We recently did some photography for a makeover competition entered by our friend Rénelle Latour.


11781764_1660269767519902_6772872077927027974_n (1)Corner Brook has an amazing small business community. As a way of building awareness of that community and the upcoming Humber Expo small business trade show, we are currently interviewing and writing profiles for over 200 local Corner Brook businesses.

The trade show isn’t until October, but you can follow along as Modern Marketing posts those photos and profiles to the Humber Expo Facebook page.

In 2010, as Matt Murley was learning web development, he created this old website for CASARA Deer Lake (YDF) from scratch (don’t judge us on this one).

In 2016 the site was in need of updating. Modern Marketing was responsible for the setting up the new site, creative modifications, and updating content. The photos used were carried over from the original site, but they will be updated as CASARA YDF participates in future training activities.

Modern Marketing helped organize, promote, and sponsor a Startup Weekend in Corner Brook April 1-3, 2016. In the weeks leading up to it we launched a social media and content marketing campaign to increase awareness and attendance. Our written content, video, and social sharing got a lot of great feedback, and the event was a rousing success.

We were thrilled to be so heavily involved in this event, and can’t wait for the next one!


I was recently invited to co-host a Blab about social media, marketing, and the king of it all… Gary Vaynerchuk (although we got into many other areas). It was my first such experience, and I enjoyed meeting new people, sharing ideas, and having some of my own work/decisions validated by talking to others in the online marketing industry.

Unfortunately the video for that broadcast is no longer available 🙁


In preparation for Corner Brook hosting the 2016 Special Olympics Canada Winter Games, Modern Marketing worked with local videographer Tom Cochrane to feature the four local athletes who would be competing on that national level. The spirit of competition is alive and well here!

In June of 2015, a trade show of small and local businesses took place in downtown Corner Brook; Humber Expo. Modern Marketing covered the event live on social media, interviewed the businesses involved, and wrote a summary about each one. A snapshot of each one is below, but click here for the full album and profiles.

In 2015 we facilitated and produced a promotional video for the Corner Brook Vikings Special Olympics team, of which Matt Murley is the Communications Director. Let these athletes inspire you:


One of our first websites was for a local restaurant owned by a family of Bulgarian natives that specializes pizza, pasta, grill, and European cuisine.

Modern Marketing was responsible for the setting up the site, creative modifications, and writing content. We continue to update menu details and pricing when necessary.

Since opening in 2003, Sorrento has been recognized as one of the best places to eat in Canada nearly every year. We highly recommend eating there if you haven’t.
