“Patrick helped me immensely. Initially, I contacted him because the current site was not able to process orders. Patrick fixed it and did get me going quickly. I wanted a new website design and he sent me a plan in phases as I had to consider my budget. Along with the plan Patrick sends an explanatory video and does so during each phase of the plan. I am extremely pleased with the end result. Patrick is very responsive and very patient with questions. Patrick made this design, development and launch process very easy and I would highly recommend his services!” – Vicki Meiburg, Owner

Vicki Meiburg, the daughter of the creator of the 3-in-1 Knot Tying and Fly Threader fishing tools, contacted me because her existing eCommerce website at the time was having problems processing orders. This caused her sales to drop.

After a quick call and analyzing the situation, I switched her payment processing over to Stripe and her site was back online taking orders. Quick success!

Once that problem was solved, Vicki and I spoke about a site makeover for her online fishing store. From my assessment, there were some striking issues, which were:

> The website was not ranking for main keywords
> Site Traffic dropped from near 500 visits a month to 15
> The load time was really slow (a hosting issue)
> The design was old and outdated
> There wasn’t a lot of quality content

My discussion with Vicki was a productive one and we decided to go forward with a makeover of her fishing eCommerce store in a phased roll-out due to budget constraints. This entailed content layout, logo, design, keyword & competitor research, on-page SEO, testing and QA.

Needless to say, Vicki was immensely elated with how her online store looked and worked.

The site now get’s over 450 visitors a month and brings in a steady stream of sales.

On a monthly basis, as a subscriber to my eCommerce care plan, I keep her website secure, updated and running tip top.
