Smartly Branded!

with Mara Aalipour

Group coaching for business owners who are seeking their ideal clientele and ready to take their business to the next level 

You are talented, skillful and you're working hard in your business. But if you're not making enough money that you know you deserve, this program empowers you to lay a solid foundation for building your business the right way. So, keep reading my friend!


You put your best to help your clients and do whatever it takes to build your business. But sometimes you wonder,

Why can't I charge my true worth? 

Why I always end up with tire-kickers, time-wasters or penny-pinching clients? 

With all my expertise, why do I have to chase them? 


If you feel that way, you have my empathy. I have been there and I know how it feels to be frustrated with not getting results. For me, no matter how much harder I worked, it wasn’t until I invested in my brand that my business kicked off.


It doesn't have to stay frustrating. You don't have to waste more years doing the same thing and getting the same results. If you think there is more to you that the world has not seen, it is time to make the change to get out of the majority who struggle. It’s time to brand yourself so that you can transition into the top performers of your industry.

Let me ask you something.

Did you know the top leaders, in any industry, make tens and even hundreds of times more than an average business in the same field?

For example:

  • An average realtor makes close to $47k/year while top realtors make an average $500k/year and megastar realtors earn millions of dollars every year.

  • An average coach earns around $50k/year while Tony Robbins earns $9m at his UPW event. 

Are the top leaders more talented than the majority who struggle?

Are they more skillful?

Well, not necessarily. But one thing is crystal clear and common between all of them. They are super good at branding and separating themselves from the rest of the crowd. That's why they are able to attract their ideal clientele. 

It's one thing to be an expert in something, it's totally another thing to be KNOWN as THE GO-TO EXPERT in the field.

I found out about it years back then I started my transition by building my brand. Now, I am committed to empowering you to do the same thing and have your ideal clientele. So I created this online live group coaching program so that you can do the same.

By the end of this group coaching program, you will have

  • The foundation of building a successful brand

  • An understanding about where to start and how to piece together fundamental elements for building a strong brand

  • Clarity on how to lay a foundation for your brand based on who you are

  • A powerful structure for your marketing efforts so your marketing budget will not be wasted on the wrong audience

  • Clarity about your ideal clients, their needs and the solution you can offer them 

  • Your brand lighthouse that leads you to create a stream of valuable content for social media and beyond

  • A strong, irresistible message that allows you to attract your ideal clientele

But more than that, SMARTLY BRANDED! will give you the tools to offer a solution for your ideal clients’ pain so you can attract them with ease instead of chasing them and trying to convince them all the time.

In 6 weeks, you will go through an exciting process:

  • I will walk you through the phases of the program on live video calls. 

  • You will have workbooks to put your learning into practice.

  • You'll get all your questions answered for maximum clarity.

  • In  interactive sessions, we learn from each other


The program starts on Friday, June 12, 2020, at 11 EDT

The 6 phases are:


Your Mindset & Branding Foundation


Tapping into Your Uniqueness


Discovering Your
Golden Existence 


Crafting Your
Emotional Brand


Creating Your Magic Potion


Let Your
Brand Shine
Phase I
Your mindset & Branding Foundation

The basis of any successful endeavour is the mindset that allows you to see the possibilities and embrace change.

Right now it might feel like your business is stuck and you are tangled with many things that you do not even know where to start. But after finishing this part you could see a clear starting point that breeds the ground for your business. You could see yourself being open to a whole new possibility.

  • Follow my intention setting guidelines in this and any other program so you can feel a whole lot of difference in the results you could get.
  • Understand the power of a brand and how your brand could bring ease to your business growth.
Phase II 
Discovering Your Golden existence 

Leader businesses are created on an inside out approach starting with values and beliefs while the majority of players build their organizations with a totally opposite approach.

With my signature “Discovering Your Golden Existence”, I empower you to crack open your golden reason behind your business existence by a discovery journey in yourself.

  • Outline your driving values so that you clearly know what drives you and how to use them as a framework to create content, build partnerships and attract new clients. 
  • Discover your passion and how you can incorporate it into your business so that you get mentally fueled and feel like playing at work.
  • Define a powerful purpose behind your brand so you can connect with and attract people who respect and believe in what you do.

Phase III
Creating your magic potion

In any industry, the majority of businesses are struggling because they are trying to serve everybody. When you target everyone you are actually targeting no one.

Here, you’ll learn a solid framework for defining your audience as if you know them like your friend. 

By the end of this phase, you will have a profound structure for your brand about how you want to serve your audience.

  • Come up with a clear understanding of your audience's needs, desires and problems so that you can create a solution for them.
  • Finally have an engaging message that attracts the right people to your business and connects more deeply with them. 
Phase IV 
Tapping into your uniqueness

It's time to hone your message by differentiating yourself from the rest of the market.

I know you want to stand out, but so many business owners get caught up copying other players in their industry. That’s not you!

My goal is to empower you to stand using your uniqueness. And that is what you get at the end of this phase.

  • Identify your competitors and get a clear idea of how they are serving clients so that you can close the gaps between supply and demand
  • Tap into your personality attributes and hidden uniqueness of yourself or your offering so that you can stand out from the competition and have your desired share of the market.
Phase V

All human decisions are based on emotions rationalized by logic. People only buy when they are emotionally connected to your offering. 

