Whether you are updating your existing website, or starting from scratch with a new brand and in need of a complete digital marketing strategy, choosing an agency to help is a big decision.
With locations in both Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio, Makeshark is able to meet you in person to ensure your web design and marketing project meets your goals and you are informed through every stage of the process—including ongoing support once your website is launched.
Here’s what you can expect when working with Makeshark:
1. Professional Experience
When you work with Makeshark, you get the benefit of having an entire team with years of experience dedicated to helping make your website and marketing the very best it can be. Our process starts with a kickoff meeting where we gather inspirations, review competitors, and mockup your website or project. This "co-creation" approach gets you the results you want faster, and reduces revisions that don't meet your expectations.
2. Responsive Support
It's annoying when you work with a web developer or marketing agency and it takes days (or weeks) to get a simple response or update. Having responsive support is baked into our business model. That's why we charge a small monthly subscription fee, instead of a large upfront sum and send you on your way—we want to partner with and help small businesses! Makeshark can usually take care of any email or phone request within 1–2 business days (see our client reviews).
3. Results Oriented
Pretty websites aren't enough if they aren't helping you get new leads or streamlining your business operations. All Makeshark websites are built with modern SEO (search engine optimization) best practices to help your business rank on Google and other search engines. We update your website as algorithms change, and even offer free digital marketing workshops to help keep you informed on best practices.
4. Affordable Pricing
Makeshark was founded with goal of helping small businesses succeed with professional marketing services. Most local marketing agencies charge large upfront fees ($5,000 and up) and then send you on your way to figure out how to manage and pay for things like web hosting, security, and freelancers for ongoing support. In contrast, Makeshark's small monthly subscription (see plans) are all inclusive, and generally only slightly more than you would pay to do-it-yourself.
5. Strategic Partner
Makeshark continues to work with hundreds of small businesses in Ohio like yours, and are well aware of your industry's best practices, whether you are an attorney, dentist, or remodeler. We rely on the same Google Algorithms and marketing trends as our clients, so as we learn of something that will help our business, we pass that along to our clients as well. Rising tides raise all ships!
These are just a few of the many benefits you will experience working with the Makeshark team. We are invested in all of our clients' success and business growth. Let us know how we can help you! Reach out today to get a meeting scheduled a phone call or meeting with our team.
