At Howard SEM Group we wholeheartedly believe in transparency and want to make sure you know that we have become an official affiliate with some of the companies listed below. We ONLY list companies where we have found a high value proposition, great customer support and a benefit to us where we feel it needs to be shared with others. So in short we recommend these companies and feel they would make a great business resource for our clients, visitors, and any small or medium sized business.
Web & Email Hosting
In the SEO & Web Design field one of the key factors we look at is web hosting up-time and good English speaking support that is attentive & knowledgeable. We found just that with InMotion Hosting being a customer of theirs from their early days. As we track almost all of the leading and quite often higher priced hosting we find that InMotion Hosting beats them out from an up-time perspective with U.S. English speaking 24/7 support which is actually rare to find these days. We enjoy working with InMotion Hosting and find the value proposition worth sharing. Also, Howard SEM Group visitors receive even a bit more off the pricing than expected.
Website Firewall & Antivirus
Sucuri has helped us not only secure and protect our own sites but also quite a few clients of ours. We specialize in designing & building WordPress Business Class websites, which due to WordPress’s popularity is constantly under attack by hackers. We had an ugly hacking of our site 2 yrs ago, and received quotes to clean and repair that were outrageously expensive from other companies. Sucuri came in and within a few hours had our site back to normal operating, no damage and fully secured. I’m a believer and a client of Sucuri, and I recommend them to all of our clients, friends and family.
Invoicing & Bookkeeping
Freshbooks was wonderful find for me, I’ve used Quickbooks and other bookkeeping software and nothing compared. The value proposition vs. the cost was a no brainer for me. The Customer Support is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced and should be modeled after as I have yet to experience any hold times. Having the service in the cloud allows me freedom and security while I am away from the office allowing me to handle business ANYWHERE easily from my phone or laptop. I highly recommend Freshbooks to any small business owner as in my professional and personal opinion it is the undefeated champion that allows me to focus on my work! ~Anthony Howard – Principle Consultant @ Howard SEM Group
