Raise your hand if you’ve ever thought, “Online marketing doesn’t work for me!”
The reality is… You might be right.
Copy-And-Paste marketing strategy doesn’t work for people like you.
You’re a non-traditional business owner driven by purpose and impact. You work with unconventional clients (and perhaps with sensitive or “woo-woo” content).
You need marketing strategy and operational systems as unique as the clients you serve and the content you create… in ALIGNMENT with who you are and what you want.
You need a Strategy Intensive deep-dive… with someone who understands all this.
Hi, I’m Amber Kinney.
I’m the Founder of The AK Collective.
And the way marketing is advertised in this industry doesn’t “work” for me either. That’s why I started my business and my *Signature* Strategy Intensive Sessions.
My job is to get inside every part of your business and marketing strategy to provide you with fresh eyes on the complete Customer Journey… combined with 10+ years of experience in this industry.
Because here’s what I know –
Effective marketing is NOT (only) about what you see… the live launch, the paid ads. It’s NOT about the number of opt-in sign ups or people who “like” your paid ads. It’s NOT about creating false scarcity or making threats to tease the sale.
(In fact, if you have to threaten someone to buy your offer, you’ve done something VERY WRONG along the way.)
Effective marketing is about *everything* that leads up to a sale. It’s about the holistic Customer Journey – from getting leads to nurturing leads to converting leads.
And it’s a commitment to building long-term sustainable growth.
To Where You Want To Be
You don’t have to throw money at Facebook ads...
… and *hope* this will save your next launch
You can stop flip-flopping marketing strategies…
You don’t need to enroll in another marketing course…
These “solutions” only compound the bigger problem…
What you’ve learned about marketing is not quite right.
Yes, you need a business plan and marketing strategy in place.
Yes, you need to know your Ideal Client and what they want.
Yes, you need to understand what works (and what doesn’t) with digital marketing.
You can create a strategy that’s UNIQUE to you and your business.
You can build a business that works BETTER than any cookie-cutter plan you’ve tried.
Because you’re no longer doing it with your wisdom and experience ALONE.
My job is to help you zoom out to take the macroscopic view of your marketing strategy and zoom in to take the microscopic approach to your business operations.
Strategic planning requires both: the macro-view (of focusing on priority areas and long-term goals) and the micro-view (of zeroing-in on individual tasks and short-term goals).
This ensures that the Big Vision happens, because it’s matched with Small Tasks.
This is how we combine marketing principles with marketing practice.
A strong strategic plan serves as the roadmap you will follow to get from where you are now… to where you want to be.
This includes a marketing plan to help you stay focused on the Big Vision with an operational focus to help you prioritize day-to-day and weekly action steps to actually achieve your goals.
In a nutshell: strategy is working ON your business and operations is working IN your business.
But you need BOTH to create a coherent (and doable) action plan.
Here’s How It Works
