I support passionate and skilled business owners who love what they do, but hate the marketing part of things
My name is Patrysha – that is Patricia with a y – and my why is encouraging marketing excellence in small town small business owners and unconventional professionals through empowerment, education and example.
That’s quite a mouthful, isn’t it?
What it means is that I support passionate and skilled business owners who love what they do, but hate (or simply don’t have time for) the marketing part of things.
You value marketing, but you don’t like wasting money and you’d rather not have to learn how to do it all yourself.
Here is where I put my nearly 20 years of small business marketing experience to work helping my clients navigate the new realities of digital and traditional media. I work with movers, shakers and dreamers with small budgets.
I’ve been there, done that and lived to tell the tale. Unlike many other geeks – computer, marketing and otherwise – I’ve worked to maintain the ability to translate it into plain English.
My aim is to help you market your business through education & empowerment and example. I do that by using my writing and teaching talents to promote small business owners and through individual services as well as through group coaching and training sessions.
If you’re struggling with overwhelm in marketing your business, sign up for my free email list – it’s the best place to really start to get a feel for my capabilities and decide if I’m the right marketing and promotions person to support your business.
