Marketing a small business can be deflating

  • You spend countless hours doing everything you're supposed to be doing. And still get barely any results.

  • You've got a really great product or service, but no matter what you say, people don't seem to "get it."

  • It's overwhelming figuring out which "must-do" marketing tactics make sense for your business.

  • The daily demands of running a business leave you with little time to do, much less think about, marketing.

  • It doesn't have to be that way.

    This is the marketing help I've been dreaming of!!

    I've spent (wasted) a lot of money and time with marketing consultants and on marketing trainings. Then I started working with Mike Schuster. He was not pushy and did NOT try to sell me a cookie-cutter approach. Instead, he took the time to get to know me, my dreams, my challenges, my personality, my business. He helped me choose specific marketing strategies that fit into my style, which was so different than the overwhelming and generic firehose approach I had experienced with others. Mike also reignited my excitement and enthusiasm for my business by helping me reconnect with the true value of what I had to offer. By helping me see through the noise and clutter, he made me optimistic that I could grow my business and have fun doing it. This is the marketing help I've been dreaming of!!

    Where I had chaos, Mike brought clarity

    When I came to work with Mike I felt my coaching and speaking sides of my business lacked congruency of messaging and at times targeted different audiences. I wanted to align them with one clear message and create a workable way to help each aspect of my business support the other - speaking bringing in clients and clients bringing in speaking opportunities. Mike exceeded my expectations! Where I had chaos, Mike brought clarity. He helped me find the threads that tied them (speaking and coaching) all together and a strong marketing message that not only represents the core of what I do but is easy for others to grasp and act on.

    You deserve a marketing strategy that leads to sustainable growth

    1. Let's chat about your needs

    We'll spend about an hour. Talk about what's going on. Bat around some options. And then give you some next steps to consider based on your needs, timeline and budget.

    2. Develop a plan tailored to you

    We'll evaluate efforts to determine what's working and not working. Map out what influences results the most. And provide context on where to focus in the short, near and long term.

    3. Move toward goals with confidence

    We can work with you or bring in a team and do the work for you. Either way, you'll have someone by your side to help pivot as needed, plus celebrate success along the way.

    Mike spent many hours learning about me and my business before even recommending a course of action

    Starting up a business and running a business encourages spending time doing so. Working with Mike to outsource the needs we had for Marketing was a pleasure. Mike spent many hours learning about me and my business before even recommending a course of action. Once that perfect course of action was decided it was as though I didn't have to worry about it again. I'd recommend Mike to businesses looking to decrease the amount of time they spend on one of their most valuable assets ... marketing, and have complete trust it will be the right way. I really consider Mike one of our teammates.
