Episode 112 – How to Up-Level Your Offerings with Sarah Erickson

How to Up-Level Your Offerings with Sarah Erickson on the Brand Strategy Podcast | b is for bonnie design #brandstrategy #podcast

Friend I’m so excited to welcome you to today’s episode of the Brand Strategy Podcast. I’m chatting with my sweet friend and Heartfelt Brand Society alumni, Sarah Erickson, on how to up-level your offerings.

Sarah is a graphic designer in love with typographic elements and refined details. She creates custom brands and website designs for creative entrepreneurs, crafted with strategy and intention. Sarah can usually be found in her home studio, nestled among a dozen plants with her nose in a sketchbook… and a cup of tea (or glass of wine) forever within reach.

Now, I’ve had the honor to walk alongside Sarah over the last six-months through my signature group coaching and mastermind experience, the Heartfelt Brand Society.

And over the last six months I’ve seen Sarah navigate a big pivot not only in her business, but I’ve seen her continually up-level her offerings, consistently book clients at her highest price point and generally invite them into an elevated level of service and experience time and time again.

So I couldn’t think of a better person to have on the show to share her journey, her own experience and how she made this happen.

My name is Bonnie – I’m a brand designer, strategist, and writer which all adds up to one eclectic conglomeration of qualities that enables me to serve you well! Past clients have dubbed me "the Joanna Gaines of brand design," and I've had more than a few call me a dream maker, a game changer, and a design wizard (my Harry Potter-loving heart didn't hate that one, let me tell you!). At the end of the day, I'm a big-hearted creative who will get teary-eyed as you share the heart behind your business; who will lose sleep over the perfect font pairings and color selections to bring your brand to life visually; and who will work tirelessly to empower, encourage, and equip you to share your work with the world intentionally.
