Just Say No To Random Acts of Brainstorming

When you book a data-driven strategy session, you get more than tired tips or vague marketing tactics targeted at make-believe ideal clients.

How It Works
Each strategy session goes deep into your key performance metrics and marketing goals to deliver strategies and tactics that are action-oriented and geared toward getting results. By the end of the strategy session, you will have 3-5 small steps you can take to get significant results. We'll also ensure you understand how to measure success and offer resources for whatever comes next.
Schedule a time that’s convenient
Eight strategy session appointments become available on a first-come-first-served basis each month. Our calendar operates on a rolling month-to-month basis, so whether it's this month or next, you'll be able to secure a time that works best for you.
Fill out the pre-session questionnaire
To make the best use of our time together, we ask that you spend 15-20 minutes filling out a marketing questionnaire. We will review this before your call and prepare by stalking your digital footprint and preparing the right follow-up questions to quickly get to the heart of any opportunities and issues.
Show up with an open mind
All you need to show up with is an open mind and a willingness to dive deep (and sometimes think about and answer difficult questions). Because each session is recorded and transcribed, there's no need to take notes, unless you find doing so helpful.
Get 3-5 simple and clear action steps
Nobody likes feeling overwhelmed at the end of a consulting session. That's why we use our time with you to hone in on the top 3-5 action steps that will get you the biggest results in the shortest period. Many clients also get additional bonus materials, including spreadsheets, calculators, and video tutorials, to ensure that they feel fully empowered to take action.
Receive 30-minutes of additional support
We're not going to lie. Our strategy sessions are intense and packed with valuable insights and information. While we strive to make insights and information as easy to understand and actionable as possible, many of our clients need time to digest and process what they learned during our time together. That's why we offer an additional 30-minutes of email/Voxxer support to answer any additional questions you may have.

We believe that while other people's frameworks may work for them (but they may or may not work for you). That's why we look at your numbers and reports to offer custom advice to suit your business needs and resources.
Analysis based on your numbers.
At the end of the day, your marketing numbers represent people and the actions they take on their journey toward booking you.

Measuring What Matters
Consultations based on your revenue goals.
You'll walk away from your strategy session with a clear vision of what will work best for your business based on your marketing metrics. Once you have clarity around what is actually happening (rather than what you think is happening), you can make better and more strategic decisions.
“I had a strategy session with Christie lately and it was amazing. After a 1-hour conversation, Christie provided me clear actionable next steps on how to set up properly my Google Analytics to track and measure conversions. I am really looking forward to see the results and get data, which will help me to bring my wedding planning business to the next level!”
"What a colossal waste of time every one of these [marketing] companies has been until I found Christie Osborne. After just a single one-hour meeting with her, you walk away with 1) The certainty that you are done searching for a marketing company 2) A better understanding of your business' appeal to people who don't already know you, 3) A plan.
Don't waste any more time. Set up a meeting with Christie and check the "marketing help" issue off your list.”
“Christie is the rare marketing pro who combines the 'global view' of your marketing challenges with the nitty gritty know-how to employ solutions that serve that 'global view'. Put simply, she gets it. So many marketing folks don't fully appreciate the struggles of the small business in a small mountain town. Christie is not one of them.
