Ladybugz Interactive Agency is ranked one of the top advertising, marketing, and communications firms in Worcester by Worcester Business Journal in its Book of Lists. Ranked by number of local staff and gross billing, Ladybugz secured the No. 4 spot among many other impressive agencies throughout Worcester County.
While the young and emerging Worcester-area-based web design agency has only been on the scene for a little over two years, its deep roots, local ties, and impact within Worcester County undoubtedly helped it land this notable mention.
“We try to keep everything at Ladybugz as local as possible, from the work we do to the talent we hire to ensure we are uplifting our community whenever and wherever we can,” says Ladybugz CEO Lysa Miller.
Top Creative Web Design and Marketing Talent Kept Local
The majority of Ladybugz staff are from Worcester County or surrounding towns and cities. From sales and operations to web services and design, Ladybugz’s local staff keeps a finger on the pulse for all things digital.
Here are just a few of Ladybugz’s rockstars:
Billie Kenyon – COO, Sales Operations + Business Success
At the helm of all things, operations is a Worcester native and professional powerhouse who infuses her passion for helping people into everything she does. At Ladybugz, Billie will do whatever it takes to help clients succeed and achieve their goals during the website creation or redesign process. When she’s not helping her clients build amazing websites, she’s in the local Worcester community working hard to build a brighter future for the Worcester Jewish Community Center (JCC) in her newly appointed role as President of the Board. In 2022, Billie was named a 40 under 40 by Worcester Business Journal and was a recent graduate of Leadership Worcester’s class.

Her knack for authentic brand storytelling wins her clients over again and again as she leads them on a creative and agile design journey at Ladybugz. Her love for art, design, and custom photography takes her brandwork to the next level as she is a local star who is beloved by many.
Pushing Local Boston and Central Massachusetts Business Forward
In addition to their local staff, Ladybugz works with many local businesses on the creation and redesign of their websites and digital marketing. Below are just a few of the many local businesses Ladybugz has worked with over the years.
Medi Tresse Worcester
Medi Tresse in Worcester is a local medical care practice that specializes in women’s hair loss treatment. They approached the Ladybugz team for help redesigning their website to increase website traffic and convert visitors to patients, especially in targeted geographic locations where they were expanding their business. Medi Tresse’s website and digital strategies were falling short as they continued to grow, so our team developed a soundproof strategy to raise organic rankings and attract patients to new locations while refining the site’s technical elements and user experience.
Medi Tresse needed a fully customized local SEO strategy for their multiple locations. With such a niche target audience, our team of marketers got straight to work. Ladybugz loves working with local businesses and local SEO as it is their specialty. Medi Tresse has experienced many successes since the redesign of their website. With their new website design and continued content creation, keywords have increased by 150 percent and organic keywords have increased by 55 percent—translating to a 70 percent increase in booked appointments from organic traffic. The site’s overall health score rose to 98.
Assabet Community Education
Assabet Community Education in Marlborough is a community education center in Massachusetts that provides adults and children with opportunities for learning and building job skills. Each of their core programs originally had its website so they enlisted the help of the Ladybugz team to combine these four websites into one central and local presence.
Combining four sites into one community education website was no small feat and the ultimate challenge was to give four entirely different sites the same look, feel, and tone. The result was a modern, organized, and integrated new website under a new brand that ranks in Google searches. Their website is now simple to navigate and makes it easy for future students to sign up for courses.
Hudson Business Association
The Hudson Business Association< is made up of local business owners seeking to connect and the community. They needed a newly redesigned website that could attract and promote members and looked to Hudson-based Ladybugz Interactive for help. Their previous website was painful to navigate and impossible to update. They needed a refresh with a clean, modernized design with accessibility in mind because they had over 60+ business association members that they needed to promote and feature.
The Ladybugz team developed and modernized many aspects of their new website and enhanced their design. Hudson Business Association was pleased with their new custom website features and integrations that drastically improved site usability and visibility.
Giving back in Worcester County and Central Massachusetts
Whenever possible, Ladybugz is always looking to give back to the community that has embraced them with open arms. So, when Ladybugz CEO Lysa challenged her clients, partners, and friends to raise money for the Fresh Start Furniture Bank in Hudson—a nonprofit she loves and has partnered with for many years—her circle gladly answered the call. Together, they donated more than $3,000 and had a private donor who matched the amount. Fresh Start Furniture Bank is an extraordinary local nonprofit that collects furniture and home goods donations and then distributes them, for free, to people in need.
Award Winning Local Website Design and Digital Marketing in the Worcester area
Ladybugz Interactive was named one of the top web design firms and SEO agencies in New England on Agency Spotter’s Top 50 Web Design Agencies List. Even as a local and emerging digital agency, the many local awards and nominations on Clutch.co, the Manifest.com among other agency list awards, further prove Ladybugz’s commitment to empowering and uplifting local businesses and their community. Ladybugz wears these accolades with pride, as they stand behind their work, talent, and mission to give back.
