Content Sanity Masterclass

Are you tired of posting across all of your social media channels weekly, but wondering what really works? Or spending hours and dollars perfecting your photoshoots for a good Instagram post, but only using it once and feeling it go to waste? The Content Sanity Masterclass was born out of our very own frustration of creating new content, photos and sharing information in ours, and our clients businesses weekly, but not really maximizing the same pieces to get their full reach and engagement value.

So we created a system to maximize the type of content created weekly, only 6 essential pieces, and the strategy in how and where to use these key pieces to get the MOST reach, engagement and value out of them, so you can get back to RUNNING your business, and not being a slave to social media.

Boutique Bootcamp

Boutique Bootcamp

Boutique Bootcamp is a 7-week premium, signature program designed to holistically address the needs of boutique owners from all aspects of business, marketing and traffic strategy, so they can eliminate overwhelm, increase traffic and make more money.

The program was formed by our Founder after coaching small businesses for many years and pinpointing the most common and crucial needs of #boutiqueboss boutique owners. We start by looking
at the most basic yet, most important strategies of a boutique or brand from optimizing time, content, teams and ideal customers. Then we craft a signature strategy to optimize each social media channel, your email marketing, Facebook audiences, Facebook Ads, and finally, we optimize your e-commerce platform for the best conversion rates. We leave no stone unturned.

We don’t believe in placing band-aids on your business, we know the importance of drilling down to the core of your brand, your voice, your strategy and then we top it off by building traffic to your site. We don’t give you a fish, we teach you how to fish so you can feed your business for a lifetime.

Currently, Boutique Bootcamp is not being offered in 2019, due to a very busy schedule for the Hub. If you’d prefer to be on a wait list for the future, please apply below.
