Who We Are
Evelyn, Kim, Luci
We started Mile Up in 2016 because we saw a need for someone to help small businesses with their marketing. The name ‘Mile Up Marketing’ came easy to us as it is an homage to the town we both love, Lead, at 5280′ above sea level – a Mile Up.
With over 25 years combined marketing experience, Mile Up Marketing specializes in web design, graphic design, digital advertising and social media management.
Our favorite thing is to help a business or organization create a brand. We love to strategize with them about how they want the world to see their business, from look and feel, to mission, values, and goals. Then we build a logo, brand and website to get their business off the ground.
We love to be a company’s marketing department. Instead of an internal marketing department, we work with businesses and non-profits to build their marketing strategy and follow through with website development, advertising and social media management.
Mile Up Marketing is now a party of three with our newest addition to the team, Evelyn Groeger. Evelyn is our marketing specialist and loves working on the fine details of projects with our team.
