"How to count the ways that Leighton and blueSWIRLS.com improved our website business? First, he was easy to work with; instead of telling us what he was going to do for us, he asked questions to figure out what we needed. Second, he designed the site quickly and gave us personal training in how to put our products on the site and handle the orders once they started coming in. And wow! Did the orders come in! Our website went up in August and in the next five months we did over FOUR times the web business that we had done in the previous eight months!"

"Since switching to Leighton O'Connor at blueSWIRLS.com my website business has doubled. Not only has he increased traffic to my site, he also made it more navigable and "a pleasure to use" (as my customers tell me). He nixes any additions that are not first rate. His photography showcases my products in their finest light. Bottom line: I've had to hire more employees to take over the load and I've got a totally online business. I think that says it all other than thank you Leighton, for making me look great!"

"blueSWIRLS.com is the best thing that has happened to my business. Not only did Leighton get my website looking and working better than my previous website (that cost me much more), my site ranks very high in search engines for my keywords. Because of my high rankings, I receive 2-6 new leads for garage doors a week. I'm very impressed with Leighton's work and so is my competition. :) "

I must tell you that I am extremely impressed with your work on behalf of Designer Bath. The new logo is great and the ad copy you have supplied us has been gorgeous (I have heard similar comments from people I have talked to).

I have always felt that the advertisers we work with at Boston Spirit contribute quite a bit to the overall look and feel of the magazine and your ad creative certainly helps."
