Ben Miller founded ClutchSEM in the Spring of 2009 with a mission; to provide potential clients with a professional custom web design and online marketing service. Intrinsically, Ben is committed to surpassing client expectations and quickly built a reputation as a valuable resource to small and medium sized businesses both locally and nationally. Possibly Ben’s great asset is his ability to translate business objectives into technical requirements and communicate with clients in business terms.
Ben was born in Windsor, Colorado and began his web design career at a very early age, learning a multitude of programming languages, and quickly realizing his zest for web technology. In a very short time, Ben was contracted by a small startup company, struggling to make a profit through their online product. In less than 6 months, Ben had implemented numerous online business strategies that produced profits at over 1000% of the original business plan. Ben’s technical expertise encompasses numerous online disciplines, from SEO/SEM strategies, affiliate programs, web design and implementation, and custom content management systems.
Ben currently resides in Grand Junction, Colorado but travels frequently for both business and pleasure.

I recently contracted with ClutchSEM to provide a major overhaul of my website. Ray and Ben were very easy to work with and were able to accomplish my goals within a very tight schedule and budget. I have since used the site administrative tools and find it very easy to work with, even for a technophobe like myself. I recommend ClutchSEM without reservation.Brent Kendle, AIA, LEED AP
I am pleased to recommend Ray Miller and his team at Clutch Search Engine Marketing in the design and execution/implementation of your website. They did a fantastic job on our Candelaria Design website, were easy to work with and completed the project within our schedule and established budget.We found they listened to our thoughts and offered insight and practical suggestions to enhance our initial ideas. We have also found their support thus far to be very prompt and efficient. We have worked with a number of website designers as have our clients, and friends and we have heard some pretty horrible stories about lack of service, over budget, over complicating the process, etc., but we experienced none of that with Clutch.Candelaria Design looks forward to our continued web design service with Ray Miller and Clutch Search Engine Marketing.Mark Candelaria
I highly recommend CLUTCHSEM.My partner and I are delighted with the website they have created for us.Further, their coaching and support has been superlative.Our web presence and marketing has been brought to a new level.Ron Brissette
Although I was happy with the aesthetics of my current website, I was frustrated with the lack of control I had over the display of content thereof. As a professional architect, I’m continually implementing new ideas and concepts in my work. As these projects come to completion, it’s imperative to keep prospects informed of my latest work, and not having the ability to update my website when I want was a hindrance to my business. Clutch’s solution was perfect. They maintained the aesthetics of my current site, while implementing a Content Management System that I found to be very easy to use. Now, not only are my projects up to date, but also my awards and publications; imperative knowledge for any prospective client. ClutchSEM provided me exactly what I was looking for.Nick Tsontakis
The site Clutch created has helped me build my business in a number of ways. In particular, azwriter.com has saved many hours by allowing me to send inquirers to it rather than having me send my work to them. An enormously helpful addition to my one-man company.David Brown
We appreciate the professional and prompt service you provided for us in the development of ERCarizona.com. This project was complicated by our number of job pictures available - and the fact that we sent these to you in "batches" - some poorly identified. At any rate, thanks for your patience and collaboration as we jointly worked through this process. Anyone else would have charged us a small fortune! The website provides us with an on-line identity and is an excellent asset to establishing our credibility as a professional business.Thanks also for the "out-of-scope" help in setting up our email accounts and downloading/installing the software on the machines. XXXXXXX was supposed to do this, but we know larger companies often fail to complete the details expected by a customer. You and Ben saved us countless hours in trying to work with XXXXXXX to finish the items they promised to make our system operational. Their personnel may be individually competent, but totally lack the customer service and attention to detail that you provided.Will Orr
Thank you for all the hard work with the redesign and launch of our new website. We knew we needed to upgrade the old site and we were dreading it. You guys made it easy by delivering on time and on budget, providing guidance throughout the process and ultimately a worry/stress free implementation. The website is just great, and is a far better representation of our quality products and services here at the Louvershop. To date, the website has helped us increase sales by over 40% over last year. In addition, the quality of leads being generated through your activities have almost doubled our close rates! Our design consultants couldn’t be happier. Thanks again to the whole Clutch team.Dawn Barron
Being a dynamic start up, Wine Comet needed a technical partner that understood our specific needs. Working with Ben and Ray has been a refreshing change. From the beginning, they took the time to understand our concepts, culture and people. Clutch delivered on time, with the right technical solutions and within budget!Thanks for helping us Blast Off!Fred Weih
We love the website that Clutch built for us at Zulu CaffeVicki Beaudoin
In ten years of dealing with internet marketing and SEO/SEM firms, this is the first time we have achieved quantifiable results. You guys hit a home run here with us. Thanks!Mike Smith
Clutch Media has been the best Internet company and website design for the money that I have ever come across!” We do a lot of business, and have done email blast, direct mail, and getting people to our website is important for information they need and want. So we have to have quality work, dependability, and support almost 24 hours a day. Ben and Ray have been more than gracious with their time, teaching us how to do things, helping us make changes, getting to know our business and being available thru phone and email. We appreciate their support, the quality design and work, and how close they worked with us to get a finished product and a product that is ongoing with them for many years to come. Thank you guys for your help in making our business more successful and our customers very happy! Great Job Guys!Ronnie Weir
As an established commercial builder trying to grow as the Phoenix construction market recovers, I knew we needed a better web presence for lead generation and, even more so, to establish credentials and capabilities. As commercial customers start to do projects again they are relying heavily on internet searches to find which builders are still around and what their capabilities are. I realized that this is a critical time to capture this growing internet activity to get out ahead of my competitors. I needed a service that could maximize my ability to capture the new traffic and provide the best online showcase for my accomplishments and capabilities. ClutchSEM far exceeded my expectations in this regard. They delivered a website I’m proud to own, and one I can easily manage myself. Best of all, this new and improved website has become my primary source of new business since its debut. My new customers frequently comment that my company is one of the first to show in the search results and clearly shows how my services meet their needs. I attribute this to ClutchSEM’s expertise in managing web traffic and their web design vision.I highly recommend ClutchSEM!Matt Brady
I highly recommend ClutchSEM! I was apprehensive about updating my website, but knew it was time. Clutch came highly recommended and after the first interview with Ray and Ben, I felt very comfortable with the decision to move forward. The process was extremely easy and Clutch kept us informed throughout. The implementation was quick, cost effective and training was a breeze. I love the ability to control every aspect of my site now, and I don’t need to co-ordinate changes through 3rd party developers saving me time, money and headache!! Thanks Ben and Ray!Craig Wickersham
