I had contracted with Clifton Design Group to develop our website for the South Florida Artists Association. Susan did an excellent job during the consultation phase, listening to my requirements and implementing the ideas into the website. I specifically wanted a site that was easy for me to upload content, and with Word Press; Clifton Design Group provided that ability. They also assisted us with logo and brand development, which makes us recognizable in all of our promotional materials. I constantly get compliments on our business cards, brochures and website. I would highly recommend this company!
When Susan redesigned everythingmacintosh.com, she took it from a very basic, ugly HTML site to a slick, professional looking WordPress site. It was suddenly easy to add new news items and tech notes, and the combination of logical menus and the find field makes it simple for my visitors to find exactly the information they need. Just that would have satisfied me…but Susan tweaked the pages to get great positioning in the search engines, and linked the news items on my site to my company’s Facebook page. Before Susan’s work, I was averaging 35-50 hits per day. Now, after a few months, I’m averaging 350 hits per day, with some days at nearly 400. Some of my pages now come up at the top of the search engine listings, and I’m actively receiving blog posts from people around the world who need help. I’ve gone from virtually invisible to a serious source of computer tech support, not only in my own area of North Carolina, but internationally. Canada, Mexico, the UK, and even Australia. I couldn’t be happier.
I’m writing to thank you for a job incredibly well done. I’ve had the displeasure of developing sites for both my own business pursuits and the businesses of my friends and colleagues. Throughout all of those projects, I’ve never had a positive experience with a web designer—until now. For me, web design isn’t made up of just good quality, intuitive design, which makes for a quality user experience. Good design starts with qualifying the client properly, quoting the client properly, requiring just enough information to get started, coming up with some ideas, constantly interacting with the client, and working as partners, in a timely manger, to create a finished product, which makes everyone happy. Your work on our project was first class in every aspect. We’re so happy we found you, and as I’ve mentioned, I will actively recommend your services to others. If you ever need a formal reference please don’t hesitate to give my number to prospective clients. I’ll make myself available for you.
