Tentative location: Savannah, GA

Registration opening soon


Small group, intensive marketing workshop designed for small business

Sound familiar?


“Social Media isn’t working anymore!”

“No one sees my posts.”

“I did what the influencers do and I got a ton of views, but made no money.”

“I don’t know how to show up better in search results.”

“How much should I be spending on marketing?”

“I have too small of a list for email marketing to work.”

“My neighbor ran a billboard and it worked for her, will it work for me?”

“TV and Radio are dead, right?”

“I tried a local marketing seminar and I was too busy to implement any of the suggestions.”

“I’m too busy to work on my marketing, but I need more customers.”

I get it!


Marketing changes constantly and it’s hard to stay on top of the changes when you have a business to run. Local marketing events are great but I find it hard to focus when that info is smooshed into the middle of an already hectic day.

From past participants

“I recently attended the Elevate Workshop by Kate Winter in Savannah, Ga. This is a must-do for all small business owners. The group was small enough for personalized attention just for my business. We set a clear-cut marketing plan with daily posting ideas, help with SEO, how to better understand Google ads and not break the bank, website overhaul, and Facebook/Instagram ads.

The location was perfect! Right on River Street with a happy hour included daily! Kate also set time aside for enough free time to still tend to personal business. I highly recommend this course if you are a small business owner and need to take your marketing ideas to the next level.”

Rachel Bunta- Owner, Opal Rose Clothing Boutique

“I’ve had the fortunate opportunity to work with Kate for the past 1 1/2 years…virtually. It’s been an amazing voyage working with her to help grow my business and more importantly, my online presence! When she offered me the chance to meet her in person in and work side by side with her for a few days, I jumped at the chance! And hey, let’s be honest, she chooses cool places to have her workshops as well. 😏

Elevate 2024 helped me put the pieces together to create a dynamic, user-friendly marketing plan that I have already begun to implement! Plus, I was able to get to know her much better and network with another small business owner/peer to share good practices, discuss what works/doesn’t so much, and spend time learning more about current marketing strategies. She sprinkled some fun activities during Elevate such as a Ghost Tour at night, lunch in a gorgeous and historic home, and spending the evening floating down the Savannah River on a River Boat! The few days we had together in Savannah, GA were fun, educational, and 100% valuable to my small business.

I HIGHLY recommend making the time, carving it out on your calendar, to attend a future Elevate Workshop!”
