Elle Jay Inc. offer services and support for creative professionals and entrepreneurs:
Musicians – I want to support you so you have time to rehearse, record, collaborate and create new material for all of us to enjoy. I appreciate that you travel, work odd hours in different time zones and often use your smartphone on the go! We’ll develop a plan that maximizes your promotion, builds your brand and fits your budget. I also work with Talent Management Teams to strengthen their online skills and can help them with a strategy to support and work in alignment with the artists they manage. I work with event promoters who may need additional support to expand their reach before, during and even after an event.
Recent work includes a new website for Paul Taylor, booking and promotion work with Jef Kearns and social media support with Rob Tardik.
Creative Professionals – It’s no secret that I love pretty things, like jewelry. I support my clients in whatever way I can and in this case it means wearing gorgeous necklaces and bracelets by Lovebeads by Janet Planet aka Janet Morrison Minto. Her inspirations are as wide-ranging as the necklaces. Always at deepest heart a writer, her descriptive musings on each necklace, detailing her inspiration for each one and a detailed list of the various elements used have become almost as popular among devotees of her work as the necklaces themselves.
It’s a true honour to work with a Master of Photographic Arts, John Mitchell of John Mitchell Photography. Like the great masters in any field, John continues to expand his knowledge and experience, never satisfied to rest on past achievements. He studies the mannerisms of subjects before picking up a camera, studiously paints with light, and prints his own work. It’s just what you’d expect from an engaging storyteller and brilliant artist, who, by the way, also happens to be a photographer. Last year, we wrote the copy and developed his new website in order to showcase his talent.
Entrepreneurs – I’ve had the pleasure of working with Brett McBurney of McBurney Landscapes – a hip urban landscaping business in my community. Brett McBurney was inspired by his customers to develop a new generation of landscaping design services to match his client’s lifestyle. He creates a custom plan for each property that is cost-effective, sustainable and low-maintenance with “wow” curb appeal. Last year we created a marketing plan, wrote copy, developed his brand new website and designed a new logo. I work with him regularly to assist with promotions and to build marketing/social media collateral. Stay tuned for an interview with him in my blog.
I met Brett Bossenberry of Bossenberry Piano while volunteering in the greenroom at a local Jazzfest. He had been hired to ensure the piano was tuned for Russell Ferrante of the Yellowjackets and all the other artists during the festival. Almost a year ago, we got to work on the very first website. We created a Musical Heritage page to capture all four generations of pianos tuners in this business, established in 1898. This project involved research, copywriting, website development a logo design. Brett also teaches guitar and plays in several bands.
Robin Bender of Mega Health at Work has trained over 1,000 people with an innovative workshop “Mental Health First Aid”. Whenever I can, I immerse myself what my clients do, so I attended the workshop as well. She also offers training and support to First Responders. I’m proud to work with her to get the word out to end the stigma of mental illness and to promote her valuable workshops. Earlier this year we wrote copy and designed a new website. I also attended a national conference she was speaking at and provided on-site social media support.
