About The Clever Catalyst
The Clever Catalyst is a ragtag group of intelligent and highly capable human beings on a mission to change the way the world does business! The Clever Catalyst is small business marketing and support with a big business mindset. The Clever Catalyst is freedom, growth, and fulfillment. And The Clever Catalyst is unapologetically different.
We strongly believe business should stand for something. A business shouldn't put profits above relationships and a business should give back to the communities they serve as well as the team powering the business forward.
In 2019 Christi launched The Clever Catalyst after freelancing for a few years. She grew tired of helping businesses do business wrong and tired of "grinding" 24/7. She knew there was an easier way to business, a kinder way, a more authentic way. And so The Clever Catalyst was born.
Our Guiding Values
What Makes The Clever Catalyst Different?
There is a reason why the tagline for The Clever Catalyst is "Unapologetically Different"!
So much of what we do here and how more importantly HOW we do what we do here is different. And a lot of that is by design. The Clever Catalyst specializes in different.
We understand that the needs of your business are not the same as the needs of the business behind you in line. And even IF the needs were identical, your businesses were in the same industry and you served the same consumer base, the approaches taken to meet those needs should not be identical.
The Clever Catalyst does not offer packaged services and we do not have a price list menu to share, not because we're being secretive, but rather because we've never served the same set of needs more than once. We also do not put much stock in trends, not because we aren't trendy (#asif), but rather because being trendy often leads to being overlooked.
We also strive to be compassionate and patient when working with small businesses because we know how scary it can be! We never pressure, force contracts or turn away projects because they are too "trival". We approach all work, whether big or small, with the exact same amount of enthusiasm and honesty.
What makes The Clever Catalyst different is that we understand and embrace the differences of the small businesses we serve!
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
CEO of Enchantmints
Christi was super prompt and receptive. She took action straight away, asked clarifying questions, got what we're about and knows Instagram marketing.
Owner of MiniLou
We will absolutely be using Christi again on other projects. She met our goals, provided useful feedback on the project, and was a dedicated, hard worker. We used her for several months for our ongoing marketing campaign. She was very good at communicating and providing thoughtful suggestions. She received feedback well and adjusted accordingly. I loved working with her.
CEO of Tell Your Tails
Christi is fantastic! She is detail-oriented, communicative, and ready to take on any task I throw at her! She has a can-do attitude and gets things done with little oversight
