I recently had a website designed by Data Driven Design and I could not be happier with the work that was done. Paul was attentive to every suggestion I had and created the website faster than expected. He took the time to update me throughout the process- hopping on calls, emails and texts. I would highly recommend Data Driven Design to anyone looking for a professionally designed website!

Data Driven Design... where do I begin?!? I'm helping open a new boutique hotel and to be honest... I have no clue where we'd be without their team. From building us a gorgeous website, to being available every step of the way to answer any (and I mean ANY) question that popped into my head, they've been a pleasure to work with. They are also incredibly patient and helped us get every little detail right...they definitely know a thing or two about great customer service. Not only have they helped us build a beautiful website, but equally important (if not MORE important) they know exactly what needs to go in on the back end to help your business become visible. I've loved working with them.

Paul and his team are incredibly helpful, responsive, and professional (plus, great fun to work with!), and we at The Next Door couldn't have made the changes to our brand and our website without him. He is always willing to help, to train, and to encourage... always quick to respond to messages... and always full of helpful information that he's more than happy to share. Highly recommend working with them if you have a need or get the chance!

Paul and his team have been instrumental in helping me understand the basics and importance of digital marketing. I was a student in the Data Driven Academy and followed up with a solo session because I found the information so useful. I would highly recommend working with Data Driven Design!

I've worked with Paul for a long time and the one thing that stands out most is how personally invested Paul becomes in the people, projects, and challenges he takes on. I trust him to take care of digital needs like they are his own; and he delivers. As the leader of Data Driven Design you are in good hands with this team!

Knowledge - Energy - Honesty - ResultsWhat more could you ask for? Data Driven Design led by Paul and Kate Hickey give every business the tools they need to be at the top of their industry. Data Driven Academy should be a requirement for the marketing department of every business and company out there. Nobody does a better job teaching the secrets to success.

As a not-for-profit senior living manager, it's important that we allocate all marketing dollars wisely. Just as important is choosing the right companies to spend our budget with. The company must be responsive, knowledgeable, and willing to listen to any concerns or changes. Data Driven Design is all this and more. We have not only received great response with our online campaigns, we have received excellent service from Katie and Paul!

Paul Hickey stays in my top 10 favorite people list. His team are excellent developers, SEO monsters and problem solvers. Starting with the data is such a sound concept. He is also generous with his knowledge. We have done some pretty amazing sites together and I have recommended him frequently. Aside from his rap, he's a pretty cool guy! 😎😎

Paul, Kate and company have been a huge part of our business for several years. I lost count of how many projects they've completed for us and our diverse clients at New Heartland Group. In a sea of sameness and over speak and techno-babble, Data Driven has empathy for their clients and the digital chops to get it done. Oh, if it's not totally perfect, they are always available to make it right. Stop reading all of these reviews and hire them already!

Paul Hickey and his team are amazing partners to Stewart Transportation. From the first encounter with our web redesign in 2013 to present, every engagement has been exceptional. Paul listens, coordinates and delivers every expectation and then some. His company has been our partner on web redesign, rapid response form development, logo refresh and now our social media and marketing team is learning with DDD in the Data Driven Design Academy! Awesome company, awesome results and a lot of fun to boot! Thanks, Paul!

After attending the Data Driven Academy classes, I will say that I feel much more capable with social media and digital marketing.

Our Belief

The thing about Google Analytics is that the more complicated you make it on yourself, the less likely you are to ever use it. The number one thing about Google Analytics just at a practical standpoint is that nobody actually uses it. They put the code on their website. They feel good about having the code on their website, and then they walk away and never check it. The thing I want for all of you is to want to check in on it every month. So I encourage you to keep it at the simplest possible level and focus on a few metrics each month that can help your business. I want you to want to check in on it every month. The more you create work for yourself, the less likely you are to ever use it as a tool to help your business.
