The struggle is real.

 

Being in business for yourself is effing HARD.

There’s never enough hours in the day. And you know what’s NOT helping?

A recent study found that on average, a small business spends 20 hours a week trying to figure out their marketing.

 

You can’t work any harder. It’s time to grow your business smarter.

We’ll teach you how to be Marketing ROCKSTARS. 

It’s time to make your Marketing dollars work FOR you instead of against you.

It’s time to get noticed as the bada$$ authoritative leader you are.

It’s time to turn customers into fans and talkers.

It’s time to fill your pipeline with the right people.

It’s time to OWN your bottom line by joining the one online membership community that will teach you the insider secrets of how to grow your business or your personal brand smarter, faster and less expensively.

The biggest money waster is poor decisions. Small businesses and entrepreneurs have to make good decisions the first time; they don’t have the cushion that larger firms do.

Every penny counts. Wouldn’t it be great to have a sounding board to help you make better decisions about your Marketing? A team of experts to share YOUR challenges with? How much time would YOU get back? How much money would you SAVE?

This is for the lone wolves. The pioneers. The mavericks in business who lay their butts on the line every day in the name of business.

If you could learn how to make Instagram work for you to get customers in the door, would you join? If you could learn how to up your Search Engine Optimization game to get found by new customers, would you join? If you could learn how to use Evernote to save you time with your blog, would you join? If you got the master list of apps you could use to build content like a designer to market your business instead of spending hours researching on iTunes, would you join? If you could learn how to use Facebook Live video to increase your page Likes, would you join? If you could pick the brains of pros who have built thousands of campaigns, would you join?

So, what do we know about Marketing, anyway?

Building and growing brand bottom lines is what we do. 

In 2002, we co-founded our Silicon Valley marketing agency, PureMatter, and in the 15 years since have made a lot of money for our clients. Over $1 Billion in fact (we know, we added it up.)

We’ve branded, rebranded, marketed, and consulted literally thousands of companies.

We built our own personal brands, and have written books. We’ve spoken all over the world about marketing, social media, design, creativity, technology, and business.

We’ve been featured as leaders in the social media and marketing industry in Inc. Magazine, USA Today, Entrepreneur, Ad Age, Fast Company, The Huffington Post, Forbes, and more.

We want to help you grow YOUR bottom line.

And yes, we have an agency that could certainly help you. But unless you’re a global brand with brand-sized budgets, this isn’t an option. That’s why we launched Own Your Line, so we could scale the knowledge, insights, tools and resources that we’ve gained as marketing entrepreneurs for the last 20 years to the people who need it the most – YOU.

Clients we have helped grow.

Small businesses owners waste too much of their own time – and, time as we know is money – doing tasks they have no prior experience in.

They should instead focus on their core business strengths, and hire trustworthy outside support for areas that fall way outside their comfort zone.

~ Christina Rae, President of Buzz Creators

"This is great content, covering step by step instruction on how to connect with others, as well as how to convert that connection into a relationship that can lead to impressions, subscriptions, and profit. As I transition from the Military to the business world, I am confident that I can now build a quality blog, grow an extensive mailing list, and link all my associated social media platforms."

JOSEPH WATLER
USN, Special Warfare, Entrepreneur, Comedian

"Each lesson is stimulating, fun, and at the same time, actionable. There is just the right amount of practical advice and information to ensure that we can all build relationships which lead to results in any field or endeavor."

LYNN ABATE-JOHNSON
Founder, People Forward

"Staying up-to-date with the changing marketplace is more than a full-time job. While I often know what to prescribe to my clients, I don’t know what to do for myself. In this course, I discovered that my personal marketing message was all over the place and Bryan was able to help me develop a much needed focus. If it wasn’t apparent to me prior to taking part in this that Bryan and Courtney were special people in my life, it certainly became obvious after going through the course."

J.S. GILBERT
Author of the soon to be released, “Influencer Effect” and Advertising Creative/copywriter

"After helping a countless number of business owners and larger companies work on their branding programs, I decided to make the investment into working on my own brand. It was money well spent. The course does a magnificent job of laying out the strategy, planning, and execution phases of brand building. I was able to recognize the cracks in my personal brand and marketing foundation, solidify my platform and build an infrastructure that I can take out into the marketplace. Make the investment and reap the long-term benefits of this program!"

BRIAN MORAN
Founder/CEO, Brian Moran & Associates

"I am thankful to Bryan for guiding me on the personal branding path, helping me get clear on my message, and encouraging me through all of the hard work to get clarity and be able to clearly and succinctly articulate my personal brand and message. Doing the hard work of defining my message has made me a better leader and has opened up my career to new possibilities and continued growth. "

Love in, love out.

We have a saying around here – “Love in, love out.” It means that you’ll get out of this what you put into it, in equal parts.

Anyone in business knows that if someone promises you a “get rich quick” scheme, the only one getting rich is the person selling it. That is not what Own Your Line is – not even close. We’re a community of dedicated, business-minded humans who believe that rising all tides lifts all boats. We’re here to share, support, educate, give, and celebrate when a line finds a straighter path to its destiny. Our goal is to line up as many happy and fulfilled Scribes that we can – and this does not happen overnight.

Let’s do the work, together.

The bottom line

Sometimes, you just want the bottom line about what you’ll get for your money. This is that section.

  • 2 Live Online Workshops a month taught by super smart Marketing practitioners

  • 1x Monthly Live “Hotseat” Coaching Call with Bryan + Courtney (where we feature 2-3 of our members and focus on their marketing challenge)

  • 1x Monthly Live “Party Line” Call (where our Scribe Tribe can share ideas and questions with each other)

And… why again?

  • Being a Small Business or “xPreneur” is hard, and can be lonely sometimes. We’re here to be a resource so you can spend less time figuring out what Marketing tactics will work for your business.
  • Big agencies charge a lot because they have to. You can get big agency thinking here for a year, for less than the cost of what they would charge you for just 4 billable hours.
  • Our community is stronger together, because we’re all going it alone and need support and solid advice from people who are professional Marketing practitioners. Plus, we’re helpful, encouraging, and fun <– BONUS.
  • Touting more profit is important – but don’t forget about getting hours back in your day, and the confidence knowing that you’re getting professional advice about your Marketing challenges. Life isn’t just about money (although we love money), but we care about the wealth of our community too. Relationships matter.
  • An annual membership is the preferred method of joining, because, you know, #math.
  • “Love in, love out.” Do the work, and your outcomes will trickle to your bottom line.
  • We can’t wait to get to know you. Our Scribe Tribe is waiting!
