“The values of the world we inhabit and the people we surround ourselves with have a profound effect on who we are.”
My amazing colleagues, clients, and partners in service play a huge part in my success. In their words, here’s what it’s like to work with me.
DIRECTOR OF MARKETING
Saylor was my right-hand-woman to build out a new modern marketing machine at Switch Automation for nearly 3 years. It was a complete labor of love--where Saylor demonstrated great abilities in strategic planning and research, tactical execution and operational change management.
From becoming a HubSpot super-user / strategic advisor; to our media / analyst relations expert; content-creation wizard and sales / marketing liaison, Saylor had her hand in every angle of our integrated marketing approach. Not only did she ensure we executed beautifully, but she set us up for the long-term future by creating the foundational processes that now guide our growing team.
I've always had extreme faith that when I handed a project to Saylor, no matter how big or small, that it would be executed to the highest standard, on time, on budget and with thoughtful rationale for every decision. She was also instrumental in onboarding and training new team-members across our organization--helping them skill up in our industry, value proposition and 'Switch-ways,' which very much requires a special kind of personality and approach--a role she especially shined in. I have to thank Saylor deeply for the long-lasting impact she made on our company; she's left quite an imprint on all that we continue to do today.
SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT & CMO
I actually had the privilege of working with Saylor in different capacities - as an event partner of Quick Left and an employee. She joined my marketing team because she wanted hands-on training in modern marketing techniques so she could transform her career. In the process of doing that, she transformed Quick Left. In her short time here, she conducted SEO audits resulting in more inbound leads, constructed massive workflows in our marketing automation software that cleaned up over 60,000 customer data points, streamlined and improved Sales and Marketing communication efforts, created tracking systems through Google Analytics, and represented Quick Left at outward-facing events as if she worked here for years. All of these activities resulted in more strategic campaigns, better data to work with, and saved us some money along the way, too. Saylor is a must-have-individual who will make a significant impact on your marketing team.
I had the pleasure of working with Saylor during her time as the Sales & Marketing Fellow at Quick Left. She left an established career and joined our company to gain an in-depth understanding of Digital Marketing and was a supportive complement to our sales team. Because of her previous experience in sales roles, Saylor brought fresh insights to Quick Left's Inbound and Outbound marketing strategies. She also spearheaded an intensive data cleanup of HubSpot, our marketing automation software, which led to a savings of over $10,000 in just 3 months. She cultivated positive relationships with our sales and account executives, and often referred warm leads that she had established relationships within her former professions. Saylor is purposeful and deliberate in her pursuit of revenue, always striving to drive the most qualified traffic via SEO, content marketing and lead nurturing. She regularly sought feedback from me and the rest of the leadership team on how she could continue to improve and contribute. Her sense of humor and willingness to learn made her a valuable asset during her tenure.
FOUNDER & CEO
I met Saylor (aka Meghan) in mid-2015 when she joined Bold Betties as a member. Her passion, drive, and determination were immediately noteworthy and as I got to know her over the following year, I continued to be impressed with her in numerous ways. She jumped in with both feet as a member of our community and quickly became a huge champion of our brand on her own volition. When we had a need for a savvy marketing director and social media strategist, we didn't even reach out to anyone else. There was no question that Saylor was the best person for the role. She is a tremendous self-starter, has fantastic ideas and implements them with (much appreciated) urgency and skillful execution. We don't have to supervise any of her work - we can rest assured when Saylor is involved. Beyond her ethic, her skills are well-honed. She is a true technical marketer and has actively sought out the skills and knowledge required to add tremendous value in MarTech. She is a rare find and any company or team able to snag her will benefit greatly.
FOUNDER & PRINCIPAL
I met Saylor shortly after I joined Bold Betties and was looking for help in social media marketing strategy and execution. Bold Betties could not have found a better match! Saylor is capable, superbly knowledgeable about social-media (strategy, best practices, tools, processes and methodologies). Not only that, she acts with a great sense of urgency and makes things happen. As the result of her taking over our Social Media Marketing, we have seen *significant* growth in reach, views, engagement, and ultimately action. She did all of that with little direction and in fact, she has been giving me and the rest of the leadership team very robust perspective on social media and digital marketing. Lastly (but certainly not least), Saylor demonstrates great communication skills, teamwork and emotional intelligence. Saylor is well-rounded, biased towards action and making a difference. She is truly an asset and will deliver value, *immediately*. She is a rare find!

Saylor is a very dedicated and innovative professional who works hard to deliver for her clients. She provided us with essential research and operational services in 2015. Saylor is incredibly energetic and she picks up new information so quickly! Saylor is a great resource and we are looking forward to working with her in the future!
REGIONAL VICE PRESIDENT OF SALES
Meghan Saylor is the consummate professional and has excellent business acumen. Saylor was such an asset to our sales team through her tireless efforts, understanding of the business, attention to the details, and self-motivated diligence. I am thankful to have had Saylor as a member of my team.
SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT
I had the pleasure of supervising Saylor in numerous property management and leadership roles for numerous years. She is a superb multi-tasker who easily takes charge of any position she is placed in and always has delivered outstanding results. From sales to operations to new business development and marketing, Saylor understands all facets of business and is a pleasure to work with.
