Blue Cat Design
"The most important part of choosing a web designer is SERVICE, and Blue Cat Design has that it spades. They are accessible, answer all of your questions, implement changes quickly and best of all, give you the RESPECT you deserve. Their tons of experience has given them powerful ideas and inside knowledge that that they are more than happy to share with those of us who get lost navigating the do's and don'ts of the web universe. And perhaps the best part of all, is the little surprises that shower out of the blue. Maybe that's where the "Blue" in Blue Cat comes from. I recommend them to everyone. Now relax and enjoy the experience."
Steven J. Schwartz, SJS Productions
"This letter serves as a thank you and a testimony to your expertise. From a business perspective, I can expound the financial benefits: the website paid for itself with increased reservations in two months. Technically, the website has a presence on the net. You have compacted images so that they come up quickly. You have edited copy so that the search engines always bring our website up in the first five to ten entries on a keyword search. So thank you again for the website. It is the most important part of my marketing strategy."
Donna Cane, Victoria Inn
"We have been working with Blue Cat Design since 1997 when they created the first website for our Bed & Breakfast. Over the years, they have continued to keep the website a top-performer in key internet search engines; they have added additional pages to the website as the business has evolved and to make it more functional and visually appealing.
We estimate that over 90% of our new business comes from our website - either directly or indirectly. In fact, many prospective guests use the website and telephone simultaneously to make a reservation in the room of their choice. The website continues to perform well in the major search engines; this is due in no small part to the ongoing work of Blue Cat Design. Our friends and colleagues in the local bed & breakfast business are constantly in awe over the placement of the Butternut Inn in key search engines."
Bob Harrison, Butternut Inn
"Please accept these sincere comments on Blue Cat's professional creation of our all-important web site. Ms. Rowland knows her stuff. I especially appreciated her patience with my E-ignorance. The flood of compliments about our newly launched site is very gratifying. And, as promised from the begining, our search engine rankings are not only in the top 10, but mostly in the top 5. This Cat purrs. Thanks Blue Cat."
Douglas Gifford, Island Studio
"We thank you so much for all of your advice and expertise in helping us design such an impressive online shop. It was completely new territory for us, and your patience, plus your excellent communication skills and vast wealth of experience made it fun, and less scary. It was also great to agree on a price that we were comfortable with right from the beginning, and get such a fabulous site for the dollar. We would be happy to recommend your services. We have only high praise and deep thanks to share."
Siobhan Ryan, The Cheese Store of Beverly Hills
"Having newly added a related business (houseboat rentals) to our existing marina business, we decided to set up a web site through Blue Cat Design to promote the service and it has been one of the best decisions.
Blue Cat came highly recommended and has lived up to the recommendation. Approximately 80% of our first year bookings has been as a result of the web site. The site has been placed within the top ten of three major search engines and daily queries come from all over Ontario as well as some of the north eastern states."
Diane Audley, Audley's Cove Marina
I wanted to thank you for your helpful and courteous service over the last three years. Your knowledge and expertise has been extremely beneficial to our company, for small tasks and daunting projects alike. You've always been quick to respond to my inquiries, and on many occasions have been extremely flexible in order to meet my often urgent requests.
I wasn't sure about working with a company located almost entirely across the continent! However, my fears went unanswered, as during the three years I've never had any problem communicating remotely via phone, fax and email.
I've also been very pleased with the search engine ranking results that Blue Cat Design was able to achieve, both when we initially set up our www.teeterhangups.com site three years ago, and more recently with our newest site, www.proinversion.net. Google searches have resulted in the top 5 listings for many of our key marketing phrases.
Thanks again for your thorough, friendly service and we look forward to continuing our successful relationship long into the future!
Kimberly Grotzke, Teeter Hang Ups
"I would like to thank you for Biewer's beautiful, redesigned web site! The web site has become the informational/sales tool I had always hoped it would be.
I have been happy with Blue Cat's customer service since first contact to the launch of the re-vamped Biewer site. From the overall look of the site to the searchable database, our new site is an elegant, informational and great representation of Biewer Lumber. The best part of the design process was being able to track the site's progress, there aren't many marketing mediums that let you daily see the progression of the finished product!
We are currently discussing maintenance programs and new pages that will need to be added to the site in the very near future. I look forward to continuing my relationship with Blue Cat Design for my web site maintenance needs!"
Pam Phillips, Biewer Lumber
"Please allow me to express our great satisfaction with the web site your firm designed for us. It shows the terrific talent that both you and your staff put to work for your clients. Not only was the design what we wanted, it was a pleasure to work with Blue Cat Design during the process. We also cannot over look our satisfaction with the price and the fact that when all was said and done, the project came in under budget. BRAVO!!!!
We would highly recommend your firm to anyone wishing quality work, fair pricing and a great working relationship."
Richard D. Anderson, Southern Star Trading Company
"And, thank you again for the work you did on
the site. It looks wonderful!!!"
David Fox, Netfest Internet Film Festival
"The response to your design of our web site has been tremendous. Your business strength in search engine positioning has placed us in the top out of several hundred thousand in our targeted keywords. That internet marketing strength was the primary reason why I went with Blue Cat Design and you have definitely exceeded my expectations. Thank you and your staff for an excellent job."
