Are you ready to get your marketing in order and boost your visibility?
If you're a solopreneur struggling to master exactly which marketing moves to make, I’m going to reveal how to go from zero traction in your marketing and sales efforts…to making steady sales to quality clients with total confidence in your brand and what you offer.
Best Part: You'll save yourself time, money and frustration in the process!
You’ll learn how to laser-focus your marketing activities to build the kind of brand momentum that draws your best prospects right to your front door.
If you offer coaching, consulting, professional services or simply need to build a more visible platform and fan base for your online or offline work, you’ll see how simple it is to create an irresistible, influential brand with MOMENTUM…whether you're just launching or you still struggle to attract attention and gt to the next level after years in business.
But don’t take my word for it…
You may have heard about my coaching program MOMENTUM before, or perhaps it's your first time. But MOMENTUM Pro is different.
This baby is road-tested!
See, I wanted to make sure it worked. Would people understand my process in a course? Did their results match what I saw in my own business and private clients?
So instead of rushing to market, I decided to invite a few people to try it out for a year.
That’s right, after creating MOMENTUM as a live coaching program, I tested and refined it for A FULL YEAR with a select group of entrepreneurs. And then I refined it AGAIN with a new group for six months, stripped it down to the essentials and packaged it up into this fabulous self-study digital program.
When those early students went through the course, this is what happened:
FROM FROZEN TO ON FIRE: "I was completely overwhelmed, basically frozen, about how to market my business but Maria does a great job of taking the big, scary idea of marketing and branding and breaking it down into very doable, manageable and, yes, fun tasks. More importantly, they are meaningful and applicable to your business.." ~ Shalimar Beekman, ShalimarB Photography
A CLEAR PLAN FOR THE FUTURE: "I came to MOMENTUM feeling unfocused and unsure of the direction my business was heading in. While I loved the content creation facet of my business & wanted to connect more with people in my target audience, I had no idea how exactly to reach those people…MOMENTUM provided me with the skill set & hands-on tools to make branding & marketing an effortless & natural part of my life & business…I know I’ll use Maria’s down-to-earth, practical playbooks & apply her advice to my business for years to come." ~ Topaz Winters, Writer/Publisher
CENTERED AN UNFOCUSED BUSINESS TO INCREASE SALES: MOMENTUM has truly changed the way I run my business and given me the confidence to focus on what I know and love best. No more trying to please everyone and stressing myself out by taking on work that doesn’t quite ‘fit’; I’ve defined my niche and started to pursue only the work that makes my heart sing. Without MOMENTUM, I could never have given my own business a proper go. Before MOMENTUM, my web design business was getting no work at all. Over the program, I've landed and learned from challenging projects and built up a list of amazing, inspiring clients. My website traffic has grown by 300% and I'm ready to tackle the new year with a PLAN and a new confidence. Worth the investment many times over! ~ Cat Wood, Catwood Websites
RESHAPED AND ALIGNED OUR PITCH: MOMENTUM was a game-changer for our business. While we've been successful, our branding strategy was out of sync with our work because we were focused on other parts of the business. The program got us focused to clarify our brand, marketing, and value. We reshaped our messaging and pitch which had a very positive effect for us and how we framed our business. MOMENTUM makes it much easier to not only ‘tackle’ our branding needs, but also enjoy the process. We now have a focused marketing game plan to help us with our business goals. We'll be going back to these Playbooks again and again as we grow. -Suzanne Paxton, Co-Founder/Executive Producer, Point Studio
While I can’t guarantee you’ll have the same (or better) results—no one can, and if they do, you should run for the hills—the concepts you'll discover in MOMENTUM Pro have helped these (and more) savvy entrepreneurs clearly define their brands, streamline their efforts and attract more of the right clients.
And that could happen for you, too.
But first, who am I? And why did I create MOMENTUM Pro for hustling, entrepreneurs like you?
My name is Maria Ross, and I’m the founder of Red Slice I help entrepreneurs demystify branding so they can land more clients, generate more sales and get more visibility.
Basically, my style is Seth Godin meets Tina Fey. Part marketing expert, part psychologist, and part savvy business coach.
Thousands of business owners have followed my advice to boost their brand and clarify their unique story. I’m a recurring guest on MSNBC’s Your Business show, and I dish out clever advice to small businesses everywhere through conference keynotes and columns in Entrepreneur.com and Huffington Post, among many other places.
And I wrote the book (literally) on Branding Basics for Small Business: How to Create an Irresisible Brand on Any Budget.
I don’t have to tell you how hard it is to juggle marketing with client work while (hopefully) still having a personal life.
Oh, and looking like you know what you’re doing every single step of the way. I’ve spent years perfecting the process to build an engaging brand and attract the right prospects for hundreds of clients—and in my own business, too. And over time, I shrunk those tasks down into a step-by-step manageable process that gets entrepreneurs results.
You know, so they could do exactly what they need to do to boost their visibility, get more sales and amplify their fabulous work, without getting burned out.
Heck, I shrunk this down into a process so I MYSELF could avoid overwhelm (Remember, I’m a solopreneur, just like you!) I struggle with it too...even though I’m a marketer. In addition to my clients, I have a toddler, husband, dog and countless to-dos so I’m completely with you.
I thought about how I could mentor others with everything I wish I’d known early on in my business so I could have avoided spinning my wheels - and to share with them what has worked so wel for me.
