The DREAMS Program

You’re the expert.  You should look like one. Share your work with confidence to make more sales. Build a system with your audience to improve advertising and referrals – without spending on ads.

Your brand is the key to your success.

 Your brand is more than your soapbox. It’s your spotlight. You choose where it gets pointed. Explore the 3  phases of an exciting, human experience: Delight, Engage, Attract.

  • Delight: Create a great first impression with clear brand, a clear website, and a social media strategy.
  • Engage: Review and redesign your marketing materials, highlight testimonials, and enrich your key content pieces.
  • Attract: Look for a unique talking-point idea, build a fan story showcase, create a space for your dream fans.

The 6-step DREAMS Map is the backbone behind these phases.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I need more pages on my website?

If you can’t go above on the monthly fee, or your existing site has a lot of content, we’ll create a custom monthly schedule to handle it.

Alternatively, if you want to accelerate your website, I will propose a one-time fee apart from the monthly rate, to get it all done.

How many rounds of revisions are there?

Each project has 1 round for feedback. Additional rounds of editing and design are available at my hourly rate. 

What are the payment terms?

Unless we discuss a monthly plan, or payment in full, most plans are a split-payment plan: 50% down to start the project, and 50% to complete it.

What do you need from me to start?

We will meet for 15 minutes to answer your questions, and gather notes for a proposal. Once you’re satisfied and have signed, start your subscription.

We start immediately with an initial quiz.

Then we’ll schedule our Month 1 meeting to go more deeply into site structure and strategy.
