We got a TON of value out of our time with the media captain - their team performed a site audit and made recommendations based on empirical data to improve our organic rankings for some target keywords and within a short 8-10 weeks we saw demonstrable results. Great to work with!
Working with Brittany and the The Media Captain team was very straightforward and concise. There was no confusion in the process and everything was laid out and executed as explained and agreed upon. The work was completed upon agreed schedules and they were able to accomplish even slightly more than what was thought possible at the beginning of the project. Britany was very knowledgeable and was able to understand our particular problems and business needs. She was able to create a strategy that was efficient and within our budget. We have already started to see the benefits of the SEO strategies that Brittany and the rest of the team implemented on this particular project. We will come back to The Media Captain for any future projects. We at Bali Hair Designs in Babylon NY want to thank Brittany and the Media Captain Team.
I would highly recommend TMC for all of your online marketing and social media needs. They have built beautifully-designed websites and managed the SEO for two of my churches, and I plan to call them in the future. In my opinion, they have the perfect combination of the expertise and customer service you need to achieve the best results. The organization, efficiency, team-collaboration, and communication make the TMC a pure delight to work with. You'll be glad you did.
My company (and I) have been working with The Media Captain for a few years now, and I do not exaggerate when I say they are the most helpful, communicative, friendly, and knowledgeable people I have ever worked with.I couldn't be happier with the exceptional service provided by The Media Captain team! From the very first consultation, their team demonstrated a deep understanding of our business needs and crafted a tailored strategy that perfectly aligned with our goals.The results speak for themselves – our website traffic has significantly increased, we've seen a noticeable boost in our organic online presence, and our PPC campaigns have never performed better. They are committed to transparency and communication. They are great at keeping us informed every step of the process for all projects, providing detailed reports and valuable insights that helped us make informed decisions. Their team is not only knowledgeable but also incredibly responsive and always willing to go the extra mile to ensure our satisfaction.I highly recommend The Media Captain to any business looking to elevate their digital marketing efforts and online presence. Their expertise and dedication have made a significant impact on our success, and we look forward to continuing our partnership with them!
It has been a highly rewarding experience collaborating with the Media Captain. The team’s approach to communication was characterized by transparency and effectiveness. Stefanie tailored a comprehensive package for my business, Rachelle demonstrated exceptional proficiency in executing advertisements that aligned with our requirements, and Katie skillfully crafted a comprehensive directory for our salon. Since engaging with the Media Captain, our salon has nearly reached full capacity, with only two studios remaining available. I would strongly recommend their services to those seeking to expand their business and enhance their visibility on social media.
Great knowledgeable team to work with on our website redesign and optimization project! I would recommend this company for others and their projects.
The Media Captain rocks! Jason, Brittany, and Hunter were all amazing to work with and so knowledgable on SEO. We've had some huge wins from their insights – like an influx of new leads generated for a location of ours after some tailored support. We feel like we got amazing value for our investment and highly recommend TMC team.
Will continue to use Media Captain. They have been great through the whole process. We threw a lot on their plate and they crushed it.
Excellent outfit to create and implement a new website design. Very efficient and great communications.
Response from the owner: Patrick, we're so glad you were happy with the website experience.
We have been using Media Captain quite some time now for our SEO/Adwords. We like them so much that they are rebuilding our website too! Their attention to detail is excellent and their team as a wide variety of skills. They make things easy to understand and are constantly updating us on the progress of our projects. You don't come across this type of service anymore! I cannot wait to continue to build our relationship with TMC!
Response from the owner: Kevin, we've really enjoyed working on your account. Thank you for the kind words.
Rachelle and the rest of the Media Captain team were phenomenal in helping us regain access to our locked Meta account. Extremely responsive and proactive in keeping us updated on progress and getting Meta support moving. They'll be our first choice anytime we need help in any social marketing and I can't recommend them enough.
Response from the owner: I'm glad we were able to help you out Cale! Don't ever hesitate to reach back out.

Response from the owner: This has been a fun account to work on! You all have such great stories to share, which makes our job easier. The engagement on your social accounts has been fantastic to see.
The Media Captain Team is AMAZING! They always welcome feedback which makes you feel like a genuine partner. And anytime I have questions, which is pretty often, their response time is phenomenal! Mandi has been a valuable resource to our team. I know I will always get honest and credible input, to help determine the course of action in marketing our services. And, it wouldn't be right, if I didn't mention the creativity of their design team! If you need assistance with marketing, you need The Media Captain. We highly recommend!!Lauren JohnsonDirector of Operations and Client Services I Point Law Co., LPA

The Media Captain helped us create a new logo and optimize our Google Adwords Campaigns and SEO for our self storage facilities at Arch City Storage. Stef and Sara were excellent at identifying opportunities and implementing a strategy to improve our overall performance. We enjoyed working with the whole TMC team and would definitely recommend utilizing their services.
