I opened Do North Marketing LLC in 2018. But, my tourism marketing career began in 2001. When I moved to Grand Marais in 2004, I worked for a few major resorts in marketing and resort operations. After 15 years in the industry, I had the opportunity to open my marketing business - Do North Marketing.
The kick-start was acquiring the popular North Shore Visitor Guide, the official guide of the North Shore Scenic Drive. See the article in the Cook County News Herald. The name was changed to North Shore Explorer!
2019 was the first booklet that I published. Hands down, this is the best job ever! I have the privilege of partnering with dozens of other local and small businesses when they advertise in the North Shore Explorer guide. When it’s time for businesses to renew (August - September), I enjoy traveling Highway 61 to meet with and visit with my tourism partners. Making the deliveries is fun too!
To go along with the guide, I created a blog - NorthShoreExplorerMN.com. It features stories and pictures of experiences you can have on the North Shore. As a long-time tourism marketing professional, I love taking pictures and telling stories that share experiences, and promote business.
I have designed the blog content to be shareable and linkable, so North Shore businesses can engage their guests with this content for free.
There are also Content Marketing packages focused on helping businesses expand their reach and drive sales are also available through the NorthShoreExplorerMN.com platform.
Do North Marketing LLC also provides a variety of marketing services to clients.
On a personal note, however...I love the North Shore. I am so fortunate to be able to live here in such a wonderful community. My hubbs and I have a teenage son and enjoy attending his sporting events and alpine ski races. Depending on who you are in my family, we enjoy hiking, photography, swimming, fishing, hunting, boating, skiing, or playing video games with your friends. What a life! Lol
