How To: Be Content With Content (Free Guide Included!)

Personal brands, business brands, start-ups…there’s a lot that goes into creating a business. You want to do something that you love and earn compensation that reflects the work you put in.

You’ve set up the bank account, you’ve followed legalities, you’ve branded your company and purchased the materials needed to get going.

Let’s tell people about it!

 

Oh, but it’s just sharing a few photos and updates with a touch of humerous mishaps, right?

Eh….not so much.

You want to tell people about what you’re doing but it’s important to tell the right people, on the right channels, the right way. And the field of communications was born…

 

You don’t get fitter by just buying the gym equipment you have to use it!

You don’t get instantly prosperous by doing a one-time marketing session or class. You don’t get traffic or customers by just posting about it once and carrying on, hoping everyone will remember you’re selling ____ . Communication is a multi-platform, full-time job.

So you have the social media accounts but now what?

 

If you can, pick up some help. If you’re maximizing your resources, you should be BUSY and you’ll need to focus on doing the part of the business that you love. This can be difficult for many business owners because it’s usually something with your hands or that requires all of your attention.

Once you’re done working, you want to spend your time doing…well…what YOU want to do.

One of your goals in starting your own business was being in charge of your schedule.

So why are you letting it run you over?

 

I’ve seen waayyyy too many people fall just short of taking advantage of their communications strategy. Their competition, who are focusing on their communication and content strategy ALWAYS COME OUT ON TOP.

 

Creating content that converts…not just gets Likes

 

Will you let me help you?

Whether you want to be a top dog or you just want to play the game, I want to help you reach your goals. I created this content guide I’m about to share and had it in my marketplace ready to sell but knew the same people who weren’t paying for content strategy before wouldn’t now. So I made it an added bonus.

Is it worth something? Absolutely. The hours I spent on this could have been spent elsewhere.

But I believe this is valuable enough for you that it will just take putting in to action to see results. If you feel the urge to reciprocate, leaving a review, sending a referral or inquiring about working together would be fantastic. I am here to help whoever I can, whenever I can.

 

I would love to hear suggestions on what else you want to see and learn about. Please leave them in the comments below and don’t forget to share this on your social media pages!

Don’t Stop Until You’re Proud

Jacket: Nike. Crop & Leggings: BuffBunny Collection

 

Yesterday was my 25th birthday! (Live for a quarter of a century…check.)

Trust me when I tell you I absolutely do not take that for granted. I have lost friends at a much younger age and with what you see in the news daily there are many stories that are cut short before they can experience many of life’s milestones. This can, and probably will, be a future topic but I came across something that really made me think on that so let’s sit down and share.

Don’t Stop Until You’re Proud.

I read that on a sign as I was browsing for something to spend my birthday gift card on.

Woah. Yes.

It doesn’t say “Don’t Stop Until You’re Skinny” or “Don’t Stop Until You’re A Millionaire.”

Not until others are proud or satisfied. Not until you get made fun of or turned down. Not until you’re bored or unmotivated; but proud.

 

Being proud of yourself can be taken poorly if you’re arrogant and unwilling to humble yourself; true. Being proud of yourself is understanding that you respect yourself enough to feel good and worthy even in the face of something that makes you feel bad and less than. Every time we lost, we had to hear or see why. Understand it. Accept it. Go on.

I’m proud that even though you pissed off your sister or were a jerk to your spouse that you took a breather and came back saying ‘I’m sorry, I love you, I’m on your team.’

Don’t just go until I’m proud though; don’t stop until you’re proud.

 

Cheers,

Marin

Why Local Collaborative?

marin profileHey, I’m Marin! I’m named after a county in California but I was born and raised in a small Kansas town. As in we still don’t have stoplights and I went to school in a cornfield, y’all. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Journalism & Mass Communications (Focus in Public Relations) from the greatest school on Earth (Kansas State University) where I met my husband.

His career as an Army officer takes us across the country. We have a love for adventuring new places, hiking the most beautiful trails and searching for a new favorite beer all while loving on our Iranian rescue pup, Argo.

There are several challenges as a Military Wife but finding and maintaining a career is toward the top of the list. After some jobs left me feeling unfulfilled, underutilized, under-paid, and held back, I finally felt it’s time to fearlessly pursue a creative, fulfilling career. Isn’t that what we’re all looking for?

I am forever grateful that I’ve been consistently working my entire life. The variety of jobs I’ve held have taught me lessons to keep me humbled and well-rounded, allowing me to better serve my future clients and career. I’ve had several unique opportunities and experiences to apply to my work and have been encouraged for my creative ideas, innovative promotion strategy and eye for design. Paired with those skills, I have implemented public relations, advertising, marketing, communications, customer service and sales to provide a fresh eye and challenging approach to business.

I’m inspired by the thought of bringing you a collaborative marketing approach from your most enthusiastic local entrepreneurs. People I have worked with and trust from multiple industries. I believe in authenticity, I value transparency, I accept feedback and I expect a growth mindset from those I partner with. I strongly believe you can have fun while being professional. I believe you can be modern and rustic at the same time. I believe sandwiches should be hot, drinks should be cold and notes should be handwritten. I believe you should stand firm in your beliefs with an open mind.

I’m excited for what’s to come and I appreciate you being here. Let’s go have some fun!