Response from the owner: Thanks Jon! There were a lot of moving parts with your campaign. I'm glad Sara and Stef were able to tie it all together.
Working with The Media Captain has been a great experience so far. In a short time, I've seen a jump in rankings on keywords in the SEO campaign we're running. Great job!
Response from the owner: It was rewarding to see some quick wins based on the strategy we deployed! We appreciate the review Tom!
We work with the The Media Captain for our marketing and, recently, in the development of a new website and could not be more pleased with the work they do. Stefanie and her team have done a great job leading a very quick turn around on a great new website for our upcoming Spring season. They were great at leading and focusing the project while taking our input and building a partnership in the process. Sara and the marketing team is also doing a great job in our online search optimization and ads while educating us and keeping us informed on their progress. Highly recommend TMC for all of your business' marketing and web development needs!

Jason and his team are the absolute best! I left a voice mail and email in a state of panic due to our Google Business Profile getting deleted for no reason and Jason and his team got back to me right away. Not only did they put us at ease they worked with us extensively for weeks until we got resolution. They are professional, patient and experts in all media matters and we highly recommend you hire The Media Captain for any and all your media needs.
Response from the owner: It's always frustrating and scary when a Google Business Profile gets deleted. I'm glad we were able to assist you during this time.
The Media Captain provided a first-class experience! Everyone on their team is knowledgeable, professional, attentive and willing to go the extra mile to complete a project. We are extremely happy with the look and functionality of the final site, and look forward to continuing our relationship with digital marketing.
Response from the owner: Thanks for the kind words! We love how your website turned out. We feel it's a perfect representation of your brand.
It is really helpful that TMC has several services that they offer. We started using their agency for email marketing and then added their Paid Media services. They have been very attentive to our account, easily reachable, have provided a lot of support, great strategies and ideas. I find that it makes everything easier for me as a business owner because they are very organized. I also find it valuable that they also own a skincare based e-commerce business, so they are on top of trends, technology and strategies, as well as very relatable. I highly recommend TMC and their awesome team!
We here at Tisch Environmental have been utilizing The Media Captain's services for some time now and we have been thoroughly impressed. Their proficiency in the SEO and PPC fields is extraordinary. The TMC team has worked with us to create custom campaigns and strategies that fit our business and empower us to meet our business goals. We have also employed their services in redesigning some of our websites and they have shown to be well versed in this sector as well. I would recommend The Media Captain to anyone who is searching for an all-inclusive digital marketing partner.
The Media Captain has been working with PSE Consulting Engineers Inc. for several years now. With all of the changes in the digital landscape, its great to know that changes aren't the frightening things that they once were. Each ask we've made, The Media Captain has been quick to answer, and handle for us. The meetings we have with them regularly are keeping our website at the very top of search results, month after month - and year after year. Our SEO has never been stronger! With a company such as our own, that is licensed throughout the United States and in five Canadian provinces - we need as much reach as possible - and The Media Captain helps us to deliver those results, allowing us to land more business and create new clients - everywhere! Thank you to The Media Captain for helping our firm to successfully navigate and remain on top in a very competitive digital age.
I have worked with Media Captain for several years now. I came to them wanting a new website for our law firm and they were very attentive to my needs and had great communication. Within weeks we had a new website that surpassed my expectations. Media Captain then was able to increase traffic to my site and they have continued to service my digital media and SEO needs ever since. Thank you Media Captain!
Our growth has been "up and right" since hiring Media Captain. They are true experts and have a deep bench of specialists for anything digital that we have needed. We get same day responses on anything we need. They help us with both our local service business and national e-commerce business.
have worked with Meadia Captain for the last 2 years, we had been in business for 10 years before working with them and they have continued our growth, thanks
It was a pleasure working with The media captain team. They helped us improve our website by providing feedback and a strategy to optimized and improve it for seo in columbus.
Grandview Dental Care has been using The Media Captain for about 8 months now and we couldn't be happier. The improvements that we have seen across our SEO rankings through Hunter and the team's skilled talents has greatly improved our reach to the Columbus community. The team is organized and efficient and completes requests in a timely manner. We couldn't ask for more from a marketing company and look forward to their continued improvements and suggestions.
Stefanie, Erica, Sara, Jason, Austin and Michelle all have exceeded our expectations in taking over our SEO, PPC and mass emailing campaigns. In addition, their web development skills have been excellent in helping us migrate our very large ecommerce site to another platform.
Jason, Stephanie, and their team did an amazing job redesigning our website. We are very happy with the product, and we continue to work with them on other projects. They also have amazing customer support.
