“Why Marketing Misses the Mark and
How You Can Create Marketing
Messages with Integrity”
Dear Mission-driven Entrepreneur or Business Owner,
I’m delighted that you’re here because you are exactly where you need to be if you’ve ever struggled to turn your big mission into a marketing message that feels right. I know without a doubt my mission is to give women like you a voice to turn your ideas into something that matters. While I don’t exclude men, the majority of my clients are wildly diverse entrepreneurial women with heart-based, conscious businesses. Many are coaches, authors, teachers speakers, artists, healers and light-workers and while you are wildly different there is a common thread. That common thread is a BIG mission.
Often you struggle with creating a palatable marketing message that doesn’t feel icky or too salesy. The good news is I can help. I’m often told that I hold the vision for where you are going before you even see it yourself. I also have the gift of capturing your voice in a way that feels right to you, says what you want to say without hard sell tactics, and most importantly, connects with your ideal clients.
Before we get into the program overview, I recommend listening to this interview
This powerful conversation on The Brand Journalism Advantage podcast hosted by Phoebe Chongchua will give you an overview of these philosophies and a better idea of how you can move away from poking pain points and manipulation to find your voice.
Here’s The Rest of the Story and WHY Marketing With Integrity is So Important for YOUR Business
I’ve been working with words, marketing and advertising for literally as long as I can remember. When I was a small child, we only received signals from two television stations and watched the tube on an old black and white model with modified rabbit ear antennas. My exposure to advertising and marketing was limited to the two television channels and few radio stations. I can still remember watching commercials at a very young age and thinking “I can do better than that.”Even then advertisers and marketers were missing the mark (and even as a child, I could see that). Fast-forward to today and I’ve been successfully running WriteOnCreative.com and in business for myself since 2003 (you do the math; I’m not a numbers person). The success of my business has largely occurred because I’m in-tune with current trends and intuitively know what’s working and what’s not working. AND, I challenge the norm. Just because “everyone” is doing something doesn’t mean it’s the right thing to do – especially for highly creative and conscious entrepreneurs. That’s why it’s important to create marketing messages with integrity based on your own values. Here’s what I’ve found…
“There’s a NEW Marketing Model for Success!”
While copy (the written part of all of your marketing, promotional and advertising materials) is still the foundation of how you get your message out to the world, I challenge the age old industry adage that “Copy is King.” I’ve found that copy is actually QUEEN and content strategy is KING and together they are the key to creating strong and effective results. Even the best copy in the world won’t work if you don’t have a strategy in place. Think of strategy as masculine energy and copy as feminine energy – both are vital but if they are not working together it’s a struggle. In fact, many copywriters and marketers underestimate the importance of strategy and that’s often why campaigns fail.
I’ve also found that the traditional copywriting formula of “Problem. Agitate. Solve.” isn’t resonating with women. Women are looking for solutions to their challenges. What’s really working is the new copywriting formula of “Challenge. Solution. Invitation.”
In the traditional formula we highlight the issue, we agitate that issue to focus on the pain points (when was the last time being agitated prompted you to make a buying decision?) and then we solve the problem. I believe people are in enough pain. We don’t need to be agitated to make a decision. In fact, especially for women, when someone acknowledges our challenges (and really understands where we’re coming from), provides a helpful solution and extends a friendly invitation, we’re more likely to take action. Nothing truly flows when it comes from a place of pain and fear…
“The #1 Barrier to Marketing Success
For Women is FEAR!”
Not only do pain and fear cause energetic blocks that cause us not to buy, they also cause us to feel stuck when creating our marketing messages. When there is uncertainty it’s very difficult to create a clear, compelling and succinct message. I believe it comes down to societal programming especially for women. I actually wrote an article about this. Did you know that the old Victorian saying, “Children should be seen and not heard,” was originally coined specifically for female children? While doing research for one of my published articles I discovered this. It wasn’t too surprising. We’ve been taught to be humble, not brag, downplay our accomplishments, etc. So, when we’re really stepping into something new and becoming the change we want to see in the world it can feel a bit counter intuitive. For women especially, we are also making history. We’re starting more businesses and often we don’t have role models to follow so we have to overcome fear and step into leadership.
