Hi, I'm Katie!

Founder of Strategy House & Marketing Strategist

Katie Felten, Marketing Strategist

I really began leveraging social media for my business in 2006. At the time I was in a sales role, so networking came naturally to me. Though I had a LinkedIn account, like many people at the time, I wasn’t really using it as a business development tool. I started to use LinkedIn as more than a social network, and began to leverage it as a tool to build, manage, and grow relationships.

As my network grew and I began engaging with people on LinkedIn more frequently, people began to notice. Colleagues would reach out with questions, and what began as a cup of coffee to help someone set up a profile, quickly morphed into MKELive, a networking group centered around meeting people and using LinkedIn to stay in touch. As the facilitator, I helped shift the perception of LinkedIn from a job seeking tool, to a valuable business development and relationship management tool.

That fundamental shift in the way we view LinkedIn is still at the core of what we offer at Strategy House, my marketing agency. Since then I’ve focused on training B2B sales teams how to use LinkedIn and sharing success strategies with consultants looking to grow their business. Now, with countless training sessions and speaking events under my belt I teach them how to leverage LinkedIn to create brand awareness, generate leads and establish their organization as industry experts with clear cut plans and processes.

LinkedIn for Business Development

As a speaker, my goal is to change people’s perception of the way they use LinkedIn. Many tend to see the platform as a job search tool or merely another social network they have to keep up with. Instead, I help them view LinkedIn as a living, breathing rolodex that allows people (especially those in a sales role) to tap into the network they’ve worked hard to grow over the years and leverage connections to grow their business.


My presentations outline a plan and process for you and your B2B business. You’ll learn how to create brand awareness, generate leads and establish your organization as an industry expert, keeping you top of mind when your services or products are needed. Using a three pronged approach, my training and speaking sessions:

  1.  Focus on customers and prospects vs. recruiting or hiring managers. I’ll help you speak directly to the customers you want to work with.
  2. Train your team on how to leverage LinkedIn as a business development tool whether your goal is customer research or reaching out to new prospects.  

  3. Teach you what to do on a daily basis on LinkedIn to stay top of mind with consistent customer centric content, so that people in your network associate you with your niche.
