What areas will we review?

Personalised Marketing and Sales System

Through our mentoring meetings, we will give you a 100% peronalised roadmap for your Marketing and sales system. If you choose the monthly rolling mentorship, you will receive a set of 4 workbooks we will complete together to fulling maximise your salses and marketing. 

01

Find Your Gap

We understand everything about you and your business-including that: the numbers matter, where you want to be, and why it's important to you. 

This system gets you back in touch with your goal, the reasons why you set up your art business in the first place and it keeps your goal front and centre so it can't be hidden, forgotten or comprimised. 

02

Foundation Blocks

Putting in place the basic marketing systems to equip you for success. Including: Marketing asset review, Google business profile, your follow up process, price reviews, re-marketing, systemised collection of reviews, your knowledge centre, your marketing calender, and more!

03

Fix Your Marketing

By far the 'beefiest' part of the system, this is where the bulk of the work will be.

The system breaks down everything into bite-size bits and you'll only ever tackle one or two pieces at a time, so you'll never be overwhelmed. 

04

Know The Score

If you don't know the score you can't tell the winners from the losers so together we'll start by understanding how many leads are expected from each marketing pillar, per week or month and then tracking what happens.

"In the short time I have known and worked with Kirstie, I have always found her to be a force of positivity and light. The open minded and encouraging approach she displays in the running of Tebbs Contemporary Art Gallery is truly unique and refreshing in what can be quite a cut throat industry. She is knowledgeable above and beyond the art spectrum.
It’s an absolute joy working with Kirstie on the current podcast, where we can both combine our passion for helping others and creativity."
