E-Mail Marketing- Inexpensive and Effective

January 8, 2016 No Comments dennisw Branding, Multi Media, Web

It is the beginning of the year and many businesses are determined to find new and effective ways to market that won’t strap them for cash. Some will turn to ads in newspapers or on the different web platforms, while others will look to more print products such as post cards and flyers. If we take a step back and think about what most people’s daily routines are, we can find a very inexpensive way to market our businesses. Most people wake up, take a shower, eat breakfast (if they are lucky), and do the next task as if it

#ShopSmall isn’t just about retail

November 24, 2015 No Comments dennisw Branding , , , , ,

The first Small Business Saturday took place on Nov 27, 2010 and launched a new phenomenon immediately following Thanksgiving.

Going into it’s 4th official year (recognized by U.S. Senate in 2011) many eager consumer go out to visit their local shops and continue the purchasing mayhem that is prior to the Holiday gift giving season.

You Never Know Who Your Next Client Will Be

As some may know, the idea of AJ Studios came after I married my husband. Yes, I did tons of wedding stationery afterwards, but I also found my new calling with business marketing.

Most couples have their wedding, thank their vendors, then really never see them again. Richard and I

Nothing Like a Video Shoot

I am the last person who wants to see myself on tv or a video, but I have had so many clients tell me that once they meet me and see the passion I have for their wedding and/or business they have complete confidence in leaving their ideas in my hands. For this reason, and also a great opportunity, I agreed to be featured on the Lifestyles TV Show. Not only did the amazing staff pull together a great interview, but they made it so easy for me to forget the cameras where rolling and just talk about the love

Why I Work The Day After Christmas And New Years.

January 1, 2015 No Comments dennisw Holiday

Many people say to me “You own your own business, can’t you just take off?” This question doesn’t just apply to the days that I work after the holidays, but any time during the year really. After 3 amazing years my answer is still the same. “I love what I do and I did not start my own business to just pass my time.” Each and everyone of my clients are very important to me and I am always putting their needs first. I make sure their deadlines are always met and I am always in constant contact with them.

I say, without both you are making your job that much harder. Visuals are all around us every day and we each see them completely different. The challenge that both photographers and graphic designers face every time they go to work is how to engage the viewer and make them WANT to look for just ONE second longer.

So Many Entrepreneurs

July 14, 2014 No Comments dennisw Branding, Graphic Design

Many of you may know that starting your own business can be scary and exciting all at once. I think for me, starting my own business was always in my genes. For many years I worked for my Father and watched and learned as he cultivated his company. When it was my time to shine, I had the loving backing of my family and the great business sense from my advisor, my dad. Now is the time for yet another one of us in the family to shine. That would be my amazing little brother, Matt! Not only am I
