Each case study reveals how the company wanted to improve and SmartSite's plan of action — whether that includes a Google Adwords campaign or adding a blog to the website.

We have been working with Smartsites for about two years now. They have been nothing short of incredible. They are setting the bar high for all digital agencies. Ashley was a true professional. Explaining all phases of the website development, responding to our emails quickly, answered every question we could ever have, and overall, was a joy to work with. I would recommend her and her team to anyone for website development. Thank you so much for all your hard work. We look forward to the continued business!

Once again Michael and his team especially Ashley M, project manager, exceeded my anticipated expectations!! My ‘Becker Pump” E-Commerce site is by far, in my opinion, “BEST IN CLASS” beyond a shadow of a doubt. And Alex and his team; who manage my Google Ads and CTR campaigns with precision control and rigor attention to details, thus the outstanding and consistent increase in daily traffic. My Hat’s off to all at SmartSites! I’d highly recommend SmartSites.

Smartsites has been great to work with. I have been specifically working with Michael and Matthew. Michael is handling my PPC marketing campaign. He is very thorough, really took time to understand my business needs, and continually tracks and provides me ideas to improve the campaigns. He's also VERY responsive - when I need something, he is quick to respond. I find that super important. Matthew has also been fantastic to work with. Matthew is project managing the design of our new website - start to finish. He has been phenomenal with offering suggestions and ways to improve the designs. he is extremely responsive and also took a lot of time to understand my business and needs. I highly recommend using Smartsites. They get it. They take time to understand your business. They are affordable and they care.

We just started working with Smartsites in October 2019 to re-do our website and help us with our Pay Per Click marketing with Google Adwords. They are a very professional organization and have made the process easy. Our website is still in the developmental phase so I cannot review this part in detail but I have been working very closely with Michael G reconfiguring my PPC with Google and the process has already yielded significant positive results. Michael is extremely knowledgeable We are very pleased with the results so far and I will do another review after our new site is up and running.

I contracted SmartSites to create a web presence for our two companies EZ Sleep Advisors and EZ Sleep 4 U. SmartSites built two websites and integrated Twitter feeds. The process was seamless and the websites were delivered fast. The price was affordable and also included web hosting. I have no complaints with my experience with SmartSites and would recommend them to a friend.

In today’s day and age, it is hard to sift through all of the companies out there that specialize in web development and internet marketing as everyone claims to be an expert. What I have found in working with SmartSites for a few years now is that it’s not just about coding a website or designing some graphics but about paying close attention to the little details that really make your project stand out. Whether I needed a simple logo or a full blown website, our project manager, Matt, and his team have put forth their greatest effort to make sure we are satisfied with the outcome.

I had been looking for some help with online marketing for my event company and got referred to SmartSites by a contact in my industry. I have to say, the Melen brothers went above and beyond!

I can not recommend these guys more!

I knew there was something that needed to be done with my online presence but I was challenged with what my primary focus should be. SmartSites was able to put all the pieces of the puzzle together. Michael spent time with me understanding who I wanted my target audience to be. This way, we were able to build a new website and created a strong online presence. Working with SmartSites was extremely beneficial for my practice and I would highly recommend them.
