Bad Axe Enterprises is a locally owned company from the Driftless Region of the Midwest. We specialize in tailoring digital media services to your business's exact needs. We do not have preset packages. We are not into cookie cutter solutions.


If you need someone to build your website from the ground up, manage your existing site, enhance your web presence, create a custom social media plan, design logos and branding, packaging, print materials, or take sweet pictures and capture rad video: you found us.


Each client's needs are unique, so each project is unique. Let us help you engage your target audience so you can get back to doing what you do best: running your business.


I'm Carolyn. A boisterous, curiosity driven creative entrepreneur. I started Bad Axe Enterprises LLC in 2015 to help out a friend who desperately wanted a marketing expert on her team. Five years later, and Bad Axe has not stopped rising to each new challenge it meets. Just ask our clients!


Besides managing all things Bad Axe, I raise two amazing, curious kids with my best friend, life partner, and crucial member of the Bad Axe team: Caleb. We are a highly creative duo who each come from a long line of entrepreneurs, farmers, and business owners. In our free time, we experiment with woodworking, textile arts, networking, and homesteading. 

If you reach out to Bad Axe, you will be chatting with me, Carolyn! I'm your go-to for all things design, marketing, social media, website, and branding. Caleb is your guy for small business networking projects and infrastructure design. Contact us for further info regarding our networking solutions.


Bluffs and valleys mark the geography of our Driftless region: the unique part of the midwest that glaciers didn't touch. My personal favorite river valley is the Bad Axe River: from the first time I laid eyes on it I felt its magnetic pull. Ask anyone who lives in the Driftless, especially if they have lived away for a time like I have. The call of the Driftless is inexplicable. 


When it came time to name this business, I wanted something bold, memorable, and a touch playful. Something that honored the magnetic pull I feel to this region. Something...Bad Axe.

Join this adventure.

Let's make your business a Bad Axe business!
