Oh Hey! I’m Megan

The Owner of BNL Media Consulting.

Owner and Social Media Guru, BNL Media Consulting

BNL was born out of a love for all things local. When I made the conscious decision to move to Kelowna full time, it was the interactions I had with small businesses and their owners that truly made me feel like I was a part of a community. To the business owners of Kelowna, Thank You!

I first became fascinated with the power of the digital world when I did an honour’s thesis at UBC Okanagan looking at the impact Digital Communication was having on relationship initiation and maintenance among young adults. In hindsight, I guess this was the beginning of BNL’s vision.

Following that degree, a trip to Thailand, being introduced to who I refer to as my “millionaire mentor” who encouraged me to start writing a blog, and an amazing experience working in an extremely successful startup that specialized in Facebook advertising… here we are.

Today, BNL no longer is just about me but about a team of passionate and ridiculously talented digital marketers and creatives that work closely with businesses that we believe need to be seen in their community. No matter whether you are a storefront, an online business, or a personal brand - there is a community out there waiting for you!

Every business that BNL works with not only becomes a part of the local conversation but is welcomed into an amazing network of business owners and entrepreneurs who are working together to change the way social media is used. We love being connectors and we won’t hesitate to introduce you to anyone and everyone who is a perfect fit for your brand!

We work with you to generate authentic content, positive messaging and foster honest connections with your community and customer base. Creating valuable content and connection is what we LOVE doing.