Great people and great service. They know what they are doing when it comes to website development. They helped me build a new website for my business and set up an advertising campaign. Can't say enough good things about the team at Media Captain.
Response from the owner: Thanks Tim! I'm so glad to hear that you're happy with the website we built for your firm. We love the way it turned out. - Jason Parks
Erica was so patient and helpful in helping me to fix a situation with my Google business page. She has many tricks up her sleeve and got me one step closer to having a verified account after weeks of issues. Highly recommend!
Jason at The Media Captain is very knowledgeable about all aspects of SEO. Our company needs very industry specific knowledge about PPC, organic advertising, organic marketing, local SEO and Google My Business (GMB) which The Media Captain has. Jason has great strategy ideas that I wasn't getting from my previous digital marketing company. If you are a commercial service business like we are and looking to grow, give The Media Captain a call. I don't regularly leave reviews, even through I should, but Jason really helped me out and saved me thousands in wasted marketing ideas. Thanks guys talk to you soon!
I have worked with Jason and his team for several years. We have had more than one Google or website emergency pop up and I have been continually impressed with their response time. If I send Jason an email at 7AM or after hours, he always responds right away. He understands how important our website and Google profiles are to our small business and his responsiveness is hugely appreciated. Website marketing can feel so stressful when your fate is the hands of the Google overlords so it is so nice to have someone I can always contact who I know will get back to me right away. Highly recommend.
The Media Captain has done a tremendous job helping our small business continue to grow with Google ads, FB ads, and email marketing. Francis who is our account lead is beyond passionate about our business and always responds to emails quickly. What I also enjoy above TMC is their one on one video calls each month. Previous agencies didn’t do this. Lastly, their pricing is extremely competitive. Give them a opportunity and you won’t be disappointed, but they also won’t pressure you for anything.
Response from the owner: Chris, I'm so glad that we've been able to help your eCommerce business grow. Thanks for the kind review.
Working with The Media Captain has been a great experience for my business. Their responsive team approach proved to be exactly what I needed to optimize the look and function of my website making it better for me and my customers. I highly recommend the team at The Media Captain!
Response from the owner: Thanks for the review Melanie! I'm glad we were able to fix the functionality of your website to improve the user experience.
Easy to work with. Since using their SEO services and then a new website build, my company is drowning in work. Can't hardly keep up!
Response from the owner: We love to hear this Dale! It was a pleasure helping you improve your web presence. - Jason Parks
The entire crew at Media Captain were great to work with when recreating our new website. Our bi-weekly meetings were always productive. They were prepared with ideas and responded quickly whenever I had questions. The finished product looks amazing and I would recommend Media Captain and their staff to anyone who is looking build a new website.
Response from the owner: Travis, it was a pleasure building your website. I'm glad you had a good experience in working with our team!
The Media Captain has helped out our business tremendously! We have been able to steadily increase our online presence through their expertise in SEO and developing a strong strategic marketing plan.

The guys and gals at Media Captain really now their stuff about creating websites and managing online advertising.
The team at The Media Captain were instrumental in updating our digital presence through our website renovation. They provided great suggestions, and were as hands on or off in the creative process as we wanted. We always had direct content with our project lead, and communication was clear and consistent. I appreciated their ability to either fully manage the environment long term or provide training for our team to make adjustments internally. It was a wonderful experience from start to finish. I would highly recommend.
Response from the owner: Thanks Kristin! We loved working on your site and we're proud of the end results. We appreciate you trusting TMC to execute on this project.
This company has helped our e-commerce store thrive on multiple different levels. If you are looking to improve ROAS, returning customers, target new customers, and more!! I highly recommend this team. I've had the pleasure of working with Francis personally and can't say enough good about him. He gets the job done and is always looking for ways to improve our metrics. A true professional. Thanks so much for all your help guys, we appreciate you.
Response from the owner: Thanks Aaron! We love helping clients improve their ROAS. Working on your eCommerce account has been very enjoyable.
The Media Captain is an amazing company to work with. I am with my second company that has used The Media Captain for various marketing purposes. My current company used them to not only design our website which we love but also for search engine optimization to help grow our business. The entire staff is extremely professional and friendly but Sara (our lead strategist) is awesome and does an excellent job explaining things so that I can understand them. I HIGHLY recommend The Media Captain for any and all of your marketing needs!
Response from the owner: Thanks Dan! We always enjoy getting to build a website and assist with the marketing for a synergistic strategy. We appreciate the kind words.
Working with Sara and The Media Captain has been a great experience for my company, RiversEdge Canoe & Kayak Outfitters. This is the second season that their team has provided SEO services to RiversEdge, and we look forward to continuing our relationship. Highly recommended!
Response from the owner: We still need to make it out to RiversEdge for a company kayak trip! This has been a fun account to work on. Thanks Rhett.
