Alli is like an elder of Internet marketing. In 1999 she landed a job with a Toronto web consulting firm where she answered the phone and tried to learn how to make coffee. As a tea drinker, she never mastered the coffee pot but did earn a new role as a copywriter, researcher and web usability expert. She helped organizations such as Ford, M&M Meat Shops and the Federal Government navigate the emerging online world.
After moving to Newfoundland she continued to propagate her marketing experience and worked with the Corner Brook ITU World Cup Triathlon, the Corner Brook Economic Development Corporation.
Alli learned to ski as part of her job as marketing manager at Marble Mountain Resort. During her nine years there, she also managed all aspects of the resort's marketing activities. She brought social media to Marble Mountain’s marketing toolbox and was the voice of the resort in both traditional and social media.
At Sprout Marketing, Alli works with clients to make content plans for social media and email marketing, and then creates the images and words to make the strategy real. Always accessible, she splits her time between Corner Brook and Exploits Island, a resettled community off Newfoundland’s northeast coast.
Samantha Martin is a professional photographer, writer and editor who lives in Pasadena with her young family. She has spent the past two decades working in the magazine industry as well as running her own business, SAM Living.
Her extensive experience and wide range of interests in everything from the arts and the natural world to travel and business have taken her across the province and around the world in search of what’s intriguing and motivating, making connections, generating ideas, capturing moments and using her skills to share them with the world.
Sam moved to Newfoundland in 2010 from Georgian Bay, Ontario, where she worked as the managing editor of a home design, building and decorating magazine, Our Homes. In 2012, she relocated to Pasadena from St. John’s, where she helped create and run Home & Cabin magazine as editor-in-chief and photographer.
Once on the west coast, Samantha began offering her professional skills beyond the magazine industry, capturing people in their natural environments and helping businesses market themselves to the world through masterful photography and written content. She believes that small businesses are not only the backbone of any economy but also its creative power and source of endless energy.
Sam happily spends her free time hiking, sipping wine, picking wildflowers, playing in puddles with her daughter and trying new things.
