Small Business Spotlight of the Week Bethany | October 30th, 2009

Fete

This week’s small business is a full service event production company. They provide meeting planning services for special events, corporate functions, galas, weddings (hint, hint Pete), corporate meetings and seminars. Not only can this company plan your next event, but they can cater it and offer your corporation concierge service as well. I know what you’re thinking, “Bethany, this sounds like a HUGE company, not a small business.” Well, my friend, you are wrong. This powerhouse events company is run by two people out of Canada and has been in business for about two years. They are now in need of a logo design that will be used to help brand their company.

We recently asked business partners Rosie and Anthony some questions about their business and needs and here’s what they had to say:

1. Before crowdSPRING, what method did you use for creative service work?

We relied very much on our own creative abilities in writing and photography and resources in the printing/marketing/advertising/design industries, but mainly, all our creative work was designed and implemented by us – the principles of the company.

2. What made you decide to use crowdSPRING?

We felt that our current logo did not accurately represent the different entities of the company and wanted to have help from some of the best creative designers to re-create our logo so that it is a better reflection of our company as a whole.

3. What is your small business bible? As in, what is a must-read every day for all small business owners and employees?

In the events industry, “Biz Bash” magazine publication is a must-read, every quarter. Also, constant sourcing using Internet and special events directories is imperative in this business in order to remain competitive and to generate creative ideas.

4. If your best friend told you they wanted to start a business and asked for your best piece of advice, what would it be?

Believe in your product or service above all other products or services of similar nature. Believe that no one can do what you do better than you can – and make it your mission to prove it!
