Exceeding the MARKETING Needs of Small Business

We're on a mission to take LOCALISM to the next level.

Market Style Media is a part of a movement to cultivate vibrant, self-sufficient, and prosperous communities. We believe that when we nurture our locally-owned, independently operated small businesses our community thrives.

We believe in small towns and their communities. Market Style Media wants to help build and promote sustainable small businesses that make our communities unique.

Uniquely Small Town!



We've put together an arsenal of FREE information to
help you learn about the LOCALIST MOVEMENT and we want to share it with you!

It’s not enough to have a bright idea. The real battle is implementing and spreading the word about effective LOCALISM. That's why Market Style Media wants to give you access to innovative and effective strategies, toolkits, and templates. We want everyone to learn from our collective challenges and share in our collective success.


Our small towns cannot thrive and prosper without our small business owners. ​A study by the Chamber of Commerce showed that the majority of small businesses spend an average of $400 per month on marketing, however, more than 32% spend less than $100 per month and only 6% spend more than $1,000 per month. Market Style Media strives to meet the needs of small business owners at every marketing budget level.

Market ​Style Media is here to help you with "chicken and egg" marketing. This means that in order to sustain a business you need marketing, but in order to spend money on marketing, you need business to support a budget. We are a small business and we understand the struggle of small business owners.

That is why we've changed our business model to fit the small business owner.

“If we stick together, we’re all going to go to the top together,”
Lynne McDaniel, Owner, An Orange Moon, Chicago, IL & Small Business Community Activist

What PEOPLE are saying

Cece Consultant

Tight spot


My web developer became unavailable just before we were about to launch my website. Lisa helped me complete the website, then guided me to create the content I needed to make it better. MSM managed it until I retired.

Judy Small Business Owner

Understood Me & My Business


Lisa understood my business. She was able to pull the important elements of my branding and build a website that helped me increase my revenue, launch a book that was #1 on Amazon, and pull off a successful conference attended by people from around the world.

Luci Small Business Owner

Moved from Pre-Fab Website Builder to WordPress


My friend William recommended Lisa to me many years ago. My website was on one of those website builders. I did something wrong and it messed up to a point that even with their tech support it couldn't fix it. Lisa recreated my website. It looks exactly like it did before. I am amazed by her technical skill.

Emily Small Business Owner

Teaches the Tools


Lisa's my go-to tech person. We worked together in Los Angeles before we both started our own businesses. She created my first website, moved me over to WordPress a few year ago, and has helped me learn the tools that I need to run my business online.

Certifying Local Business

Grow Deep

What does GROW DEEP mean?

We need to buy and support locally. But, most of all we need to source locally. That is the ultimate goal of the Local Exchange. We want our community to work together and forge local business alliances. When you source locally, even more of the money we earn stays in our small towns...

...generating a natural sustainability!
