For more than a decade, UpCity’s mission has been—and continues to be—to help businesses find B2B service providers they can trust. The UpCity Recommendability Rating was developed to determine a service provider’s credibility and recommendability, giving UpCity the confidence to recommend them to the more than 1.5 million businesses that visit their site.

Each year, UpCity analyzes and scores more than 70,000 service providers based on their UpCity Recommendability Rating and acknowledges the top national and local providers with an UpCity Excellence Award. The results are in, and we won!

We are ecstatic to announce that the Blue Ridge Media team has been recognized as one of the top B2B service providers of 2021 in both the U.S. and the Lakewood area by UpCity!

This recognition has been driven in large part by our 5-star review rating on UpCity. Here are a few of our favorite pieces of feedback we’ve received from our incredible customers:

“Blue Ridge Media Company is a great company in which to work. They provide professional assistance to non-computer oriented people; explain the needs of the company; and make it easy to understand how to operate the website and keep it up and running. The people are friendly, knowledgeable and quite experienced. We are very pleased with the service we have received from Cecilia, Mario and the entire gang at Blue Ridge. We would highly recommend their services to anyone looking for website design, upgrades and overhauls.” – Leslie Hannan, Blue Ridge Media customer

“Blue Ridge Media Company has been phenomenal to work with! Smooth, easy process. Quick service. Always polite, friendly, and professional!” – F. D. Hurka Metrology, Blue Ridge Media customer

It is such an honor to receive this award and we want to thank the UpCity team for the recognition. Over the last 6 years, we have created and refined marketing strategies specifically focused on small to medium size businesses. Our 90%+ retention rate is driven largely by the boutique, customer first experience uncommon to digital marketing companies, so thank you to our loyal customers for helping us achieve this success
