What Our Clients Say

Tim Randall

We are using SmartBug for paid advertising, SEO, Hubspot help, and content creation. To say we are happy would be an understatement. They are helping us rapidly scale out our business. Like many businesses, we try things and figure out what works best. That means changing things on the fly at times. We can't believe how fast Smartbug can deliver on things like content, webpage creation, our Hubspot implementation, etc...”

Kevin Connelly

One of the biggest challenges any sales team encounters is identifying the correct persona to target. Buyers today are hammered by content that is not relevant to the pains they are trying to address. SmartBug researched and architected the personas, relevant pain, messaging, and general approach to Conversica's targeting plan. SmartBug is a dependable team of marketing ninja's who deliver at the highest level. I would highly recommend engaging with their team. You will walk away impressed and questioning what have you been doing this entire time without them.”

Michael Timmons

This is an organization that has the perfect balance of marketing knowledge, strategy, creativity, and professionalism. We hired SmartBug to help us design a better website and integrate with HubSpot. The entire team was focused on helping us build a modern site that helps guide potential customers through clear messaging of our products and services. They listened. They really took the time to understand what we needed and how we wanted to grow our business. They offered a great strategy for the communication and flow of our pages and were able articulate their suggestions so we could visualize what our customers would experience. The team was on target with communication and meeting deadlines. The end result was fantastic. Our website now gets a score of 97 on website grader. Visitors are viewing more pages and staying longer. Leads are better. Team members Jen, Kyle, Hasan, Ben, Amanda and the rest of the crew were great to work with. We'd work with them again in a heartbeat.”

Scott Salkin

SmartBug has been an extended part of our marketing/sales team pretty much since day one, coming on board to help us with everything from our website to our ongoing lead generation and nurturing campaigns. Their ability to dive below the surface and really understand our business and the SaaS industry has been critical in helping us make sure that our marketing doesn't just look great, it actually speaks to our audience and delivers the results and KPIs we need to grow. And the team's knowledge and understanding of HubSpot—for both marketing and CRM—saves us immeasurable time and money.”
