#1 A 30 minute one-on-one branding review with brand designer extraordinaire, Dre Beltrami, The Branded Solopreneur!

In Dre’s words:

To help guide you from half-assery to bad-assery on the scale of instantly recognizable status I’ve put together the official ‘Solopreneur’s Quick & Dirty Guide to Branding’ ebook.

This branding ebook is a bloat free recipe that will help you gather, prepare and assemble the ingredients you need to build a brand that will stand out online and dominate your solopreneur success in 2015 and beyond.


  • Discovery
  • Inspiration
  • Creation

On top of gifting you a copy of my branding ebook I am also going to jump on a call with you for 30 minutes to talk to you about how you can leverage branding to create your signature style so you can stand out online and profit from the work you love doing.

Are you suffering from ‘holy cr*p this branding shiz is over-friggin-whelming’? OR, do you wish someone would just give you a list outlining EXACTLY what you need to do to propel your specific brand into the instantly recognizable stratosphere?

Did I just hear a ‘hell yeah’ slip out?!

If so, I’m here to help!

Enter…my One-on-One Branding Mentorship!

Here’s the skinny:

The branding mentorship is one-on-one time with me as we take a look at your branding and how we can propel it. The end result is a list of EXACTLY what you need to do to reap the rewards of instantly recognizable status.

Another words, getting my ninjaesque branding eyeballs all over your website & brand, resulting in a crystal clear action plan you can follow to build your badass brand. Can you say, brand propelling mode ACTIVATED?!

#2 Super adorable blog graphics ($25) from Trina Esquivelzeta to help take your blog design to a new level!

Message from Trina:
The shop was born from my love of drawing and painting. I love watercolour and pretty floral patterns and wanted to incorporate my hobby into something I could nurture – so an Etsy shop seemed the answer. It allows me to work as an individual when necessary around home life, but also take part in small projects and it’s great to be part of a community. I’ve met so many new people through my shop conversations and shared ideas and skills, it’s amazing what people are willing to share with each other.

Enjoy a 25$ voucher to spend on anything in the Etsy shop. You’ll find lots of useful graphics and background patterns for both bloggers and website owners. I specialise in feminine graphics and regularly make one-off items for customers. Items can be used without credit for multiple sites and projects. Be sure to follow along on the Facebook page to be the first to hear about sales and new items. You might even find the odd freebie to download.

  • Renee Hu says:

    I want help with my brand, because it varies all over the place. I want to create a clear design and an amazing logo that I won’t want to change for a very long time.

  • This is so generous of you all!

    For my brand, I’m really struggling with integrating myself into it. I’ve been very consistent with my visual branding, but it seems to be missing “me,” if that makes sense.

    This comes across in my written voice and the lack of real, recent photos of me. As a teacher, I really am the face & voice of my brand, and I need to embrace that. (I’m hoping videos will help!)

  • Dani says:

    As a new blogger I have yet to find my brand. I’ve changed my look so many times since I started out in May. Would love to be able to have something more set in stone!

  • Emily says:

    I would love to have help with my brand, because I feel like I am all over the place. I recently updated my blog design and am loving the look, but need to align my logo and social media accounts with my blog to have a consistent brand. I think that hardest part for me has been figuring out what I need to do to develop my brand.

  • What great prices! Thanks to anybody for these generous prizes!
    I do own already Marianne’s amazing eBook “Blog Beautiful” which I have work more with it to create a nice clean design. What I would love to win is the voucher from Trina as these amazing graphics.

  • Trina says:

    Thank you Marianne, another great deal.

    I’d love help with my branding please. It would be perfect timing.

    Good luck everyone –

  • Great prizes. Would love help with my branding as I’m currently working on a redesign with new header and colors.

  • Kirsten says:

    I just started my blog this year and I’ve been struggling coming up with an identity, so to speak. Getting help with my brand would really help with this and make me feel more confident in my blog and what I post.

  • Anna says:

    I’d like to enter giveaways #2 and #3, please.

    I would absolutely love some help with my brand. I am a new blogger with big dreams of using my knowledge to help others.

  • Amy says:

    I started my blog a few months ago, and while I tried to create something professional, I was simply doing the best I could at the moment. The more I look at other blogs, I realize I want to consciously create a stronger brand and image and one that truly reflects me. I would love your help!

  • I want help with my brand because I’d like to expand myself one day. Currently, I just have a blog (that needs a redesign stat!). One day, I’d love to be able to branch out and sell handmade items and I’d like the union to be seamless.

  • Elle says:

    Thanks so much for sharing the details of your redesign process. So much work but so worth it!

  • Stacey says:

    I need branding help! I have changed the idea behind Mom on a Plan and never really decided on a good branding strategy. I’m also getting ready to launch Our Geeky Life and could use help figuring out my branding since my husband is no help! I want to launch well.

  • Leah says:

    I need to give my blog a real design since I haven’t done anything since I moved over to wordpress. Problem is I don’t know how to design and don’t know how to brand myself so it really resonates with my readers. I would love your help to figure it all out.

  • Alana says:

    I would LOVE some help with my brand because it really isn’t cutting the mustard! Needs an overhaul I have no idea where to start!

  • Amanda says:

    I believe I commented on another post, not realizing this to be the post to count as an entry.

    All these gifts are great and so helpful in widening the website reach of these entrepreneurs.

    Thank you for opening up this help for so many.

    Best of luck to everyone!

  • Wendy says:

    I am in the process of completely revamping the look of my blog. Let’s face it, I put it together one night when I couldn’t sleep at 3 AM, and haven’t fixed the look yet. My daughter just finished her freshman year as a graphic design major, and she has given me many tips this summer (limit the different font usage, pick 2-3 colors, stop using so many exclamation points, etc. 🙂 ). She was going to help me get the final product ready, but alas, it is time for her to go back to school, and her summer jobs didn’t leave enough time to complete my project. So I am halfway through hashing it out, and I’m losing my “expert.” DYOB at its finest! 🙂 Yep, I need LOTS of help!

  • Claire says:

    I’m trying to start up a lifestyle blog in addition to my current travel blog (I’m not going to be doing much traveling in the near future, but want to keep blogging). But you know what? lifestyle blogs are hard to define and pin down – I have an idea of what I’d like to grow into, but I’m having a lot of trouble balancing being too generic, too rant-y, and getting too personal. Right now what I have is a bit too girly, I’d love some insight in how to make it a bit more cohesive under one brand.

  • Eloquence says:

    I’m just getting ready to start an etsy shop and I definitely think my blog could use a relaunch to go along with that!

  • I need help branding because I don’t have a clue how to do it myself.
