what my clients are saying...
I've served over 300 clients since I began developing WordPress websites in 2011. While some of my jobs encompass the development of an entire website, many others are custom coding on established sites. Here is a selection of feedback from clients of all project types.
“I searched for months to find someone skilled and available to help me update my blog framework and theme and implement a new design. Gretchen was so organized, responsive, patient, and knowledgeable. She exceeded my expectations on all fronts. I worked as a communications project manager for years and hired web designers, developers, graphic artists and writers. I will and would hire Gretchen again and recommend her HIGHLY to anyone who needs support with their food blog or other website. She is a fantastic resource.”
-Beth Lee, OMG! Yummy
“Working with Gretchen has been a dream! I was well overdue for a blog update and had an idea of what I wanted with a few ideas listed. She exceeded my expectations as well as being incredibly prompt, understanding and immensely knowledgeable in her craft. My site is now clean, much more user friendly and, as quoted from a few colleagues, my blog is now, ‘gorgeous’ and ‘wow’!”
“Gretchen will forever be my go-to person. Her professionalism and thoughtfulness have skyrocketed my business and I can’t recommend her services enough.”
-Samantha Ferraro, The Little Ferraro Kitchen
“My partnership with Gretchen gives me peace of mind. When a technical glitch occurs, I can rely on Gretchen to take care of it, thus allowing me to focus on what I do best. In business, a great part of our success has to do with the quality of our partners. I found my technical one and her name is Gretchen Louise and now, the sky is my limit!”
-Denise Russell, Pieced Brain
“If you’ve been searching for some help with the tech issues and design of your website, your search is over! Whenever I have issues with my website, Gretchen is always willing to help and advise. I appreciate that she is patient, affordable, kind, and extremely easy to work with. Thank you, Gretchen!”
“I cannot recommend Gretchen highly enough. Re-designing my website was not only beyond my skill set, but intimidating to me. I didn’t know exactly what I wanted or even where to begin in designing a professional author site, but Gretchen made the entire process a breeze. She was flexible, creative and expedient while still being patient with my schedule, questions and concerns. If site design and setup feels a little over your head or you need someone to come along side you to improve your online space, Gretchen is exactly who you want to work with.”
“I’m embarrassed to admit that I had been ignoring important changes that needed to happen on my website for seven months! I wasn’t sure how to handle the changes and was trying my best to find the time to learn. Finally, a friend recommended Gretchen to me and I’m so thankful she did!
“Gretchen was patient with me and allowed me to be as picky as I wanted to be (one of my many talents). She had no shortage of great recommendations for improving my site and was able to do in two or three hours what would have taken me days. I didn’t just blindly pass those tasks off to her, though. Instead, she was able to explain what was going to happen and checked in often.
“When everything was done, things weren’t just ‘magically’ changed – I knew exactly what had happened and I feel like I now have a better understanding of my website.”
-Meagan Fikes, Eat Something Delicious
“It had been 8 years since I’d last done a redesign on my WordPress website and it desperately needed a refresh! I had issues with site speed, structure, and overall design. I also needed a good audit of my plugins, and backup and security settings.
“When I found Gretchen’s website, she sounded like exactly who I needed! I was certain it would take days for her to accomplish everything on my wish list. But amazingly, she was able to completely transform the look and function of my site in just a few hours. The entire process was incredibly efficient and her services were worth every penny. I am so pleased with the vast improvements to my site and, as a bonus, she even taught me how to do a lot of things myself in the future.
“I would absolutely recommend her to anyone without hesitation. Thanks a million, Gretchen!”
“I knew I needed a website but the thought of trying to take on the project myself was beyond overwhelming! Gretchen was incredible to work with. She laid out what needed to be done start to finish. She then educated me throughout the process as well as implementing my website. Her combination of knowledge, honesty, and professionalism is rare in the world today. I would recommend her to anyone in need of website design and implementation!”
“Gretchen Louise is a life-saver! She transformed my sad, outdated site with speed, efficiency, and skill. The best part? Gretchen Louise is one of the kindest people I know, patiently translating tech-speak into easy-to-make decisions that made my updated site top-notch.”
“I strongly recommend anyone in need of a website to work with Gretchen. She is highly professional, knowledgeable, skilled, helpful, punctual, enjoyable to work with, and consistently exceeded all of my expectations while delivering top of the line results.”
-Erin Bishop, Whatever Girls
“Gretchen is a rock star!
“Seriously, I had no idea what I was doing when I started my website and blog. And honestly, without her, I can’t imagine where I’d be. I just like to write. Thank God, Gretchen knows how to do all the other stuff because there is a lot of it.
“Since I’m not working, her rate scared me at first, but she’s so fast that it doesn’t seem like that’s what I’m paying her. And twice recently, I had weird things happen on a Saturday night. I emailed knowing her office hours do not include weekends, but both times she was right there and got the issues fixed in no time.
“She goes over and above. So, I’d recommend her to everyone, but selfishly, I don’t want her to get too busy.”
“Gretchen Louise recently set up a new website for my artwork. Navigating the many options and technicalities was beyond my experience. Gretchen was professional, efficient, and patient with my lack knowledge. Her quick response to my many questions was most gratifying and helpful. I will continue use Gretchen’s services and highly recommend them.”
