About MacMillan Design
A Curious Little Team with Super Geeky Super Powers
“How can you be offering that much service for that little money?” our British competitor said. “You can’t undercut other companies like that for long and stay afloat, mate. You’re mad.”
And he was right. Not insane in the sense that he meant, but we are mad. Mad at watching small businesses struggle and fail in a world favoring big national companies. Mad at good companies run by good people not getting the recognition (and sales) they deserve. And we’re mad at how our own industry treats people.
A common promise among SEO companies is that they’ll increase your website traffic. If you’re a small business owner, you know that you don’t need more traffic. Traffic doesn’t pay your employees or impress the bank. You need more sales.
At the heart of MacMillan Design is a love for seeing small businesses succeed – that means web design and SEO strategies that actually deliver on the sales part. Nothing brings us more joy than seeing our small enterprise clients absolutely dominate much larger national competitors. And we will work our literal and figurative fingers to the bone to make yours a smashing success as well.
