A Good Referral

We're looking for three types of clients, outlined below.

Examples: Software Providers, Transportation, Food and Beverage, Education, Non-profits, etc

Small or Medium Sized Business

Looks like:

A company with 10-500 employees or $10m-50m in revenue located anywhere in the US. Their website is outdated or underperforming. They don't have the time or expertise to handle a website redesign on their own. Or they need help maintaining the website and ongoing marketing efforts.

What to listen for:

  • The website isn’t generating enough leads or qualified leads
  • The website doesn't help them close deals
  • Complaints about an unresponsive web developer

Tech Start-ups

Looks like:

Start-ups often don’t have the budget for a full-time marketer or web person. Or they have so many marketing initiatives, they just can't keep up with it all. We can step in and help them execute strategies and create content. We become the fill-in employee until the start-up is ready to hire more people full time.

What to listen for:

  • Start-up people work long hours and may complain they have too much to do and not enough time to do it.
  • Or they may be asking if you know anyone who can do web work.

Big Marketing Departments

Looks like:

Companies like GoDaddy and PayPal are too busy working on their product and seldom have time to work on their own marketing websites. Smack Happy can swoop in to save the day. We can update the marketing website, create landing pages and/or social graphics and compelling infographics.

What to listen for:

At larger companies, high-level marketing people will complain about not getting their website updated often enough or how they are short on resources.


How to Bring Us Into the Conversation

“My website company has an opening to take on a new website project, would you be interested in chatting with them about your website?”

“When is the last time you redesigned and organized your website?"

[if over 4 years]

"You might want to consider a revamp for the new year, most websites get bloated and unfocused over time. I have a great firm I can introduce you to.”

“How is your website performing for you? Are you getting leads or is it helping you close leads?”

How to Introduce Us

If you find yourself talking to our future client, you can say something like:

“I know the perfect person who can help you, would you like me to give you an introduction?”


“I just met someone who can help you with this, I’d love to introduce you. Would that be OK?”

An email introduction is best, it can be short and sweet:

Hi [name],
I'd like you to meet Nicole Hanusek. She and her team at Smack Happy Design are the WordPress experts. Their custom websites are always delivered with these three pillars intertwined: design, functionality, and security. Their designs are created from scratch, tailored specifically for their clients (design). Their number one goal when building the site in WordPress is making sure you can easily make edits (functionality). And after they launch the website, they'll maintain it on a daily basis to keep it healthy and open for business (security).

Hi Nicole, I’d like you to meet my friend, [name], he/she owns a small business and needs your help with…
