Tish Gance  |  Experience Designer

HI, I'M TISH.

I believe that we need to bring common sense back to business.

 

With so much digital noise, too many marketing options, and a marketplace seemingly driven by smartphones, finding the right path to your customers can be confusing, if not outright daunting.

 

Customers are no longer easily swayed with gimmicks, tactics, and the hard sell.
And really, those things are no fun anyway for you or your clients.

 

Connecting with your ideal customers should be exciting and rewarding.
 If it's not, maybe you don't need a change in tools, but a change in perspective.

 

In a world that's constantly changing, the one thing that remains true
is people remember and value a great experience.

Any they PAY for it.

 

If you want to improve your bottom line, let's start at the top
and design the path to your success.

WHAT WE DO

Together, we will design you an Amazing Small Business Experience

or in other words...

We fix the things that suck, and make them awesome.

SITES THAT WORK

MARKETING MOJO

BEYOND THE BRAND

Most small businesses build a website because they feel they have to.

 

While a solid online presence is necessary to do business in this day and age, if your website is merely a fluffier version of your business card it's not going to get you results.

 

So let's get your site working for you, instead of merely validating your existence on the web.

Luck is where preparation meets opportunity.

Effective marketing is built from your customers journey to solve their problem or achieve a goal.

When you know your customers story, your marketing speaks to your audience, building trust and relationships.

Don't leave your efforts to the roll of the dice.

Been in business for a few years?

 

Growing to meet a new market or solidifying  your place above the competition means thinking differently, and challenging the status quo.

 

Elevating your business while reinforcing your Brand requires defining a clear path to success.

 

Let's map your journey to awesome.

At the time I met Tish, I had gone through several different marketing/website/advertising companies that took as much money as possible to treat us like every other online marketing campaign in my industry. It was frustrating, expensive and ineffective. In leaps Tish. From our first meeting I was confident and excited because it was clear that she had a different concept. Tish has been invaluable. She kept me energized and focused to create an internet presence that spoke to our clients and not at them. With her insights we have been able to distinguish ourselves from the multitude of other firms.

They need a product that offers a fluid experience and is enjoyable to use.

LET'S DO THIS

When I decided to work with Tish, I was feeling lost with my marketing and the direction of my business. I knew I really needed a change and needed to make something happen yesterday. I am very glad I worked with Tish. I can clearly see the avenues and paths for my business, the people I want to attract, and how it can all work out a lot better. It was hard work that was well worth the time and effort. I appreciated her guidance and input along the way! I look forward to incorporating everything we have worked on, as well as, being sure to really know and interact with those customer profile personas so I can truly attract those people into my business! If you are struggling with how to connect to your clients, who you really want them to be, or how to effectively and efficiently market yourself and your business Tish is your woman! She won't pull any punches, and I believe that is exactly what makes her so great at what she does.

MEET TISH

A little bit about me, and why I do this stuff

Ever since I was little, I have loved exceptional design. My room was plastered with posters of Ferraris and Lamborghinis, I participated (and won) logo design contests in school, and dreamed of becoming an architect. My strengths in math & science lead me to seek a degree in civil engineering, but design called me back to finishing my education in Graphic Arts. Following in the footsteps of the family business, I applied my skills to print design. While I was working in the printing industry, I watched many epic failures of customers doing their own marketing, and decided I needed to do something about the lack of common sense customer experience and small business. So I started my own Brand Experience Design business in 2015, using my skills in web, print and common sense to help small business evoke awesome instead of awful.
