Why Choose Dragonwyck Web Design?   Dragonwyck Web Design LLC BBB Business Review

Things to avoid:

  • "Do It Yourself" website builders (nothing is really 'free')
  • Offshore vendors
  • Inexperienced designers
  • Using friends & relatives as your web developer
  • Offshore technical support centers
  • Web Developers who are unable to take on 'end-to-end' responsibility for a project, and need assistance from others
  • Vendors who rely on insecure 'open source' development platforms, such as WordPress (we write our own CMS Software)

Your web designer should:

  • Have a local presence; someone local and honest, that you can talk to face to face.
  • Provide an online presence for your company that aligns with your business goals, and responds to your customer's needs.
  • Possess the knowledge and experience to build sound business solutions that drive success.
  • Leverage newer technologies to help your business stay at the leading edge, while maintaining backwards compatibility with older browsers and devices.
  • Look at the big picture to deliver a web presence that provides the optimal business solution for your business.

"Dragonwyck Web Design with its creator John Ohlson has been an excellent company for not just the creation of our web site but its maintenance.

"...thanks a million for your continued awesome help and customer service! You are the best!"

"He has contrived to get my own site to the top of virtually every search for computer services in this area, to the extent that the site provides so many leads that I find it unnecessary to advertise my services."
- Geoff Jackson, New Dimension Technologies, Gig Harbor, WA

"We desperately needed help building a website. Our old one was actually hurting our business, it was that bad.  Dragonwyck Web Design hooked us up with an awesome new website: Sunset Yacht Sales LLC, which has generated more traffic in the last 2 months than our old site did in the first 2 quarters of the year.  We HIGHLY recommend Dragonwyck Web Design."
- Katie Lodge, Sunset Yacht Sales LLC, Gig Harbor

"There are lots of choices when it comes to web design and hosting as we know.
I experienced this when we started to set up our new website. I found the support, knowledge and impeccable follow up at Dragonwyck Web Design to be top notch. They truly care about their customers and you can be assured that your success rate will be higher by using their service."
