Experience You Can Count On

Hi, I’m Sheila. I’ve been in marketing a long time – over 20 years and my client base included big brands like National Geographic, LL Bean, Forbes Magazine, Dell, Chanel, Macy’s, and many more.

Did you know that many of the strategies used by big brands are effective for smaller eCommerce stores?

It is true.

Some of the best marketing tools and apps are designed for small businesses.

The good news is that you do not need a huge budget or invest tons of time to make these strategies work for you.

How I Can Help You

Identify Your Best Platforms and Create a Strategy

There are so many options and so little time when it comes to social media marketing. Most ad platforms offer you 11 choices when you try to place an ad.

Organic reach is hard to come by these days but it can be done and you need to be open to video creation.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained.  This is one of my favorite sayings when it comes to marketing.  If you do not try different platforms. messages, and content you are guaranteeing that you will not see results.  If you do try to develop a following, you will learn along the way and build a loyal customer base.

Yes, there are challenges but they can be overcome with a solid marketing plan with structured testing built in.
