Attention Solo Consultants, Founders, and Owners of Small Agencies (<5 people):

A 1-on-1 Marketing Clarity Call will give you specific, actionable advice on what to do next. You’ll come with business and marketing challenges and leave with answers to your most pressing questions.

In short: You come with questions, I give you answers. 

Read on for more details or book your call now ($400).

Get actionable advice from a solo consultant who has been there

“I always seem to convince myself through stubbornness and/or ego that I can correct course on my own with ‘just a little more hard work'”

Those are the exact words a client (who paid for a 1-on-1 call) said to describe their current marketing situation.

They had been spinning their wheels for months on an important decision for their business. In our call, we were able to identify the next steps for them to take to solve the problem.

Like many solo consultants or agency owners, you might feel overwhelmed and unsure because your plan in your head for marketing and growth isn’t crispy.

You’re uncertain, your plan is squishy, and your brain knows this.

Thus, worry. Overwhelm.

That sense that what you’re working on isn’t the right thing. That your plan won’t work. That you won’t be able to reach new customers. Or market your service.

Imagine knowing
exactly what to do next to grow

Imagine having a conversation with someone who has been in your shoes as a solo consultant, entrepreneur, and business owner since 2010.

Someone you can bounce ideas off of, who can help shake you loose when you’re locked up in analysis paralysis.

Imagine having a trusted peer to offer insight about and answers to your pressing marketing and growth questions help you see the path to overcoming those challenges.

Imagine knowing exactly what to do to move forward, with specific, actionable, personalized advice and answers to help you grow.

Book a 1-on-1 call and get your questions answered

You’ll come with questions and receive personalized advice, unique to your current situation, challenges, and resources.

Here’s How It Works

1-on-1 calls are 50-minutes long and $400. On your call, we’ll dive into your business and answer your pressing questions. You’ll get answers to your questions and actionable advice for your current situation.

After a call you’ll leave with:

  • Answers to your questions
  • Specific feedback on your business
  • Direction on what to work on next (so you avoid getting stuck)

And, of course: advice on how to improve your marketing, what to start with, what to measure, and how you’ll know if things are working.

Optionally, your video call will be recorded and shared privately with you (and only you) for your future reference. Or we can have a call without a recording. That’s your decision.

Schedule Your Call

Pick the time that works best for you right here. You’ll answer a few questions, pay for your call, and your meeting will be booked on my calendar. (Look for an email from me shortly after you book your call.)

“Do these calls help?”

They do. I’ve done over a hundred of these 1-on-1 calls and each has had a positive impact for the client.

I’ve included a few testimonials from 1-on-1 call clients throughout this page so you can about the impact of our call together in their own words. These are two that I wanted to specifically highlight.

“I had to drop you an email to let you know – since we had the coaching call last year, I’ve completely revamped my retainer services. In fact, I’ve actually CREATED some new retainer services (what I call Design Partnerships). I’ve not even fully launched them yet, but I’ve managed to more than 4.5x the amount of monthly income I was receiving before our call – by adding only 2 extra monthly partnership clients into the mix!”

—Rachel Shillcock, Founder & Designer, Rachilli

Oftentimes, like in Rachel’s case, all it takes is talking to someone at the right time to see the right path forward.

In 2020, I had a marketing clarity call with Jakub Zajicek. He expressed interest in launching a done-for-you podcast placement service, and had noticed that I had written a book and launched services in that same space. Jakub was curious if I could share any insights on the process and offer advice on how to grow his business.

Here’s Jakub’s full testimonial — the original testimonial from 2020  and his 2022 update:

Jakub Zajicek

2020:

I booked a Marketing Clarity Call with Kai because I was unclear on some steps in my done-for-you Podcast Outreach process. I had a bunch of questions about how to do podcast outreach for my clients and I couldn’t find answers online simply because my questions were too specific.

I decided to speak with Kai because of his level of experience and the overall vibe around his communication: no hyping, no income claims, clearly stating the price. Plus, I had purchased a couple of his materials in the past, so I was sure that it would be money well-spent. 🙂

After the call, I have more clarity, more confidence, and actionable steps I can take with my outreach. I thought that my process and numbers sucked, but thanks to Kai, I can see that I’m above average. With the tips from Kai, I’m sure that I can become one of the best podcast booking agencies in the long run.

I strongly recommend having a Marketing Clarity Call with Kai. In the first 10 minutes of the call, I immediately saw a positive ROI. The level of his preparation and ability to answer even the most complicated questions surprised me in the best possible way.

2022 Update:

Just wanted to let you know that since our initial call, I’ve built a 6-figure agency and given jobs to 20+ people all around the world.

The 1-hour call with you in the beginning of my journey made a true difference and allowed me to influence millions of people (listeners) all around the world.

Up to this date, we’ve booked close to 1,300 podcast interviews for us and our customers and planted 1,300 trees (yeah, we plant a tree per interview).

Thanks again. Our call was definitely the first step that kicked things off to the right direction. Really appreciate that you made the time, even though you were offering your own Podcast Tour services back then.

