Small Business Marketing Tips and Strategies  

Every business has different challenges. That’s why we work together to meet your needs, like I have for the more than 100 other businesses that have worked with me in my consulting practice.

The ultimate goal is to create a rock-solid marketing and action plan so you don’t have to worry about what to do, when to do it, and how to market your small business. You’ll know where you are, where you’re going, and what your competition is doing. And you’ll have a customized roadmap to follow.

Why Free Marketing Training?

The pandemic has disrupted many of the more than 715,000 small businesses in Massachusetts.

They’ve suffered from Covid protocols, lockdowns, employee absences, supply chain problems, finding and keeping enough workers, and the uncertainty of what virus is right around the corner. Many businesses have been forced to close.

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts knows that without money to spend to turn things around, your business could be next.

That’s why it created the MA Express Grant program.  Last year alone, it awarded $3.5 million in grants to teach businesses skills in a wide variety of areas.  This year, marketing is one of them. Yet most small businesses know little about how to market a business – or marketing on a shoestring budget – because no one has taught them.

If you don’t know what you’re doing, you won’t see results. And you risk lagging farther behind your competitors.

Success Stories

I started working with Robin when one of my locations was seriously struggling. First, we created a marketing plan to generate leads, increase customer retention, and nail social media. Then, I came back a second time, in the middle of Covid. Results? I now have four locations, a growing entrepreneurial community, and steady sales.

Justin Moran

Owner, WorkspaceMA

I worked with Robin to pull together a comprehensive, manageable and winning marketing and PR plan to grow my business and my only regret is not hiring her sooner. Her ideas led to more clients, more revenue and a more targeted and strategic approach to growing my business.

Nancy Medoff

Best-Selling Author, Keynote Speaker, Executive Coach

We hired Robin to help us craft our strategic marketing plan and she took a deep dive into every nook and cranny of our branding, story, and marketing/PR efforts. Robin didn’t only provide analysis, she created a clear road map and detailed action plan that makes it easy to follow. We would enthusiastically recommend her to any company wanting to exponentially improve their marketing results.
