If you’re an online influencer looking for a predictable way to create more income on your own terms directly from your 7-figure-plus audience, then we can help.
The Resolve Agency specializes in creating and executing custom sales and promotional campaigns for our influencer clients.
We're not coming to you saying, "Here's a brand, wanna get paid to pitch their stuff which may not even fit you or your audience?"
We're saying "You already ARE the brand. How can we help you serve your audience and create more income at the same time?"
HERE'S HOW IT WORKS:
We work directly with our clients to create an irresistible custom offer that fits what you’re already doing in your existing brand. We then promote that offer in a time-limited launch to your existing audience and fulfill delivery of the assets as quickly as possible.
What would that offer be?
That depends on you and how your audience receives value from you. It might be a digital product, a special event, or it might be a physical product that represents you (merch, etc.).
Whatever the offer ends up being, we work to elevate it in your audience's mind from "cool, you're selling a thing" to "I need this RIGHT NOW."
Throughout the process, everything is done with the minimum required effort from you, but presented in your voice as if you were the one doing it all.
WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU:
You don't have to wonder "Does this product fit my audience and my own style?" Everything we do comes from your own content and your own style, so the answer will always be YES.
You get to create income for yourself without having to wait on money from your platforms, in amounts that may change without notice, and over which you have zero control.
You don’t have to wait for outside brands to approach you – on their timing, not yours – with a deal that may or may not be a fit for you.
And even if you're already in a good place with your income, you still get to add more stability with another way to make money whenever you want. And who couldn’t use another way of doing that?
WHAT DO YOU BRING TO THE TABLE?
Every influencer has different personalities and strengths, but here are some of the most important things that Resolve’s clients have in common:
A STRONG RELATIONSHIP WITH A LARGE AUDIENCE
That relationship is everything – it means the audience knows you, likes you, and trusts you. It means they are willing to give you their attention, which is incredibly valuable. This relationship must be protected at all costs.
YOU KNOW YOUR ONLINE PLATFORMS AND THEIR USER PSYCHOLOGY
Online platforms work in different ways, and audiences behave different ways on different platforms. Because of this, you can’t create content the same way for every platform, and you can’t treat all audiences the same way.
But you already know that.
YOU KNOW WHAT CONTENT WORKS BEST FOR YOUR BRAND
Platforms are constantly changing, and so are audience’s behaviors. You're an expert content creator, and you know what kinds of posts and content are working right now for you.
THE CHARACTER AND PERSISTENCE TO DO WHAT YOU DO
Lots of people hope and wish to build an audience, but most people don’t. You’re different – you are the kind of person who does what it takes. You’ve put in the blood, sweat, and tears to make it happen. You rock.
A DESIRE TO EXPAND IN SALES, MARKETING, OR JUST GETTING MORE THINGS DONE
You know that hustle is important, but hustle will only take you so far before you run out of time and energy... or you burn out completely. You're looking to get more results beyond just what you could do yourself.
WHAT DOES RESOLVE BRING TO THE TABLE?
We’re here to fill in the gaps of things influencers either don’t know, or don’t have the time, experience, or resources to do yourself. This happens at the big picture strategic level and at the nuts-and-bolts tactical level.
STRATEGY: SEEING THE BIG PICTURE
EXPANDED BUSINESS MODELS
Influencers often don’t know what’s possible outside the things most people do on their platforms. There’s a whole world of business beyond social media, and we want to help you benefit from that.
VALUE CREATION AND MESSAGING STRATEGY THAT WORKS ON ANY PLATFORM
Many influencers do what they do by feel or gut instinct. Often they don’t have clear mental frameworks around what different parties find valuable and how to communicate that. If you can be fully aware of that, you can conduct business on any platform anywhere.
DECADES OF EXPERIENCE IN TRADITIONAL AND DIGITAL CONTENT CREATION, MARKETING, AND GETTING THINGS DONE
We’ve been honing our skills in creating and delivering value since, well… since before the internet even existed. We had to walk barefoot in the snow uphill both ways just to make a phone call – with quarters. From a pay phone.
MULTI-TALENTED TEAM AND CONTRACTORS WITH SYSTEMS AND PROCESSES ALREADY IN PLACE
Hustle will only take you so far. The more you want to accomplish, the more important it is to have a team. But building a team takes time and hard work, and teams don’t succeed unless they have systems and processes – ways of doing things that they all understand.
TACTICS: GETTING THINGS DONE
Here is a partial list of things we have actually done, for projects seen by only a handful of people and projects seen by millions of people around the world. We know what things work in what situation, and what to stay away from.

Jeff Bartsch is a multi-faceted storyteller, consultant, and entrepreneur. He built his career as a broadcast TV editor in Los Angeles for clients including ABC, NBC, Universal, Disney, Apple, and many others. His commentary on the entertainment industry has been featured in Time Magazine, USA Today, the Associated Press, and multiple textbooks, and he is the author of Edit Better: Hollywood-Tested Strategies for Powerful Video Editing.
Jeff has been building online and offline businesses for 14 years that have empowered students and clients in over 50 countries across 6 continents.
