I have been working with Peg and her Cogo team of advisors for the past 3 years. They are beyond professional in all ways from the top down. Even her outside developers that are curated by her should be well trusted. Everything she has said that she will do…is done to the letter. When you are ready to move your business up a notch, then this is the company to hire.

We are more than happy with the work done for us by Cogo Interactive. We’ve been working together for about six years now, and have received support both for SEO on our web site and with social media postings. Cogo Interactive’s work has resulted in our being positioned well in search results for the topics that are important to us. Additionally, Cogo Interactive is very thoughtful and thorough producing social media postings on the platforms we use: Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. I’m happy to give them five stars here. You won’t find a more honest, sincere, and thorough company to work with.

I’ve spent years trying to figure out how to use social media to market my consulting practice. Peg created a marketing strategy for me that makes sense and, best of all, will require far less work on my part than my current efforts. Peg is great to work with, very clear about the process and keeps deadlines and commitments. I highly recommend Peg to any business struggling to effectively market on social media.

I have known and worked with Peg for several years and I have always been impressed with the commitment to her clients. She doesn’t believe in one size fits all. She spends time with each of her clients to determine what solution best fits their needs. She always holds herself accountable to ensure her clients are satisfied and receive a service they perceive as valuable to the growth of their business.
