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.”

• 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;

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.”

Rick Callaway:

“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:

“I had the opportunity to hire Joanne for my business’s video (currently on my homepage for your viewing pleasure – just search “10+ Visual Branding BH Tech Connection” – and she was amazing to work with! She asked so many detailed questions throughout the process that I felt like I learned more about my business than she did. I’m overwhelmingly pleased with the results of the video, as it’s also helped me to refine my messaging on other materials, from my website to my business cards. If you want QUALITY scripting and video done, look no further than 10+ Visual Branding.”

Kathy Bate:

“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.”

Julia Holian Career Coach | Executive Coach | Leadership Trainer | Career Strategist | Job Search Strategist:

“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.”

Dean Searles:

“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.”

Jeff Willis Owner of ProFit Custom Embroidery & Promotional Items:

“I worked with Joanne to establish a brand for my business. Joanne has been amazing! She listened to me as I described my business. We went through many options to determine the final product. She made me look at my business in a whole other light. I was focusing on the outputs of embroidery instead of the reasons clients need embroidery. One of the principle outputs from the process is a three minute video for my website, pfbiz.com. This was a fun experience. Standing in front of a camera is something I had never done. She made me feel at ease and incorporated my brand, equipment, employee and embroidered products in the video.  She also developed my website which is a professional site and will have all the necessary web optimization.”

Phil Toudic attorney in business litigation for 22 years:

“Highly recommend Joanne Tan Visual Branding, for content marketing on line. Joanne Tan produced a promotional video for me, starting with messaging consulting, script/copy writing, by summarizing over 20 years of my extensive professional business litigation experience. She is extremely intelligent, creative, and delights in helping others. She also directed, and voice-coached me to be my best on camera, for social media and website marketing, which created powerful business identity and online presence.”

Neil Sullivan Owner, Better Nutrition Simplified:

“Joanne brainstormed with me, pin-pointed and defined what’s unique about my business, and wrote a ‘Big Bang’ script with personal stories. She made it succinct, personable, captivating and engaging. She was also skillful in drawing passion into my video narration, so I sounded and looked genuine and convincing on camera.”

Rick Morgin Franchise Consultant, FranNet:

“The difference Joanne made to my speech was night and day. She targeted the audience and asked the right questions. She coached me on how to speak and act in front of a camera, by marking the script with symbols for emphases, pauses, and facial expressions, then she asked me to ignore the script and be myself while recording. My improved video performance also helped with in-person presentation w/ potential clients. I am planning a sequel!”
