Sapphire Strategy is an Indianapolis-based, woman-owned business. Inspired by the stories of local entrepreneurs and influenced by a family of business owners, Jenn Golding started Sapphire Strategy with one goal in mind: to deliver a unique offering in a saturated market. By utilizing comprehensive data, experience-backed intuition, and strategic creativity, Jenn and her team provide a variety of digital marketing services with a different approach than a traditional agency.
One of the biggest differentiators is the development of the Sapphire Lifecycle Model, a model that guides brands through each step of the marketing lifecycle to help them audit their current practices, identify what’s working, and create and implement effective strategies based on this information.
Regardless of approach, our goal will always be to build meaningful relationships with our clients and become a partner in success.
Sapphire Strategy’s mission is to provide B2B businesses with the consultation, strategies, and recommendations they need to optimize their marketing performance and increase the ROI on their marketing spend. We are dedicated to:
- Building meaningful partnerships with our clients.
- Creating and delivering quality products and services.
- Being transparent about our process and recommendations.
- Communicating on a regular basis to avoid confusion or misunderstandings.
- Providing realistic deadlines and meeting them.
- Ethically managing our business and relationships.
- Connecting others with potential clients, partners, or beneficial contacts.
- Living up to our word.
Jenn gave a fantastic presentation about social media at IUPUI for students enrolled in Intro to Public Relations. She thoroughly explained to the students how various social media outlets can be utilized to enhance their public relations campaigns. Additionally, she provided “real-life” examples of how social media campaigns can negatively impact even the strongest brands when proper PR planning techniques are not applied. Her presentation was thought-provoking and engaging. In fact, we ran out of time because the students had so many questions! I will definitely have her back again.
As founder of Sapphire Strategy, Jenn Golding helps B2B brands win more customers and increase their marketing ROI. To that end, Jenn’s developed the Sapphire Lifecycle Model: an evidence-based blueprint and audit tool for optimum marketing performance.Sapphire is Jenn’s birthstone and, at times, her hair color.

Like juggling plates, herding cats or fire-fighting, Jordan’s oversight of deadlines, deliverables and quality keeps Sapphire efficient and laser-focused on client ROI. As Creative Project Manager, she ensures client projects progress smoothly, catching potential issues and opportunities early so clients get the best outcomes, as quickly and affordably as possible.

Creativity requires unconventional thinking, and that’s where Kylie thrives. As Sapphire Strategy’s Creative Coordinator, Kylie’s known for exploring every perspective and blending elements that don’t seemingly go together to uncover fresh, new solutions for B2B brands. In that role, Kylie creates written and visual content to help client brands stand out and win over audiences.
In her free time, Kylie continues to grow her technical design muscle as a member of the design guild coworking group at Apprenace. “Art,” she often says, “is intelligence having fun.” After a career pivot Kylie is freshly inspired to create art and develop her personal brand and style outside of work while doing the same for clients within work. She’s also an active member of Linking Indy Women, where local professional women share their stories and business experiences to propel each other forward. Kylie and her husband also attend many local creative events and consistently seek out ways to support diversity and equality in the Indianapolis and Carmel communities.
A former care coordinator for students navigating behavioral and emotional challenges, the fuschia-haired creative is also a proud stepmom and avid supporter of the arts, education, diversity and equality. Among the organizations she actively supports are Donors Choose, the PTO at Orchard Park Elementary in Carmel, and more.
