When we first engaged SmartBug more than a year ago we had just let go of our head of marketing and had no idea where to take our marketing strategy. SmartBug were able to lay out a simple content marketing strategy and with the right mix of guidance and motivation help us execute on it. Since we started we have doubled the resources we have from SmartBug and completed a complete website rebuild. To date we are more than 200% up year on year for our key metrics ans super excited to continue our work with SmartBug.”

SmartBug was great from the moment we contacted them to the moment our new site went live. They have a very methodical process in place to ensure that they really understand your business, objectives and needs and are able to translate that to website design. They really took a lot of time to learn about our business and demonstrated genuine interest in it. The entire team was a pleasure to work with, very responsive and proactive and really earned to be labeled as "partners" vs "vendor". ”

Do you know what a perfect 10 agency looks like? You do now. Seriously, I cannot stress enough how on top of their game SmartBug is. They are truly experts in their field, and they make it their mission to become knowledgeable experts in the fields and brands of their clients. ”

We've had nothing but great things to say about SmartBug. Everyone has been so organized, professional and helpful. They make our team better and we use them as an extension of our staff.”

From my very first interaction with SmartBug, they sought to understand our goals and get to the heart of what matters most to us. Throughout our time working together, they’ve continued this practice - before making recommendations, they listen first. Just as important, SmartBug doesn’t tell us what we want to hear. They talk straight and tell us what we need to hear, even if it means turning away potential business from us. Having a partner who we can trust to put our interests first and give us honest advice is invaluable. Unlike a vendor who’s trying to sell us something, SmartBug operates as part of our team. Finally, SmartBug does what they say they are going to and they deliver results. They keep projects moving according to schedule, proactively communicate with us and consistently exceed our expectations.”
