    William exceeded my expectations. His suggestions enabled the creation of a book cover that gets rave reviews from other authors. He performed work in a timely manner and answered any questions immediately.

    William Mathis even though he is my brother has always taken excellent care of my business web page. Also he done some amazing beautiful colorings to some of my personal art sketchings and really brought them to life.

    I have had several occasions to do business with William over the years. I have found him to be very professional and talented, in his chosen profession.
    He has helped me develop a couple of sites and I recommend him highly.

    It was nice working with William. He took the time to understand what I was looking for, and he kept me well-informed along the way. He always consulted with me for approval. He went beyond what I asked, and even provided me with bonuses. His price is very competitive.Thank you very much.

    Bizarre and unusual experience, the provider did not do what was asked for, spent lots of time discussing issues unrelated to the project and when confronted with the odd behavior canceled the project! Not really sure of the logic and wish that things would have worked out.

    William was incredible. He exceeded my expectations and was very easy to communicate with. I hope to work with him again in the future and will direct anyone I meet who needs a web-designer to him.

    William at I-Media Source was fantastic to work with. From the beginning it was clear that despite a very fair price quote the number one goal was to get a great website up and running no matter what the pricing may have been. I was at first nervous about doing everything via email and phone calls but it proved no problrem, although in the end we could have met in person if needed. I would highly recommend him and plan to use him again= Jim Elfers.

Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. To do their research and don't rush to hire a provider (web designer, graphic designer in this case), because your in a hurry to get your ideas out and done. Always get a second or third opinion. The other issue that I would like to state that it always greatly helps when a customer is well prepared and has a pretty good road map on what they want to accomplish. It prevents unnecessary confusion and delays.

So, if your a customer and you would like to hire me as a provider, please have all your materials, ideas, images, photos, copy, and anything that you have to provide me a good scope of what you require and need.

:)

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. There are some very good questions to ask:
1. Ask about their background and technical skills.
2. How long have they have been doing this kind of work.
3. Are they self-employed or do they work for a company or business.
3. Ask if it is possible to speak to one of your past customers about your work.
4. What kind guarantee clause do you have?
5. What is the estimated time of completion or deadline.
6. If it is a state manditory service that requires a license, ask if they have one.
7. What is the estimated total cost, and if a deposit is required. Even ask if there is an option to break down the payment schedule in accordance to a work schedule. In other words a partial payment is paid when one objective is reached in the work schedule. Then the consumer can review the work, approve, then make the payment. Then the service provider can start work on the next work plan schedule.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. Well, it's not the work itself or the end product. It's really about that my career, whether I had a goal or a sense of direction lead me to a diverse professional consultant. I'm not just a graphic designer and web designer with skillsets for over 10 to 15 years (anyone can teach themselves to learn those skills.), it's that my career background encompasses different industries and a diversified professional background.

I'm very fortunate to learn about running a $15 million division and personnel managment. Worked as a graphic artist in a newspaper company doing paste up and ad designs, while doing freelance in 1994. Then moved on and worked for a commerical real estate company as a marketing assistant / regional graphic designer, then worked for large printing company as a senior graphic designer in the pre-press division ran the digital output division. My career landed me a position with a software company, where I was hired as a consultant to design their collateral material. What led next is that I replaced the VP of Marketing, and took over the role of corporate marketing communication manager. All this while working on the side as a freelance web and graphic designer. That took me to another position as a VP of Marketing for a horticulture company. Then worked as a IT person for a well know telecommuniations company. Decided it was the right time to run my own business know what I learned.

Since 2006, I have the opportunity to assist 60 plus clients, it's really about business relations and client relations. I am so fortunate to work with CEO's, COO's, CTO,s and other senior managment who really depend on me and share their goals on what they want to achieve. I go all out for my clients. Their business I treat and respect it as much as it where my own. Their goals are my goals, their objectives are mine and I implement them.

Creative work can only go so far. It's when you can retain your client and keep having more projects they want you to do, not because you can do it. It's because you built a value for yourself and for your client. It's a no brainer. Diversify your personal skills as well as your own professional skills. You become more value to you clients or customer.
