Are You Ready For a real marketing strategy?

Most businesses come to Wild Path Consulting feeling lost and sweaty, chasing marketing tactics like social media and SEO without understanding why, and using canned strategies from the internet that don’t take into account the quirks and tricks of YOUR market and business.

Does this sound familiar?


Your marketing team consists of one person or multiple people with other positions in the organization. There is too much to do, and it’s hard to prioritize what to do first. Everything seems urgent and you’re falling behind.


You don’t have a marketing plan that supports your ideal customers and constituents, organizational goals, or sales goals. You don’t know where to begin, and you don’t have time to figure it out.


Your ready to grow and the growing pains are iminent. Your organization needs help with this transition and a marketing strategy that can support these goals.

You’re ready to work hard and be uncomfortable – as long as you have support and clear direction.


First Steps First

Without a map or wayfinding points, humans left in the wilderness will walk in circles. It’s the same with marketing.

The first step to working with Wild Path Consulting is the Compass Call, a one-hour Zoom call where I dig into your business and uncover the strengths to leverage, weaknesses to address, and develop a game plan for you. It’s also a chance for you assess me and determine if working with me is a good fit for you.

Your call includes:

  • A one-hour strategy session.
  • A SWOT analysis of your business in the current market.
  • Your three best next steps.
  • A custom proposal designed to help you take those steps and more.

This first step requires a few hours of your time to complete a pre-meeting questionnaire and a $250 investment. If you choose to work with me in the future, the $250 will be applied to your package.

For some organizations, the Compass Call brings all the clarity they need to get on the right track and move forward. For others, I’ll develop a custom plan to fit your goals and help you build your own map.
