Our Supersonic Story

Fiercely indie. Fighting for small business owners everywhere.


Nice to connect! Thanks for stopping by to learn a little about us.

We started Supersonic Sites® because we had grown tired of seeing small business owners struggle with their online marketing and websites.

After spending nearly a decade running a high-end boutique marketing agency focused on mid-market companies, we decided we needed to HELP small business owners succeed too. We grew tired of watching clients and friends be charged just for constantly fixing their WordPress websites, solving hosting + hacking tragedies, and trying to figure out why their sites were growing painfully SLOOOOOOOOW. Business owners should be focused on growing their business, not fiddling around with website and online digital marketing problems!

So we asked ourselves: Do all small business owners NEED a big freelance website that could costs thousands of dollars? Are all the free and cheap online DIY alternatives truly a solid solution? Not everyone wants to be handed a 'wrench to go fix their own car'.

So we took our decades of marketing and web development experience and built Supersonic 'Forever Sites®,' a beautifully hand-crafted framework code used to create a semi-custom layout to fit what your business offers. Your “Forever Site” will never break, never go offline, and can be live in about a week or less. Finally, small businesses wouldn't have to worry about their websites ever again!

We realized that even though our clients could  have a blazing fast solid website, it wouldn't matter if no one was able find them online. There are tons of solutions for building a website, but no one is helping small businesses with their online marketing too. So we set about optimizing our online ad offerings to help our small business clients. Supersonic Ads® is focused on taking our high performing online marketing knowledge and putting the foundation of a solid online ad campaign together.

Supersonic is a redo, a rethink, a simplified, potent reintroduction of websites and online marketing. A fresh launch, the way it was always meant to be. (It should be EASY).

Supersonic is our love letter to small businesses everywhere, and we’re sending it to you on the Web.

Fiercely indie and devoted to you,
