General FAQs

What is marketing?

Marketing is the process of defining and streamlining your services, then researching, promoting and selling those products or services to a determined target market. Effective marketing is ongoing. Because the market and your target audience is forever changing, testing and research need to be done continually. If you’re not evaluating your numbers and marketing strategy several times a month, consider doing so because your competitors are.

Why does my business need marketing?

In order to experience steady growth, think of marketing as a monthly investment instead of an occasional task. Instead of just hiring a graphic designer to tackle miscellaneous projects a couple times a year, you’ll experience more growth and success working with Odd Marketing and Designs year round. We work with businesses to establish their cost per customer, their return on investment for each marketing strategy and build a wealth of data to inform future marketing decisions for your business. Because we work with many different businesses, our clients get the benefit of the knowledge that we derive from all of our work, as well as our continued education and combined expertise.

When you work with our experienced team, we uncover new opportunities, create long term strategies, marketing plans and goal calendars, and build traction for your business!

How long does it take to see the results of my marketing efforts?

Because marketing is an ongoing process and not a magic trick, seeing results can take some times. With online and digital marketing, we look for results in no less than two months. Getting started with marketing is an uphill battle, especially if your competitors are already aggressively marketing themselves, but the sooner you get started the better.

It is possible that you’ll see results sooner than two months, but the impact will vary by industry, budget and individual business. If you’re looking to great continued growth for your business, expect to commit to an extended relationship with your marketing professional so you can be guided in the best, most productive and most sustainable direction.

What is the difference between a company logo and branding?

Your logo is just one piece of your brand. Your logo is an important part of your brand as the primary visual representation of your company, but there are many other parts that make up your brand. Engaging branding ties together every element of your company to make a deeper connection with your customers.

Do I really need a custom logo?

Yes! Your company’s logo is a prospective customer’s first impression of your brand, so it’s important to stand out and be true to your company’s unique identity.

Graphic Design FAQs

What does a graphic designer do that I can't?

At Odd, our graphic designers do more than draw up pretty pictures or fiddle in Photoshop. Graphic designers are generally creative people by nature, but Odd’s founding partners, Audra and Martha, both received Bachelor’s degrees and have years of experience working with the design principles across different mediums, for many clients and on tons of projects.

A complete understanding of the graphic design principles is really what sets Odd designers apart from business owners using Canva or Photoshop. This understanding allows us to transmit required messages and values of your brand visually to your customers through the use of color, typography, space, balance, form and lines.

Our designers are also cross trained in the realms of marketing, web design and business development, allowing us to see how the design that we’re creating will integrate with your larger plan for your business. Working with designers that understands these other parts of your business also helps you to cut costs by paying one individual or organization instead of having one group for marketing, one for design and paying for communication between the two.

Why should I hire a designer instead of using free tools like Canva?

You can get more professional results in less time by hiring Odd Marketing and Designs to handle your graphic design. Since we’re trained graphic designers, we can use our specialized skills to your advantage while you focus on using your skills to help your business. Whether that’s straightening smiles, handling inventory or making pizzas, we want you to get the best return on your time!

How much does a website cost?

Website costs vary based on the number of pages, content, whether content is provided by the client or written by us, design, project timeline, custom development and add-ons (like shopping carts and e-commerce).

The best way to get an accurate price for your website is to set up free consultation with a project manager and discuss the needs and functionality of your website. If you’re working with a website design and development professional, you should expect the base fee to start out somewhere around $3,500 and increase based on your additional needs.

What is a landing page?

Landing pages are where customers end up after clicking a post or ad. They’re extensions of your promotion and enable customers to take the action on your advertisement such as ordering a product or filling out a form. A motivating landing page can be the difference between a potential customer going to a competitor or becoming a customer!
