Hey! I’m Patrice K. Cokley – brand and marketing consultant, and owner of the talent development & management firm, The Bassline Group.
I am passionate about helping small to mid-sized businesses and brands authentically tell their stories and build strategies that help them effectively market to their target demographic, while enhancing their online and offline presence.
As a Detroit native and Virgo, I possess a strong worth ethic, persistence, tenacity, attention to detail with a creative eye, and desire to help companies and organizations along their journey. My belief is that you should always be learning and honing your craft, be a person of your word, and work diligently for clients – it’s that simple.
I am a full-time entrepreneur, using my formal education (BS & MBA in Marketing), experiences, and passion to help businesses grow, while encouraging others to pursue their dreams.
My work has been featured in many well-known media outlets such as The Wendy Williams Show, BBC, Sister Circle TV, VIBE, The Source, HOT97, Billboard, People, iHeartRadio, Entertainment Tonight, The Insider, and many more
I’ve spoken at Soho House Chicago, 2112, Chicago Urban League, Lake FX Chicago, Social Media Week Chicago, Columbia College, and Sprout Social. I’m a brand ambassador for Lugz footwear, and a college professor at SAE Institute: Chicago where I teach Music Business & Marketing.
After reading all of that, I know I may appear to be a very busy person – I am! Which is why I only take on a certain amount of clients at a time, throughout the year. This allows me to give them my focused attention and help them win in their business.
