Add3 – Digital Marketing Agency with offices in Seattle & Portland

We’re not always the best at keeping you, our loyal followers, informed on what we’ve been up to. So – I wanted to take this opportunity to give you an inside look at what’s been happening at Amplify Interactive in the last 6 months.

We’ve Grown!

In the last 6 months, we’ve added 3 new team members and filled out the org chart a bit.

We Had to Say Goodbye

Hank, the office dog and Chief Morale Officer was diagnosed with cancer in December and we had to say goodbye to him before the end of the year. The team misses Hank a lot, and I am personally unable to talk about it without bursting into tears. He’ll always be my personal chief morale officer. Hank will be taking on an honorary posthumous title some time soon… once I think of one.

RIP Hank Lloyd: March 2004-Dec 2012


Looking Ahead to 2013

The future is bright for Amplify Interactive. We’ve got some big plans this year, and we’ll share those along the way. In the meantime, Happy New Year. Health, happiness and prosperity to you from the team @ Amplify Interactive.
