The Partner for Your Small Business

Professional, Reliable, and Smart

Christine Darby


Christine is a digital marketing consultant. She is a Squarespace SpecialistMailchimp Expert, and proud 3rd generation Texas A&M Aggie (BBA in Business Analysis/MIS). She began her IT career as a Management & Technology Consultant with Ernst & Young. She worked for years as a systems engineer/analyst on IBM AS/400 enterprise systems, then changed direction and launched Collaborada. Now she helps small businesses plan and execute online solutions and strategies. 

To better understand the needs of SMB clients, in 2014 she completed a program in partnership with the University of Texas at Austin's Professional Development Center and City of Austin's Small Business Program — the specialized certification focuses on a core set of skills to help build strong, viable local businesses. 

Christine treats every client like a real partner. Her heart is for teaching and educating small business owners so they can make the best choices for their online marketing. 

I love helping small business owners with digital solutions. When clients experience real results because of a new site or simplified process, I know we have done our job. We strive to be a reliable, behind-the-scenes partner for your small business.
