Ambassador Level Sponsor: Media Works
Media Works – Lorelyn Mayr, owner
Tell us a little bit about you and your business:
How did you get into your line of work? I decided to go back to school and change directions with my career after being home and raising kids for a few years. I have always been an artist so enrolled in the Graphic Design and Illustration degree program. After graduation I really wanted to relocate back to Bozeman, where I grew up, so my family could be close to my parents. I contacted a family friend in Bozeman who happened to be selling her business. I purchased Media Works in 2013 and have been working as a designer for print and websites ever since. Media Works specializes in helping small businesses expand their marketing success with smart branding and targeted advertising.
Why did you decide to become an Ambassador Level Sponsor to an organization like Bozeman BPW? I really have enjoyed the friendships and connections I have within the group. I am happy to use my skills to help the group grow and move forward with technology and take advantage of all the options websites and social media has to offer.
What advice do you have to give to women professionals in the Gallatin Valley? Work together! I have found that networking, collaborating, and creating referrals to other woman in business really does provide a solid network for you to grow. The more you connect with others, the greater likely hood that they will refer others to you.
What should our community know about you and your business? As a small business owner myself I understand how hard it can be to get new customers and know if your marketing budget is being spent in the right places. Advertising and marketing does not need to overwhelm you or your budget. We work with you to make sure you can manage and drive your own marketing efforts to receive the greatest return on your investment.
