We were struggling with the company who managed our website constantly before we met Eric with Digital Neighbor! Since we hired Digital Neighbor to redesign our site, perform SEO services and manage our PPC campaign, we have been receiving high rankings and our site has considerably more traffic ... all because of Digital Neighbor! Highly recommend!
