Are you connecting with the right people and getting the results that matter?
If not, maybe it’s time to build something real.
We help peoplebuild online platforms that focus on relationships that matter – that are based on shared values and the things you both care about
DO YOU FEEL OVERWHELMED BY THE NOISE ONLINE?
what if you could simply connect?
Rather than feeling lost in a sea of information, we help our clients find clarity around who their clients and customers are, what they need and want, and how to connect with them both online and offline.
We teach you how to listen first and show you how to gather the people, organizations, communities, and things that matter. Then together we co-create a Foundation Plan that aligns marketing and business goals and leads to conversations, trusted relationships, and impact.
THE GATHER METHOD™
curate people, ideas & opportunities that expand your business
Since the beginning of time humans gather… We crave connection, relationships, and the need to be seen and understood.
Think about what happens when you gather in community with family or friends or in a business context.
Conversations happen. Ideas spark.
Fast forward to today and it’s no different online, it simply takes a bit of a different approach. In fact, it’s easier to gather the people you want to connect with online when you take a strategic approach, start small, and grow intentionally.
I have been using this methodology for years with clients and in my own business.
It’s called THE GATHER METHOD™ and helps you to gather what matters to you.
- Gather your audience
- Gather your content
- Gather your collaborators/partners
- Gather your ideas
The people, communities, books/authors, podcasts, media, events, associations, keywords, hashtags, and more. Gather them all in one place that I like to call the brain trust and co-create plans and strategies from there. This instantly scales everything down. Saves time, resources, and gets faster results.
This is how we work with leaders, small to mid-sized business owners, and content creators. We teach them how to stop, define their audience, listen, position themselves, and most importantly to own their voice online and offline.
To leverage technology, communicate their stories, and cultivate relationships that grow their business in a strategic, targeted, and human way.
Our toolset includes social media, media opportunities, content creation/marketing, social listening, and search marketing.
Together, we co-create an integrated communications plan that represents YOU and is built on purpose. Added benefit… the business intelligence gathered from this approach drives better-informed business decisions and uncovers unforeseen opportunities along the way.
WHO WE WORK WITH
What Our Clients Are Saying
The typical social media professional advised things like “We can get your name out there. Buy a list. Blast this out.” It did not feel right, what intrigued me specifically about Donna is when she said… “We’re going to listen to conversations first. We’re not going to put you out there until you are ready. First we listen, then we position, then we join the right conversations in a strategic way.” This approach has changed everything I believed social media to be.

While I know beyond a doubt my social ‘presence’ is imperative to the success of my business; I’ve always struggled to figure out how to do it without feeling like Sisyphus. Donna helped me to connect the dots; tying it all together beautifully and making it understandable as well as doable. I finally get it! I now have direction, inspiration, and consistent momentum. My online presence is still a work-in-progress, yet now I’m thrilled to do it as opposed to dreading it. Her intake form alone lit a fire within me. Donna’s deep passion for her work, serving her clients, and mission to change the way we market ourselves in a more authentic and intentional way, has changed the trajectory of my business. I’m extremely grateful for my work with her.

As a small business owner, it took 5 years to convince me that I needed to do social differently. (Apparently, I’m stubborn like that.) Kudos to Donna who showed me, step by step, how to build a meaningful online presence — while keeping it simple. She also pinpointed exactly which tools to leverage so that this doesn’t take over my life. If you truly want to connect with other humans who will hire you to speak, train, coach, buy your book or get press, I highly recommend hiring Donna to make it count.
