(besides your family and friends from your Networking groups)...
THEY CAN'T BUY FROM YOU.
But I hear you already thinking to yourself...
"I'm doing all the things, posting everywhere, and nothing is working!"
"I don’t have time for this!”
“I have no idea where to start, and I’m overwhelmed with all the technology required!”
Let me reassure you…
I know you are busy.
But I also know that you WANT to make 2022 the year you really started building a professional online presence for your business, and generate a consistent stream of clients.
And I know that to make sure you actually create something that is going to be successful, profitable and impactful… You don’t need a whole ton more info…
You need help defining the important elements of a successful online presence and support on getting it done!
That’s why I created the
Here's what's not inside:
I will not overwhelm you with hacks or quick information.
Or waste hours of your valuable time with tons of theory.
Instead, I am serving up the exact steps you need to take (and exactly how to do them).
Plus, I’m including a weekly call with me
every step of the way.
I will be there to help hold you accountable and I expect you to do your weekly homework (yes, I’m going to make sure you get this done!) and also to support and motivate you through this journey!
I've created the best, simplest and most effective Marketing and Mindset Incubator out there to help you to build your presence online with a system you can follow, after you finish my program, while growing yourself in the process.
So, you can have more time, more freedom and more revenue... and more people can have access to your unique brilliance!
So, if you are ready to create a professional and attractive online presence and actually become a PROFESSIONAL in your industry, a LEADER for yourself and create an audience while attracting the RIGHT CLIENTS, then this is for you!
Here's what some of my students have to say about it:
The lessons are superb, they’re exactly what I needed. She lays out a pretty clear path forward on each lesson, and her tutorials have great tips on what to do, and she takes us along on a step-by-step basis, which really helps- it helped me at not getting overwhelmed by all the things that need to get done. Halfway through the course I already had a long list of accomplishments that I wouldn’t be able to accomplish by my own.
- Bruce Hurd, Writing Coach
Before I found the DMA, I was all over the place, trying everything and not sticking to anything, I’d go from Facebook, to Instagram, back to LinkedIn... and after a year of that I realized I've got nowhere in building my business online. I had a vision, but there was no effective action. Now, in the two months I’m in the program, I feel that I already have a strategy, and having our weekly calls for help with any questions and accountability has been really helpful, because when I want to get off and do all kinds of other things, getting distracted, Simone keeps me accountable and focused on those building blocks, and it feels extremely supportive.
- Laurie Teixeira, Limiting Beliefs Coach
Simone is an absolute expert. She makes the seemingly overwhelming practical and easy. My online presence increased because of what she taught me. I highly recommend Simone to anyone who is looking to grow their business.
- Wanda Allen, Follow Up Strategies Coach
While other programs out there offer you pieces of the puzzle, I’ll show you the whole puzzle. Every week you'll watch one lesson that will guide you on exactly what to do. Each lesson has bite-size information and baby-step by baby-step clear assignments, & actionable to-dos, and some even have tutorials, with all my hacks to make the technology easy for you.
To help you through each lesson, I included worksheets and guides that are designed for immediate implementation, created in simple language – no tech jargons or millennial vocabulary here. I also share templates, swipe copy, and other time-saving resources and some of my own material that you can get inspired by and model.
Say goodbye to guesswork and hello to expert advice! The biggest reason people don’t finish a program like this, or are not able to implement the lessons, is that they don’t have the right feedback and frequent accountability. You get to talk to me weekly, get your questions answered and check-in with your progress, so you can take the next step!
All the copy of Marketing and Business materials we teach inside the DMA can be reviewed and we'll give feedback on what can be improved, not only in terms of verbiage but in terms of strategy and persuasive marketing language as well. With this session, I combine a copy editor work and a marketer expertise, to save you time and money, and make sure you have the best material to share with your audience.
Marketing & Mindset Group Calls are held weekly live. On this call, I share mindset practices and tools based on years of my own experiences and training in Metaphysics, Spirituality, Brain Science and other modalities that help with our entrepreneurial journey and transformation. When needed, I also bring updates in digital marketing that are most innovative and effective at the time.
Every social platform, every website strategy and tactics that we teach inside the DMA will be reviewed. After you take the lesson on a certain platform, I give you time to implement what you've learned and you get an extra time with me so I can audit that particular platform, and check if you're doing it the right way, and if not, give you feedback on what needs to be improved.
