Twisted Puppy: Manhattan Beach Web Design & Development (& Online Marketing Services)

Meet Twisted Puppy

We’re a full service internet agency, building websites and helping companies with online marketing.

We Love Web Design

When the internet ascended in the 90’s, we were there. We have developed hundreds of websites by hand or using the latest content management systems. Using powerful off-the-shelf systems saves times and leverages large communities, so that’s our current website development direction.

We Know Web Design

We’ve built dozens of sites over the past twenty (yes, 20) years, customizing solutions to suit many different industries and needs. We know design AND technology, which is a rare combination in the marketplace. We help small to midsize businesses get a handle on their websites. We’re a partner who is in it for the long term.

We’re Local to Manhattan Beach

We’re part of this community (you know: 16th Street volleyball, El Porto surfing, Hometown Fair 10K, Sandpipers, Neptunians…), and we do the work HERE. If you want a partner you can see, not just on Skype, we should meet in person to discuss your project’s requirements. We regularly help companies in Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach and Torrance to improve their website presence and online marketing.

Simply fill out the form on the right for a no-cost, no-obligation consultation. If your requirements and our skills are a match, everyone wins!

What Web Development Clients Say

What I like most about my experience with Twisted Puppy is the collaboration aspect. Having a true partner to riff with and build something together has been not only rewarding but fun! You can’t give birth to a beautiful baby alone.

Our industry is solicited non-stop by marketing firms who drop a pre-fab, run-of-the-mill and typical (so-called) “solution” in your lap to supposedly solve all your problems. There’s nothing suited specifically to your needs, and quite frankly, it’s insulting (and a waste of precious capital). To have the “real deal” is beyond refreshing.

We were well aware that our business had a gaping hole. We were not growing, and more importantly we weren’t evolving. It is an indescribable relief to be on the upward trajectory that we needed to be on.

I would recommend Twisted Puppy without hesitation. Recommending Twisted Puppy would be the equivalent of giving a really great gift to a friend or associate, and that’s a really great feeling (and then they’ll owe me a favor!).

More so than any agency we’ve worked with before, Twisted Puppy delivers a kind of “holistic medicine” when it comes to web design and development, and in particular with regard to marketing strategy and analytics. It’s part art and part science, and the end result is a more complete solution — design, technology, content, strategy, tools — than we’ve ever gotten before.

We are impressed with the customer service & attention to detail they provide. We highly recommend them for any company looking for a professional web development/social media/marketing company. Thank you again Scott & Twisted Puppy !

What Full Service Agency Clients Say

Having Twisted Puppy lead our social media, website and marketing pieces has brought our company into a much higher level of exposure.  Scott Herring’s knowledge is vast which means the newest tactics are always available for us.  And the compliments we receive, based on Twisted Puppy’s work, is exceptional.

What Web Design Clients Say

Working with Twisted Puppy seems to be more of a partnership with the same goals. I appreciate their willingness (which I believe is necessary) to dig in and understand our company and the message we need to get out. They demonstrated an understanding of both technical marketing and web development/SEO. I would recommend Twisted Puppy to anyone who was looking.

Steve Rochman, President, Revotech

What Full Service Agency Clients Say

Hands down, the best thing about working with Twisted Puppy is the sheer expertise of the team.

Scott Herring is able to explain complex topics in ways that anyone can understand, and he is more than generous with sharing his knowledge. The fact that he is a web designer, programmer, and master marketer all rolled into one means his clients receive top notch websites with many capabilities already built in. We truly appreciated this because it saves us money up front, as well as future headaches. One would be hard pressed to find someone as skillful, competent, and passionate about his work as Scott. There is no doubt in my mind that Twisted Puppy has put into place the framework for what we need to succeed as an e-commerce website.

The training that Twisted Puppy has provided for our team has been invaluable. We are truly grateful for the opportunity to have had Twisted Puppy create our website and provide us online marketing services.

We would wholeheartedly recommend Twisted Puppy’s online marketing services to anyone who wants to be able to effectively communicate or convert.

I love Twisted Puppy’s creativity and competence. To me, it’s so exciting to know that I can ask for an update or edit on my website and know that it will get done – and get done in a timely manner. The difference in quality from my last web designer to Twisted Puppy is night and day. I can’t tell you how pleased I am to get to work with Twisted Puppy. Plus, I found an enthusiastic ear who has much to offer in regard to suggestions and opinions.

Twisted Puppy is an all encompassing marketing bonanza! The company can handle anything from web design, to content, to blogging, to marketing pieces. It’s a one-stop shop for all of your online needs!

What Web Development Clients Say

Twisted Puppy brought a kind and gentle approach to guiding me through the entire process. Scott made things easy for me to understand with a lot of his one on one time to make sure I got what he was going to do. There was no pushy sales pitch, just great business practices (timelines, spread sheets, emails telling me where he was in the plan and exactly what he needed from me). I found exceptional quality of work, and the team helping were just as good as he is.

“Working with Twisted Puppy has been one of the
best decisions I’ve ever made for my business.”

Over the past couple of years, Scott has made changes to my website and marketing approach that have resulted in greater traffic and more customers. His expert knowledge of SEO, conversion methods, and content creation has put me in position to dominate my industry. I saw results almost immediately, but more impressive, and important to me, is that the improvement has been enduring, growing steadily to this day.

“Our website went from one of the worst
to one of the best in our field.”

I found Twisted Puppy wanted this as much as we did, which showed in the final product. It was the partnership I was searching for in a web developer. We found Twisted Puppy creative, informative, easy to work with, responsive and overall timely.

What Website Development Clients Say

“When you work with Scott Herring and Twisted Puppy,
you don’t have a contracting relationship,
you have a partnership focused on success.”

I chose Twisted Puppy because I needed to upgrade my website and wanted to establish a focused social marketing program. After discussing my goals and clarifying my time constraints, Twisted Puppy developed an implementation strategy. They presented sketch work, listened to my thoughts and offered flexibility yet stayed true to the strategy. Every development goal was hit, feedback and suggestions were prompt, and scope creep was kept to an absolute minimum through Scott’s management.

The end result…our new website is beautiful, focused and absolutely first rate.  Without question my expectations have been exceeded.  Our goals have been achieved, but more importantly, the feedback from visitors has been fantastic.  And when we combined the launch of our social marketing program, the results have been a steady increase in presence and sales growth!

But it hasn’t stopped there… Scott has helped me learn about monitoring, the benefits of consistently blogging, scheduling, and directing clients for the best results.

greater productivity in the day to day of running my business.”

I try to recommend Twisted Puppy to everyone. They have earned my respect by being timely and proactive, with a clear consideration for my budget. Specifically interested in bringing high-quality content to the largest audience possible, Twisted Puppy has constantly shown me ways to improve my SEO and audience reach, but more importantly, how to accomplish this in a most fiscally reasonable manner.
