Capturing those special, uncurated moments in our children’s lives and holding onto their stories is on every mom’s priority list. However, with everything we have going on as parents and business owners, traditional scrapbooking can be daunting and overwhelming. 

Don’t you just wish there was a really easy way to get all the photos out of our phones and into a book? Well…there is. Chatbooks is an app that’s simplifying how moms capture memories, and the story behind its creation is as awesome as the product itself. 

Chatbooks really understands how moms think and feel, how did they get so dialed in with their target market? 

In today’s episode, I’m joined by the co-founder of Chatbooks, Vanessa Quigley. We talk about how this business came to life, and why their marketing is so effective at reaching moms.

Overall our marketing has been successful because we’re honed in on who our customer is. We are selling to ourselves.

Do you ever feel like you need a coach to help you reach your goals? Of course you have, we all have, and you DO need support, guidance, and accountability. The challenge is that you have always believed that you needed to spend thousands of dollars to get the attention and guidance you need. UNTIL NOW!! (ok I always wanted to be super dramatic and say that)

But really, we built the Nurture to Convert Society to be the ONLY (and I really mean the only) group coaching program that offers a member-centric approach that provides so much more support and guidance than any program you have already paid for or hoped you could find.

For every wonderfully brained Boss Mom who feels like
they just can’t seem to figure out how to get their business to grow.

Who doesn’t just want a coach telling them WHAT to do, but one that will actually show them HOW to do it (we are talking step-by-step). Who wants to be a part of a vibrant private community that provides meaningful feedback AND get personalized coaching from an experienced marketing/content expert.

A Boss Mom who knows that her beautifully unpredictable schedule isn’t something that needs to be fixed to be successful (because you can’t),
and wants to follow a system that will get results without sacrificing family time.

If you want to join a group coaching program that gives you specific (and flexible) guidance, makes you feel supported, gives you just-in-time decision support, becomes your new community home, and helps you reach your sales and marketing goals in a way that feels easy, fun, and not so time-consuming. Then you have found your new home my friend.