After 21 years in Los Angeles, Jeff and his family have taken advantage of post-Covid life to move closer to family near Cleveland, Ohio. When he's not helping creators, Jeff loves spending time with his wife, two young children, and a very happy German Shepherd named Saint.
Rachel Bogan loves telling stories and balancing the worlds of creativity and process. She is the owner of Renegade Digital Post, a boutique video editing service based in Denver, Colorado, and she is the author of How to Edit Videos People Want to Watch.
Years ago, Rachel decided she wanted to level up her creative editing skills and discovered a 5-week coaching program that Jeff Bartsch was offering to a select group of creatives in person in Los Angeles. Rachel packed up her laptop, drove from Denver to Hollywood, crashed on a friend’s couch, and stayed in California for the full five weeks so she could participate in the course. Rachel brings that same intensity, creativity, and passion to every project she takes on.
Rachel lives in Denver with her husband and their canine partner-in-crime Radar. She also loves roller skating.
Not just anyone has spent the last decade avidly following a diverse range of online creators and understanding the creative process, all while building a resume of entertainment industry experience in Los Angeles. Andrea has, and she loves the idea of putting all those things together and helping other creators at the same time.
She has worked as the assistant to the writing team of Turner & Hooch, an original series for Disney+/20th Century Fox, and her production support credits include projects on Netflix, ITV, Bravo, Comedy Central, and the Food Network. Her industry experience includes broadcast TV, commercials, and feature film.
Andrea lives in Los Angeles and is developing her own screenwriting projects.
Our contractor and relational network includes incredibly accomplished people in the areas of traditional mass media, online media, venture capital, non-profits, enterprise-level business management, and entrepreneurial growth.
We are always learning and growing so you can grow too.
OUR OPERATING BELIEFS
WE BELIEVE THAT:
GOOD THINGS COME FROM FAST ACTION.
We choose clients, team members, contractors, and processes that get things done as quickly and smoothly as possible. This lets us learn what works and adjust for the next round instead of overthinking just one campaign.
COMMUNICATION IS MISSION CRITICAL.
Without clear, open communication, success is impossible. We work to communicate clearly and in a timely way with our clients, team members, and contractors, and we expect the same in return.
THERE WILL ALWAYS BE HIDDEN CHALLENGES.
We work to make choices that maximize the chances of success.
Even so, problems, challenges, and “things we didn’t plan on” will always happen, even to the most experienced people in any field anywhere. Always. There is no escaping this – if it’s not a literal law of nature, it’s pretty close.
Because of this, we prepare for possibilities as best as we know at the time, and we adjust as we go.
TRANSPARENCY BUILDS AND MAINTAINS TRUST.
Resolve makes sure you always know the process and the numbers.
You make sure Resolve knows what you’re doing, even if it doesn’t seem to matter. Even the smallest detail can derail a campaign.
Money is handled with complete openness according to agreements already in place.
WE ARE HERE TO EMPOWER YOU, NOT TO KEEP YOU DEPENDENT ON US.
We help you build assets that will serve you into the future whether we’re part of it or not.
We don’t hold on to certain pieces of the puzzle just so you will continue to need us.
If we do our job right, you’ll do one of two things: you’ll bring us on again and again because the process just plain works, or you’ll eventually grow to the point where you don’t need us at all.
THAT RESOURCES SHOULD BE MANAGED WISELY, AND EVERYONE SHOULD BE PAID WELL.
This includes you, Resolve, AND the end users.
Good, fast, cheap…. pick two, because having all three at once is impossible to sustain.
Sometimes we choose solutions that get the job done to an acceptable level, because going beyond that level would be an unwise use of resources. But whenever possible, we choose good quality and experienced people who move fast. Although it might require more resources up front, this approach gets higher-level results faster, allowing for more projects generating more income for everyone into the future.
People who value cheap price over all else (“cheap people”) tend to behave in ways that spread lack and mistrust into the world. While we seek to be wise with our resources, we also seek to be and associate with people who spread opportunity and generosity to the world.
OUR GOALS FOR YOU
WE WANT YOU TO:
FEEL EMPOWERED TO CREATE INCOME ON YOUR OWN TERMS.
Other platforms or brands might offer you deals, but usually this means you have to either wait for those deals, give up a lot of control, or only receive a small percentage of the profits. Here, you take control by creating opportunity for yourself, and you get to keep more of the profit by BEING the brand.
KNOW THAT YOUR BRAND IS SAFE.
You haven’t just built an audience – you’ve built a relationship with that audience. Protecting that relationship is critically important, and the best person to decide what that looks like is you.
ACCOMPLISH MORE THAN WHAT YOU COULD DO JUST ON YOUR OWN.
Hustle is important, but hustle will only take anyone to a certain point before you run out of time, energy, or know-how. We want you to accomplish more by working with us than you could just by hustling.
STAY FOCUSED ON WHAT'S MOST IMPORTANT TO YOU.
You have goals and priorities, and you have to stay focused on what you believe is most important. We want you to be able to keep that focus while we get you more results.
GAIN NEW VIEWS OF WHAT'S POSSIBLE.
Maybe it’s a new way of doing business, maybe it’s a new way of interacting with a team. Maybe it’s new skills that you can apply to other parts of your business or your life.
