Running a small business is a big task already - without doing that thing called “online marketing.” Do you really need that?
The answer is: Yes. (If you are interested in growth for your business.) Your competitors are already doing it. It may seem that they are just fooling around, but they will gain a massive advantage over you!
Don't let that happen!

We are siblings Jonathan and Susanna Gebauer, founder of multiple businesses and international social media influencers on all things marketing. We love to see businesses of any kind grow, and we know online marketing is the only method to do that.
Our social media success didn't come over night. Quite the contrary - before success came despair, failure and the bankruptcy of our first company, exploreB2B.
But through our failures we achieved expertise and through expertise we achieved success. Our current company, The Social Ms was ranked as a highly influential marketing brand on Twitter by Onalytica - less than a year after it was founded.
In our free time we both love dogs, being outside, sports and our occasional drinks. Apart from being international marketing influencers, we are also rescue dog handlers, marathon runners and participants in all activities that make life amazing.

Here are some of the questions we get asked frequently when talking about the concept of our 90-minute consulting calls:
Why do you believe that you can deliver more value in 90-minute-sessions than in large consulting projects?
We noticed something in every single consulting project we took on: The first 1 to 2 hours were always the most valuable for our clients. During these, we would assess the current situation, get a grasp or our client's current abilities, decide on the most valuable metrics, and then decide on first recommendations on next steps.
We believe that this is what our clients really needed. And that is why we think that this concept is what will help you the most.
What will a 90-minute consulting session look and feel like?
Our consulting sessions are intense, and they rely on you working together with us. We will look at data, we will guide you to documents you should read soon, we will ask you the hard questions, and we will point out if your answers aren't making sense.
Each session is structured roughly in 3 30-minute long segments: First, we are going to assess your current situation, where your marketing stands. Then we are going to talk about the ideal metrics for your personal marketing situation and get an understanding. Finally, we are going to identify the recommended next steps for your marketing journey.
How will a 90-minute consulting session be documented?
We will work together in a shared document via Google Docs. This document will cover notes from the call as well as the results.
What good does this do you if you have to wait weeks before you get your consulting call? That is why we guaratee, that you will get your call within 7 days after you bought it. If you don't, you can ask us to refund your money.
Your success matters to us!
