After trying to work with other marketing partners, I contacted Snigdha and her Webtage team a few years ago and I have never looked back. They are professional, responsive, insightful -- I could go on. Webtage also engaged us in weekly meetings towards expanding our reach and developing materials to promote awareness about various health initiatives throughout the year. Through Webtage’s efforts, Los Gatos Doc has seen an increase in patient referrals, provided numerous tips for leading a healthier lifestyle, and developed the capacity to communicate high quality and credible information in the midst of a health crisis. Whether discussing in depth market strategy focused on how to grow my business over the next 5-10 years or helping to design a simple and educative infographic about a pandemic which has been reshared far beyond my own practice, Snigdha and Webtage deliver the highest quality work on time, every time. I will do my best to continue my partnership with Webtage -- my business depends on it!
