Micheal Brandvold is a pleasure to work with.  His expertise and experience is a great asset to anybody looking to strengthen their career via online marketing and SEO.  I’m looking forward to working with Michael on my new website some time! - Ian Wilkerson

I had the privilege to work with Michael Brandvold over a few months on a pr campaign for Aoede’s album Affair with the Muse. Michael’s role was to set up a new WordPress website for Aoede as well as to provide recommendations on marketing strategies for Aoede’s social networks (Facebook, Twitter, blogging). Michael was extremely accessible and responsive, professional and went above and beyond to make Aoede’s new website really sparkle. Michael even provided Aoede a tutorial of the new website and its features, making the transition from administering one website to another much easier. Further, Michael provided helpful suggestions along the way to ensure Aoede was making best use of social networks for maximum exposure. Even after completing the campaign, Michael continues to send helpful information. I would work with Michael again in a heartbeat and highly recommend him for building a website and for sage advice on marketing. - Lisa Sniderman/Aoede

I’m very pleased with the work Michael Brandvold did creating my website. Not only did he come up with a great looking site, it’s also very easy to maintain and update.

He went beyond the call of duty explaining how the site functions and even gave me some marketing tips.  - Mark Nawara, owner of Goomba Music

EON Records has a fresh, updated look to showcase all of our musical talents thanks to Michael Brandvold Marketing. A Portland, Oregon record label, we needed to update our website to blend with our new releases. We needed a quick turn-around and Michael responded. Not only did Michael come up with an innovative site – with video and audio capabilities, photos and rotating panels – he also suggested marketing ideas, taught us
how to update the site on our own through WordPress.org and remains just a click away for any quick question. - John Thayer, owner of EON Records in Portland, OR
and brother of guitarist Tommy Thayer from KISS

Working with Michael on the updated EON Records website was a breeze. Actually, it was so easy to work with him that I’m already tossing him ideas for other website updates for my clients. Thanks, Michael, for making the site look awesome and in such a short
amount of time. Anyone who needs a professional site needn’t look anywhere else – although, I’d like to keep him all to myself. – Nicole DeCosta, owner of Nicole DeCosta Media in Portland, OR
