WHAT IF I TOLD YOU THAT YOU HAD A CHOICE?
A CHOICE TO HAVE THE BUSINESS OF YOUR DREAMS, WITH A BEAUTIFUL WEBSITE AND SYSTEMS TO MAKE THIS ONLINE BUSINESS THING LESS PAINFUL?
A choice to quiet that little voice in your head that says “This should be easier”, to build your site on a platform that will help your business not hinder it, and most importantly make that pit in your stomach go away …. you know the one …. the one that comes with sweaty palms and dry mouth, and not the good kind of adrenaline, the kind of adrenaline that comes from spinning your wheels on the same thing for hours that you know should take 5 minutes.
WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
In the beginning, this company was all about helping entrepreneurs navigate their website after seeing countless people get over charged and under served by some (not all) designers and developers and left with a website and branding they hated and had to re-do anyways. Then as we grew, the questions about other things related to your website and online business were too loud to ignore. So now we talk about it all. How it all integrates into your business. How to take your website, make it freaking awesome then incorporate all of those used to be confusing bits, like social media, SEO, SEM and more, into it and kick ass.
Everything I do is based on the premise that when building a business you should have an understanding of how it all works (in plain terms cause the whoseits they talk about, is huh?) and if you want to, to be able to put it all together yourself. Together we work on getting clear about your purpose and give you actionable steps for bringing your business to life.
I help entrepreneurs, big and small, build and maintain fluff free business that give them the results they need to grow and expand.
Your business should work for you, not against you. It’s about understanding how you’re going to use the tools available to move your business forward, how your clients will use your website to take the actions you need them to take so you get the results you want, and how to best serve yourself while serving your customer. That is what this is all about.
Savage Media Ventures is about:
UNDERSTANDING – Giving you the tools to start your business on the right path, be able to look within and create a house on the internet, aka “your online presence”, that is representative of your greatness and all that you’re capable of.
FACTORS – Understanding the needs of your customers and how that affects your business and your marketing efforts, so that you can effectively use your website and online presence to connect with them and be the one that fulfills their needs.
RESULTS – Getting you results from your website, social media and blogging efforts, because why are you doing this if not to get results?
A LITTLE ABOUT ME
I built my first website all by hand, painstaking line of code after painstaking line of code, for a junior high project. It was about faeries and it was beautiful.
My next website was built for my previous business of 15 years. I was also one of the first on Facebook to have a business page (claim to fame haha). I ran a lifestyle blog with a friend about fashion and art in the city here, as well as co-run a fashion and art group where we went to different events and art shows as a group and took in what our city had to offer.
I had a photography business for a few years where I took pictures for people who owned vintage, antique and all around beautiful cars.
To fall into the web and graphic design space came naturally as I was always designing posters, business cards and all sorts of marketing materials for our own businesses as well as others.
Read More About Me
I grew in Romania where entrepreneurship is not something I had ever heard of. My parents worked for the biggest bank in the country and we had a lot of perks that came with it, but they were jobs still at the end of the day. I was taught how to do girly things, like cook and clean and keep house, which was fine, but I was an artist and a dreamer in a family of workers, which left much to be desired.
Moving to Canada in ’97 didn’t prove to be much of an improvement for me, evidenced by the fact I moved out when I was 15, and then getting kicked out of high school for not living at home. But in the true Ox fashion I slowly plowed ahead and forged my own path in life.
I went on to graduate only a year behind and went to college to get three Degrees, one of them in Business.
I had started a jewelry business shortly before my 16th birthday as well, which I operated for almost 15 years, turning it in when my storage locker got broken into and tens of thousands of dollars of supplies got stolen out of there.
I’ve been working with my husband for the past three years in his business, and we have grown the business each year adding new branches to it and having a lot of fun along the way. If you want to know how to work with your significant other without one of you ending up in jail or sleeping on the couch, I have some tips for you there as well!
I have a natural eye for the big picture of your business and I’m here because I want to see you do things you didn’t even know could happen.
So this is about you.
Your business, your website and how you show up in the world.
Your website should show your passion and what you can do.
So stop settling for half-assed and let’s get to it.
