Marin Davis, Founder of Local Collaborative
Hey there, I’m Marin!
If you lost every material thing you have, what would you have left to give?
What would people remember about you?
About your brand?
I founded Local Collaborative with one thing in mind: Pair simple, creative approaches with strong, clear communication strategies to provide small businesses with the marketing they need to succeed. I collaborate with you to create a brand people will fall in love with and remember.
Since being a military spouse requires constant moving and adaptation, I had a dream to collaborate with talented professionals I’ve worked with during my years in the advertising and marketing industry. By pairing up teammates to fit exactly what you need Local Collaborative gets executive level results with a hometown experience.
My favorite thing to do is re/brand companies and think out of the box for witty, fresh marketing campaign approaches.
I don’t believe things need to be extravagant or expensive to make an impact.
There is more value in simplicity than clutter and noise. When you have less to hide there is more to show. Everyone has something to give to the world and there won’t be a dollar amount or perfect time to start. It’s best to start now.
Right now I’m living with my husband and rescue mutt in North Carolina. I love hiking to summit mountains and exploring new cities in areas we move to (or have dreamt of visiting). My favorite cities are full of historic importance or cozy, quaint atmospheres. I write about all of our adventures in the Passport section of my blog here. I’m always up for any adventure outdoors, trying out new fitness experiences and a nice, cold beer.
I’m excited to work with you. Let’s get you back to what makes you happy.
Need something done but you’re just not sure WHAT?
We have app developers, videographers, photographers and many more Local Collaborators ready to make your business dreams come true.
As someone in the process of setting up small online business, Marin’s expertise was invaluable! With a consultation and a formalized presentation she helped me take things to the next level. I will definitely be back as I continue to build!
Local Collaborative and Marin have been such a huge blessing in recreating and re-branding my new blog site! I simply could not have done it without her. Go check out what she had to say and visit her site. 😁 Marin, thank you so much for jumping starting my re- brand! It has been so fun to work together after the years. You do amazing work, and I can’t wait until my finishing touches are complete 🙂 Thank you, thank you! 💜
Local Collaborative is such a great business to work with. Marin assisted me with my website redesign and gave me some marketing tools and tips to further advance my business. Within a week of my hiring her, my website was complete! She was efficient, knowledgeable, and incredibly helpful. On top of that, she was so patient and answered every single question I had. She took the time to explain to me each step in the process, in addition to giving me a walk through of the new platform so that I would be able to make any small changes on my own. I now feel that I can begin the next step in my career as a photographer, with a website that reflects my style and who I am. Thank you so much Marin!
We had Marin look at our business image. I was very impressed with her analysis. It was in depth and revealed some very important areas where we needed to improve or change. She brought up strategies I hadn’t even thought of and will implement. Donze & Associates would heartily recommend her to any other company.
Marin is sweet, kind, and has a huge heart. She loves what she does. She loves helping others. Whether it’s helping for business purposes or even just a quick ear to lend to someone, she’s always there. Her blogs are incredible. She speaks the truth, and says what we all need to hear some days. Truly a remarkable person!
Local Collaborative was great to work with! I actually contacted Marin and needed things within a short time frame! She was completely willing to help me and not only finished my project early but ordered it for me and had it sent to my house!
Marin is professional and talented and I would absolutely use her again!

Writes inspiring blog posts and is an all around good person. Would always love working with her.
Local Collaborative is so easy to work with! I was given a wealth of knowledge and so many great ideas. While I consider myself a creative person it was nice to have someone help me focus on what I want my brand to be.
