Who We Are

The ZingMap Story

In 2012, Make Tech Better, Inc. was created to serve a variety of clients needing technology services, from Fortune 500 companies requiring SalesForce implementation to octogenarians wanting to learn how to order airline tickets online. Since then, Make Tech Better has concentrated on two practice areas—SalesForce and web design & development.

By mid-2013, Make Tech Better’s web design and development practice had begun to flourish. With this success came greater focus on digital marketing consultation. While there are many web design and development firms in the Tri-State area, not many spotlight best marketing practices. Playing to its strength, Make Tech Better began to phase out its SalesForce and other practice areas in favor of digital marketing strategy for companies and organizations with as few as three full-time employees.

By 2015, Make Tech Better was ready to give rise to a new division: ZingMap—a digital marketing agency. Today, our primary focus is on superior design, development, marketing techniques, social media approaches, and local SEO.

ZingMap is a proud member of BNI Business Boosters in Briarcliff, New York, as well as the Hudson Valley Gateway Chamber of Commerce.

Erik Contzius

President & CEO

Erik Contzius started professional life not in the business world, but in the synagogue as a full-time pulpit cantor. After a distinguished career of over 18 years, Erik wanted more time to be with family. His love of sacred music was matched with his love of art, design, and technology. He parlayed these other loves into creating Make Tech Better, Inc. Since 2012, Erik has built and designed websites for a variety of clients, as well as advising businesses on effective online marketing techniques. When not working with ZingMap, Erik is singing with the Westchester Chordsmen and his barbershop quartet, 29 Seconds. Erik and his family reside in Peekskill, New York.

I have experienced first hand Erik's professionalism with digital media. Erik has designed and published newsletters for our networking group as well as developed a very engaging web site. He is very helpful with all of the businesses in our group and has offered us suggestions on our digital marketing. I know he has done a number of web sites for our members and they are very eye catching, mobile friendly, and engaging. I would definitely recommend Erik for anyone who wants to improve their digital marketing and digital presence.

Our international organization, Women Cantor's Network, hired Erik to totally revamp our outdated website. His price was competitive and his experience was invaluable. He totally changed the look of our website to bring it into the 21st Century. He is responsive to our questions, concerns and needs and responds quickly to us. He is an excellent problem solver and we are the beneficiaries of his years of experience in the field. We are delighted with him and with his work!
