“Torie Mathis is my personal FB advertising ninja. A pleasure to work with (breath of fresh air after a long list) and passionate as they come. 

My company has thousands upon thousands of subscribers directly through my successful FB advertising…. and its 100% thanks to her, her expertise and her commitment. Did I mention what a pleasure she is to deal with?! “

“I stumbled across a business card on another business site that was created by Lake Shark Media I reached out based on that one design for ideas on our annual charity event, which I was in a time crunch on….

Sean & his wife Torie blew me away with their designs, their commitment to the project and their attention to detail. They came through for me and we are now working on our 3rd project together! Candlewood Suites Mooresville Lake Norman uses Lake Shark Media exclusively! I would highly recommend them!!!!!”

“I previously used a corporate marketing firm, and the results were average at best while the cost was high. I switched to Lake Shark Media and I could never go back.

This team is professional, prompt, and most of all, talented. The final product blew me away, and the getting there was actually FUN! To top it off, this veteran-owned business, so I get to feel good about supporting them. You can’t go wrong here. Hire them!”

“Torie Mathis of Lake Shark Media dove right into the design of my new website.  She gave me guidelines for content, profit-making suggestions, ideas for marketing, and recommended some social media tools. She listened, responded quickly and held my hand throughout the design process. All her hard work left me time to tend to other business details. AND, Torie was a joy to work with!”

“I was referred to Lake Shark Media by a friend, and hiring them was the best decision I have made with my business to this day. Torie worked closely with me to create my logo, business cards and stationery. She also designed my website from scratch and maintains it, to include regular updating.

I can’t say enough about how much this company has helped me, from styling a brochure for my clients to choosing a shopping cart for my website. Because of Torie’s timely responses, understanding of my aesthetic and undeniable professionalism, this is a relationship that I plan to keep for the life of my business.”

“When Transguard went looking for someone to overhaul our website, we interviewed carefully before selecting Lake Shark Media. We wanted someone to help us design a site around our goals, and we wanted to avoid using someone who was going to simply plug information about us into a template. We were looking for creative design expertise, and we were looking for technical expertise with how to build our site’s infrastructure.

We wanted a site that would explain our products and convey meaning about who we are as a company. We also wanted our site to be scalable and to be optimized for maximum search-engine relevancy.

On top of it all, we wanted to be able to make our own content changes. Our experience with Lake Shark Media was exactly what we were hoping for. From conceptualization to implementation, to search-engine relevancy, to training us how to maintain our site, Lake Shark has been a pleasure to work with and has done an excellent job of helping us meet our online goals.”

“Lake Shark Media is totally spot on.
Torie is always able to take my ideas and make them into the marketing art for my business that I had imagined…only better. For years she has worked on my book covers, hover ads, developed and redeveloped my web sites and continues to grow and evolve with me in my businesses. She is an absolute pro and her service is of the highest quality and timely beyond my expectations.

For a small business, Lake Shark is affordable and worth every dollar. The #1 comment I get from my clients is how amazing my web site is. Lake Shark Media makes me look as good as I really am. Isn’t that what we all want? Three Cheers!”

“Torie was instrumental in helping our small law firm create a marketing plan, which included new logos, business cards, brochures and a website. She was responsive, easy to get in touch with and creative throughout the process.

She managed the entire process from start to finish, which allowed us to concentrate on our legal work. We definitely will come back to her for any of our future marketing needs.”

“Lake Shark Media has helped my business greatly. She redesigned my website that we are still getting compliments on. One of the greatest thing that they help me with was a buddy pass. Her idea for us to use and what a great idea we have started growing for the first time in a very long time. Thanks to Torie’s website overhaul, Facebook and buddy pass. Thank you.”

“Lake Shark Media helped me get my business off the ground when I needed business cards and other materials created and printed. As a small business owner, I depend on good quality and pricing. Lake Shark offers great pricing and is efficient when producing materials. I would highly recommend them to any business small and large.”

Darren Scott
Owner, Soundsation

“Torie was simply wonderful to work with long-distance and via email. She was so efficient that when my office initially started using “In The Neighborhood”, I thought there were several people answering my inquiries, and “Torie” was a name created by the company to give the impression of a personal relationship with the publisher!

She quickly understood my needs and was creative and flexible regarding special requests. I highly recommend Torie in any information service capacity and I have great expectations for her future.”