“Overcoming Fear, Finding Your Voice
and Making a Difference!”
I invite you to take a moment and pause to think about the fact that as women we are making history. We have to be leaders. The world is changing and what we are doing today has really never been done before. This means we have to create new models for success. You have to find your voice and quit blindly following others. In fact, I want you to say this out loud right now, “Mentors are not Gods!” If you follow others without question you lose yourself. I know, I’ve been guilty of it, too.
Many of us are navigating unchartered territory and creating new business models that didn’t exist before. Plus, we’re inundated with so many marketing messages every day and there are many so called “gurus” who we could follow it can become overwhelming and we second guess ourselves (that goes back to societal and familial programming). We really need to listen to ourselves. I invite you to take a moment right now and give yourself permission to do things differently and lead the way. In fact, please say this out loud, “I am making history. I give myself permission to do things differently and to lead the way.”
“Find Your Voice, Declare Your Niche
and Create Your Marketing Messages
With Integrity to Really Make a Difference!”
There are three key areas you must address when it comes to creating marketing messages with integrity and all of them have to do with clarity.
You must be clear about your true voice. This is based on your values, mission and your story.
We must be absolutely clear about our values, our personal mission and our business mission. It’s also helpful to get clear on our vision. We need to know what matters most to us (values), we need to be clear about what we do in the world (mission) and we need to have a big picture perspective on how we want to facilitate change (vision). This is true personally and professionally. I revisit these three areas at least once a year and have a process that helps me get really clear. Finally, you must find your true voice and tell your story in a way that truly connects with your ideal clients. This section of the self-study program will help you:
- Identify or revisit your core values so you’re absolutely CLEAR about what truly motivates you and how you can best be of service to others
- Get a solid foundation to create your personal mission statement and business mission statement based on your values so everything is energetically congruent
- Revisit, craft and create your story (facts tell, stories sell — by BEing who you truly are and sharing your TRUTH you’ll easily attract your ideal clients
“Lisa’s advice to make my bio personal by adding my success story in a natural way, just like I would talk to a friend, was the difference I had been looking for. Her process took my boring bio from something you read to something you remember (and want to know more about). Lisa’s copy coaching helped me find a natural ways to include my story and it RADICALLY changed my approach. With her creative insight people now know I started my empire with one cupcake. I am a firm believer that learning to tell your story is an important part of creating your marketing message. Lisa’s guidance made it fun and easy.”

You must be clear about who you are meant to serve. This means clearly identifying your ideal client (no more waffling – yes, YOU!)
It takes courage to DECLARE your purpose (aka niche) and it’s a process that takes time and evolves. You must honor the process. Often fear gets in the way of making the right decision and really owning what we’re here to do. You could be afraid that you’ll exclude someone by only choosing to work with ideal clients or you might even fear that you’re not doing “it” right, whatever it is. You could be coming from a place of fear because you need money and you believe if you turn down business (even if it’s working with a less than ideal client) you’ll miss out on something. You could also be afraid of paving a new way of doing things when really, that IS what you are here to do as a woman leader. Another common fear is the fear of losing people from your subscriber database when you refine your message (this is actually a really good thing). The good news is once you push past these fears, you can attract ideal clients with ease. This section of the self-study course will help you:
- Be confident in your story, what you value and who you’re meant to “play” with in this world
- Identify not-so-ideal clients and ways you may have been sacrificing yourself by serving, working with or collaborating with the WRONG people
- Create a clear profile of your ideal clients so you’re attracting the right people instead of chasing the wrong clients (or simply accepting them because it pays the bills)
“It used to concern me when people would unsubscribe from my ezine (email list) until Lisa gave me a great insight on this: When you are clear on your message and who you are serving then the fear of loss is no longer… you can’t “lose” what you really didn’t have the in first place. Meaning that if the folks who unsubscribe from your list aren’t your ideal client then you haven’t “lost” anything when they unsubscribe. And that opens up the space for those to come who ARE your ideal clients!
Lisa will help you gain the clarity and inner courage to speak your message and know that those who are your ideal clients will connect with your message.”
