Running a successful business is really, really hard work.
It seems like there’s never enough time to get everything done. You need to actually find and build relationships with clients and customers who want what you have to offer. Your dream clients, so to speak.
I’m Jessica Wicks, a marketing strategist and communication specialist. My passion is helping dedicated entrepreneurs succeed by building their brands and managing their reputations.
Since 2009, I’ve worked in both corporate and entrepreneurial settings to plan and implement campaigns with budgets ranging from grassroots to six-figures.
The common thread to my work is that I take a birds-eye view of who my clients want to reach and strategically plan to use their resources in the most effective way.
