Julie Maturen, Development Director, YWCA Missoula

“Linda has been an amazing advocate for YWCA Missoula. She has given us great advice that has made us so much more successful.”

Nan Keiser Christianson, Public Affairs Officer, USDA Forest Service

“Need to know something about the pulse of business in the greater Missoula area? Linda Baumann and Marketplace Media is the first and only call you need to make. Most impressive are Linda’s scope of awareness, networks/contacts and knowledge; her engagement in the business community; her own entrepreneurial skills; and her ability & willingness to teach and mentor others.”

Bill Samsoe, Director of Membership, Missoula Area Chamber of Commerce

“Linda and I have become friends through the Missoula Area Chamber of Commerce. I am impressed with her ability to work with clients in so many positive ways, including creating websites and logos, and helping with advertising campaigns (whether it be a radio, TV, newspaper, mailing, or a door-hanger campaign). Her objective approach, and ability to tailor to small budgets or large, help her to be a client pleaser! I sense that she, and her staff, are there to truly help their clients.”

Nikki Kelly-Real, Cosmetologist, Changes the Salon & Day Spa

Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, Creative “Linda is very creative and knows what is best for you individually. She will make sure you are spending your advertising money wisely! She has some great ideas and always thinks outside of the box. I couldn’t survive without her!”

Andrea Holland, Marketing Director, Quality Supply

Top qualities: Expert, High Integrity, Creative “It has been a pleasure working with Linda Baumann and Marketplace Media. Her extensive experience in the marketing world have been both useful and educational. I look forward to working on additional projects with her in the future.”

Pam Gardiner, Owner, Well Buddies

Top qualities: Personable, Expert, Good Value “I met Linda Baumann at a free workshop they offered last year. I was impressed, early in the workshop, when she talked about getting in touch with your core mission. She shared with us that her core mission was helping people build their businesses. She talked about ideal customers and the fact that, while she likes serving a large, prosperous business with abundant resources to spend on higher-end services, she also welcomes the small business on a shoestring. As the owner of a brand new, shoestring-type business I felt welcome when I walked in the door months later. Linda is also an active cheerleader, giving me both practical and emotional support.”

Angie Breidenbach, Activist

Top qualities: Personable, High Integrity, Creative “I really enjoy working with Linda. She’s warm and sincere and desires to provide an excellent opportunity for the businesses she works with. Our company was involved in the 2008 Women’s Fair and felt it was very professionally managed. I’ve also worked with Linda as Mrs. Missoula America 2008 to provide entertainment for Pet Fest. I was overwhelmingly impressed at her results and the community response. Her heart for the Jadyn Fred Foundation is stellar as was her support and involvement in the fund-raising projects to support this valuable asset for children with cancer and extreme illness. Thank you, Linda!”

Thea Delamater, Owner, Random Task Engineer

Top qualities: Great Results, High Integrity, Creative “Linda has provided me with an array of creative and smart marketing tips that I have implemented into my small business. Her and her co-workers are accessible, creative and very knowledgeable. After having attended a couple of workshops, I felt more able and ready to take on my business’s marketing plan. Thank you!”

Linda Tracy, Owner, Digital Magic Video

If you want to kick your marketing up a notch, I highly recommend Marketplace Media.”
