So I was fortunate in 2007 to start a school – Cumberland Academy of Georgia. My name is Debbie Scarborough, and I’m the headmaster and founder of Cumberland Academy of Georgia. We are a school here in Sandy Springs for high-functioning Autistic students, as well as students with ADD and ADHD students. We really work with kids fourth through twelveth grade.
When I first started I started with one student, which was my son. There was a need for this kind of school, so that’s why I took a big leap of faith and opened it. So I needed to build it. The only way I could build it was by getting out name out there and I had no reputation, I had no name, I just knew I was going to hire the best around me, and the only real way to get my name out there was through the internet.
I was fortunate enough to be familiar with Hughes Media and especially Deedra Hughes. So we’ve now been in business twelve years, this is our twelfth year, were SACS accredited we have over 100 students and we’re thriving. We get most of our contacts through the internet, through our SEO because were optimized. When you pull up special ed, when you pull up autism, when we pull up Aspergers, any of the keywords that weve chatted with Hughes Media about, we pull right up. So, that’s extremely important, and that’s where our leads come in! I’ll come in in the morning and I’ll see how many contacts we’ve received from the night before. And it’s a constant stream of new potential students for us.
We’re so grateful for what they’ve done for our school in order to be able to build it to the size we are today, and we continue to use Hughes Media not only for SEO but also for our press releases, they get involved in our website. They do so much for us. They’re involved with our fundraisers, even as detailed as the invitations and really being sure that we keep our brand and keep strong to our brand, so we are grateful for that relationship and how they have really been a huge factor in how we have been able to grow to this size.
So thank you Hughes Media! I can only say that for someone who is starting a business or someone who wants to grow a business, that you need to understand what SEO is, and how important it is to make sure your website is optimized and that once they get to it, it’s able to be able to move around in a way that is user friendly so you can get the most out of your website. Thank you again Hughes Media .

Hughes Media understands the dumpster rental and waste management business. They improved my website with great informational content about our dumpsters and the services we provide. They increased our visibility online, which in turn increased traffic to my website and increased readership. The site now generates leads that convert to business. This never happened before with previous SEO companies that I worked with. The HM team is hardworking, dedicated and honest and I would recommend their services to anyone.

Hughes Media’s effort, energy and efficiency was impressive and critical to the end results achieved in the launch of my business. Hughes Media’s design work in connection with my logo was thoughtful and deliberate. Having taken the time to understand my objectives, the art team was creative and precise in creating a distinct and unique logo. Hughes Media’s web design team worked collaboratively with the logo artists to seamlessly transform loose thoughts and concepts into a clear, informative and attractive website. Hughes Media was able to quickly process rough sketches into live web pages nearly overnight, providing skilled guidance and insight to ensure clean and contemporary web pages. Moreover, throughout the construction of the website, Hughes Media was responsive to questions, concerns, and clarifications. Having excelled in the design of my logo and website, I was confident Hughes Media would be best poised to optimize my branding opportunities and it did not disappoint. Hughes Media produced a stylish and clean business card format in addition to crisp and detail-oriented letterhead. Importantly, Hughes Media was able to create a consistent final product in all mediums including a logo, website, business cards, and letterhead. Hughes Media’s collaborative and creative approach to branding and web design were fantastic. The team’s flexibility and dedication enabled a small concept and a limited project to develop into an excellent final product and an efficiently more extensive full-blown branding and web design launch. Hughes Media’s fluid process employed during what is an exciting, yet stressful, short period, yielded an excellent final product.

We have worked with Hughes Media for the last three years. When we first launched our LA outdoor movie event series, the team worked quickly, efficiently and effectively to improve our page rankings so more people could find our events online. We’ve continued to increase attendance every season and appreciate all the work Hughes Media does on so many levels to help us be successful.