Whether it’s a roadblock you need advice on or you simply need someone to validate your progress… we have a private Facebook group for members only, where I will personally reply your questions within 24 hours! Plus, other entrepreneurs, with similar journeys to yours, may also pitch in with suggestions, ideas and support. This will ensure you aren’t stuck for too long and can get moving forward again ASAP.
The DIGITAL MARKETING ACADEMY Is Designed To Hold Your Hand (Virtually) Through The Process Of Building Your Online Presence & Your Marketing System, to turn your
FOLLOWERS INTO CLIENTS.
Everything You Need From Beginning To End Is Inside This Program - No Missing Pieces.
You know you have the knowledge to help people on your topic, but you're still struggling to get your business off the ground.
You know how important your online visibility is to your success but you just don't know how to get it or where on Earth to start.
In your crowded industry, you are struggling to establish an identity for yourself that enables you to stand out from everyone else.
Your online presence is unclear and incomplete even to you - so you already know you're leaving people confused as to what you do.
Or maybe you’ve gone to all kinds of workshops, sat on countless webinars, bought the 90 day courses, only to fail with actually implementing a plan, because there’s nobody to help you with the challenges!
And finally you, have a tightness in your chest, knowing that next month you’ll need to search for more clients again, using the same tactics that are not working.
If you said YES to any of the items above, you have a choice now!
You can continue wasting your precious timetrying to figue out yourself how to do this,
You can learn it and apply it week by week, and do it all with me by your side!
BUT, WHO ARE YOU, AND WHY SHOULD I LISTEN TO YOU, SIMONE?
Well, let me introduce myself!
My name is Simone Talarico Ross, and I'm a former Journalist turned Digital Marketer and Educator, and I help solopreneurs that feel overwhelmed with online marketing, and don’t know where to start building their visibility, to learn how to do that in a simple and paced way, so they can grow their business to 6-figures!
I’m the Founder and Owner of Simone & Company Academy, a platform where solopreneurs can find resources to learn how to create visibility online and generate the right leads, so they attract the clients they want to work with.
A big portion of my students are like me, in their late 40s and older. They come to me typically because they started a business after leaving a corporate job, or after the kids are grown, and really don’t know where to start in creating visibility online, and they feel like they’re challenged by the technology, but are committed to grow their business.
For years, I’ve been building my clients’ online presences, with social media management, funnel optimization and email marketing inside my Marketing Agency.
However, in my journey with my Marketing Agency I realized that many solopreneurs didn’t have enough knowledge of the current online marketing space even to know what to ask when they hired me!
There’s so much information out there and things change so rapidly, that it’s impossible for those not in the industry to keep up with all that! Plus, as I got more experienced and knowledgeable, the fees for my services were not always affordable for those starting to build their visibility online.
So, I decided it was time to share my knowledge with those who maybe can’t afford to pay me to do the work for them, but that understand that they too need to create their visibility online, if they want to attract more clients sustainably to their businesses.
That's how the DIGITAL MARKETING ACADEMY was born!
My students come to me typically overwhelmed from courses, webinars and workshops they’ve attended, which motivated them, but didn’t gave them the personal guidance on where to focus on. They don’t know where to start, and they are frightened by technology.
One of the words that are very common on testimonials from students that go through one of my courses is that I make the most complicated systems “simple”.
I always tell my students that nothing is super easy, but we can make it simple enough that anybody, without any technology knowledge, can do it.
THEY JUST NEED THE RIGHT GUIDANCE & SUPPORT!
IF YOU’RE ANYTHING LIKE ME WHEN I STARTED MY BIZ, YOU WANT TO…
• Be taken seriously as a professional and expert
• Make money AND an impact
• Work with clients you love and get paid the big bucks to do it
• Feel proud of your business
• Stop looking amateur and start building a credible brand
• Make this your full time money-making biz (instead of a side hobby)
If you didn’t want those things, you wouldn’t be reading this right now.
So here’s what I want...
I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT THE BUSINESS AND LIFE YOU WANT TO CREATE IS ABSOLUTELY POSSIBLE.
I want you to stop comparing yourself to others and focus, with laser vision, on your own success with tools that actually work.
And YES, this program works.
Module #1: BUILDING YOUR BUSINESS & MARKETING FOUNDATIONS
Here, we’re going to start digging deep on some of the most important foundations of your business and your brand: your vision, your target market and your marketing message.
