Congratulations Sam Hall of Print and Web Design

It was my pleasure to award the DBFY Star Award to Sam Hall of Print and Web Design. A worthy winner because he is a supportive active member in our Exclusive community. He produces marketing material for DBFY and other members who are always highly impressed with his work. You can look him up on our directory if you are after any design work or need a new website you won’t be disappointed xx

Known to many as “Slick Sam”, because of his “Slick” artwork.  Sam produces the DBFY online and offline marketing material, as well as many of the members, and he never fails to deliver, often impressing us with his out of the box thinking.

How did you get your idea or concept for the business?

My business was born from a passion for creative design. Online promotion of DIY print and web design applications has seen a meteoric rise in the world of generic media, meaning company’s have little or no brand identity and integrity.  I wanted to offer a service to small to medium sized businesses, that allowed all of their creative requirements including branding, print and web design to be executed under one roof with one point of contact. This would allow even new start-ups to have an original and consistent brand across all platforms.

How do you advertise your business?

Over the past 18 months, I have trailed many different forms of advertising and I believe this is the only real way to find out what works for you. As every business is different, the same forms of advertising won’t work for everyone.

Personally I have found that networking has been the strongest and most lucrative means of advertising and growing my company, producing quality and repeat business. I also supplement brand awareness through the use of social media advertising.

How do you find inspiration/motivation?

I’m a huge advocate of personal development and especially the power of positive thinking. I think that we attract more of what we think about, so whenever I lack motivation I just realign myself with that idea. Positivity breeds positivity!

What’s your favourite quote?

You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. This quote helps me every time I feel unmotivated, and I think this is something everybody should recognise in life as well as in business. Just take the word “no” out of your vocabulary and take the shot!

If you had one piece of advice to someone just starting out, what would it be?

Don’t Give Up! Running a business is a constant flow of ups and downs. Whenever you feel like quitting just remember why you started in the first place and don’t lose sight of your vision. A huge factor for me in not giving up has been getting support from fellow business owners in the DBFY group. This arena full of like minded people is a breeding ground for success.

How has being a member of DBFY helped you this year? and what does it mean to you to win the DBFY STAR award?

Winning the DBFY Star award for me has been about being recognised for my hard work and progress within the group. It’s awesome to think that people appreciate the contributions I offer and value my efforts. A huge positive.

Congratulations Sam, It has been a pleasure working with you, you never cease to amaze me.
