hibu Alternative for Small Businesses Digital Solutions
Reasons why you are here.
Raised your Rates (again)
Yes, hibu is raising their rates again and locking you into yet another full year commitment with their services. If their services worked as they said they did your company wouldn’t be suffering. You wouldn’t be looking for a better and cheaper alternative.
Your small business has been stuck with not only and underperforming website for years. But by today’s standards, it’s UGLY. Also, it’s not mobile friendly and over 50% of web traffic is now searching the web using mobile phones. It is time to upgrade to a website that will actually bring traffic to your website.
You’ve paid hibu year after year for a Yellowbook listing that doesn’t work online or in the book itself. Locked into their yearly contracts called “service agreement” without ever receiving “service”. The only time you hear from hibu is when the Yellowbook is about to go to print and they are pushing you into yet another year long contract because it’s printed on paper, that no one ever looks at.
Are you able to truly say how much pay per click ad spend is being pocketed by hibu? Do they take a managing fee of 20%, 50% or even 90%? They will not ever tell you when you ask. They dance around that topic each and every time with zero transparency to the consumer. It’s time for a change.
They show you value with truly meaningless monthly reports that don’t’ reflect how the business is doing. During the slow season, you’ll notice that the bars will usually increase to show more value to the customer.
Years old websites that were never designed for this new thing called a “smart phone” are still the common website that hibu creates for their clients. They aren’t running an SSL (secure socket layer), they aren’t mobile friendly, and they have yet to see the top ranking of any search engine results page (SERP).
