I'm MAKING outstanding & affordable design services for PEOPLE who don't want to do it themselves.
I CAN HELP WITH
Websites build trust. That very first impression is crucial to getting a sell and showing authenticity. In the subconscious of everyone we all think, "Can I trust these people?" when we visit a website. So I like to start with something new that grabs their attention and is familiar enough that you don't miss the point. I love to make websites that do new things for that reason, to help you tell your story online in a new way that makes friend with people right off the bat.
Can I edit my site?
You have access to manage the content of your website on your own with the easiest editor available, but if you need a new page or a section added, you'll need to let me know and I'll whip it together pretty quick.
I can take or make designs to fit on most anything. Need something on a can, a billboard, a book, poster or even just a little ol' Instagram post? I can shape your content to fit and communicate your message clearly. You can find a lot of examples in my portfolio.
Check out my images on instagram or look through my portfolio to see what kind of content I put out and if they fit your preference. I have fair and reasonable prices and I get things to you quickly. Faster than most. I also don't mind sharing my secrets to small business owners and people who want to take their photos to the next level without editing them one at a time on complicated software. I make everything simple so I can manage a lot.
What are your prices?
That can be a full-time job itself. I will definitely get you site connect to Google Analytics no problem, but you are responsible for managing it and who better to do that than the person who knows their business better than anyone?
Are analytics necessary?
No. The best analytics come from talking to your customers, but it can help in some other ways. It's not always helpful, but again, I can definitely get you rolling on it.
I wish I did! I'd have fun for days, but if you want a coffee bean drinking coffee, or a skateboarding banana, or a Napoleon Dynamite getting "three feet of air that time" or Mona Lisa sipping her Latte...I can't do that myself.
However I do know some really swell people that can make these things for a fair price, so definitely ask me anyway, so I can point you in the right direction. It never hurts to ask.
I've made a few print shops that run completely on their own with Ecwid & Printful. Ecwid lets you handle the back-end of a store crazy easy and provides an excellent app to help. Printful lets you make mockups with ease and handles all the shipping , paying, and returns. You just tell them how much profit you want on each item and they send it over to Ecwid.
This is a radical option for anyone who wants to sell Merch, but isn't a Merch shop. My dream was to be able to easily make shirts of my designs. Now I can sell them and so can you!
This is the most important part of being a freelancer these days and I love to teach what I know because I spend a lot of time finding the best ways to do things. I never stop. If you want to learn how to do something with Webflow or how to save money on everyday business expenses, I have learned some lessons that I'd be happy to share. Take a look at my musings page to learn lots of life and business tricks. It isn't easy being a small business and every $10 a month adds up fast!
Want to learn Webflow or how I edit my images insanely fast? I have videos for that, but I'll also meet you at 211 Cafe for an excellent cup of joe and to party in person. That's my favorite, because it gives me a chance to learn too. So text me and let me know if you need help with anything.
Oh and why would I charge for that when the internet if full of people doing it for free? I'm not a boring consultant, more like your new homie who's learned from a lot of mistakes and practice. If I don't know something I won't pretend to, but let's have some fun.
I'm game to start a Webflow meet up if you are!

My name is Brad.
Owner, Founder, Does Everything
The purpose of Minim is to offer outstanding creative services for the small businesses that need it to cost less so they can pay the insane rent etc.... I use the profits to make my content better, more affordable and to take care of my super supportive wife and 2 year old little girly-wig at home. The Good Lord is our rock, our peace and our purpose. Everything I make and person I help is a little thank you to Him for the breaths it took to do it and the joy He puts in it. I'm from Rogers, AR, live in Bentonville and work at Downtown Bentonville Inc as their sole designer, photographer, videographer and developer.
I was not a designer, but I was hired to build DBI a site on Wix. I learned design on the job and now I couldn't be happier with my job(s). Sometimes you don't need a degree or even much experience. Just show that you have what it takes to learn humbly. Then fight every dang day to stay humble or you'll lose it all.
Do I have a degree? Yeah I went to some dumb school around here to pick one up for what it's worth, but it's not related to design at all.
NWACC is a fantastic school. that is not the school I'm referring too. Take a class with Valor Pickett and your life will be changed. There ya go kids.
Minim started with my buddy Chad George (a local genius) and I. We worked together at Downtown Bentonville Inc everyday for 3 years. Lately he's found a great job that he loves and fills his creative juices, running all the media and design at New Heights Bentonville. So now it's just me. Do not hesitate to check out what he's doing lately. Like I said, he's a genius. Seriously check it out....did you do it?
Yes we are still friends and I definitely miss seeing him everyday.
