Dare to Grow: The Essentials
Is where budding entrepreneurs like you learn to implement the marketing strategies + systems necessary to grow your audience and turn them into paying customers and clients.
Skip collecting courses, scouring the internet for ideas, or creeping on other people's Instagrams to figure out how they're making it happen.
If you're ready for a clear guide for your brand messaging, email list, and social media marketing, with a plan you can actually stick to, then this is the program for you!
Here's the problem...
You’ve bought all the courses, ebooks, and workshops. You've read all the blog posts and listened to all the podcast. And you still don’t feel like you know what you’re doing. (no worries, most biz owners do this)
You know you've got something special that will truly help people, but no matter how many strategies you've tried, it's STLL not really working and you're honestly frustrated.
All the options and decisions are leaving you stuck, stalled, and stressed out. But a 1:1 coach or a fancy group program just isn’t in your budget yet.
The solution: One membership with all the marketing strategies necessary to grow your audience + gain customers or clients.
Our mission is to help solopreneurs like you stop doing all the things and start implementing the essential marketing strategies (even scary ones like video) so all your effort actually grows your business.
This is for you if...
- You’re running a service or digital product business making between 0 and $5k/month
- You’ve been trying to do too many things and know you need to be better at focusing on the most important stuff
- You've been letting fear hold you back and are ready to get out of your own way
- You want a community of women working toward the same things and a coach keeping you accountable
- You're ready to boost your confidence in promoting your stuff and feel good positioning yourself as an authority
So why isn't your marketing working already?
There are too many options for email platforms, social media, content, and you can't figure out which to focus on first.
Time. Time. Time. You really need more of it but you know setting up systems and specific marketing strategies will help.
Showing up on video and putting yourself out there on social media is 'effin scary and you could really use some support and accountability to go all in.
Whatever is keeping you stuck, we’re ready to help you blast through those roadblocks, put the essential marketing strategies in place, and finally feel confident showing up and selling.
Businesses with effective marketing have 4 things in common...
#1 They're focused on one person + one problem
Most business owners try marketing to multiple people and solve multiple problems, which ends up diluting their message. In The Essentials you'll learn how to find a singular focus and a singular solution so YOUR people can spot you in any crowd.
#2 They show up consistently
Rain or shine, businesses with an effective marketing strategy are able to email their list, show up on Instagram, and sell consistently because they have a plan for creating content and a system that caters to their schedule and strengths.
#3 They've set up systems + automation
You don't have to do all the things. Whether it's simplifying the process or completely automating pieces of the puzzle, successful businesses create a marketing plan that is easy to implement and scale so they can use those hours on the stuff that moves the needle.
#4 They have support + accountability
Don't go it alone! Businesses with an effective marketing strategy also have a support system that helps them stick to their plan, reach their goals, and blast through those late night stress sessions. We've all been there and we've got your back!
