Here’s what people are saying about The Small Business Website Guy
John manages the web sites for two different organizations where I have management responsibility. One of them was quite a challenge to set up, requiring John to provide a significant amount of custom programming that no existing Wordpress plugin could handle. From the first calls to discuss the requirements to the construction and the ongoing updates and maintenance of both sites, John has been great to work with, always either ready with the answer or willing to dig in and find the answer promptly. Wordpress plus John Sawyer is a GREAT combination for economical solutions to most website needs.
I had an issue with my wordpress site and a friend gave me John's contact information. I was panicking because I had marketing in place and my site wasn't working right. John stuck with it, found the issue, fixed it and for a very reasonable cost. I decided to hire him to backup and monitor my site on an ongoing basis and I can't tell the peace of mind this brings me! Thanks John for being an important part of my web presence!
In December of 2012, I was in need of help creating templates for use in the construction of my sales and opt-in pages. As a proud and enthusiastic Wordpress user, I knew there should be a way to create the results I wanted, but figuring it all out was beyond my skill set. John came highly recommended, and from the outset his interactions with me were prompt, courteous and very thorough. He far exceeded my expectations in designing me two distinct templates, and his installation instructions were well thought out and took me step by step through putting the templates in place. I'm a detail-oriented person with endless curiosity and a thirst for learning (okay, I'm something of a geek), so I deeply appreciate John's willingness to educate me and answer my many Wordpress and coding-related questions. He is a thorough and patient teacher, and is happy to share how he accomplishes a given task, which means a lot to me as I strive to become an even more efficient Wordpress user. John completes my tasks with integrity and in a very timely manner, and always keeps me up to date on his discoveries and progress as he goes along. Not only is he always a pleasure to work with, but he's also just a super nice guy in general. He goes above and beyond in sharing both his time and expertise, and I know I can always count on him to provide me a quality service at a very affordable price, and then some! For anyone who needs a highly-skilled, reliable and friendly Wordpress tech, look no further than John! He has become an indispensable member of my team, and I am deeply grateful and appreciative to him for the spectacular service he always provides me. Thank you really doesn't express it well enough, John, but thank you, all the same! 🙂
I've been building HTML websites for 13 years, but had never worked with WordPress. When a client came to me needing help with a WP site, I thought, "How hard can it be?" Yeah... right... "Nightmare" doesn't begin to describe it! A friend recommended John and life immediately got easier! John looked the site over and clearly explained why the nuts and bolts of the program defied human comprehension from a logistic stand point and why it was causing so Many PROBLEMS!
The creator of the WP site had re-written important components making mere mortals working on it all but impossible! My client had spent $thousands$ of dollars on this site and it still wasn’t working, but I convinced him to give John a try. John graciously (with enthusiasm!) undertook “fixing” the site for a reasonable investment – and HE DID fix it
Now the site’s control panel is the user friendly WP program it was intended to be and my client is ecstatic! My headache is gone and John (the good guy in the white hat) rides off into the sunset – another day of fixing the problems of WP done! Thank you, John, for your amazing patience, expert knowledge and determined efforts! I highly recommend John’s expertise for all your WordPress needs! With gratitude!
I've had several small business websites online since 1998 and have worked with many website professionals between now and then. John is at the top of my list. His tech skills are broad-ranging and outstanding. Just as important to me, he communicates often and clearly - in plain English! I have also recommended him to my coaching clients - they rave about him too!
John is a Godsend! He is creative, knowledgeable, efficient, flexible and always ready to go the extra mile!. He quickly captured my vision and I am delighted with the impact my site has had on clients around the world.
I started using John's services in October 2010 and I have been nothing but amazed with John's expertise, the deliverance of his services and his generousity. On top of that, John does so with true integrity and care. If you want someone who gives you way more than you bargained for and can trust 100%, then John's your man
When I began my journey with John Sawyer I was, and still am, a bit of a novice about the internet. John is non-judgmental, knowledgeable, open minded, fair, personable, patient, trustworthy and makes my time with him actually fun—an experience I never had before dealing with my website.
John always makes me feel supported and has helped me in every way to learn and grow. I can't praise this exceptional man enough. Frankly, he's the best!
I'm pleased to recommend John. We first met on the LinkedIn WordPress Group. I had a problem with my blog a couple of years ago and put out a question. A number of IT consultants responded but John kept giving me good advice. I finally told him it was time for me to start paying him and he has been my IT consultant ever since. I have referred John to several friends who are also pleased with his knowledge of WP, his responsiveness and his ability to fix things on our blogs. Thanks, John.
When it came time to build my coaching website, I was determined to find someone who had great technical skills but would respect my vision. John Sawyer is that guy. I truly could not have imagined the process being better in any way. From day one he listened to me, respected my requests and concerns and answered my endless list of questions with patience, thoroughness and thoughtfulness. Every step of the way I have felt he was there for me.
Now complete, my website is exactly as I had dreamed it would be, and working with him has been a pleasure. I cannot recommend John enough. He is proficient at his craft and a consummate professional.
When it was time to convert my business site from WordPress.com to WordPress.org, I sought John's help. We'd met in a blogging class where I'd had a chance to hear him answer questions and interact with our class as a guest expert. John has a gift for conveying technical information in an accessible, digestible way and doesn't mind being asked the same question more than once. Thank goodness!
His is the knowledge that comes from deep experience, practice, and enthusiasm for his craft. He'd never steer you wrong by saying he knows something he doesn't and he is well networked in his own community for solutions and support. He lets you know when he can accomplish your requests and is timely and thorough. For a geek (smile) he is an excellent communicator in writing as well as on the phone. I can't imagine a better resource for the small business owner. John has built, modified, and fixed anything that I've asked him to with a friendly professionalism I greatly appreciate.
My goodness, am I fortunate to have been referred to John. He has made maintenance of my site totally carefree and has helped me improve its positioning in Google Analytics. On top of that, he's a real gentleman and terrific to work with.
I've worked with John over the past two years to support my WordPress blog site. I do some of my own maintenance and support, but when things get too complicated for me, I always call on John. He is knowledgeable, responsive and affordable and has been a great help in moving me forward with my website. Unlike other professionals I've worked with, John is willing to share his knowledge and explain what he's doing, not just do the work and keep it a secret. I appreciate both the service and the educational aspects and highly recommend John and his business for website technical support.
I'll be forever grateful to John, the Small Business Website Guy, for providing the precise guidance and tools I needed to create a website for my law practice that I can update myself. John is knowledgeable, experienced, efficient, patient and kind. I highly recommend his very economical, expert services to anyone who wants to create and maintain a website without having to become a computer guru!
