  • Shane Rielly: The Unmistakable Power Of Branding

    WordCamp Johannesburg 2019Speaker: Shane Rielly

    December 24, 2019 — I’d love to share on brand building and the importance of understanding how, and why, to approach branding for any business. I think it is super valuable for business owners (and freelancers) to have a holistic understanding of what branding really is, what it encompasses, why they should pay credence to it, and how they can go about doing that.

    If I was to outline the talk with a blurb it would be something like this:

    “When we think of branding we almost always immediately think of the visual representation of a brand. The logo, the typography, the stationery. Obviously, the visual representation is a major part of it but a brand is so much more than what can be seen. It is essential to understand the importance and power of what branding does for a business and why you should care about yours a lot more than you probably do.

    No matter what sector you’re in or what audience you are trying to reach, your branding matters. And not just a little bit.

    In this presentation, you’ll find out what branding is and why it impacts everything you do in business.”

  • Shane Rielly: Escape the feast and famine cycle and increase your recurring revenue.

    WordCamp Johannesburg 2018Speaker: Shane Rielly

    April 9, 2019 — Many freelancers and design agencies are well aware of the feast and famine cycle that exists. Finding new work is a challenge but it is a constant requirement for generating income in your business. When there is no new work there is no income and cash flow becomes a massive challenge.
    The antidote is to generate recurring revenue, preferably on a monthly basis. In this talk I will cover some ways to increase MRR (Monthly Recurring Revenue) and how it benefits you and your clients.
