We design every site ourselves - no interns here.

The dirty little secret with marketing agencies is that while you typically speak with the owner, see him or her speak at a conference or read their blog posts, the work on client sites is often done by an intern, outside contractor or entry-level employee. We are not an agency and by working with us, you get...well, us. We only take on a certain number of projects each quarter and if we can't do the work, we won't take on the project. Contact us to get information about our waitlist.

Our websites are really fast - even Google thinks so.

Since website speed is currently a ranking factor for Google, it's very important to have a website that loads quickly on all devices. Surprisingly, most new websites today score 30/100 or worse on Google's own Pagespeed Insights tool. We only produce websites that score 80/100 or better. Don't believe us? Test this one or test your own.

Our sites make your business look better.

Your website should reflect the professionalism of your company. Too often, business owners settle for a sloppy, outdated websites that damage their brand. We produce clean websites with an unparalleled attention to detail. Our designs include modern features like a powerful search function and a mobile contact bar for smartphone users. We also showcase your 3rd party reviews across all of your pages, providing social proof to your web visitors. These tools allow your visitors to seamlessly navigate the site and contact your business with ease.

Our websites are easier
for you to manage.

Wouldn't it be great if you could edit your own site without dealing with a complicated interface or worrying you'll alter the design? Our sites come standard with a convenient client portal, where you can easily update the text and images on any page of your site in a user-friendly dashboard. You can even publish new blog posts with just a few clicks!

We know SEO and every website is optimized.

Google is a powerful way to attract new customers, clients or patients. Unfortunately, most small business websites are missing key components of search engine optimization. As search engine optimization experts, our websites are built following SEO best practices & local business schema. We take great care to optimize your website so that Google understands where your business is located and the services you offer. Go ahead. Test the schema markup on this page using Google's own tool. After that, now you can test your own website. For most websites, the schema should be designated "local business" and have no errors.

We only recommend what you need - no cookie cutters here.

Too often, business owners are sold packages that are designed as a one-size-fits-all solution. At Erickson Built, we understand that each business is completely unique, and deserves a tailored marketing plan. We'll look at your unique circumstances (service offerings, location, competition, etc) to determine what you really need to improve your online presence.
