– MRM Client


Our Story

Market Refined Media is a collective of women who have partnered together to share their knowledge, experience, and skills with the online world. Over the last decade, the team has expanded from a hub for freelance work for social media managers, virtual assistants, and developers to a full-scale agency offering services ranging from marketing to brand coaching and design to independent publishing. As an online business that has grown alongside all the web and social media growth of the last ten years, MRM knows what it takes for our clients to be successful. Our desire is to offer much more than just one service or solution, but instead to be the solution for all brand or online needs.

MRM was originally founded (as “Mandy Roberson Media”) by Mandy Roberson in 2012. Mandy worked as a virtual assistant, social media manager, and editor seeking to supplement her monthly income by supporting others online. After seeing the challenges so many authors, ministries, and small businesses face – managing the tasks, hiring the right people, and budgeting for their goals – Mandy had a vision to create a one-stop shop capable of calming the chaos and simplifying the process. By 2015, business and client demands had grown drastically, providing Mandy with a steady income and the need to expand her team and services. That surge of growth ultimately led to the team of women and the list of services known today as Market Refined Media.


Our Mission

Our purpose is to be a solid team of professionals who offer services and expertise to our clients in a way that simplifies their goals, saves them time and money, and ensures a high quality product in exchange for their investment. 

Our Vision

Our hope is to serve as an invaluable resource for authors, ministries, and small businesses. We desire to do all that we do with excellence, continue to expand our expertise, and be a team of professionals who is 100% invested in the success of our clients. 

Our Values

Our core values are those of honesty, integrity, service, and respect. We strive to honor God and our faith in all we do, which is reflected in the ways we conduct our business, engage and partner with our clients and colleagues, and work together as a team.


Our Team

Our in-house team will become your partners, the architects of your ideas! Whether we design and build your website or blog; design and format your soon-to-be bestseller for digital and print release; bring your target audience to you via SEO or social media audits and strategies; or build that e-commerce shop and fill it with your custom creations… Our team believes in YOU, your ministry, and your message. This is the team that will enable you to share it with the world.