—Jakub Zajicek, Co-Founder and CMO, Speak On Podcasts

On our call, I candidly answered Jacob’s questions based on my first-hand experience in the industry. I gave him guidance on what to do to refine and scale his service, reach clients, and grow. Jacob put in the hard work and implemented my advice, and saw success from it.

That’s how I treat every client on a 1-on-1 call: I’m here to share advice and insight based on my years of experience as an solo consultant, entrepreneur, coach, and product creator.

"Who will I be speaking with?"

I’m Kai Davis, a solo consultant, digital marketer, and marketing coach.

In this corner of the internet, I help solo consultants, agency owners, and software founders grow their businesses, get more leads, and market themselves like authorities.

I’ve been marketing and selling my services online for 15+ years. Along the way, I’ve:

Coached 20+ solo consultants and agency owners 1-on-1 on how to market and grow their businesses

Worked with dozens of solo consultants and entrepreneurs 1-on-1 with my done-for-you and advisory services.

Helped 1,000+ solo consultants and entrepreneurs grow with my books and courses on marketing and growth

Been interviewed on 85+ podcasts for my thoughts on what it takes to grow and market a successful consulting business

Hosted multiple podcasts on the topics of solo consulting, business, and entrepreneurship, including Make Money Online (118 episodes) with nickd and Business of Freelancing with a panel of co-hosts.

I’ve been an entrepreneur and solo consultant since 2012. I love what I do, and provide 1-on-1 calls and coaching to help other solo consultants, entrepreneurs, solo consultants, founders, Shopify partners, and small agency owners figure out what to do to grow.

"I don't think I need help."

That’s not a question. And everyone needs help.

I frequently invest in 1-off calls, mentoring, coaching, and products that help me be a better consultant, a better marketer, and a better business owner

You might not think you need help right now — but let me ask you this:

  • Why would someone with access to Wikipedia and law textbooks still hire a lawyer?
  • Why would someone with access to WebMD still see a doctor?
  • Why would someone with a car and the car manual still hire a mechanic?

The ultimate answer to all of these is:

They see the value of professional insight and experience in the process of solving their problem.

If you don’t recognize the value of professional assistance, I will be unable to help you.

“What are your strengths?"

First, I excel at offering a perspective on how to overcome your marketing, growth, and business challenges.

I’ve been doing this for awhile, have seen a lot of stuff, and can often ask you a few questions and give you specific ‘do this, not that’ advice at the strategy and/or tactical levels.

I’m a digital/direct marketer by trade with over 15 years of professional experience. I think of myself as a marketer first, a business coach second, and an entrepreneur third.

When we have a call together, I focus on asking questions to understand your current situation, the outcomes you’re looking for, and your resources and unique constraints.

From there, we talk together to figure out what you should do next and define a realistic plan to grow you from where you are to where you want to be.

Second, I understand the emotional side of building a business.

Running an independent business is hard.

Oftentimes, your friends don’t understand the challenges of what you do. You could have your highest revenue month ever… and be stressed and overwhelmed.

It can feel incredibly isolating if you don’t have anyone to talk with to celebrate the wins or share the challenges of growing a small, independent business.

“What makes you qualified to tell me about my business?”

I’ve worked as a freelancer, contractor, and solo consultant for 14+ years.

I have hard-won, real-world, first-hand experience in what it takes to move from freelancer to business owner, market yourself online, position (and reposition) your business, and build an audience.

When we have a call you’re tapping into:

  • My years of experience working as an solo consultant and entrepreneur
  • My background as a digital marketer, email marketing, and business-person
  • My self-study and education, giving you access to everything I’ve learned studying how to be a better marketer, solo consultant, and business owner

If you’re looking at a problem or question in your business, chances are, I’ve been there, and can offer a perspective on different approaches to consider, share some resources, and point you towards what you should do next.

“Who is this not right for?”

1-on-1 calls are absolutely not a good fit if:

  • You don’t have an investment mindset
  • The idea of working towards a goal over time makes you feel icky
  • You’re more interested in the latest marketing/startup/business fad than you are building a durable, sustainable business

Questions, asked with some frequency

Yes.

Your purchase is protected by my 100% money-back guarantee.

If at the end of our call I haven’t been able to identify any opportunities for you to market and grow your business, I will refund you 100% of your payment.

Once you submit your payment, you’ll receive a link to schedule a time for us to talk. I’ll send you a few questions to learn more about how I can help.

 

 

No. I might recommend a few books or pieces of technology that you can optionally invest in. There are no hidden fees or additional costs.

 

No. Calls are strictly 1-on-1.

You are free to bring a list of their questions with you to ask on the call or share the recording of the call with them after the fact. The calls will only consist of two people: you and me.

Availability Is Limited

I’m only available for a limited number of Marketing Clarity Calls each month. Scheduling is first-come, first served.

The sooner you book your call, the sooner you’ll have the answers you need to improve your marketing and your business to the next level.

“Kai, you gave me a piece of advice last year that made those “famine” times almost non-existent, and I wanted to tell you THANK YOU! You told me to revisit my former client list and touch base with them and once I started doing this, I got so busy I almost couldn’t keep up. I really appreciate it.”
