Hey, boo! I’m Tivi Jones and I teach badass people about marketing.

I expand promotional mindsets and I help people create brands that work for them! If you need help with your marketing, then we should probably be friends.

TL;DR — if you’re having trouble getting the business results you truly crave, your marketing could be to blame. #RealTalk. 

Imagine for a moment…

Let’s pretend this is #GNI and you’ve already enjoyed a glass of wine… then I ask you:

How are things with your business?

You might say one of three things:

What business?!?!

“I’m having trouble launching. I’m afraid because I’m just not really sure HOW to do this. What do I really need to make this thing work?”

I can't find enough customers!

“Someone told me that if I built it, they would come. They LIED! I launched my business, but I still don’t have any customers. What’s up with that?”

I want to be bigger!

“I mean, I do OK, but I need to grow this thing. I have big bills and even bigger dreams. I need to make this business pop.”

One thing can solve all these issues. I’ll give you a hint, darling: It’s marketing.

Yes, there are levels to it. But it relates to the same damn thing:

My Programs….

When it comes to what I offer, I keep it simple and useful. As someone whose dream job growing up was a teacher, I’m all about providing value and resources. So here they are:

“Tivi’s energy and enthusiasm is the perfect kick in the pants you need to spark your business into high gear!”

~CJ Lyons, New York Times Bestseller and Author of “Rock Bottom” with Erin Brokovich

– Beth Shugg, Editor at Carolina Parent and Where® (Raleigh-Durham)

“Thanks to what I learned, I pay more attention to making all my publicity channels consistent, not only in product, but in look and feel, when I can. I have a direction and an identity now–something I can articulate, intelligently rather than ‘I write romance novels.’ Thank you! “

– Robin DeJarnett

She delivers what she promises she’ll deliver…”

Brenda Larson, Assistant Director The Duke Chronicle

 Humor, plain talk, facts, and usable information.

–Kayelle Allen
