Our History

The Portland Company was started by Spencer Hill, under a different name, in early 2005. By 2007 we contracted our first graphic designer began shifting from strictly a website development company to a full service internet marketing agency.

By 2009 we had design and programming staff that developed fully-featured WordPress websites and were developing our process for search engine optimization (SEO) services and other search marketing and social media marketing services. By 2011 we had multiple success stories of our clients not only ranking in the top three positions of Google’s first-page results, but increased sales and maximized conversion rates for customers.

Throughout this time we hired more staff to service our clients’ needs and officially introduced web application development as a service – typically complimentary to Website Development.

Today, we are a full service digital marketing agency offering strategy-first services. This means we're also an email marketing company, conversion rate optimization experts, and advertising management (PPC management) professionals

Coyotes, native wildlife to Portland and the greater Pacific Northwest, are experts in survival and growth. They’re also opportunistic and have an incredible ability to scout the landscape and find what they need to grow and protect their pack.

We found this beautiful animal to be a symbol, not only of Portland, but encapsulating the essence of tenacity required to thrive and expand in the competitive world of business.

Leveraging our 18 years of expertise, we've mastered the dynamic landscape of internet marketing. We don't just survive Google’s algorithm changes or economic downturns; we navigate them deftly. With precision in every circumstance, we confidently guide your business to its marketing and revenue targets.


Though we have reviews and testimonials all across the internet, local business like Rip City Reviews have some things to say about us.
