I’m Ayanna Coleman

I got my undergrad degree in marketing, a minor in English, and my graduate degree in library and information science.

What does all that mean? I’ve studied marketing tactics, I’ve been trained and love to do research, and I have an affinity for words that work.

But grades and certificates don’t make a good marketing consultant. They better have crafted campaigns, worked with different individuals, organizations, and products, and seen results.

Luckily, I’ve done all that, too.

Not to mention spoken at conferences in front of hundreds, crafted panels and programming for myriad audiences, and connected with and supported organizations and individuals within the education, consumer and professional services, media, nonprofit, and financial industry groups across Japan, Hong Kong, Europe, and the United States.

Why this Course?

Is this too good to be true?

It’s not. Ayanna’s found that if people are ready to learn and implement, they make gorgeous things come to fruition. Marketing is about research, planning, and execution. Once people know where to spend their energy (and where not to) it becomes easier to do all the rest.

This Course is only for those who are ready to cut the crap out of their marketing, get clear on what they want to sell and who they want to sell to, and give them the tools and a well-organized DIY environment to make that happen in the most digestible, efficient, and supportive way possible.
