About Small Biz Makeover of Hoboken, New Jersey

Are you doing reconnaissance on us? 😉 That’s ok, in fact it’s encouraged! You really should be thoroughly vetting any website design company you’re considering for your project. It’s important to make sure you hire a firm that has a proven track record, extensive portfolio and tons of positive reviews.

Our Lead Designer
Captain Jake, getting learn-ed about the latest tech at SXSW.

A lot of people claim to be experts and insist they’ll build you a highly professional site on the cheap, but in actuality they just do it as a side gig for some extra cash and, well, you get what you pay for. But not with with us. We’ve been in business since way way back in the year 2008. We have hundreds of sites under our belt. And the chops to prove it. From SEO to internet advertising, we’ve got you you covered.

Why We’re Right For You

Unlike much larger interactive agencies, with our lil’ boutique-style firm, you’re going to get a ton of personalized service. If you’re not exactly ‘technologically savvy’, rest assured, we’ll hold your hand through the whole process. Your success is our success, so expect that we intend to build you a site that generates a positive return-on-investment for you – sooner rather than later.

We’re a team of creative young professionals with backgrounds in design, finance, marketing, and programming. Unlike other website development shops who often have decent programming skills but that’s about it, we bring a lot more dimensions to the table: an entrepreneurial spirit, excellent communication, and kick-ass customer service. That’s no b.s. Read our client testimonials page and see for yourself.

Who Works There

Jake is the ringleader. He spends his days fine tuning the operation, chatting with clients, waiting on hold with Network Solutions or Godaddy, managing the projects and fighting the never ending battle that is his email inbox. By night he’s often found shooting pool at the local watering hole, (attempting to) play guitar, or watching reruns of Shark Tank.

Beneath him, there’s a series of project managers, programmers, graphic designers, salespeople and other assorted characters. Here’s the cool thing – most of our team actually works from home! Progressive companies from Silicon Valley to Valley Forge are embracing the work-from-home model. The fact that we don’t have to pay for office space helps keep expenses down which helps keep your prices down too. Woot!

Hudson County Chamber Luncheon
Here’s Jake again – this time giving a presentation about Online Marketing to members of the Hudson County Chamber of Commerce

How It All Began

Jake was working for a wall street firm as a project manager in charge of an internal webpage. On the job, he learned a lot of the skills that are necessary for web development (UX design, planning, testing, etc…). In May of 2008, he decided the time was right to scratch that entrepreneurial itch and give this website endeavor a shot. Turns out the timing was terrible! A few months later the economy completely crashed and small businesses tightened their pocketbooks. Still, with some good ol’ perseverance and stick-to-itiveness, Jake slowly built up a portfolio and made a name for the company and the rest is history.

What About Hoboken

Hoboken, New Jersey is where Jake sets up shop and meets with clients. That explains his newfound love of Sinatra and Mozzarella. Plus, there’s many great business associations in the area like the Gold Coast Chamber of Commerce or the Hudson County Chamber of Commerce (both of which we belong) that make for some great B2B networking.
