Benjamin Lloyd – President

Founder. Industry Speaker. World Traveler.

Ben Lloyd’s Internet marketing experience started in 1999 as an offshoot of his music industry background where he had the opportunity to promote lifestyle Web sites to teens. He took that experience to Internet marketing pioneer Wave Rock Communications where he honed his skills at improving Web site visibility and generating sales for his clients. Ben later moved on to YRG Communications (now Grady Britton), a full-service marketing agency, where he worked his way up to a post as supervisor of the Internet marketing group. In 2003, Ben moved on to form Amplify-Interactive. While President of Amplify Interactive, Ben has worked as the key strategist on all client projects. He is also a regular speaker for national conferences like Search Engine Strategies, and for local area marketing groups and business seminars. Ben is a founding member of Portland’s own Search Engine Marketing Association SEMpdx.

Keeping an Eye on Us from Dog Heaven

We recently lost Hank to cancer, but he is still a part of Amplify Interactive. In addition to his morale duties, Hank was also a prolific writer and had a monthly column in his neighborhood newspaper The Hollywood Star under the pen name “Hollywood Hank” where he talks about his adventures in the neighborhood with his best friend and neighbor Kathy.
