Do North Marketing LLC was opened by Melissa Dressely (me) in July, 2018. The business began with the acquisition of the popular North Shore Visitor guide. In addition to publishing the (now called) North Shore Explorer guide, Do North Marketing LLC serves clients with a variety of marketing services.
My career in tourism marketing started in 2001 at the Pocono Mountains Vacation Bureau, where I was the Pubic Relations Coordinator.
In 2004 my hubby and I moved to Grand Marais, Minnesota. After doing public relations and marketing for Odyssey Development's properties Caribou Highlands Lodge, Grand Superior Lodge, and Larsmont Cottages on Lake Superior for a couple of years, my son was born.
My career picked up again at Lutsen Mountains where I worked to brand and market all aspects of the company's offerings including Summit Chalet Weddings, Eagle Ridge Resort, Papa Charlie's Tavern and Stage, and Lutsen Mountain's alpine skiing, alpine slide, and gondola attractions. Wearing many hats, I was also able to work in group sales, event coordination, hotel revenue management, reservations, guest service, and reputation management.
In 2017 I joined the team as AGM at the Best Western Plus Superior Inn in Grand Marais. And, in 2018 with the acquisition of the North Shore Visitor guide, I was able to achieve my goal of being self-employed by opening Do North Marketing LLC!
I look forward to learning more about your business, and assisting in the achievement of your goals through strategic marketing.
