Ready to stop sending potential clients to a website that doesn’t represent the business you’ve worked so hard to build?

You only have one shot at making a first impression. You have .05 seconds to capture your customers’ attention before they go to the next result on their google search. If your website is outdated, slow, or not mobile-ready, you are losing sales to your competition (who likely has a better website). It’s time to spruce up your brand and website and convert your dream clients.

 

I’m Steph, the Owner and Creative Director behind Southern Creative. After partnering with business owners in multiple industries, I started seeing the same problems pop up over and over again. Business owners launching their brand spanking new websites only to still be lacking in overall marketing strategy, over their heads in tech overwhelm, and websites getting lost in the black hole of google.

 

Cue Southern Creative — launched with the mission of supporting business owners, like you, truly stand out online, ditch tech overwhelm, overcome digital marketing gaps, and well in short; bring WordPress Websites back with a new level of sophistication.

 

I crafted a strategic system to help you find your brand’s secret sauce, design the perfect visuals to match, and then share it with the world on a stellar website.

You are an entrepreneur who is building your business, perfecting your service and product, and also creating your brand, but what exactly is a brand? You will find thousands and thousands of definitions.  If you went to college for business and took marketing you know it’s cemented in your head that the brand is the logo, symbol, design, and beautifully cohesive Instagram feed. This simple concept from the past has evolved – a brand is not just what you present to your ideal customers and clients in how you want them to perceive your brand it is also your ideal market’s experience of YOU! The gold mine of your success is when your brand is aligned with how your customers experience your brand.   It is vital that everything in your business is consistent and precise – everything should be crystal clear. Unfortunately, when it comes to meeting your clients, your big photoshoot for your business, or being interviewed or featured in a magazine – you realize your clothes do not align with your brand and you have nothing to wear, resulting in a mini meltdown. A missing piece for entrepreneurs and small business owners is their clothes! They want their brand to be fresh, fun, and innovative but in their photos they are wearing a black blazer with pearl earrings – talk about unalignment in your branding. 

Serena is a style brand expert who helps women entrepreneurs, creatives, and professionals align their personal style with their brand. Serena is a certified personal stylist who is passionate about supporting women by defining and aligning their personal style to elevate their brand.

If you’re like most business owners, you understand the importance of good bookkeeping and the crucial role that it plays in making sure that your business is being run as efficiently as possible, but you probably don’t get excited about devoting more than 45 seconds of time and energy to the bookkeeping effort.

We’re here to make it easy.

With 16 years of bookkeeping experience, Abbi Tenaglia is prepared to help you as little or as much as you need. If you just need a little bit of guidance and coaching, she can do that. Or if you need someone to completely manage the process for you so that you don’t have to think about it at all, she can do that too.

In addition to QuickBooks, she’s also well-versed in PayPal, Square, 17 Hats, Amazon seller back office, Stripe, E-giving and LulaRoe back office.

 

Bookkeeping Services:
– QuickBooks set up, training and ongoing support
– Bank and credit card reconciliation monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly
– Sales tax management & reporting
– Payroll services and tax management
– Nonprofit start-up registration with state and federal entities, tax filings, and donor reporting
– Year-end management and reporting, including 1099 e-filing
– Accounts payable and accounts receivable management, weekly or monthly
– Notary services

CPA Liaison Service:
Bookkeeping hourly rates are typically much less than hourly rates for a CPA. For this reason, clients often find it beneficial to engage Abbi to do most of the legwork for their tax preparation at the end of the year, then hire a CPA for an hour to check over the documents and e-file the tax return. This proves to be much more cost effective for the business owner than paying a CPA for several hours of work, and much more efficient than hiring an employee to manage the books all year. It’s a way to cut costs without taking on huge headaches.

Non-Profit Consulting Service:
There are so many needs in our community, and many community members have some fascinating ideas for addressing these needs. But it’s important for nonprofits to know the laws and to ensure proper management of the funds entrusted to them by donors. Abbi started and ran her own nonprofit for seven years before eventually merging with a larger organization. She’s been hired as a consultant by several nonprofits to share her knowledge in the realm of nonprofit management.

OUR STORY

As a freelance website designer and developer, I developed TWTH Consulting with the goal to add a custom touch to each project I work on. I am a hard worker and trustworthy partner for your online presence and bring an edge of creativity & enthusiasm that will set your site apart from your competitors.

OUR APPROACH

I like to first sit down with a company to learn more about their business and how it operates. I find that usually a project may extend beyond the need for just a website but perhaps for tools to also help streamline processes behind the scenes for the business. By taking the time to get to know you and your business better, I am best able to develop a site and tools for you with the thoughts of how the business will grow in the future in mind to make expanding your site easier as the company grows.

I have experience working remotely with clients all over the country and here locally in the Triangle. If you are looking for a website designer, please contact me today. I would love the opportunity to work with you on your project.
