Unfortunately, much of the past work we’ve done was in the early days of the internet, as well as being the proprietary material of the employers or clients we did that work for. And, of course, as is typical these days, many of our clients have been acquired or closed up shop since we worked for them, and their websites went with them into the ether. But, we do have some examples of marketing and digital marketing, some links to websites we designed, and a great many examples of content available.
Additionally, there is a substantial LinkedIn profile available on Brendan Moore, and while it doesn’t have any more examples of my work than the amount here, it does have a great many recommendations from previous peers, managers and clients. So, you can at least see that we know what I’m doing, have been doing very good work for a long time, and people are happy with the results after everything’s said and done. If you go to the top of the page and click on the LinkedIn icon, you’ll go to Brendan Moore’s professional profile on the site post haste. He’s been on the site since 2002, so plenty of time to rack up recommendations.
This website is in its intermediate stages, and we’ll add to the portfolio examples here as we go along. You can look at the drop-down categories for what we have so far, with the knowledge that there will be more shown in the near future.

Wedon’t write code; we’re not developers, although we employ developers quite frequently on website builds. But, we do have skills in Drupal, WordPress and Joomla, and other website platforms. We have basic HTML, SEO and Google Analytics proficiency, as far as website development and content goes, and experience with different social media platforms like Google+, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Pininterest, etc. – all of which we gained while doing extensive work developing and writing for different clients/employers. We also have a considerable amount of experience setting up and maintaining business profiles (company pages) with business aggregator and review sites like Yelp, Thumbtack, Yahoo, Bing for Business, Online Yellow Pages, Trip Advisor, Urban Spoon, etc.
