Kidstop Toys & Books
The goal with every toy store is to enhance the lives of children and help them see the magic in life. Kidstop Toy store does exactly this however their focus on parents, who hold the buying power for families, was a huge focal point of my work with them.

Kidstop needed to partner with more local influencers to expand their footprint and the number of moms talking about the brand. I created and established relationships between local influencers.
Provided strategy outline for the influencer program. Worked to expand and establish new relationships with neighboring local regions in the southwest.
With Kidstop Toys & Books, we created and established seasonal in-store events such as the “Sip and Shop” events centered around back-to-school, Easter, and Christmas.
Encouraged owner to bring back a local favorite, Toy Tester event for 2019, and helped create a media and social strategy with PR representative for client.
Through my work with Kidstop I helped to establish new, fresh, logo styles for the client, a 20 year celebration logo, and new iconography to more clearly identify specific content and shop items. I also developed a new email strategy that helped bring the focus onto their community and highlight the experiences customers were having. Beyond email, and social media, we provided a video strategy for the client and their future endeavors.

Alyssa Stevens | Founder at Happy Camper Marketing & Consulting
I have had the pleasure of working with Sarah at The Rainmaker Institute. Not only is she well-spoken and very knowledgeable in social media, she is a fantastic leader. She is always encouraging people to learn, grow, and challenge themselves – including herself. Sarah is constantly bringing new ideas to the table, pushing herself to think “outside the box” for our clients, and seeking new opportunities to advance clients in their marketing.
Hannah Ribotto | Marketing Operations Manager
Sarah was someone who first trained me when I first started at The Rainmaker Institute. I was so thankful I was learning from her as she was beyond friendly, knowledgeable and professional. It is so clear when you talk to her that she has a passion for social media and a vast knowledge of its ever changing aspects. She is constantly up to date with the latest trends in social media and Sarah is always determined to remain current by continuing to learn and be the best at what she does. Sarah has not managed me directly however, it is clear that her team loves, respects, and trusts her as their manager. She has been an awesome co-worker and a person that I can honestly say I would be comfortable and happy to work with again.
