-Founder/CEO at Libby King & Associates, LLC

"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."

-Alice Waagan, President, Workforce Learning

"It is my pleasure to recommend Peg. I have attended more than one of her seminars. They are always dynamic, informative and fun. I enjoyed the opportunity to ask any question that came to mind. Her presentation style is great. 

Peg knows a great deal about social media, especially the LinkedIN platform. I learned a great deal and will apply what I have learned in the coming months. In the future, I won't make a social media move, without contacting her first. "

- Rhonald Angelo, Rhonald Angelo Interiors

"I saw Peg give a presentation on social media outreach and she managed to cram more actionable insights into one hour than you get from most half-day seminars. She's great with both the overall strategy and tactical how-to's -- some of which I was able to put into use that same day to really boost my online presence."

Richard Sheehe, Strategic Communications Practitioner, Researcher & Consultant. PIO360.com founder and lead trainer

"On several occasions, I have attended social media workshops Peg has given. Peg has helped me and other non-profits, to understand and organize our social media strategies. She is a great speaker and presenter, patient and knows all the ins and outs that can help an organization flourish on the web and help drive growth.
Peg has a wealth of social media marketing and web development knowledge. If you're looking to educate yourself on the latest social media, marketing trends or strategies, or want to hire someone to do it for you, I would highly recommend Peg McDermott."

Gina Cocomello, Marketing and Outreach, NV Rides

"Peg McDermott and her team at COGO Interactive have an extensive knowledge and experience in the realm of social media. Peg worked directly with our boutique wealth management firm in the development and implementation of our organization's social media strategy and presence. Her guidance and work were critical in our efforts to communicate to our target markets and elevate our firm's presence in the online world. Through LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook or Google+, Peg and COGO crafted our social media strategy, explained the potential risks and concerns for social media and ensured that the appropriate structure was implemented for managing social media within our organization. I have worked with Peg over the last two years and have found her to be results-driven and exhibit the highest standards of professionalism. I strongly recommend her to any firm seeking to build and increase its online presence."
 

Richard Weyers, CFO, Traust Sollus Wealth Management

“Peg and her team at COGO Interactive was responsible for converting and redesigning our new website to a mobile friendly, WordPress site and making sure the back end is correct for SEO purposes. They worked tirelessly to make it perfect and are very customer focused. They guided me through the learning phases of WordPress and provided sage business and marketing advice at the same time. Other companies who I compared them with didn’t seem dedicated to the client’s end goal, like Cogo is.”

Ellen Kandell, President of Alternative Resolutions

“COGO Interactive has been our web marketing and SEO partner since February of 2012 and we could not be happier with their services. In addition to coding support, website optimization and weekly blogging, Peg and the team at COGO have served as a resource to Four Sales. Of all their services, the blog authoring has had the most measurable impact on our success. The weekly blogging support has helped cement Four Sales’ reputation as a subject matter expert in collectibles and the purchase/sale of 2nd hand property. COGO has consistently provided capable writers who understand the message, style and format of the material we want to deliver our readers. Thank you Peg McDermott and COGO for your excellent support! ”

Daniel Sanders, President Four Sales Ltd.

“Peg has been an instrumental partner in helping us revive and refine our social media program. From audience analysis to site integration, content strategy development and program evaluation, her skills and expertise have been essential to our success. With her team’s help our followers have tripled and our level of engagement is at all time high.”

Gwen Parson, Senior Vice President, Nomadic Display

“Peg is clearly an expert in the social marketing realm. We enjoyed working with Peg and her staff to update our website and plug us into the social marketing world. We were never able to tie everything together ourselves. Peg put together a plan and coached us through implementation. She has creative ideas and delivers on time for good value vs cost. The best part is that she has set us up so that we can handle most of our online marketing maintenance in-house to keep costs down. We have her on an inexpensive maintenance plan for the few things that are over our heads technically. Let Peg organize you and get your social marketing rolling!”

Patrick Readyhough, President, Pond Roofing

Peg is an invaluable asset to us; generating positive results for our company. We have seen a drastic improvement in our online visibility and we are all much more focused on the goals ahead. Working with Peg has been a absolute pleasure and I would recommend her to anyone. I personally look forward to working with her in the future.”

