The difference between a business and a BRAND is in how easily it's recognized by its ideal customers. A well thought out brand will help...

  • Make your marketing more effective and save you money in the long run

  • Make it easier for clients to say, "YES! I want that!"

  • Create a system that starts working on its own, with less effort

BECAUSE YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHO THIS IS + THEIR PRICE POINT + THEIR AUDIENCE

How? Branding.

build solid strategy + foundation first

There are a lot of courses out there that tell you the what and how, and shove you out the door with a plan that worked for them, but not for you! So often people get stuck and struggle to implement their expensive course, because they haven't taken the time to do the groundwork yet.

Your marketing is only as effective as the strength of your strategy.

 

Strategy is difficult to create without vision.

communicate

visually + verbally

These days, it's not enough to just have the right words, if no one reads it. It's not enough to just look good if your target audience doesn't identify with it. You need to have the combination of both for strong, effective brand marketing.

a realistic

marketing plan

It can be so overwhelming to know where to start when it comes to marketing online. And the daily upkeep of it often leaves business owners drained and burnt out.

In this group, we'll...

  • Kindergarten Approach It – Ridiculously easy, step by step process to unpack your strategy. I can even sing you a song if you'd like.

  • Answer Very Specific Questions
    in bullet point form that will be the base work for all your content

  • Use my Plug & Play System
    to plot and implement all the goods

make sure you're

monetizing!!

...in the largest font I could fit because it's that important.

 

A lot of the “I made 6 or 7 figures in X amount of time” people got big by selling how to sell. How to sell on Instagram, how to sell passive income, how to build a YouTube, Podcast, Clubhouse following. But often times they skip the most important steps, laying the groundwork for the actual money making side of your whole business. So how can you make their tactics work for your specific business? Together we will focus on creating an actionable plan that is custom fit specifically for you.

 

 

And to make sure you don't get stuck, each person gets...

a complimentary

consultation

for each beta member!

Learning new concepts is hard enough. On top of that, our inner workings sometimes create mental and emotional blocks that cause us to hold ourselves back or make it difficult to step outside our own brains to answer these questions.

To combat that, I've built in one free 1-on-1 consultation for each member so you can get custom advice, specific to you and your business. I want to make sure you're walking away with what you need from this program, and that will differ per person, so let's just chat about it, so we can get you where you want to go.

there will never be the right time.

stop waiting and start doing.

the easiest

form of instruction

via FACEBOOK GROUP

Short, 15 minute videos, 3x a week on Facebook. 

Why? Because I know you're already on your phone. Just hop on to the group, no need to sign into any external websites. Quick listen while you start your day, make your lunch, or drive home for work. Easy!

what to expect

WEEK 01

doing the groundwork

This is where we discuss all the biz basics to make sure we're creating a strategy that works for you. Some biggies will include going over:

  • Pricing & Packages to make the decision to buy easy

  • FEEEEELINGS that your ideal client is dealing with that drives them to buy

  • Key Points to narrow down and repeat so you have a tight messaging system

WEEK 02

basics of branding

I'll teach you the difference between the choices a professional designer makes and the free or affordable template assets from Canva or the like. Things like...

  • Creating a Unique Look that becomes recognizeable

  • Finding a Look That Fits both you and how your audience expects you to look

  • Easy Easy DIY Tips so you're empowered to keep moving forward on your own independently

WEEK 03

break to implement

Because it's a lot to digest, and everyone is balancing regular/work/family life at the same time, we'll take one week off to catch up, answer questions, and get some feedback from each other.

WEEK 04

effective messaging

At the end of the day, content is King. Once you've hooked people with visuals, what you say is what closes the deal, so we'll work on things like...

  • Brand Story (this is the authentic part)

  • Pain Points that keep your ideal client up at night

  • Transformation they hope to see by investing in your product, service, or offering

WEEK 05

pulling it all together

Once you've got all the groundwork done, we'll plop it all into whatever collateral makes most sense for you. In the group we'll go over...

  • A Plug & Play System to plop all the work you just did into a landing page, social media strategy, and more.

  • Marketing Funnels that are simple but effective for you

  • Partnerships + Networking methods to keep it going and growing

WEEK 06

do the thang!

We'll end the program with one last week of implementation. Of course this is optional, but it's one open week of being able to get direct feedback, Q+A, support, and help from the group before we close.

Two Guys

50% off

for friends

Because I know the power in accountability. Because this work is often vulnerable. And because it helps having a friend to bounce things off of. Your friend get 50% off when you join together. And if you really want to sharesies, that makes it only $37.50 each.

 

all the details

Who


You! + ME + a Friend maybe? (*wink* 😉) Up to you, but I highly recommend inviting a friend for accountability. (Plus it's more fun!) Friends get 50% off, so that's only $150 each for a brand intensive with plenty of opportunities for custom, direct feedback.




What


Like a new biz, brand, and marketing intensive, but easier – 5 weeks of daily drip lessons, Monday-Friday. We'll break down branding and social media marketing into easy digestible chunks for you to gain vision and create a solid foundation to build off of.




Why


Because I've had tons of request from people asking how to start a business, how to turn a creative/passion into a side hustle, or how to set up their social media content in a way that's cohesive, consistent, but also authentic, where they can share their personal stories and their business services in a way that blends and makes the most sense for both themselves, as well as the people they serve.




How


  • Short daily videos under
  • 5-10 minutes
  • No specific action necessary except to THINK about what you've learned, start exploring, and try answering the questions and prompts
  • Live Q+A calls every Thursday at 2pm PST to cover any questions




Fine Print


One hour consults are scheduled at a first come first serve basis, are only being offered to Beta Group members, and can only be redeemed during month of Beta Group. First time free 30 min discovery sessions are always available.




Beta Group Discount


If you'd like even more custom feedback, feel free to schedule a coaching call at a 40% discount (that's only $75/hr to get direction specifically on your business!) for Beta Group members only, only available during Beta Group Program. Woohoo!

I'M KAT

hello

Over a decade of design experience in a wide range of industries. Some of my work can be found at the Maritime Museum of San Diego, San Diego Zoo, Postal Annex, Costco, Sam's Club, and more.

 

Now I'm on a mission to bring brand visions to life for big thinkers, cycle breakers, and thought leaders.

Why? Ten years ago, I was depressed, in a toxic relationship, struggling as a single parent, and unemployed. I've since realized the steps I took to change my life and start my business, was my way of rebranding myself.

Now I want to empower and support anyone else brave enough to share their stories, services, art, or solutions with the world.

PREVIOUS CLIENTS

The Brand Identity Process was fun and forced me to focus. It sent me on a year+ of solid growth. 2019 was up 33% after launching in October 2018. Kat was amazing from start to finish on our project! I tend to way overthink everything. She somehow knew how to wade through all the 'thinking' to get to the 'feeling' of my brand. She was able to put something together that was not only gorgeous to look at, but felt right, too. I am always so excited to show off what ever she puts her touch on!"
