A Day in the Life on the Left Coast

At Left Coast Marketing & Design we have five core values we hold very close to us. These values are something every member of the team upholds, making sure we get the work done and have fun doing it. We believe these to be very important aspects of our business model ensuring our work is efficient and effective.

1. Customer Service is our #1 Service

2. Project Management is in our DNA

3. Love What You Do

4. Love Who You Work With

5. Work + Life = Balance

Whether we’re working on a design project, strategizing a digital marketing plan, or in the studio for a product shoot, we always make sure to keep our values in mind. It’s rare you find work which includes client visits in one of the most beautiful places in the world, Sonoma County and Napa Valley wine country. Below, we’ll show you a behind the scenes look at Life on the Left Coast and the madness to all our methods.

 

1. Customer Service Is Our #1 Service - Our clients are our #1 priority. We make sure to do all we can on our end to satisfy the needs of those we with whom we are doing business - having a plan, staying organized, and keeping a clear line of communication really strengthens the relationships we have developed through the years. Product photoshoots, for example, can be hectic at times, but always come together with an organized plan. We have our photo studio separate from the office, and if desired, we even go in to the clients’ studio space to get the job done! After the shoot, come all the edits - quite a timely process, but staying organized is what gets us through to a successful outcome.

2. Project Management Is In Our DNA - Design is one part of the creative services we offer, whether you need a logo refreshed, a brand revitalized, or innovative print material completed for your company, we got you covered. Our project manager, Jon Strachan, keeps his head fully wrapped around all of the projects coming down the pipeline to ensure efficiency and successful completion of projects on time and in budget. With more than 50 open projects at any given time, it is important for everyone on the team to understand and apply the importance of project management. Once we have full control over the projects at hand, we are then able to take our creative powers and put them to use. We work as a collaborative team and love to have brainstorming sessions to let all creative perspectives run free!

3. Love What You Do - One of our favorite tasks here at Left Coast are client visits! This means going out in the field and reaching each and every client. This point of contact means so much to us; we try and go as often as possible - after all, customer service is our #1 service! We love helping develop and execute innovative plans for our clients in their digital marketing and design efforts, making sure they have everything they need to carry on their business with a strong and consistent web presence and print materials.

4. Love Who You Work With - The team at Left Coast Marketing & Design is small but mighty. With less than 15 people on the team, we have a strong group of creatives putting their minds together to bring Sonoma County and Napa Valley closer and closer to achieving their marketing and design goals. There is nothing better than team lunches, jokes at the office (thanks to Jon and Dan), and client team outings! We can’t wait to see the team grow and the business thrive!

5. Work + Life = Balance - Mixing work with pleasure is an unstated rule here. We give our team the freedom to get their work done in their most productive place. Out by the pool, in the home office, or even working vacation-style from places like Tahoe and Cabo! It just makes Life on the Left Coast that much sweeter! We all have our sanctuaries and favorite spots and we are so lucky we are not cooped up in a cubical all day long!

 

Is your business in need of a great team to help elevate your brand with Digital Marketing or Design?

We're looking forward to hearing from YOU!

Client Spotlight: Jessup Cellars

Jessup Cellars is a four family owned winery nestled in the beautiful Yountville region of Napa, California. Founded in 1996, they stay true to their mission to create and share life-enriching experiences for their members and guests, while also giving back to their community through the support of the arts. 

Growing in some of Napa’s finest vineyards, Jessup Cellars produces small-lot wines, hand crafted and available exclusively at their tasting room, through their wine club and online. For the owners and team of the winery, they make an effort to create a vibrant community that shares their passion of wine and the arts, while appreciating the amazing Napa lifestyle that surrounds them!

Jessup Cellars has been one of our amazing Clients for the past 2 months now and we are incredibly lucky to work with them! We have recently been working to rebuild their website as well as create their email templates all with the intention of driving traffic, raising conversion rates for both visitors and wine club members, and continue to raise awareness on the web for their brand.

WEB WEB WEB

A website is the "look and feel" to any company. It is where your Clients, Prospects and Former Clients come to see what makes you unique in this world. Organization, visuals, and navigation are among the many aspects of a website that in whole creates a brand personality that one can recognize in just a few clicks. At Left Coast Marketing, we have expanded our creative services and are offering Web Design because we feel it is important for every business or company to build their web presence and back it up with great visual design.  

Tony Immordino, our web guru, has worked with many of our current Clients and new Clients to rebuild their websites from either the ground up or improve upon what they originally had. Tony has the eye for design and the brains behind the tedious technology we call Web Design. 

Some websites that we have worked on include: Oestermann Wines, RJV Wines, Guerrero Fernandez, Akrasia Cellars, Corley Family Monticello Vineyards, development for Mia's Kitchen, and Prime Solum!

We are also excited to announce that Healdsburg Taproom & 5 Bridges Winery websites will be launching soon. 

"When looking at these projects as a collective whole, the thing that stands out the most to me is the wide breadth of design styles, platforms, and client types we have been working with.  Each website is unique in it's own right, and carefully tailored to each client's needs.  Some are large scale winery operations, others are small boutique wineries and family run businesses, and there is everything in-between.  

Also rather than sticking to our "platform of choice" as an agency, we have been able to shift and work between various platforms depending on the clients needs and budget.  Covering websites in the world of Wordpress and Squarespace, and now branching out into the larger framework of Vin65 software.  This is great because each website is totally unique from the first kickoff meeting to launch day, nothing "cookie cutter" about it.  Each one tells a different story, and has a different goal." -Tony, Web Developer & Designer
