Helping businesses go digital

Websites

Inspired by real life

Most business owners are just too busy building and growing their companies to worry about taking care of and constantly updating their own websites.

At MBJ we take care of a website’s design, development, and management.

We go far beyond creating tailor-made sites for businesses. We work like your personal IT team, empowering your company online by managing your website’s performance, generating insightful web reports, and carrying out security checks and upgrades to make sure your online storefront always perfectly reflects what you do. We’re helping businesses go digital.

For SMEs, this is a game-changer.

“When we founded MBJ, the idea was to provide companies digital and social media consulting. Quickly we realised that there was a need for high-quality digital products at a lower, more manageable price-point. So many small and medium-sized enterprises have been left behind, without the know-how to manage their own website or the financial capital needed to hire often overpriced agencies. Our mission was clear: we’re helping businesses go digital.”
