Award Winning Web Design!

Our owner and CEO, John Lehmberg, has a philosophy on leadership that relies heavily on team.  It’s always been his desire to create an environment where people LOVE what they do, so that they always give their best.  He believes that each person in his company is uniquely created to brings their gifts to the team, to enhance the ability of Make It Loud to serve its clients well and to achieve.  In that sense of the word, being a part of the Make It Loud team probably feels more like “family” than “business” for those of us who work here. It is these people, who have put their love, excellence, expertise, creativity, and passion into this endeavor we call Make It Loud, and these awards are just as much a result of their efforts as anyone else on our team.  Those of you who have encountered them and have gotten to know them have seen them in action, and it’s a beautiful thing.  Our work is deeply personal to us because of its importance, it literally helps put food on the table for small business owners and assists small businesses in the Gwinnett and Atlanta areas in their success.  To that we are committed and will continue to strive, delivering whatever we can to business owners to make them successful.

So, with that, I (John) would like to extend some “thank you.”

Also to those who were on our team prior, those people who have served at Make It Loud for a season. Thank you for bringing your unique gifts and talents to our company.

To the Gwinnett Chamber, thank you for showing us what it was like to network in the community and who helped John in getting the business started.

To all the fantastic local networking groups that we have been a part of over the years:  The Gwinnett Business Network, The Suwanee Network, The Suwanee Business Alliance, The Buford Business Alliance, The Dacula Business Association, and the North GA Business Connection.

And finally, to our clients.  We hope you know how serious we take our work for you, how much we adore you as people and as small business owners, and how proud of your success we are.  We work hard for you, and I can’t promise well always get it right, but we sure strive to because we care about your company and our work deeply.

In closing we want to tell you that were grateful beyond words for this honor, and grateful to God for his kindness to us.

Gwinnett County has a fantastic local newspaper in the Gwinnett Daily Post.  Keith Farner, sought out Make It Loud’s owner, John Lehmberg, about 9 months ago to do a story on him in the GDP to give an overview of his life, and how he got involved in the ministry and owning a web design company.  That article can be viewed here.

This past week, Keith wrote another article, this time featuring Make It Loud Web Design, and their transition to their new storefront location up by the Mall of Georgia on Highway 20.  Make It Loud moved into its new storefront in January and opened its doors officially on February 5th, launching with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony hosted by the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce.  Over a hundred business owners and professionals attended the event from all over the Atlanta Metro Area.  The GDP article can be seen here.

Make It Loud Emerges with a New Concept– a Storefront for Website Development and SEO. Web Development Atlanta, Web Design Atlanta, Web Design Georgia

Nowadays, you can find a web marketing company around every corner. Most of them are fly-by-night operations that are infamous for over-promising yet under-delivering. Alot of these companies are a one-man-band operating out of a home office that knows how to “make a website” but rarely exhibiting expertise in marketing. However, a web company in Buford hopes to change the game by taking the risk of opening a store front after 9 years of outstanding business.

Make It Loud, a company that provides website design and search engine optimization (SEO) solutions for businesses large and small, announces the grand opening of its first storefront on February 5th, 2013.  The company, which has been in business since 2003, is leading the charge in a revolutionary business model for web design and internet marketing services, combining the expertise of an internet company born on the web with the convenience and face-to-face interaction of a retail location.

“Most companies would not risk the overhead [that comes with a brick-and-mortar storefront],” says Web Marketing Specialist, Steven Sukovich. “We hope to see this concept take flight and become the standard for the future of web marketing. People can walk in a store with an idea and walk out with something tangible.”  Make It Loud sees big potential in the unique business model, because while in today’s world so much of the marketing of a business revolves around a potent online presence, finding the right company to meet your needs and budget can be tricky.  With so many fly by night website development companies on the web, it can be difficult to get your site off the ground, let alone build the trust and relationship necessary to continue to grow your online presence even after your site is launched.

The storefront, located off Buford Drive near the Mall of Georgia, boasts a conference room, showroom, and training room.  While the conference room and showroom are geared toward a customer ready to discuss and purchase MIL’s services, the training space offers classes to those interested in learning website design and internet marketing skills from the experts.  The company currently offers seven classes, including several on SEO, which has become the cornerstone for keeping your business top-of-mind on sites like Google and Bing.

Whether you are an entrepreneur looking to start-up a web company or a well-established organization looking to grow your bottom line with the power of Web Marketing, Make It Loud is ready to help you find the right approach to grow your business on the web.

If you need a consultation about SEO or Web Design, our company, Make It Loud, can at the very least help you to discover if SEO or a good website fits into your budget.  It doesn’t cost anything to find out and we’d be honored to serve you, face to face when geographically possible.  Feel free to contact us by email at:, visit our website at:, or call us at: 678.325.4007.  Even if you’re not local to Gwinnett or Atlanta, we’d be happy to do an assessment.
