A few of my client testimonials from clients over the last 10 years…
I wanted to show up as 100% me on a website. Most website templates didn’t fit my personality and I didn’t know how to show case all of the work that I have done in a clear and concise way for my community.
You show up as you online and I value authenticity. I loved that we even talked about how you show up to work in a t-shirt because most of the time I am in running clothes! It made me feel like I wasn’t going to forced into a very girly website. I wanted my website to look professional, clean, clear, and show case all the work I have done.
You also take your work very seriously. It shows in your online presence that you’re not here to just make pretty websites, you’re here to help new online business owners (like me) create an online presence where others can find purposeful transformations.
My biggest fear before hiring was that my website was going to be very generic and very “dietitian-y.” I love my profession, but I know I offer much more to my clients than nutrition and I was afraid those other values weren’t going to be highlighted as much. It didn’t come true. My brand and business were elevated because of the changes we made and shows that all the work I do in my running community is more than nutrition-focused.
Our biggest fear was that we would be overwhelmed, under-helped, and that the design process would drag on for months. None of that happened and we were blown away with your clarity and responsiveness.
Our friend highly recommended you, and she has very high standards. We interviewed a few web developers and felt the most at ease when talking with you. Given our high anxiety state at the time, we needed someone who would infuse a sense of ease into the process, with excellent skill and clarity and responsiveness. You were all of those!
We are overwhelmed with work and did not have the time or the energy to DIY our site. Hiring Jess was the best business decision we made this year.
I could have taken a course and learned enough to produce an OK site, but I didn’t have time and I wanted more than OK.
You also did a great job taking my words and making them visually appealing on the site. I couldn’t believe how you brought them to life simply with the layout of each page.
This was something I never could have accomplished on my own and I feel confident my potential clients are seeing what they need to when coming to my website. I feel like they see key messages and can get an idea of what I’m offering quickly, so they know if they want to read more. I’m thrilled that I saved myself the time and headache!
Jess knows her stuff, creates beautiful web designs, and is VERY organized. You know exactly what to expect.
I am not a designer, I don’t even pick paint colors for my home without a designer. I am lost and incompetent with software of all kinds, and knew that I needed professional help. ASAP if I was going to get my website (and business) up and running instead of hiding behind “needing to create a website.”
Jess is relaxed and fun. In my opinion, for a solo RD, a website is an extension of your home and yourself. It needs to reflect who you truly are. Jess captured that for me.
Prepare to feel heard and like you’ve got a real partner in building your site.
Jess can listen and collaborate in a way that is SO hard to find. Prepare to feel heard and like you’ve got a real partner in building your site. Jess collaborates well because she understands how people use websites – including you as the ultimate owner of your site – and she builds with those people in mind. She’ll be honest if you’re going in the wrong design direction, while inspiring you to be creative at the same time. Ultimately, you will have fun as you helped to create a website both you and your clients love to come back to. For the first time, I feel like my website is staged to grow with me and my business. I feel so grateful to have invested with Jess! Highly recommend her in taking your brand and online visibility to the next level.
Before I had even “hired” you officially, you had gone ABOVE AND BEYOND answering all my questions!
I made my website myself 4 years ago when I opened my business.What I had was super standard, boring, and totally not creative. It worked functionally, but the design was definitely missing. I just never felt truly proud to send people to my site before.
I heard you speak and you provided such huge value from just that one hour(ish) talk that I knew when I was ready for a website update, I’d choose you! I also just really loved your totally upfront advice – it was very straightforward which for someone like me who doesn’t really understand websites, was super refreshing. After that session, I signed up for your email list and did a 5 day website remake challenge and was blown away that you were able to give me the tools required to make some seriously awesome adjustments to my site. As simple as adding 10 fun facts about me! I had about 3 potential clients that week mention a fun fact and how they related to it. SO cool!
I realized that if I am trying to create a high class business and get clients that I needed to invest in my business and create a website that attracted my ideal client.
I saw that you were a real, genuine human, you loved what you did and that you worked with other RDs. My fear was that I was going to look like every other RD website and that was not the case at all! You took my ideas and created it into something GREAT!
You care 100% about what you are doing and give the client your undivided attention. You don’t go MIA and then just send a finished product. You spoke to me throughout the process, asked for my input and were VERY accessible.
Her depth of knowledge goes beyond web design and she’s generous with sharing what she knows.
