We understand this and can offer quotes from a wide variety of insurance companies ranging from large national carriers to smaller regional insurers. As an Independent Insurance Agent, we don’t represent anyone insurance company rather we have the options to quote and write your policy(s) with the company that best suits your insurance needs. We take the time to gather the information, Inspect the property, run the reports and ask the questions necessary to determine which options best helps to protect your assets and property. Being that we quote with more than one company our process tends to take longer than the standard “get a quote in 10 minutes or less “pitch that some of the large national insurance companies proudly proclaim.

JC Sweet & Co. was founded to provide a website development and internet marketing solution for local business owners. For almost 10 years we have focused on helping local companies use the internet to improve visibility in their local market. We as a company create websites, manage content on websites and various social media platforms, and employ email marketing and internet marketing campaigns.
Many times web development companies will sell web design services and internet marketing products to a local business, without considering “Who, What, When,Where, Why, and What is Next?” Other times graphic designers are hired create a beautiful website design but because the site is not built using the latest technology and/or SEO tactics, Google has a tough time discovering the information on the site and the company never makes it to the top of appropriate searches.
We focus offering personalized services and take a more of an inclusive approach to our web development and marketing planning. We take the time to sit down face to face with business owners and support staff to not only discuss what has brought their company to the point they are at, but also where they want to go. Together as a team we will develop a plan of how to get there.
JC Sweet & Co. offers website management services on a monthly or as needed basis, and determine a plan based on the company’s comfort level with technology and available time and desire to learn. We will set up social media accounts and train users to implement a plan that will be comfortable to use. We are always up front with cost and timeline associated with our process.
