About Front Street Media
The Background and History of Front Street Media
Front Street Media was developed with the intention to provide a high level of customer service with extreme attention to detail. Front Street Media was born in 2015 after owner Brenan Greene ventured off on his own from working in the web design and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) industry since 2005. Brenan Greene has started many successful online eCommerce companies that have grown and sold over the years with the tools of online marketing, SEO (Search Engine Optimization), social media, CRO and much more.
The road in getting to Front Street has been composed of long nights, early mornings and literally thousands of coffees. Brenan’s experience in SEO goes back to 2005 and since then many things have changed in the search engines. Learning the changes and staying on top of these changes are imperative for client success and the success of Front Street Media. Brenan has attended many of the top industry conventions and seminars including Adobe Max, Search Marketing Expo (SMX) and the SEO MozCon to name a few. The current team at Front Street Media is a fun and friendly staff of SEO experts, website designers, and awesome inbound marketing strategists.
The Background of the Owner, Brenan Greene
It all started with SEO : )
Brenan Greene started working for a local internet marketing company in Folsom, CA his senior year of high school (back in 2005). The job was selling directory SEO (Search Engine Optimization) campaigns to local businesses in El Dorado Hills, Folsom, Granite Bay and the greater Sacramento area. Once Brenan realized the power of SEO, he began to learn everything he possibly could. Staying up late at night and getting up early in the morning, Brenan was cramming his head with SEO knowledge and expertise almost every day. He was learning information like proper content creation, link baiting, link building and not to mention the fun stuff like HTML and CSS.
Brenan got his main information from an amazing podcast called The Ten Golden Rules Of Online Marketing [Jay Berkowitz]. This blog and podcast, not to mention SEO, were very new at the time and have grown over the years. This podcast covered many areas of online marketing and internet marketing including SEO, SEM (Search Engine Marketing), Backlinks, Adwords and much more.
Beyond the Ten Golden Rules of Internet Marketing, Brenan was following the top SEO blogs that were pushing out some amazing content at the time and still are today. Some of these blogs may include MOZ, Search Engine Land, and Search Engine Journal. When following these blogs and websites, Brenan soon realized that he needed to switch focus from directory SEO to domain names, website design and full blown eCommerce SEO, this is where the real challenge would be.
Moving on to Small Business Website Design and Ecommerce SEO
Things got crazy! : )
Once Brenan moved from developing SEO campaigns on directory websites to purchasing domain names and developing websites for small businesses, he soon realized… he was pretty damn good. With the success of hundreds of small business website designs and SEO, Brenan moved on to bigger projects like eCommerce store SEO and national market SEO campaigns.
Brenan built a handful of personal niche market eCommerce sites which have been wildly successful and has since built out many more for his clients over the years. With the experience and passion for SEO, Brenan knew he would be at the top of his game and ahead of the competition in no time.
Working for a Web Development Company Full Time
In 2008, Brenan started working with a start-up web development company full time. His roles and duties at this web development company were to take on many areas of expertise as he was managing partner. Duties and skills included SEO, SEM, PPC, Social Media, Website Design and Development, Graphic Design, Print Design, Brand Identity/ Logo Design and much more. Brenan led this start-up website design company to a rise in company revenue, growth and company-wide success. After almost 8 years of working full time for this web development company, Brenan knew it was time for his own.
The birth of Front Street Media and what was in store for the future
Brenan saw the need for something different in a website design company in El Dorado Hills. What bothered Brenan about traditional web design companies was their lack of service diversity. The lack of diversity in services offered was something that needed to be capitalized on for the “FULL SERVICE” of web design.
These areas of service where most web development companies were lacking would include Photography, Content Writing, Inbound Marketing, Brand Awareness Marketing, CRO (Conversion Rate Optimization) and much more. Once these services were made readily available from a web design company, a client wouldn’t need to jump through hoops in order to find these services elsewhere.