REGIONAL VICE PRESIDENT
As a Property Manager, Saylor displayed the highest amount of integrity and professionalism. Her excellent verbal and written communication skills enabled her to provide the residents of her community with five-star customer service. Saylor's enthusiastic approach to resident satisfaction positioned her appropriately as a rising leader in the Property Management industry. She possesses an extremely supportive nature and a hands-on approach to every task. Saylor would be an asset to any employer seeking true leadership, innovation, and excellent work ethics.
SENIOR ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE
Saylor and I connected at the HubSpot User Group in Denver, and began working closely together to optimize her HubSpot instance for Switch Automation. Saylor is a HubSpot power user on both the Sales + Marketing platform and used HubSpot to execute on several strategic initiatives. She brings a positive attitude to every problem and is tenacious in her approach - she is such a pleasure to work with!
Saylor was a valuable member of the Quick Left Marketing team. With her extensive background in sales, she brought fresh insights into the challenges faced by our team. Saylor helped deliver forward-thinking solutions in order to achieve like-minded goals for the Sales and Marketing teams. She quickly ramped up on the marketing processes used on a daily basis and embraced learning new technologies and skills from day one. Saylor is one of the most positive people I have ever met. Her willingness to learn from others and develop strong relationships with people she has only known for a short period of time plays a big part in her success as a team-oriented individual. While Saylor focused on being a team player she was able to utilize her industry knowledge in Sales and willingness to learn in order to work independently and own projects from start to finish. I highly recommend Saylor for a digital marketing position at any company involved in the fast-paced, agile technology industry. She will not only deliver on her responsibilities as a team member but discover ways to improve processes and make the team she's apart of more efficient.
Saylor has a dedication to delivering results. She worked tirelessly during her time on the Quick Left marketing team to understand our process, assess their weaknesses and opportunities, and make comprehensive recommendations for improvement. She is positive, sincere, and a delight to work with. Saylor is a great addition to any team.
I only worked with Saylor for three months, but it was amazing how much value and energy she brought to Quick Left. Saylor took the temporary position at Quick Left to fully expose herself to a new industry, and I have a ton of respect for her initiative and drive. Not only did she learn a lot about marketing in a tech company, but she brought a great deal of knowledge to the table as well. She was able to get up to speed almost immediately, and she was an incredible extension of Quick Left's marketing team. Not only that, but Saylor has a great sense of humor and always brought a smile into the office. I hope that we'll get the opportunity to work together again down the road.
I had the distinct honor to work with Saylor for nearly 2 years at Erickson Living. She is motivated, passionate and deliberate in her work pursuits and the people in her life. Saylor is the epitome of professionalism and strives every day to better herself and the people around her. She is relentless in her work ethic and gives her all in everything she does.
STUDENT SUCCESS ADVISOR
Saylor is one of the most generous, talented and hard-working professionals I’ve ever met. I have been fortunate to have a talented group of mentors throughout my professional career, but Saylor's ambition, kindness, and impeccable work make her the first person I call for advice. I recently left academia for the startup world and Saylor was my go-to guide while navigating the daunting job hunt process. Despite her other commitments in the community, she always made time to answer my questions, help me through the process and ensure that I was well prepared for interviews and negotiations. With Saylor’s help, I landed a role at my dream company within a month of applying. Saylor coached me to think strategically about my short- and long- term goals, ensuring I am set up for success throughout my career. I truly hope our paths lead us to the same team because any company will be forever improved by her positive impact.
SALES ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE
It is a rarity that you get to meet such a selfless, caring, friend and mentor to help you in life. I had the pleasure of meeting Saylor and building an amazing friendship over the past 9 months. Recently, I was on the market and with Saylor’s guidance and strategically brilliant approach to marketing (myself) to startup companies, I was able to land a dream job. Without hesitation, she helped me brand myself and coached me in a way that made me stand out from the rest of the candidates - I had an offer on the table before I left the interview. Saylor’s winning combination of sales experience/marketing guruness/ and contagiously positive attitude is something I truly admire and look up to. I hope one day we can work together as I know any organization she is part of will be a winning team. Saylor’s leadership and drive make her an immediate asset to any team or organization starting on Day 1.
DIGITAL ACCOUNT MANAGER
It’s rare that you come across inspirational talent like Saylor. I had the opportunity to work with her at the Denver Post planning well-known events. As soon as she accepted the position, I was in awe of her Executive Leadership skills. I was particularly impressed by her passion as the Events Director and her commitment to the success of the organization. Her attention to detail and desire to collaborate with others made a dramatic difference in the productivity level of our team. No matter how tense a situation, Saylor made sure everyone left with a smile. As a team leader and mentor, Saylor earns my highest recommendation.
DIGITAL MARKETING & MEDIA RELATIONS STRATEGIST
While at the Denver Post, Saylor was able to clearly articulate the value of event marketing to clients and staff. Saylor was a strong mentor to me personally; she delivered the materials and coaching needed to market event opportunities to our clients effectively. Saylor demonstrated her leadership and teamwork abilities immediately after she began her position as Director of Events. Her expertise in marketing complex events enabled us to successfully execute our company's largest event of the year. Saylor is reliable and establishes trust with clients and colleagues alike. I highly recommend Saylor as she has demonstrated professionalism, achievement, and empathy in the time that I worked with her.
