We continue to push the boundaries of technology to the benefit of animal breeders marketing.
13. Our websites are a product of people invested in your own industry.
Hired Hand came to exist in the Whitetail Deer Industry through a series of coincidences and personal connections. We couldn’t be happier with the path that has led us here. Although our partners have backgrounds in livestock they have loved every moment of learning about Whitetails through attending events, touring deer breeding facilities and high fence operations and meeting with breeders. They truly feel like they belong here and regularly donate back to various auctions and special events. And, our own Brittney Klein was once a ranch manger for one of the top breeding operations. We couldn’t be happier to have Brittney on our team and we encourage you to visit with her at the Top 30 this week.
12. Don’t take our word, take hers:
"For the last 5 years, Blue Creek Whitetails has depended on Hired Hand Software for our website and marketing. It's easy to navigate and the traffic we have is unbelievable. Molly Clubb, Jaymie Feldmann, and Brittney Renee Klein are truly the best people to work with and ALWAYS available and extremely helpful. I couldn't imagine using any other software and advertising company for Blue Creek Whitetails. HHS is simply the best." - Holly Vesely Korenek, Blue Creek Whitetails
11. We’ll do the hard work for you.
Hate taking photos? Don’t like gathering content or data? Have no interest in learning about SEO or PPC to maximize your ROI? No problem. We’ll come to your ranch, photograph your herd, enter your data and do all of the hard work for you, just to get you started with an amazing Hired Hand powered website!
10. It’s a super functional, very effective online brochure.
Any website is essentially an online brochure. Would you print a brochure about your best buck without photos of him or his important pedigreed animals? Then why would you want a website that didn’t show off his lineage with clickable photos, links and more? Our websites make it easy for visitors to click their way through the most informative, best looking, interactive brochures there are.
9. Professional Email Address
Yes, we know there are other ways to do this, but by having a Hired Hand website you can have your own email email@example.com. It is more professional and easier to remember. I know you love your firstname.lastname@example.org , but it doesn’t really resonate with customers.
8. Don’t take our word for it. We have hundreds of more customers standing behind us!
"Molly and her team are beyond excellent to work with and easy to get things done. The amount of traffic I am getting is amazing. The feedback and tools they provide are that of a service TEN times what I am paying. The value vs results are unmatched in anything I have seen. Top shelf." - Mike Wood, Madera Bonita Ranch
7. Your pedigrees build themselves!
Wait..What?! That’s right! When you enter in a new fawn you simply choose the buck and doe from a drop down and like magic the pedigree is built complete with interactive links and photos. You don’t have to do any additional work to build a page for your new animals displaying on your website! How cool is that. Talk about minimalizing your work. We know you’d rather be out enjoying your deer, not working on the computer.
6. Your competition has a website.
Whether we like to admit it or not, all deer breeders are competing for the same dollars. Best your competition by having a state of the art website that meets the end users needs best AND is easy for you to update. It’s a win-win.
5. Built in SEO.
Every Hired Hand website offers built in SEO. No need to pay companies for additional services to get you at the top of the list. We show you how to take control of your Google fate and easily maintain your SEO on an animal or page level basis on your own.
4. Update your site from anywhere, anytime.
In this age of being on the go it’s nice to be able to make updates on your schedule. Snap a photo in the pen last week and have it on your phone? Why not upload it to your site while you’re waiting for your doctor’s appointment. We make it easy. Hired Hand websites also allow multiple users to update your site with full or limited access.
3. We can convert your current website.

2. Another happy customer speaks for us:
"My thanks to Brittney, Jaymie, and Molly. They are first class all the way. You will not find an easier website to build and update in this industry. Literally you can take pics of all your bucks in the afternoon and update on your website within minutes, and do it all yourself even if you have no computer skills. This is a very well thought out website design and a great group of folks to work with." - Bill Holdman, Elam Woods Whitetails
