FOUNDATIONS

+ Understanding who your ideal customer is will help you create content and a marketing strategy that speaks directly to that person. Remember, if you're talking  to everyone, you're talking to no one.

+ Your brand messaging is how you help people quickly understand your offers and why you're different than everyone else. Time to nail it!

+ Your online presence matters more than ever before, we'll show you the key areas to set up (or clean up) so people can find you and buy from you 🥳

+ My email marketing platform of choice and why it's critical to set this up no matter where you are at in your business ‼️

+ Your content is what CONNECTS buyers to you. Today's consumer wants to feel connected to brands they buy from so stock photos, only product shots, and Canva graphics won't cut it. We'll show you what will move the needle.
