Retail and E-Commerce Services
My consulting services are focused on small retailers and brands to help them create a clear, actionable strategy to grow their business in a manageable and profitable way. My 1:1 courses are designed to help empower business owners to implement their own custom strategy so that they do not have to hire a pricey third-party agency that.
I know from first-hand experience working with hundreds of small retailers and brands that you can do this on your own! With the right direction and a clear strategy, you can save thousands of dollars a month and see amazing results.
With that being said, commitment and time is needed to make these programs succeed. Each course is designed to educate the business owner by identifying core problem areas, creating metrics to grow to, and establishing processes to implement the changes needed. With the processes I have created you should be able to implement these strategies in less than 4 hours a week.

What My Clients Say
"Amanda has been an absolute pleasure to work with and has already helped our business grow with online visibility and sales opportunities. As a visual learner, I absolutely love that she organizes all our data and projections into visual charts and images as well as text. She's always eager to explain anything we don't quite understand, too. We thought we knew what we were doing and that we could expand our online business by ourselves but we've been blown away by Amanda's breadth of knowledge and ability to describe the details of her strategies and why they work. Her positive attitude, easy communication, organization, and professional expertise helped calm our feelings of overwhelm as small business owners trying to make it to the "next level". We're only one month in and are already seeing some amazing results!!!"
You're In Good Company...
A BUSINESS COACH THAT CARES
Hi! I'm Amanda Dinan. I've spent the last 15+ years working for corporate retailers and brands in Buying, Merchandising, and Digital Strategy positions. Call me crazy, but I love the ever-changing, fast-paced environment that retail provides. Let's just say I was hooked from day 1.
In my past roles with retailers like Ross and Amazon, I worked with hundreds of vendors and managed millions of dollars. In order to effectively grow my business, I had to learn how to quickly identify top opportunities and manageable ways to implement them. Even with a business generating over $100M in revenue a year, I was still a team of one.
Creating strategies became my superpower. I love digging into the data and finding solutions to a problem, and I hate wasting time. My programs were designed with a small business owner in mind- someone who has the drive to grow their business but lacks the time and resources to put a strategy into place.
Oh, and it shouldn't break the bank to find a teammate that can help you grow. Instead of pitching high monthly retainer fees like most consultants, we will work together for 6-12 weeks and you will leave the program with clear direction, actionable tactics, and automated reports and processes to continue to make change.
As a small business owner myself, I understand how important community is. I would love to help you build your dream.
I reside in beautiful Asheville, NC and am available for in-person meetings in WNC, Asheville, and Greenville. For those outside of the area I work with businesses all over the US and Canada virtually. Let's chat! I would love to know more about your business challenges and see how I may be able to help.
