Hi , I’m Rita Barry.
I am a website designer and email marketing strategist living in the gorgeous Canadian Rockies.
I help struggling online entrepreneurs build predictable revenue into their businesses so they can stop the feast and famine cycle and run their business with more ease.
This is where I spill the beans on all the marketing strategy, complete with detailed tutorials and how-to’s. I’m not about theory- I like real world plans that also show you how to measure your results.
Over the years, some of the best money I’ve spent growing my business has been investing in myself – in the form of coaching. Being able to call on the expertise of mentor can be a game changer. Just as with the blog, coaching is filled with actionable steps and measurement so you know what’s working.
When you’re over this whole solo, do-it-all-yourself thing and are ready to move into a serious partnership – with transformational results. Signature services are unique combination of high level mentoring with done-for-you service.
I started my business, 7 years ago, so that I could be home to raise my beautiful little girl: be there for all the recitals, broken hearts, field trips and scraped knees. We have since added a giggly little boy to our family as well.
I have had the pleasure of working with hundreds of business owners, both one on one and through my online courses and programs.
What came up again and again was what I call The Field of Dreams Problem.
If you build it – they will come. (I know, I’m totally dating myself with that movie reference!)
Business owners and bloggers alike felt that if they had the fancy site and matching social media graphics, the traffic and sales would surely follow.
I’m a designer – I’d love it if that were the case, but it’s not.
There’s a whole lot more to making sales than your website design – it takes an entire system of marketing, nurturing subscribers and consistent follow up to create a solid business.
And that’s why my business evolved over time. I saw my clients struggling to make consistent revenue, pulling their hair out trying to figure out email software and just not seeing the results they were capable of achieving.
So website design morphed into design plus email marketing strategy. Because more than any other technique I’ve seen over these last 7 years, email marketing has the potential to change everything for you – when done right.
There is so much more to growing your business than pageviews.
There are creative and strategic ways to market your business. There are smart and savvy ways to optimize your site design. And there are methods to grow your website traffic beyond loud, expensive marketing shouts into the internet void.
