Strategy Consultancy: Marketing | Digital | Branding

Hi, I'm Katja Bartholmess.  I'm the principal strategist at Gimme Gorgeous and work with CEOs, CMOs, and agencies on marketing, brand building, and business development strategies. I'm based in NYC and work with clients in the U.S., the UK, and Germany.

How do we work together?

Most brand clients come to me after an epiphany: Our brand could do better! Why are we not doing better? We really should be doing better! 

Perhaps the market has evolved and a bit of catch up is in order. Perhaps your brand has become less defined over time and a repositioning is what's needed. Perhaps a new and lucrative audience deserves to be activated. Perhaps something else entirely will help make a difference for you.

That's when I crack my knuckles and get to work. And it usually goes like this:

  • First, I get everyone involved: leadership, marketing, product, sales. In a collaborative workshop, we'll shine a light on the status quo of your brand and business and formulate goals that the whole organization can rally around. 
  • Then, I analyze current trends and relevant data, work with market and social research and generate original insights, unleash big ideas, and plot unexpected and effective paths to reach your goals.
  • Lastly, I onboard your in-house teams (or bring in trusted service providers and agencies) with clear and evocative briefs that guide creatives to unlock their best work and execute flawlessly.

I'm interested in true partnerships around big goals, deep insights, and a clear path to better results. Let me know if you are too. Referencing a mutual contact guarantees my attention.
