CHRISTI & CO.
With 20+ years of experience in marketing and advertising, we’ve worked extensively in print design, digital design, and brand development. Over the last five years, social media marketing and brand strategy have become the new normal in brand storytelling. We take great joy in developing a brand’s story, marrying it with the perfect design and delivering strategies so business owners get noticed, see growth and start realizing their goals.
We’ve helped individuals launch their own businesses, revitalized corporate brands to be more personal, and created social media strategies for start-ups and established organizations.
IS THIS YOU?
You’re a dreamer, an achiever, an idea person.
You may not be able to put your finger on it or articulate exactly why you’re here, but my guess is you have something burning inside you – a big idea – just waiting to be walked into.
I know exactly what that feels like. You wake up in the middle of the night thinking about it. You find yourself in the middle of the day dreaming if “IT” could be possible. Or, maybe you’re like some of my people who have a jumble of ideas that need to be sorted through to uncover what next steps seem right.
Have you ever been scared to FINISH and FOLLOW THROUGH but seriously couldn’t live with the regrets? ME too!
If you’re a business owner looking to pivot and rebrand, you’re in the right place. If you’re struggling with the demands of posting consistently on social media because you’re busy running your business, you’re in the right place. If you feel like your marketing message is yelling, “HEY, BUY FROM ME!” to random people who seem to scroll right past your post instead of building relationships and offering to help with a problem, you’re in the right place. If you have an idea and want to start a business but you just don’t know where to begin, you’re in the right place.
With a Journalism and Mass Communications degree from Iowa State University, I learned the ropes of the advertising world working in two ad agencies, a printing company and the ethanol industry as the Iowa E85 Coordinator for the National Ethanol Vehicle Coalition.
Since my corporate days, I’ve helped individuals launch their own businesses, revitalized tired corporate brands and created social media strategies for start-ups and established organizations.
As a former adjunct professor in advertising/marketing and guest lecturer at Northwestern College, I’ve learned to teach what I do, which is much harder than you might think!
My passion is to help people embrace their big, wild dreams, start something new and tell stories that make people lean in. If this sounds like you, then let’s definitely talk!
If I’m not helping my clients build their business, you can find me baking homemade bread, catching up with my kids who live all over the country, experiencing the joys of being a first-time grandma, writing about my family or spending time with my man. He travels quite a bit as a regional sales manager in the animal health industry and occasionally I’m able to tag along. Staying in beautiful hotels, visiting states I wouldn’t ordinarily see and enjoying meals that foodies blog about are my favorite things. It’s a new stage for me – and I’m loving it.
I share this ONE life I’ve been given with my fourth-grade sweetheart and husband, Jeff, our four children, two dogs and a beautiful gray kitten in a house on 11th Street.
Need someone to help start or grow your business? send me a message. I’d love to chat!