…And that’s how I came up with MOMENTUM..and then later packaged into this MOMENTUM Pro self-paced program, for you hustling, cut-to-the-chase DIY entrepreneurs!
You might already know some of my backstory. Over the past 10 years, I’ve maintained a successful business through a freak brain aneurysm, a cross-country move, an economic collapse, and the birth of my first child at 41.
(And a bunch of less dramatic but still stressful events in life that we all deal with.)
Any one of these life events can derail a business forever, yet mine has stood the test of time because of the momentum I consistently generate through a strong brand, a focused message, and defined marketing plan.
No matter what curveballs (or gifts) life throws my way!
I’m not a “fake it til you make it” kind of entrepreneur. And I don’t want you to be, either. And that’s why I’m here to shoot down the kind of head trash and myths that keep smart entrepreneurs from attracting more clients, sales and recognition. Nobody wants to be the best-kept secret in their field. If you are, it's time we change that so you can make money and get the recognition your work deserves!
Myth: “Branding is only worth it if you’re a big corporation.”
FACT: Strong branding is the only way to grow your business in this crowded market. It’s the foundation for every other decision you need to make. If you don’t know what you stand for, how is anyone going to notice you, much less pay you money?
Myth: “At my size, I can’t afford to be choosy about my clients.”
FACT: Who you surround yourself with determines your success in life and business, and taking on the wrong clients means your perfect clients will think you’re not the right fit for them. Don’t mistake short-term financial gain for long-term financial success. If you create the right foundation, everything falls in line.
Myth: “Working all the time is the price I pay for being my own boss.”
FACT: The most successful entrepreneurs create systems so they can enjoy all the benefits of being their own boss. They work smarter, not harder. Otherwise, what’s the point of having your own business? You’d be better off going back to your old job and having weekends free again.
MOMENTUM Pro disproves those revenue-killing myths and helps entrepreneurs like you attract more of the right kind of prospects—so you can serve clients you love, make more money while doing it, and still have plenty of time off to enjoy your personal life.
While I love working in this industry, I realize some of my colleagues have fallen more in love with the brand process than the results. They value pretty images and entertaining words over actual conversions.
I don’t make that mistake.
Your branding and marketing has to attract clients who want to spend money with you.
And you have to do it in a way that allows you to stay true to who you are and fits into your busy schedule.
Because of my vast experience working with thousands of clients and companies—not to mention the extensive testing of the MOMENTUM Pro program—this conversion-focused approach to branding and marketing is exactly what you’ll get.
MOMENTUM Pro is a neat, tidy, self-paced program with group support that teaches you, step-by-step, everything you need to know to master your marketing, attract more adoring clients and boost your visibility.
With MOMENTUM Pro you’ll learn all the HOW's behind those marketing SHOULD's you keep hearing will grow your business.
It’s a no-fluff, get-er-done jumpstart to help you attract and engage more of the right ideal clients, generate more sales and estalish yourself as a sought-after expert.
All at your own pace. In MOMENTUM Pro, you’ll learn how to:
Even better: You’ll have access to me and a supportive community to get feedback on your ideas before you put them into practice. No more feeling like you’re on your own out there!
The course is divided into three modules: WALK, RUN and FLY.
Each module consists of 8 playbooks to help you laser-focus on mastering one valuable concept at a time and getting it done.
Each module builds on what you learned in the last one for—you got it!—MOMENTUM.
Once you sign up, you will be given access to a page to download all your Playbooks, and you'll be able to request access to our private MOMENTUM Facebook group. It's best to do each playbook in order, as the lessons build on each other.
24 juicy, creative and practical assignments that put you one step closer to more clients, sales and visibility. These aren’t fluff activities– they’re real-life tasks and assets you can apply to your business immediately. It's recommended you do them in order...and you can even choose to do one per week to pace yourself and take action.
Conspire with like-minded entrepreneurs in our private Facebook group. Here, you can request feedback from each other, ask questions, share resources/referrals and trade best practices and opportunities. I'll pop in from time to time but this group really is all about the community – other super-smart, innovative entrepreneurs who understand your struggles and are full of insightful advice. It includes all MOMENTUM alumni, so soak up their wisdom!

"MOMENTUM got marketing more into my bones. The elevator pitch was the most valuable part--what do you SAY to people about what you do. I liked all the lessons, and they built nicely, as they were supposed to. My latest class filled up after sending just one email, and I don’t think I could have done that before MOMENTUM!"
~ Cynthia Spencer
"MOMENTUM made me stop and think about my business: the why, the how and the who. Why do I do this? How do I grow? Who is my audience? Who are my allies? I tend to get my head down and work IN my business, and this pulled me out and made me work ON my business.
I already have a better idea of how to position myself and own my expertise—MOMENTUM is a great value!"
~ Tina Christianson
"It’s such a treat to observe Maria in action — she deftly coaxes clients out of their branding “safety zone,” and into a brave new world of captivating language, clear-cut positioning, and compelling storytelling."
~ Alexandra Franzen

“Being a solopreneur, I was able to get my business only so far before I needed some help with taking it to the next level. I’m so glad I chose Maria to help me get there. She is a pleasure to work with, very professional and seriously knows her stuff.” ~ Rebecca Michi, Children’s Sleep Specialist
