selling your services, you’re a business or agency owner who now find themselves selling design, or you’re a developer who wants to better understand pitching design to clients, this webinar is for you
