Creative California is a Sacramento, California web design and marketing firm. Our goal is to support local businesses by providing professional marketing services aimed at growing your company’s customer base, reputation, outreach and more. While working with you, we always keep our values at the top of our minds:
We love what we do. Every day, our team is excited to learn about new things that can help our customers in the form of new trends, programs, information, perspective and more. We focus that passion on every project we do, and do everything we can to transfer that passion to our customers.
We understand that communication is a huge issue when dealing with SEO and design companies. Our commitment is to always communicate with our customers with clarity, frequency, and to be completely transparent in everything we do.
Most importantly, our goal is to grow our clients’ businesses – so we think of them as our partners. We share common goals, do everything we can to understand their business, and everything we do is with the best interest of the client in mind, not just to gain another dollar.
Our team is comprised of individuals who share the same values and commitments to better our clients’ businesses. We’re all local California residents, and don’t ever outsource our work overseas. When you’re communicating with us about your project or goals, you’re communicating with one of the awesome people below:
A California native, Josh attended college in Kentucky, and in 2003 began his graphic and web design career at a real estate publication. In 2009, he returned home and founded Creative California after seeing the common issues that companies deal with when hiring designers: communication, deadlines, professionalism, and a focus on money instead of purpose. Since then, Josh has worked to become an SEO expert and marketer, offering insight and advice to his clients, often giving them the much needed “kick in the pants” to get a better grasp of their marketing. His passion is to see Sacramento businesses excel in a city and region constantly hit by negative press as not being “business-friendly.” He enjoys fanatically following the 49ers, Bourbon, and making countless puns, much to the chagrin of his co-workers.
John wears a number of hats around the office, including content and keyword researcher, writer, editor, and website-maintainer-type-person. John has a background in math and science, but graduated from UC Davis with a super-practical BA in English in 2008. However, his broad background means that he knows a little about a lot, which can be pretty darn useful when it’s necessary to quickly get up to speed in understanding a client’s business—grappling with the finer details of the deregulated power industry in Canada, immigration law, and electronics repair all in the same day keeps things interesting. When he’s not staring at a computer screen, John likes to read and take as many naps as possible. He also does a bit of international travel now and then—in fact, he has a trip coming up this summer to Istanbul.
What Customers Have to Say
“Josh and Creative California are your answer.” – Joe @ FroYo Run
Like many of our customers, Joe was a repeat client. We originally helped him build a website for his women’s mud run race series in Autumn of 2014.
Sometime later, he sold off his business and started a new one from scratch, so he called us up and asked us to help him get his new website started off on the right foot. Check out the website we built for FroYo Run to get an idea of what we can do to help your new business establish a great web presence right from the get-go!
“Josh goes above and beyond the scope of SEO” – David @ Digitron
Digitron Electronics brought us on-board because, while they had a great site and an established reputation in their industry, they were struggling to bring on new clientele. After we went to work for them, they quickly saw measurable improvements. Within 45 days, their impressions went from 55 per day to over 700 per day, an improvement of 1200%, and along with that, a major improvement in their lead generations.
“I would wholeheartedly recommend Creative California…” – Joel @ EnergyRates
We were originally contracted in the Fall of 2014 to build EnergyRates, a site designed to help business owners and residential customers in Canada find the best rates for their electricity and natural gas needs.
It was a challenging job that required a lot of research on our end, but the work came together without a hitch, and Joel went away happy. But months later, Joel called us up again out of the blue, asking us for more help. While the site looked and worked great, he knew that the site wasn’t getting the views and public attention that it deserved.
So we went to work finding opportunities for generating publicity and organic backlinks. EnergyRates quickly started gaining momentum, is now ranking competitively for every search keyword that we targeted, and most importantly, is seeing a marked increase in conversions.
If you know that you have a great site, but are ready to take it to the next level, contact us today to find out what we can do to grow your business.
