Web Design Reviews from Peoria and Central Illinois clients

Never hesitate to contact any of my clients to find out how their experience was and—most importantly—still is today.

Chapin & Russell Associates, Peoria, IL
Dear Lisa,

The purpose of this letter is to officially thank you for your work on our website redesign for Chapin & Russell Associates. In addition to providing excellent customer service that included the patience to adapt to our schedule limitations you were very supportive and professional. The final product in regard to design, layout and functionality of the website as it relates to the unique style of our organization that provides such a broad range of mental health services including coaching, counseling and neurotherapy was exceptional. We have already received numerous compliments. Thank you for your responsiveness, artistic talent and insights into what would work best. Lastly, thank you for updating our site so that it is mobile ready and maximizes the search engine optimization of the various search engines found on the internet. We will recommend your website services to anyone who asks for a referral.

With Deepest Gratitude,
Brad Post, LCSW, CADC, SAP
Vice President of Clinical Services

CASA of Peoria County, Peoria, IL
“We knew our old Web site was falling woefully behind and a major overhaul was required. We are so excited about the new site and its anticipated role in building awareness and support of CASA of Peoria County.

The Web site’s development, hosting and ongoing site maintenance was donated entirely by Lisa Murphy Web Design, a Peoria-based Web site design and development firm. To have someone in our community step-up and take on such a large project at no charge, and complete it in such a short timeframe, is greatly appreciated by the entire CASA family! Thank you, Lisa Murphy!”

“It was a great pleasure to work with Lisa Murphy. She is extremely professional, efficient, and timely, making her services a huge value over her competitors.
Lisa was able to help direct us in the right direction to update our website as well as come up with better ways to design our pages. Lisa also helped us with Search Engine Optimization (SEO) that really put us on the map.

Graphic Express, Peoria, IL (now a division of Martin One Source)
“I’ve been dragging my feet for 20 years. Finally, I decided the Internet was here to stay and we needed to come up with a website. Next came the hard part . . . what content to use and who would design it? Somehow I stumbled upon Lisa Murphy. Literally, the rest was easy. Lisa was great to work with. She took our ideas and ran with them. Working in collaboration with Lisa, we came up with a look and content that we’re very pleased with. And best of all, it was absolutely painless. Lisa guided us with patience and humor through the process. Thanks, Lisa, for dragging me into the 21st century.”

“Lisa made the process of building a new website very easy and simple. She always helped provide advice on what did, and more importantly, what did not look professional. The many responses I have received about my website all mention the user-friend ability, professional appearance, and organization of my site.

Purrsonalities – The Daniel J. Elias Memorial Foundation, Peoria, IL
“Before I hired Lisa to design the web site for PURRSONALITIES™, I contacted several of her previous clients for recommendations. They were so pleased with their web sites and with her enthusiasm that I immediately hired her. Lisa is skillful, prompt, and professional. Lisa not only designed our web site in record time, she also offered numerous helpful suggestions for fundraising. Everyone who has seen the web site has been highly impressed by Lisa’s creativity and expertise. I highly recommend Lisa Murphy Web Design.”

Central Illinois Chapter – Association of Fundraising Professionals, Peoria, IL
“When our local chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) decided to add a local website, we looked at several different web design places. We needed something that was professional looking, yet easy to use and navigate and a site that wouldn’t cause a big drain on our chapter finances.

What stood out for me in choosing Lisa Murphy was not only her previous work, but the professional and friendly attitude with which she tackled our site design. She walks you through the steps, takes time to answer questions and the relationship doesn’t end with your site going live. When I called a few previous clients, they all said the same thing- “Lisa is great and is so easy to work with!” I now know that first-hand and I know anytime that we have a question or want to make changes or improvements that Lisa will be there to help us! We have enjoyed getting our first chapter website launched and look forward to working with Lisa for many years to come!

