Custom websites & digital marketing for growing businesses in Maine & beyond

We’re a digital agency focused on one thing – growing your business. The world is changing, and just having a website is no longer enough. We can help you attract new customers and transform your image on the web.

Free Website Review

Your website is your most important marketing asset.

It’s the first impression your customers will have. It’s the door to your business that’s open 24/7/365. It’s the polite employee who asks “how may I help you today”?

We want to help you craft a proven plan and a strategy to transform your business’s website and digital marketing strategies – from your website to your advertising – and then help you implement every step of it so you’re free to enjoy your success.

Here’s how we work

1. We work with you to understand your business and find the bottlenecks

Like a check-up at the website doctor’s office, we’ll get to know your business and review your current website and marketing assets. You will receive a “diagnosis” of key bottlenecks that must be addressed.

2. We plan your digital transformation

We will come up with a tailored version of our success blueprint – the map to your success online. You will see exactly how we plan to fix your website and digital sales methodology and take you from “stuck” to “living the dream”.

3. We capture your message

Our copywriting experts will help re-write your messaging and craft a brand story that will resonate with your customers’ desires. We’ll help you hire a local photographer or videographer to capture high-impact visuals to use in the remainder of the process.

4. We design, build, and launch your website

Depending on your needs, we will hand-craft custom website designs, landing pages, and ADs. After your approval, we will get to work with the technical nitty-gritty while you stay focused on your business.

5. We optimize your website for "organic" traffic

After launching your new marketing assets, we will make sure your content and local business listings are fully optimized for high conversions – so when you start spending money on ADs, it’s like pouring gasoline on the fire.

6. We help you with strategic digital advertising

We’ll take care of on-going digital marketing on Facebook, Google, Instagram, and more. First, capturing “low-hanging fruit” like re-targeting – then moving on to capturing new leads for your company. We’ll find them, and you’ll give them a great experience with your company.

7. We maintain and update your website & campaigns

You don’t really want to spend your valuable time figuring out how to manage your website – right? We’ve got a team that can handle ongoing change requests and can take the headache out of on-going maintenance.

You can expect great things!

Our clients aren’t just satisfied, they have real business results.

“Speaking of growth, we credit most if not all of our impressive growth to this amazing website you built. Class registrations tripled, lactation tripled, and we are estimating about 30 more births this year than last. Best money ever spent was on YOU Ben Kouba. Thank you.”

“I worked with LEAF9 for nearly a decade, including collaborating on web design projects in the academic realm, construction/real estate, and wholesale. Every meeting that I had with Ben was productive and professional, and I always appreciated his fresh approach to projects. He is creative, very responsive, and current on the latest technology and design trends. Whenever I referred LEAF9 to someone, I knew that they were in good hands.”

“Working with Ben on the design was a delightful process. He patiently guided us through the stages and applied his professional touch to the things we wanted. He communicated with us promptly and his feedback was very helpful and informative.”

“Ben is one of the best designers I have worked with. It is rare that someone can take a basic idea from the customer and create a great looking end product that needs littler or no revision. Ben is that type of designer and I give him the highest possible recommendation.”
