Spring 2024 Coaching Series

Unlock the power of your brand & amplify your online sales

White Label Project launched their first digital coaching series for their global community of impact brands!

Our founders, Ann-Kathrin Zotz & Caroline Foerster, their expert team and network exclusively shared their insights on transforming a business into a desirable brand while expanding customer reach and optimising an online store.

As entrepreneurs ourselves, we recognise the challenge of balancing the strategic development of brand marketing and online presence with the demands of daily operations. We also understand that hiring expert consultants can often seem out of reach budget-wise.

That's why we have decided to provide hands-on consulting through a lean and interactive group session approach, powered by our community.

The Outcome

30+ women-owned businesses from over 20 countries joined our spring '24 coaching series

Located in Trinidad and Tobago, Colombia and Rwanda to Kenya, Germany, India & Bali with brands working with vintage fashion, interior design objects, clothing, accessories, jewelry, skin care and cosmetics.

The valuable feedback from the website audit not only guided us in making changes but also facilitated a comprehensive restructuring of our webshop.

Drishti Lafaani
Delhi, India

This coaching series has been an eye-opener for me and even though I realise that I need to go back to square one. The time flew so quickly and there was so much to digest that I am certain that I will be watching the videos repeatedly.

The Sessions provided a framework for developing the overall brand concept but also went into the nitty gritty of how to actually achieve objectives with the supplied templates and resources.
