about nerd nest media

Nerd Nest Media is a web design and development company located in Portland, Oregon. We offer exceptional customer service, and focus our attention to businesses in need of bringing their name to the forefront of their industry. We think our attention to detail sets us apart from our competitors.

We provide many different services for our clients, and consider Nerd Nest Media a boutique web development company. This means we offer services by the hour, so you can use our services as much or as little as fits your needs. Some of our services include: Web Design & Development, Search Engine Optimization, Site Auditing, Security Maintenance, and Site Education.

We are also focused on saving our clients money! We use content management systems, such as WordPress, to reduce the cost of website design and development. Content management systems not only drive the initial development costs down, but also put the power of managing your brand into your own hands!

These systems also provide an easy to learn, friendly interface that allows for content to be added, updated or removed with as much skill as it takes to draft an email! We even provide hands-on training and educational tutorials for many platforms.

meet the owner

Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to get to know a little about my company!

Years prior to starting Nerd Nest Media, I kept hearing about businesses not getting much value out of their web companies. These companies and their web presence showed a clear picture of something they were “sold” instead of having something they understood. After doing some research, I found that most web companies were focused on selling a new website that would be outsourced, rather than listening to what the client’s needs were and helping them develop a more successful online strategy.

I also came across companies claiming to be “SEO experts”, who would never take the time to explain exactly what services they were charging monthly to provide. In starting my company, I wanted my main focus to be on taking the time to explain the value of having a complete brand to my clients, helping them develop their online presence to match.

Being extremely detail-oriented, I take the time to manage all of our projects closely to ensure consistency in service and quality. I have been able to use my love for design and project management to create a business that provides honest, valuable service to businesses trying to stand out in their industry.

Thanks again for stopping by!  I look forward to learning about you and your business! From web design to security, we do the nerdy work!

what our clients say

“I can’t say enough great things about working with Breanne and NerdNest. I hired her to sort out a wordpress mess that was costing me business, and she did it with speed, grace, and aplomb. I like that she is willing to get on the phone when I need to talk things through, and that she is respectful of both my time and budget.”

“Working with Nerd Nest Media has been a smooth and enjoyable experience. They are professional, easy to work with, and provide excellent communication. We love our new website and would highly recommend them!”

“Nerd Nest took on a huge project for our company – revamping a long-standing website with tons of content and also setting up a web shop for a large number of products. Their rates are very reasonable and the work is excellent quality. Our product lines are fairly complicated, and Breanne was able to come up with solutions for organizing and displaying the products in a user-friendly way. It’s refreshing to work with a web company who takes the time to explain your options. The communication was always excellent.”

“Nerd Nest Media has been wonderful to work with. Breanne has helped me build two of my business websites and I’m constantly amazed at both her knowledge and her responsiveness to my (many) questions and design whims. I am so lucky I found her early on in our business and she has helped us grow and pivot to the ever changing digital needs of being online!”

“Breanne is great to work with. She is patient and makes sure she totally understands what you need. Her estimates are correct and she delivers on time. She creates detailed walkthroughs so you can continue to maintain your site afterwards. We have been really happy with everything she’s done for us! She’s a gem.”
