BizeeBay is a team of true professionals. I run a regional steam cleaning service and after working with BizeeBay for 4 months my revenue has grown nearly 300%. I was skeptical about outsourcing marketing but after speaking to my wife she helped me realize that focusing on my daily tasks and current clients while delegating new client acquisition to the right professional service would help our company grow exponentially at a time when our growth had reached a plateau.Their strategy was customized towards my industry and regional interests. I can't say enough good things about the BizeeBay team it was a true pleasure to work with such effective people.
