Stage One Business

Full-time or side hustle, it’s
been 100% on you to deliver.

Until now.

You’re doing it all: the books, sales, production, marketing.
Questions keeping you up at night go something like this:

Can you deliver?
Are there enough customers?
How will you grow sales?
Is there enough runway?

Is it viable?

Let's Find Out

More lift, less drag

It takes cash, brains, and grit to break out of Stage One and move up. Time’s flying by – and there’s only one you to get it done.

You need to launch. I’m your marketing mission control guiding you through:

– Telling your story
– Finding niche customers
– Pricing and positioning your offer
– Building the plan
– Delivering promotions

Avoid the nosedive

…because the offer was priced too high or low
…because the wrong customers were targeted
…because the story didn’t connect with buyers

The grind will always be there. Let’s make sure you never go back.

If this is your stage of business I’m here with plenty of room for joy and creativity along the way. Because if you’re not having fun growing, what’s the point?

Getting You to Stage Two:

You have an active process in place that:

– Tells an irresistible story
– Attracts customers
– Positions your offer as a leader
– Maps to a plan
– Builds awareness and brand loyalty

Zoom through your first stage of business with flying colors.

Stage one business growth process

We’ll talk about your vision, your setup, and where you’re stuck.

Your needs determine precisely what marketing levers we’ll pull. Get an analysis of your brand, offering, pricing, niche audience, messaging, and promotions. We’ll block and tackle the basics, pivot as needed, and fine-tune your growth engine.

Ramp-up times are different for each business and founder. An average of ninety days to six months is recommended but you can start, stop, or pause anytime.

Simple Workflows

Add as many requests as you like and prioritize them in any order. I’ll respond within a few minutes. 

Items are done one at a time with a guaranteed start time within 48 hours (Monday-Thursday). You have one review round. Approve as is, or with edits. 

Most items are done in one-week sprints. Low-complexity tasks (social media posts, emails, or copy fixes on a web page) are often completed within one to three days.


That’s how we knock out the work fast and without the need for meetings.

All work. No bloat. Fast results.

Unlimited Access

I’m here for you when you need it. Sometimes a brainstorm or pivot needs to be figured out fast. Your time and mine are immensely valuable so let’s make sure we’re in sync with any changes to your plan.

Post a message, call, or text and I’ll respond ASAP.

Powerful Options

You’re in luck. With 20+ years of entrepreneurship and startup marketing experience, you have access to a ton of skillsets we can apply to create your next-level business.

I’m certified in several areas of digital marketing: Google Ads, Mailchimp, SEMRush, and more.

More importantly, I’ve built successful plans and delivered results for startups since 2006.

Easy to Start, Pause, Stop

Things change, so feel free to put the brakes on whenever you need to. When you’re ready to start again, your task list, comments, and past project history will be ready for you to pick up right where we left off.

Power up the work with an upgrade in services when you’re ready. Due to the nature of the work, no refunds are available. River Dog Digital stands by its work and a ‘we’ll fix it’ policy goes into effect for any typos or similar errors. I want you to be 100% thrilled with the work provided. After all, this is the first stage of your business.

My goal is to work with you through stages one and two of your business.
