We Believe

We work with some of the most heart-centered, innovative people on the planet. Those who really want to course-correct humanity socially, economically and environmentally. NGNG is the engine to power their voice, growth and impact.
When these authors, speakers, or entrepreneurs become serious about wanting to make a difference… they often turn to online business professionals to design their marketing plan and build their online platform, in order to capture the attention of those they are compelled to serve.
However… what you will discover over time is: digital ‘automation’ (as it is taught mainstream today) is the biggest threat to your business and impact.
Consumers experience information overload, decision-fatigue and end up feeling like a herd of moo’ing cows being walked through a funnel.
Your prospects deserve better.
To win the attention war online, you must learn how to authentically develop meaningful connection with each individual who learns about your work to scale your influence and impact. This is the belief upon which all of NGNG’s strategy, systems and services are created.

Services

Book Launches

The biggest mistakes authors make is not giving themselves enough time to launch, not hiring an expert strategist with a proven track record, and overall short-changing themselves and not seeing what’s really possible with their book.

Websites

We have proven that by thinking through your customer journey first, we can build a great website that not only has a design you can be proud of, but is built with strategy to attract in qualified buyers who are primed to buy from you. (And don’t worry, it’s not going to cost you an arm and a leg!) If you want to win the attention war online, you'll need a website that you can be proud of AND gets you results.

Marketing

If you struggle with not having a clear marketing plan, trying to do it all yourself, the pains of technology and changing trends, trying to find good help, needing more leads, and certainly never having enough time to ‘do it all’… then our proven marketing operation is for you (a blend of content marketing, podcasting and live streaming). We train your team how to get ALL of your weekly marketing done for you!
