Delivering meaningful marketing and storytelling solutions for passionate business owners
“It can’t go on like this forever.”
You’ve got your hands full creating the thing you love creating. You’re really good at it. But when it comes to communicating with your customers, there are a few things you’re struggling with:
- You don’t have the time or energy to think about marketing.
- You don’t know how or what to do next to grow your brand’s awareness.
- And you know you’re not reaching your full potential.
We can help you clarify your message and reach the right audience.
What you need is a partner who can, with clear eyes and a fresh perspective, take the time to assess the way your business is communicating with the world and help you find the right people — help you find your tribe.
At Making It Creative, we don’t just hop in to manage social media or write newsletters. While these are important marketing communication tools, our goal is to go deeper. When you work with us, we’ll take time to deeply assess your brand and your vision so that we can create a more meaningful story for your business.

Branded Copywriting & Storytelling
What story are you telling your customers? We can help you clarify your message and develop your brand story so that it resonates with your customers, engaging them to take action.
VIDEO for Websites & Social
Today, video is consistently the top-performing media type on every platform. There is no better way to captivate an audience or demonstrate mastery. Video is just another medium for storytelling. We’ll help you to tell the story here, too.
PODCAST Setup & Strategy
It’s no news that podcasting is on the rise. And for good reason. Build a deeper connection with your audience, share your stories, and invite your fans to engage with you in a new way. From developing your niche topic to recording and editing the audio, we can help.
EMAIL MARKETING & List building
With the algorithm constantly changing on social media, an email newsletter can prove to be a more stable and deeper way to connect with your audience. We can help you start your email list, grow it, and write newsletters that encourage your fans to take action.
Sales & Referral Strategy
“All business problems can be solved with more revenue,” we think Mark Cuban said that. Sometimes the only ‘problem’ with getting more revenue is selling. We’ll work with you to build authentic sale processes that grow your business.
Assess your needs.
We’ll meet to learn more about you, your business, and the challenges you’re facing.
Build a marketing roadmap.
After that, we’ll develop a custom strategy and prioritize what needs to happen next.
Put it into action.
Finally, we’ll create a plan to execute the marketing tactics, track progress, and make adjustments as we go along.
It is so refreshing to work with these professionals in a market that has been riddled with not living up to their promises. Sarah and Tony have been instrumental in sharing our story with existing guests, as well as finding new ones to share it with! Their passion for the success of their business is based on the success of their clients — a win-win for small, growing businesses.
