Come for the opportunities.
Stay for the community.
Freelancing doesn’t have to be lonely. The EM Community was created to help independent marketers support one another. We connect you with consulting opportunities, and we also provide you with the support you need to make each engagement a success, and that includes membership in our community. You’ll be welcomed warmly by people who know marketing, know freelancing, and are on the same journey as you are.
The number one lead source for most independents is their professional network.
Help each other
do great work
There’s power in saying, “I don’t know, but let me consult my network.”
Ask questions, give advice, and contribute to the conversation.
Find your people
Need a referral for a graphic designer? Looking for A/B testing tools? Want to know how to price an engagement? Get trusted referrals and advice from marketing consultants with first hand knowledge and experience. Share your own expertise so people can feel confident referring you. With over 400 consultants from every marketing discipline, there’s sure to be someone who can help with whatever your current challenge is. Here’s how to connect to the community and find your people.
Connect regularly with a small group face to face in your area or online for accountability, validation, encouragement, and practical advice.
We bring the community together a few times a year to learn and have fun together. It’s a great way to get to know people and grow your network.
Slack is the hub for the community. Drop in for EM news and events. Ask questions, share your expertise — and your latest fun obsession!
Several of our consultants are also business coaches who are intimately familiar with the challenges of growing a consulting business, and offer their services to EMers at discounted rates.
Add a fellow marketing consultant to your network every week by signing up for Donut, a Slack matchmaking app for professional networking online.
Share your expertise by offering a lunch and learn online or in person. Stay up to date by attending lunch and learns put on by your peers.