Jess knows what she’s doing, is very patient, laid-back, responsive to feedback, and available for questions. Her depth of knowledge goes beyond web design and she’s generous with sharing what she knows. For example, her advice to highlight my speaking topics was not something I would have thought about. I loved working with her and will continue to work with her as my website/business evolve.
Best investment I could have made.
I didn’t want to look like a stay at home mom blog. I wanted to be viewed as a professional service. You are smart, efficient, responsive, and can take a dream and make it a reality. You are the most patient person, which is great for someone who knows NOTHING about websites.
Design is NOT my area and thank goodness it is yours! You helped me organize my vision and thoughts. You provided valuable insight and lessons learned that really help me.
Working with Jess is more like an experience than hiring someone.
I am not a professional when it comes to building websites so instead of wasting time and energy I decided to choose Jess. When I decided to let allow you to delve into my mind and get a feel for my likes and dislikes as well as what I desired to express you calmed my fears.
My website looked “blah” It wasn’t reflective of the high end service that I am providing my clients. I totally recommend you, my site looks phenomenal!
Have I ever told you how much I love you?
Is that too forward?
Working with Jess is worth every penny.
Your website will be beautiful and functional, you’ll feel like she knows you and you’ll be comfortable asking for changes. She’s easy to communicate with and things get done on time! I was definitely afraid of the investment – mainly my concern was that even if it looked beautiful I wouldn’t be able to update it with ease, but you solved that! So easy to update!
Thank you for never rushing our project but basically finishing ahead of schedule.
Jess is SUPER type A, gets things done ahead of schedule, and takes direction well while pushing back on things that she doesn’t think are a good idea.
Working with you has been so wonderful. You are so responsive, organized, and on my team. I felt like you had such a good understanding of my vision, and you let me take the lead, while helping and suggesting what you thought could be useful along the way.
I like how you don’t force people to upgrade on everything either.
Jess’ calls were so beneficial. I always love being able to discuss the plans and set up before going forward that way I know how to plan. Jess is thorough with her work and it extremely passionate about making sure your brand/message/mission shine through. She gives timelines, steps, processes, and takes the stress off of you. Plus she makes it easy and maintainable.
I totally appreciate your unobtrusive approach.
I’ll just never forget how you took the time to answer some of my questions when I first found you through YouTube. I just knew then that you had a generous heart and that you truly cared about people, and I love working with people like that 🙂 I’ve never felt like you’ve given me a “hard sell,” and I totally appreciate your unobtrusive approach. You don’t need to do a hard sell, to me at least. Your work and spirit speak for themselves.
“Invested in a relationship with me rather than a quick sale…”
What sold me on Jess was during our first couple inquiry emails, there was NO pressure. Jess created the space for me to see if our needs matched and, more importantly, respected me enough to invest in a relationship with me rather than a quick sale. It felt like a partnership when it was time to review work. Not only does she save time by cutting through words and gets to the heart of representing a brand in the most authentic light possible, but she brings a no-nonsense approach to delivering a customer centered experience. She’s a kick ass person and working with her will be like working with a friend, a friend who happens to be an award winning designer!
“Done before the due date?!”
Everything was perfect! from the contract, the invoice, and the communication through Basecamp. You were wonderful to work with! I loved how you explained everything in a way I could understand. You were timely (done before the due date?!), and I loved working with you. I can not wait to launch my new site! You seemed to totally “get me” and I am happy that I decided to invest the money for a site that I love.
“The time I saved in having it done right the first time is priceless.”
I’ve always heard that you should outsource anything that sucks your life away or anything you’re not good at, and I wanted to get everything done right the first time. I hired a professional because I wanted someone who knew exactly what they were doing and who would be much better at it than I could ever be! The time I saved in having it done right the first time is priceless. It was basically as easy as messaging her, and getting a response quickly if I needed anything. She listened to my vision and I got exactly what I wanted!
“Jess felt like part of my team!”
Have you ever seen those really awesome baristas that can make eye catching, breathtaking, awe inspiring art with steamed milk? It’s such a talent and amazing skill, I have no idea how they do that. You know what else is eye catching and breathtaking? My website. My designer Jess, is like a barista for your business. She takes your order, puts it all together just the way you like it, and delivers it quickly with a smile. I’d launch a new site every day if it were only the price of a mocha latte.
Jess felt like a part of my team than someone who is performing a service for hire. It was extremely easy to communicate with her and she seemed to know when I wasn’t quite happy with something. It felt like I was her only client.
One of my favorite things about you is that you have a talent for adding value by educating your clients.
The content you develop is outstanding, and I always learn so much from you.
