Learn More About Our Process
Our Chief Creative Officer, or CCO, created a culture which extends to the staff and our clients. More importantly, it forms an individualistic relationship between our project designer and our client. To understand how we work as a media production agency, we asked our content writers to explain our process to the world.
STAGE I: RESEARCH
Through a thorough initial consultation handled either in person or over video chat, we will understand your brand and the manpower fueling it. More often than not, the simple discussion of your brand will bring forth new ideas through mutual brainstorming. This is an interesting element which every project coordinator has encountered multiple times before. Once we know the specifics of your target demographic, your scalability, any niches you wish to market to, for example, we can move forward to investigate the market itself. It’s crucial we understand your current positioning relative to your market and the tactics and processes of your competitors. Our team uses proprietary software, which provides insight on those exact elements.

One critical element we capture and convey in development to your audience.
Understanding your niches, demographics and scalability from day one.
More than a pin on a map, it's your market position.
STAGE II: DESIGN
One thing our designers have learned, it’s that design class doesn’t teach them anything useful. Principles like applying the skills within trial and error, completing a project and starting back to square one makes for the best designers. It’s the process where the design work comes alive. One piece that makes Life Improvement Media valuable are the several pairs of graphic eyes on the same concept. It’s collaboration, criticism, critique and in some cases, flat out discussion that makes our team of designers who they are. Everything from the initial intake of your ideas and your brand is considered for the finalized design proofs.
Every point mentioned in the consultation comes into play to create your concept(s).
Depending on the project, we start with either our keyboards or the whiteboards.
All designers on deck give their honest, unbiased opinions to the room for approval.
Steps 1-3 are repeated to provide our client several design ideas.
STAGE III: PRESENTATION
Our designers aim to please clients with several ideas as opposed to one uncompromised creation. Multiple designs let you, the client, see and understand our process. This mutually-beneficial stage is your chance to voice your opinions fully. In turn, your critique tells us whether we need to reevaluate the concept or move forward with last minute edits. Once we are complete, we present you with a polished work of art. We deliver this approach for your approval.
We bring forth multiple proofs to narrow down your best concept.
Your chance to share your honest thoughts whether negative or positive.
If necessary, your critique will guide us to a new direction for changes.

After you’ve selected your creative direction, we officially launch the project, Helium and all. Depending on the project, we allow a certain amount of time to pass before evaluation the project. Usually, 30 to 90 days elapse, during which time we prepare reports on client usage alongside SEO reporting and analytics. A/B testing--experimenting with the best practices for user interaction and experience--plays a role as well. During this phase, we discuss the various ongoing monthly maintenance options and what we call a “re-analysis” of the project. We examine if what we built for you works to the best of its ability. If by chance, it does not, our team reconvenes to determine how to improve upon its current state. Lastly, it is during this final fourth stage where we use the same software to run a secondary report and compare you to your competition.

Over the past few months, my traffic has skyrocketed. Considering my website is fairly new, I'm seeing some really good traction. Erik and his team are very knowledgeable and helpful. They helped me design a very professional website; they're investing time and effort into my SEO and writing articles. Simply put, they are a one-stop shop. They help small businesses get off the ground as well as established companies who want to take their business to the next level. I love this company and all they do!Mladenko Mike Karac
Erik is a master marketer and in touch with today's cutting edge media market. Having created Life Improvement Radio well before it was considered "mainstream" shows he is ahead of the curve in what is coming next, and knows how to get your message out there to the masses. As a business man I trust his advice and look forward to long years collaborating with him on all future projects together...MIke Trzinski
Erik Remmel brings qualities to the table that entire marketing teams in “Corporate America” cannot collectively offer on their best day. Erik’s style is fresh, clean, crisp, professional and consistent and I love it.

Life Improvement Media Group is a great company and provides awesome customer service.Bob Bruner
Erik did an amazing job creating Life Improvement Radio. In an era when the major media is focused on negative things, he has built a outlet for broadcasting only positive information to improve people's lives. As a guest on their entrepreneur show and social media show, I have seen first-hand how dedicated Erik's team is to motivating, uplifting and educating people to be their "better selves." I highly recommend partnering with Erik.Dan Sherman
Erik will help you grow your business from the ground to the top . You one stop shop for all your media needs!Chuck Bryant
I've been a host on Life Improvement Radio for several months now and couldn’t be happier. Erik and the whole crew are professional, community minded and incredibly helpful. I have zero radio experience and they’re incredibly patient and always have valuable tips for me that make my program better. The show itself is a great way to promote my literary arts organization, Wordier Than Thou, and while showcasing the area’s burgeoning literary scene. I highly recommend working with Life Improvement Media Group.Tiffany Razzano
Amazing company, really puts your dreams into a reality. The insight and experience these guys have is exactly what I needed to get the word out about my company, and they even made sure it was within my budget. I'm contacting Facebook right now, trying to get them to add a sixth star, because they really deserve it.Victor Dell
