Go from unknown to Un-ignorable
It's 2023. People wanna buy from people—not faceless brands.
Un-ignorable is a 28-day group challenge for founders who are ready to step into the spotlight and build an un-ignorable personal brand.
Learn how to build an audience of future buyers.
The next cohort starts October 11th, 2023.
Enrollment closes at April 5th at 1159PM PT.100
Be seen as the go-to expert in your space
Build an audience of future buyers
No cringy templates or short-term hacks
Building an audience is f*cking hard
You’ve likely spent hours painstakingly crafting Twitter threads, LinkedIn posts, or YouTube videos you hoped would go viral…
But instead got 4 likes.
Maybe you’ve tried copying competitors, using “proven templates”, engagement hacking, and jumping on trends and yet… 👉👇
Copying others and hoping it’ll work for you is a bad strategy.
But there is a better way…
Un-ignorable is a 28-day group challenge
You’ll learn how to create thumb-stoppingly good content.
Content that makes YOU an un-ignorable expert in your niche.
Whether you want to attract more clients or customers, diversify income streams, or build demand for a more scalable offer.
Building a personal brand is THE surefire way to make it happen.
We won’t just tell you WHAT works. We’ll teach you WHY it works based on timeless psychology principles. And you’ll apply everything you learn with support from us and other smart marketers and founders.
Is Un-ignorable right for you?
Has imposter syndrome or self-doubt kept you from getting started?
Struggling to overcome the "cold start" problem (getting traction when you're starting from zero)?
Have you worked for hours on a piece of content only to get 2 likes?
Are you a solo founder or marketing-team-of-one struggling to publish content consistently without a team to hold you accountable?
Have you had moments of success, only to see the results vanish into thin air as your go-to tactics become ineffective?
Are you interested in building an audience but NOT if it means resorting to click-baity, spammy methods?
Already have a decent audience but unable to generate any revenue from it?
If you can relate to any of these, Un-ignorable is for you
It’s time to become Un-ignorable
Un-ignorable isn’t another online course that you’ll buy and forget about—it’s a call-to-arms.
We’re headed into a recession. The people and brands that survive and thrive in a downturn economy are the ones that:
- Deeply understand their buyers
- Know how to earn their attention
- Can turn attention into intention (ie. attract future buyers and drive sales)
If you want to build an audience the smart way (rather than creating clickbait that generates followers but not trust) — Un-ignorable was built for you.
How it works
Focus on progress, not perfection
In audience building, perfectionism, and imposter syndrome keep most people stuck. But not you. Not anymore.
In Un-ignorable, we’ll push you to publish consistently and learn from your audience. You’ll figure out what works, gain real traction, and build real confidence.
Learn the WHY behind the HOW
There are countless audience building courses out there. Most are taught by creators who built a large following and explain HOW they did it.
Un-ignorable focuses on the WHY behind the HOW. You'll learn the timeless psychological principles for viral content.
Bite-sized video lessons and exercises. Spread out over 28 days.
Most courses take pride in selling you “80 hours of video content.” Not us. Each day, you’ll watch short video lessons and complete an exercise to action what you learn.
Un-ignorable is designed to produce results— not keep you busy.
Deeply understand your audience
The best marketers aren’t the ones who know the most about channels or tactics. They know the most about... people.
It’s time to get clear about who to serve, finally. And you’ll do audience research needed to understand what really makes people tick, click, and buy. No more guessing. Lots more results.
Peer support & collaboration
You’ll work directly with a cohort of peers. Learn from each other. Exchange feedback. Help amplify each other on social media. And hold each other accountable.
We promise: you won’t feel alone anymore.
Competitions & prizes
Everything feels like work nowadays. Let’s change that. You and your cohort will engage in some friendly competition. Completing challenges and winning prizes along the way.
The prizes? They’re a secret (and they’re awesome).

