I don’t want to toot my own horn… and luckily I don’t have to. People have been talking about what I’ve done because other people have been talking about them and their businesses due to my work with them!

When you need something, Rich delivers. We worked together on marketing initiatives. He has built three websites, developed landing pages, deployed email campaigns, shot and edited videos and photos, wrote blogs, created social media campaigns, and constructed profitable PPC and display ad campaigns from the ground up. His efforts have helped the company to exceed past performance and goals. Not only that, but he’s also created printed materials including brochures, cards, ads, and other traditional media and tied them into trackable digital campaigns as well. Furthermore, he helped with the company’s logo and branding design and was instrumental in bringing aboard Salesforce as a CRM. He takes his role seriously, is ambitious and productive, and works well in collaboration with others on the team. I’m optimistic about his career trajectory.

I’d like to recommend Rich Cruz and the work he has done. Our business, The Center for Integrated Medicine, LLC was looking for a web presence. We are a small medical & chiropractic group located in the south suburbs of Chicago trying to expand our practice. We hired Rich and his company to create a web presence, but what we got was much, much more.

Rich provided amazing service, tips to create and expand our brand and lots of encouragment. His work was timely. We would ask for an update and within hours the update to our website was completed. He addressed the content and quality of our site, a site that we are very, very happy with (

The website is part of our strategy to market through the internet and social media. Search ranking optimization, social media (Facebook, Twitter, Flickr,), blogging and other tools are now part of our strategy to promote our band. These were terms that I was vaguely familiar with and used Rich’s tutelage to maximize.

I’ve had several comments from patients searching for a doctor, that one reason they chose us was because the feeling they got by visiting our site. In essence, they reported that they knew us before their first appointment. I credit that to Rich and his company. This has been an invaluable tool to help grow our business.

Dr. Dino Pappas and Dr. Marie Tholl

Chiropractors, The Center for Integrated Medicine

Thank you so much for designing a great looking website that went beyond what I had imagined. I couldn’t be happier with the amount of work Rich did in such a short amount of time. I thought I wanted something simple to get my business started in the right direction with a basic web presence. However, Rich took my website to the next level, not only did it look great, but Rich added a brand to the website that matched my legal practice areas. Thank you so much Rich! Job well done!

George VanderWoude

Internet Consultant, WSI

When I met Rich, I was just starting my company. It was in the infant stages. I never knew how talented he really was. I messed around with two other website designers only to be left frustrated and left with nothing accomplished. So, I called Rich and we had a very interesting conversation. By the time we ended the call, I knew I needed his help. So we agreed to meet and he, on the spot, started to put my website together, walking me through a daunting task. Rich made it so easy and fun, that it I actually enjoyed putting it together!

Rich has worked tirelessly and quickly to get my website up and running… if I had worked with him in the first place, and not screwed around with the other companies, I would be a lot further along with what I want to accomplish, which is getting myself and the much needed information I have out there in order to help others. Rich has also created my logo and business cards…Rich has more knowledge about branding and web presence than any one I have met. Rich has been a pleasure to work with and I will be working with him for years to come!!

Tony Dinon

Motivational Speaker, MVP Preferral Systems

I want to thank you for the great advice you have given me in growing awareness of my business Playful Put Ons Singing Telegrams and Humorous Appearances. You created one of the most memorable business cards around for me; one that I still get business from even a year after giving it to potential clients. Your assistance (or should I say intervention) on my web site has absolutely gotten me noticed. Because of your skills in “placement enhancement” with my site I have actually begun receiving calls from out of state clients for local telegrams. Like most other business people I know, getting my web site from page 535 to page 1 or 2 on the search engines is another thing I was not able to do on my own. Thank you for making your skills and knowledge available not just to the Big Guys and corporations who have the huge marketing budgets and resources behind them, but to those of us who are joining the team that built America to begin with…The small business.Your expertise is worth the dollars invested to grow the business I’ve invested my time and my heart in!

Joy Polcaster

Owner, Playful Put Ons Singing Telegrams

Rich done an amazing job on our website/Wordpress! Rich always went the extra mile for us to make sure our site was special, unique and better than we ever imagined! Thanks so much Rich for your hard work, amazing creativity, attention to detail that made our site one that we are very proud to show to all our customers and future customers! I would recommend Rich to any business looking to take their business to a new level of success!

I first hired Rich to re-launch our agency’s website with a focus on SEO maximization. What first impressed me was Rich’s diligence and knowledge base. After our site was completed it was time for training. Rich met me on Skype and showed me how to navigate the site administration functions so that I can make necessary site updates. Rich is also a savvy business owner and will continue to receive work orders from our agency clients whenever our clients need to build new websites.
