Jake rebuilt one of my client’s websites and since we launched the new site, calls/leads have been coming in on a much more frequent basis! Before Jake rebuilt this website, virtually no leads were converting. Just goes to show you how important a good website is! Thank you Jake!

For many years we have used Jake and his company, Small Biz Makeover, to co-ordinate our website content and our Google adwords account. He has always provided excellent guidance and has always given us great direction for improving our content. Jake's knowledge of how we should be allocating our advertising dollars effectively in order to get the best results has been superlative.

My wife and I are owners of a small business in Hoboken. Recently, we realized that our website was old and outdated and needed a serious upgrade. After researching several different options, we decided on Small Biz and couldn’t be happier with the results. Jake, Matt and the entire team at Small Biz were extremely insightful and accommodating throughout the entire process. They turned our website into an easy to use, eye catching site, while greatly increasing the functionality of it, as well. Since we didn’t know much of anything about website design, we had so many questions and suggestions for Small Biz during the process. Jake and Matt happily answered all of our questions and quickly applied any suggestions we had for the site, while also providing their own professional advice. These guys are great! What seemed like it would be an overwhelming experience, Jake and Matt turned into an easy, pleasurable experience with great results. We are already reaping the benefits of the new site! I highly recommend Small Biz for any website design or upgrade. They are true professionals who take great pride in providing a high quality service.

Jake designed our original website. Recently we asked him to updated it, and he had great ideas about how to make it more efficient and easier to navigate. Over the past several years he has kept us updated with website and internet changes. Jake is very easy to work with, professional and timely. If you are a small business and looking to create a new website or update your old one, we recommend using Small Biz Makeover!

Over my 3 decades of "real life" experiences with people and companies, I've learned the hard way how to be skeptical! These days it's "trust but verify..." When Jake began selling his service to me at a construction trade show, my existing website was pretty tired-looking and I didn't have a good web designer, but I thought my chances of being pleased with Jake's website design service were slim to nil. But I'll admit I was wrong! Jake and his team are very knowledgeable, conscientious, professional, and responsive, and their efforts show well online! I'm happy with the re-designed website and I feel the site can be viewed without any trace of embarrassment! I would certainly recommend SBM to others, and will use them in the future when the need arises, which will probably be soon!

Jake has been very helpful to my business. I was referred to Small Biz Makeover from a web marketing company who also uses his services. Jake has done everything from designing my company logo to creating the web and mobile websites. If you are looking for someone reliable this is the place. I would highly recommend Small Biz Makeover to anyone looking to make a difference in their web presence.

Can't say enough good things about Jake from Small Biz Makeover. He redesigned my dog training website a few years ago and did a fantastic job. He has also helped me with any issue, large or small, that has popped up on my website. Most recently he got my mobile site up and running and I couldn't be happier. He is professional, talented and gets back to you quickly. I highly recommend Small Biz Makeover.

My experience with Small Biz Makeover was very professional. Jake was very attentive to my needs explaining everything about my website. Since I am an artist and I love color my website represents my artistic background.I am very pleased with how my website came out and I would recommend Small Biz Makeover to anyone who is interested in a website.

I needed a website as an online repository for all my stuff and didn't want it to look like it would if I tried to do it myself. I'm not the most technically proficient guy so I knew I needed help. Jake met with me and I was able to tell him what I was looking for and what I could spend. Not only was he able to come up with a great page but he anticipated what my needs might be in the future and gave me the ability to work on the page myself. I was beyond happy with his work and have recommended his work to friends and colleagues.However, the thing that REALLY impressed me with Jake was that after the point of sale, when his work was ostensibly done he didn't just disappear. As issues both technical and PEBCAK arose, I was able to talk to him about how to proceed. He was always available, had ready solutions and helped me tremendously. I look forward to my businesses growing, giving me the opportunity to work with Jake again.
