I am always available for questions and tweaks at no charge.
Michelle was so easy to work with. She listened to my feedback, was very knowledgeable and easy going with multiple changes. Feedback on my website from others has been terrific! So far comments are "fantastic", "concise with an easy way to contact you on the front page". "Format on my phone worked perfectly". I highly recommend Michelle to build your website. She is affordable and is very intuitive in her profession.

I am so happy and grateful to you, Michelle Gill, for turning my author website into something I love. The little touches (my hummingbird) you did made it even more special. I have already recommended you to all of the authors on the She Writes Press author site. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Not only did Michelle set up a GORGEOUS website for me, but she also created and/or linked all the other important pieces to my site an author needs, including Mail Chimp for newsletters, Amazon and Goodreads author accounts, and my social media (twitter, fb, Instagram). She was savvy, creative, efficient, listened well, and knew how to pull off exactly what I wanted. She wasn’t satisfied with the job until I was, even through all the little tweaks at the end. Highly recommend. Oh, and she’s priced reasonably too."

I’m a professional writer and speaker who needs a user-friendly website to communicate with readers and event planners. A tool like this is essential for my work, and I’m grateful to have found Michelle Gill. Michelle worked closely with me to create a website unique to my personal platform. It’s very attractive, easy to navigate, and highly functional. Michelle listened carefully to both my wants and my needs, responded promptly, and has remained available to answer questions and offer technical support. I highly recommend her work!

I had a website that was the best I could do, but it was static. It did not pop. I worked closely with Michelle Gill during a period of about six weeks. We have just re-launched the site, and I've received scores of raves within the first 24 hours. Professionals in book publishing who have seen new the website (and most of them have subscribed to the site) have called it among the best they have ever seen.
Most of the connections between elements of the website were at Michelle's suggestion. She is responsible for most of the graphics. She created the dynamic energy of the site, using materials I provided but she managed so that they popped. One reason I chose Michelle as designer is that I like her general design style, which is streamlined, uncluttered, robust, and intuitive. She knows how to encourage the viewer to move through the site and to LIKE doing it, while making sure that the elements that are most important to communicate the purpose of the site are seen.
I am deeply pleased with my new website, thanks to Michelle Gill. I recommend Michelle enthusiastically."

Outstanding website design—Michelle’s excellence is evident in everything she does, whether she’s writing, designing, or giving great service and support!! I highly recommend her services and just want to say a resounding ‘Thank You!!!!’ for everything you’ve done for me!

As I prepared to launch my first book, I needed assistance with website development. I wanted to learn how to do it, but really didn’t have time to spend on creating it myself. A friend recommended Michelle Gill. While I was conferring with Michelle, my husband decided to start his own business, and she gave us a wonderful plan to develop BOTH of our sites. It didn’t matter if our schedules were crazy, because Michelle will meet you where you are! She came to our home several times, and we also met her at hers. Via emails, a couple of phone calls, and personal visits, I couldn’t be happier with my website (brookallenauthor.com). Michelle put so much effort and expertise into it. Blogging is easy and fun, and I’ve gotten many compliments on it. She was also open to using some of my own photography in the site, along with material that my graphic designer made to match my brand.
I highly recommend Michelle’s services. Though she does many author sites, you don’t have to be an author to use her talents. You will own the website domain yourself, and she will train you bit by bit in how to update, blog, and post.

It was a true pleasure to work with Michelle in designing my website. She was so patient with me, as I was not very certain about what I really wanted or how I wanted it to look. I was very happy with the finished product, as it represents my personality and how I am trying to develop my brand. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to design a new website, or re-design one that is not working quite the way you want it to. The fact that she provides training on how to use it, and how to manage any add-ins is a big plus! I feel a lot more confident now that I can manage my email campaigns and my blog on my own.
Because I find most technology intimidating, just the thought of giving my cathyddudley.com a "facelift" was pretty unsettling. But Michelle has a sweet down-to-earth business style, and I soon discovered I actually looked forward to our sessions together! She was knowledgeable in adding new features but always sensitive to my ideas ... and conveyed the messages I wanted to share in such attractive ways. Plus, Michelle did all this with endless patience, often tweaking something over and over again until we both agreed it was just right. Bottom line: I couldn't be happier with my new website! Thank you, Michelle. You're the BEST and p.s. Added Bonus ~ I learned to edit the site myself.

Michelle did a wonderful job re-creating our out of date website for the Nkombo Island Project. It is now not only up to date, but she also got us connected with Pay Pal, a more cost effective way to give than the server we were previously using. She was great about listening to all our desires and put her own creative touches on it, which we think look great! We would highly recommend her!!

Michelle was wonderful at listening to our needs and design ideas and incorporating everything into our new site. The entire process was easy and the end result was exactly what we wanted.

We asked Michelle to start a website from scratch because we didn't know anything about starting a website. We really didn't even know what we wanted but because she knew the camp and what we wanted to do, she had some great ideas. She blew our mind at how quickly she came up with a very professional but fun website. She thought of things and added sites that we never would've thought of! Luckily for us, too, just when we thought it was done and looked perfect, she would add something or tweak a page and it would be even better!! She's great at what she does and obviously really loves it. She's very creative and helpful and wants it to be exactly what her customer wants. Thanks so much Michelle for your work. You're such a blessing to us and to so many others!
