My Client Meeting Etiquette and Note Taking

By Corey Jeppesen | 05/26/17

One of my favorite things I get to do in my role here at Seejepp are client meetings. I love the interaction, the relationship and the collective brainstorming that happens with clients. 

Meeting notes are essential. I never fully trust my memory to capture and retain a great idea, client input or instruction, so I will always write it down. Most of the time, I purposely leave my laptop at the office and come equipped only with my pen and notebook. I feel a laptop can subconsciously create a barrier between you and the client. It's important to me that the client always feels that they have my attention. A notebook is also unobtrusive, open and communicates to your client that you are care enough to write it down.

My Week At Seejepp

By Mason Lopez | 03/16/17

Seejepp, a company that prides itself being relational instead of transactional. Looking to provide a professional, minimal, and elegant package of products and services coupled with exceptional customer service.

This is the company that I found myself shadowing at for a week.

I found myself here for a couple of reasons. I recently finished my Bachelor Degree through ASU, so it was time to take on the next challenge. Seejepp was a possibility because I happen to know Corey through friendship and working with his wife during my time with Starbucks. What helped mold this idea into a reality was the philosophy that drives Seejepp daily. The philosophy is simply, Seejepp is the tool to a fulfilled future, not a J.O.B. For Corey, it isn’t about the money, it is about finding fulfillment with each project, through every client, in every moment. Finding joy through bringing a smile to the face of each person, learning what drives them to success, and coming alongside them rather than directing them. What drew me to want to work with Corey is his drive to be the answer to the client’s need before they realize that it exists.

Being proactive rather than reactive.

That is what successful companies strive to be, and that is what Seejepp has always been in my opinion. It wasn’t hard for me to see this during my internship with the company this week. If anything, it solidified my belief in the passion, drive, and motivation the team has for the success of this company. This isn’t your typical web design company, they are building something special here.

During my time here, I began to learn the marketing side of Seejepp. I could bore you with all the abbreviations and details that go into successful Search Engine Optimization (SEO) work, or at least the ideas that I know, but I’ll spare you from the details. What is important is that it all came from encouraging hearts. At Seejepp clients aren’t a project, they are people. Seejepp will take the time to encourage you, teach you, and guide you. They live out the old saying “there is no I in team”. This type of mentality is what guides them in their partnership with clients. 

As my week of shadowing on the job comes to an end, I am honored to be able to say this is only the beginning. I am grateful to be someone that is being brought on to help keep achieving success. I know Seejepp is a good fit because of what I not only witness but experience this week. I am confident that I will become an extension of the vision, that Seejepp prides itself on being. After a week in the life at Seejepp, I know that Coeur d’Alene has a bright future with Seejepp in the community, continuing to help build up the businesses that give them the opportunity. 

Brand Execution: What's In A Logo?

By Corey Jeppesen | 01/15/17

If you haven’t heard the news, the San Diego Chargers have recently become the Los Angeles Chargers. And with the move North, comes an entire rebranding of the team, including...a new logo. Or so they thought. The Chargers released their new logo on January 14, 2017, and the internet wanted none of it. There was so much backlash against the new design that now, only two days after its release, the Chargers have retracted the design and returned to their previous insignia.

Fans and haters alike declared that the logo was too similar to the Dodger’s. While it’s hard to deny the creativity (or the tenacity) of the internet, it’s important to ask if the hate is merited. Was this new logo actually lacking luster, or were we just seeing people’s natural aversion to change? (Like how we used to freak out every time Facebook made the slightest alteration to our News Feed. Fortunately, we survived.)

Or perhaps fans (like many business owners) are expecting a logo to do something that is outside the scope of its job description.
