For Patient Advocates

As a patient advocate your focus should be on telling your story but in this “business” there are a lot of other things that creep in that also feel important. Fancy business cards. Social media sites that are updated regularly with professional looking graphics. Blogging a million times each month. I know that you do all of this unpaid and out of the goodness of your heart, so I’d like to help you out a little bit. I think creating a brand for yourself is one of the most important ways that you can bring instant credibility to what you’re doing. Having just a few branded pieces in your arsenal gets you past all the skeptics and into the spotlight for those that need to see you!

Business Card Design

Many people think business cards are a thing of that past, but I think it depends on what circles you run in. At healthcare conferences and patient-driven events, a business card is a little piece of gold that you can hand out to everyone. Sure, you can just have them follow you on Twitter, but will they remember who you are? Give them your card and then later they can look at all your sites and get to you know a little better.

How I’ll Help
Don’t have a card? We’ll work together to create one specifically for you! I prefer to make business cards double-sided and in full color so you get the most space to share important information. I’ll also help you pick a printer to keep your cards affordable to print.

Social Media Hero Image Design

You’re probably all over social media but do all your channels look cohesive? Are you keeping up with the every-changing sizes of hero images? To create an exceptional brand you want all those hero images to look and feel similarly so that way someone knows from a quick glance that these are your channels.

How I’ll Help
Let me know what channels you have and how many images you’ll need and we can come up with a great package to make your channels all work together.

Patient Advocate Website Setup

I truly believe blogging saved my life and that by connecting with other patients across the globe, I have been able to give back in a way that would never have been possible without my blog. If you’re thinking about starting a blog, but you’re overwhelmed with how to actually get one set up, let’s talk. Technology should never get in the way of you sharing your story.

I think blogging is so important, that I’ll help you create your site for a fraction of what I charge to create websites for small businesses. I’d love to help you get started.

  • Basic Blog
  • Intermediate Blog
  • Advanced Blog
Together we’ll create a site with the following:

  • Three pages
    • About
    • Your Blog
    • Contact
  • A custom URL
  • A WordPress.com site that you can update yourself

You can get a hosting plan through WordPress for $4/month and this will include a custom domain.

How I’ll Help
I can help walk you through the process of buying your domain and setting up your account on WordPress.com. Once we’ve secured your domain and hosting plan, I will help you create the custom graphics you’ll need and teach you how to create the pages you’ll need on your blog.

How I’ll Help
I’ll help you upgrade to a privately hosted blog, and to set up a new site that gives you a little more control without overwhelming you.

Together we will build three pages
