How often can you just ask a friend who did their awesome website and get a recommendation? Like…almost never.
Even if you’re lucky enough to have an entrepreneurial friend, chances are they’re struggling to have an awesome website, too. There’s really no easy or accurate way to compare what each prospective partner might bring to the table. So, particularly when you’re new to the whole website creation thing, there’s a whole lot of trusting your gut. I understand and appreciate that.
I’m honored that those who’ve shared feedback below trusted their guts and worked with me to create their websites.
I appreciated knowing what was going to be delivered up front, and Teresa's advice on what work would really make a difference to my site and what would just be a waste of money. I also appreciated the regular communication so I knew exactly how the timeline was progressing and the few things I had to do to make sure work could progress quickly. Teresa quickly gathered through our communications what it was needed in my site and what sort of site maintenance I'd be able to handle, and catered to that. She was also great at catching the curve balls (unexpected changes) I threw her way.
Teresa's expertise was invaluable! She was kind, patient, extremely helpful and knowledgeable in every aspect of this project. I can't say enough good about her. She is the reason I have a website and one that I really like. I would give her the highest recommendation to anyone needing help in building a website.

We brought together our ideas, concerns, and what our ultimate goal was. Teresa was never afraid to say where something was going to work and where things might get "sticky". Her guidance resulted in a beautiful, clean and modern site, which was exactly what we were looking for!
[I appreciated] your availability, accessibility. You always return calls and/or e-mails promptly. Also, your willingness to work with us to create the website the way we envision it. We keep reshaping it in our heads and you keep listening to and implementing our new ideas.
One prior experience with a website designer left us hanging. We got the site but had no idea how to edit it. By contrast, you created the site for us, then taught us how to edit it and now continue to be available to answer questions whenever we have them.

I love Teresa's design and user experience acumen! No one can touch her in the realm of coding expertise, but it was her elegance in creating compelling design that captivated me. She truly focuses in on what it is you want to have happen and simply creates it. She partners with you on the process and ensures that you are beyond satisfied every step of the way.
There is no comparison! Teresa is uniquely gifted at what she does and is the ultimate professional. She listens with empathy and has keen insight into what your business communication needs are. From there, she designs a site that provides you with world-class pulling ability.

We're Teresa/the simpler web fans! Having worked with you on at least four of our web sites in the past few years, I've really appreciated your attention to detail, the amount of creativity and coordination as well as the adherence to deadlines that went into designing our sites.
You were incredibly patient in helping us understand the new CMS system and in presenting several cost-saving options that would meet our budget. I've also appreciated the fact that I can call or email you any time we encounter a technical problem.
Our experiences have always been positive, and there's no one else I would use on our next project or refer clients to if they needed web design consultation. You've been involved in some way in all of our web projects since we've been based in Atlanta so I have no past experiences that I can compare them with.

Teresa has a knack for pinpointing the intent of the website and the style and usability of the site in relation to the intent. She gets how a visitor to the site will perceive the site, and corrects the details to make a visit to the site a more intuitive experience.
I haven't had a customized [site] before Teresa's design work. Having a professional website advocate is the difference between night and day. The site is more dynamic, more customized to my taste, and more user friendly than I had imagined.

My business partner and I went to the simpler web after we discovered that no one, other than the person who built it, could maintain our site…After months and months and thousands of dollars, we had to scrap the entire site and start over.
Enter the simpler web owner, Teresa Rosche Ott. The experience couldn't have been any more different! She patiently sat with us to find out exactly what we wanted, taught us how to update and add content, and the features she installed were far more user friendly and owner friendly.
Thanks to the simpler web and Teresa, we now have a site that we are able to easily maintain and proud to show off!.

This was my first website to have developed but it was a great experience. Teresa educates and empowers you to take ownership of the website allowing for more control of your own site. It kept costs down [because I'm not being] charged to make many small changes [that I can handle myself].
You did a great job of interpreting what I imagined into a real website, which could be difficult since I didn't always have something clear in mind. This intuition is critical particularly when I didn't know exactly what was possible or how to describe the idea I had in mind.
Your knowledge of what's doable and what may be doable but perhaps beyond the scope of my budget was invaluable. Plus your alternative suggestions and ideas I had never considered made a big difference in developing the perfect website for me.
I didn't really know what to expect as this was my first web project. Your combination of technical knowledge and creative input was fantastic and made all the difference.
My first website was done by a friend for very little cost. The end result [of the new site] looks very professional and it did not take much time to get it done.
