Our Purpose

Supercharge Small Business

We ignite small business growth with effective, budget-friendly web design and digital marketing solutions, free of jargon and deceptive sales tactics.

Why Slamdot?

We're Not a Design Firm or "Creative" Agency

We're on a mission to challenge the status quo, cutting through the tricks and confusion that's all too common with marketing agencies.

Results Over Awards

Design firms are overly focused on selling design services, flaunting words like “design” or “creative” in their names. While design might be their priority, it doesn’t necessarily translate to revenue, except for them. We have talented designers, but we’re not here to chase design awards from our peers. Our focus is growing your business, not exploiting it.

Real Marketing Experts

Agencies that employ mostly designers can only push clients towards DIY or “set it and forget it” solutions for the rest of their marketing needs. We have a well-rounded team of genuine marketing experts. Our Google-certified strategists manage campaigns from start to finish and keep a watchful eye on performance, making tweaks all the time.

100% In-House Employees

Our entire team is located in the United States, primarily in Knoxville, Tennessee. While part of our team works remotely, everyone is a full-time employee. Other agencies rely heavily on contractors and interns to handle a significant portion of their workload while charging clients exorbitant rates.

18 Years In Business

For almost two decades, our business has stood the test of time, delivering measurable results and trusted expertise in web design and digital marketing to thousands of clients worldwide. Our track record reflects our commitment to customer service, adaptability, and our lasting relationships with our clients.

Client-Driven Success

So many of our web design and digital marketing clients have consistently rated us among the best in the business. We measure our success by the positive feedback and heartfelt reviews we receive from our clients. We’re not just your provider, we’re your ally, and the champions of your success.

Clear Billing & Pricing

We believe in straightforward, fixed pricing. You can choose from three different website packages, each with features designed to suit different needs. As for our marketing services, we keep it transparent by having advertising platforms bill you directly for ad spend. You’ll only be charged by us for our management fees, ensuring that you always have a clear understanding of where your budget is going.

Dedicated Specialist

When you choose us, you’re assigned a dedicated point of contact to ensure personalized service. If it’s a website you need, you’ll work directly with the skilled web developer building your site from start to finish. For marketing, you’ll have a committed strategist who not only understands your business but also actively manages your campaigns, maintaining regular monthly communication.

Ownership Guarantee

When you hire us, what we create for you is yours, plain and simple. If we create your website for a one-time fee, it’s yours to host wherever you want, no strings attached. When we handle your marketing, you’ll own all of your accounts and data, provided you don’t cancel before the completion of the initial term. We’re here to elevate you, not to tie you down.

Leech-Free Growth

Unlike other agencies that penalize you for growing your ad budget with tiered or percentage-based fees, our flat rate pricing ensures that all of your ad spend goes directly toward your advertising. Say goodbye to the budget-siphoning tactics of traditional agencies and hello to transparent, effective marketing that genuinely works in your favor.

Fair Terms

Unlike competitors who lock you into auto-renewing contracts or charge setup fees to cover the cost of taking on a new client, we believe in mutual fairness. Our marketing services require only a single 6-month term, after which you’re free to cancel anytime. You can even cancel before the term ends if you’re not getting results and you don’t want to keep our work.

No Sales Gimmicks

Other agencies like to utilize “value-based pricing,” which is a fancy way of charging you as much as they feel the ROI could hypothetically be worth to you. So, the more you can pay, the more you will, even for identical services. Another deceptive tactic is to bundle multiple “creative” extras like brochures, business cards, and letterhead with a website, inflating the perceived value of what you’re getting. Oftentimes, this is just making up for a mediocre website.

Comprehensive Support

We provide 24/7 web hosting support, addressing any problems you experience with your website or domain. During regular business hours, we offer website changes and WordPress maintenance through our VIP plan. Want to make changes yourself? We also teach monthly classes on how to alter your website, known as SlamCamp.

Powerful Web Hosting

Most agencies and IT companies utilize crowded reseller accounts or cheap virtual servers for client hosting. We manage our own high-performance physical servers in multiple datacenters. By licensing Litespeed and LSCache for our WordPress clients, we boost performance with top-tier commercial caching. Our servers also run CloudLinux, which isolates client resources, avoiding downtime caused by noisy neighbors. Plus, we prioritize your data’s safety and integrity with local replication and offsite backups.

Unique Technology

We’ve crafted much of the software we use, making us exceptionally efficient. Having started as a technology company with a proprietary hosting platform, building software solutions to our own problems is part of our DNA.

Our History

Proven Digital Marketing Strategies
in 15 Years Business


Humble Beginnings

Slamdot launches as an innovative web hosting provider with a proprietary control panel that simplifies and unifies domain management.


Knoxville Headquarters

We relocate our HQ to downtown Knoxville in the Old City and begin offering simple, affordable website packages for small businesses, hosted on our platform.


Expanded Offices

We quickly grew and needed a better space for ourselves and our clients, which brought us to our second office space at 133 S. Gay Street, complete with a back deck for some grilling out!


We Moved Again

With our eyes on expansion, we moved to our third office space at 119 S. Gay Street, with a 2nd lower level, and a 3rd basement level with a trap door in the floor!

First Haunted Open House

We hosted some awesome events at our new space, including our first Halloween-themed networking, dubbed the Haunted Open House, which was the first of many to come!

Scare in the Square

Slamdot co-produced Knoxville's first-ever Halloween festival downtown, "Scare in the Square," on Market Square, attracting thousands from the Knoxville community.


Entrepreneur of the Year

The Slamdot Store

We moved to our fourth space at 108 S. Gay Street, where we launched the Slamdot Store retail website store concept with walk-in service and first-of-its-kind SlamCamp workshops, featured in the local Knoxville News-Sentinel at the time.

Nightmare on Gay Street Halloween Festival

After a successful Scare in the Square event the year before, and the reopening of the new 100 block of Gay Street, we produced "Nightmare on Gay Street," another citywide Halloween Festival, another big hit with the Knoxville community.


Slamdot Cube

The real life version of our logo icon comes to life on wheels, as the Slamdot Cube, our branded service vehicle, hits the streets with a custom wrap, plus blue & green underbody lighting, for daily commutes, and a hit at local parades!

40 Under 40

Sean is recipient of Greater Knoxville Business Journal’s 40 under 40 award!


Slamdot "Code Monkey" Mascot

The lovable and infamous Slamdot "Code Monkey" mascot is born, and our miniature stuffed magnetic monkeys start to take Knoxville by storm.


Our Move to West Knoxville

Moved to first office space in west Knoxville at 2053 Thunderhead Road in Northshore Village. Leaving downtown was bittersweet.

Launch of Digital Marketing

We started offering digital marketing services directly, including SEO, Google Ad management, and social media, with transparent pricing and a focus on results, as well as two elements of our core DNA, customer service and communication.


We Bought Our Own Space

Moved to our sixth office space at 2099 Thunderhead Road, Suite 106. The entire space was gutted and remodeled to suit exactly how we work.


UpCity National Award

We were honored to win our first UpCity National Excellence Award, as well as the local award, as the only agency in Knoxville to win the national honor.


Slamdot is a national agency, and 3rd Year in a Row UpCity Award Winner
