“The Lakeshore Branding team is young go-getters, which really impressed me from the start. I have found them to be extremely knowledgeable about the marketplace, and on top of all of the latest technology (search and design — both are constantly evolving) and online marketing channels. If they do not know something, they are proactive about getting answers. My needs have been pretty custom, and I really appreciate the creativity they have employed so far. Ryan redesigned my entire site and I am very pleased. Ryan is not only extremely talented designer, he is a great solution-seeker and has the patience of a saint :-). My site was significantly more complicated to design than we anticipated, and I can honestly say there was not a single obstacle that he could not surmount. I cannot say enough great things about his work. As far as search marketing (handled more by Chris and Mike) goes, we just relaunched the site about 2 months ago and have just begun to see some nice results. We went through my analytics this afternoon, and since they redesigned my site to make it more “google-friendly”, my google rating has gone from a 5 to a 3, and I am seeing my organic search traffic increase. Finally, they really show appreciation for my business. They are good about making me feel like a very important client. Admittedly, I have been a little tough to work with at times and they have handled me very well :-). Being a relatively new company, they are still working on getting some of their systems in place, but overall they are good to work with and have been very responsive and accommodating. I highly recommend Lakeshore Branding as I have been a web design and internet marketing client for over a year and overall it has been a great experience.”

– Jill, So Cute and Cozy
