Tactics are cool. Strategy is gold.

Technology has changed by leaps and bounds over the last few years and somewhere along the way, you probably went from focusing on your own business…to feeling like you need to be a graphic designer, website developer, social media specialist, SEO expert, and online advertiser. With so many cutting edge tactics, it’s hard to keep up.

You deserve the best possible strategy executed by the best possible team. We combine strategic planning with a thirst for knowledge and love for connecting people to build your business a marketing plan that works and execute it through a team of specialists designed specifically for your goals.

Hello! I’m Holly Burgess.

I’m a Digital Media Advisor and Founder of Heartwork Marketing. I thrive by helping people build marketing plans that workAs a 15 year sales, marketing, and media veteran, I care more about ideas than products, platforms, and tactics. When your marketing is based on strategy, everything else falls right into place anyway.

I work with clients in 2 stages.

1. Building a Strategy
We work together to identify your goals, ideal client, and market opportunity, along with a budget and tactics that will align.

2. Building Campaigns & Teams
When you’re ready, I bring the vision and strategy we created together to life. I lead a team I build specifically for you to put our plan into action. Leave vetting vendors and staying on top of trends to me while you focus on your growing business.