Plus, you’re going to learn how to get useful and authentic testimonials, even if you haven’t worked with one client yet!
Module #2: ONLINE BRANDING
We’re tackling the big beast: Social Media! You’re going to learn all about posting, engagement and creating an audience on Facebook and Instagram, and how to use LinkedIn to get speaking engagements and to connect with the right people. You'll also learn how to create a presence on Twitter.
Module #3: VIDEO MARKETING
Here we’re going to dive into videos, the biggest and one of the most effective tools to build your reputation. You’re going to learn how to show up with CONFIDENCE (even if you've never been on camera before and it completely freaks you out).
I'll show you exactly what to do and we’ll have a safe space where you can share your first videos and get feedback directly from me!
Module #4: LEAD GENERATION BASICS
At this point, we’re going to start putting together your Marketing System. On this module, you’ll learn about lead generation, list building and how to create lead magnets to build the trust factor with your audience, and if you already have one, we'll start working on your live event.
I’ll walk you through free tools that are simple to use and that will save you loads of time in your lead generation.
Module #5: CREATING YOUR FUNNEL
This module is where you’ll learn how to create a marketing & sales funnel that will be automated, and will work without you, once is implemented, generating leads for you non-stop.
At this point, we’ll be working together for about 8 months, consistently, and you’ll be already familiar with all the process, so it’s going to be basically following the steps I’ll guide you through, and wait for the leads to come in!
Module # 6: SCALE YOUR BUSINESS WITH LIVE EVENTS
After you've been working during this time on your visibility, using all the strategies I've shared with you, and you're executing the tactics with videos and email marketing and now that you have your funnel built, you're ready to boost your lead generation. Right now, what's working are LIVE EVENTS and I'll help you create yours and learn how to drive registrations to it organically, without paid ads.
This module is constantly updated, because this is where I share with you the latest strategies that are working for you to generate leads, organically, and much faster.

You are no longer willing to wait…and want to accelerate your efforts now!
👉🏼This program is not for you if you are looking for a quick fix and are unwilling to do the work or make excuses for the lack of your results.
But if you are you ready to...
Confidently use your unique expertise and brilliance, build credibility and visibility in your niche, and become known as the go-to expert in your industry...
Attract more clients, make more money, and grow your business...with direction and guidance so that you don't have to go it alone...
Then you are ready for the DIGITAL MARKETING ACADEMY!
Every minute you waste not being clear on how to take effective action is costing you time, energy, potential profits and success! It is possible to work hard with EASE, I can show you how to!
QUESTION #1: "How long is the whole program?"
THE DIGITAL MARKETING ACADEMY lessons are supposed to be completed in one year. I recommend that you watch each lesson and execute the tasks of each one, one week at a time, and come to the weekly calls with me to get any questions answered to move you forward. Every lesson builds up on the previous one, so you can't move forward before finishing the last one. In saying that, this is your Academy and I know that some entrepreneurs are fast action takers and more familiar with technology, so they can implement some aspects of the program faster. It's a choice I leave to you. However, your growth as a business owner does come with time, so taking one lesson each week is going to help you take ownership of your business and grow as an entrepreneur and the CEO of your business in a much more holistic way.
QUESTION #2: "How much time will this take in my week?"
Every video is about 30 minutes long, and then you need to implement what you've learned. It will all depend on the topic and on your speed. You can expect to commit about 3-4 hours each week going through the entire homework, both to review my training and get your assignments done.
Obviously, more experienced entrepreneurs may take fewer hours, and newbies make take a little longer.
QUESTION #3: "When are the weekly calls, and when do they start?"
The private coaching calls are going to start right away, after you enroll. You'll be given about 10 minutes of private coaching, and you don't want to miss them.
We also have a live Mindset & Marketing group call every week where I train you on how to work on your limiting beliefs and alsobring updates in digital marketing that are most innovative and effective at the time.
However, no matter how good your intentions are of making every call, I know that life can get in the way sometimes. So, if you miss one, you have access to the recording calls, if you request it.
But things happen, and maybe you really can't make it to a call, and that’s why you can submit questions also in our Private Facebook Group. Even if you don’t get to jump on a call with me that week, you get your answer, and Take Action ;-)
QUESTION #4: "Are we going to have breaks to catch up?"
