What is Hibu and how does it work?

Hibu is a digital marketing services provider that combines a comprehensive range of products and strategies into one interconnected marketing solution to help generate increased calls, clicks and leads. Some of the services Hibu offers include:

Online presence solutions
Hibu’s online presence solutions promise to give you everything you need for a perfect first impression. The company takes care of your complete online presence, including your website, and online listings, Google "My Business" page and Facebook page – all the most important places a customer could find you.
Hibu Smart Sites
Hibu Smart Sites are the heart of Hibu’s integrated digital marketing solutions. Its Smart Sites have advanced technology that over 80% of websites don’t have, helping them perform better than other websites — simply put, they communicate more information to Google to increase your search ranking and visibility.
Search, social and display advertising
With an advertising campaign from Hibu, you target your customers with a diversified ad campaign using social, display and search ads to reach customers wherever they are online. By advertising with an integrated digital marketing solution, you drive awareness, engagement and conversion across your complete online presence.

Hibu is a popular digital marketing option for both professional services and blue collar-services. The company creates custom Smart Sites that are the central hub of an interconnected, results-oriented digital marketing campaign.

Hibu is a full-service provider, as opposed to a DIY option. You work with a designated digital marketing specialist to provide background about your business and determine your primary business goals. That information is then used to create a digital marketing solution to achieve your goal, whether its increased visibility, improved customer engagement, and/or generating more qualified leads.

The overall development process includes a no-obligation consultation, a review stage for your website and/or ad design and final sign-off. Pricing is monthly, determined by the products and services you select for your specific solution. You can request changes to your website and ads at any time. If you’d prefer to do the work on your own, the client dashboard provides 24/7 results tracking as well as DIY options for simple changes.

Hibu pricing

Hibu doesn’t list pricing information on its website because the company does not offer cookie-cutter packages. Since every digital marketing solution is tailored to your specific business, the price is determined by your specific campaign. To get an idea about what a digital solution would look like for your business, schedule a brief, no-obligation phone call to discuss your budget and business goals.

Hibu generally provides services based on a monthly payment schedule. Depending on the solution you choose, there may be an upfront cost that covers initial development and building your website. Generally, your website is part of a multichannel solution and not a stand-alone offer. The cost varies based on factors such as:

  • The complexity of your solution
  • If your solution includes reputation management
  • If your solution includes an interconnected ad campaign (search ads, social ads and/or display ads)

We were cold called by a Hibu saleswoman awhile ago, named Jamie **. Having received countless calls like these, at first I was skeptical. But what made me stop and talk to Jamie was she was local, not from overseas somewhere, and she was sincere. I met with her and Wow! I’m glad I did. Hibu is awesome. We’re really happy with what they’ve done for us. We also love having a local salesperson who we can reach out to and who listens and is patient with us. Very happy with Hibu!

Hibu response

Thank you so much for your feedback regarding Jamie! We’ll send this on to them, we’re sure they’ll be glad to know. Have a great day!

    Rachel is a true marketing expert. It’s so hard to find someone who hits all the marks—thorough, honest, attentive to detail, knowledgeable, professional, friendly—Rachel truly possesses all of these things and more. She takes pride in her work and represents Hibu as if it were her company. She takes the time to learn about my industry so that she can formulate a personalized marketing strategy relative to the needs of my business. This translates to a successful campaign where I can see positive results. If you are a small business owner, I suggest meeting with Rachel. She will help identify the needs of your business so that you, too, will have great results. See for yourself!

    Hibu response

    Thank you so much! So glad to hear that you're happy with our service! We look forward to continuing to meet your business’ needs. Please have a great day!

    The customer service was spectacular that we received from Custom Security Integrated for our alarm system. They were responsive, more than kind, considerate of our time and very friendly. Justin M. came and taught us (not very techie people) how to work everything. He took his time and we did not aggravate him at all. LOL. Shelly is in the office and she recognizes my voice when I call. You don't get that every day anymore! And, Scott (owner) came out and gave us our estimate personally. All in all, it was a superb experience and I recommend them highly!!!

    In 2021 I acquired the long standing Stefani Plumbing from the original owner. In discussions about the marketing he had in place, the original owner said he has been working with Pete at Hibu for quite a few years and gave me his number. I had already started talking with other companies and entertained a few different ideas. I ended up going with another company to create a new website and internet marketing campaign. They were awful. My website looked good but I couldn’t be found online and wasn’t getting any leads. Pete kept calling to check in and after I realized I was getting more attention from “persistent Pete” than from my new marketing company, I decided to hear what he had to say.

    Pete showed me how my current marketing budget was really only getting me a website and not attracting any new customers. He showed me other companies that he works with and more importantly what he was doing with Stefani before I came in and how he could make a much better use of the same marketing budget. He redid my website using what was working with the old owner as well as my own ideas and placed ads on Google and Facebook to attract new clients. 1 year later, I look great online and I am getting a lot of great leads from my marketing campaign. I feel the face to face interaction with Pete and Hibu is what really has made the biggest difference because nothing is lost in translation. We are on the same page and have made tweaks along the way to keep making our marketing better and better. I highly recommend working with Pete and Hibu.

    This entire experience with Hibu has been wonderful. The set up process was quick and made very simple. We were walked through everything, told exactly what we needed to do, and we were up and running in no time. Our consultant John has been phenomenal to work with. The initial meeting was great, he really took time to get to know us as a company and gave input about what would work best for us. He's answered all my questions, checked in to see how things are going, and always reassures me I can reach out with any questions or concerns. I definitely think adding Hibu into our company for online marketing was one of the best things we could have done. We've generated new customers and service areas as well as connected with current customers to get honest reviews. Highly recommend Hibu to any service/trades company looking to gain customers and jobs.

    This company is a scam, promising to provide a service for a monthly fee. I pay $300 a month for 4 different services, none of which they do. For example, they are to increase my business reviews. While they did receive a number of 5 star reviews my first month with them, none of these reviews are public, I’m the only one who will ever see them. And they have done nothing since, 4 months later. They also took over my Google Business page and removed me from any administrative capacity. This page had a wrong phone number and website address, which initially I could not correct because they removed me. It took me hours on the phone with Google support to figure this out. I sent a message requesting that they correct the phone number and webpage, which Hibu declined. Google support helped me gain access to be an admin, but Hibu is still claiming ownership.

    Another service they provide is ensuring correct online business information. The Hibu dashboard indicated that my online business info was mostly 100% correct. But given the example of wrong phone and web info for at least two weeks and probably longer, their accuracy reassurances were false! I can go on and on about the lack of service, but this gives one a very good understanding of there crappy nonexistent service! Do not use unless you want to throw away you our money on this scam company!

    Matt was very helpful (and patient) as he walked us up the learning curve. We needed training in virtually all aspects of the dashboard; emails, corrections and additions, photo management, and more. I think we're there thanks to Matt. Thanks.

    Hibu response

    Thank you so much for the awesome review! It really does mean a lot. Don't hesitate to let us know if you need anything from us in the future.

    Tallen with Hibu has been an incredible sales representative and has went above and beyond with helping our company get straightened out and boosted on google. He also is very responsive when it comes to making changes to our website or Facebook.

    I can't say enough about Steve **. I have known him for a few years now. I joined Hibu last May. And my profit is higher. He calls me several times a month to check to see if everything is going ok. And he is always there to answer questions and show me how to use tools on my website. He has a good teacher for things that I don't know. Steve gets me work from his other Hibu customers. I consider Steve a great friend! And I highly recommend him!
