What Our Clients Say

Graeme Watkins

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.”

Huge thanks to Ryan, Ben, and the entire SmartBug team. A more responsive, supportive, and friendly partner you will not find. We did our homework before choosing SmartBug and can say they're absolutely competitive in terms of pricing (more than competitive), but without comparison in terms of ease of working with. We rebuilt our website, choosing to go with their marketplace templates. We then retained them to semi-customize. We were just starting to drink the HubSpot Kool-Aid and learning inbound ... and the SmartBug team was there riding shotgun with us the whole way, coaching us on everything from designing CTAs to blogging best practices. Everyone there was extremely responsive to our requests, their work quality is high, and they always over-deliver. We will definitely retain them for future work, I have no doubt. Thanks again, SmartBug!”

As the owner of a small business startup, I was looking for a reasonably priced solution to help me build my website. I purchased the SmartBug Performance template pack, and I have to say that I was very impressed. I found there to be any excellent array of webpages from which I was able to build an entirely comprehensive and functional website. The few times I needed support, HubSpot was quite friendly and supportive. I am very grateful for their product and the quality of service I have received.”

Steve Manville

SmartBug Media has done an amazing job on our website. We are an insurance brokerage in Canada. Our industry is extremely competitive in the online world. Ryan's team has been able to really help us get on the map for insurance in our area. In the first month, we have tripled the amount of viewers and quotes that we have received from our website. They are in it for the long-term relationship. Ryan is very flexible with how we need his team’s help. Insurance is a very technical industry, and we are making it our mission to simplify insurance for the everyday consumer. They have really helped us achieve this goal. We did our homework prior to signing with SmartBug, and they won over their competitors because of their flexibility in work and their competitive pricing.”
