Stop counting


You can’t be a leader without followers. That’s what everyone says, right?
And when it comes to social media followers and email subscribers — bigger is ALWAYS better, isn’t it?

But what if…

you are so focused on getting followers that it’s a struggle to show up consistently and actually connect with the ones who matter most?

What if…

you found followers –
but they don’t seem to stick around?

And what if…

it feels like you have been building on social media FOREVER – but you don’t have the numbers, clients or community to show it? 

Stop counting


You need a platform. That’s what everyone says, right?
You need social media followers and email subscribers — the bigger the better.

But what if…

you are so focused on building your platform that it’s a struggle to get on that platform and connect with your audience?

What if…

you found an audience –
but they don’t seem to stick around?

And what if…

it feels like you have been building FOREVER – but you don’t have the numbers to show for it? 


As a COMMUNITY STRATEGIST who gets it, I can help.

I know what it’s like to be OVERWHELMED by all the advice out there on building community.  DO THIS! DON’T DO THAT!  I’ve found one way to build a meaningful community … stop counting followers and start connecting with the followers who count. You CAN get more followers who get you. You just need a guide and a plan.

Don’t just attract a LARGER audience.
Attract a CONNECTED one.

Find your perfect person…the super-fan who can’t wait for your next offer, blog post, social media update or speaking engagement. The kind of person who won’t just consume your content, but happily share it with others — because they are invested in the movement you are leading.



As a social media strategist who specializes in online community design and management, I support experts like you grow their groups and get results without feeling frazzled.


I write. I speak. And I’m a social media coach. I help communicators just like you build platforms that attract the right readers who stay engaged with you for years to come.


I hired Tonya because it felt like she knew my audience and their pain points and secret desires better than I did! She is SO darn knowledgeable, not simply in her chosen spot — thriving online communities — but in most things strategy and marketing.
