Collaborative Marketing Consultation

What is collaborative marketing strategy consultation?

Michelle Raab, PhD, works with the client to develop a plan of action that the client can carry out. The personalized attention helps the client develop a customized and implementable plan, based on their needs and resources.

If you are interested in personalized experience but don’t need one-on-one attention, please contact me about group workshops. Also, look out for upcoming webinars. You can also check out my blog.

Marketing Philosophy

Michelle Raab focuses on the small business entrepreneur, like independent creatives and home-developed products. As such, the methods and strategies used and recommended are intended to be cost controlled.

Michelle Raab applies her unique creativity, social science, and experience in helping her clients position themselves optimally in the market. She has a documented track record of using her unique creativity, problem solving skills, and knowledge set in helping a variety of people and groups achieve their marketing and messaging goals. She will do her absolute best in helping her clients in the pursuit of achieving their goals.

Consultation Services

A customized plan will be developed collaboratively between the client and Michelle. This is will be done through a series of consultation meetings, “quick questions/run-bys”, and worksheets. Michelle Raab may be required to do research outside of meetings to answer questions raised in the consultation meetings and quick questions.

Consultation Meetings

Consultations can be done in 1-hour meetings or 30 minute meetings at the rate of $100/hour or $60/half hour or as part of a package.

Quick Questions/Run-bys

Inevitably, as the client engages in marketing tasks, quick questions or the need for quick run-bys (“can I run this by you”) will occur. The minimum charge for this is 15 minutes for $25 or at no charge as part of a package. There will be a response within an hour during “office hour” times. 

Office hours are generally M, W-F 10am to 6pm EST.  

For Tues, Sat-Sun and vacation days, a response will be given within 24 hours.

Check with Michelle Raab’s Calendly for availability.

Research

There will be a need for research to be done on the part of Michelle Raab Writes, LLC, such as finding social media hashtags, researching market demographics, and other topics. This can be billed at $75 per hour or as part of a package.

Worksheets/Planners

Worksheets and planners will be provided to the client at no charge in the form of electronic documents, such as PDFs and word processor documents.

Problem Solving/Brainstorming when not in session

This will be done at no charge. The creative process of marketing cannot always be scheduled. So, when Michelle Raab gets a flash of inspiration, she’ll communicate her idea to the client at no charge. EVER.
