...WITHOUT worry of wasting your money on building dud products or marketing. 💸
I’ve done practically everything in the information product space, ranging from inbound marketing content all the way to outbound PR and media strategy. In this time, I’ve…
👉 … written one of New York Times’ highest-trafficked non-news-related articles in a single day.
👉 … helped launch an entrepreneur’s book to the New York Times best-selling list in the first week of release.
👉…built multimillion-dollar products from the ground-up to successful 6- and 7-figure first launches.
I’ve even made my own products and done my own marketing, getting literally hundreds of articles published in places like Business Insider, Inc., Lifehacker, New York Magazine, The New York Times, CXL, GrowthLab, and more. This collage features just a select few of my articles:
After wearing so many hats among different businesses, the #1 thing I learned is that:
Most founders just emulate their favorite businesses and gurus. Then, when their business starts to plateau they instinctively jump on:
If this is you, marketing is the wrong place to start. Because for 95% of businesses, they don’t have a marketing problem.
You see, product problems are like tiny gremlin jerks hiding in plain sight. 👹 They’re hard to identify, but once you know where to look, the blasted buggers are there just quietly eating away at profits. Some examples of product problems businesses face include (but are not limited to)…
⁉️Their launch revenue is trending downward. Maybe their last launch was only 60% of the revenue generated from the first time they launched the product. 😱
⁉️ They have TOO many product ideas and simply can’t make a decision on which one is worth da squeeze. 🍋 (Most of the time they build something anyway, even if it’s not profitable!)
⁉️ They’re spending more money (and ⏰) than ever getting leads (who don’t even end up buying!).
⁉️ They’re finding their old tactics — that webinar strategy, the sales pitch, the evergreen funnel — have all stopped working, ack! 🤦🏻♀️
⁉️ They feel like they can’t charge as much as their competition (is that really true?). 🧐
⁉️ They collect TONS of customer data…but have NO idea how to make sense of it or turn any of it into action. So they just take their best 🔪 in the dark.
⁉️ Their first instinct to address flagging sales is to haphazardly build ANOTHER product — or discount!
And more! But look, here’s the simple truth:
The best marketing in the world alone won’t profitably scale a business that has a 💩product — or worse, a good product for the wrong audience at the wrong price.
If you suspect you might have a product problem, let me help take the guesswork out for you.
"At my marketing agency, I ask every client the same question: 'Why do you deserve more sales?' If they don't have a convincing answer, I know that hiring me is a waste of money -- so I send them to Stephanie first."

I help proven infoproduct & coaching businesses make profitable products that their customers love through product consulting services and ongoing product strategy as Fractional Chief Product Officer (CPO). I help with:
👉 Product & pricing strategy
👉 Designing results-based flagship programs, cohorts, memberships, and any other digital products
👉 Product innovation and customer research… And more!
As a Fractional CPO, my goal for your business is simple.
By the time I’m done working with you, you can throw all the marketing money you want at your products because you’ll KNOW you’ve got the right products for the right prospects at the right price points.
AKA Winners. 😎
In a previous life, I was a journalist-turned-media strategist who spent over a decade living and breathing positioning and helping clients get press. Examples:
Let me tell you the secret about all this press.
Press is pretty “easy” …
… if your product is great to begin with. 😎
Because truly great products make great stories. They’re already so inherently interesting that the press are dying to write about them.
So whether you’re an infoproduct business, with an existing suite of products, that wants to grow, or a coach that wants to turn your services into products and diversify your revenue stream, I can save you from common pitfalls and help take you to the next level — faster…and more profitably.
Imagine having a Chief Product Officer by your side to help you make actually profitable products with a long-term product strategy for your small business. This person’s salary would normally be between $220K to $340K per year, according to Salary.com. That’s about $30,000 per month! But my service gives you the full CPO treatment at a fraction of the cost.
A typical investment for my Fractional CPO service is between $5,000 and $10,000 per month. I also offer a variety of one-time projects, starting at $3,000, but 97% of clients will find my monthly option to be more cost effective.
That’s because you won’t have to wait forever before you start seeing a return from investing in my services. I like to help my clients look for quick wins, as well as the long-term BIG wins. 🙌
Just let me know what you need, and I can tell you how I can help. (And I’ll definitely tell you if you’re not ready or right for my services.)