What you'll learn
Get F*ckin' Going
The top 2 reasons people don't succeed with audience building is they never actually get going, or they give up quickly. This is not a passive course. We'll cover the importance of publishing early and publishing often.
It's time to get your head in the game. You'll identify the fears and challenges that have been holding you back. And you'll learn how to "hack" your brain to push past those barriers and achieve your goals.
We live in a noisy, noisy world. To stand out, you need to do less—not more. You must occupy a single, unique space in your buyer's mind. You'll learn how to identify your space. Or as we like to call it, "your one-ness."
The more specific you are about who you target, the easier it will be to craft content, messages, and offers that resonate with them. You'll identify your best-fit buyers and learn to think differently about why they really buy.
Your Cheat Codes
We've all seen new creators pop up and grow huge audiences seemingly overnight. Is their content great? Usually. But is it that much better than everyone else's? Nope. They know the cheat codes to explosive audience growth. After this lesson, so will you.
Finding Content Inspiration
You've likely heard the expression, "great artists steal." Well, so do great audience-builders. You'll learn the RIGHT way to steal. That is, how to find inspiration from leaders in your space and ELEVATE their work to make something uniquely yours.
Face it. Without a snappy hook, no one will pay attention to your content (no matter how good it is). In this lesson, you'll learn the HOW and WHY of writing irresistible, scroll-stopping hooks your audience will love.
The 7 Fs of Attention
Dive deeper into the seven driving forces of attention. Or, as we call them, the 7 Fs. The best creators are masters at leveraging the 7 F’s to create un-ignorable content. After these 7 eye-popping lessons, you’ll know how to become un-ignorable too.
Audience Building Tactics
We'll go deep on all the latest tactics on how to get your un-ignorable content in front of more people. From leveraging AI tools, to avoiding reach killers, to copywriting tips, and strategic commenting—you'll learn how to set yourself up for success.
Double-Down Plan & Content Generation System
You’ll analyze your posts and choose where you plan to double down.You’ll choose one topic, one audience, and one channel to focus on for the next 100 posts— focus is key to growth. We’ll then help you build a Content Generation System that makes it effortless to produce hundreds of content ideas on demand.

Questions we're most often asked.
I’m starting from scratch – will this work for me?
We call this the “cold start” problem. How can you build an audience if you're publishing content to an audience of zero (ok fine, maybe an audience of 1 – thanks, mom!).
It can feel like an insurmountable barrier. And for many new creators, it is.
But that’s the beauty of Un-ignorable. You’re not just learning how to build an audience. Your cohort peers will also be your first fans. You’ll be there to engage with and share each other’s content. You’ll have a built-in hype-team from day one.
We'll also help you identify your audience and topic, as well as teach you how to create un-ignorable, intention building content for them.
When does it start?
The next cohort will start October 11th, 2023. More details will be released soon. Be sure to hop on the waitlist so you don't miss a thing.
Am I a fit for Un-ignorable?
Un-ignorable is best suited for entrepreneurs, marketers, and creators who want to build a personal brand.
To get the most out of the program, all participants should have base-level marketing knowledge and experience. If you have zero marketing experience, this program isn’t right for you yet. Come back when you’ve got a little marketing knowledge under your belt.
What’s the schedule and time commitment?

Is this just another audience building course? I’ve seen a ton of those lately.
So have we. And that’s a big reason we felt compelled to create Un-ignorable.
Most courses are long self-serve video lessons.
Some guru shows you the exact tactics, templates and “formulas” they’ve used. Actionable – sure. The problem? It leads to thousands of copycats. People using the exact same tactics, quickly making them ineffective for everyone. Worse, these courses don’t teach you WHY those methods work. Without a deep understanding of the WHY, you’re completely trapped. Totally dependent on the next big “hack” to get any results.
Un-ignorable is different. It’s a cohort-based challenge designed to help you level up. You’ll learn what to do, how to do it, and—most importantly—why it works.
You’ll have questions along the way. You’ll want feedback from your peers and from your instructors. And you’ll want to feel confident you’re doing it right. That’s exactly what you get.
The best part? A little friendly competition will push you to overcome past stumbling blocks while making a bunch of new friends along the way.
I’m still figuring out what I want to sell. Should I wait to join?
No. This challenge will help you to figure out what you’re uniquely great at and how to leverage your One-ness to build a tribe of followers and future buyers.
When you get this part right, magical things can happen. Case in point:
Who is NOT a fit?
Un-ignorable is not a good fit for people who want to grow a company account (e.g., your company's branded Twitter or YouTube account, or corporate profile page on LinkedIn).
People relate to people. Which is why the principles and tactics we teach in the course are specifically designed to help you build a following underneath your personal brand (whether you currently have one or not), not your company's brand (or the one you work for).
But the goal of your personal brand is to help your company get more customers. You become the relatable person they trust behind the brand.
The best companies these days encourage their entire team to build up their personal brands. It helps them and it helps the company.

Which tier is right for me?
We offer two Un-ignorable plans to choose from, depending on individual factors such as budget and learning style.
Here's the TL;DR of each tier:
- Essentials ($799): You learn best with others. In this tier, you get direct access to the instructors via live weekly workshops, as well as two office hour Q&A sessions. You’ll also tap the full power of the community. You’ll be placed into a “squad” of ~20 fellow participants. Your squad will hold you accountable, provide feedback, and be your thought partners. They’ll also be your earliest fans when you start publishing content. Essentials members also get access to two live “fast feedback” sessions where you’ll break out into small groups to push through barriers, exchange learnings, and brainstorm new tactics and content ideas.
- VIP ($1,699): The whole shebang. If you absolutely must make audience-building work, this is the tier for you. You get everything from the Live Learner plan, PLUS direct, 1:1 support from the instructors. This includes two 30-minute coaching calls with Katelyn and Neal, an in-depth review of one piece of content, an audit of your social media profile, and access to a live, small group coaching session.
