METAMEND CLIENT OF THE MONTH:
Enterprise Project Management Ltd.


"In May 2004 we awarded the search engine optimization work for our web site to Metamend. Our competition in the search engines was Microsoft, Pangaea, Systemcorp, and others, and we were nowhere to be found. Six weeks later we're number 1 in Yahoo, # 8 in MSN, and we've been swamped with new business and inquiries. Metamend's search engine optimization service delivered far more than anyone could have expected! It's worth every penny many times over!"
