Robin93325 got their new other business or advertising by running a design contest:
Help Robin Hardman Communications with a "tip sheet template"
Check out Robin93325's Other business or advertising contest…
I write copy for companies--mostly internal materials such as benefits information and articles for employee newsletters--but I also specialize in helping companies complete applications for "best place to work" competitions, like the Working Mother 100 Best Companies to Work For. My clients tend to be medium-size to huge corporations, although I also do some non-profit work.
What's your vision?
To promote my services, I've written a tip sheet for companies about how to write a good "best place to work" submission. I plan to offer it (as a downloadable PDF ) as part of an email and website based marketing campaign, and hope it will be first of a number of tip sheets I make available in this way. I'd like to have a basic template designed that I can use for these tips sheets, dropping in the different text myself as I create them. I admit I'm not sure how this will work technically, and am open to ideas. I'm picturing a document you create that will function as a kind of elaborate letterhead, into which I can drop text from Word and then save whole thing as a PDF. But I'd want the design to include specs for the Word part of the text: font, size, color, etc. Here's what the template needs to include: - my logo, company name, phone number, email and website address. also, if not too crowded, I have a separate blog address I'd like to include: robinhardman.wordpress.com. - possibly my "snail mail" address, too, although this may not be essential. - my tagline, "You can't win if you can't tell your story." (Might sometimes change this to "You can't get on the list if you can't tell your story") - room (and specs) for up to 1000 words of text that I can plug in. (I've attached a draft of the first Tip Sheet. Your design should include this text as a sample so I can see what finished product will look like but, again, I'd like it to be set up so I can incorporate these Tip Sheets myself as I write them.) - Note I realize this is a lot of text and it probably means a 2-3 page "tip sheet," which is fine. Some thoughts on style/layout: - I will almost always write tip sheets in terms of lists, e.g., Ten Things you Can do to...bla bla bla" or "Five Ways to Yadda Yadda Yadda" -- so you definitely want to think in terms of a bulleted list and you might want to consider some creative use of numerals. - I will also always have a prominent "call to action"--basically, I'll always have some text suggesting the reader call me for help on their project, and providing contact info (this will probably be a repeat of contact info already on the basic "stationery"--in other words, my email address and phone will be part of the text I plug in as well as on the page I plug it into, unless you think this doesn't work visually---I'm willing to entertain all thoughts and ideas). This call to action could be at the end of the text, but since we're talking more than a page maybe it needs to be a box somehow on every page? Again, your ideas/thoughts welcome. - My audience is corporate, stylistically/culturally conservative, but I provide a personal service (I do very customized, one-on-one work) so I'd like this took a little original-- I get so sick of really slick, boring corporate stuff. I'm looking for something classy, professional-looking, but also a little hip and creative.
- I've attached business cards to show you a little what my look is like now, although you are completely free to diverge from that (if I like it, maybe I'll give you my business cards to redesign next). Business cards also have most contact info listed above to include in design. Finally, business cards have my "flat" logo--this is my original logo someone designed for me years ago, which I rather like, and I like the fact it has options for color (I sometimes change the color of the little balls)--but it is not a jpeg, as you'll see. She designed it in word, so a little awkward to use. - I've also attached newer version of logo that a friend did for me. It has drop-shadow, and is jpeg. I also rather like this, but wish it had color. I currently use BOTH versions of the logo, so you can use whichever version you think works best with your design, or even play very slightly with logo design, as long as it is clearly recognizable as same logo. - Also attached is nearly-finished draft of first Tip Sheet. Let me know if you have any questions!
