If you’re ready to build a solid foundation for your expert business, you’re in the right place.
You have big ideas. You move fast. You get excited and rush to do everything all at once.
Which was perfect when you were just getting started with your business. You jumped in to learn what you needed. You built what you needed to on the fly. Your rapid-fire movement helped you succeed.
But now that you’ve been in business for a while and you’re ready to scale up… you’re realizing that your foundation is a little wobbly. You know that things could run smoother and look better.
Maybe your marketing materials don’t quite match.
Or your technology systems are a little wonky.
And you’re not quite sure how to transition from working with individual clients to running groups, workshops, or even creating your own products and courses.
If you’re a coach, consultant, author, speaker, thought leader or expert who is ready to level up your business so you can make a bigger impact — you’re in the right place.
I’m Danielle Baird and I’ll be your tour guide through the jungle of personal branding, content marketing, and the technology that goes along with it.
My #1 goal is to make building your online presence and publishing your content as fun and easy as possible.
I have met so many talented people whose gifts aren’t being shared, just because they are so overwhelmed by building a website and social media and email marketing and everything else people are telling them they “need” to be doing N-O-W.
The truth is — there is no one right way to build your brand. So, let’s find the best way to share YOUR message with YOUR people.
Will there be a learning curve? Absolutely.
Will it be a little scary? Probably.
Will you have to figure it all out by yourself? Nope!
But… I’m a “dinosaur” and I hate technology!
I get it — technology can be really frustrating. I am ready to chuck some electronic thing out the window at least once a week (and more often, once a day.) But, technology can also be complete unicorn M-A-G-I-C. And that’s what I love.
I geek out over the ways that technology can automate repetitive tasks, provide helpful reminders, and generally make your life easier. And I LOVE sharing these tips and tricks with people in my life. Because most of the time, when you’re incredibly frustrated and thinking “ARGH. There has to be a better way!” there probably is.
I enjoy partnering with people who have a lot to share with the world. I help them package their message and find the best way to distribute it to a wider audience.
I draw on over ten years of experience in graphic design, journalism, web design/development and marketing – and a wide variety of skill sets I’ve acquired along the way.
I can help you:
- Design and self-publish your first book
- Launch (or re-launch) your website
- Plan the content for your project
- Understand the best marketing options for your business
- Troubleshoot a variety of technical snafus, including issues with WordPress, hosting, email marketing, and domain transfers
- Setup Facebook, Twitter and other social media pages
- Design your logo, business cards, flyers and other collateral
- Create a digital magazine-like brochure to promote your offerings
You don’t have to have all the answers before calling me — I can help you brainstorm ideas and affordable solutions.
I enjoy working in close collaboration with my clients. I believe that the more I know about my client and their business, the better I can serve them … so be prepared for a lot of questions!
On every project, I take a variety of information into consideration: your brand, target audience, project objectives, the multiple layers of copy, photographs, illustrations, charts, graphs, etc — and distill it into a piece that effortlessly communicates your message.
(It’s kind of like the everlasting gobstoppers machine from Willy Wonka. You toss in a ton of stuff and end up with a sweet treat.)
I’ve had the pleasure of working with non-profit groups and sole proprietors, as well as Fortune 500 companies. The more direct access I have to the key decision makers, the more successful the project is. In working with small businesses, I can often work directly with the owner or CEO. These businesses are agile and we can work together to produce dramatic change, very quickly. I love taking a business from discordant DIY materials to a polished, professional look.
