SG Pro's Social Media Deep Dive For Sex Geeks!
Do you feel like the undiscovered secret in your field?
Wonder why you’re not gaining loyal fans and credibility?
Do you watch other educators, some with a lot less talent and insights, getting ahead and filling their workshops… While you bust your behind and scratch your head? Struggling to get enough people in the door to justify the time and effort you put in?
If you’re ready to transform your business and have clients and customers asking YOU when your next offering is…
The key is Social Media!
Before you run, or shrug and say, “But I’m already doing that!” we’d like to ask:
- Are you doing Social Media in an organized and savvy way?
- With the latest updates, and informed by people who are actually winning on Social Media in the sex-positive world.
And if you’re frustrated with the changing rules and the fear-based sex-negative rules so many social media platforms impose, know that there is help!
A lot of people “do” Social Media by tossing a few things out there haphazardly, sharing a few posts, and then when they have something to sell —in a different tone altogether— blasting their followers with marketing and sales invitations.
They may never know their accounts are shadow banned with few followers seeing their material. And the annoyance and anger when the powers that be take down perfectly normal posts and give no feedback… Or say that posts within the guidelines are in violation. This happens all too often to those in the sex-positive community!
When Social Media is done with savvy, structure, and confidence, the human brain associates YOU and your business as important, consistent, and valuable.
- You want to create Secure Attachment with your audience without overwhelming them or leaving them bored with your posts and information.
- You want your posts to demonstrate warmth and caring (not fear and chastisement) with enough strength, humor, and power to guide them…
- All while dealing with a tender subject many people have trauma and shame around!
If this sounds challenging, it is! Especially as so many business owners are struggling with their own feelings of insecurity, imposter syndrome, and uncertainty if they’re doing any of this “right.”
Why Social Media?
Why should you worry about Social Media? Promoting anything sex-positive on social media is tough right now. And most of the major platforms are cracking down on anything remotely related to sex and sex-positivity.
Social Media is where you can:
- Have low risk, low investment interactions with existing and future customers and clients.
- Help educate and bring awareness to problems (and solutions!) your future paying clients may not be aware of (roughly 70% of your prospective clients don’t know there is a unique and powerful solution to issues you teach about!).
- Build your email lists and send people to your websites with gentle reminders.
- Help their brains anchor you as important and worth remembering! (This is a survival brain/subconscious pattern. If you see someone several times in different locations — I.E., email, Facebook, Instagram, webinar, someone else’s podcast... they gain more and more importance! Their brain will invest critical brain cells in remembering you!)
- You get to make a difference in people’s lives in small bite-size chunks… For people new to the field or topic, that may be all they can digest at first. You are helping build better humans and potentially reaching prospective customers for your offerings down the road!
- Reach 3.8 Billion active social media users globally… people who are in need of your expertise and didn’t have a clue you existed!
- Reinforce and remind existing fans and on-the-fence followers.
- Build your list and send traffic to your website.
If you’d like to learn how to “do” Social Media — in a sex-positive way that is also effective and fun — and see your brand, career, and business grow, Join Us!
In this deep dive intensive, we will:
- Help you understand your Social Media self-expression at a deeper level, including some volunteer hot-seating to help people fine-tune their strategies. (You do not need to hot seat unless you want to!)
- Give you feedback on which platforms might be best for your target demographics.
- Help you identify your authentic self-expression on the platform(s) that you feel drawn to use.
- Show you how to cycle between different types of sharing/posting to keep people engaged while you help empower them around the areas they’re struggling with
- Balance your content on fast-paced and longer-term sites (and why that balance is important!).
- Have sex-positive experts in some of the more popular Social Media sites shorten your learning curve and help avoid costly mistakes by sharing with you their best tips and ideas and telling you What Not To Do!
- Guide you in developing a content plan that lets you wisely invest your social media efforts, save time, and gives you better engagement, rave reviews, and a feeling that you’re making headway!
- Show you how to set up systems so you get people on your list and build up options for monetization.
We won’t be covering all forms of Social Media — there are too many to dive into in our time together; however, the best practices and strategies for social media we address will give you the skills and confidence to kick more ass in your business.
Plus, you will get to meet and learn from some of the best sex-positive educators on social media today and learn what winning approaches they're using on their favorite social media platforms...

