In my first meeting with Kelsey, I could feel that it wasn't just about the sale to her. I sensed that she genuinely wanted to dive deep into my vision for my company and partner with me to bring that to life. I am very particular in how I spend my money, and Pinegate has totally blown me away with the end result. It is simultaneously exactly what I wanted and so much more than I could have imagined.
I am not longer doing the side-hustle. I am a full-time entrepreneur and my projections for the year are going to allow me to triple or quadruple my ROI. :)
I believe that if you have a product or service you believe in, then it is your responsibility to get it in front of the people you serve. Packaging is everything and the branding experiences Kelsey and her team produce create effective, authentic, and results-driven marketing that's measurable and repeatable. These sites work and make your ideal client feel like you see them, hear them... you understand who they are and what they want. I think PGR's biggest strength is that their work fosters longevity for a business owner and genuine connection with the the audience I serve.
My income from sponsored brand collaborations increased 557% in the 6 months after the website launched, compared to the 6 months before the website. Yes, 557%!
I was having trouble positioning myself for the work I really want to be doing. I also needed more support within my business—both team-wise and financial support. I was struggling with the actual business planning and visioning aspect and Kelsey helped me immensely in both areas.
I had a lot of difficulties positioning myself because there was a disconnect between what I wanted for myself and my business and what I was actually doing and attracting. Now I feel more confident in the diversity of my offerings. Kelsey helped me to see the positives in the work I was already doing and gave me the permission I needed to share more of the work I desire to be doing. I'm attracting more of the work I love.
I've exceeded my 2018 income by the end of July 2019! I'm on track to hit 6 figures. Kelsey really takes the time to understand where you are and gives you practical, doable steps to move your business in the direction you desire.
Every month, Jordan is seeing $2-3k more sales coming in to her business than she was before her website launch. She’s also seen a 300% increase in inquiries coming through her websites since launching.
Before this work, I was having big issues with both my brand and website. I had no idea how to package my services or go from a one-to-one to a one-to-many business model. I had so many ideas that I knew could work but didn't know how to clarify my message to sell them. My website didn't reflect this, either. Both were in dire need of an overhaul.
When I received the Branding Document, I was blown away. Not only was everything beautiful (the logos, colors, etc.), but she took everything I had scattered in my head about my brand and made it succinct, powerful, and able to be packaged and sold in the future for my services. I'm also still obsessed with my website to this day. It's a perfect reflection of who I am and what I do.
I feel confident to direct potential clients and customers to my website. They are impressed when they see my site or materials. I feel like I up-leveled myself and my business through this process, and I am confident I can make all my dreams a reality (for real!). (PS: She has!!)
I chose Pinegate because their work was beautiful and I felt they could create a true lifestyle brand, rather than just a standard, plug and play website. It was exciting to see the brand visioning elements come together - communicating my ideas and seeing them reflected in the various iterations of the new design.
I feel like sharing my new site, social and other elements of my online presence is putting my best foot forward. I have a design that really reflects my business, my values and my audience.
Before my redesign, most of my brand partners were limited to my own niche - finance. Since my new site launched, I've been able to land partners across a broad range of lifestyle categories - tech, fashion, bridal, etc. It's exciting to be signing deals with my ideal partners.
Pinegate is a full service experience in bringing a brand from idea to reality. The team is also extremely responsive to feedback, making them true collaborators on taking your business to the next level.
I tried to create a plan and website on my own. It felt like another part time job to accomplish it and I didn’t have the time. I knew what I had in mind for my business, I couldn’t create on my own.
Pinegate Road stood out because of their quality of work was impressive. I also really loved their branding integration. I felt like they could see the whole picture of where I wanted my business to go and helping me create a brand that could carry me through was essential.
Once I began to see the overall plan for the website with my new business name, I knew things were going to be good! Once my site launched, I booked 2 new clients directly through my site on the first week! I feel so much more confident in my business with my new brand and website. It is so nice to be able to lead people to my website where I know they can clearly see what my business is all about and take action immediately . It takes some of the leg work out of my business!
The entire Pinegate road team was amazing to work with! They are friendly and fun, but super serious about helping businesses grow!
I've tripled my income from last year to this year which has been amazing. I've shifted from feeling like I had a little hobby on the side to stepping into being a real, legitimate business!
After every single phone call I would go to my husband and say, "that investment was completely worth it!"
I have clarity in my work schedule, I'm excited to work instead of dreading staring at my to-do list. I'm confident in my worth, my ability to charge what I'm worth and close sales. I have a vision for my business now, and am actively attracting money instead of waiting for the next client to knock on my door.
I've hit 10k booked months, doubling what I would have made without raising my pricing, seeking clients and being more confident on sales calls.
Pinegate offers such a holistic approach to branding and strategy. It was more than just a logo, I went through a visioning process that was so precise and informative! I was able to craft my offerings, understand how I need to show up in my business and how my brand can best show up to my audience. Working together, we found a really beautiful and strategic way for me to show up in the world. With Pinegate Road's help, I became booked out in 6 months, landed a 1$5k deal, and am already growing my team 6 months in! This is all no accident. Kelsey helped me realize how to show up in the world. Even if people hear about me from referrals, they reach out to me and book me because of my website and instagram presence.
Kelsey gave me the space to realize my dream can and will be a reality if I did the work. By working with Kelsey my mindset shifted from "I hope this works" to "this will work!" I'm honestly not sure where I would be now if I didn't sign up for this, it's been a huge help shifting my business!
By working with Pinegate Road, I was able to quit my job, gain a steady retainer client, grow my shop's wholesale orders, make better connections, and grow my Pinterest and Instagram following! Most importantly it gave me the tools to grow my business and the ability believe in myself.
