What can I expect during my free consultation?
Your consultation is highly dependent upon you and what you are looking for.

How much does it cost for a website?
Websites have many components – purchasing a domain, deciding a webhost and builder and are very
subjective to the client’s needs. A representative will meet with you to determine where you are starting, how involved you would like to be, and an estimate on the number of working hours needed to complete your site. Most sites fall within 5-10 working hours to design.
How much does it cost for you to handle my social media?
We several social media management plans based on the needs of our current clients. Most clients prefer to have us fully manage their pages while some prefer to post themselves. Full management plans start at $300/month and include sales strategies with recurring payments.
What does “focus on organic growth” mean?
We focus on building your social media following organically first to ensure quality over quantity. Our goal is to have your social media working to build an audience before paying for sponsored or boosted ads.
Do I need to sign a contract?
No! We ask for a signed business agreement that states the work to be completed and the agreed upon cost of the project rather than engaging in long term contracts.
Do I need to be on Instagram/LinkedIn/Facebook/Twitter…?
With so many social media platforms available, it’s easy to become overwhelmed. We recommend starting with one and have it working well before adding in others and start where your target audience is! There’s no need to spread yourself thin while trying to figure out how to use a network that doesn’t reach your audience. Ask one of our professionals which social media platform will be best for your business and why.
What do you mean by no outdated “sales” tactics?
No one likes to be sold to, but you need sales to run your business! There’s a saying, “facts tell but stories sell.” By incorporating the 80/20 rule, we focus on branding and getting your story out there first before asking anyone to buy. Our focus is to build quality campaigns based on what is needed rather than short term success, so you see long term growth!
What do your sales campaigns include?
Believe it or not, there’s a reason why box stores put out holiday items months in advance. We will help you leverage your goods and services against that of larger companies, so you can be competitive without losing your edge.