Yes, we always have 8 breaks that you can use to rest (you'll need them!), or you can also used to integrate what you've learned and catch up in the implementation of what you need to do. The breaks are scheduled, as follows:
President's Week Break
Memorial Week Break
Independence Week Break
Labor Week Break
Christmas / New Years Break
QUESTION #5: "What stage of business should I be in?"
I’ve helped my clients through the processes in this program build their Visibility Online and Market themselves who have been in business for no time at all. Literally they've just started their business.
And I've also helped other entrepreneurs who have been in business for 25 years, and simply didn’t know how to navigate the digital world!
It's not about the stage of business and it doesn't matter how long you've been in business, you have to be open to do what I’ll show you how to do, and to take imperfect action.
THE DIGITAL MARKETING ACADEMY is NOT for everyone, and I only want you to join if it’s a good fit. To put it simply, this program is for motivated entrepreneurs who are READY to take action to build their visibility online and take their business to the next level.
Looking to get-rich-quick? Sorry, you’re in the wrong spot. As a student, you’ll learn proven strategies to create a successful, profitable online business in 12 months, and it’s going to take some work, and it’s not going to happen overnight.
QUESTION #5.1: I haven't actually started my business yet... is it too early for me to join?
Well, that depends: do you already know what business you would like to start? The action steps I'll guide you through in the DIGITAL MARKETING ACADEMY are fantastic for getting a business off the ground and creating brand awareness, so you'll be fine as long as you have a business, or are planning to start one soon. However, if you don't even know what business you'd like to start, then you may be better off waiting to join, until you have a bit more clarity.
QUESTION #6: "How quickly will I see a return on my investment?"
I know that if you apply what you learn in this course, you will earn back at least 5X what you've invested during the next year.
The only reason I cannot guarantee results is because it's up to you to implement what you learn. With that said, I am dedicated to working closely with you to turn you into my next success story.
👉🏼 Also, this all depends on how well you know your market and if you've got a service they really, really want.
Regardless of your results, I cover all the steps you should take next, in order to rinse and repeat and improve.
The training inside the DIGITAL MARKETING ACADEMY has helped hundreds of my students create the life they dreamed of. It can do the same for you. All you have to do is show up, follow the lessons, be coachable and apply them to your business. The real question is, how committed are you to your own growth, business development, & transformation?
QUESTION #7: "What tools do I need?"
You and I will walk through all of that in more detail each week, and I won't overwhelm you.
For those further along, I share what tools can be used right away, and for those just starting out, I remove technology as a barrier and share with you how simple this can be done, with step by step guides and tutorials that you just follow and get things done.
QUESTION #8: “What’s your Refund Policy and Guarantee Policy?”
I am 100% committed to supporting you in increasing your cash flow and finally making marketing and money-making simple and consistent.
That being said...
This is a refund-free zone. Partially because I know that I show up 200% fully and give a million times more value, availability, and support than any other coach out there (trust me, I've invested A LOT in coaching and still do).
And so, YOU have to be willing to hold up your end of the deal. You must do the work!
Put in the effort, follow through with the system I teach you, and we will create success together. But, since I can't control if you will do the work and take action, I can't make you any promises or guarantees.
QUESTION #9: "What's a budget estimate I need to plan for Facebook ads?
On Module 5 you’ll learn how to generate leads, and how to create a funnel that will generate leads for you on auto-pilot, and one of the biggest sources of lead generation nowadays, with low cost, is Facebook Advertisement. So, on the DIGITAL MARKETING ACADEMYyou'll learn when it's effective and how to boost a post properly and how to manage leads coming from that. You will have to pay Facebook for that.
We won’t go too deep into it on this module, because for that, we would need a whole’nother year, but you’ll be able to start boosting posts effectively right away. And to start, you can go as low as $5 a day. We’ll be talking extensively about this on this module, before we even start boosting your posts, so you can feel safe and comfortable in investing on them, if you like.
QUESTION #10: "I'm technology-challenged, can I still do this?
Absolutely! The DIGITAL MARKETING ACADEMY is designed for those that haven’t had a chance to really understand how to navigate the digital world. Maybe you’ve worked in Corporate for a long time, where they had everything ready for you, or maybe you just started your business later in life, and didn’t get a chance to learn all the ins and outs of the online space as you grew up - no matter the reason, my step-by-step process will help you understand why you’re doing each part, on your pace. And, with your weekly live call with me, we’ll be able to go over any challenges you might be having on the computer.
