“FrontPage Interactive has been terrific. They were fast at developing our new web site. Although our site was published just a few months ago, we are already getting business from it. We are also already appearing on the first page of Google searches for some keywords. The results have happened faster than FrontPage said they would. I highly recommend FrontPage Interactive.”

“We initially got in touch with FrontPage Interactive to help build our new website for our multi-office dental practice because they came well recommended from another business associate and they are a well-respected Chicago-area business. During our meeting with Al, he explained the importance of proper web development and search engine marketing for local businesses like ours. We have experienced substantial growth in new patient inquiries and we couldn’t be happier!”

“Two years ago we were becoming disillusioned with FindLaw in its management of our website. FindLaw developed our website, but did very little in subsequent years to keep our website current and to ensure that the website reached as many prospective clients as possible. Two years ago, we were lucky enough to receive a recommendation from a friend in a downtown firm to contact FrontPage Interactive. She told us that they had developed their website and how they were constantly working to keep their site updated and relevant with the changing laws and times. Their firm receives an amazing number of contacts from the public.
We contacted Al and met with him to discuss what our needs and expectations were and what services his firm provides to their clients. FrontPage completely redeveloped and updated our website and constantly contacts us regarding new opportunities to improve our site and to increase our connections through organic search engine optimization and social media, something FindLaw never suggested. Our prospective client contacts have increased significantly. Our firm is very grateful to Al and FrontPage for their hard work in support of our needs.”

“We had used Google Pay-Per-Click for our internet marketing effort for years. We saw very minimal traffic at a very high cost. We engaged FrontPage Interactive to design our new website and work on our SEO program and the results have been nothing short of astounding. Our traffic has grown by leaps and bounds as has our business. I can’t recommend them highly enough, they are professional, thorough and they deliver results!”

“Having started a new consulting company I understood that prospective clients would want to see my web site. I built one by myself only to hear from colleagues it looked unprofessional. Upon a recommendation from a good friend, I found Al at FrontPage Interactive. He was great to work with and completely guided me through the process. Now my site is bringing me business without having to even network.”
