Read about my husband’s web development work praised in the New York Times:

The consultant suggested a developer, Chris McMahon, to build the company site. “We trusted our consultant wouldn’t give us a poor recommendation,” Ms. Mohr said. But after getting the recommendation, Ms. Mohr did check him out. “I looked at half a dozen of his other client Web sites and spent a lot of time talking to him about ideas,” he said. “I hired him because he talked to me like a real person. He helped me pare down all my creative ideas to something that was more manageable and effective.”

Mackey Advisors invested $1,500, Ms. Mohr said, and got a site she and her team can update themselves, that allows them to interact with visitors, and that has the clean look they wanted (see photo above). Plus, she said, it’s not like every other wealth management side: “This Web site is more light-hearted than the sites of other wealth management firms. We wanted people to feel comfortable and not intimidated to talk about their money goals or challenges.”

At the end of 2012, the company, which takes in $1 million in annual revenue, decided it wanted to learn how to engage more with Web visitors. It invested an annual fee of $7,000 in a package that uses a WordPress plug-in to add the Hubspot software to the existing site. The software captures an e-mail marketing list from visitors who click on the site’s downloadable content. Hubspot also provides extensive traffic analytics to help determine which content performs the best. “Hubspot allows us to use our best keywords to create content, which helps our S.E.O. ranking and drives more visitors to our Web site.”

While its been just three-months since Mackey Advisors started using Hubspot, the results have been promising. “We’ve had a 25-percent increase in Web traffic since we started using Hubspot,” Ms. Mohr said, “and our interactions with qualified prospects are up significantly as well.”
