Launching a new business can be daunting — to say the least.
Of all the details that come with starting a new business, marketing is arguably the most important. Marketing launches your business into the public consciousness. How can a business make money if people don’t know it exists?
Many first-time entrepreneurs balk at the amount of time and money marketing requires at the startup phase. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Imagine getting all of the basic marketing materials you need for a new business — a logo, business cards, a flyer design, a few social media graphics, a postcard design, etc. — all in a month’s time and for less than $1000.
It’s possible with Bragg Media’s graphic design programs.
Creating your brand’s first marketing pieces
Solopreneurs, small businesses, midsize businesses and large enterprises might have different operational needs but they have the same upfront creative needs. This includes a logo, business cards, business stationery (letterhead, envelope and notepad), brochure or rack card, social media graphics and more.
For new businesses that need brand identity design, the Advanced Graphic Design package offers a complete brand starter’s kit for $895 — including a non-trademarked logo with all of the necessary files and 9 more projects within a month’s time.
The average small- to medium- sized marketing agency charges $100-$200 per hour. With our graphic design programs, you receive a month’s worth of graphic design projects for what some agencies would charge for a week’s worth of work.
Real estate companies have used our design programs to create new listing slide deck templates, fillable PDF sales sheets, new listing brochure templates and even social media graphics. There are unlimited revisions with a 1-2 business day turnaround.
Other brand starter kit items could include the following:
- A menu design if you’re opening a cafe, restaurant, coffee shop or bar
- An infographic design explaining how your business/services work for new customers
- An infographic design explaining COVID-19 safety protocols — or just general health & safety protocols, depending on your business
- A coupon or gift certificate design
- An e-newsletter graphic or design
- A Google ad design or an ad design for delivery apps
- A brochure design
- A downloadable PDF design to put on your website
- A t-shirt design or any other type of merch design
New businesses are given access to our secure design portal, where they pay their invoice, issue design requests, keep track of design projects and communicate with their project manager. You’re not going to suffer through talking to a robot to get the design you need.
Our process is simple: When you first sign up for the advanced design program, you’ll fill out a brand identity questionnaire, which will ask questions about your new business — from aesthetics to purpose. Then, you’ll meet with your dedicated project manager to go over the details. This ensures everyone is on the same page.
Once you approve your logo, we can get started on your other marketing materials. Login to your design portal, fill out a design request form, and chat with our project manager, who works closely with our designers to ensure you get exactly what you need! Our team works on one project at a time with a 1-2 business day turnaround. And with the unlimited revisions feature, this means we will continue to revise the project until it meets your expectations. No extra costs or hidden fees, guaranteed.

Maintaining your brand’s aesthetic with future marketing materials
Once your new brand has all of the foundational marketing materials in place, what happens if you have future design projects that need brand consistency?
The Baseline Graphic Design subscription for $386 per month offers up to 10 design projects per month with 2-3 business day turnaround and unlimited revisions. As subscriptions go, your credit card is automatically charged every month regardless of whether you initiate a design request or not. That’s why it’s important to have 10-12 projects in your design queue at a time.
You can cancel the design subscription at any time. Avoid a $100 reactivation fee by putting your account on pause for $14.95 per month if you anticipate stretches of time without design needs.
The Baseline subscription offers design for basic marketing materials — including print advertisements, postcards, flyers, posters, social media ads and graphics, menus, brochures, T-shirt designs, etc. If your business already has a logo, the Baseline subscription is an affordable option to accelerate your brand’s marketing materials. If your logo is pixelated and you don’t have the design files, our designer can recreate or make small modifications as needed.
For more complex design projects, such as PowerPoint or Google Slide Deck presentations, animated gifs, multi-page publications or elaborate illustrations, consider the Advanced Graphic Design subscription for $895 per month.
Affordable website design with a process that works for you.
Building your brand beyond the logo
Are you wondering, “Sure, graphic design, sounds great. But how do I get the right customers to buy from my business?” We can help.
Sometimes, you also need a little help figuring out what exactly your brand is. You may know what your business goals are, but you might struggle to communicate with your customers.
If you’re not sure how to communicate your brand’s message to the right audience, our team can create a professional marketing plan for $2,000. This includes a two-hour Strategy Session, where we interview up to three people on your team to discuss everything from business goals to aesthetics and from sales efforts to marketing campaigns and ideas. In the end, you have a document filled with strategies, campaign ideas and more to help you plan for the future.
Do you need all of the above?
