Alex and his team are absolutely top-notch web developers. I originally hired Beehive to create a basic landing page to legitimize my business on Yelp. Because I was already doing well on Yelp, and getting a satisfactory number of conversions, I didn’t think I really needed much else to grow my business. But that’s the problem with limited thinking! Thankfully Alex is not only an excellent website developer, he also has a very creative business mind. Together we brainstormed ways to convert more customers & generate more revenue. One of the things we did was create a pathway for customers to sign up for our service directly on the website without the traditional home inspection that so many other companies still do as protocol. It really is not necessary for the type of service we offer and Alex was able to help me think outside of the box on that one. People are already signing up using the new feature Alex created and my head is spinning at how fast we are growing. There are so many other things that Alex has done for my business — creating a small e-commerce store to sell my best products, animation conveying what my company does — the list goes on. You will not be disappointed hiring Beehive. They really are the best.
