Whether it’s by fighting with a website template in vain, putting off building your social media because you just don’t know what to post, or scratching your head because that Canva logo you designed isn’t attracting your target market…chances are you’ve experienced that “I can’t do this anymore” moment.
We’ve all been there. And I get it. Truth is: DIYing your brand presence is fine...until it’s not.
And I’ve got some good news: you’ve cried into your wine at 2am for the last time. When you’re ready for branding rooted in art and strategy that converts browsers into buyers, strategic posts that boost engagement, and a website that has you singing your URL from the rooftops - bring me in.
I’m Lauren Salonek, and I started Morning Cup of Media because I saw a gap in the creative market. I noticed some people had stunning websites and branding, but it didn’t transfer into their social media channels and vice versa. I believe you can (and should) have both, and my background in UX, graphic design, and communication made me uniquely qualified to fill that space.
But more than anything, I consider myself your #1 hype woman in business, because I know how powerful it is to have someone believe in and support your vision. I’m on a mission to bring small business dreams to life in big ways. You ready?