You may find bigger, but in my opinion, you won’t find better! Lisa not only takes a professional approach, but makes it fun, too! We have a great looking site that our membership can enjoy thanks to her hard work. Great job Lisa!”

First United Presbyterian Church, Pekin, IL
We needed help! Our website was about four years old and in need of a redesign, our volunteer webmaster had moved out of town, not all of our pages would show up on the internet and our web host had become essentially nonresponsive to our plight. We needed a website redesign and a new host and we needed it quickly.

While searching the internet for a web designer in the Peoria area, we found Lisa’s company and were impressed with her client portfolio and some of her clients were familiar to us. Working with us by phone and e-mail, Lisa had the entire site redesigned and up on the internet with a new web host in about a week.

We now have a website that looks professional, is well organized and user friendly. Lisa was great to work with, always professional, always available and always patient with those of us who are not webmasters. We highly recommend her services for your web design needs.”

“We are thrilled with the web site that Lisa has designed for us. Our customers have found our web site easy to navigate and very informative. Lisa was very professional, friendly, and easy to work with. She also repaired and upgraded a computer that we thought we would have to replace. We highly recommend Lisa for your web design and computer needs. She is reasonably priced and GREAT to work with.”

“Lisa was a lifesaver for us. She was so easy to work with and she puts 100+% effort into her work. She was so patient, and in a couple weeks we had the perfect website for us. She made the job of getting a website up and going so easy. She’s a professional with that “personal touch”.

“We are thrilled with our new website and have already recommended Lisa Murphy to other business owners. She is professional and personable.

Clark Properties, East Peoria, IL
To Whom It May Concern:

Clark Properties was forced with the dilemma of how to best to reach potential renters for our vacancies. Newspaper advertising is expensive and pretty one-dimensional and couldn’t give all the information we found pertinent.

In September of 2006, we contacted Web Design by Lisa Murphy. After our initial consultation, we decided Ms. Murphy to be our best choice. It has proven to be a wise choice. Her attention to detail, pulse on attractiveness to customers, and creativity produced a website we are very proud of. We are receiving on the average of 200 hits per week and our occupancies are growing everyday. At this point we couldn’t begin to measure our return of investment, but we’re sure the numbers would be through the roof.
Because of this success, we are now on our second project with Lisa, to develop a website for one of our sister companies. We are sure that whomever extends an offer to Lisa for her services will reap the benefits many times over.

Dreams for Seniors Charity, Pekin, IL
“I highly recommend Lisa to anyone needing web design. She created a website for our non-profit organization, Dreams for Seniors Charity. Her attention to detail impressed me so much. The website explains all about Dreams for Seniors. I didn’t really know what I wanted, but once I was in Lisa’s hands, she developed an informative and attractive website for us. I can hardly wait to see what will be generated from this site. Lisa doesn’t disappear after the creating is done, she’s right there to answer questions and teach me how to make this website a tool I can use to build our charity. And not being a computer wiz myself, this facet of her service, is worth so much to me. I’m so thankful we have her on our team. I look forward to a bright and productive future
with Lisa.”

Clark Marketing, Peoria, IL
“Lisa developed my website a few years ago and it was an outstanding experience. She’s very thorough and responsive. And came through with many great suggestions to enhance my site. I highly recommend her to other small business owners because she’s so good, quick–and cost effective. I’m glad to see she’s now advertising her services so I can let others know just how good she is to work with. She charges reasonable rates–especially when compared to the “big box” tech solutions out there who do not have a customer service approach, do the bare minimum and
charge you an arm-and-a-leg in the process.”

Valerie Clark
Owner, Clark Marketing

“Techno wiz, artist’s talent–and taste–combined in a Web designer? Unheard of–til Lisa! I’ve never recommended anybody for anything before now…this gal’s just too good to keep a secret…see for yourself…check out her work on the Web…guaranteed cool. Reasonable rates. Oh, and in her spare time from Web stuff, she fixed my computer that I had left for dead! Thanks Lisa, next time I come back, I hope it’s for Web again!”
