Coaching and Consultations

Get What You Need to Succeed Online

​​Running a small business requires expertise in many different areas, and online marketing is foremost among them. The internet is abundant with opportunities, but it’s constantly changing, and most strategies worth pursuing involve a learning curve.

I offer a variety of coaching and consultation services for small businesses and independent professionals who want to successfully navigate online marketing, all of which are fully tailored to my clients’ goals and skill levels.

What do you need to know?

Are you looking for advice about your website? Do you need ideas for creating fresh marketing content? Want to know which online marketing strategies would be best for your business?

Instead of wading through mountains of articles about how to present your business on the internet, you can work directly with someone who’s got the experience to provide you with the information you need and the know-how to point you in the right direction.

Whether you have questions you want answered or skills you want to acquire in the arena of websites and online marketing, I can help. 

How it Works

Coaching is usually conducted in weekly sessions via email. However, coaching can be customized to fit your schedule and goals. Hourly consultations are also available.
