CONNECT WITH YOUR
You’re committed to your business and dedicated to your craft.
Genuine, thoughtful communications make a memorable impression. Your brand story, told at its best, builds your reputation and inspires confidence.
Brand storytelling is about much more than “marketing”. The right message, crafted with care, helps you connect with your audience.
A smart marketing strategy matches your most natural communication style with the media and platforms that show you at your best. The right tools and tactics help you create a memorable and lasting impression.
I’m Stacey Cornelius — Communications Specialist & Marketing Consultant
I hold a BFA from NSCAD University, and diplomas in information technology and graphic arts.
My professional experience includes retail (as a manager, consultant, and business owner), small business administration, technical theatre, freelance web design, marketing, copywriting, content writing, and social media.
(I also know how to strip a roof down to the ceilings and replace the whole thing, but I don’t ever want to do that again so I’m not putting it on the list.)
I got into consulting over a dozen years ago, after starting a jewelry design business. I wanted focused marketing advice, but had a hard time finding experts who really understood my business or spoke my language. So like any good entrepreneur, I got to work filling in the gaps in my knowledge.
When colleagues began asking for marketing advice, I started a blog, which led to consulting work and teaching workshops for arts organizations in Atlantic Canada.
It’s frustrating to see smart, talented people struggle with marketing. I’m committed to helping creative, purpose-driven people grow their businesses while maintaining a sane work schedule — without breaking the budget. It’s about tools, tactics, and long-term strategy that helps you achieve your business goals.
