Dirigo was born digital. We've grown up to be much more!
We help companies build great brands & turn customers into fanbases. It's integrated marketing. It is THE way to market to consumers and businesses.
Tumblr, LinkedIn, Pinterest & Foursquare. Facebook, Twitter, Google+ & Youtube. Original and curated content, an editorial schedule & ads. You gotta’ listen and respond as though your flock was sitting next to you. It’s that simple (well, not really).
From the early days of GoTo to GoogleAdWords, BingAds, Google AdSense & DoubleClick. Pay-per-click, product listings & dynamic auto ads garner immediate eyeballs, clicks & conversion. Period.
The Holy Grail: SEO & best practices. Web users want to be entertained, informed & engaged. Social signals, search & quality content= qualified leads & conversions ($ha-$hing). Focus on users, you’re assured to get results—now it's search marketing integration.
The success of your business is too important to leave to happenstance. We make you look your Sunday best everyday driving onsite and offsite customer reviews though Dirigo’s Applause platform. Then we monitor and help you manage your online reputation.
How your brand looks, what emotion it evokes, whom, when & where you reach your customers is the golden arrow—it’s your promise to customers. Which distribution paths, PR channels, voice & consistency you use leads to positive brand equity.
What do Sun Tzu and Cooper have in common? Strategy rules. We are disciples of Cooper’s book: The Inmates are Running the Asylum. Why you say? Making it easier for users to use natively intuitive websites, social accounts & systems means our clients win.

We host great parties right here in Maine, oh, we mean that we host sweet web properties (in Maine too!) that count on us. While every client’s needs are unique, we generally believe in massively overbuilt hardware, redundant connectivity & local personalized service.
E-commerce and m-commerce—Dirigo has almost a billion bucks in online revenue under our belt. From the sales funnel to PCI, telephony to order fulfillment, CRM systems to online marketplaces, we’ve done it. Carefully coded from the ground up.

Founded in 1932, the Faulkner Organization consists of 22 auto dealerships representing domestic and import franchises. As one of the nation's top dealers, they employ more than 1,000 people and manage more than 45 websites. We actively consult with top management, in partnership with CBC Advertising, as digital change agents. In August 2013 we launched www.faulknerhyundai.com on our responsive Automotive Platform.
Central Distributors was founded in 1934; today they’re a 4th generation family business. They distribute mostly beer and wine to some 2,200 retailers in seven counties from a 95,000 square foot warehouse in Lewiston, Maine. They came to Dirigo needing a brand refresh and a new website. We delivered an awesome fully responsive solution. This is the finest beverage distributor website (and only RWD site) in the Northeast.
In 2007 Kids Crooked House (KCH) won a nationwide Yahoo! contest, based in-part on Victoria's strategic direction. The winnings: help from Ivanka Trump and $100K in marketing dough. Two years later KCH was featured on TLC’s hit show Jon & Kate Plus 8—achieving the top search term worldwide on Google Trends. DIY’s King of Dirt, and scads of episodes of ABC’s Extreme Home Makeover have turned this Internet brand into a superstar.
The MUZZY language program is successful in homes and classrooms the world over because it is based upon three key ideas: children are naturally built to learn languages, children love learning languages, and children can learn any language when given the right environment and support. Dirigo is proud to have engineered the largest subscription-based language video learning portal in the world for children. Work with Early-Advantage began in 2005 and never stops.
For the past ten years, outstanding middle school and high school students have come together at Amherst College, Stanford University, and University of Oxford, with a number of distinguished educators and bright counselors from top colleges, to enjoy an exceptionally fun intellectual experience. We've been their digital partner since 2005 — www.greatbooksummer.com.
