Who We Are

We are hard-core website heroes dedicated to helping businesses. Born of frustration with the status-quo, Cohlab became a way to increase transparency and communication in the website-building process, while providing digital marketing expertise.

Co-founders Cliff and Heather Robbins watched a relative’s business struggle with mounting costs and poor communication during a website build process, followed by a lack of digital marketing assistance to the fledgling website.

Cliff and Heather created Cohlab to listen to the struggles, hopes, and dreams of American small businesses, then to provide consistent, clear direction and communication, and finally to bring their efforts to fruition with a new website and effective marketing strategy.

Our team is based in Minnesota but operates remotely across the region. We’re ready to help you at a moment’s notice - just turn on the Cohlab-Signal™. We produce our websites and digital marketing locally, organically, and with fair-trade* practices. Cohlab is a Google Partner and a Grow With Google Partner.

*Not actually Fair Trade Certified™ or associated with Fair Trade USA® in any way.

Our Software

We push the envelope. Our team has built and modified software to make our clients’ lives easier and provide new opportunities for companies to have access to websites and digital marketing. Here’s what we’ve built.

Free Image Search Tool

Developed in 2016, the Free Image Search Tool allows you to search ALL of the best free image online libraries at the same time. Using advanced Google search terms, our tool takes your search term and returns results from sites like Pixabay, Pexels,, and more free image sites all at once in a single search.


Developed in 2017, Trustdyx is a wholly Cohlab-developed CMS focused on extreme security and cost-effectiveness for smaller websites. Our website offering is 99% hack-proof - accessible only from Cohlab workstations.


Since 2018, Cohlab.Reviews has been collating reviews from around the web onto Minnesota business websites. Once you have your profile set up on various review sites like Google, Facebook, Yelp, Yahoo, and others, Cohlab.Reviews can pull all of your reviews onto a single page of your website, or into a carousel. Get notifications of new reviews and send out email requests for reviews to your clients as well.

Website Design & Development

If you can believe it, some of our clients think we're "responsive", good at "listening", "friendly", "prompt", "communicative", and "quick to answer". We're not sure where they got that idea.
