I’m Deanna, former Marketing Communications executive gone rogue in Portland to follow my passion – helping awesome solopreneurs and microenterprises (aka small biz owners) authentically present what they do and what they love so they can attract their ideal clients.

I can help you build a communications and marketing plan to engage with your customers, write soulful storytelling content optimized for search, design you a website to drive visitors, and plan and execute your social media and marketing campaigns.

Oh, and I'm also a nerd when it comes to the numbers, so I can help you understand what’s working, what’s not, and what to do about it.

WHAT I DO

Website Design

I craft websites with intention so your customers can get where they need to go. I’m available for full designs from scratch, site organization and content strategy, copywriting and keyword optimization, tweaks, tune-ups, re-designs, and new builds, including moving sites from Wordpress (or other website app) to Squarespace.

Content Curation

Whether it’s compelling content for your website, blogs, social media, or email campaigns, press releases about your exciting new business, or a killer bio, I love writing stories that will help your business shine….and it’s all optimized for search..

Customer Communications

You have so much to communicate to your audience, but so little time. If engaging with your audience sounds like a lot of work, let me help. We'll come up with a social media, email marketing and/or digital advertising plans to get your clients excited about your brand and help you reach your monthly or quarterly goals. 

 
 

MORE THINGS I DO

Business & marketing plans. Whether you’re a new organization deciding where to spend your time and money or an established business seeking to execute a new path, I can help.

Market research. Find out all the “must knows” to build a successful business & marketing plan like the competitive space, pricing models, keywords & search engine trends, opportunity analysis, and more.

Geek out on technology. I can help you cost-effectively set up your marketing automation, scheduling and payment systems, online store, social media platforms, analytics dashboards to run your business.

Get you organized. I love building detailed project plans, editorial calendars, budgets, and campaign calendars so that you can stay focussed on priority business activities and prevent wasting time dealing with marketing “firedrills”.

Plan & execute events. Networking socials, sales meetings, team building, roundtables, expert panels, trade shows, wellness retreats - big, small, large budget, small budget, no budget - I’ve tackled them all and I’m really good at it!

WHAT I DON’T DO (But I know a gal!): Logos, original graphic design, professional photography.
