This is the only two-day online conference designed to help small businesses transform the way they market and grow their brand. Elevate brings together top experts to inspire you with fresh ideas, keep you in step with the latest marketing know-how, and help you boost your ROI with the most effective strategies that you can use right now.
And, best of all, there’s no travel! You and your whole team can attend Elevate from work or home, anywhere you are in the world. And on your own schedule, too.
Social media is a tough game for small business, and that’s why we’re tackling this critical marketing tool for fall 2019. Do you struggle with how often to post? Which ads and what platforms make sense for your audience? How much time and money you should be spending? Then this is the conference for you.
Without a plan, social media marketing can be a massive resource drain. But Elevate is here with some very good news! With the help of our expert speakers, you’ll gain:
Recordings of each Elevate session will be available for registered participants to watch and re-watch for a full year—including all live workshops and Q&As! That means you can participate in real-time or on your own schedule, and you can revisit topics throughout the year to refresh your skills and memory.
"I really enjoy the ability to watch whenever, but also having the workshops that are live - partially because it allows for specific questions (awesome) but also because it gives me a deadline of when I need to watch."
- Cierra J. Savatgy-King, Founder, Pigtail Media
"I signed up because I want to learn actionable steps I can take to reach more people in a human way! I’m excited to learn strategies for IGTV especially as a way to connect via story."
- La'Kita Williams, Founder, Co Create Work

- Alicia Michelle, life coach at Vibrant Christian Living, Elevate Fall Attendee
"With the multitude of virtual and in-person events, it’s important to me the event creator is passionate about providing value and the speakers are experts in their respective fields. Marie hit the mark with both of these! She is passionate and dedicated to ensuring her audience gets exceptional value and she has put together an all-star lineup for this summit!"
- Claudia Cometa, Owner and CEO at Peace Advocacy Group, Elevate Fall Attendee
