Website Design and Maintenance Testimonials
"When I first started to develop my business (Coaching for Artists) I hired Lea to create a website that would appeal to artists. She found the great abstract image that has become my logo. She taught me how to write the text in the language of my customer, and then edited it to make it better. She identified the key words that would make google like my site. It is many years later now, and I get at least a third of my clients, both local and national, directly from the website. When artists call, they often say, "you seemed to be talking directly to me." Thank you, Lea!"
~ Mary Edwards, San Rafael, Coaching for Artists
"I was lucky to meet Lea Dutton at the moment I was ready to change my website. Within a week she had me up and running on WordPress and had showed me how to use it! Lea is a great communicator and I would recommend her to anyone. I feel fortunate to be working with her. She is knowledgeable and patient, great at explaining how to navigate around a page, and she listens well. Thank you, Lea!"

"At least 100 of my friends and family have sent me emails praising the website you made for me. It is a total success. Everyone loves the "hover" thing and they really like the crisp, clean look of the site. Again, I sincerely thank you for such a nice job."

"Sites with Smarts gave us the websites that we wanted: clean design, easy to navigate, quick to load, secure, and low maintenance. The owner, Lea, was a gem to work with and if you are ready to put your business on the web, she's the one to help you."
~ K. Vote, Vogt Consulting and Jay Rosner, Jay Rosner
"Lea captured everything I envisioned for my website and provided a wealth of advice and information that helped me develop a website that I feel truly reflects my unique business. She tirelessly trawled through photo galleries to find the perfect visuals to accompany the text and also thoroughly researched competitors' websites to make sure we were in sync with industry patterns. No matter how long I took to get back to her between stages of development (often months!), Lea was always immediate in putting in place my latest progression. She never lost track of the ultimate goal and handled everything in a professional, timely and personal manner. I am delighted with and proud of my finished website and know I never would have made it without Lea's expertise every step of the way.
~ Jane Sykes, Jane's Home Kitchen
