Why did you start Communicate Your Joy?
I’m a single mama with two elementary age kids, and the time commitment of a regular 9-to-5 job meant I was missing out on a lot of stuff. Scrambling to find childcare coverage on sick days and snow days got old. I’m also an only child, and taking care of my aging parents is one of my top priorities.
I’ve always been a follower of the “work smarter not harder” mindset. Without the confines of a climate controlled office, I can accomplish more in a few hours at home in my yoga pants than I ever did working in a windowless cube.
I believe in transparency with my clients. I saw countless examples in the corporate world of people in leadership positions doing things they’d be ashamed to tell their kids about.
What services do you offer?
Right now, I offer marketing coaching sessions both in-person and on Zoom at a cost of $60 for 60 minutes.
What is marketing coaching, exactly?
In our sessions, we’ll review your current messaging and pinpoint where you might be stuck. Some examples include:
Identifying your target client
Your website copy
Your website layout
Your social media channels and posts
Your sales page or lead magnet
Ad copy (Facebook/Google/Instagram)
Random tech questions (ie “how do I do that in Wix?”)
Overall questions about your messaging
WHAT THIS IS NOT: virtual marketing support/assistant services.
Who do you work with?
Most of my clients are hella smart women who are resourceful at figuring anything out. They’re great at their chosen craft, but they don’t have the marketing background to understand best practices or keep up with the latest ways to communicate with their clients. Coaches help clients by identifying what exactly needs to be done in order to obtain the needed results. Prepare to come away from our sessions with a long but powerful to-do list of inspired action steps!
How do you like to communicate?
I communicate through Voxer and email with my clients. I try to limit the amount of time I am in my inbox to 2-3 times per day, and send one, focused communication rather than a string of emails or texts.
Do you offer refunds?
I want all my clients to be happy, and I value transparency and honesty in all of my professional relationships. Unfortunately, the communications industry is highly subjective. I cannot guarantee the success of any particular communications strategy or tactic. Like any service-based business, you are paying for my time. Therefore, I do not offer refunds. Consider this example: if you’re not happy with your steak dinner, a waiter can offer to cook you a different dish, but ultimately you need to pay for taking up the time at the table at the restaurant.
