Owning and operating a small business is a daunting journey, and while a CEO or founder needs to wear many hats – it is impossible to wear all of them at once.
Trust me, I have tried. In the early days of our company, I was working 16 hours a day, doing sales, web design, development, marketing, photography, and running the business behind the scenes. Don’t get me wrong, when you first start out, that is often the only choice – but as your company grows the best solution is to find someone you can trust to bring with you throughout the journey.
Entrusting a large portion of your business to someone else can be hard...
If you find the right team that understands your message and shares your values – take the risk.
Working with the Black Diamond Elk Ranch (BDER) has been an enlightening process. Steve Koeckhoven (Owner & Operator) at the BDER had a clear mission, to help educate people about the life cycle of elk and create a modernized Elk Shop that could run on an easy to use e-commerce platform.
Steve tried multiple freelance web developers and different platforms such as Shopify and Squarespace, none of which were able to truly bring his vision to life. Until he met Innovate Media Canada.
We helped Steve build exactly what he had dreamed, a website that acts as a foundation for a growing business that can educate the public, while helping market his elk meat and other unique products. We captured footage and photographs to produce original content, and most importantly – we helped tell his story.
Using the B-roll from our time working with Steve out on the ranch, we put together a montage of footage that helped tell the story of the Black Diamond Elk Ranch. Seeing the footage, Steve insisted that we use it for our own purposes, along with a voiceover testimonial to show off to our future prospects.
Here is what we got...
