Marketing Mentor offers guidance, accountability, practical strategies and inspiring ideas for creative professionals who are serious about growing their business.
Our mission is to provide the tools and assistance you need to get your ideal clients, so you can take your business to the next level and ultimately create the work/life balance that works for you.
We do that through one-on-one business mentoring and coaching or email mentoring (just send a question and we'll tell you what's involved in answering it) or through our actual marketing services.
Here's what typical clients say before they work with Marketing Mentor:
I wish I had better clients who wanted more of me.
I've been in business a while but all the work has come through word-of-mouth. I've never had to market before. But things have slowed down and now I have to do something. But I'm not sure what to do.
We need better clients with bigger budgets who value our services and I don't know where to find them or which marketing tools to use.
I have plenty of work -- that's not the problem. I need to put some systems in place to be more efficient if I am going to grow the right way.
I need someone to complain to about having too much work, because it is a poblem, even if it's a "good" problem to have.
We're too busy but I don't know if we're charging enough. The business is running me. Something's got to change!
We need a toolkit of marketing pieces, the language to describe what we offer our clients, a plan for finding and contacting the best prospects.
I need someone to bounce ideas off of to make sure what I"m doing to grow my business makes sense! I need an objective perspective and a second pair of eyes on my proposals and other marketing materials -- somone who's not my husband!
We're too busy to do our own marketing but we have to practive what we preach. We have an email newsletter but haven't sent one out in months. Can you help?
I'm trying to build a list of prospects. However, I'm having a lot of difficulty narrowing down an audience to focus on, and would love your help with some strategies I can employ to get this rolling!
I need a plan to get my website and all business related things pointed in a new direction. I am REALLY busy with work, but I think I could be working less (and making more money) in specializing and becoming an expert
I'm just striking out on my own as a freelancer. I want to get started on the right foot, but I'm not even sure how to get my name out there, or where I should be marketing myself.
I need help with confidence, overcoming shyness, creating a solid marketing and career plan as a web designer. I'd also like to improve my client relationship and project management skills.
I ultimately would like to freelance full-time, but I don't think I'm quite ready for it. I would like some guidance for getting myself positioned to do that in a year or two.
