Okay, I’m super judgy about how someone presents their business.

What up, I’m Sara Cripe!  I’m a marketing mastermind that assists businesses in targeting their past and potential clients.  I have a crazy desire to transform my client’s ideas and visions into something that is actually tangible.  Your business can be the best thing since the Push-Up Bra, but success is going to be pretty tough to do if nobody knows your business even exists.  So what now?  HELLO, let the people know – MARKETING!  


Okay, I’m super judgy about how someone presents their business.  I noticed the lack of professionalism when a company’s marketing didn’t match.  All I could imagine was some sweaty guy in a dark basement just throwing flyers together in Microsoft Word and not caring one bit about balance or eye movement across the page!  Ahh – my worst nightmare!  I thought, “Hey, I can be that be that person!  But I can make it look good!” minus the sweat and dark basement, of course!  And so, Connect Grafiks & Marketing was brought to life!  I love waking up in the middle of the night with a new idea for my client!  I love seeing people’s passions and excitement for what they do!  I love Monday morning because I get to work for these businesses and share in their success!

Look Dad, I told you an English degree wasn’t a complete waste of time.

Greetings all! My name is Esther Mullett and I’ve been working as a freelance pen-for-hire and editor for nearly ten years now. I suppose I sort of fell into it in some ways, as I don’t recall drawing any “when I grow up” pictures of myself squinting at a laptop while a rotund cat yells at me for more food.


It’s true I’ve always been deeply passionate about reading, and have had my nose in one book or the other for as much of life as I can remember. To my dear, practical father’s chagrin, I ditched my initial business major within my first year of college, switched to English literature, and never looked back. During that time, I moonlighted as a writing consultant at the campus excel center, assisting students at all levels with their writing processes. It was there that I discovered I wasn’t cut out to be a teacher but that I wanted to play with words. Beyond that, I had no idea what it would look like.


Here we are, ten years later and I know what I love. I love doing the composition work for people that they cannot do themselves. I have had the pleasure to meet and work with so many people who are talented and passionate and simply do not know how to express themselves with the written word. Enter, my humble pen. I sincerely love language and what one can accomplish when choosing to engage with it fully. I enjoy the time spent in creating captivating images and moments, and delight in crafting the right voice to match each client’s unique style. I seek to bring your individual vision and personality into the spotlight and give you the opportunity to take your business and branding to the next level.


As a side note to increase your confidence, I will be opting to use a computer to create your content instead of an actual pen, as my handwriting is truly some of the most barbaric I have ever seen. Imagine a clichéd thirteen-year-old boy’s script, and then make it worse.


Let’s do some work together.


Why do you need Connect Grafiks?  

Are you tired of wanting to connect with your database but lack the time?

Does it bum you out when your previous clients end up using someone different?

Has your business slowed down because you haven't had the time to market yourself properly?

Do you get frustrated working behind a computer trying to create your own marketing design?

All of these reasons make perfect sense.  You should be out doing what you do best!  Leave your marketing to Connect Grafiks!  We take the frustration away and connect with your database for you!  Doesn't that sound nice?  Connect Grafiks knows the importance of making all your marketing congruent so your clients think of you consciously and subconsciously.  They will think of your first.  You will be at the front of their mind, not the back.  They will refer you constantly!  Why?  Because you took the time to make them a priority and market to them.
