“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 Marketing Clarity 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.
Often all it takes is to talk to the right person at the right time.

exactly what to do next to grow
Imagine working with someone who has been in your shoes as an independent business owner, a solo consultant, and an entrepreneur.
Someone you can bounce ideas off of, who can help shake you loose when you’re locked up in analysis paralysis.
Like many entrepreneurs, you might feel overwhelmed and unsure because the overall plan in your head 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.
Imagine having a trusted peer to help you overcome this challenge.
Imagine knowing what exactly to do to move forward, with specific, actionable, personalized advice and answers to help you grow.
“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

“Do these calls help?”
I’ve included a few testimonials from clients throughout this page about the impact of our call together, and this is one that I wanted to especially highlight.
In 2020, Jakub Zajicek and I had a marketing clarity call. In 2022, he followed up to let me know how things were going.
Here’s Jakub’s original testimonial from 2020 when he was solo and just starting out:
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.
— Jakub Zajicek, Co-Founder and CMO, Speak On Podcasts
And here’s Jakub’s 2022 update/addition to his testimonial:
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.

“Who is this person talking to me?”
I’m Kai Davis, an independent consultant, digital marketer, and internet marketing coach.
In this corner of the internet, I help indie consultants and experienced freelancers 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
Created 12+ courses on marketing and growth for freelancers and consultants
Been interviewed for my thoughts on what it takes to grow and market a successful consulting business on 85+ podcasts
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 entrepreneurs, solo consultants, Shopify partners, and small agency owners grow.
Questions, asked with some frequency
“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 hire a maid when they could just clean their home themselves?
- Why would someone pay a barber when they could just cut their hair themselves?
- Why would someone pay a mechanic to repair their car when they could just learn how to do it online?
- Why would someone hire a landscaper when they could mow their own lawn and rake their own leaves?
- Why would someone pay an accountant to file their taxes?
The ultimate answer to all of these is:
Because they have more money than time.
If you don’t recognize the value of professional assistance, I will be unable to help you.
“Do you offer refunds?”
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.
“What are your strengths as a coach?”
First, I excel at marketing and growth.
I’m a marketer by trade with over 15 years of professional experience. I think of myself as a marketer first and a business coach third.
When we work together, I focus on understanding your current situation, the outcomes you’re looking for, and your unique constraints. From there, we work together to define a realistic marketing 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. 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 indie consultant for 14+ years. I have hard-won, real-world, first-hand experience in what it takes to move from contractor to freelancer and from freelancer to indie consultant.
When we work together, you’re tapping into:
- My years of experience working as an independent consultant
- My background as a marketer and business-person
- My self-study and education, giving you access to everything I’ve learned studying how to be a better freelancer, indie 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.
“Do you work with people just starting out?”
Over the years, I’ve discovered that the clients who have the most success working with me are established freelancers, business owners, and independent consultants. As such, I concentrate my work on those clients.
“Who is this not right for?”
Marketing Clarity Calls are absolutely not a good fit if:
- You want to see changes immediately
- You don’t have an investment mindset
- The idea of working towards a goal over time makes you feel icky
- You don’t have the time (~4-hours/week) to invest in working on your business
- You’re more interested in the latest marketing/startup/business fad than you are building a durable, sustainable business
“What happens after I pay?”
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.
“Are there any other costs?”
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.
“Can my business partner be on the call too?”
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.
“How long before I see results?”
If you’re committed about investing in yourself and have time regularly scheduled during the week to work on your business, then you could see results in as little as a few weeks.
But I don’t know you, how you work, or how you treat your business. If you don’t put in the necessary time, you won’t see the outcomes you’re looking for. Just like a gym membership.
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.”
