9 of the Best Visual Tools you can use…

I’ve been spring cleaning this site, as it’s evolved into Artists Adventures, but I don’t want to take this site down as there’s some useful content and great interviews on it (if I say so myself!). I came across this list, and although it’s a few year’s old, these links and examples still hold true. Now there’s a testament to authenticity ! I hope you find it useful…

VISUAL TOOLS FOR IMPROVING YOUR OWN PRODUCTIVITY

VISUAL TOOLS YOU CAN USE WITH YOUR CLIENTS

  • 2.1 Find Your Great Work Maps: Find Your Great Work you can download the whole book, full of exercises, explanations and great suggestions for only $14.95.
  • 2.2 Visualisations: Google: ‘guided meditations’, plus Wendi Friesen, hypnotherapist, has some very powerful sessions available on her site.
  • 2.3 Coaching Cards: Hay House – there are about 80 different decks available.

VISUAL TOOLS FOR MARKETING YOUR BUSINESS

 

  • 3.2 The Visual Web:
  • Headshots: Google: ‘headshot photographers’ or ‘portrait photographers’ check their portfolio to make sure you like their style.
  • Photographs: Getty Images, iStockPhoto or find a local photography course to improve your own shots.
  • Branding: Google: ‘branding designers’ or ‘branding consultants’ or when you see branding you like, ask who designed it
    Branding example: Fiona Harrold not necessarily that exciting (sorry Fiona) but then it’s not meant to be – it’s reassuring, clear and consistent, reflecting perfectly the image the coaching company wants its clients to ‘get’.

Also, consider helping those who are just starting out in their field – commission a fresh-out-of-college Flash animator, or website designer, photographer, filmmaker, or graphic wizz to help you create your materials. They’ll appreciate the opportunity and it may be the start of a great alliance…

  • Slideshow example: Slideshare
  • Video To Camera example: Wendi Friesen Wendy is a great presenter and shows how powerful a single-shot piece to camera can be.
  • Flash Animation example: The Great Work Movie – inspiring – watch it!!
  • How To Video example: HowCast, Videojug step-by-step video how-tos, even on coaching topics.
  • Web TV Channel example: Wendi Friesen on BlipTV and she’s got her own radio station too!! A true professional!

 

  • 3.3 Pecha Kucha: Wiki with links to examples and a full explanation.
