For the majority of my career, I've worked with a very tight/no budget so I've really honed in on how to prioritise initiatives, what tools to use, and how to progress from solid V1 solutions to a more scalable infrastructure.

Venting Frustration

I'm all ears! Happy to just listen or let you know what happened in similar situations (if applicable) from my own professional experience or what I've learned from our ~100 portfolio founders.

Social Media

Which channels make the most sense for you? What content & formats resonate most with your audience? How do you build an engaged community? Picking your graphics, video, scheduling & analytics tools.

Content Marketing

Continuously churn creative and varied content driving lead generation and community engagement by finding your niche, setting up efficient work streams & distribution, and complimenting your existing campaigns & tools.

Mentor Toolkit
over 5 years of experience

Essential even if you're only managing one account. With such high posting frequency "best practices," spend less time on posting and more time on creating engaging content efficiently, reaching your audience at the best time.

over 5 years of experience

Zapier is my lifeline! It saves me an incalculable amount of time - particularly around events, PR & CRM, ops, and knowledge management. I like to keep making the standard zaps even more efficient and useful.

over 3 years of experience

I'm particularly focused on helping companies with limited resources to launch and maintain dynamic websites - assessing options for project costs in-house vs. freelancers/agencies, page builders, themes & plugins, and ongoing management.

Alicia was an absolute weapon during our call. She took the time to understand the exact questions I had, then took me through hyper actionable steps (and explained the strategic thinking behind them). Alicia also worked me through ideas and processes on how to reduce the time burden to action everything we discussed and how I can streamline the whole process. Thank you for the call!!
