I help sustainable small businesses & holistic practitioners make their voices heard, thoughtfully crafting them a compelling web presence.
Niching Contest Participant Comments:
10/10: YES! I work with Holistic Entrepreneurs and Coaches and THIS is a great niche, especially the way you say it. A lot of holistic practitioners NEED a web developer to thoughtfully craft them a compelling web presence. I think instead of having their voices heard, maybe it can be having their ideas come to life or having their ideas shared? Because when I first read “make their voices heard” I assumed you were a copywriter.
9/10: I stumbled at “thoughtfully”. I would say something like “by thoughtfully crafting their compelling web presence”.
Good for you–high praise from Tad. I vaguely thought “web presence” meant social media & such. Or maybe you were trying to make it vague to include a variety of things? “Crafting them a compelling web presence” seems a little jargon-y to me. Good luck!
9/10: Great picture I get a feel for you from it and I like thoughtfully crafting a web presence. I would like someone to be thoughtful and crafting if they were working for me.
9/10: The improvement I see is in, make their voices heard. How about replacing it with …practitioners succeed by thoughtfully…
8/10: You are a web designer or copywriter, but your audience is quite broad. Holistic practitioners who want all their business practices to align with their vision sounds narrower to me.
9/10: I think this is really good and clear that you are a web designer and who you help. The only thing I am wondering about is “make their voices heard”, maybe because I don’t associate voices with a website. I think more about things like getting my message out there or standing out from the crowd. I’m curious if you’ve interviewed your ideal clients and what words they use to describe what they want?
I love this picture. It really seems to suit both your niches. You have an earthy look with the jean jacket and country dress for the sustainable crowd but a nice gemmy pendant that hints at new age/holistic practitioners and your smile is beautiful. I was a little confused at first but then I read web presence and I assumed it meant you create web sites.
9/10: Very clear audience. I had to think about it a bit to realize you’re a web designer. I like the voices part.
10/10: This is excellent. If you add “by” between “heard” and “thoughtfully” I give it a 10. I notice that your website mentions not-for-profits and not holistic practitioners so if holistic practitioners are a focus for you then you might want to align your website to match – perhaps this is a work in progress. I like the play on words of “heard” on your homepage – makes you memorable. Lovely picture. I like “make voices heard” – empowering. Wishing you all the best.
10/10: Made total sense to me. Awesome!
7/10: What is it you do? Web design? I give it a 7
9/10: can’t think what would make it a 10 though. I love the strong but gentle movement in the word ‘compelling’. Brilliant word crafting. x ps your pic is fab, love seeing who I’d be working with.
8/10: In reading this, I thought you were a copywriter, but in reading the comments I think you’re a web designer. Do you do both?
9/10: only because it’s not completely clear if you create the web presence, or teach people how to do it themselves.
10/10: Very clear and once I have some extra money, I will be contacting you for some web design. I took a look at your website and really loved it. Sounds like you’ve got what I’m looking for! Great job!
10/10: I agree, this is a 10.
Sara Law’s Reflections:
Thanks, Tad! Yes, I help my clients by creating websites to get their voices heard, but very good point. This is a great challenge!
