How do you feel about the new google icons?

I get what they're going for:
- Brand consistency
- 1 design language
- Bright and colorful

That said, I feel that they made some major mistakes.
- It's really hard to differentiate their different products.
- The icons seem void of personality
- In some instances, they simply don't make sense. For example, the new Docs icon just looks like a poorly designed rectangle... not a document.

What are your thoughts? Do you like them?

πŸ€” Selling Services vs. Selling Value πŸ€”

πŸ€” Selling Services vs. Selling Value πŸ€”

‼️ Spoiler Alert: Selling value is better.

I've been thinking a lot about this lately.

**I’ll use my business as an example:**

I can say that I provide:
- Branding
- Websites
- Podcasts
- SEO
- Digital Marketing
- ...

OR, I can sell:
- Business growth
- Clarity of vision
- An audience
- More leads
- More sales.

What's better?

Obviously it’s better to sell value.

There are millions of website designers in the world. If I simply sell websites, my potential clients could literally go anywhere else and receive the same service. Selling value on the other hand lets them know what transformation you can create in their life. It’s much harder for competitors to compete on that.

PS: My LinkedIn headline will be changing soon. I don't think "JMH Media. ⭐️ Creating Brands | πŸ–₯ Websites | πŸŽ™ Podcasts | ✍🏻 Content | πŸ”₯ Digital Marketing" fits my new vision.
