Marketing Consulting & Coaching
Since 2000, our Founder and Chief Marketing Strategist Kelly Rice has taught small businesses how to build effective marketing systems that save time, are easy to manage and duplicate, and generate better leads.
A lot of small business owners are working long hours and spending time on marketing, but they aren’t getting the results they want.
Most small businesses choose to handle their marketing by themselves, but many overstimulate and confuse their prospects with wordy messaging and industry terms. And we've all been taken a time or two by slick salespeople selling the next best thing since sliced bread.
This leads to longer work days, working weekends, and typically spending too much money on marketing initiatives that don't really work.
Most marketing consultants are great at telling you what you should be doing but don’t necessarily teach you how to do it.
Your experience with Treefrog will be different. Kelly will be leading the discovery of your foundational marketing structure by teaching you our science-based protocols and providing you with the information, tools, guidance, and oversight needed for YOU (or your team) to build your marketing systems.
Kelly established Treefrog in 2000 because she is blessed with the ability to bring clarity out of chaos. She and her team have provided guidance and structure to hundreds of small businesses, helping them create marketing systems that are easy to manage and generate better leads.
However, the biggest impact she's seen over the years is the relief business owners feel after creating a marketing structure that works for them and not just another campaign they pray will work.
Choosing a marketing consultant is a big step toward making your life a lot easier.
With a marketing consultant, you can work to accomplish just about anything in regards to growing a business.
A marketing consulting partnership consists of Kelly (and sometimes a member of her amazing team) leading you through the process (step-by-step) of building your marketing systems.
You can start at the beginning, review what you're already doing and streamline the process for maximum efficiency and effectiveness, or simply pick Kelly's brain for strategic advice.
With over 20 years of helping small businesses, she's consulted on just about every situation.
In your sessions, you'll learn how to filter bad advice, define your best audience, write clear and concise messaging that drives engagement, understand how your website affects sales, build an effective lead-generation plan, and so much more.
These are a few things that you can expect to accomplish based on your first two meetings:
- Review what’s working for you and what needs some adjustment.
- Work to define and set goals that impact your business.
- Identify a starting point to begin meeting goals.
Let's get to work.
It's important to understand that a marketing consulting partnership doesn't require Kelly or her team to complete the work for you; she teaches you how to do it or how to overcome a challenge.
Think of Kelly more like a coach. She's going to give you the playbook for the items you want assistance with and help you understand how to run the plays. A few things that can be covered include:
- Strategy - what you need to do to accomplish your goals
- Audience - whom you should target, what to say, and how to say it
- Website - how to turn your website into a lead-generating tool
- Social Media - how to effectively use social networks, posts, and ads
- Content - how to create a sales funnel that generates leads 24/7
- And so much more
Kelly will help you create action steps and provide oversight, but you're the one who will put in the work to achieve the goal.
Her guidance has helped hundreds of small businesses create systems that generate better leads with little to no ongoing effort.
She will be there to guide you every step of the way and promises your hard work will pay off. However, if you just don't have the time or desire to develop and execute a plan of action, you might find more value in a full marketing partnership — where we do all of the work and you get all of the benefits.
It’s very common to view marketing as just another necessary cost.
But great leaders know it’s an investment. Most of Kelly's small business coaching clients invest $300 to $1,200 per month in strategic marketing consultation. Each 75-minute meeting is billed at $150, with a two-session minimum per month.
We offer flexible contract hours but do have a minimum commitment of six months. This is because Kelly only accepts a limited number of consulting clients to ensure they get her full attention. This is why we've shared the investment details openly with you — so you can determine if this level of investment of your time and finances meets your expectations.
If you’re ready to get started on building lead-generating marketing systems that free up your time, request a meeting and we'll schedule an initial video conference.
During this interview time, you and Kelly will spend 30 minutes discussing your business, goals, and challenges, as well as your options for moving forward with a consulting partnership.
Whether you’re a seasoned professional or just starting out, there are three things that you can do that will make the biggest impact on growth.
We’ve developed this e-book, 3 Steps to Effective Marketing, to help you focus on the things that work, show you how to do it, and get you started with some examples.
