When it came time to redevelop my business website, I knew I needed to find a company that would make it easy and do a great job fast. When I choose Ruth Kuttler and her company WebPuzzleMaster, I knew I had made the right choice. Her planning alone helped me to get clear on profit centers that were best for my future growth. The design with a focus on mobile friendliness was incredible. She set up great profiles for all my social media which is helping me to connect with my market. I’m convinced that the organization and website content she wrote, edited and formatted is the reason I am coming up on page 1 and 2 for my best keywords after the site was live for only 1 month. And the traffic is converting into leads and customers! I’ve already made my investment back. My clients rave about the site, telling me how easy and informative it is – plus they love the design and all the before and after pictures. This is a web development company I highly recommend and will continue to do business with in the years to come.