Betsy Pond, Pond Roofing

“Peg does an excellent job from the first meeting with a client to the entire execution of the project. I have recommended her to several of my clients and each one has been very pleased with her work, her prices and her ability to know what needs to be done to increase their marketing presence. If you haven’t been working with Peg I strongly encourage you to do so and find out how much more business you can attract!.”

Joan Fletcher, President, Winning Ways, Inc.

Prospects leave our meetings feeling informed, comfortable with our abilities, fully prepared and looking forward to working with our team. And the best part is that she fully delivers on those up front impressions.”

Jen Sterling, President, Red Thinking, LLC

“We here at Flooring America and FA Design Build went into agreement with Peg McDermott and her company COGO Interactive 3 years ago. Our goal at the time was to improve our web sites and get our web presence off of the ground. Peg far exceeded our expectations as our sites were immediately cleaned up and we began to receive clients through her internet marketing efforts. Her representation of our company was flawless and she treated everyone she came in contact with in the most respectful way possible. As a result of her efforts our company grew to the point where we now are in a position to hire a full time Internet Marketing person. We anticipate still needing Peg’s expertise at times and truly appreciate the professional way she has handled this transition.”

Rob Menefee, President, Flooring America & FA Design Build

“Peg is one of my all time favorite people. Not only is she a subject matter expert in Social Media, I can testify that on a daily basis, she actually implements the principles she teaches within her own company and with her clients. Peg epitomizes the consummate professional of grassroots marketing. She has defined her local market, rises to the top of each organization in which she participates, and makes everyone around her better, whether they attend one of her workshops or just chat with her for a few minutes. In short, she is one of my heroes, and although, I give out praise very sparingly, she has my highest recommendation.”

President at Homeland Tech\Owner of PostNet Vienna

“Peg’s attention to detail, intuitive and effective responses to challenging obstacles and unwavering dedication to her clients is truly what sets her apart. She is a rare person who not only has an incomparable expertise and knowledge in her field, but who also invests her time into the education and enrichment of others. Peg understands what’s at the heart of leadership: to lead in service over her own self interests. Peg genuinely cares about her business relationships and will go above and beyond to make sure you are a success as well.”

Mylene Thomas, Director of Business Development, FA Design Build

“What can I say! I fought doing any more web promotion after bad results with two other companies. Peg convinced me to try it “her” way and the results have been staggering! The business that Undercover Printer is receiving from our online presence is more than we are getting from all the networking, referrals and advertising – combined. It really does work when it is done correctly.
Thank you Peg and COGO Interactive!”

Amy Zydel, CEO, Undercover Printer, Inc

“From the moment Rob Menefee, President of Flooring America/FA Design Build, and I met with Peg from COGO, we were impressed with her knowledge of marketing, website development and SEO. We had met with several other companies, but not one of them presented themselves like COGO! In the short time we have worked together, Peg and her team of experts have improved our positioning, provided us with “real” documentation that shows our progress and have gone above and beyond to develop a marketing plan. I believe COGO is the best in the business.”

LaTanya Montes, Vice President, FA Design Build/Flooring America

Scott Jedlinski, VP of Sales , Option 1Title

Thank you for your assistance during our Search Engine Optimization (SEO) process. You were instrumental in elevanting the Company’s web site on the internet and having a much greater success with web site hits from organic searches. Your knowledge concerning adding new web site content (i.e. how to and what type) was invaluable.
Additionally your work and guidance was very helpful to our administrative staff in the complete process along with interfacing with our web developer to ensure a more professional and inviting look and feel for our website. You also were very helpful in guiding the administrative staff in choosing and signing up for the most advantageous directories which have helped drive additional web traffic to our website.
Your help and guidance allowed my Company to change the website from a static almost billboard like presence to an interactive revenue generating asset. We have already had new clients find us via the website and I am sure this will continue in the future. Please feel free to use this recommendation for your company Cogo Interactive and/or have your client prospects call me to discuss my experience.
