Joanne has been helping me to define why, what and who I want to be, bringing clarity and definition in developing my business brand. Joanne has helped me “get real” with what I want my business to be, how I want it to be portrayed to the public, and the message I want to deliver. She is exceptional at the ground floor engagement of marketing tactics for growing my business with specific actions, not just rah rah rah. I am looking forward to have her teams creating my brand promotional video, messaging, visuals, and website. Thank you Joanne!

“First of all, being an ex-cop, I’m pretty skeptical by nature. But then when someone says they’re an “expert”, I’m even more suspicious. Enter Joanne Tan. Joanne was recommended to me by a business owner that I trust. He raved about what she did for his brand and website. I ended up hiring Joanne and her team. It was the single best marketing decision I’ve ever made. Seeing is believing, so if you want validation, check out my website to see her work. Thanks Joanne for your tireless work.”
Gary Potts, Principal & Consulting CFO, ProMentor CFO, LLC
“Joanne did a wonderful job in helping me create and launch my new venture with a great brand message. She is one of a kind! In addition to her skills as a highly intuitive branding expert, she can get to the core of a business and articulate the perfect message in just the right words. In addition, she is a top-notch photographer and video producer. Starting from the logo and video, she helped conceive, create and deliver the brand messaging and content. She and her team designed my website as well. The value of Joanne’s services is extremely unique and I highly recommend her.”
Rolf Neuweiler, Founder & Principal Consultant of a2z CFO, LLC:
“Joanne with 10+ did a fantastic job in launching and establishing my firm’s social media and web presences. 10+ is a full service, multimedia branding agency, with initial focus on branding content and brand-promotional videos. With multidisciplinary skills and talents, Joanne and her team made sure to market my unique brand powerfully, authentically, uniformly and artistically.
Joanne made my venture into social media go smoothly and seamlessly. Joanne and her team created and implemented the following for the a2z CFO brand:
• brand-messaging content;
• branding and new firm announcement videos;
• branded website: content, design, photos, visuals, structure;
• tagline “Keep your ship on course;”
• logo and business card design;
• business name: a2z CFO LLC; and
• branding portrait for my website, LinkedIn, and social media profiles.
Joanne also saved me significant costs related printing services and will continue to provide a2zCFO with updated social media content and a monthly branded blog.”
“The whole process of working with Joanne gave me such confidence that I wrote 3 new pieces of business, while completing brainstorming and brand-honing work with Joanne.
Joanne is a great mix of left and right brain. She works with the right brain and digs deeply into your values and business operations. Then she uses her artistry to create a brand for you. What started as a multipage questionnaire got boiled down to a one page script. The video, website and headshots all bring out your essence in a unified brand.
Joanne believes in and sees the best in her clients. She and her teams not only produces my brand messaging content, video, photo, website, she also features my branding video and content on her business website, and refers potential business partners and prospects to me. I recommend her and her teams highly to all business owners who have visions, who know the extraordinary value in brand-marketing.”
Brady Helkenn, Founder & CEO, BH Tech Connection:
“Joanne Tan did a wonderful job guiding me through the intricacies of producing a branding video for my interior design business. She was able to condense my 40 years of experience down into a 1 page script and then matched video and still photography to that script resulting in a beautifully produced business tool. She experty collaborates with her technical support team to add quality content to a masterful end product. I am looking forward to increasing my business with this video and future blogs. Thanks to Joanne I am stepping into new areas of marketing I never dreamed of.”

“Joanne was a great help when I needed to update my professional photo on my website and LinkedIn. She understood my audience and how to capture the essence of who I am. She’s also become a trusted advisor for branding and imagining, as she has a lot of ideas and is selfless about offering her knowledge and expertise. I’m very happy with the picture we selected (it was hard to pick just one!) and will continue to use Joanne as my personal photographer and videographer.”
Benjamin Dierauf Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Doctor for 23 + years, Lafayette, CA:
“Joanne Tan is a force of nature! Feisty, highly intelligent, and deliberative, she brought to the table a unique set of experiences in business, marketing, law, and art with a passion for finding, defining and expressing my unique branding for my Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine practice in Lafayette and San Ramon. She then translated this into the development of a script and screenplay, a process that endured 7 or so revisions, each time sharpening, clarifying, and simplifying my branding message and enhancing the appeal for my demographic market. I’m quite pleased with the final video, and it will use it preeminently for my website (benjamindieraufdotcom), facebook, and google+ business pages. It captures a well-crafted professional, artistic, and marketable image that accurately portrays my business and personal brand. I’ve also used Joanne for updating my professional branding headshot. Her many awards for her photography are well-deserved, and I also plan to work with Joanne in the future to revamp and update my website and cyber presence.”
“Joanne helped me create a new profile image for my social media profiles. She is professional, patient, a good listener and an excellent advisor. She approaches her work from a holistic perspective including photography, videos, scripting, visual identity and branding. I’m very happy with the results and look forward to working together on future projects.”
