Scott Fish is the founder of 32° digital, a northwest based digital marketing agency that provides SEO Services in Portland, Oregon, and SEO Services in Vancouver, Washington. Scott Fish’s marketing passion started when he was in high school – learning how to create websites and build online businesses as a hobby. Going into college, Fish decided to start an online business selling luxury items online. Stuck with inventory, he had to figure out how to sell those items quickly online – spurring his interest in SEO and PPC. Successfully managing to make a profit, Fish started to figure out how Google’s algorithm works and that spurred his interest in Search Engine Optimization. While attending Oregon State University, Fish was part of the Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI) Fraternity and played on the Oregon State University Lacrosse team. During college Fish worked at the Nike employee store in Beaverton, OR and took advantage of that time to learn about the different departments at Nike – spending lunch with many directors, designers, and a few athletes.
In the final years of college, Fish was offered a job at Dotster, one of the early domain name registrars in the industry. In a position as a domain name sales and acquisition manager, Fish learned about the domain name industry, details about how ICANN works, and was able to discover different marketing and traffic generation strategies in the domain industry. Once the Dotster opportunity started to close up, Fish was offered a position at a Portland SEO company that was in the start-up phase called EngineWorks. Spending over 8 years at EngineWorks, Fish was involved in many aspects of the business including sales and business development, account management, client services, SEO Strategy, Paid Search Management, Social Media, Email Marketing, and Website Development. At his high point, Fish managed a team of SEO strategists that focused on content creation, technical SEO, site-wide SEO, and off page SEO.
Fish’s passion in travel marketing began during his time at Engineworks (which was later acquired by Ethology/Tallwave) – working with brands such as VailResorts, Rock Resorts, The Greenbrier, The Stanley Hotel, and other luxury destination resorts.
Fish’s marketing passion lead him to create 32° digital and focus on digital marketing for the tourism and hospitality industry. The marketing strategies that Fish brings to clients that he works with are strategies that bring results.
In addition to running 32° digital, Fish is involved with several different non-profits around the region. Fish is on the board of directions for SEMpdx, a Portland based digital marketing organization that shares SEO, PPC, Social Media, and Email marketing strategies with the community. The Oregon Historical Society Cabinet is also a position that Fish holds, showing his passion for history in the northwest. Fish is also involved with BreastFriends.org, a Tigard, OR based breast cancer non-profit that serves friends and families of those dealing with breast cancer. During high school Fish learned how to play racquetball and now serves on the board of directors of USA Racquetball and coaches the Reynolds Raiders high school racquetball team.
