Communications Audits

Communications audits are a natural starting point for wine businesses who know that they’re not selling enough, but don’t know why. We’ll review your messagin, website, social media, and analytics from a consumer’s point of view. Then, we’ll report back (in language that makes sense) and provide actionable recommendations to increase engagement, loyalty, and conversion.

Strategy workshops

Strategy workshops get to the heart of what’s holding you back, and give you a plan to move forward. We’ll spend three intensive days on-site working with your stakeholders to prioritize your goals, clarify your message, and understand your customers. Then, we’ll present findings in a format that helps your team strategize, communicate, and grow.

workshops. oh yeah.

Frankly, I could not have done it without Polly. Her skill set, experience and knowledge in this field are literally the most proficient I have ever come across. Polly has a unique analytical approach to a task. This combined with her natural high EQ enabled us to fast track our work, get things done and get them done right – first time. Polly’s leadership skills are second to none. She listens carefully and questions, absorbing the challenge/issue and working through best practice solutions every time.
