What others say about us

Cohlab Digital Marketing is rated 4.8 out of 5 based on 37 reviews from around the Web.

Cliff and Heather are amazing to work with. They sat down with me to gain a good understanding of what I wanted in my website, who my target market was, my business plan, et cetera. They were so patient and helpful throughout the entire process. I felt it was just as important to them as it was to me that my website turned out exactly how I wanted it to – and they did not disappoint. Thank you, Cohlab!

I’ve worked with Cohlab for the past 8 months and highly recommend their work to any small business needing help with SEO practices! Jen was always clear in communication and wonderful to work with. They sent little cards to me throughout my time with them for holidays – their customer service was fantastic. Can’t say enough good things about them!

Nicola Harger

We’ve been working with Cohlab since last fall as part of a collective website refresh involving six separate organizations. They’ve kept the ball rolling, helped us phase it out, and after Phase I we were left with a great looking website that we are hoping to continue to build upon. Thanks for all your help!
