Tap Into New Markets, Build Brand Authority, and Grow Your Revenue with Sustainable, Values-Aligned Partnership Marketing and Collaborations

For Conscious Businesses Ready To Win and Grow Together

COUNt me in

Right now—

It’s increasingly harder to cut through the social media noise and stand out in your industry. Your brand message is strong, but it’s getting lost in the never-ending stream of online information.

Even those paid ads you’re investing in aren’t giving you the returns they used to

But at the same time…you don’t exactly have extra time (or energy) to put toward another marketing channel.

Maybe you’re a solopreneur deep in the (sea)weeds of the day-to-day runnings of your business –and adding one more piece to the marketing puzzle just isn’t in your bandwidth.

Or maybe you’re a small-to-medium-sized company with a small but mighty marketing team, and handling social media algorithms, email campaigns, website strategy, and SEO blogs is already stretching them thin.

You know you need to be more proactive (rather than reactive) in your marketing strategy, but you’re feeling stuck, overwhelmed, and distracted by all the marketing tasks and strategies out there.

Sound familiar?

Now, imagine unlocking a new marketing channel without the stress and overwhelm of having to learn a new platform or plan out content months in advance

We’re talking about a marketing strategy that can…

Generate more revenue and sales

Reach new target audiences

Build brand authority as an industry leader

Establish trust with your growing audience

Create a consistent lead generation

Grow your brand awareness

Amplify (and accelerate) your mission

Produce long-form content to share across all of your marketing channels

Develop mutually beneficial relationships with like-minded business owners

This is all possible for you,

You can grow your conscious business, brand, or nonprofit with intentional partnerships that align with your values

  • Erika was amazing to help me build my brand, build partnerships, and gain email subscribers and social media followers. She helped me coordinate two giveaways to build exposure and partnerships and was able to get me some media coverage like internet magazines, podcasts, radio mentions and pop up events. I'm felt like I was her only client because of the amount of attention she gave me. She also is very communicative and responsive whenever I needed something or had questions. I highly recommend Nadi Marketing to anyone looking to build their brand and partnerships!

Not sure what partnership marketing is? Here’s a quick definition:

🫱🏿‍🫲🏽 Partnership marketing is when two organizations join together in a strategic collaboration to leverage each other’s strengths, open up new opportunities, and achieve mutually beneficial goals.

You might already be thinking (and we can confirm) —

Partnerships & Collaboration is not your typical marketing approach

It’s actually a very underutilized marketing channel– yet it offers tons of unique benefits for conscious businesses, nonprofits, and brands that strategically join forces to win and grow together while doing good for people and the planet.

Research by McKinsey & Company predicts that by 2025, nearly 1/3rd of total global sales will come from ‘ecosystems’ (cross-industry players working together to create solutions) —i.e., partnerships and collaborations.

At Nadi Marketing, we support socially and environmentally responsible businesses like yours to identify, build, and foster key brand partnerships and bring business owners together to collaborate on a central goal for maximum impact.

  • Erika is always cool, calm, and collected, which makes her the perfect person to oversee stressful events. She was a lifesaver during the grand opening of my grocery store; making sure I aware of the time, guided me through all the activities we had planned for that day, arranged the local business district to have a ribbon cutting ceremony, arranged catering, and even brought out local news stations to cover the event. Could not have done it without her!

Retainer-Based Testimonial From The Mighty Bin

We can't thank Nadi Marketing enough for the incredible work they've done in managing and growing our partnerships since before we even opened our doors. We hired Erika right before our grand opening, essentially adding her to our fledgling team. She built our partnerships from absolute scratch, starting with showcasing our vendors and planning co-marketing campaigns.

Erika has secured earned media features for us across print, online, podcast, and TV outlets more times than we can count, including multiple TV news stories around our grand opening. This exposure, along with community events and smart social media coordination, catapulted our Instagram audience to over 7.5K followers and drove an exponential increase in sales, email signups, and overall presence.

We used to think we couldn't possibly juggle running daily operations AND building partnerships. But with Nadi as an extension of our tiny team, we can focus on the shop. Erika handles the rest - showcasing vendors, planning creative campaigns and securing impactful community events, coordinating communications, and bringing widespread exposure to our small business. We couldn't ask for a better partner than Nadi - their work has been absolutely instrumental to our meteoric growth and success. - Isabelle DeMillan, Founder of The Mighty Bin
