Have you ever hired a programmer to help you build a simple fix, only to find the project fall apart, or worse, the deliverables are completely useless? Maybe you've invested hours looking for a programmer or marketer to help you grow your business, but you’ve never found a way to actually make the outsourcing worth your time.
If you've been in business long enough, you know that being oversold, under-delivered, and sometimes even robbed blind can be a reality when hiring an outsourced team online.
Well, I've got some news for you. We’re Tech Guys Who Get Marketing, and we've been working with Fortune 500 companies, quiet millionaire business owners, and exciting nonprofits since 2006. Our clients regularly hire our highly talented team of developers, marketers, and designers to help them meet their goals and become more profitable. We believe in serving our clients for life and giving them everything they need to be successful. Our Project Managers will work closely with you to keep you abreast on movement in your project while our team completes the work. You are only charged for the exact amount of time it takes us to work on your project. This means if we come in under estimate, you're not charged the excess amount.
Our disciplines are wide, but our goal is the same:
We remove the hurdles that technology and marketing create, so you can be more effective in selling your product, service, or message.
Business owners need visibility to their key performance indicators, and the right technology can make that a breeze. The wrong technology will cause your team to scramble every quarter to assemble the data and present it in a useful way. The same can be said with marketing efforts; a marketing campaign must be audited on KPIs like the Cost per Acquisition, Lifetime Value of a Customer per Lead Source, Average Stick Rate and more.

The reason we are in business is to ensure that your marketing fuels your business and your business is built on sound technology.
Every project we do is unique. While our minimum project size is about 50 hours, we find that we work best when we can meet with your team, identify the 20% of work that will produce the 80% of results, and then get to work. Typically, smaller projects (50-100 hours) are researched in depth and a full list of tasks to be performed is created, which is delivered for our clients review. Upon their approval, we then perform the work, keep them updated with any roadblocks, and drive towards a useful conclusion. Projects larger than 100 hours are handled in using agile development methodologies. We use state-of-the-art technology to track the progress of User Stories, meet regularly with our clients to discuss the work involved in a Sprint and all deliverables.
As some of our long-term clients have said -- We're not the cheapest team. That's absolutely true. We charge $195 per hour for our marketing, development, and design work. We're not as cheap as advertisers on Craigslist. But our long-term clients continue using us over the cheaper alternatives because they know they can leverage us for highly complex tasks and projects. We will provide the most value for your company by assessing your current technology and marketing landscape and building a holistic strategy that addresses your needs. Then we set out to exceed your expectations.
We've helped industry experts pull together information products, build their marketing funnels and write their copy, then help them successfully bring in 7-figure sales over the course of a short 5-10 day product launch. Our developers have untangled some of the most complex CRM integrations, cleaning the data and making the user experience far superior than when we received it. We've hardened the security around sites that have been constantly in the aim of unethical hackers, keeping them online during their most important product announcements.
Simply put, no job is too complex for us. Our team salivates at the opportunity to dive into custom coded projects, find bugs, and resolve them. Our marketers find their joy in building and proving go-to-market strategies for businesses and entrepreneurs with life-changing products to sell. Our designers take their gifts of form and color to make a user experience so good, we see measurable increases in sales and conversions.
We take the guess-work out of your marketing and technology needs...
Below is a non-exhaustive list of the technology we've worked with before. In fact, we destroyed our transcription robot while trying to compile an exhaustive list — he just gave up and took early retirement. Every week clients bring us new technology needs and they have the confidence that we’re the right team for it.
