Get Focused. Get Found. Get Engaged. Get Customers. Get Results.

Are you an artisan or small business owner skilled in your craft but lacking in marketing know-how? You are not alone. And we're here to help.

You know your business, we'll help you grow it! We're the objective experts that can help you quickly create and execute simple, cost-effective campaigns to jumpstart your business.

An investment in growing your business via strategic planning, smart marketing, relationship development, and content-based campaigns will give you the visibility and the results that you deserve. 

Truth is, most of us are experts of our own domains and woefully lacking in other fundamental areas required to succeed in business. In many cases, an outsider's objective perspective helps us even with the things we are experts at. 

Let's start here: 

You have a gift that others want.

Something of unique value to a select audience that, when offered, will make a difference.

Who is that audience? Why do they need you? How do you reach them? How do you get their attention? What can you offer them? What the heck is marketing and how on earth can you do it successfully when there's no time or money ... not to mention skill or interest ... in doing it?

FEAR NOT. There are some very simple things you can do to attract and build your audience. Automated even. And then there are lots of ways to approach growing your business that involve brilliant ideas rather than big bankrolls or tons of time. That's where my expertise comes in. I've been helping emerging businesses, artisans, solopreneurs and organizations create markets, alliances, and results on a shoestring for over 20 years. 

So let's talk. You know your business. I'll help you grow it. Guaranteed!

How it works:

A short conversation will almost always generate inspiration and actionable ideas that you can take straight to the bank. [set up your consultation now and see what I mean! call me at 508.878.5084 to get started. Mention CreativeGround and get your first half hour free]

My outsider's perspective and skilled interviewing results in a clearly defined picture of what you want and don't want (now and in the future). This is incredibly valuable as you consider your options for work, spending, location, staffing, alliances, technology-enabled opportunities and nearly every other business decision that lies ahead.

As coach, consultant, mentor, advisor, or contracted marketing resource ... whatever you need, whenever you need it ... my goal is to be helpful to you and help you grow.

The very first thing I do is help you hone in on what you really want. Today. Three months from now. Three years from now. Thirty years from now.

Then, we talk about what you do, what you love, what you hate, what you have to work with, and what your goals are. The ones you create for your business that dovetail with those you've defined for yourself. 

This becomes the first part of the blueprint for your success ... what you want to do, where you want to go guides every other decision - every investment - you make in your business. Of course these things will change over time, but we have to start focusing to stay on course. The course that gets you where you want to be.

Once you've set your sights on your goal, we'll break it down into manageable chunks and start defining how to achieve results.

Or overcome obstacles. Or capitalize on opportunities.

Want to grow your audience? Get more sales? Establish a cadre of partners who enable you to be part of a bigger solution (this is huge, by the way)? Identify new sources of raw materials, group buying options, higher-margin sales methods that streamline your time and costs or enable you to sustain your "Made in America"? Create programs that connect what you sell with the audiences that know what your offerings are worth ... and are chomping at the bit to buy them?

Develop your bio, brand, messaging, online presence and campaigns to put you where your buyers are and give them the info and ability to take action? 

I connect artisans with the audiences that are likely to admire, acquire and refer their work(s) to others. I ensure that your infrastructure, plans and content work in harmony to attract, engage, and convert strangers to friends, friends to prospects, prospects to customers, and customers to rabid fans and advocates.
