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 was referred to Gretchen by a friend whose website I admired and whose opinion I trusted. When I asked her why she worked with Gretchen, she said: ‘I wanted to spend more time writing for my blog, not on having to maintain or manage my blog.’ This statement resonated with me because writing is my thing. Building websites is not.
“When I worked with Gretchen, she didn’t expect me to know the technical stuff. She asked about what I was trying to accomplish, the feel I wanted for my site, and how I wanted people to interface with my site. She guided me when the design, font, and color options became overwhelming. Even now that my site(s) are up, she maintains available for questions. I can’t imagine a better business partner.”
“It eases my mind tremendously knowing I have Gretchen in my corner when I need quick help with the technical side of my blog. This type of work stresses me out; I’m so glad that I don’t need to stress anymore knowing that Gretchen is only a short email away.”
-Julia Konya, Cuckoo 4 Design
“I have absolutely no computer technology and depended upon Gretchen Louise to take my weak instructions and turn them into gold, which she did with aplomb and dexterity.
“Thistle Cove Farm’s new design has gained many compliments with the most heartfelt, mine. Gretchen Louise, thank you.”
-Sandra Bennett, Thistle Cove Farm
“Gretchen’s advice and services over the past several years are the primary reason I have such a sleek and well-running website. As an author, I want to focus on my writing, not try to maintain website intricacies (e.g., security, faulty-plug-ins, updates, etc.). For which, Gretchen has proven invaluable. She responds quickly, has a wealth of knowledge, and is so far 100% for 100% on resolving my problems. I would absolutely recommend Gretchen and her services to anyone who needs an internet presence.”
-Jake Teeny, Everyday Psychophilosophy
“Gretchen is an absolute Godsend. Her technical proficiency is superb and she is super responsive to questions, but what I think I appreciate most is her demeanor and professionalism. My blog is small, and the transition to WordPress wasn’t a huge job (in my mind), but Gretchen always makes me feel as though I have her undivided attention. She is a joy to work with.”
“If speed dial was still a thing, Gretchen would totally be on mine! There’s a lot I can do on my own for my website…but Gretchen can do so much more! She’s my go-to person for CSS changes and other coding I just don’t want to or can’t get into to customize my blog themes. She’s quick to respond to my S.O.S. emails and is always willing to look for an answer to my question if she doesn’t know it already. I don’t know what I’d do without her at this point!”
-Shannon Acheson, Home Made Lovely
”When it comes to getting my website for my blog set up, asking Gretchen to help me was the best decision I could have made! I started off thinking I could handle the technical side on my own. Once I got started, however, I quickly realized I was in way over my head! Even though I was attempting to follow a wonderful and easy to use ‘how to guide,’ the whole process was much more complex than I ever could have imagined.
“Finding Gretchen was a huge blessing! She made the process simple and fun, which left me lots of time to focus on the content of my blog, rather than the technical side of things. She is easy to work with, her prices are super reasonable, and she is always available to answer questions and make changes. More than that, I never felt like I was bothering her, and always felt that she genuinely cared about making things the way I envisioned, and truly wanted me to succeed! I highly recommend her and her work–you won’t be disappointed!”
-Karin, Cultivating Us
“I’m really glad I found Gretchen. I appreciate so much all the work she’s doing to help me make my website as functional, user-friendly and effective as it can be.
“She’s the best ever website fairy godmother!”
“Gretchen has walked me through countless computer glitches, questions, and problems – all while keeping her cool and sense of humor.
“She has encouraged me as she took me step by step through the publishing of my first book: from editing the manuscript to recommending illustrators, connecting me with pre-readers, and finding someone to do formatting and printing. I literally could not have done it without her.
“I so appreciate Gretchen’s professionalism, her knowledge, and her perseverance. I highly recommend Gretchen’s services, whether you are very techno-savvy or low-tech like me.”
“I do not have time to study the intricacies of website development and maintenance. At first, I was hesitant to work with someone online, but I knew that Gretchen was referred by an excellent source. From the beginning, Gretchen was very patient with me and knew exactly what to do to update my site. When I ran into an obstacle in updating the testimonial section of my website, Gretchen was able to help me within hours. And, most recently, Gretchen helped me add security to my site through an SSL certificate. During each step, Gretchen explained to me what she steps she took to update each part of the site. It is so valuable to know Gretchen and to work with her. I would highly recommend her for all of your website needs.”
“I was having trouble with the mobile version of my website: my maps and tables were not sizing properly on small screens. Gretchen fixed my problem in no time, saving me untold hours of trying to figure it out myself. She even sent me resources in case I encounter similar problems in the future. Gretchen was such a joy to work with. I highly recommend reaching out to her for any technical issues you encounter.”
-Heather Gearan, Poker Pilgrims
“Just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should. I built two previous WordPress websites before, but this time I just didn’t want to do it. I’m so glad I didn’t build my current website. There was so much I didn’t know about various plugins and website security.
“I worked with Gretchen Louise to build my website and I love it. Gretchen will remain my go to person for all things website when I need her expertise.”
