I called in to look up past invoices & to get us set up with paperless billing. Kurt helped me with both & made my day go so much better. I had just had an awful experience with another customer service for another company. It was a breath of fresh air to speak with Kurt!

As a new business owner you are faced with many decisions that can have a positive or negative impact on your business. We hesitated for a long time to hire a company to build our website. When we found HIBU through-Patricia, we knew they were the ones. Patricia guided us through the whole process from day one and she continues to be there for anything that comes up. Her knowledge, promptness, and kind have taken a load of stress off our shoulders when it comes to keeping our website updated and our marketing effective. Give HIBU a try, you won't regret it!

Couldn't believe how easy it was... 2 weeks ago I needed a new site. They interviewed me for an hour and sent me something so professional that I barely had to make any changes. The rep Greg was also there to help with the interview and also came back again when I got my proof to make things even easier.. Very helpful and customer service oriented. Low setup fee for something this state of the art.

We've been happy with Hibu over 6 years. Patricia, our Rep, keeps us informed and reviews our programs with us to help us make informed decisions on any new goals we have. I highly recommend Hibu if you want a Local, knowledgeable Marketing Partner!

All I can say is, the dashboard is nice, but the numbers are useless. Over 100 clicks to my site in from digital ads and clicks from my search campaign, 16 calls which more than half are completely bogus. People calling from other areas outside of my service range. Calling asking for companies. I’ve spent more money than I’ve made with this marketing. I sent emails in regards to how I feel about the marketing performance, sales rep offers more broken promises. So I called to see if I could just pay in advance and be done with the six month contract. They said someone will call you. Never did! No one has called me since I’ve made that phone call.

Started with HIBU about a month ago. Was very skeptical at first, since I just started my business in the summer of 2020. Having very little knowledge of advertising, I did what I could on my own. It had ok results. So I thought, let’s go with the experts, but I was wrong! $950 a month for marketing, and I’m a fairly new business, and I haven’t made a fraction of that back!

Thanks Melisha for coming to my rescue when my current digital company decided to close their doors. You came highly recommended. The website looked amazing and you made the transition easy. I look forward to growing my swimming pool installation and landscaping business with your help!

Absolutely worthless. No increase in calls, or sales... Was told I could cancel after six months...now it is 12 months... Don't waste your time or money... You get no service, just an automated original setup that is not explained nor tweaked.

I recently rebranded my company at the beginning of 2021 and was skeptical about getting traction in my new niche right away. Usually from my experience it takes 3-8 months to become established in any given market. Working with Tom and HIBU, however changed that. Since the rebrand in January of this year, it is now early February and I am booked out to early April. Not only that, but I am netting a 150% increase in profits due to the high quality leads I am getting! The service is phenomenal and I couldn’t recommend these guys enough.

I started a new business this year and was looking for a marketing company to help get the word out. A friend told me about Hibu so I gave them a call. I was blown away by how professional, knowledgeable and by how hard they worked for me.

I have been using HIBU for a number of years, and have never felt pressured into upgrading or purchasing. I am currently starting a new social media campaign, and Nicole ** has been FANTASTIC to work with. She is very responsive, and she is willing to take my ideas and make them better. I Highly recommend HIBU and NICOLE!

We’ve used multiple services in the past for our web advertising needs. None of them can match the outcome we get with Hibu. And it's not close! The results we get have been awesome! Joy is our representative and has been for over a decade. She knocks it out of the park for us every year! It's good to have someone you can trust!

Covid-19 rules and guidelines set forth by the State and County governments made communicating our plans for our weekly service quite a challenge. Without the use of the Hibu listings dashboard, things would have been more difficult. It is possible to change our hours on hundreds of internet search engines from one dashboard. That made things a lot easier. Hibu's listing management tool is a great investment.

Cody was the repair person. On time as promised. Obviously knew what he was doing and had the oven igniter removed and replaced in no time at all. Best repair price of 3 places contacted. He also respected Covid 19 protocol and wore a mask. I would highly recommend Atlas Appliance Service.

Original review: Dec. 24, 2020

It all sounds great, but words are as they say, cheap. Let's start at beginning. They drop names like Google and Microsoft. They toss out "Business Partners", "Certified" "Only" and wow you with stats and impressive numbers. So you sign up. They interview you (mine was 3 1/2 hours) with a "specialist" to get to know your needs and your business model. And then all the hype has to be met with the actual work.

That's where it all went down hill. I waited three weeks, four weeks, five weeks and nothing. I called around week four and left a message with the "Account Coordinator" or whatever they called them but nothing. Around week six I called my salesperson. He said he'd check and then told me that she had been sick and out for several weeks. Hey, it happens I thought so no big deal. He promised me that I would have some things to review in a week. Around week nine I called him again. He told me that they had (and these are his words) an 8,000% increase in business over the same time period as last year and they were so, so far behind in the production department. I congratulated him on the success of the sales department and for some odd reason felt lucky to be apart of the wave!

Finally, I got a file of what the site would look like and rough, very rough draft of some of the verbiage. Unfortunately, they missed the entire concept of my business. I train athletes online from all over... they had me offering specials on in house classes and my service area was the home town I lived in. They actually wanted my hours of operation to verify with Google!

Ok, another mistake but it was not fatal so let's move on. After another brief discussion with my Sales rep, I was assigned a new "Account Coordinator". Onward and upward, right... no! The next draft was not just sophomoric, it lacked luster, interest and a reason to read on. I ended up re-writing the entire series of pages, callouts, dropdown, etc. I did that on my free time and with my schedule that took about 2.5 weeks. Mind you, we are now entering close to 14 weeks AFTER, I was told we'd have a live site in four to six weeks.

After sending in my copy, it took them almost two weeks to start to send me proofs to review. As anticipated, changes, revisions and more changes. Another couple weeks. And, another "Account Coordinator". But here is the REAL RUB #1. After a couple of back and fourths with my new Coordinator, I told her if this doesn't get going soon, I'm cancelling everything! Guess what, my Sales Rep called me and chewed my #$$ for saying that. He actually went off the deep end and really lit me up! I called back after he hung up on me and asked to speak to a Supervisor or an Account Exc. I did get a call back from them and I explained what happened. I told them perhaps he had a bad day or something was going on in his personal life but I was willing to work with him because (and I have no idea why, but I still believed what he sold me on).

Fortunately for me, they took him out of the loop and I got a new Account Coordinator and I no longer had a salesperson to work with. Blessing or not... that is still a question! Again, onward and upward. At this point it all started to become a blur. I have no idea when my site went live, but I am assuming since the are still holding me to a 12 month contract it was December.

We started this odyssey in July. Somewhere all the way I got another new Account Manager. He actually told me what they sold me wasn't really anything that was going to work for me and he convinced me to just go with hosting. And now, I thought I was done in October or November (because I told my account manager via email and telephone that I was cancelling). I find out they want to still charge me for December/January. I'd say if you are looking at Hibu as a tool to help grow your business, understand that it won't. You will just get frustrated, ignored, passed from one person to the next, confused with which department does what and be throwing your money away. Hibu - Highway Robbery!

I have had my business in another country and moved here to Las Vegas. In my years as a business owner I have learnt that the one and only thing that matters in business is integrity. Without it you have nothing, our guy Larry and Hibu staff DO have lots of integrity. Promises were made and delivered, extremely professional, saved my business, thank you so much.
