Website Design

27 years of forward thinking

GroupM7 opened in 1995.

That’s before Google organized the internet… or social media connected distant friends.

Most companies don’t last that long. Their methods become outdated. Their products, irrelevant. We’re around today because we foster a culture of forward thinking which helps us thrive in the ever changing world of online business.

As our client, you’ll work with a web design company that’s been around long enough to build thousands of websites and knows how to do it right. Over the years, we haven’t just improved our craft. We’ve improved YOUR experience…

You get:

  • A website that’s easy to use and hard to mess up
  • An agency that handles requests faster than most
  • And a team of experts who know how to grow your business

The Group

GroupM7 was founded by the late Michael Mahfood (Mahfood is where we got the "M" in M7).

Today, Matthew Mahfood is the President of the company. Nadine Antunez is Vice President and runs daily operations.

Keep scrolling to meet our whole team...

The M in M7 stands for Mahfood. The 7 represents Michael, his wife Suzanne and their five children. That genuinely personal touch has been prevalent in the GroupM7 business model ever since. We’re a humble Group, but we take pride in the tremendous accomplishments we’ve shared with our clients.

The team at GroupM7 is made up of some of the most talented and skilled people in the web design and marketing industries and is dedicated to giving you exactly what you're looking for in a versatile business website. With every project we tackle, we provide a service of immense value to our clients by creating for them a unique web platform that allows them to reach their goals and promotes the growth of their businesses.

Over the years, the Group has added a range of additional services to enhance our offerings. We started hosting websites on our own servers in 2010. And now, after we design their websites from scratch, we help our clients craft winning strategies through social media, drone photography, and print marketing to draw in more business than ever.

If you’re a business owner, you know you need a website. If you already have a website, but feel it's lacking compared to your competitors, you know it’s time for an overhaul.

There’s a reason we sit comfortably atop a flawless 5-star rating from real clients. Find out what you’ve been missing out on. Contact GroupM7 today to let us show you the potential fruits a new website can bear for your business.

Content Creation and SEO


Ken Reid

Marketing Director

Ken Reid

Marketing Director

I use empathy, clarity, & bullet points to make the world a better place, one piece of content at a time.

Empathy because life is mind-blowing when it's seen from another perspective

Clarity because everyone deserves to understand the world they live in

Bullet points because nobody has the time or energy to climb a mountain of words

My name is Ken Reid.

I'm a conversion-obsessed content creator who writes story-infused copy that gets results.

I've written copy for more than 200 websites... plus blog posts, video scripts, radio ads, email campaigns, & other stuff.

If you Google the right keywords, you'll find about 94% of the web copy I write on SERPs page 1.

I built a marketing funnel that generated 2,500 email subscribers with one blog post without spending a dime on ads.

I created a 5-part email campaign that doubled affiliate sales in 6 weeks.

Every messaging strategy I develop & every piece of content I create is an arrow aimed at a specific target. And, (not to brag, but), I'm a pretty good shot.

Melissa Salmon

Content Writer

I published my first book (“Patty the Potato”) in 3rd grade. That’s when I fell in love with writing and discovered the power of the written word.

I taught reading and writing for 16 years before I stepped into the professional writing world. Today, I get to help businesses grow and thrive with clear, concise messaging.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Communications and a Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies from the University of Texas at Tyler, and a Masters of Educational Administration from Lamar University in Beaumont, TX.

Most of the year, I work for GroupM7 from my RV. My husband, Brad, and I, along with our fur-baby, Grayson, travel the country year-round. I have a custom office in my RV, but my best work comes while sitting along the fresh Florida springs, in the rolling hills of Alabama, or in the crisp clean air of the Northwoods of Wisconsin.
