“BSM is hands down the best online course I have ever purchased. While other courses left me thinking, “Did I just get duped?”, Sandra’s course left me thinking, “Did I just win the lottery?! The knowledge I gained from BSM has changed the way I approach my work. Before taking BSM, I had been continually burned by creative courses that over-promised and under-delivered, courses that were filled with fluff content, and courses that raved about their private Facebook groups only to be greeted by tumbleweeds and crickets. I was lost creatively, but upon entering BSM, I was blown away by how content rich it was! I personally counted (nerd alert!), and there are 8 hours and 35 seconds of video content within BSM! In movie math, Sandra made us a trilogy of visual branding and styling content! Bring Sandra alongside your business by investing in BSM. You can’t afford not to! I have a year of clients now from three images!”
“Shortly before BSM I was looking to pivot in my business from wedding stationery to branding. I knew that I needed to upgrade my visuals to speak to an audience that needed branding services. I decided to enrol in BSM because I was ready to shift my brand and also was interested in applying a creative director role to my design services. This course is phenomenal for anyone looking to polish their brand or understand how creative direction ties into branding. As a brand designer, I was able to use the material to elevate my portfolio in order to attract the type of clients that I really wanted to work with. Since taking the course, I have incorporated creative direction into my services which allows me to charge more. Additionally, since upgrading my portfolio I have landed my highest paying client! I have the confidence and courage to apply my skillset to brands that are looking for more than just a logo, but a story and true visual identity!”
Before enrolling in BSM I struggled relating the heart of my brand, my why to my brand imagery. There was a disconnect between my brand story and the images I was producing and I felt stuck. I craved a road map and actionable steps to produce the images that would attract my dream clients. TVBS helped me create a game plan for my branding shoot that took inspiration from my creative why and applied it in a tangible way. The results blew me away and left me hungry for more!
I continue to refer to BSM regularly and consider the principles as I shoot flat lays of my work or during the design and production phase of new products. I have a completely fresh perspective on styling. I now know what elements need to be present in order to create cohesive and consistent brand imagery. I am also able pull elements from my client’s stories and weave them into my custom designs and collaborations. There are so many ways to apply inspiration without being completely literal. This shift in perspective couldn’t have occurred without the content in BSM and Sandra’s wise, calming presence!
When I first started my business, I found myself mostly imitating what others were doing so all I had were a mix bag of images that did nothing for my brand. It was difficult enough for me to put my work out on instagram, it was even harder to get noticed. I didn't know what to do until I miraculously came across Sandra's free video series, then BSM and I learned so much! Now I’m able to style my own stationery, photograph it, and put it out there proudly! And since then, I've been a part of several styled shoots because my images, my work is finally getting noticed.
I’ve only been in business for 10 months, but I've had 80% increase in enquiries from brides whose style is close to mine, as well as an increase in following in just a few months. Thank you for the amazing course, Sandra!
BSM is hands down one of the best investments I’ve made since starting my business. In just 3 months of implementing Sandra’s blueprint, I created my first shoot and NAILED IT - it’s being featured on one of my favourite fine art wedding blogs! Now whenever I’m thinking about creating images, I refer back to the visual strategy principles I learnt from Sandra and always pull out her templates - INVALUABLE! Everything that I’ve learnt from Sandra has now become second nature and it’s amazing!
I signed up for BSM prior to the launch of my fine jewellery brand, Jureve and all of Sandra’s teachings on designing shoots, concepting moodboards, the practical aspects of working with a photographer and not focusing on the final product were priceless!
BSM is one of the best decisions I could have made for the business! It not only really helped to elevate the brand but the BSM community that Sandra built has been invaluable. I have met so many other like-minded creatives who we have not only partnered up with on projects but also continue to support and cheer each other on! All of this would not have been possible without Sandra and BSM. I cannot recommend Sandra and BSM enough!
When I first came across BSM, I had just discovered my niche business vision and style, but had no idea how to visually communicate them to my audience. My social media photos were all over the place and doing nothing for my products. Initially, I was apprehensive about purchasing the course and considered a "do it someday" thing, but I'm so glad I decided to sign up. BSM enabled me to launch my website with elevated on brand photos that I styled and created myself and not just generic "pretty photos". And the new followers I get on social media are people who are actually interested in my work! Thanks so much Sandra for TVBS!
My life has totally changed now that I have these amazing brand images seen through Sandra’s eyes. I used to feel bad about charging for my work and seriously thought no-one would want to pay the kind of prices that I wanted to charge because I had nothing to show for it. But working with Sandra has been a total game changer. I feel like I became professional overnight! Not only have I gone up a level and elevated my brand.
When I first started my business, I didn’t have a huge portfolio and I knew people wouldn’t take me seriously unless I had good images that really told the story of my brand. Sandra was able to use her personal brand of magic by taking my raw ideas and creating imagery that showed my audience that I was legit and that my business was legit. I’ve already made back my 4 figure investment in my images (and then some!).
Sandra’s brilliance shines through in each and every thoughtful touch she adds to every project she works on. As a creative director she has honed her skills of colour choice and usage, mood creation, and tonality. But, her biggest gift is her ability to dive into her clients vision and dreams and bring them each to life. Truly, a talent. I adore everything she does!
“Sandra has an eye like no other, rivalled only by her organisational skills and passion for all that she does. Working closely with her through the years, I have seen her continue to invest in her own skills, and refine her offering to become what it is today - creative direction that is thoughtfully aligned with each brand, consideration of the individual behind the business, and an easy going nature that will make you feel at ease from the get go. Trust me you are in good hands!”
With Sandra, I was able to create the most beautiful images that represented my brand completely and they have allowed me to raise my prices by 30%. I now feel so confident in myself and business and never question whether my work is good enough anymore. I know that booking me is worth it for my clients and that is absolutely priceless.
