Bill Getz Professional Water Dowser

Over 80% of my business contacts are coming from internet searches leading to the Mohawk-Hudson Dowsers website. My only advertising was in a Professional Services section of a weekly paper and that was no longer getting results.  A survey of my customers indicated they found me through a Google search, so I decided it was time to have my own website.

Not having any experience in this area, I choose to have Rick Phillips design my website after reviewing the CNY Kayakers and the Camillus Kayak sites. I found him to be very professional, creative and reasonably priced. I simply sent him many files of text, photos and links. Within hours he had a home page concept established. From his templates and suggestions, I was able to expand the content for the website. Even though I live 2.5 hrs from Rick, he was responsive with emails and phone calls, getting my site up and running much faster than I expected. Corrections were done within minutes.

From the moment the website went online, searches on keywords brought up my site on page 1 of the results.  I can’t find the words to praise Rick enough!

Greater Camillus Chamber of Commerce

Rick Phillps is a total professional and a pleasure to work with, as he is so easily accessible. In my position approximately 150 business people depend on me to keep their information current on our website. Since Rick took over the Chamber website and completely revamped it, members have been impressed at the speed their changes are recorded, and new members added.  Rick added numerous enhancements to the site that make it easy to navigate and find the information visitors are looking for. He added the credit card function by working solely with the merchant service provider, and he has vastly improved the images by working closely with the Chamber photographer. He acts quickly on every request and any problems arise he takes care of them immediately. Rick has been a great asset to the Greater Camillus Chamber of Commerce and is very much appreciated for his knowledge, his service, and his very affordable price.

Camillus Kayak Shop

I am Tom Kitt; the business I started back in 1998 is the Camillus Kayak Shop. When Rick Phillips started his web design business he offered to create a site for my shop. Since I had tried doing it myself and became frustrated with the process, I was happy to have Rick assume the task. Not only did he exceed my expectations by leaps and bounds, he kept in touch with me to make sure I was pleased with the site as it progressed into what it is today – a truly informational picture of my shop and all the various kayaks I sell. The information needs to be updated as new boats arrive and Rick is quick to work with the actual manufacturers to make sure the boats are well-represented. He can be reached at his home office at practically any hour, and responds immmediately to changes in hours, special sales, products – he has enhanced the site immensely and he also has worked with various search engines to make sure the shop comes up on the first page of their browsers!  Rick truly goes above and beyond to please, and he is a true professional.

To Whom It May Concern,

I would like to share my experience of working with Richard Phillips, Owner of Web Design by Rick. For years I have been a member of a Committee that has always wanted to create a website for marketing purposes. After being referred to Rick from the Camillus Chamber of Commerce, I sat down with him and a fully operational website in less than 30 days! I was truly amazed at Rick’s abilities and his commitment to me – his Customer. He always called me back and completed tasks much faster than I had imagined. Rick is a true professional who takes his work very seriously and I know we will be using Rick for the coming years. I highly recommend Rick for anyone looking to build a website. He will come through with shining colors because of his great work ethic and his ability to understand what his Customers want. Rick Phillips will always be on my “A Team.”

Syracuse Memory Cafe

When we decided to start the Syracuse Memory Cafe we knew that a key component of getting the word out would be a website. We wanted a hands on local designer that we could meet with and explain our needs. Rick Phillips of Web Design by Rick fit the bill perfectly.

He was professional, responsive to our requests and delivered more than we expected. We were looking for a simple website and were delivered not only the website as we described it but also an e-mail address and a Facebook page. The turn-a-round time was very quick and Rick was easy to work with as we made refinements to the site.

We are very pleased with the results and would recommend Web Design by Rick to others.
