Meet the Team

Every day we are growing and connecting with more and more local businesses.  We believe in the power of Instagram to drive the local movement, connect businesses with other like-minded businesses, and are here to help create real and authentic relationships with your customers.

We are passionate, driven, and inspired by every business we work with and that is why we do what we do everyday.

Megan Shallow

Founder & CEO

Megan started BNL out of her love for local.  Her passion for local allowed her to feel like she belonged to a community, had constant support from business owners everywhere, and felt so much love that sometimes she would cry when talking about it.  All of these relationships she made started through connecting over Instagram and she realized she had the power to help.  So she learned everything she could about Instagram, marketing, and the challenges small businesses face...and that is how BNL was born. Megan specializes in brick-and-mortar stores. Her writing is very inspiring, emotionally packed, and always creates connection.

The Human Behaviour Expert

Nicole may look like Megan (She is actually her twin), but her skills are what separate BNL from all other Instagram companies.  Nicole has a Masters in Special Education and is en route to becoming a behavior analyst.  She is hands down one of the most educated people we know who understands human behavior and how people react, connect, and make decisions.  Her understanding of the human brain allows her to be the best person to connect your business with your customer base.  Nicole adds her magic touch to many BNL accounts and when she does...you can totally tell!

Could This Be You?

BNL Media is passionate about growing the local movement but in order to do so, we need more people who love helping small businesses thrive, telling stories, using emojis and being authentic and real online.  If you have built your own social media community and would love to share your talents to help other small businesses do the same - we should talk!
