A little more about our SEO culture

Need to get a bunch of creative types to rappel off a 24-story building? Then you need to call Calypso Communications, on Bow Street. In just a few short weeks, Calypso pulled together a social media campaign to wrangle Portsmouth area locals John Herman (author, candidate for space travel, and NH Media Makers founder), Christine Major (NH Tweet-Up founder), Patti Fousek (SEO & social media maven) and others to harness up and rappel off a building for the Boy Scouts of America.

Portsmouth’s known as a center of innovation and new ideas. That’s one of the reasons it was ranked as the top FourSquare Day city in the world in 2010. To date, the Portsmouth FourSquare clan has raised thousands of dollars for local charities.

If all of these impressive creative people did not convince you to bring #Mozcation to Portsmouth, well then, let me introduce you to social media maven Leslie Poston.
