Are you juggling so many hats in your business that you often work IN it and not ON it?
I get it. You know what you should be doing to attract more clients, but you don’t have the time to work on your personal brand or put together a content strategy.
Not to mention, the thought of self-promotion sounds as painful as cattle getting seared with a hot iron (okay, maybe not THAT bad, but definitely not fun).
Self-promotion is hard.
Sure, you know why your ideal clients should hire you. But when you try to “sell” yourself, you suddenly feel the pressure to get it right. You feel awkward and would rather talk about anything else but “what you do.” It’s overwhelming, to say the least.
If your brand message doesn’t feel natural, you’ll struggle every time you talk to a potential client, write a blog, or introduce yourself at a networking event.
Yes, I know you’re busy. But when you put your brand on the backburner, you’re leaving money on the table.
Literally, you’re losing potential income anytime your target market can’t find you on the internet, leaves your website because they can’t figure out what you do, or refers someone else’s business because they forgot about you.
Do any of these sound like you?
- Lack clarity about your elevator pitch and brand positioning?
- Wish your website reflected your personality and expertise?
- Freaked out about the thought of promoting your services on social media?
- Struggle to write and send out consistent emails or blogs (or want to start)?
- In the dark about how to make your business stand out from the crowd?
- Wondering how to get more clients without busting your butt?
It’s Time to Revive (or Build!) Your Brand.
Your ideal clients are waiting to find you, but you have to capture their attention.
Forget about the noise online and the people who look and sound so freak’n perfect.
You, my friend, just have to be yourself, because you have a message and stories to share that will pull at your audience’s heartstrings, make them bang at your door, and hit “pay now” on your invoices. (Without hesitation!)
It seems like everyone is saying the same thing, but that’s not your problem.
Stand out as an industry expert and shatter the mold like an opera singer’s last note (insert sound of breaking glass here).
Work ON your business and let me help you define your authentic brand voice.

Make My Content
The do-it-for-you copywriting solution for busy entrepreneurs who want to implement a content strategy that shows thought leadership, adds value, and generates leads.
Sure, you have the best intentions when it comes to keeping up with your mailing list, blog, and social media, but your time is limited (and so is your brand visibility, yikes). This is where I come in. We’ll work together to connect your content to your brand and business objectives—saving you precious time from staring at a blank computer screen figuring out what the heck to write.
This package is perfect if you want to partner with a writer who can express your thoughts. I’ll get into your head and write engaging content that will have you say “I can’t believe I didn’t write that myself. Girl, you are a queen!” (Okay, maybe you won’t say that EXACTLY, but you get my point.) You’ll walk away with your content calendar for the month, fresh content, and a huge sigh of relief.
Turnaround Time: Typically booked 4 weeks in advance of your ideal start date. (full amount billed monthly)
Now booking for July 2018! Limited monthly spots are available as a retainer package with a 3-month minimum.
How Does The Process Work?
You contact me and we hop on the phone (or Zoom) for a getting to know each other chat. We’ll talk about your needs and how I can help you with a specific package that will solve your problems. This way we can both see if we’re a good fit to collaborate.
Once we’re clear on which package is perfect for you, we’ll talk project timelines and what to expect during the process. If it’s a “hell yeah!” let’s do this, I’ll send over everything you need to hold your spot. You’ll also sign an agreement that outlines the project deets (because surprises are best kept for birthday parties). Once all the formalities are out the way, the branding begins!
Oh yeah! You’ll receive a welcome email with everything you need to schedule your From Dark to Spark strategy session and any pre-work needed to get started. Once you submit your pre-work, I’ll start working on your project. I’m all for open communication so I’m counting on you to be an active participant in the draft review process. This way we tackle any open questions, and you absolutely ADORE the final results.
Signed, sealed, delivered, it’s yours! Once your project is complete, you’ll receive everything you need to hit the ground running with your brand package made just for you. Voilà! It’s time to put your brand voice “out there” with your newfound clarity.
