Meet the SEO Agency: Mad Fish SEO in Portland, OR

Headquartered just above a trendy shoe store and downtown Portland’s famous food cart block, Mad Fish SEO has a good view of the city to say the least. Ben Herman, Mad Fish SEO founder, allowed me to stop by for a quick interview where he revealed a little of what it’s like to run an SEO agency. He told me how he first became interested in doing SEO, how he got his first customer and what he looks for in new hires. Afterwards I asked Ben where the name Mad Fish came from. He replied, “It’s from the proverb that says, ‘Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will eat for the rest of his life.’ The idea is that we know how to fish.” I like the way these people think. They’ve got a sense of humor, personality and the brains necessary for search engine optimization.

Upon walking into the agency’s office I felt a weight taken off of my shoulders; I quickly understood that these people were not corporate snobs who were all business all the time. They were eating lunch together in the meeting room, kindly making me at home in their office abode by offering coffee or water, laughing together, working together. The visit to their office gave me a glimpse of life into the work of an SEO agency. They work together for a common goal: the success of others’ online presence. And they have a good time while doing it.
