"Tim has shown a deep commitment to our success and has gone above and beyond to make sure we reach the goals we set. In the last year, our company has experienced a 30.8% increase in conversions from organic search (3mos/3mos) and a 135.06% increase in page views from organic search (3mos/3mos). The conversation has shifted from "let's get more leads" to "we need to hire more employees to handle all this new business." Tim has been incredible to work with, and I'd recommend him highly to anyone looking to hire an SEO specialist."

Letter from the owner - Tim Brown

We are extremely excited to find clients where what we can do can benefit them – we are constantly looking for new ways to service clients.

Started as 'Tim B Design' in 2012, I created Hook Agency to serve a wide range of clients, but have increasingly found a niche in small business, home construction, and regional home services clients. Now the premier Minneapolis web design company for small businesses and the construction industry – we help people create a web presence they can be proud of.

We are obsessed with customer service, creative thinking, and substantial results for our clients – whether it be in the initial website design, or driving traffic through content marketing, SEO, and social media marketing.

We have 3 full-time employees, and a couple long-time contractors who we trust – all in an effort to focus on only delivering the highest value digital marketing services in Minneapolis for a reasonable price. If after talking through a website redesign project with a business owner or marketing director, I don't feel like we can make your company money, I won't write a proposal.

Yes – we are not for everyone. But no – we're not just for big companies. We know how to make marketing dollars worth it, and how to focus on the activities that lead to R.O.I. Read more about us

When I began searching for an SEO agency last year, I received a lot of generic proposals from SEO agencies who wanted our money but didn't show any dedication to learning our niche industry. Tim, on the other hand, came to the table armed with a list of keywords to go after, goals to reach, a knowledge of what our competitors were doing, and an eagerness to understand our industry. Since then, Tim has shown a deep commitment to our success and has gone above and beyond to make sure we reach the goals we set. In the last year, our company has experienced a 30.8% increase in conversions from organic search (3mos/3mos) and a 135.06% increase in page views from organic search (3mos/3mos). The conversation has shifted from "let's get more leads" to "we need to hire more employees to handle all this new business."

“My company launched our completely revamped website and couldn't be happier with the way the site turned out, and our experience with Tim B Design. They took our old website with outdated graphics, poor sales results and transformed it into a modern, incredibly attractive and sales thriving site. In 6 short months we have seen a 300% increase in sales by online traffic, a greater return than we had ever imagined. Our product keywords are up over 350% and our website can easily be found on top of any major search engine. When we met with them to discuss the project, we were immediately impressed with how easy they were to communicate with—just real, down to earth, believable people that don't talk over your head with tech jargon. They listened and spent ample time understanding our products and message to make sure the site layout was exactly what we wanted.These days, I feel that people get to know your business through your website before they even walk through your door so it better be a good first impression. Our site brings in new clients every single day. The best part is that my website is so easy to use, I am able to edit content whenever I need to. It’s become such a great tool for my business. I am so in love with my branding, I receive compliments everyday. The Tim B Design team is amazing. They are creative, quick and so much fun to work with, I highly recommend them to any business.”Brad LorenceOwner, Banksystems Marketing Incread more

Tim B Design is exceptional to work with! He and his team have a great attitude, they've shown excitement in helping my business, and they are go getters! When I first contacted Tim on his website he responded to me almost immediately which was great. After our first face to face meeting I knew I wanted to work with him. I agreed to have them design my logo and build my website. In the process of doing that Tim thoroughly educated me on the importance of SEO which I knew very little about. There was absolutely no pressure to purchase anything while he was educating me but I decided to enter in an agreement for that too. Shortly after starting SEO they had availability to take over my social media accounts and I jumped at that opportunity. I put my full trust in them and they are doing great with all of it. Because of their work I've already seen growth in the number of sales leads generated by my website which is terrific! If you need help with any of these areas you need to contact Tim B design. Thank you Tim and Bea!read more

Tim and his team were collaborative, responsive, fast and delivered quality work on a tight timeline. The Wordpress pages they built are easy to update, mobile friendly and we plan on using the template they built for landing pages down the road. Tim also provided insightful guidance on SEO and lead generation best practices along the way.

Without even paying a dime, Tim looked at my google analytics account and my google console account and gave invaluable free advice. Although his services were not a good fit for my needs at this point, I would highly recommend his services for SEO and high raking on google searches. Hook Agency is the way to go!

5 Things to Consider when Choosing a Web Design Company

Customer service is a lost art in many digital marketing companies, unfortunately. We consider this one of the most important aspects of what we do and critical to our long-term success. Whereas you might might get lost in the shuffle with another Minneapolis web design team, our company banks on humility and hard work, our 5-star customer feedback, and extreme responsiveness.

You may see a web design company that has an epic looking portfolio and marketing materials, but when it comes to the actual client work – the visual design leaves something to be desired. It could be that they have an A-team that works on their web design agency stuff, and a B-team that gets the client work. Honestly, I don’t know – but always check out their client roster and the actual work completed, not just the agency's site.

Frankly, we haven’t worked for every industry, so this doesn’t necessarily mean work with us. We do pride ourselves in our specialties in construction company and home services marketing, and financial services marketing. We admit it does help if an agency has worked for companies like yours before and can speak to your industry's particular challenges – and strongly suggest that you seek out a company that specializes in your industry.

If a company has been around for 30 years and just started offering web design services, you might want to consider if it's their specialty or if it’s just something tacked on to a long list of offerings. Many marketing companies have approached me to help augment their team only to realize they don’t have much of an internal team. I started as a freelancer and have grown the company's capacity. Our small but effective team is THE Twin Cities option if you're looking for professional visibility. With web design as our core offering that's complemented by a suite of services to drive traffic like SEO and Social Media Marketing. It’s not some side gig to a TV commercial, billboard, or PPC agency. Beware, a lot of people are selling websites, but not everyone specializes in them.

Each ‘Content Management System’ is like a type of car – you wouldn’t try to buy a Toyota from a Porsche dealership. WordPress web design requires some specialization as well – and I’ve worked on WordPress websites for 5+ years now, learning the ins and outs of it while finding ways to be more efficient than my competitors. I’ve seen people sell a client Magento (a content management system) because they knew they could get a better margin on it – even when the client could’ve had an extremely effective website with WordPress + WooCommerce. I honestly want you to have a website you can make changes on yourself and get the most effective solution for a reasonable price.

We love doing web design for residential home construction companies, roofing companies and home services clients! We love it because we have seen time and time again that a quality website paired with professional visibility in the form of SEO packages and social media can seriously positively effect their business.

We've created processes specifically for construction and home services clients – to get them higher on Google maps, to get trust from prospects and to drive more traffic through construction and home services SEO.

If you are a construction or home services client – we'd absolutely love to sit down with you and explain the opportunities that exist out there for getting more ideal customers more quickly.