~ JoLynn Braley
You must be clear about the new marketing model for success. This means you need to be familiar with the techniques to create your marketing message that are working today.
Creating your marketing messages with integrity doesn’t have to be a struggle. In fact, you can learn how to write compelling copy to truly connect with your ideal clients BUT you have to understand the formulas. Even if you think you’re going to outsource to a copywriter, it’s important to understand the new marketing model for success as well as tried and true formatting techniques that are proven to help you connect with the people you are meant to serve and build relationships. Once you understand and know how to use these easy techniques you can infuse your true voice to create messages that really connect with your ideal clients.
It’s time to step up and be heard. The bottom line is you must find your voice, be clear about who you’re meant to serve and marketing techniques that work in order to create marketing messages with integrity. This section of the self-study program will help you:
- Understand why many of the traditional marketing and copywriting formulas perpetuate buyers remorse instead of build lasting client relationships
- Create marketing messages with integrity using the simple 3-step “Challenge. Solution. Invitation.” formula to help you get better results
- Learn ways to format and craft your story in the form of copy and marketing messages to connect with more clients
“We each have a unique voice, message and mission and what I believe we all need in order to succeed in this new business paradigm is to learn HOW to find our authentic voice, HOW to be clear on our ideal client and HOW to write authentic marketing messages with integrity that resonate with the truth of who we are. When Lisa Manyon and I connected I was so relieved to hear her fresh approach to marketing, especially her “Challenge. Solution. Invitation” copywriting formula that feels much better than the traditional “Problem. Agitate. Solve” formula. . You see Lisa’s studied with many of the marketing masters and worked with clients to develop her own style of marketing and messaging. Her mission is to give you a voice to turn your ideas into something that matters. When she told me she works with wildly talented heart-centered, female entrepreneurs who have a BIG MISSION and are struggling to turn their mission into a palatable marketing message I was delighted. And, that’s why I recommend her How To Create Marketing Messages with Integrity program.”

“Your Voice Matters and You Can Make a Difference When You Create Marketing Messages With Integrity”
If you want your marketing to work, you must create marketing messages with integrity. In order to be truly successful in business in takes a clear vision, strategic planning and consistent marketing. You’ve probably heard me say this before but I’ll say it again. “A funny thing happens when you don’t market… nothing.”
The two traits of successful businesses that I see most often (regardless of the type of business) are consistency and communication. To truly choose success, you must incorporate both into your overall strategy
1. Consistency = staying power. When you create a strong brand and platform and continue to be true to that you’ll gain trust, brand recognition and people will know you are serious about your business. This is where your true voice comes into play.
2. Communication = relationships. Relationships are key to business success because without them you don’t have customers or clients. It’s important to communicate with customers and potential customers to let them know how you can be of service to them. AND that communication needs to be done in a way that connects and gets results.
Successful businesses incorporate consistency and communication in all facets of their business. Businesses that fail generally don’t have plans, lack consistency and don’t let potential customers know what they have to offer.
It’s easy to assume that people understand what you offer and know what is available but the truth of the matter is, they don’t and won’t unless you tell them and show them how you can be of service. It’s equally important to be consistent in what you offer so you don’t confuse people. And you MUST know who your ideal clients are in order to craft marketing messages that resonate.
That’s why I’m so passionate about this program. I know you’ll find great value in what I’ve created for you. How to Create Marketing Messages with Integrity: Attract Your Ideal Clients with Your Authentic Voice will give you the tools and confidence you need to step into your brilliance.

“Marketing With Integrity is a great program that helped me to get really clear about who my ideal client is, allowed me to see where I was not speaking my truth about what I offer my clients and inspired me to see a new vision for my business. I love how Lisa broke down the process into 3 recordings that not only taught me how to shift my perspective on my message, but listening to Lisa’s own story I had “aha” moments about my own journey that I never felt were significant to my bio until now. I noticed after listening to the program and doing the exercises my energy shifted and I was excited about revising my message and my bio! Lisa truly has a gift and understands her clients struggles in a gentle way that moves you out of fear and into action.”
