Interview with Suzanne

DSC_7597_edit2How did you get into working as an Online Business & Marketing Strategist?

For almost 20 years I worked at entrepreneurial companies and a couple of investment firms supporting their marketing and administrative needs always knowing that I wanted to have my own business. A few years ago, I was laid off from my corporate job during the recession and took the opportunity to start my own business.

Desiring to bring cash in quickly, I did what felt natural and easy for me developing and quickly growing a virtual assistant business. Within months, I had more VA clients than I could handle myself and began to transition to a team-based support model. Allowing me to make better use of my MBA in marketing and entrepreneurship by focusing on strategic guidance and coaching for clients.

I now spend 100 percent of my time doing what I am most passionate about: helping clients with strategic marketing and with understanding how their mission can lead them to success in their business.

How long have you been an Online Business & Marketing Strategist?

As an entrepreneur, I’ve been supporting clients with marketing and business strategy since 2011. In the corporate world since 2000. 

What type of people do you work with?

I work primarily with women who own their own businesses. Typially, but not always, they are solo-preneurs, or independent entrepreneurs – business owners who don’t have any employees. Often, they feel they have a mission, but they lose their way staying focused on it while trying to connect all the dots of doing business.

When clients come to me, they are frustrated by the marketing they need to do in their business. They don’t have a plan, and they aren’t getting the clients or making the sales that they wish to be. They are overwhelmed by trying to effectively use social media and either don’t know about building an email marketing list, or aren’t doing so as quickly as they’d like.

Using my Socialize Mesmerize Monetize™ System, I break down the steps of what they need to do in order to succeed. Making the process of marketing their business less overwhelming and a lot more fun.

How are you different than other Online Business & Marketing Strategists?

Using my MBA in Marketing and Entrepreneurship and my 20 years of marketing experience, I’ve developed my proprietary Socialize Mesmerize Monetize™ System. With this, I help my clients by breaking down the steps of what they need to do in order to succeed. Marking the process of marketing their businesses less overwhelming and a lot more fun.

I like to say that my “super-power” is breaking what seems like an insurmountable task into bite-sized pieces. This makes EVERYTHING in business – and in life – easier.

I also really encourage my clients to be focused on their mission. I’ve seen that entrepreneurs who are mission-driven and who align their marketing to their mission are far more successful than those who don’t.

How quickly can I expect results?

Results come from effort and every client, business, and experience is different buy many of my clients make money within days or weeks after beginning to implement that strategies I share with them.

How do we work together and what does working with you entail for me?

Most of my clients and I work via phone or SKYPE and have calls approximately every two weeks. At the end of each call, they receive a list of actions to take or recommended items to work on. Depending upon which package they’ve selected, there is email support between sessions, and they fill out pre-session questionnaires to see how things are going.

I hold clients accountable for the work that they need to do in order to succeed and provide recordings of our sessions if they’d like them.

How do you get started with a new client?

I offer Free Strategy Sessions to those who are considering working with me. If we feel there is a fit, we decide what level of service they need and work out a schedule for our calls.
