Driven by connection and relationships, Kate has yet to spend a dime on advertisements and succeeds purely on word of mouth.

3-Sentence Case Studies:

1.) A regionally-focused medical device company was offered the opportunity to be on Shark Tank and called Kate-Madonna to help with website conversion, landing pages and a social campaign. Over 322% growth and 3 months later, the device company has now moved into national pharmacies and local stores- but not because of Shark Tank. The owner turned down the sharks!

2.) 89% growth in the first 6 months during a recession: Brigham Group Staffing hired Kate-Madonna to come on-site to help with a re-branding campaign. Within 2 years, Brigham Group sold at an extensive profit and the owner retired. Social Growth of over 600% helped align the company with a potential buyer after relationships, press and placement had already been established.

3.) When the Minnesota Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome needed specialized local attention for their “0 Four 9″ campaign, Kate-Madonna made it happen during the MNState Fair with silent models and a striking conversation on pregnancy and alcohol leading to national media attention and donation growth of 30%. The campaign is still running and has been the most successful for the company to-date.
