Our Digital Marketing Agency

Back in 1996, our founder Shawn Moore began Inc. with just a single computer that he used to kickstart the company. Over time, we’ve kept that original machine framed and on display, as a testament to how far we’ve come as an agency.

Shawn’s entrepreneurial journey began with the SEEDS program at Douglas College, where he developed the business plan that would launch ThinkProfits. With only three employees, our first office was situated in Shawn’s home in South Surrey.

Our company was handpicked to be one of four tasked with building, marketing, and selling the Yellow Pages. This success led us to secure more contracts with other clients, such as Telus and Dominion Directories.

Then in 1998, Google arrived, and we set our sights on getting our clients’ websites onto Page 1 of Google search results. As we grew, we remained committed to a strategy-first approach to our work, which has allowed us to continue to thrive and expand.