By the end of this phase, you will know why should people care about your offering and how to engage them at the emotional levels.

  • Incorporate the pieces of your brand foundation into your branding statements so you have a lighthouse guiding you to your ideal clientele. Profit from the art of storytelling and learn how to effectively communicate your story so that you can content with your audience while providing value.

Phase VI 
Let your brand shine

Leader companies build their brand by the consistency that shows up in their message in writing, visuals and tone while the majority flip-flop and stir away from building trust.

At this phase, I empower you to wrap what you have created in the last five phases into a beautiful framework with adding details about your brand personality, visual identity and tone. 

  • Develop a system that allows you to deliver your message with ease to your audience, vendors or partners so you can save time and money.
  • Learn how to integrate different aspects of brand representation so that you can build trust with your audience faster and easier.

Taking Mara's branding training helped me get my business on the right track. I wasn’t focusing on who my target audience was and didn’t take the time to discover who my competition was. Mara walked me through the steps that helped me solve the problems I was having with growing my business. She helped me to craft a clear brand message that expresses who I am and clearly defines what I can offer my clients. Now I have the confidence to approach potential clients with a clearer message as to what my brand is and how I can help them be more successful in their business.

15-Day Money Back Guarantee

Let me begin by saying that the most important priority for me is your satisfaction with this program. I believe my approach to branding is powerful and it works when you do all the work and exercises. In 15 days, if you did so and still you were not satisfied, upon attending all the coaching sessions and completing all the workbooks, I will refund your money.

You might want to know what I have to do with your branding.

Arsia, my life and business partner, and I founded Smart Shot to help business owners with A-to-Z of branding. In the past few years, we have served hundreds of businesses in different fields to build their brand foundation and attract the clientele they dream of. We have never been so fulfilled with our career as much as we are now... finding out our clients are getting results.


But it wasn’t always like this. We have been in our own businesses all our career lives. So, we know what it takes to build a business from scratch! Let me tell you how we got started. 


I did my MBA in executive management and worked in marketing and sales for years in the chemical industry. Although I learned a lot from the B2B market, it was not my dream career. I always had the passion to help entrepreneurs build businesses from scratch or take an existing one to the next level. So I did my coaching practitioner designation too. 

Meanwhile, Arsia, as a talented artist, had his own advertising agency, creating brand identity and beautiful marketing visuals for different kinds of businesses for 2 decades.

We realized what helps business owners the most is the combination of branding knowledge, tools, art and professional marketing materials. So we decided to dedicate our lives and put years of experience together at Smart Shot to empower business owners, just like you, with A-Z of branding… and that’s when everything falls into place.

Your friend, 


Frequently Asked Questions


My business is slowed/ shut down with the COVID 19 pandemic. Is it the right time for branding for me?

The short answer is YES. The long one is YES because branding is not a short-term game and there is no better time than a slow time to create or restructure your brand. Not only that, but you can also start implementing your learning right away, connect to people, and build trust. Therefore, you will be able to sow now and rip when things get better.


When does the program start?

This round of group coaching starts on Jun 12, 2020. Live online sessions are at 11 am EDT each Friday for 6 consecutive weeks. Recorded video of each session is available if you cannot make it.


How is the program delivered?

This is a group coaching program that takes 6 weeks. 

Each week you will get 1 phase of training plus dedicated time for Q&A so that you get your question answered and learn from others



I’m just about to launch my business, is this right for me?

Congrats! YES of course! It is always easier and cheaper to do one thing right from the beginning than fixing it later. So, YES it is the right program for you because it allows you to lay a solid foundation since branding is the core of any business.


What if I’ve been in business for a while? Is this for me?

YES. If you're not happy with the results that you're getting, then it is definitely for you. By results I mean you're not getting the clients that you desire, you're not able to charge your true worth, you’re not reaching your income goals or you simply think by now your business should have been more successful. This program helps you get the knowledge and inspiration and you are the one to put it into action and make it happen.


I’m into selling products, is this for me?

Well, it depends. If you are willing to use your brand as a way of connecting to people, then YES, it is for you. But if you want to compete on price and be at the lower end pricing category, then it is not. 


What do I get more in this program comparing to hiring a designer?

That’s a good question! Let me clarify. 

Your brand is not your logo and designs. It is not even your product or service. 

Your brand is the experience that you create for your audience. It is the perception that they have in their mind of you.

Of course, your visuals like your logo and your brand colours, are part of your branding but that’s not all. The most powerful brands are created around a clear understanding of the people that you want to serve, their needs and the solutions you have for them.

Designers are artists who can create meaningful visuals with a well-defined BRANDS MESSAGE. And that's what this program gives you and beyond. 



How is your approach to branding different?

I am glad that you have this question. I believe branding is a combination of science and art with you in the center. I master the science part, because of my educational background and experience, and also I know the art part because I have been doing it for so long with my artist spouse. Not only that, I believe good brand messages should be authentic coming from your heart and your values. That's why I got my designation in NLP coaching. 

With my approach, I empower you to create a brand that comes from your core values and beliefs while I'll share with you the science and art you need to know to build a solid brand.
