Hi Stephanie, thank you so much for sitting down with us again. For folks who might have missed our initial interview, can you start by briefly introducing yourself?
I am a brand strategist, marketing consultant and the founder and owner of RielDeal Marketing. Since starting RielDeal Marketing as a side hustle in college, I have spent more than a decade supporting everyone from small businesses to Fortune 10 companies in the e-commerce, health and wellness, technology, real estate, fitness, beauty, and retail industries to achieve growth. Our RielDeal Marketing team offer complete marketing support – from brand messaging and web design to social media, automation and campaign management. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my husband, at the beach, or with our two dogs – Hops a rescue and Teddy the Schnoodle.
What makes you stand out from other marketing firms around?
RielDeal Marketing is a one-stop brand marketing firm that pairs proven marketing strategy with our client’s existing sales process to help small to midsized businesses build brand awareness, and get more leads and sales through. customer-focused, data-driven approach.
What can we expect to see from you and your business in 2021?
My word of the year for 2021 is intentional and with that, there’s an element of leveling up that I am very excited for in 2021. We have a lot of fun and new things in store for this year including a rebrand for RielDeal Marketing – which allows us to get really clear on who we are and who we serve. I’ve also launched a second business RielDeal & Co. to empower small business owners to build and grow their businesses on their own terms through DIY marketing courses, intuitive trainings, coaching and consulting offerings. Overall, my goal for 2021 is to be able to help more business owners build and grow their businesses and with both RielDeal Marketing and RielDeal & Co. we’re on pace to do just that!
What’s one topic (professional or not) that you’re passionate about?
I’m really passionate about helping small to midsize businesses do more with less. What I mean by that is giving business owners honest feedback on what they need (and even what they don’t need) to invest in for their business. Business growth is something I’ve been able to achieve on my own terms, with no formal training. Sharing my experience with other business owners is something I am very passionate about.
What is one trend you are seeing emerge from your industry right now?
Overall 2020 showed us the consumer’s willingness to adapt to virtual and online experience. We’ve been waiting for some. businesses and industries to catch up. Virtual events and experiences will continue to rise in 2021, which will make way for technology such as A.I. and machine learning to become more mainstream for marketing use.