Mark Stepanek, International Seal - FNGP
"We want to thank you for the work you and your team recently did designing and constructing our web site. While initially we had some different ideas about what would "work", we now see that your vision was what we needed for our site to achieve its final form. Your creative design in the choice of colors, icons, and the layout of the page was excellent. The end result is wonderful!
In hindsight we realize the enormity of the task, not only in the complexity of the site, but also the time constraints that emerged as the project neared completion. Throughout this time, the communication between us was excellent. Your staff was always considerate and helpful as we tried to explain our ideas to achieve some coherent. whole. You acted as an anthropologist, mediating a cross cultural exchange between family therapists with specific content and web designers with the creative tools. We are fortunate to have found you and your team."
William Lax, Planet Therapy
"I thought you might like an update on the Villa Papillon web site you created for us last year. The high search engine rankings you achieve for the site has allowed us to do our own bookings for the villa online; we have now canceled our rental agency. In the past 11 weeks, we have already booked 9 weeks - and with no agency commission! Our web site has allowed us to increase profit by 30%. Having been in marketing all my life, I understand that all the "hits" in the world mean nothing if people don't buy. I believe that our web site is designed to separate the "lookers" from the "buyers". Out of the emails we receive, 1 out of 7 books the villa. And that's the bottom line. I'll call you when I'm ready to work on our second web site.
Michael Perron, Villa Papillon
"Over the past few years that I have working with you and the Blue Cat Design team to build the Speedball brand, we have had remarkable results. And because of our efforts, Speedball is positioned for growth. I am especially proud of the fact that we revitalized a hundred year old brand with exciting new products, innovative marketing and Web design solutions, and focused business development activities.
Bill Nicholson, Speedball Art Products Company
"I want you to know that I've been most satisfied with Blue Cat Design. I first heard of your company on a TV program last spring and was favourably impressed with you (as owner) as well as your ethics & policies. During the setting up of my website, I found your reputation well-deserved. Your prices were fair, you always answered any concerns or questions I had quickly, and gave me exactly what I asked for.
To sum up, if anyone is looking for an honest, professional and experienced company, I would recommend Blue Cat hightly (and have!). My experience with your company has been a great learning experience, and has given my business the tools to grow in sales and expand in new directions, including wholesale and foreign export. Thank you for making my plunge into the web a smooth, pleasant and profitable experience."
Chris de Hann, Avalon Creations
It looks fabulous!! You and your staff have done a wonderful job on this. Again, thanks - it looks sensational!!!
Tammy, Alternate Resources
"Prior to Blue Cat Design, our company had tried two separate web designers, neither of whom could satisfy our expectations. Admittedly, we are a demanding client who is very particular about our internet presence. Blue Cat handled our project with admirable patience and professionalism. Turning out a superior design, the Blue Cat team was able to capture the essence of what we were seeking...the establishment of an on-line community. Blue Cat's strength lies in its exemplary creative direction coupled with proven interactive marketing success."
Jason Craine, The Minacs Group Inc.
"very happy with the design look of the web page"
Lisa Wilcox, Klohn-Crippen Consulting Ltd.
"I wanted to take some time to thank you for all your efforts in completing the World Wide Web design for Viewz. An online magazine is a complex and involved undertaking that requires a high level of skill on the part of the designer. You are professional in your approach, easy to work with, highly creative, technically adept and work to a deadline. The site and your design is already receiving rave reviews from our audience. I trust that we will continue to be able to use your services for some time to come."
"the page looks fantastic! The page is excellent and we are more than pleased."
Good Fairy Enterprises
"We selected Blue Cat because they have the combination of internet marketing expertise and creativity we were looking for. We did our homework, inspected numerous websites and asked a lot of questions. Christine and her team really impressed us with their depth of knowledge, technical experience, design skills and follow-through -- without being intimidating. We were able to communicate with them easily and establish a comfortable rapport from the first meeting."
Lynn M. Kane, Assistant Vice President, Retail Marketing Group,
M&T Bank (Manufacturers and Traders Trust Company)
"thanks for all your hard work! You have definitely earned my
respect and admiration, talk about above and beyond the call."
Mike Breen, Industry Canada
It was very exciting for both Robin and I to see what you have put together
so far. We both like the color scheme alot! Thanks for your patience and for all your handholding.
Susie Ketchum, Extraordinary Doors

"The purpose of this letter is to advise you of the success Gaines Pet Foods has had with the Web site Blue Cat Design recently developed. As you know, we included a free sample page in our web site. Because of the top ten search engine rankings you achived, within the first month we experienced in excess of 15,000 requests for samples. We are very excited with the new customer potential our web site is providing. Thanks again for a great job."
Regan Works, Director of Sales, Gaines Pet Foods

You are very professional, but more important . . . patient. Thanks."

"It's been six years since Blue Cat Design created our website and I remain very happy
with the site and especially with how effective you've been at keeping it at
the top of the search engines results list (#1 and #2 for two sets of important keywords). My website is beautiful and I get constant emails and phone calls about the items pictured."
