About

Led by Jen Arbo, Hyack Interactive is a boutique marketing and communications company focused on genuine online communications. We specialize in engagement, content planning and implementation, coaching, training, and facilitation, and adaptive and flexible project management.

We believe clients can and should talk to their audience online in the same genuine and personable way they communicate in-person and that community building and engagement can occur both on- and offline.

Armed with her skills, Jen also brings together a team of creative, detail-oriented specialists to help as needed, such as experienced strategists, graphic designers, WordPress developers, content managers, writers, researchers, and people with experience and skill in fundraising, event planning, and community engagement. We pride ourselves on our creative approach to finding efficient, budget-conscious solutions that fit.

Hyack Interactive was founded in 2010 and is proudly based in New Westminster, BC.

We are nimble. We take on clients we believe in.

Briana and Jen’s knowledge, enthusiasm, patience and good humour made them an invaluable partner as we worked our way through the project. The end result was a workable plan delivered on time and on budget that has guided our social media efforts ever since. We continue to value their input and advice and would recommend them in a second.”
