Wouldn’t it be great if this was true, “build it and they will come?” But that’s not the reality.
Whether you’re a new or seasoned entrepreneur or small business you need targeted messages, strategies and actions to attract new clients and get repeat business.
The good news is that’s where I fit in.
To get you more business, we clarify everything from your ideal clients to the right services to offer and prices/fees to charge. This gives us a clear path to follow. We then create, or update, everything from your brand identity, to your descriptions, marketing messages, plan and sales tactics.
For over a two decades I’ve been assisting entrepreneurs and small to mid-sized companies to get more business. Here are some client reviews.
I walk my talk. Starting at age 21 I created three successful businesses of my own. Over the years I’ve shared my ideas and solutions to help hundreds of other businesses to grow. Added to that experience I have an education in psychology and sociology and a strong gut sense of what works. I’ve also taught, written and spoken about business, marketing and sales.
One of my ideas is featured in the 2017 Woman’s Advantage® Shared Wisdom Calendar. In 2015 I was voted a TOP TEN Small Business Influencer: Small Business Trends Awards. My book, OutSell Yourself: Ethical Business and Sales Techniques, has been recognized as a TOP TEN SALES BOOK by Small Business Trends and also contains a lot of what I know.

Kelly’s smart, insightful, creative, and she’ll give you the straight goods about where she thinks you are on track and where you need to make course corrections. Kelly looked at my marketing materials and website. She offered simple suggestions for improving my position in the marketplace. I made the changes and improved my marketing presence by 100% — almost overnight. I was so impressed that I recommended she work with a colleague of mine who was a brilliant innovation strategist. But he hadn’t been able to find and communicate his core strengths to his market. Within a few sessions, Kelly had him on track—by helping him clarify the essence of what he offered and targeting his messages for success. After years of only moderate results, my colleague found a new way to position himself and hasn’t looked back since. Next my partners and I decided to organize a conference for senior executives of large corporations—not an easy audience to attract. Kelly first helped us develop and flush out our business proposition and define our messaging. She then showed us how to truly connect with our audience. She created a straightforward, actionable through-line we were able to follow from beginning to success. I cannot recommend Kelly highly enough. Whether your issue is how to leverage your own personal brand or that of a complex organization, Kelly’s advice is gold. You’d be smart to take it.

Kelly helped my business to reach new heights I never thought I’d reach this year. She helped me take my business radio show to a live audience, every quarter. Using Kelly’s input I increased sponsorship, got national media exposure, and surpassed all goals for paid attendance! I recommend Kelly to work with you. She keeps you on track, is a hard core strategist, a big picture thinker, and totally real.

We own Media Savvy and SpeechYou.com. Our clients are people who want to increase their presentation skills for both media appearances and live presentations. Kelly gave us tools for moving the business to a new level. Her insights were both original and easy to implement. She has great energy and such a positive view of life and possibilities.

Kelly’s different from other consultants I’ve worked with. She doesn’t just tell you what to do. She rolls up her sleeves, gets in there, and works with you. Kelly began by asking a lot of thought provoking questions. From there she helped to flush out our brand and style. Plus, develop an ideal client profile, up the services to offer, and more. If you want to take your business to the next level, I highly recommend Kelly McCormick. She really knows what she’s doing!

Prior to selling my wealth management company, Kelly McCormick was recommended as a business development and marketing whiz. She immediately worked to identify our business model, brand and goals, plus our client profile and needs. Kelly then translated complex financial terms, and services, into a variety of easy to relate to wealth management resources for potential clients. She followed that with targeted marketing messages and strategies. This included reformatting our weekly financial radio show. In addition, Kelly coached us to deliver our information and calls to action in a way that people connected to. As a result, our radio show saw a dramatic increase in audience growth and average listening time. Subsequent inquiries for our revitalized Wealth Management Resources led to new business. I highly recommend Kelly McCormick and her services.
