Dequiana Jackson, Small Business Marketing StrategyHello! My name is Dequiana Jackson, MBA, and I’m a small business marketing coach who is excited to teach women entrepreneurs like you how to get out of their own way and use solid marketing strategies to reach their ideal clients.  I work with business owners who may have experienced the following: they are passionate about their business, but something about the marketing just isn’t working.  They know they have a unique gift that would benefit others, but are having trouble attracting clients who want what they have to offer and are willing to pay for it.

If you’re ready to change that, I will show you how.

I’ve always been motivated by two things: entrepreneurship and helping others succeed.  Both of my businesses were built around helping entrepreneurs solve a problem.  Inspired Graphics Media was developed in 2003 after I noticed that many entrepreneurs I met did not have web sites, or the web sites they used to promote their businesses were lacking the key tools that would convert their site visitors into buyers.  However, I was slow to make a profit because I did not understand the proper way to market my services.  It took me 6 months to land my first web design client!  Rather than rest on my laurels, I decided to go to business school and learn the right way to market.  A few months into my classes, December 2005, I started Entrepreneur Resources: A Small Business Blog (  This blog served as a way to share my new knowledge with other entrepreneurs.

I graduated from the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business in 2007 with an MBA in Marketing Strategy, Entrepreneurship and Organizational Behavior.  Directly after school, I worked in brand management for a top consumer packaged goods company.  I learned the strategies used to make billion dollar brands successful, and now I’m bringing that marketing knowledge back to the small business community.  In September 2010, Inspired Marketing, Inc. was born.  Through private coaching, group coaching and home study products, I help women entrepreneurs make more money in their businesses through better marketing.  I’m so excited to be able to help small business owners succeed.

Personally, I’m wife to a husband whose passions include transcription, ministry, music production and video games and mother to two energetic daughters. We live in Chicago, Illinois, but I help women from around the globe.

There’s an inner fire just waiting to burst through. Let’s ignite it. Contact me for your complimentary, 30-minute Boost Your Business coaching session.
