Marketing Mentorship

DIY marketing with an expert by your side


You want to grow your business, but your marketing efforts aren’t working. Maybe you don’t even know where to start.

  • You don’t know how best to spend your precious resources—your money and your time.
  • People can’t find your business on Google.
  • Social media is loud and confusing. Does anyone ever see your posts?
  • You’re getting leads, but they aren’t converting into customers.

You don’t have to go it alone.

Hiring a marketing agency may be out of reach for you right now, but you can still take advantage of our expertise to learn how to DIY your marketing in a way that makes sense for your business.

What do you get out of marketing mentorship?

Marketing Mentorship covers topics like:

Setting a vision for your business

Understanding and communicating why people should choose you

Navigating social media and the rest of the internet

Measuring results, assessing outcomes, and using data to get better

Understanding your target customer

Managing your online presence and digital marketing tech stack

Creating a content plan

Squeezing maximum results out of your resources (time and budget)

You’ll be mentored primarily by Sara Jensen, founder and owner of Brighter Messaging. She specializes in helping small, service-based businesses understand their marketing and create common-sense solutions.

In addition to marketing, Sara’s core skill set is writing. She built her career in strategic sales and marketing in the corporate learning and development industry before launching Brighter Messaging in 2012. She’s particularly passionate about collaborating with other women who are harmonizing motherhood with a creative career.


Other members of the Brighter Messaging team will also be involved in key subject areas, including SEO strategy, social media management, and brand design.

The entire program is delivered virtually. Our calls will take place via Google Meet or Zoom, we share files via email and Dropbox, manage tasks and deadlines via Asana, and chat via Slack. If you are local to Holly Springs, NC, there may be an option to meet with Sara in person, upon request.

First, we aren’t going to take you on as a mentee if we don’t think we can help you.

Second, Brighter Messaging has a long-running track record of helping businesses manage their online presence and achieve their business goals using a system that turns their websites into lead generators. Now, we’re taking that knowledge and opening up our brains to help you do what we do, for your own business. 


The cost is determined by which package you choose. Packages range from $300 to $1,725. You can pay upfront to save a little cash, or you can choose a monthly payment plan. Payments are accepted online via bank draft or credit card. Monthly payments will be auto-debited on the first of the month.

Check out the Flexible package.

You set the agenda for two calls per month with a minimum commitment of 3 months. We’re an open book!
