  1. Libby is an authentic marketer who focuses on value-based and ethical marketing strategies so you can feel really good about the marketing you do. She will never push you to do something that doesn’t feel good.

  2. Libby is a qualified marketer with over 20 years small business marketing experience whereas most marketers spend their careers in large corporations. She didn't just crack the code. She knows what you need to do to make every dollar count.

  3. Libby is forward-thinking. Advertising and marketing no longer work like they use to. Using old school marketing may not achieve the results you desire. If you want to make sure you create long-term sustainable growth you need to position yourself on the right side of these changes.

What previous clients say...

Thomas, Chef-Owner, Lupé Canggu, Bali

“Before I really didn’t know where to start and it seemed all a bit too hard. I had done some marketing courses before and loved what I learnt but I didn’t know how to bring the ideas into my business.


Once I opened my restaurant I was even busier doing everything to stay afloat. But I needed customers, and I need them every day. Libby helped me through the tough times, she clearly knows her stuff, and I could trust her.


Telling our story and designing a business that was unique in a market already saturated by restaurants was something we did earlier on, and it continues to pay dividends. We’re lucky we started engaging with Libby and thinking about these things right at the start, I wouldn’t have this competitive edge if it wasn’t for Libby and her coaching.


Now I have more confidence knowing how to promote our business. And I know that marketing is not something you set up once, although your foundations are so much more important than the day to day marketing, marketing is something that needs to be made a priority on a daily basis - if you give it your attention and priority then you’ll be rewarded.”

Anna Kingi, Co-owner, Level Movement, Mangawhai

"Before I met Libby I had no idea how to do marketing, I thought marketing was always inauthentic and I wasn’t really aware that I actually needed much marketing. But I wanted to get that edge. So I signed up for her strategy and coaching program. And I loved it! I loved every time I knew that I had a session coming up.


All Libby’s stuff was backed up. It was really research-based so I was convinced by it and I didn’t find it difficult understanding how it would work.


And it was really applicable, it wasn’t just theoretical. It wasn’t like “if you engage your customers, they will be more likely to buy from you”, it was more like “this is how you engage your customers”… it was the ‘how-to’.


Libby provided a space for my own brain to go for it, but gave me the structure so that my thoughts were logical…it completely made sense to me. There were a lot of light bulb moments. The whole experience built my confidence.


Selling wasn’t natural to me but now I can talk to people on the street and feel confident in that. I would 100% definitely recommend Libby”

Mandy Lacy, Facilitator and Consultant, Mandy Lacy Consulting

“Before I worked with Libby, I totally underrated the importance of marketing. It wasn’t a skillset of mine – I had dabbled in it a wee bit and got people to my classes but I struggled with time and knowing what to do.


Working with Libby pushed me to think deeper, having a real strategic approach to what we did rather than just writing about my courses. Libby encouraged me to think about what people want to know and what would work for them. This also helped crystalise my own thinking.


After determining our strategies (like my point of difference and benefits), we created a website, tried different mediums and tested Facebook ads. The result was my latest course was full of participants who were primed, engaging and fully aligned with the program. So not only did Libby’s marketing get bums on seats, it got the right bums on seats. 


I was impressed with how Libby takes the time that’s needed to get the basics right first, drawing on her breadth of experience incorporates and small business to tailor strategies to fit. The other thing I was impressed with is her scientific research and how she always shares the latest practices and results. But also the work I had to do myself was significant, and Libby’s coaching helped to think these things through from a marketing (and therefore the client’s) perspective.


Overall I’m most impressed with the quality of the clients who have come through since working with Libby, and would absolutely recommend her to other small businesses (which I have done!).”
