Get to know us

Hey there! 

We're Connect & Conquer.

And we’re here to help business owners like you get super clear on what it takes to build and grow an irresistible brand presence.

We’ve been in the marketing game long enough to know what works, but we’re also obsessed with staying a step ahead of ever-changing tools and trends and we’re not afraid to push boundaries and get creative. 

That’s because we’ve also been in your shoes, growing businesses from the ground up and putting our own advice into practice in the real world.

In January 2020, we rebranded to create Connect & Conquer Marketing. Between us, we’ve run successful companies, launched e-commerce stores and sold online courses. We’ve delivered high-level marketing strategy, managed projects and coached small businesses. When it comes to marketing, there isn’t a box that we haven’t ticked.

And now we’re sharing all that knowledge and know-how with you. 

Supporting small businesses in playing big is what we’re all about, so are you ready to connect and conquer together?
