Money-making messaging for speakers & SMEs

  • You’ve achieved some level of success with audiences you’ve spoken to. But you’re unsure how to get on more stages, more often—at higher fees

  • You’re frustrated that your distinct value isn’t clearly expressed in your marketing materials

  • Your marketing efforts, when you even have time, are stalled—or not well executed

It’s true: Too many speakers lack the expertise, bandwidth, and insider’s perspective to create clear, unified, buyer-directed communications. And showcase their highest value.

But you can gain an unfair advantage.

“I hire Andrea to generate crystal clear business communications for my clients—from web copy to sales scripts to e-books. She then distills it all into powerful, convincing materials that move sales conversations forward—fast!” Lenora Edwards, Business Development Consultant