What People Are Saying About Cathy and Reid
“Cathy is one of the most caring, nurturing facilitators I’ve ever encountered. With the Momentum program, we worked through the specific steps of creating the foundational elements of online business (writing bios, building lead magnets, etc.). Every step of the way Cathy created a safe container for us to be brave in sharing and giving feedback so that we ALL got stronger!”
~Leah Carey, Good Girls Talk About Sex
“About Reid’s business coaching… Since I missed his workshop at my own conference (Sex Down South), Reid was sweet enough to do a condensed version and catered it, just to me. As he asked me questions, my inner flame lit up with the thoughts of my passion and how I can give my gifts of sexual education to the world. From this realization, Reid was able to give me amazing and practical advice to digitize my curriculum to create a more profitable platform. I’ve gone to many business classes, read a ton of business books, and I’m always looking for ways to enhance my craft. Reid was able to pull out what I needed in all of an hour! I will definitely be looking to him in the future; to not only keep me accountable, but help me bolster new and fruitful ways of fostering my passion and building on my income.”
~Marla Renee Stewart, MA, Co-Founder of the Sex Down South Conference
“I have been a student of Cathy’s 4 times now! Twice in person for week long intensive sessions and twice in virtual multi-week training courses. I keep coming back for more because I love Cathy’s teaching style, her content and her genuineness. Cathy’s Business Training Courses as well personalized feedback has helped me grow my business exponentially! Not only have sales gone up 100X since I first started by business, but I am also significantly more confident in what I do and offer to clients.”
~Mason Luke of MasonLuke.com
“Reid Mihalko has the unique ability to be able to take big, overwhelming things and show you how to break them down into smaller, manageable chunks. He is great at seeing and articulating a "third" option whenever I am stuck in an either/or situation. He has changed my life numerous times and anything new he is offering I want front row seats for 'cause I know it's gonna be good!”
~Monique Darling of EverydayTantra.com
“I found working with Cathy very helpful. Her insights into how to use small steps in the building of a business really helped me to “chunk” my work, so it didn’t seem overwhelming, it didn’t need to get all done at once! That allowed me to take my time, work on the smaller projects in the order, and the time that I wanted to. I highly recommend working with Cathy if you’re new (or old) to the sex education or therapy field and are looking to make new headway in your business.”
~Erik W. House from lovemultipliescoaching.com
‘Reid, I am in awe at your ability to conduct a group and transmit wisdom! It was thrilling for me to participate in the process. I can appreciate how much experience and practice went into getting the teachings distilled down into the bullet points, and your humorous presentation was brilliant!”
~Cheri, San Diego
“Cathy is an amazing, caring, considerate, impassioned human being. She has a warmth to her character that invokes an ease within me. That ease helps me shed light on the shadows of my resistance. She is inspiring and supportive. Her classes have been incredibly informative, carefully cultivated, and have had an immeasurable impact on my person and my business. I am motivated and confident in a way I never imagined. Cathy has given me the skills to focus and create action, where before I was drowning in doubt and uncertainty. She reels in amazing groups of folks who make the classes that much more phenomenal. My business and person will forever be grateful for what I have learned, and implemented thanks to Cathy’s creativity and dedication to helping others reprogram their lizard brains.”
~Susanna Beeman of ColofulAdvice.com
“No matter the topic, even if it was one I thought I wasn’t interested in, I have always found Reid’s presentations more than worth the time. He is always both highly informative and entertaining. He clearly knows what he’s talking about, and unlike many other experts, he can also COMMUNICATE that knowledge well.
I highly recommend Reid both as educator and coach — I did go to him once with something I’d been stuck on for years, and was shocked at how much progress/change I was able to make with just one session. (I was able to stay unstuck after that, so didn’t need to go back, but would not hesitate to do so with other problems.)”
“I’ve taken lots of marketing and business building courses and Cathy excelled at providing a compassionate environment combined with the specific instructions and support needed to actually accomplish the important but sometimes daunting tasks involved in growing an online business. Highly recommended!”
~ Angela of TheArtOfSuccessForWomen.com
“I will take part in literally anything Cathy offers. I always feel incredibly supported and believed in. Cathy helps me believe in myself and my capabilities, which is rare and so incredibly helpful. Not only that, her constructive feedback is actually useful.”
~Julia Sheldon of JuliaSheldon.com
