Build Your Business Your Way

Most people don’t love “marketing.” It can feel uncomfortable and downright… unnatural.

The usually happens when you use strategies and tactics that are worlds away from  the way you normally communicate.

An effective marketing strategy gets you in front of your best customers consistently — and leaves you time and energy to do your best work.

You’re way more likely to stick with it when everything you do feels like you.

If you’re ready to build your business your way, you’re in the right place.

About Stacey and Agency of WordsI’m Stacey Cornelius — Artist, Maker, Marketing & Business Coach

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 took the skills I already had and filled in the gaps myself.

When colleagues began asking for marketing advice, I started a blog, which led to consulting work and teaching workshops for arts organizations across Atlantic Canada.

The Agency of Words is about more than telling customers about your work. It’s also about what you tell yourself.

Here you can find resources for marketing, social media, brand storytelling and brand-building.

You can also get advice on how to work around the stumbling blocks that most small business owners encounter.

You have a place in the marketplace. It’s time for you to claim it.
