Confidence that your marketing is on the right track.
Get Weekly Strategic Support
Get strategic guidance from a marketing executive who's been there.
After asking hundreds of SaaS marketers what they struggle with, one of the top challenges they cited was a lack of mentorship. And it’s easy to understand why. Tech companies are rarely started by marketers and even when they are, founders rarely have the bandwidth to properly support junior or mid-level people. I can’t even imagine how much more effective I would have been in the early days if I had someone like me to help navigate it all.
This is an investment that stays with your company and continues to increase in value over time. There's nothing more important to invest in than the people helping to build your business. More and more, the best employees expect their job to offer professional development opportunities. Do right by them and your company by investing in real guidance (not sending them to conferences or buying them books) from someone with 15 years of professional marketing experience.
Don't have a marketer yet?
Even if you don't have someone leading marketing for your company right now, executive-level SaaS experience can help get you to the next level. I will help define who you're looking for, position you to attract top talent, with the vetting and hiring process and to fast-track their onboarding. Your company's marketing needs an owner; someone to lead the charge, to live and breathe the needs of your customers and who's proud to champion for marketing internally.

"Gia quickly sized-up Tiller and started adding value."
I needed to add strategic marketing wisdom to our team. I wanted to grow our sales, and to have a partner with whom I could discuss marketing at a strategic level. I didn't know what I didn't know, and I wanted someone who had been through this before. Gia quickly sized up Tiller and started adding value. She accelerated my own learning curve, helped us hire our marketing lead, and made an outsize impact. Gia also surprised us with the added value she delivered in customer success, helping to develop a company strategy. I’d definitely recommend working with Gia, she is quick to add value and will accelerate your marketing smarts. And she's fun to boot!
"Working with you I feel like I’ve received a fast-tracked masters in marketing."
Since starting at Bus.com 3 years ago I’d been seeking mentorship from a senior marketer who gets it. I’d been introduced to many marketers with great titles at established and successful companies ranging from Intel, Lightspeed, Breather, etc. Many of these people were confident in their approaches, but they didn’t understand the big picture. Initially it was hard for me to describe what they were missing, but I can finally put it into words: they didn’t know anything about their customer or their journey.
From the first call I knew it would work. You cared, you thought, and you listened. Too often marketers are ready to prescribe their strategies and tactics and they forget that it’s not about who has the best way of user acquisition. Instead, we worked together to figure out where I had gaps and we filled them with frameworks and strategies that make sense.
Working with you over the course of 9 months I feel like I’ve received a fast-tracked masters in marketing. The value I’ve received in understanding the importance of our customer, how to build strategies around them, and how to empower my team to succeed are immense. I feel like I’ve received a toolkit that will help me establish a strong, sustainable strategy for Bus.com, and will follow me throughout my career.
