Vance has been key in developing my company's first website. For someone who do not have any expertise on web design and development, he helped me through all the process. He understood I needed someone who could support my 'lack of knowledge' on the field. Vance is a great professional , and talented developer who will always give you the best advises and options that i was unaware of. Great service and great price!!! Thanks Vance over and over again!!!

We can't thank you enough for the beautiful website you built for us. It is everything and more that we could have wanted. We know you were probably up late on a weekend working on the launch, and we really appreciate all your hard work on it. Again, thank you for building us this amazing website.

Our office's experience with Vance was excellent. He listened to our objectives for accessibility and design for a new webpage with mobile integration and developed exactly what we needed. He offered us great advice and insight into how to maximize our content, including strategies for social media and blog posts. Vance is both professional and personable and the service he provides is well above what we had received from other developers.

Vance Bell is the consummate professional. He helped me to develop a website for my consulting business, and it has been very well received by influentials in my industry. He worked very diligently and effectively to complete the project in a timely and cost-effective manner, and provided many good ideas that I chose to have incorporated into the design. Vance came to me highly recommended, and I would in turn be pleased to recommend his work to others.

I spoke with numerous web designers and no one offered the expertise, time and professionalism that Vance did. He is not only a web designer but versed in strategic business management, SEO, marketing and the important details that can make or break a successful web company. I launched an e-magazine with ease thanks to the help and support of Vance Bell. And the best part?? The compliments on my site keep pouring in. I would recommend Vance Bell to everyone. He is outstanding.

Vance is a special blend of consistency and creativity. Read that sentence carefully: he blends consistency and creativity, to the detriment of neither. How many people working in the web business do that successfully? Not very many that I have run into. Take it upon yourself to run into Vance--quickly.

Talk about user-friendly! Great job!

Creating a web site can be a daunting task. Vance Bell worked with me to design one that conveys a professional image and truly captures the essence of my business. Vance coordinated all aspects of the project from the initial brainstorming to launch. As he guided the process, his manner was direct and his suggestions were right on target. Since the site went live, he has also been generous with his time for follow-up questions and discussion. I am extremely pleased with and proud of the site and constantly receive favorable feedback from visitors, colleagues, and clients.
